Despite rumors that he would be returning to the set of Justice League to assist Joss Whedon in finishing the film, it looks like Zack Snyder has stepped for good. Speaking to Wired about his latest film Snow Steam Iron, a short film that he has shot entirely on an iPhone, the director provided an update in regards to where he stands with Justice League.
Snyder stressed that returning to production would be “unfair in a lot of ways” before going into further detail: “I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job. But I’ve kind of just let them do their thing.”

20th Century Fox has done quite well for themselves in the Marvel movie department over the last 20 years or so.
