Comic book artist Rob Liefeld is in the hot seat right now as the creator of Deadpool took to Twitter to offer up (troll?) that he heard WB tested Joss Whedon's Justice League movie this week, which has seen the internet explode with reaction.
Heard Warner's tested Whedon Justice League this week...— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) September 1, 2017
Fans responded with various comments and memes pointing out that Zack Snyder is still listed as the official director on Justice League.
Joss Whedon was recently given an official writers credit on the movie with the Justice League screenplay listed by Chris Terrio and Whedon.
There has been a lot of speculation and rumors surrounding the Justice League movie regarding just whose movie it really is, as Zack Snyder departed the film over a family tradgedy with Joss Whedon coming on board to do rewrites and reshoots. Some claims online have stated Joss Whedon did extensive rewrites and reshoots as well as completely changed the ending.
Maybe typical of Deadpool, Liefeld was just having some online fun? Or not.

I'm calling those clickbait titles now.
Your level of maturity is embarassing for your age. No wonder you make a living of drawing satire cartoons instead of you know...working— Ghost (@ghostalfz) September 1, 2017

Justice League has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder, with the story by Chris Terrio and Zack Snyder, the screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
