Not much has really been revealed about Justice League, aside from some footage shown at last month’s San Diego Comic Con.
The latest issue of Total Film magazine has a featured article on the Justice League movie with comments from Ben Affleck, Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa, in addition to offering where Justice League will start off from at the beginning of the film.
The article says Justice League is a direct sequel to Batman V Superman and begins with Henry Cavill’s Superman in the ground having sacrificed himself to Doomsday. Batman and Wonder Woman are around with the threat of Steppenwolf and the Parademons looming, so they team up with Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. It’s noted mention will be made of both Kryptonians and the Green Lantern Corps in the Justice League movie.
It’s also being reported that the film will indeed follow Zack Snyder’s original plan he left in place before he exited the movie:
“As of right now, despite the fact that there’s been some extended time and it’s like ‘ok, if this is still – why are they still doing shoots on this,’ there’s been a lot of downtime in between shooting because of people’s schedules – they have not been shooting this entire time. The amount of content that has been shot and is being shot is still pretty much what they expected and figured was going to be happening. They haven’t said ‘oh, we need to add additional – we need to do a whole bunch more,’ or anything like that at this point, so, the footage and the amount of footage in the film, as of right now, the majority of the footage that you’re going to see on the screen is still the footage that was previously shot during principal photography… I know I’ve seen people worried and say ‘why is it taking so long,’ it’s because this is post – this is reshooting and filming that requires people’s schedules to line up, getting things in order, so it has not been as easy as they expected it to be when this was all being planned months ago.”
The film hits theaters November 17th.
