Henry Cavill Reports To Justice League Reshoots
Reshoots and pickups on Justice League start this week in England, and stars are already reporting in. While Jason Momoa and others might be involved in other projects before returning to set (such as Aquaman), one star has made his presence known. Henry Cavill posted a picture to Instagram on Tuesday morning from his trailer. While he’s enjoying a nice cup of coffee, he is also revealing he is back in his Superman costume. Superman’s role in Justice League has not been revealed as of yet, nor how he revives from the aftermath of Batman V Superman. Cavill is currently also filming the latest Mission Impossible film with Tom Cruise, but it seems that the reshoots will involve Superman in some way.
That is not the only reason Cavill is back in his Superman duds. As June is when Action Comics #1 was released in 1938 (though some debate if it was in April), Cavill wants to teach us some Superman facts.
“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.”
He also goes on to explain how Siegel and Shuster ultimately had the company that would become DC take a chance on Superman.
Trouble In Reshoot Paradise?
The reshoots for Justice League are being handled by Joss Whedon, taking over for Zack Snyder in the wake of the latter’s family tragedy. The reshoots are expected to take all summer and were planned in advance by both Whedon and Snyder. While Whedon was working with Snyder even before Snyder’s departure, people are wondering how his style will fit with the DC movies. These reshoots include new scenes written by Whedon. Even with these significant reshoots, Whedon and Snyder both aim to have the film to be released on time.
Justice League is expected to hit theaters on November 17th, 2017.
