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.

Hi Everyone! I've been doing some Super Ruminations because this month is the 79th anniversary of Superman in Action Comics and thought it fitting to pass on this little fact. Who knew eh?? In January 1933, Jerry Siegel wrote a short story titled "The Reign of the Superman", which was illustrated by his friend Joe Shuster and self-published in a science fiction magazine. It told the story of a bald villain with telepathic powers. Trying to create a character they could sell to newspaper syndicates,Siegel re-conceived the "superman" character as a powerful hero, sent to our world from a more advanced society. He and Shuster developed the idea into a comic strip, which they pitched unsuccessfully. National Publications was looking for a hit to accompany their success with Detective Comics, and did not have time to solicit new material. Because of the tight deadline, editor Vin Sullivan was forced to make it out of inventory and stockpile pages. Sullivan asked former coworker Sheldon Mayer if he could help. Mayer found the rejected Superman comic strips, and Sullivan told Siegel and Shuster that if they could paste them into 13 comic book pages, he would buy them. #SuperRuminations #Superman #ActionComics
