Note: For simplicitys sake, whenever the term reshoots is used, unless otherwise stated, assume that its a catchall term that includes pick-ups, additional photography, and the standard reshooting of scenes.In weeks past, there have been some rumors regarding the state of the DC Extended Universe namely, the status of their upcoming team-up film, Justice League. Extensive reshoots and additionally photography have, perhaps wrongly, been correlated with bad movies, and while reshoots have been a standard practice for films in the past decade or so, it still seems to give audiences some concern. Now, a report from Batman-On-Film seems to back up the rumors of extensive additional photography. According to the outlet, said photography has commenced in London with Joss Whedon at the helm. Their source has stated that these reshoots will be significant, though we can likely argue back and forth on what that really means. They also stated that these reshoots will not be your standard pick-ups, and will extend through July, and perhaps even August. RELATED: Aquaman To Take Place After Justice LeagueOf course, reshoots is one of those buzzwords that we hate to hear in reference to our most anticipated movies, but its not all bad news. Their source is rather optimistic about the additional couple months of shooting, and seem to think that itll result in an incredibly strong flick. This does bring into question just how much of the movie Whedon will be changing along the way. Before Zack Snyder stepped down from his director position to deal with a family tragedy, he had hired Whedon to pen additional scenes for the additional scenes, and with him now in the directors chair, its hard to shake that feeling that Whedons fingerprint will be ever-present.When Snyders departure was announced, Warner Bros. President Toby Emmerich stated that:The directing is minimal and it has to adhere to the style and tone and the template that Zack set. Were not introducing any new characters. Its the same characters in some new scenes. Hes handing the baton to Joss, but the course has really been set by Zack. I still believe that despite this tragedy, well still end up with a great movie.Were not sure if things have changed, or if this was the plan all along, but I do think its important to continually bring up the fact that Whedon comes from the land of TV. In short, he knows how to stick to an established tone. So while it may seem like a red flag that the reshoots are extensive, its not unreasonable to believe that Whedons fingerprint will be minimal, and that his direction will be in keeping with Snyders vision, so long as its in service of making a better film.What do you think of this latest report? Does this concern you at all, or do you think thisll all result in a much better film?

Affleck can’t act to save his life. Every line in every movie sounds exactly the same....wooden.
I need you like Ben Affleck needs acting school
He was terrible in that film
I need you like Cuba Gooding needed a bigger part
He's way better than Ben Affleck
And now all I can think about is your smile
and that ______ movie too
Pearl Harbor sucked and I miss you
Suicide Squad was a mess except for the Joker/Harley Quinn scenes.
> If they know whats good for them, every extra shot will be of Wonder Woman.
Hillary is available if the original actress is unavailable for the reshoots. She didn’t get the job offer she was expecting last November and is looking for work (to add to her financial frustrations, the $100ks speaking fees for her husband have dropped off “unexpectedly” and foundation donations have dried up).
budget was way too high for Suicide Squad. Why Will Smith made that dog with fleas instead of Independence Day 2 I will never know...I guess it wasn’t ‘edgy emough’ for lesbo Jada
I really wanted to like suicide squad, but the writing was terrible. The huge jumps early on where suddenly a major US city is being destroyed ruined things early on. The ending was pretty bad too.
Joss Whedon: I Want a Rhino to F*ck Paul Ryan to Death
You mean Joss is now trying to solicit Trump supporters to come and give him money to watch his film???
Affleck was good in The Accountant.
Putting Snyder at the helm of the DCU was a horrible decision. He is a crap director.
300 may be visually appealing, but overemphasizes the boobs compared to the book. He ruined Watchmen by turning Rohrschach into something he wasn’t. Changing one line crapped on the character (along with the flashback scene having him directly kill the pedo). When he grabs the thumbs of the prisoner, he says “my perspective”, not “my pleasure”. He was not an amoral psychopath.
He delivers his lines with the same tone every time.
Yeah but he was the coolest character in the movie
When did Whedon take over. How much shooting was already in the can?
He’s so much better in the novel though. ;-)
