The DCEU’s Justice League is just 2 months away and RUMORS continue to swirl on what got cut, reshot, and beefed up after the $25 million dollar reshoots.
One thing that is very true is that Wonder Woman is a major focus of the movie, this was always the case and not a reactionary decision. Read on…
Cyborg and Aquaman get beefed up roles while CelebNMovies247.com has also learned that Batman will be more traditional this time around.
First let us tackle the inflated budget rumors via Variety. Why did it get so costly?
Apparently, the superheroes were all working on other projects. Ezra Miller is working on the Fantastic Beasts sequel, Henry Cavill is working on Mission Impossible 6, and Jason Momoa is in Australia working on Aquaman, it’s hard to get them all in front of the camera at the same time
Then, New posters focusing on two more franchises are Aquaman and Cyborg. The new live-action posters display both DC heroes posing and ready for action with their respective symbols placed behind them.
Are you excited to see Aquaman and Cyborg in action?
If yes, the, you’ll be happy to know that Cyborg got beefed up. Not only that, Ray Fisher has also signed a three movie deal, on which includes a solo movie slated for a 2020 release.
One of the main changes during the reshoots – Joss Whedon revealed during reshoots, saying nothing that he worked on actually changed the tone. However, he did say the tone of Cyborg’s character was altered during reshoots, which makes a lot of sense, as Zack Snyder had previously emphasized Cyborg’s role as the heart of Justice League – which means Cyborg needs to work for Justice League to work. Ironically, this claim is one that actually reinforces Snyders’ original vision for the movie, according to Whedon’s interview with IGN.
He revealed a lot of the changes besides the Wonder Woman additions, Cyborg had some major dialogue changes:
“Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone. I know that with Ray [Fisher], the young man who plays Victor, there were some adjustments that they made in terms of the tone of that character. I think what I heard was that there was a need from the studio to lighten up the film in a way, that the film felt too dark. I don’t know what that meant in terms of how it actually got translated in terms of the reshoots but that’s what I heard. That’s what I thought some of the reshoots were about.”
