RUMOR: 'Justice League' Reshoots May Have Changed Film's Ending

Then in the middle of reshoots, Justice League lost director Zack Snyder because of a family tragedy. Although Snyder was able to complete the initial filming on Justice League, it was Whedon who oversaw the reshoots.

"It's a little bit unorthodox". The Batman standalone picture has gone through a number of screenwriters and some director turnover; Suicide Squad; Batman v. Superman (I'm not pointing out anything in particular with those last two films; they themselves were problems). "Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was disgusting".

The two-director situation is unusual, but shouldn't have fans too anxious, Affleck said, diplomatically calling Justice League "an interesting product of two directors".

"(The film is) an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes", he adds.

This is of course what we hope, of course, even if it was a little hard to believe fully in this positive narrative of a Ben Affleck that, there is not so long ago, has been dispossessed of the power he had on the DCU to the point that we wonder very seriously if he wasn't going to slam the door of The Batman.

In a recent interview with IGN, Joe Morton, who plays Dr. Silas Stone in the movie, explained that "the film felt too dark" prior to the reshoots. The actor first played the Caped Crusader in Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which received mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, and after Joss signed on for the new film's reshoots, insiders suggested there were issues with the project.

"This is a really nice time to work in DC", he continues.

One way or another, we'll find out soon enough, as Justice League swoops into theaters on November 17th. In fact, Affleck said he thinks that things are finally starting to work and DC is getting things right as they move forward.
