WB’s next DCEU film is the highly anticipated ‘Justice League‘, and it’s been plagued with rumors about how extensive the reshoots have been. Ever since director Zack Snyder had to leave directorial duties to Joss Whedon due to a family tragedy, people have been questioning if the film will still feel like a “Snyder” film. According to a new report, it seems like Zack’s vision is still intact.
Apparently although the film will be finished by Joss Whedon, it’ll still be Snyder’s vision. Most of what was planned for the reshoots is still a part of Snyder’s vision for the film. Mark Hughes of Superhero News, talks about what his source have told him about the additional photography on the DCEU’s next film.
- “As of right now, despite the fact that there’s been some extended time and it’s like ‘ok, if this is still – why are they still doing shoots on this,’ there’s been a lot of downtime in between shooting because of people’s schedules – they have not been shooting this entire time. The amount of content that has been shot and is being shot is still pretty much what they expected and figured was going to be happening. They haven’t said ‘oh, we need to add additional – we need to do a whole bunch more,’ or anything like that at this point, so, the footage and the amount of footage in the film, as of right now, the majority of the footage that you’re going to see on the screen is still the footage that was previously shot during principal photography…
He also went on to talk more about why the reshoots are taking longer than most other films.
- I know I’ve seen people worried and say ‘why is it taking so long,’ it’s because this is post – this is reshooting and filming that requires people’s schedules to line up, getting things in order, so it has not been as easy as they expected it to be when this was all being planned months ago.”
Although his sources are usually reliable, nothing said here has been confirmed. It’s not unlikely however that what he’s saying is in fact true. As it was said when the director switch up happened that the reshoots planned were going to be done by Snyder anyway. They could’ve been stretching the truth a bit of course, but I think that Snyder’s vision mostly staying intact will help the film feel like a smooth and not extremely noticeable collaboration between two diffrent directors.
