JUSTICE LEAGUE Reshoots To Lighten Up SNYDER's 'Too Dark' Cut, Says Actor

Ben Affleck talks working with two directors on Justice League Addresses reshoots

The film is still a unique set up as it has two directors, something not very common in the ever changing world of Hollywood and could be something fans notice. However, in May director Zack Snyder stepped back from the film after a personal tragedy, leading to Joss Whedon stepping up and helping to wrap up production on the movie.

"Zack has been a family drama, is removed, which is awful". While audiences have already been introduced to Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in previous movies, Justice League will be giving more screen time to characters such as Jason Momoa's Aquaman, Ray Fisher's Cyborg, and Ezra Miller's The Flash. "But I also don't think it's like "oh we need to fix this movie, it's a frightful mess", it's just "no, we want to go in a different direction". And the original ending of the movie from what I understand was, he was kind of playing the Silver Surfer role, with Darkseid playing the Galactus role, and the ending of the movie was a cliffhanger and Justice League 2 was going to be Justice League vs Darkseid, Ya know, Darkseid arrives at Earth. Joss Whedon ("Avengers") took over reshoots and star Ben Affleck, who plays Batman, calls the directorial team-up fortuitous. "I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we've done with Joss".

Slash Film's Peter Sciretta claims Darkseid winks will be downplayed in the new cut, and instead, Whedon has filmed a flashback scene with Robin Wright's Antiope (last seen in Wonder Woman) to lend extra credibility to Justice League Big Bad, Steppenwolf.

"I've never worked on a movie that didn't do reshoots", he said, noting, "'Argo, ' we did reshoots for a week and a half! But Affleck believes the Snyder/Whedon mash-up will work. They're hitting their stride. Originally, Justice League was going to be a two-part film. They're getting it right.

Indeed, filming began only a month after Batman v Superman hit theaters, and reports suggested that Warner Bros. was worrying that the dark and gritty tone of BvS may not be the best way forward for the DC Extended Universe-despite the fact that Justice League started filming under the assumption everyone would love BvS. "It's starting to feel like it's really working".
