Justice League Cinematographer Fabian Wagner Teases Big Reveal
We’re sneaking up on the third anniversary of the theatrical release of Justice League, which means we can expect something to happen, right? Well, according to the film’s cinematographer, Fabian Wagner, we might actually get a pretty big bomb. The man teased as much by posting a photo on his Instagram account of Zack Snyder (who is currently hard at work filming new scenes of his cut of Justice League) holding a giant bomb. Check out the post below!
“Superexcited to see what bomb Zack is gonna drop on November 17,” Wagner wrote. “Thanks to all the fans for making it happen.”
Considering everything we know about Zack Snyder’s Justice League, how can the man not show anything on the theatrical cut’s third anniversary as a not-so-subtle bit of revenge? Will it be a new trailer? A new image? Or maybe one of those cool behind-the-scenes videos showing off the ongoing filming?
Or, will it finally be Zack himself revealing that HBO has officially let him direct Justice League 2? In this instance, any Justice League news is good news. Wagner also teased more deleted scenes heading our way, which you can also check out below!
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will reportedly cost around $70 million in order to properly finish the editing and visual effects of the director’s original vision, as well as the additional photography. The original post-production crew is also expected to return along with the cast members to record additional dialogue for the cut.
It was revealed at DC FanDome that the movie will release on HBO Max in 2021 by being broken up into four one-hour parts that will also be released as one four-hour film.
Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League, which features a screenplay from Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio, stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Released in November 2017, the film earned mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, praising the action and performances from Gadot and Miller while criticizing every other aspect of the film, namely the inconsistent tone that many fault Joss Whedon (The Avengers) for after taking over directorial duties from Snyder. With a large budget of $300 million and a break-even point of $750 million, the film is considered a box office bomb having grossed only $658 million.
