DC’s highly anticipated movie , Justice League is almost here. For the first time, DC’s famous group of superheroes will be shown on the big screen. While most of the movie has been directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Batman V Superman : Dawn Of Justice), some parts of the movie had to go through reshoots after Snyder stepped down from the director’s chair after a personal tragedy.
These reshoots have been directed by Avengers’ director Joss Whedon. While the fans are worried what changes Whedon has done to the original theme, the cast members have assured that the movie is still on the same track Snyder left. Ben Affleck has talked more about what Joss Whedon has brought to the movie. Speaking with SFX Magazine, here is what he said :
“Joss just brought to the movie what good directors bring, which is good taste. A sense of what’s gonna work in the story and what isn’t. An instinct for realism and for finding the humanity in the characters and the humanity in the conflict, then making it accessible and relevant. I think that’s one of the things he did so well with Avengers, frankly. He really defined the tone, and it felt like a lot of the movies after that sort of fell into that tone that he created. It was a very tricky dance where you have all these people who can do all these fantastic things that’s completely absurd on the face of it, and yet, a good storyteller like Joss brings us in, makes us identify with them, makes them seem real, and makes it interesting. A lot of guys know the comic books, a lot of people have that knowledge base. What Joss really has is talent.”
Affleck further went on to praise the director and explain how he actually works.
“I wish I had the gift that he has for identifying what’s the most compelling human drama in the context of superhero conflict. But he has a very sharp mind for it. He knows exactly what he wants, almost with a surgeon’s kind of precision. He focuses in, beat by beat, on how he’s telling the story, exactly where he’ll be editorially. What the tenor of delivery of a line should be like. He gives you comfort because you feel like he has a very clear idea of what he wants, what he expects and, most importantly, what he thinks will work.”
Another thing that the fans need to know is that Zack Snyder will be the only one to get the directorial credit. So what changes Whedon exactly did to Synder’s cut cannot be told at this point. Whatever it is, Ben Affleck has assured that fans have nothing to worry about.
Justice League releases on November 17, 2017.
