The Justice League Reshoot Controversy Is Overblown

262 Reads


Mashable

Reshoots for Justice League are ongoing and there are conflicting reports as to how extensive they are.

(THE WHOLE FILM IS BEING REMADE.  JOSS WHEDON WILL MAKE IT A QUIP-FEST.  DC IS RUINED)

Some fans are panicking that the reshoots are a red flag and that the entire film is being re-made.

Most reports seem to indicate that the reshoots, helmed by Joss Whedon, have taken 4 weeks and cost approximately $25 million.

Whedon's role has been to punch up some dialogue, improve character interactions, and to create new scenes that serve as connective tissue.

Forbes writer Mark Hughes denies that the film is being made new or that Whedon is replacing Snyder.

Hughes also revealed that the film's runtime would approach 3 hours.

Except no, 20 minutes of mostly new footage in a nearly 3 hr film is different from the implication they're reshooting most of a film.

Reshoots are not necessarily a portent of a bad film.  Justice League is a massive tentpole film that should support the DCEU for many years to come.

Warner Bros. is smart to protect their investment and make sure it launches a franchise as intended.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story underwent major reshoots and that film went on to widespread critical acclaim and commercial success.

The main reason the reshoots have taken so long is due to scheduling conflicts between the actors.  Ezra Miller is busy working on the Fantastic Beasts sequel and Henry Cavill is busy working on Mission Impossible 6.

Speaking of Cavill, there's been a mini controversy swirling about surrounding his mustache.

Cavill is bouncing back and forth between Justice League and Mission Impossible.  The problem however is that Cavill's character in Mission Impossible has a mustache and is being forbidden from shaving it by Paramount.

Director Chris McQuarrie tweeted this in response: 

In exactly one year you’ll understand: The only way to keep a fake ‘stache on Henry Cavill would be a liberal dose of staples. #MI6 07.27.18

Therefore, Warner Bros. has to film Cavill as is and digitally remove the mustache later.  I hope to god WB releases unedited footage of a mustachioed Superman.

Cavill took to Instagram to address the situation:

"Dear followers, it time to finally set the record straight in this moustache fiasco.  Pictured above is not a set in MI6 but is in fact the latest in a series of 

weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity known as 'Henry Cavill's Moustache.'  There has been no discussion 

over whether to shave or not to shave for the JL reshoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this 

despotic 'stache.  It is not a question of IF I should shave - it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our 

own doom raining down upon us."

He ended his post with the rather poignant hashtag: #MoustacheImpossible.
