Justice League is an important movie for DC. So the studio is taking every bit of precaution to make sure it proves to be a hit.

Recently a rumor was reported about a massive reshoot taking place for the movie.

Extensive re-shoots

Slash Film reported the whole update about the multiple re-shoots that have taken place for Justice League. According to the outlet, till the time the movie’s release date approaches, it will have essentially been remade at least twice because of all the re-shoots.

Elaborating further, the outlet stated that ever since the movie’s first principal photography took place, the studio has been adding re-shoots and on the spot re-writes for the movie.

The aforementioned source also stated that it is Ben Affleck who is responsible for all the spot re-writes that have taken place. Allegedly, he was the one who ordered them.

There are also reports that more re-shoots are coming soon. It should be noted that some re-shoots have already taken place and it resulted in stars like Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa being called back to film.

Reality behind re-shoots

Screen Rant, however, reported a contradicting update. According to the outlet, the studio has addressed these re-shoots rumors and according to them, it is not that exaggerated as many are thinking it to be.

On the other hand, the studio confirmed that some minimal pickup shoots would take place this summer. Such shoots are rumored to include additional photography that has been planned.

The outlet also stated that pickup shoots are normal when it comes to a major movie like Justice League. 

Re-shoots in other movies

Having re-shoots on movies like Justice League is normal because sometimes it helps them make the movie great.

There are other movies as well that underwent re-shoots. However re-shoots did not help these movies much. Movies like Suicide Squad and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story failed to live up to fans’ expectations because these re-shoots reduced the hype surrounding them and even enabled others to point out flaws in them.

Importance of Justice League

Justice League will be an important movie for DC universe. The movie would be a stepping-stone for all the heroes’ individual stories. Since a lot of solo movies have been planned after the ensemble, there is a lot riding on it.

The studio as well must be thinking the same, which is why they might want to make sure that the movie’s final output is without any errors and is exactly what they want it to be.


Justice League will be the first time major DC heroes will be assembling together to save the world. They will be going up against Steppenwolf, General of the Army of Apokolips and Darkseid’s uncle.

Steppenwolf’s invasion of Earth will be for the three motherboxes that are on Earth. These three motherboxes are actually supercomputers that can connect the user to God.

As hinted in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman and Wonder Woman will be joining hands to form the team and hoping to save the world. The team will consist of members like Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg.

The movie will also see Henry Cavill return as Superman after his death in the previous movie.

Release date

Justice League will release this year on Nov. 17.
