Director Zack Snyder reportedly didn't leave "Justice League" of his own volition, despite what was later said.

"Justice League" came out in theaters in November 2017, and it's just coming out on digital this week. The director drama was recently revived because reporter Josh L. Dickey -- who has written for Mashable, Variety, The Wrap, the Associated Press, and more -- is leaving the industry, and he decided to drop some truth bombs on his way out the door.

Since he has no f*cks left to give, Dickey decided to clarify his own Zack Snyder report for Mashable from July 2017.

Dickey tweeted, on February 10, 2018, that Zack Snyder was actually fired from the DC film universe just over a year go. It had first been reported by The Hollywood Reporter in May 2017 that Snyder was stepping away from "Justice League" to grieve the death of his daughter, who had died in March, and Joss Whedon would finish the movie. A few months later, in July 2017, Dickey reported for Mashable that Snyder would "take a significantly smaller role with the franchise going forward."

Collider's Matt Goldberg added that he'd "heard similar things from separate sources over the last year as well. I also heard that Snyder's rough-cut of the movie was 'unwatchable' (a word that jumped out at me because it's rare you hear two separate sources use the exact same adjective). Of course, even if that's true, there's obviously more to the story since rough cuts can be fixed up with reshoots, rewrites, etc."

The idea that Snyder was fired from the DCEU -- while still retaining producer credits on several upcoming films -- isn't exactly shocking, but the timing of personal events last year complicated the story.

Snyder directed "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," and he's still credited as director of "Justice League." He also has producer credits for "Wonder Woman," "Suicide Squad," "Aquaman," and "Wonder Woman 2." As of February 2018, more than 170,000 fans have signed a Change.org petition to see his director's cut of "Justice League."

The movie is available on digital Tuesday, Feb. 13.
