A few months ago, a personal tragedy led to Zack Snyder stepping away from the helm of “Justice League” which had wrapped principal photography and was in early post-production.
Snyder handed the reigns over to Joss Whedon who stepped in to handle the already scheduled additional photography on the film. At the time it was said the reshoots wouldn’t be that extensive, but there was difficulty with actor’s scheduling.
Since then of course, reports as to the extent of the reshoots and how much they will impact the final film’s tone and narrative seemingly grow larger and wilder by the day. It has gotten to the point that there’s confusion as to how much of Snyder’s original vision will remain in the final film.
Quite a lot according to both actress Gal Gadot and a recent report from SuperheroNews.com. The latter said this week that: “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” and it appears as if Whedon hasn’t deviated from the plan and is just filming some additional material.
Gadot meanwhile tells Rolling Stone that Whedon can’t really change the tone much because so much of the movie is already in place: “Look, Joss, to my understanding, was Zack’s choice to finish the movie. And the tone can’t be completely different because the movie was already shot. Joss is just fine-tuning.”
“Justice League” opens in cinemas on November 17th.
