It looks like the DC Universe is in a state of disaster and director Seth Grahame-Smith leaving “The Flash” may only be one of the major triggers. A few recent rumors hint Justice League: Part 1 and Part 2 might also share the same fate, anytime soon, since Zack Snyder is on the verge of losing the movie due to DC universe troubles .
Movie Pilot reports that the main reason behind Director Seth Grahame-Smith’s quitting “The Flash” project is his “creative differences” with Warner Bros. There are significant disagreements happening within Warner Bros following the negative responses that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice got. Grahame-Smith has yet to speak publicly about this news.
In the meantime, Grahame-Smith’s step is feeding up rumors that filmmakers are being suspended from their projects in turn, by Warner Bros. One of those rumors convey that James Zack Snyder is about to leave the director’s chair of Justice League: Part 1 and Part 2.
Birth Movies Death reports that an inside source has revealed that Warner Bros. executives are in continuous disagreement with Snyder over his plans for Justice League. However, since Justice League: Part 1 was all ready to begin shooting, days after Dawn of Justice was released, Warner Bros. did not have the option of removing Snyder from Justice League: Part 1 and Part 2 or delaying the movie to make changes. As a result, Justice League: Part 1 will push through amidst the rumored fights with Zack Snyder as the director.
At this point in time, it can only be expected that after the failure of Batman vs. Superman, Warner Bros has set very high box office expectations just to put the DC filmmakers under a lot of pressure. And in such scenario, Justice League: Part 1 and Part 2 will be no exceptions.
