Justice League’s Wonder Woman star, Gal Gadot, dons Batman's cowl in newly unveiled photo from the Justice League movie set. The actress looks to be having fun in the photo, wearing Ben Affleck's headpiece which is clearly too large for her. The photo surfaces after Zack Snyder’s Justice League was announced for HBO Max, breeding a fresh sense of excitement about the movie. There's still work to be done on Snyder's version of the film before it debuts on HBO Max in 2021, but this is the effort that the Release the Snyder Cut crowd have been asking for. The stars of the original film are said to be eager to help out with the project, but reports suggests that heavy reshoots fans are unlikely to take place.
Umberto Gonzalez said on TheWrap-Up podcast, “There’s not going to be any reshoots of any kind with any actors. 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 movie is basically one and done,” he added. “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.”
Time will tell how the reshoots take shape, Los Angeles County just cleared studios to begin production this month. However, things with the coronavirus pandemic will have to settle before anything concrete is announced. Twitter users were already thinking this could be a way to jumpstart Snyder’s universe plans all over again. In the end, the filmmaker is just grateful to give the fans what they’ve been asking for.
“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality,” Snyder said during the announcement.
