He considers the Warner Bros. team-up movie to be "an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes".
During the reshoot stage of the movie Zack Snyder left the film due to a family emergency and so sent the studio scrambling to find someone with great vision to finish off the reshoots and keep in line with the direction Snyder already established. According to the outlet, Joss Whedon, who's taken over for Zack Snyder, is making significant changes to the story and in particular, the ending.
Since the DC Extended Universe and Warner Bros. announced their plans for Justice League, it was always guaranteed to be a massive endeavor. Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was terrible.
From what we understand, the film was set to be more of an opening act for the aforementioned villain, but now, Steppenwolf's "credibility as the movie's big bad", has been strengthened. So that what I think ends up happening is that section of the movie and certainly that character, Cyborg, is a metaphor for being The Other. Well, they found their director in Joss Whedon who was just coming off of his Marvel Universe stint with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. and is now working on his first DC film in Batgirl. As the DCEU attempts to move away from the grim and gritty aesthetic of Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and closer to the earnest, optimistic worldview of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman, bringing in Whedon to lighten Justice League's tone made a tremendous amount of sense. "I've never worked on a movie that didn't do reshoots", Affleck said.

The team said in a statement it "vehemently" disagrees with the rally and is in no way associated with it. Charlottesville has declared a local emergency due to the conflicts between the two groups.
Based on what Ben Affleck had to say about the finished product for Justice League, it seems that the future is looking bright for the DCEU.
"This is a really nice time to work in DC. They beckon, they are doing things correctly, and it starts to give really the impression that it's going to work".
As you'd expect with a film of this magnitude, there's been plenty of rumour and speculation surrounding said reshoots, with reports claiming they will greatly alter the film, while members of the cast such as Ray Fisher and Ben Affleck have played down the speculation by calling them standard. Justice League is produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns.
