Following a lengthy hiatus, during which time he and his wife Deborah Snyder grieved their daughter’s sudden, tragic death, Zack Snyder is now beginning to beat the drum for Warner’s Justice League movie, which is only three weeks out from its theatrical debut.
Production has wrapped, the final trailer has landed, and we recently caught wind of the film’s alleged running time (spoilers: it’s said to fall around the two-hour marker). That’s a far cry from those original rumors that claimed Justice League would stretch past three hours, making it one of the longest superhero movies in recent memory.
There’s also the small matter of Joss Whedon, who was tasked with ushering Justice League over the finish line soon after Snyder vacated the director’s chair. Word is the two-time Avengers filmmaker oversaw extensive reshoots – reshoots that purportedly carved out more room for Diana Prince following the meteoric success of Wonder Woman earlier in the year.
But when all is said and done, Warner’s long-awaited ensemble piece will be remembered as Zack Snyder’s movie, and the filmmaker recently took to Vero to share a new behind-the-scenes pic. It’s embedded below, along with three action shots designed to spotlight Gal Gadot’s Amazonian and Cyborg, who can be seen taking control of the remodeled Batmobile, much to the bemusement of Alfred.
All three are essentially screengrabs from Justice League‘s recent trailers, and you can thank Warner Bros. India (via RealFada on Twitter) for this latest info dump. But to say that there’s a lot riding on JL‘s burly shoulders would be a colossal understatement. Early reactions to Snyder’s tentpole have praised the film’s “epic” scope, but let’s just hope the final product is able to channel the success of Wonder Woman, rather than winding up in the same trash bin as Batman V Superman.
It’s been a long time coming, but Justice League will finally see a release on November 17th.
