It looks like Zack Snyder won’t be reuniting with his frequent collaborator Larry Fong on Justice League Part One, with cinematographer Fabian Wagner set to step in as his replacement for the DC ensemble, which has commenced production today.
The news broke courtesy of Wagner’s resume on his agency website, with Fong then taking to Twitter to reveal that scheduling conflicts are preventing him from linking up with Snyder once again:
Schedule conflicts are not uncommon in this biz. But don’t worry, the amazingly talented Mr. Wagner will kill it. https://t.co/oDQdQZ7U2p
