Ben Affleck has been sharing details about the unorthodox two director situation on Justice League and the recent reshoots.
When Zac Snyder departed the film after a family bereavement, Joss Whedon promptly stepped into the fray to finish the film which included reshoots that apparently involved making Cyborg’s (Ray Fisher) character a little lighter in tone.
However, as Affleck has revealed, it seems that due to the late nature of Whedon’s arrival, the film will contain hallmarks of both director’s work.
“[Justice League is] an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes," Affleck told Entertainment Weekly. "I’ve never had that experience before making a movie. I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we’ve done with Joss.”
Affleck’s comments seem to confirm that Whedon will be lightening the tone which has been the general direction the DCEU has been heading since the negative response to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the stellar box office performance of Wonder Woman.
There are still uncertainties over whether or not both Whedon and Snyder will get directing credit for Justice League or whether each of their individual styles will work together.
Justice League is due to arrive in cinemas on Nov 17, 2017.
