Joss Whedon Turns Judas In Fans’ Eyes As He Likes Negative Tweets About Justice League

Written by


As we all know, when Zack Snyder stepped down from Justice League, after the tragic death of his daughter, Joss Whedon was called in to complete the film. After months of complicated reshoots and rewrites, the film finally releases tomorrow. Now, reviews are out and both Snyder and Whedon have come under scrutiny by film critics. However, fans are most upset that Whedon has taken to liking negative tweets about the film on Twitter.

Joss Whedon Turns Judas In Fans' Eyes As He Likes Negative Tweets About Justice League

Both DC and Marvel fans are extremely passionate about their comic book films (ask James Gunn). It seems both parties can argue the positives and negatives of both franchises for hours on end.

Whedon, who originally helped helm the Marvel franchise by directing Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, seemed the perfect choice to step in to help guide DC’s Justice League towards the same critical praise. However, things haven’t gone according to plan. While Rotten Tomatoes has yet to reveal its score rating, many publications have posted negative reviews and comments about the film. Sadly, it seems Whedon has liked a few of them.

DC fans are raging on Twitter and have resorted to dubbing the director “Judas Whedon”.

“You are absolutely repulsive. How dare you even like this tweet?” one fan said.

Whether or not the likes are intentional remains a mystery. It’s possible that Joss Whedon is just liking the negative remarks as a joke and that he doesn’t actually endorse the statements. Regardless, he has been very quiet about Justice League. Producer Charles Roven later said that Whedon worked on “15, 20%” of the finished movie. Could it be that he actually doesn’t like the final result himself?

    These rotten MTFers! Why is it that every single time some controversial sh-t just conveniently seems to happen before the DC film is released pissing us all off on the grandest scale even before we get a chance to experience it for ourselves?

    These rotten bastards.

      No, Sa-Bo-Tage! They deliberately go out of their way to try to ruin each and every single fan’s experience to simply go and watch a highly anticipated fan boy and girl dream with their negative criticism and opinions.

      Of course, they easily influence these weak of minds slideliners with their negativety manipulating their every thought and emotions of others, trying to take away our satisfaction of enjoying what seems to be a real good movie.

      Oh, I will definitely take some friends and family with me when I go and experience it all for myself in IMAX 3D!

    There is a video out there of Grace Randolph saying she has a trusted source that claims he was a persona not grata among the cast (which could explain why NO ONE talks about him and always defend Zack very strongly) and also how all the sexual WW jokes were written and decided by him.

    Who know if its true or not, but hey there is a certain “sexual” little joke in JL that is LITERALLY the same in Age of Ultron but with Black Widow. Just saying.

    It was actually pretty good for me, especially that time when Batman wanted to resurrect Superman the same way Lex did with Zod and everyone especially Wonder Woman went along with the plan reluctantly. Bats felt like that kid every friend has who convinces them all to invest money on networking, only it doesn’t end so well for the rest but in the end, they were still super friends & nothing can change that despite whatever shit they give each other.

      Whedon, this guy is awesome! Who wasn’t captivated with Season 5 of Angel.

      But why would he go “there” by liking something he should not have failing to comprehend the consequences of his actions.

      Tensions are already running high and he just added fuel to the fire.

    • Marco J Klaasen

      Nah, visually Snyder’s work is amazing but after the harsh criticism he received for BvS, maybe, just maybe he would have gotten the chance to fix what he have broken and it make up with JL but he didn’t get the chance to do so completely.

      Yes! After all this BS, this is exactly what I thinking about. 😏

      And this is what we can expect from Snyder’s work, there’s always a Director’s Cut, Extended Cut or Ultimate Cut we can look forward to after we have watched it on the big screen.

      Honestly I’m a big DC fan and I hate how Marvels movies are so much better than theirs. They make it look as though Captain America will hand Batman’s butt to him. That’s not right. I think Marvel just started their cinematic universe better.

      Yes! The MCU is better put together but I’m always left dissatisfied with their movies and the DCEU have came so late to the party and it was not even fashionably.

      These Marvel and DC bastards are just milking us with every single crud they release and clearly they are not respecting the source material to build properly on it.

      DC’s Animations just sets the standard of what these movies could have been.

      So Disney’s in works to buy the rights to the X-Men so the Scarlet Witch can become a mutant and the rest of them intrigrated into the universe.

      And maybe we can also see Deadpool in the MCU in the near future. Wouldn’t it be cool to see him and Nick Fury together in the same film? 😏

      Think they gearing up to reboot the MCU bro. The Infinity war will end it. They’ll probably start again with all heroes available.

      Bloody well done. The critics opinions means nothing!

      If you would consider everything I said up until now with understanding, you’ll know the true context of why I have mentioned Rotten Tomatoes’ rating of the JL.

  4. Erik Raineri

    I honestly don’t like Whedon’s input in the movie :( It’s not stupid fanboy hate, but the contrast with Snyder’s style is just too big and annoying sometimes :(

  5. William Davis

    Or how about… he likes constructive criticism? I know, I know… in this day and age, nobody can criticize anybody or anything, but you know what? Criticism when done in a constructive manner CAN actually help someone improve their product. I’d like to think that is the case here, but then, I’m not Joss, so who knows… or freakin’ cares.

  6. The Southern Nerd

    The SJWs went on a jihad accusing Whedon of being a rape fetshist because of some of his stories. I guess they were right because he just RAPED MY HOPES FOR THIS MOVIE!

  7. Dennis Nelsson-Smith

    Joss is one of the few whose opinions are truly needed – if the directors can’t be allowed to acknowledge flaws in their creations, how will movies improve?

  8. Bryan Foerster

    I noticed both Whedon’s and Snyder’s direction (style) in the film and both elements are what is now the film Justice League, a film I happen to have enjoyed.
    Not the best, not the worst, I blame the studio for a too short run time and overall a good sequel to BVS.
    My biggest complaint is how they didn’t take full advantage of a certain character’s situation and exploit it fully, a lost opportunity to flesh out a larger spectrum for the character.

  9. Tomas Vozzi

    Acknowledging what “Rotten Tomatoes” said bout the movie after being bought by Disney, all the “desperate” propaganda and the “bad shit” that has being reviewing… to me , this was BEYOND better that any Marvel movie so far…in fact, was better that Wonder Woman. The fact that Whedon took place after Snyder, made this movie what i’ve being expecting since ´89. It has Snyder written all over the place, the flashes , the stunts, the action, the background, but when it comes to jokes and show what’s all about Whedon made an excelent job.
    Like i said, to me,this is the best SuperHeroe movie by far till this day.

      Please share whatever drugs you’re on. You’re clearly on some powerful shit. Being as unbiased as I can possibly be, Justice League was good, but it was spectacularly above average. Cyborg and Steppenwolf were CGI clay, the Motherboxes functioned nothing like they do in the comics and were just “this can do anything I want” wish macguffins. The dialogue was painful at times. I didn’t hate it, but it definitely was only good, not great and definitely not “beyond better” than any Marvel movie so far.

    • Antoneo Hernandez

      “Fuck the source material”. That’s a good thing to say making a comic-book movie. That’s just why Marvel is ahead!

    • Stone Nick

      Ragnarok was based on the source material? It was a rape of the source material .but all the media call that garbage a masterpiece.

    • Tomas Vozzi

      yo yo yo, everybody calm down. i said “TO ME” this is better than the Marvel things that come out so far. there’s no need for violence and crappy talk.
      The Superman pic from top it’s a Meme. Ragnarok indeed fucked up every source material but still it’s a great movie.

    Just came home from seeing this with my kid. She loved it and that all that matters to me. Wore her Flash hoodie and hat had a soda and ate popcorn the way its supposed to be.

  11. Joshua Phillip Jones

    Which is funny because whedon’s changes are the better elements in the movie.

    But it’s clear that this was a Zack Snyder film that was edited into a Josh Whedon movie.

    Also the CGI upper lip is hilariously noticeable

  12. Paul M Davies

    I went Friday to see it. Being a dick I laughed at the people with Superman and batman stuff on. THEN realised when i got home I was wearing my superman boxers.

  13. Chris Adraneda

    Saw it Thursday night with my son. It was good not great but I enjoyed the hell outta this movie. Sure it had issues like any movie but still a fun ride imho. It’s certainly not the worst modern Comic book movie **cough…Wolverine Origins…cough** With the tonal shift I think from this point DCEU has been course corrected. I remain hopeful. I’m a huge JLA fan and to see these characters on screen in a decent film is a good start.

  14. Christopher E Brown

    People take the wrong things too seriously these days, and turn a blind eye to things that they SHOULD be upset about. It’s just a movie, and people are losing their minds over whether it’s great or horrible, and whose fault it is or isn’t.
