    It's not. HR can't do anything about a movie's direction. That falls on who hired the director and approved the script changes.


    It’s interesting to me that some people are comparing this to John Boyega speaking out.
    What John Boyega dealt with doesn't even COMPARE to this.

    Disney PANDERED to the trolls when it came to John and marginalized him. In EVERYTHING.

    Remember Abrams had to FIGHT to get him cast.

    In John's case EVERYBODY got to see it happen.

    The insults, death threats, calls to shoot up movie theaters and so on.

    John went scorch Earth. He went through 4 years of that.

    So basically, after saying NOTHING negative about the production during all of 2018 and 2019, right after Fisher gets a lowball offer for a [diminished] part in the Flash movie, he coincidentally remembers just then that Whedon was toxic and abusive? And since saying that, has offered scant evidence of his claim while not mentioning that he was trying to renegotiate for a higher salary? So much for this being all about "accountability > entertainment"... seems like its more about " $$$ > having principles"

    That said, i have no doubt that Whedon was a jerk to work for during these reshoots. But 'toxic' and 'abusive' are incendiary terms to use, especially in the #metoo era. I doubt this was a very pleasant experience for Whedon, either. Ultimately the blame lies at the fault of studio execs who suddenly realized that Snyder was never going to give them kid-friendly superhero movies that would generate big bucks in merchandising sales, despite it being obvious to everyone else from the get-go.

    I also think the decision to limit the runtime to 2 hours for a movie that has to introduce 3 new superheroes AND their supporting casts AND the villain AND the macguffin, AND deal with the resurrection of Superman, made it impossible for this film to be successful on top of the already dauntingly brief timeframe Whedon had to work with.

    Going from what Grace Randolph talked on her videos about the Snyder Cut, some big part of it was loyalty for Snyder, what probably was made bigger by Whedon behavior on set. Apparently Cavill was the only one that wasn't that upset about Snyder replacement. But again, all this is only backed up by what Randolph have said on her videos. Watch any of her videos about the Snyder Cut and you will probably hear her talking about it.
