When it was revealed earlier this that Zack Snyder’s original cut of Justice League would be coming to HBO Max, it was said that Snyder and company would not be undertaking any additional photography as the filmmaker looked to put the finishing touches to his DC team-up.
However, we learned last month that plans had changed and reshoots would indeed be taking place, with an estimated budget anywhere up to $70 million, and now Snyder has officially confirmed on social media that cameras are once again rolling on Justice League almost two-and-a-half years after he stepped down from the film first time around.

This is the first official word on the reshoots, but it is believed that Ben Affleck (Batman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Amber Heard (Mera), Joe Manganiello (Deathstroke) and Jared Leto (The Joker) will all be involved in the additional photography. Perhaps we’ll be able to add to those names over the coming days…
In Justice League, 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 is directed by Zack Snyder and features 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, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf, Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, and Ray Porter as Darkseid.
