'Justice League' Producer On The Film's Tumultuous Shoot

'Justice League' Producer On The Film's Tumultuous Shoot”

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

Back in May 2017, original Justice League director Zack Snyder stepped away from the film to be with his loved ones after a heartbreaking family tragedy.

Between the director change and the amount of reshoots, coupled with the poor reception of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the production of the film has not been without its issues. Bringing in Joss Whedon - famous for his involvement in the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - fit that debate agenda perfectly. That imprint that Joss had, some aspect of it is going to come out in the direction, but the actors are already pretty much down the road on their arcs.

Despite the fact that principal photography was pretty much completed, many believed that Whedon was going to give the film a major overhaul. Let's hope the latter applies to Justice League when it opens November 17. "There's only so much you can do with the other 15, 20 percent of the movie".

What was done with that fraction, we're told, was mostly to put a little more focus on dialogue and character development.

The cast have consistently reiterated that the film is Zack Snyder's, and that Joss Whedon simply wrapped it up, and added a few finishing touches in line with Snyder's overall vision.

"The goal is to make sure when you're watching the movie, it all feels cohesive", Roven said.

Obviously these are still rather arbitrary numbers without him going in and actually calculating screentime (if that's even possible on this type of Frankenstein movie), but it sounds like Whedon came in and batted clean-up while injecting his own trademark charm into the movie.

So, to unpack that comment, if 80-85 percent of the film is "what was originally shot", then that's the work of Zack Snyder. As much as 20 percent of the current cut of the film consists of the reshoots. "Now that the movie is coming out, it's a hard time for Zack because he couldn't really see his vision all the way through".

Deborah Snyder also comments on a possible Justice League 2, of which producer Charles Roven has mentioned as well as J.K. Simmons, noting Justice League 2 "would be incredible", but the article further says "but DC's lineup is already plenty busy"-which more than likely means Justice League 2 is dependent on the success of the first film".
