Joss Whedon has stepped in for Zack Snyder as the director of “Justice League.” Not only is he reportedly making the movie lighter in tone, but he may be changing the ending.

Potential spoilers are ahead.

According to /Film, the movie has been altered to focus on Steppenwolf as the main threat. Reportedly, before Steppenwolf was more like the Silver Surfer, heralding the coming of Darkseid.

Justice League stars Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (the Flash), Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and a host of others.

“Justice League” scraps script?

Reports are that Warner Brothers will watch how Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” does before pushing forward with a “Justice League” film. But it turns out they may have bigger problems. Badass Digest is reporting that the studio is scrapping the current script, which featured Darkseid as the villain, for a completely new script.

The old script reportedly had Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the Flash as the core heroes.

Yep the rumors continue to fly. Before, there was news that Darkseid will be the villain. Now, here’s the supposed roster from the “Justice League” film, which is still without a director, from Cosmic Book News:

• Superman is essentially the same character from Man of Steel, and Zack Snyder is consulting regarding the writing of the character.
• Batman: The strategist of the group. Batman doesn’t really want to be involved with these super powered beings he considers too powerful. Easily the most complex written.
• Wonder Woman: She has only been in man’s world a few short months. The Wonder Woman script Michael Goldenberg is developing will be set before the Justice League movie.
• Green Lantern: Will be Ryan Reynold’s character from the Green Lantern movie, but will be freshly written with a more serious tone.
• Flash: The most popular hero in civilian eyes who loves media attention, but when called upon is very serious.
• Martian Manhunter: Alien who has lived on Earth in secret for over a hundred years who has knowledge of Darkseid and his reign. 
• Aquaman: Will be the King of Atlantis who has a key role in the film.
• There will also be a heavy military presence in the film which in future rewrites could include characters featured in Man of Steel or even Amanda Waller (Angela Bassett) of which neither are included in the first draft.
• Alfred Pennyworth is in the film in a minor appearance.
• Lois Lane is also in the film in a cameo.
• Darkseid’s Elite will be featured who go up against the Justice League early on in the film.

If this is the roster, looks like we’re getting a mix of old and new actors playing the characters.

The Latino Review isn’t citing any sources so take this for what it’s worth. Despite not having a director yet or frankly any actors besides apparently Henry Cavill playing Superman in both films, “Justice League” may have its villain. According to reports, Darkseid will be the villain in the film. If this is true and he’s done right, he could be quite the villain. Other than that, we only expect that the JL will include Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was rumored to play Batman, though his reps deny that. No word on whether Ryan Reynolds will play Hal in the film.
