Ben Affleck: 'Justice League' Is 'Interesting Product of Two Directors'

For the movie, the best person we could've possible found was Joss. Meanwhile, the new director of the film, Joss Whedon, has been working on reshoots for the upcoming superhero film.

He considers the Warner Bros. team-up movie to be "an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes". Justice League has had a very troubled production and on top of that, the DCEU hasn't had the best critical reception either. Between the different changes of tone, to stick to the formula Marvel, the numerous reshoots and the departure of Zack Snyder, Justice League looks already to be a film maudit and we really hope that this will not be the case. "We got really lucky that he stepped in", he told Entertainment Weekly. While the notion of a two-film Justice League story was jettisoned before filming began, it's unclear how much Chris Terrio's original script was altered by the time Snyder stepped behind the camera.

"From what I've heard is happening, Joss Whedon has been brought in to make it lighter, as has been reported", explained Peter Sciretta. "I've never worked on a movie that didn't do reshoots", Affleck said.

"I do believe Morata will be big for Chelsea ", He told Jake Humphrey on BT Sport when quizzed on the "signing of the summer". There's that many games on TV now you can watch and see and you kind of know what each player and each striker is like.

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.

As for the extent of the reshoots, Affleck downplayed their significance by pointing out that Argo and Gone Baby Gone both had days of reshoots, but the scale of this Justice League additional photography-not to mention Affleck's aforementioned comments-seems to suggest there's more than just nipping and tucking going on. Affleck also went on to say that despite the rocky start, the DCEU is finding its place and getting on track. We'll have to wait and see, but there certainly is a lot of conflicting information regarding Justice League.

November 17th is the release date of Justice League, a project following the Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice that will combine this summers hit, Wonder Woman, with Batman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg, and possibly a returning Superman.
