    Zack Snyder is stepping away from the Justice League movie in the wake of a family tragedy. Borys Kit, writing for The Hollywood Reporter:

    Snyder tells The Hollywood Reporter he is stepping away from Justice League, Warner Bros.’ all-star DC Comics superhero mega-movie that is in postproduction, in order to deal with the sudden death of his daughter. Snyder’s wife, Deborah Snyder, who is a producer on Justice League, also is taking a break to focus on the healing of their family.

    Hope all the best for him and his family. With it being in postproduction I can't see this having an insane impact on how the movie turns out negatively.

    Absolutely terrible for his family to go through that. Glad he's taking time off to heal.

    Ugh I can't even fathom.

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    I can relate on some level. My dad died a few months ago from esophageal cancer and I still have a hard time giving a shit about anything at work (or in general). I imagine losing a daughter in this way is an entirely different kind of struggle that I'll hopefully never understand but on a base level, I get it. I wish his family the best in coping with this. Glad that he realized he needed to take a step back to grieve and heal.
