Ben Affleck talks working with two directors on Justice League; Addresses reshoots

12 August 2017

The Batman star went on to reveal that he feels Justice League is "an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes".

However, although Whedon is reworking the film's plot, he may not get credit for overseeing "Justice League" ever since director Zack Snyder backed out, Variety confirmed. Now, with Joss Whedon taking the reins and WB's superhero film slate in flux, that no longer appears to be the case.

Darkseid also happens to be one of the most powerful beings in the DC universe, and a classic enemy of both Superman and the Justice League when it comes to the comic books. Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was frightful.

Here's hoping Whedon can make Justice League work.

From what we understand, the film was set to be more of an opening act for the aforementioned villain, but now, Steppenwolf's "credibility as the movie's big bad", has been strengthened. Justice League has had a very troubled production and on top of that, the DCEU hasn't had the best critical reception either. "We got really lucky that he stepped in", he told Entertainment Weekly.

As you'd expect with a film of this magnitude, there's been plenty of rumour and speculation surrounding said reshoots, with reports claiming they will greatly alter the film, while members of the cast such as Ray Fisher and Ben Affleck have played down the speculation by calling them standard.

"The original ending of the movie from what I understand was that he [Steppenwolf] was kind of playing the Silver Surfer role and Darkseid playing kind of the Galactus role, and the ending of the movie was a cliffhanger and Justice League 2 was going to be Justice League vs. Darkseid. I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we've done with Joss".

"I've never worked on a movie that didn't do reshoots", Affleck says. Affleck isn't saying that the finished product is good. They're hitting their stride.

The Justice League film is going to be a disaster, isn't it? In fact, Affleck said he thinks that things are finally starting to work and DC is getting things right as they move forward.

One way or another, we'll find out soon enough, as Justice League swoops into theaters on November 17th.
