Justice League Footage Was Added By Whedon:
Ray Fisher has been going on and on against Joss Whedon, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, and other Warner Bros. execs that were involved during the Justice League reshoots. Since summer, a lot of details have come out about what happened behind the scenes, but we haven’t really got a lot of new information upon the footage that was actually reshot. That’s probably because Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been green lit, and people want to keep its story a secret. But, Ray Fisher has revealed one major clue which tells us how much his character actually suffered after the change of directors happened. He recently spoke to Hasan Mohammed of the Geek House Show. Here, watch his interview if you haven’t.
As you may have seen in the video, Hasan specifically asked about the difference between the Snyder Cut and the theatrical cut of Justice League. He wanted to know that how much of footage have we actually seen from Zack’s movie, and here’s what Ray Fisher replied:
“Less than an hour, for sure. I think Fabian Wagner, our director of photography on Zack’s verison, he said maybe about ten percent of that was Zack’s footage and I’m inclined to agree with him. Because as we were shooting certain things, some things were similar like with the reshoots as what we did for the original. It’s hard to tell with certain shots of other people for scenes that I wasn’t there for, but what I can tell you from my character and from what you saw in the theatrical version that every single scene, with the exception of the Gotham City police rooftop scene with Commissioner Gordon and Batman and Flash; every single scene that I’m in was reshot. I reshot almost the entire film on my end.”
“As far as other people’s stuff like where I wasn’t there, I can’t really tell you. So, all in all, I would maybe say twenty or so minutes of that was maybe Zack’s footage, and some of it may have been taken even out of context with respect to how it was portrayed. So, the fact that we’re getting a four-hour cut of the movie, a four-hour version of this, this is going to be massive. I said it years ago, I think I was at a convention, and I said Zack shot enough to make two movies…and behold. It’s a four-hour movie.”
The fact that Joss Whedon shot an entirely new movie really baffles my brain. As Ray Fisher said, some scenes that we might see in the Snyder Cut could look similar to what Whedon added in Justice League, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be different. Zack Snyder’s Justice League will really be an entirely new film. So, those who have been saying that the Snyder Cut will mostly be an extension of what we saw in the theatres are wrong. There’s more than 3 hours of stuff that we haven’t seen at all. Avengers: Endgame was 3 hours long. So, the new stuff will be even more than that, and you have to believe that more than 80% of Justice League will be unseen.
On top of that, Zack Snyder could even increase the percentage of originality because he is currently busy with some additional filming of his upcoming cut. So, that’s even more new footage which is being added to the film. Now, let’s just hope that this project turns out to be good and attracts a lot of subscribers towards HBO Max. We will only get Justice League 2 and 3 if the Snyder Cut performs well in monetary terms. So, everyone who is a fan of this film and is excited for it, make sure that you pay for it whenever you watch it.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League arrives next year. Hopefully, we will get another trailer on November 17, as that’s a really important date for Justice League. On that date, we might even find out about when the HBO Max project is due to release.
