Mario-Francisco Robles of SplashReport has reported that Justice League has undergone major reshoots with more major reshoots on the way. These reshoots, according to Robles’ source, are “significant”, and that the movie, after this next round of reshoots will have “been remade…twice.”
Umberto Gonzalez from The Wrap has refuted this report. According to Gonzalez’s source, “[t]here has been no additional photography to date on ‘Justice League’” and adds that, while reshoots are scheduled, it is part of the normal course of events for a movie of this size.
Competing sources on a story like this can be confusing, but, personally, I would be quicker to believe Umberto Gonzalez on this story. Fans of Shanlian on Batman will know that Gonzalez has a solid track record when it comes to DC properties, and something like major reshoots would not be difficult for a trade reporter like Gonzalez to uncover.
Reshoots are definitely on their way for Justice League, however. This will surely set off many blogs and twitter warriors saying all kinds of things about the state of Zack Snyder’s next adventure with our DC heroes, but that’s just par for the course at this point.
I do think that there will be some things that will need to be changed, especially with the way certain films, particularly The Flash and The Batman, have gone through creative changes since the beginning of production on Justice League. And, as has been the case with many of these blockbusters, Zack Snyder, Geoff Johns, and the other folks working on this film will begin to see things that need another run past a camera while they are in the process of editing. Even if the reshoots end up being “significant”, as long as Warner Bros. doesn’t bring in another director (like Fox did with the 2015 Fantastic Four), we should be fine.
