When Zack Snyder’s Justice League was announced this week, it was unclear if the cast would be coming back for additional filming. The Hollywood Reporter said the cast would likely reunite to record additional dialog, but the question remained on if there would be additional scenes shot for things that weren’t done before Snyder left the movie originally. Well know we know.
According to The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez, there will be no additional filming for the Snyder Cut:
“There’s not going to be any reshoots of any kind with any actors,” Gonzalez said. “It’s just additional dialogue. Here’s something that hasn’t been reported yet: (Snyder) did want to shoot and he wanted to do additional photography but HBO Max said no, that’s not happening. We’ll give you money for post-production, for special effects, for scoring, and even ADR but no reshoots of any kind on this movie.”
This will also apparently be a “one and done” and won’t lead to additional movies. Meaning we won’t see the five-movie story that Snyder apparently had planned:
“This movie is basically one and done. This is to … close the loop, to finish the story. Maybe not the whole story, cause he did have like a three to five-picture plan. But this Snyder-verse, I’ll call it, will end with the Snyder Cut. Don’t expect any spinoffs for Batman or with Ben Affleck as Batman or any of that.”
This will obviously be disappointing to a lot of people, but hopefully cooler heads will prevail and it won’t spark a revolt against Warner Brothers who finally gave fans what they demanded for so long.
