JUSTICE LEAGUE: Joss Whedon Reshot At Least 80 Script Pages For Zack Snyder's Movie At Warner Bros.' Behest

If you've been wondering just how extensive Joss Whedon's Justice League reshoots were, a new report sheds some long overdue light on the sheer amount of work Warner Bros. asked the filmmaker to do...

When it was revealed that Joss Whedon would write and direct Justice League's reshoots, Warner Bros. sold it as being a relatively normal number of additional scenes which Zack Snyder would have helmed under different circumstances. Well, The New York Times has now weighed in on the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement, dropping a shocking revelation in the process.

Apparently, a rough cut of Snyder's Justice League was shown to a small group of filmmakers which included Whedon, Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton), and Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) and it was shortly after that Warner Bros. asked The Avengers director to take charge of "a substantial round of reshoots that included almost 80 new script pages."

Apparently, this version of Justice League gave Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, and Diane Lane more to do, scrapped a number of subplots for characters like the Flash and Cyborg, and added more humour.

This all resulted in the divisive film that ended up in theaters, and it's clear the studio a) never wanted to release Snyder's version of the movie (possibly for good reason - it could have been terrible), and b) Whedon changed the film to an even greater extent than we first realised. Of course, even if the "Snyder Cut" isn't any good, fans understandably still want to see Snyder's original vision.

There's also a strong chance it would have been great, but given the dark and often complicated nature of the filmmaker's movies, it could be that Warner Bros. simply didn't think it would find an audience.
