Zack Snyder's Justice League Reshoots Won't Involve the Cast

As the cast of Justice League express their happiness over the announcement of Zack Snyder’s Justice League landing on HBO Max, word’s come in that none of them will be called back into the fray for the $20-30 million worth of work still needed to complete the project.

On this week’s episode of The Wrap’s “Wrap-Up” podcast, Wrap reporter guest Umberto Gonzalez mentioned how Warner Bros. is apparently drawing the line at more scenes being added featuring the stars of the film.

“There’s not going to be any reshoots of any kind with any actors,” Gonzalez stated. “It’s just additional dialogue. Here’s something that hasn’t been reported yet – [Zack Snyder] did want to shoot and he wanted to do additional photography but HBO Max said no, that’s not happening.”

“We’ll give you money for post-production,” Gonzalez added, “for special effects, for scoring, and even ADR but no reshoots of any kind on this movie.”

Naturally, renegotiating with, and assembling, that cast once more would be quite the expensive and logistical feat, so it makes sense why HBO Max would nix the idea. And if the film is still to have the Martian Manhunter scene Snyder’s said was in the original cut, then it could be done with CGI if needed.

Back at the end of 2019, Zack Snyder himself confirmed the “Snyder Cut” existed, further increasing curiosity by posting photos of Cavill’s Superman in a black suit that didn’t appear in the film.
