Could Justice League movie's male stars and director doom it with their records?

Two weeks ago, when the Harvey Weinstein scandal had already begun making headlines, John Nolte at Breitbart pointed to how the upcoming Justice League movie's got at least a few problems of its own with abusive male contributors who could very easily doom it:
Justice League’s biggest problem might turn out to be its notorious War on Women credentials. The maelstrom around Harvey Weinstein is showing no signs of slowing down. And while the naming of names is still being actively discouraged by the leftists who infest a corrupt Hollywood institution and their media toadies, cracks in the dam are, thankfully, beginning to appear.

Three of those cracks are owned by Justice League.

First there is Ben Affleck. Hollywood’s Batman has now been dubbed Buttman due to a series of public accusations of groping. Affleck has apologized for one incident, but he has ignored allegations from 2015 that he serially grabbed women’s butts at the Golden Globes. And in order to protect him (and Justice League), so has the entertainment media.

Second on the list is Jason Momoa. Because the Internet is forever, Hollywood’s Aquaman recently apologized for a joke about rape he made some six years ago.

Lastly (and possibly worstly — if that’s a word), there is co-director Whedon, another Justice League player who finds rape high-larious, a self-described feminist who has spent years lording his woken superiority over the rest of us only to demolish the pedestal he so carefully crafted for himself by calling a woman a dog, shaming the looks of an actress who dared think for herself, and mocking the attractiveness of — brace yourselves — female cancer survivors.
And let's not forget Whedon's adultery, along with the awful script draft he once wrote up for the Wonder Woman movie. Yes, I'm afraid the movie does look tainted (and in hindsight, the Avengers movies Whedon directed are too), and the whole scandal could cause it some trouble, because it's not as easy to separate art from the artist when dealing with live action performers. We'll see what happens in the few weeks when it opens, but these reminders sure don't make me feel encouraged to bother about the film either. Now it's clear why some moviegoers don't find Affleck very appealing.
