JUSTICE LEAGUE May Not Be Changing As Much As You Think
Splashingtons, in the mood for a little Justice League news? Well, according to Mark Hughes’ (of the Superhero News podcast), the Justice League re-shoots are taking so long because of everyone’s schedules. He insists that the re-shoots aren’t totally going to change Zack Snyder‘s vision.
“As of right now, despite the fact that there’s been some extended time and it’s like ‘ok, if this is still – why are they still doing shoots on this,’ there’s been a lot of downtime in between shooting because of people’s schedules – they have not been shooting this entire time. The amount of content that has been shot and is being shot is still pretty much what they expected and figured was going to be happening. They haven’t said ‘oh, we need to add additional – we need to do a whole bunch more,’ or anything like that at this point, so, the footage and the amount of footage in the film, as of right now, the majority of the footage that you’re going to see on the screen is still the footage that was previously shot during principal photography… I know I’ve seen people worried and say ‘why is it taking so long,’ it’s because this is post – this is re-shooting and filming that requires people’s schedules to line up, getting things in order, so it has not been as easy as they expected it to be when this was all being planned months ago.”
That might sound like a bummer since most people were excited for the potential Snyder changes. Each time I’ve mentioned that Joss Whedon is directing the re-shoots, a friend jumps and clicks their heels together. They do that every time I mention it. Hughes goes on to say that the re-shoots are mostly new footage” and that they’re normal and used to “fill some stuff in” the movie.
“…it’s mostly new footage, the re-shoots – and some people insist the terminology doesn’t matter and that “re-shoots” is common, well no, the terminology does matter to people that make movies and know what these things are, and it matters if you’re saying something’s a “re-shoot” when it’s not a re-shoot – that matters, but to the extent that that’s just a technicality, the shoots and re-shoots combined that are happening and then the also pickups to fill some stuff in is not going to be the majority of the film and it’s not going to be some huge vast portion of the movie.”
Well, did this new information on the re-shoots let some of the wind out of your sails? Or, are you happy that Justice League doesn’t appear to be turning into a different movie?
