According to a new report, the planned Justice League reshoots are currently underway in London, and they will be “significant”.
BOF says that the Justice League reshoots aren’t just standard “pick-ups”. The extra scenes that are being added in are so significant that filming is expected to take place in June, July, and could even go into August.
It’s nice that we have a timeline now, and don’t get too worried about the “significant” amount of work. Zack Snyder said himself that he hired Joss Whedon to write brand new scenes for Justice League. Whedon will also be directing these new scenes, after a family tragedy forced Snyder to leave the project. On a big superhero movie like this it’s not surprising that they’ll take a while to film.
Henry Cavill appears to already be on set in London. He posted a photo this morning of himself hanging out in his trailer in his Superman costume.

Hi Everyone! I've been doing some Super Ruminations because this month is the 79th anniversary of Superman in Action Comics and thought it fitting to pass on this little fact. Who knew eh?? In January 1933, Jerry Siegel wrote a short story titled "The Reign of the Superman", which was illustrated by his friend Joe Shuster and self-published in a science fiction magazine. It told the story of a bald villain with telepathic powers. Trying to create a character they could sell to newspaper syndicates,Siegel re-conceived the "superman" character as a powerful hero, sent to our world from a more advanced society. He and Shuster developed the idea into a comic strip, which they pitched unsuccessfully. National Publications was looking for a hit to accompany their success with Detective Comics, and did not have time to solicit new material. Because of the tight deadline, editor Vin Sullivan was forced to make it out of inventory and stockpile pages. Sullivan asked former coworker Sheldon Mayer if he could help. Mayer found the rejected Superman comic strips, and Sullivan told Siegel and Shuster that if they could paste them into 13 comic book pages, he would buy them. #SuperRuminations #Superman #ActionComics
