Zack Snyder will film Justice League Snyder Cut reshoots next month, and they will include the return of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and more.
Zack Snyder is set to film Justice League Snyder Cut reshoots, which will bring back Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and more stars for new scenes. The journey to get the Justice League Snyder Cut released has been one of the biggest stories in Hollywood over the last three years. The interest in seeing what Snyder intended the movie to be was finally recognized earlier this year when the director - who left Justice League in 2017 after the death of his daughter - confirmed the Snyder Cut will be finished and released on HBO Max.
Upon the announcement of the Snyder Cut coming to WarnerMedia's new streaming service in 2021, one of the biggest questions was if Snyder would get to film more scenes. Justice League went through extensive reshoots directed by Joss Whedon to change Snyder's vision, and he's let it be known that there were scenes he still wanted to film. It was stated at the start that Snyder likely would not get the chance to film more scenes to complete Justice League, but that has now changed in a big way.
Snyder is planning to shoot new scenes for Justice League starting next month to bring back some of the film's biggest stars. It is expected that Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Ray Fisher will return - as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg, respectively - to complete extra work for the HBO Max limited series. The additional filming will reportedly take place over a week or so.
The return of some of Justice League's biggest stars for more filming is noteworthy on several levels. Ben Affleck had walked away from playing Batman, but now he'll return to the role briefly before playing the Dark Knight again in The Flash.
