Justice League is a 2017 film in the DC Extended Universe. It was noted for having reshoots done by Joss Whedon after Zack Snyder stepped down from director due to his daughter Autumn's suicide. Zack Snyder's Justice League, which is Snyder's original version, was released on HBO Max in March 2021 and is considered a better version.

The mixed reception of the theatrical cut resulted in a redirection with the DCEU starting with 2018's Aquaman. Despite this, Joss Whedon was credited as co-writer and Zack Snyder was credited as the sole director. Junkie XL's music was scrapped in favor of having Danny Elfman reuse the 1989 theme for Batman and the John Williams theme for Superman.
