The superhero team-up movie started off with Zack Snyder in the director's chair, but he left the project in May due to a family tragedy. 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.
The two-director situation is unusual, but shouldn't have fans too anxious, Affleck said, diplomatically calling Justice League "an interesting product of two directors". Sciretta also claims that a flashback scene was shot featuring Robin Wright's Wonder Woman character, Antiope, that beefs up Steppenwolf's credibility as the movie's big bad, rather than just an opening act for Darkseid in a future film. For the movie, the best person we could've possibly found was Joss.
We got details of Batman's Flying Fox earlier today, an enormous vehicle with the "maneuverability of a jet" but enough space to stow away three Batmobiles.
"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".
Arriving Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. "I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we've done with Joss".
Rumors suggest that Whedon has kept most of Snyder's action set-pieces intact but has rewritten some dialogue and helped make the movie's narrative flow better between the action sequences. While there were certainly other aspects of the reshoots that were also accounted for, none of it seems to be an indication of problems with the film itself as a whole. "Four days on 'Gone Baby Gone!'". This is a really nice time to work in DC. They're getting it right.
The DCEU has witnessed its share of change, especially Justice League with its director change. "It's starting to feel like it's really working".
