Justice League: those major reshoots are changing the ending

Justice League: those major reshoots are changing the ending”

After a family tragedy that forced Zack Snyder to step away from Justice League, Warner Bros were quick to announce that the movie was in safe hands with Joss Whedon stepping in to complete the filming. Thus, substantial changes to the film were ordered.

"The original ending of the movie from what I understand was that he was kind of playing the Silver Surfer role and Darkseid playing kind of the Galactus role, and the ending of the movie was a cliffhanger and Justice League 2 was going to be Justice League vs. Darkseid".

According to Slash Film, the ending has been significantly reworked and won't conclude with the previously teased cliffhanger that would have set up Darkseid as the big bad of the sequel.

Here's a poster for the movie, while you're here. Steppenwolf is trying to get the Mother Boxes and he's trying to get the earth ready for the coming of Darkseid. Hence, Joss Whedon's reshoots include completely changing the ending of Justice League.

"I know that with Ray (Fisher), the young man who plays Victor, there were some adjustments that they made in terms of the tone of that character". Furthermore, reshoots have saved many a movie in the past, so it's far too early to call how this one will turn out. This puts Warner a spot of bother as they must now digitally remove Superman's facial hair. Plans that now seem to feature a lot of Wonder Woman.

Here's the latest trailer for the film, if you missed it. It appears that Wonder Woman's influence on Justice League doesn't stop there though.

That certainly fits with what we've seen. It would seem that this was actually part of the reshoots Whedon had done, used to flesh out Steppenwolf more. It's the convoluted plot and messy storytelling that was the downfall of BvS; otherwise, I thought it was a solid movie. Hopefully, Justice League will benefit from the best of both worlds. Writing properly developed characters is what he does best.

In the case of the DCEU - where critical backlash matched with strong fan support always causes a little extra drama - Suicide Squad's reshoots and appparent tonal change from early marketing, resulting in another critical thrashing, means the word "reshoots" carries even more baggage than it would for other franchises, so it wasn't surprising that the announcement that Justice League would be going through additional photography, the rumor mill started turning.
