* {{Deleted Scene}}s: [[http://www.reelanarchy.com/how-much-snyder-cut-footage-is-actually-in-justice-league/ A pretty sizeable number of scenes]] that were filmed by Creator/ZackSnyder have been scrapped when the film was modified in post-production under Creator/JossWhedon, including the {{Missing Trailer Scene}}s below. Some scenes have been replaced by Whedon's reshoots also, to "brighten" them as much as possible and insert his dialogues (or, as some speculate, to try having Whedon get a director credit per DGA rules like Richard Lester had when he took over ''Film/SupermanII'' -- it didn't happen here). The theatrical film lasts 120 minutes, the unreleased Director's Cut of Snyder has been confirmed to last a whopping ''[[http://www.comicsblog.fr//images/galerie/bigimage/JL-snyder-cut.jpg 214 minutes]]''.

*** In November 2019, Cavill stated that "''Justice League'' didn't work".

** Various other DCEU creative staff have expressed disappointment with how the production was handled and how the finale movie turned out. This was partially because of developing their movie to pair with Justice League in an organic way only to see everything change and most things get removed, and partially out of solidarity with Creator/ZackSnyder, who helped to get them hired and encouraged their vision. Creator/JamesWan and Creator/JasonMomoa have said ''Film/{{Aquaman}}'' was based on Snyder's original version of the film, while Creator/PattyJenkins said she barely recognized the characters who came from her movie ''Film/WonderWoman''.

* HostilityOnTheSet: Concerning the 2017 reshoots, both on set and years after they happened. Ray Fisher criticized Creator/JossWhedon on Website/{{Twitter}}, saying that his behavior on the set was "abusive and unprofessional". This was backed by Creator/JasonMomoa, Creator/GalGadot, and several film crew members. Fisher also criticized Creator/GeoffJohns and Jon Berg for allowing Whedon's behavior, and singled out Johns in particular for "making thinly veiled threats" to his [Fisher's] career when they were filming the reshoots in Los Angeles and "belittling and admonishing" him and his agent when they attempted to take their grievances up the proper chain of command. The affair was apparently serious enough for Creator/WarnerMedia to conduct an investigation on it. Fisher later elaborated, stating that Whedon, Johns, Berg and producer Toby Emmerich had several non-white actors (Iris West, Elinore Stone, Ryan Choi) deliberately cut and had the complexion of another digitally altered. The latter claims were contested by Whedon's representative.

In early 2021, the case snowballed when Creator/CharismaCarpenter (who was also interviewed during the investigation) spoke out against Whedon for his behavior towards her back in the days of the ''Franchise/BuffyVerse'' and thanked Fisher for speaking out, and she gained support from a large part of the cast of the ''[=BuffyVerse=]'' with some of them also accusing Whedon.


** Joss Whedon has not directed or writted a film since, and the film's failure coupled with accusations (chiefly by Creator/RayFisher) of creating a [[HostilityOnTheSet hostile work environment]] (without much further details) have shaken his reputation. He produced and wrote the first season of the series ''Series/TheNevers'' for Creator/{{HBO}}, then dropped out in November 2020 amidst Creator/WarnerMedia's investigation on the hostile work environment of ''Justice League'', and the show that he developed for Creator/{{Freeform}}, ''Pippa Smith: Grown-Up Detective'', ended up being scrapped at the same time.
