RUMOR: JUSTICE LEAGUE Reshoots Said To Be Substantial
A new rumor contends that the additional scenes Joss Whedon is filming for Justice League will substantially alter the Warner Bros. film from its current rendition. Henry Cavill is already on set.
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 Joe. He's apparently been "ruminating" about the 79th Anniversary of Superman in Action Comics.
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.
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
