UPDATE: TheWrap got a denial from an unnamed Warner Bros. insider, who said, "There has been no additional photography to date on 'Justice League,' we have planned and will shoot additional pickups early summer. Additional photography has always been planned like most pictures in general but certainly for a tentpole of 'Justice League's' size and scope."
It's time to duck and cover as more "reshoots" talk gets film fans riled up on the offense and defense of a movie they won't be able to see for many months.
DC and Warner Bros. will release director Zack Snyder's "Justice League" on November 17, uniting Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash. Splash Report recently posted rumors that the movie isn't just undergoing normal run-of-the-mill reshoots, it's being completely remade after multiple "significant" reshoots.
Here's a portion of their report:
"Speaking on a condition of anonymity, [our source] said that in the 17 months between the start of principal photography and the final cut arriving in theaters in November that the film will have essentially been 'remade...twice.'
They refused to offer any further details, but they said that Warner Bros. is really putting everything it has into overhauling the movie. Apparently, they didn't like what they were seeing and so the film has had a lot of work put into trying to make it better while on its way towards its November 2017 release."
Splash Report added that this source is the same person that told them how extensive the reshoots for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" would be, and the source is "so intimately connected to the Justice League production that they told us about Ben Affleck's visit to rehab weeks before the star publicly acknowledged his personal struggles."
They emphasized that this does not necessarily mean "doom or gloom" for another DC tentpole. However, they also updated their original report with this note about still more changes:
Shortly we after we published the original report on the extensive Justice League reshoots, our source contacted us to offer further clarification:
"There are more reshoots COMING SOON. There have been a bunch but they're going to do MORE."
These are just rumors, but even if there's some truth to them ... so what? "Justice League" won't be out until November, so is it really a bad thing to think they will be working hard in the months ahead to make it as good as possible?
The rumors have been spreading to different sites across the web, with fans reacting in predictable fashion -- some saying it'll be "Batman v Superman" and "Suicide Squad" all over again, and others saying it's just more bias against DC (as the media continues to worship Marvel) when they're just doing what most major films do.
Meanwhile, "Wonder Woman" is next on the DCEU lineup, with her solo film arriving in theaters June 2.
