Zack Snyder’s Son Says ‘Justice League’ Is “Not What It Could Have Been,” Stuntman Wants Director’s Cut

Joss Whedon‘s extensive reshoots on “Justice League” no doubt clashed with Zack Snyder‘s original vision. Among the changes, Jesse Eisenberg‘s return as Lex Luthor was reportedly axed, and Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman is said to have received more scenes and screentime. It’s not just the characters, the overall mood was rumored to get a lighter makeover with Whedon deviating away from Snyder’s darker palettes for a more colorful tone.

Justice League on target to lose holiday weekend to Coco

Coco is on track to finish well ahead of Justice League at the North American box office this holiday weekend.

Justice League didn’t have the coming out party it was hoping for last weekend, accumulating the lowest domestic opening of any Dceu film so far.

It also looks as if the superhero flick will come in second place for the holiday weekend, with Pixar’s Coco projected to bring in around $70 million at 3,958 North American locations in its first five days, easily beating out Justice League which is on track for around $60 million from 4,051 screens.

Coco has already proved a big hit in Mexico, bringing in $48 million – which is the biggest opening of all time in that particular market.

It is estimated that Coco’s budget is around $175 – $200 million.

So far Justice League has brought in $122 million at the domestic box office.

Warner Bros. could lose up to $100 million on Justice League

Having debuted to the lowest domestic opening weekend of any DC Extended Universe movie to date with $96 million, Forbes is reporting that Warner Bros. is looking at an overall loss of between $50 million and $100 million on its DC superhero team-up Justice League.

The Zack Snyder-directed DC ensemble has grossed $307 million worldwide so far, but is expected to lose out on top spot this coming Thanksgiving weekend to Disney-Pixar’s Coco, and is looking at a final gross of around $635 million.

Not only would this be the lowest haul for a Dceu movie ( a position currently occupied by Man of Steel on $668 million), but it would also leave Warner Bros. deep in the red. Given its $300 million production budget, plus marketing costs, Justice League was looking at a haul of around $700 million to $750 million in order to break even.

What this means for the future of the Dceu remains to be seen.

Deathstroke Goes Unmasked in New Justice League Photo

  • MovieWeb
A new image of Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke has surfaced and it features the actor without his infamous mask. Spoilers Ahead. Slade Wilson is one of DC's most dangerous characters and his involvement in the Dceu has been teased for over a year now. He made a cameo in the incredibly divisive Justice League, where the immensely corny "league of our own" comment comes from, lifted from the female baseball movie A League of Their Own. So much for the whole dangerous thing for Deathstroke and Lex Luthor.

The new behind-the-scenes photo features Joe Manganiello on set with 2 of Lex Luthor's bodyguards played by Katia Elizarova and Gem Refoufi. Though the picture doesn't show off the eyepatch, it's still a great image of Slade Wilson, aka, Deathstroke hanging out on set. Joe Manganiello is getting his own Deathstroke movie as well, and the Justice League post-credit scene possibly teased the

Justice League failure to signal the end for Batfleck?

Forbes have written a thorough insight into the box-office fallout of Justice League. It’s in no way an attack on the Dceu, and finds shards of hope within the darkness gathering around that cinematic universe. However, the most interesting snippet focuses on the continuing saga of Ben Affleck’s future as The Dark Knight. The article states:

Ben Affleck was frankly on his way out the door anyway, and Batman will probably get a soft or hard reboot now — I’ve resisted speaking too much about this publicly, but behind the scenes most sources have consistently stated he and Warner were just waiting until after Justice League to make an announcement, so the box office situation will probably expedite that process for them (which, I would guess, will actually be a relief for Affleck and Warner, since I imagine there’s been some stress and frustration for them in

Joss Whedon is still on board as director for Batgirl, despite recent rumours

Despite recent rumors that director Joss Whedon was no longer involved in the upcoming Batgirl film, the director may still be on board after all. EW claims to have several sources confirming that Whedon is, in fact, still attached to the film. The report claims that Joss Whedon is actively writing the script, and that there have been no talks whatsoever about the director leaving, or being fired from the project.

The initial rumors of his removal popped up right around the time that Justice League hit theaters. The film has been more-or-less panned critically, and has struggled at the box office with the lowest domestic opening of any Dceu movie. Now, given that Whedon put the finishing touches on the film, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to think that Warner Bros. were less than pleased with the director, and decided to end their working relationship. Also, it’s important

That awesome Batman opening to Justice League originally had a more comedic tone, according to actor Holt McCallany

Justice League has polarized fans, and isn’t exactly leaping-tall-buildings-in-a-single-bound at the box-office. However, one thing that everyone seems to agree on: the opening was awesome. Gotham City felt alive in a way that hasn’t been captured since Tim Burton’s Batman. The colors, dialogue, fight choreography… it simply felt right. Another pleasant surprise was (the Excellent) Mindhunter’s Holt McCallany being the subject of Batman’s rooftop beating. According to McCallany, that opening – which was written and directed – was originally very comedic. Speaking to Men’s Fitness, the actor reveals that Warner Bros. was not too keen on opening with a comedic scene:

“I love Joss Whedon. My scene with Batman was originally conceived as a comedic scene. That’s how Joss wrote it, and that’s how we shot it. I thought it came out great, but the studio felt it would be a mistake to open

Justice League cinematographer wants a Zack Snyder director’s cut

The cinematographer for Justice League, Fabian Wagner, has called for a Zack Snyder cut of the film.

There are a fair few people, after seeing Justice League, which would like to see what a full-blown Zack Snyder cut of the film would have looked like – Snyder had to step away from the production after a family tragedy, leaving Joss Whedon to take his place.

Wagner was the director of photography when Snyder was in the director’s chair but couldn’t return for Whedon’s reshoots due to scheduling difficulties. Second unit photographer Jean-Philippe Gossart ended up replacing him.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wagner said that he enjoys the time Snyder takes to tell his stories; speaking with regards to Justice League’s fairly short running time:

“This one was even shorter than I expected, so there are scenes that aren’t in there. I really hope we get

Jason Momoa defends Justice League, says it could have been two movies

Jason Momoa, one of the stars of Justice League, has defended the film from critics and stated that it could have been two movies.

Justice League is now playing on screens around the world, suffering a critical pounding and a disappointing opening weekend at the box office. The team-up blockbuster has the lowest opening for a Dceu film so far.

One of the film’s stars, Jason Momoa (who plays Aquaman), has defended the film – much like you might expect.

In an interview with EW, the actor said that he isn’t reading the negative feedback the film has received:

“I try to stay the fuck away from what people say,” Momoa said. “Some of my friends said, ‘Justice League isn’t doing well’ and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn’t want to look it up. I don’t want to look up the bad and the negativity.

Henry Cavill keen to “show Superman in his full colors”, contracted for one more DC movie

In the build up to the release of Justice League, Henry Cavill revealed that he felt the resurrected Man of Steel in Justice League is “the first time we see the true Superman” in the Dceu, and now the actor has been talking to The Los Angeles Times about how this sets the stage to tell a definitive Superman tale going forward.

“He’s definitely different from previous incarnations,” said Cavill with regards to Justice League’s Superman. “I feel like this is the natural progression from the end of Man of Steel into what he is now. This is a rebirth of the character, to coin the D.C. comics franchise right now: It’s a refresh. This movie highlights the qualities of Superman that exist in the comic books. That’s something I’ve always been very keen to highlight in the character. This rebirth provided the opportunity

Ray Fisher discusses a deleted Cyborg scene from Justice League

If you kept up to date with all of the marketing material for Justice League and have now seen the final film, chances are you’ll have noticed that a couple of Victor Stone’s pre-Cyborg scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

In addition to the above shot, the trailers also featured a glimpse of Victor playing football, and it seems those weren’t the only two scenes of the character pre-accident that were shot for the movie.

“There were some things that you’ll probably end up seeing later on, that didn’t make it into this version of the film,” actor Ray Fisher tells Gamespot. “There’s a scene with Victor Stone, when he still was Victor Stone, and his mother, that was really special to shoot.”

Fisher also spoke about the changes to the film as a result of the reshoots, stating that: “You’re shooting and testing,

Is Justice League’s Steppenwolf the worst superhero movie villain ever?

Anghus Houvouras on whether Justice League’s Steppenwolf is the worst superhero movie villain ever…

Yes. Totally. I don’t even think this is debatable. I’m curious to see if anyone steps up to defend the opposing position. Marvel and DC villains have been notoriously terrible. You can name all the good/interesting villains on one hand.

Loki (Thor movies, Avengers) – A no-brainer. Tom Hiddleston has been a gift to the McU.

Zod (Man of Steel) – Not everyone liked Michael Shannon’s mega-intense portrayal of Zod, but I found him interesting.

Zemo (Captain America: Civil War) – Another polarizing choice. For me, the idea of a man seeking revenge for the collateral damage cause by super heroes is interesting and Daniel Bruhl’s quiet, cerebral interpretation of the character was well done.

It’s kind of frightening that there have been over 20 Marvel and Dceu movies and after three villains

Fans petitioning Warner Bros. to release Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League

While director Zack Snyder certainly has his critics, he’s also got a very devoted fan base – one which has launched a new campaign for Warner Bros. to release his original version of Justice League with a petition on Change.org which has so far attracted almost 60,000 signatures.

“We the undersigned make this petition, because during the last few months, the film Justice League underwent a few changes in terms of composer and runtime,” reads the petition. “Zack Snyder, director of the film, screened Justice League to Warner Bros. executives earlier this year, they where happy with the film, but the director himself felt the film needed something more, he contacted Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, to write a few additional scenes with plans to shoot them over the summer, but an unfortunate tragedy in his family happened and he understandably had to step down,

Latest rumours on The Batman claim it will be a Justice League sequel with or without Ben Affleck

I’m struggling to think of a project which has had as much rumour and speculation surrounding it as Warner Bros. and DC Films’ planned Dark Knight solo movie The Batman.

For months now, it seems a day hasn’t gone by without some report claiming to drop “insider information” on the status of the film, and that stepped up a gear this past week when Ben Affleck revealed that he was yet to sign on for the movie, and looking to “segue out” of the role.

To bring you up to speed, a rumour emerged a few days ago claiming that Reeves has identified Jake Gyllenhaal as a replacement for Ben Affleck, and that he is considering two ideas for his trilogy – one which would serve as a prequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the other as a standalone series of films.

Well, we now have

Justice League suffers lowest opening weekend box office of the DC Extended Universe

Warner Bros.’ long-awaited DC team-up Justice League has suffered a rather tough time at the U.S box office in its opening weekend, with the film grossing $96 million across the Friday-to-Sunday period.

While it’s obviously ridiculous to call a $96 million opening a disaster (it is an astronomical number after all), the film – which brings together DC’s most iconic characters – had been tracking between $110 million and $120 million, and instead debuted to the lowest opening weekend of the DC Extended Universe to date, and the second lowest opening weekend of 2017 for a superhero movie.

For comparison within the Dceu, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opened to $166 million, followed by Suicide Squad on $133.7 million, Man of Steel on $116.6 million and Wonder Woman on $103.3 million. In terms of the year’s other superhero blockbusters, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 leads the way with $146.5 million, followed by Thor: Ragnarok on $122.7 million,
