With the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League inching closer, we’re starting to see more promotion from Warner Bros. and new details are finally being revealed. A new trailer for the film is expected to land online later this week, as will Empire Magazine’s latest issue, which closely examines the next instalment of the DC Extended Universe.
While visiting the set, Empire was given the opportunity to interview the cast, who each discussed what it was like to learn that director Zack Snyder would be stepping away from Justice League and Joss Whedon (The Avengers) would finish the project.
“I didn’t sense that we were moving towards something that felt like The Avengers,” said Ben Affleck. “Joss is more than just an Avengers director. He’s a good storyteller, full stop. In mid-stream, Joss got on and part of what interested him was the puzzle aspect of it, fitting in pieces that weren’t there yet. He put the rest of the pieces in and gave it his own imprimatur. Joss came in and walked a very fine line between Zack’s sensibility, tone, and direction. We found a really fun and inspiring synthesis of their two forms of storytelling. I was so glad everyone showed up to work for Zack.”
The rest of the cast then went on to discuss how they reacted to the news, with Gal Gadot stating that Whedon only spent a few weeks on reshoots and Justice League is still Zack Snyder’s movie. See what the Wonder Woman actress said below:
“This is Zack Snyder’s movie. Joss only did a few weeks of reshoots. He was Zack’s guy and knew exactly what he wanted to get.”
Jason Momoa added,:
“I [frick]ing love Zack, man. I’d do anything for him.”
Ezra Miller, who portrays The Flash then went on to shed a light on the situation:
“It’s a heroic act at its route. He called each and every one of us and took the time to explain something that defies, in many ways, explanation. He told us exactly how it was going to go down, which was true to course. He fascinates and amazes and staggers me. Zack Snyder, ultimate fricking legend. Forever.”
Justice League lands in theatres on November 17, 2017!
