More behind-the-scenes details regarding Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” have arrived, as has a new featurette regarding the film’s making. As part of a new cover story for Empire regarding the film, there’s a couple of key quotes and non-spoiler reveals.
Gal Gadot says despite the success of “Wonder Woman,” the screen time she has is comparable to the others:
“Diana serves as the glue of the team. She finds moments to support every one of the team and make them feel stronger or believe in themselves… [but] this is not a Wonder Woman movie.”
Ben Affleck talked about co-star Henry Cavill’s moustache which he’s had to keep during the reshoots for it to be digitally erased later:
“It was a full-on porn star moustache. He looked like a porn star from the ’70s, just with a better body. It’s a different twist on Superman.”
Affleck also says he’s glad the studio and film itself are moving away from trying to define an overly integrated cinematic universe:
“It maybe takes a bit of pressure off of this movie in terms of needing to define the DC Universe. It doesn’t feel like the whole world is riding on our shoulders so much.
[When Joss came onboard] I didn’t sense that we were moving towards something that felt like The Avengers. Joss is more than just an Avengers director. He’s a good storyteller, full stop. In mid-stream, Joss got on and part of what interested him was the puzzle aspect of it, fitting in pieces that weren’t there yet. He put the rest of the pieces in and gave it his own imprimatur.
The movie’s bigger in scale than any movie I’ve been involved with in my career. It feels massive in terms of the visual elements. That’s something that Zack is really good at. That will be admired.”
