Remember how a couple of weeks ago word had come out that the upcoming Justice League film was doing reshoots and everyone including us here at The Trusty Sidekick were basically like “it’s ok, these things happen all the time. No need to worry.” Well we wouldn’t say that there is need to worry but there has been word that these reshoots may have some real substance.
A new rumor states that Justice League will be filming in London from June thru August and that the additional scenes are “substantial.” However, it’s likely that these changes were already planned as Joss Whedon was hired to write them long before Zack Snyder tragically stepped away from the production.
Executive producer Charles Roven recently commented on the additonal scenes, implying that they were minimal in nature but would take a relatively significant amount of time to complete due to each actor’s busy schedule (i.e. Jason Momoa and Amber Heard in Australia shooting Aquaman, Gal Gadot doing press for Wonder Woman, Cavill busy with Mission Impossible, etc.).
A morning Instagram post from Henry Cavill appears to confirm that he’s already in London. His social media account shows that he’s in full Man of Steel attire while hanging out in his trailer and enjoying a nice cup of coffee
Justice League is currently slated to arrive in theaters on November 17. Regardless of whether there’s extensive new footage being shot or scheduling issues to work through, the time required to film these additional scenes could mean WB is forced to push the release date back. But I think we all can agree that if this gives us a better product in the end it is all worth it.
