Justice League Reshoots Lightened Film's Tone, Actor Confirms

Batman Flash and Wonder Woman in Justice League

Affleck, who helmed the Best Picture-winning Argo, describes the resulting film as "an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes". Superman's tache issues; the sudden, legitimately sad departure of Zack Synder; reshoots galore - does Joss Whedon have any chance of salvaging the troubled superhero flick? While the notion of a two-film Justice League story was jettisoned before filming began, it's unclear how much Chris Terrio's original script was altered by the time Snyder stepped behind the camera.

Meanwhile, on /Film Daily, it's been claimed that Joss Whedon will be completely changing the ending of the movie; apparently, the film would have concluded with Darkseid arriving on Earth, setting the stage for Justice League 2.

This is of course what we hope, of course, even if it was a little hard to believe fully in this positive narrative of a Ben Affleck that, there is not so long ago, has been dispossessed of the power he had on the DCU to the point that we wonder very seriously if he wasn't going to slam the door of The Batman.

Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in the film, isn't anxious. "We got really lucky that he stepped in", he told Entertainment Weekly. Justice League has had a very troubled production and on top of that, the DCEU hasn't had the best critical reception either.

"From what I've heard is happening, Joss Whedon has been brought in to make it lighter, as has been reported", explained Peter Sciretta.

Based on what Ben Affleck had to say about the finished product for Justice League, it seems that the future is looking bright for the DCEU.

Justice League opens in theaters on November 17, 2017. In fact, Affleck said he thinks that things are finally starting to work and DC is getting things right as they move forward.

The initial synopsis of the film centers around Batman, who is said to be the one who will form the Justice League with the help of Wonder Woman. "They beckon, they are doing things correctly, and it starts to give really the impression that it's going to work".
