The DC Extended Universe has been under a lot of pressure to produce a great film after “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” received negative reviews and massive backlash, but Ben Affleck has assured fans that “Justice League” will deliver.

Affleck, who plays Batman, told Entertainment Weekly that “Justice League” might have been helmed by two different directors — Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon — but the end result will still be great. “It’s a little bit unorthodox,” he admitted. “Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was horrible. For the movie, the best person we could’ve possibly found was Joss. We got really lucky that he stepped in.”

As a result, “Justice League” became “an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes.” Personally, Affleck said he has never had that experience before, but he loves working with Snyder and equally loves all the things they did with Whedon.

There were also rumors that the film is facing several issues, and that is why reshoots needed to be made. But Affleck brushed aside these rumors and said that doing reshoots is normal for every film. “‘Argo,’ we did reshoots for a week and a half! Four days on ‘Gone Baby Gone!’” he said. “This is a really nice time to work in DC. They’re hitting their stride. They’re getting it right. It’s starting to feel like it’s really working.”

Snyder departed from “Justice League” so he could spend more time with his family. At first, he thought that working on the film would help him cope with the loss of his daughter, Autumn, who committed suicide in March at the age of 20.

But Snyder has admitted that he was wrong. He told The Hollywood Reporter, “In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it. The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realization … I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.”

“Justice League” will hit theaters on Nov. 17.
