Patty Jenkins’ Harsh Comments About Joss Whedon’s Justice League

Justice League

Justice League is a film that has stayed relevant for the wrong reasons. We have gone over the story time and time again about how Joss Whedon had to come in when Zack Snyder had to step down. Unfortunately, he drastically altered the vision that Snyder had with extensive reshoots. In the end, it was a critical and commercial failure.

It is safe to say that Snyder was not a fan of the end result. He spent so much time releasing images and information about how his version was different. This led to the Release The Snyder Cut movement that a lot of people saw as comical. But 2020 has been a strange one that included the announcement of the Justice League Snyder Cut on HBO Max for 2021.

There is another filmmaker from the DCEU that is also not a fan of the theatrical cut of Justice League. This is none other than the director of the Wonder Woman films, Patty Jenkins. In a conversation about the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 with Cinemablend, Patty Jenkins gave her opinion about Justice League. Especially with how Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was handled.


“The Justice League? … No, I think that all of us DC directors tossed that out just as much as the fans did. But also, I felt that that version contradicted my first movie in many ways, and this current movie, which I was already in production on. So then, what are you going to do? I was like… you would have to play ball in both directions in order for that to work. The only thing I have done, and have always tried to do, is — I knew, when Zack was doing Justice League, where she sort of ends up.” Said Jenkins.

“So I always tried… like, I didn’t change her suit, because I never want to… I don’t want to contradict his films, you know? But yet, I have to have my own films, and he’s been very supportive of that. And so, I think that that Justice League was kind of an outlier. They were trying to turn one thing into, kind of, another. And so then it becomes, ‘I don’t recognize half of these characters. I’m not sure what’s going on.’”

Jenkins has a point as to why she has issues with Justice League. She felt like Whedon had contradicted what she had done in her first film. Disliked the direction that he took Diana in the film. Overall her depiction did not line up with the way that she envisioned her. Lucky for her and many others, we will see exactly the way that she was supposed to be depicted on HBO Max next spring.
