The JUSTICE LEAGUE Reshoots Being Done with Joss Whedon Are Said to Be Extensive

Well, it looks like we may see Joss Whedon has his work cut out for him with Justice League. Before Zack Snyder stepped away from the project, Whedon was already helping write and plan out the reshoots that needed to be done. Well, now Whedon is directing those reshoots and apparently, there’s a lot of work that needs to be done.

According to Batman-On-Film, the reshoots that need to be done are extensive. They are so many things that need to be reshot that shooting will take place over the course of the summer. The report says:

“I have been told by a 100% vetted and more-than-reliable source that re-shoots on JUSTICE LEAGUE have commenced in London under the helm of Joss Whedon and that they will be ‘significant.’ So much so, that these reshoots are expected to take place through June and July, and maybe into August. They are NOT your ‘standard” pick-ups.'”

Some people see reshoots like this as a bad thing, others see it as a good thing. I just hope that the end result gives fans a great film! A film that’s at least just as good as how Wonder Woman turned out or better!

Whedon is one hell of a talented director and I think he’ll end up bringing some great elements to Justice League. I’m excited to see how the rest of the film in the DCEU turn out. All that matters to me is that they get the best cinematic treatment possible.

What are your thoughts about all this?

Joss Whedon Replaces Zack Snyder On ‘Justice League’ After Family Tragedy

Zack Snyder is stepping down from his directorial duties on “Justice League” in the wake of a family tragedy.

During an interview on the Warner Bros. lot where a rough cut of the film was screened, Snyder revealed that his 20-year-old daughter, Autumn Snyder, died by suicide in March. He is taking time off to take care of his family and deal with her death, while “Avengers” director Joss Whedon will help bring the film across the finish line.

Snyder had already completed the majority of filming on the highly anticipated DC superhero tentpole, which is still slated to be released on Nov. 17, but will hand the reins over to Whedon for shooting additional scenes and post-production.

“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it,” Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter in an emotional interview with his wife and “Justice League” producer Deborah Snyder.

Joss Whedon to Direct Batgirl Movie!

BREAKING: Joss Whedon to Direct Batgirl Movie!

Holy female empowerment, Batman! Variety is reporting that none other than geek legend Joss Whedon (Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) has signed to write, direct and produce a Batgirl movie for Warner Bros. and DC Films!

Whedon, of course, directed The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron for Marvel Studios, grossing nearly $3 billion dollars in the process. He also co-created/shepherded the ABC series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now he’s jumped over to the competition, as it’s confirmed that his Batgirl movie will be part of the ever-evolving DC Extended Universe that includes the upcoming Wonder Woman, Justice League, Aquaman and The Batman solo film, as well as another female-centric entry in David Ayer’s Gotham City Sirens.

No other producers are attached to the Batgirl movie, though Toby Emmerich, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns will oversee the project for the studio, which apparently only came into being within the last month.

Batgirl’s first comic appearance in 1967 was as Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner James Gordon, and she later became an ally of Batman and Robin in Gotham City. She was previously portrayed by Yvonne Craig in the campy ’60s Batman series, then by Alicia Silverstone (as Barbara Wilson, Alfred’s niece) in the equally-campy 1997 flop Batman & Robin. She was recently voiced by Rosario Dawson in The LEGO Batman Movie.

Whedon, who had previously written a treatment for his own Wonder Woman movie a decade ago, was last said to be working on a World War II horror movie, but he has stated previously that he would like to make a Batman film. Whether he will take a larger role overseeing the DCEU as he did during Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains to be seen, but for now that role belongs to Geoff Johns.

Joss Whedon Explains Why There’s No Loki In ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’

While Earth’s mightiest heroes are busy battling an evil android in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” there’s still plenty of attention paid to their first foe: Loki, the mischief maker played by Tom Hiddleston.The Asgardian villain’s scepter plays a huge role in the “Avengers” sequel, for instance, fueling much of the action we see once Ultron hits the scene. There’s even a sequence in which Thor sees terrible visions of the future, apocalyptic events occurring in Asgard. Continue reading

Promo Art Surfaces for Joss Whedon’s WONDER WOMAN

promo-art-surfaces-for-joss-whedons-wonder-woman

Back in 2005, Avengers director Joss Whedon wrote a Wonder Woman script for Warner Bros. Unfortunately his version of the film never saw the light of day. But today some rare promotional art for the film he was developing has surfaced, and the original art is currently up sale for sale on eBay for a good cause.

Money is being raised for Clydene Nee, who is suffering from kidney failure. “The money will go to help support her healthcare and living expenses. Clydene has worked in the comic book industry and is a long time and loved member of the art community.” She was also a San Diego Comic-Con volunteer who is instrumental in the continued existence of Artists’ Alley.

The art was created by Adam Hughes, and apparently prints of it were given away at Comic-Con back in 2005. When talking about his version of Wonder Woman, Whedon had this to say in a previous interview:

“She was very powerful and very naïve about people. The fact that she was a goddess was how I eventually found my in to her humanity and vulnerability, because she would look at us and the way we kill each other and the way we let people starve and the way the world is run and she’d be like, ‘None of this makes sense to me’.”

It’s a shame this movie never happened, but one day it will, and it probably won’t be as good as what Whedon could have given us.
