Last month it was revealed that Justice League would be undergoing some additional photography ahead of its release this November, with Joss Whedon taking over the reins from Zack Snyder owing to the passing of Snyder’s daughter.
Well, according to Batman-on-Film, cameras are now once again rolling on the DC blockbuster, although apparently these “are not your your ‘standard’ pick-ups” and are actually described as “significant” reshoots and that the movie “is going to be changed tremendously after this new round of filming”. If rumours are to be believed, these reshoots will take place throughout all of June and July, and possibly into August as well.
As previously announced, Whedon has written the additional scenes per Zack Snyder’s instruction, and will be “adhering to the style and tone and the template that Zack set”, rather than putting his own stamp on the material.
Meanwhile, in casting news, Wonder Woman star Robin Wright has revealed that she’ll be joining co-star Connie Neilsen in the film as they reprise the roles of General Antiope and Queen Hippolyta, with Wright stating to the Los Angeles Times that: “[You’ll see] more of the story, you get some of the history.”
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League will reunite Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope alongside J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard (The Danish Girl) as Mera, Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) as Vulko, Kiersey Clemons (Dope) as Iris West, Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Steppenwolf, and Julian Lewis Jones (Stella) and Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones) in as-yet-unrevealed roles.
