The upcoming Justice League movie is getting a new director.

According to an AP report, Zack Snyder has been a figurehead in the budding DC Comics cinematic universe. He directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and has been the directer of the Justice League movie until now.

He's been forced to step down to deal with his daughter's suicide. He's stepping away to take care of family first which is certainly understandable in such a difficult time.

Joss Whedon will step in to take his place. He's directed a few Avenger movies for Marvel Comics, among others.
