New reports continue to emerge about the 2021 reboot of The DC Extended Universe movie which divided fans and ended Zac Snyder’s vision for the entire franchise. Now that the director is back at the helm with the backing of HBO Max. Various actors are also returning for new and extended scenes, although one of the Justice League’s biggest stars has said he will not be involved.
The latest news in The Hollywood Reporter said: “Jared Leto, who played classic DC villain The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad, has joined the additional photography shooting for the Snyder Cut…
“Shooting is currently underway with Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard among those involved on top of Leto.
“It is unclear which other actors are involved.”
What is intriguing about the latest news is that Leto’s archvillain did not appear at all in the cinema release of the Justice League.
Fans frustrated that they never saw the full integration of the Suicide Squad and Justice League worlds are in for a treat next year.
One star, however, has confirmed he is not taking part in the new shoots.
Fans have been campaigning for years for a release of the Snyder Cut when it was just rumoured and unconfirmed.
The cinematic release was slammed by many, not least for the terrible CGI required to cover Henry Cavill’s moustache, which he had grown for Mission Impossible Fallout.
Sadly it seems that will not be rectified, since the British star recently said he isn’t directly involved with the new reshoots.
Cavill told GQ: “They are doing their own thing out there, putting the movie together from the footage they shot. I’ve not been in comms with them about it.”
