Fans are eagerly awaiting November’s Justice League in large part due to Ben Affleck’s Batman.
There was some controversy with how the character was portrayed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but in a new interview with Us Magazine, Ben Affleck revealed the character definitely won’t be the same:
“In Batman v Superman, he was at the end of his rope. But in Justice League, he’s finding hope again. He has to open up and play well with others. He knows he needs them.”
It isn’t really that hard to see that that is what Zack Snyder was going for, though good luck explaining that to a fan boy that says things like “Zack Snyder ruined my childhood!” or whatever annoying argument they have.
Some fans seem to think that Joss Whedon being brought on to finish the film will “save” it, but the movie reportedly still follows Snyder’s vision:
“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.”
Justice League hits theaters November 17th.
