JUSTICE LEAGUE Reshoots To Lighten Up SNYDER's 'Too Dark' Cut, Says Actor

And featuring Darkseid - arguably the most powerful villain in the DC Universe - so early in the DCEU's run always felt too soon. Zack Snyder helmed the project until leaving in May following a family tragedy, at which point Warner Bros. brought in Avengers director Joss Whedon to steer the production through reshoots. Joss Whedon is capable of delivering some powerful character work, but he's not exactly Jordan Peele when it comes to exploring racial allegories in film. Snyder and Whedon have very different aesthetics, so there is some concern about how the scenes from different directors will fit in together.

On the changes in the reshoots: "Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone". "Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was disgusting". Apparently, Joss Whedon is reshooting the ending to make it feel more like a complete movie and less like a cliffhanger for Justice League 2. "We got really lucky that he stepped in". "[It's] an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes", he said. I've never had that experience before making a movie. Affleck said this is not something he has ever experienced before, but he said that he loved working with Snyder and loved the work that they did with Whedon as well. Affleck also went on to say that despite the rocky start, the DCEU is finding its place and getting on track. He likes what each director produced, but will they work as one, single film? They're hitting their stride.
