Henry Cavill Posts Instragram Updates While Doing “Justice League” Reshoots

Earlier today Henry Cavill posted two updates on his personal Instagram account. Apparently, from the look of the photo and reports from Batman-on-Film.com, Henry is currently in London participating in “significant” reshoots for the “Justice League” movie.

Apparently these reshoots (which were confirmed by producer Charles Roven last week) have commenced in London under the helm of Joss Whedon. We’re told that they’re not your standard pick-ups, which most films go through at this point in the process, so much so that filming is expected to take place through June, July and possibly into August. Whatever they are, Superman appears to be part of what’s being filmed, as deduced from Henry’s first Instagram post today, showing him (well his feet) as he relaxes in his trailer…

Hi Everyone! I’ve been doing some Super Ruminations because this month is the 79th anniversary of Superman in Action Comics and thought it fitting to pass on this little fact. Who knew eh?? In January 1933, Jerry Siegel wrote a short story titled “The Reign of the Superman”, which was illustrated by his friend Joe Shuster and self-published in a science fiction magazine. It told the story of a bald villain with telepathic powers. Trying to create a character they could sell to newspaper syndicates,Siegel re-conceived the “superman” character as a powerful hero, sent to our world from a more advanced society. He and Shuster developed the idea into a comic strip, which they pitched unsuccessfully. National Publications was looking for a hit to accompany their success with Detective Comics, and did not have time to solicit new material. Because of the tight deadline, editor Vin Sullivan was forced to make it out of inventory and stockpile pages. Sullivan asked former coworker Sheldon Mayer if he could help. Mayer found the rejected Superman comic strips, and Sullivan told Siegel and Shuster that if they could paste them into 13 comic book pages, he would buy them. #SuperRuminations #Superman #ActionComics

The second update from Henry was to congratulate Gal Gadot, Patty Jenkins and the cast and crew of “Wonder Woman” on the film’s success.

“Congratulations to my DC family members Gal, Patty, Chris and the whole Wonder Woman team for an incredibly successful weekend!! You guys nailed it.”

I absolutely love the fact that he loves being Superman.

And does it with the Brit wit sense of humor.

Good God, did I HAVE to preface this with “It’s a joke”?

You shouldn’t have to, but here we are. I think there are enough people on either side of the Cavill-as-Superman debate that you’d probably get downvoted no matter what you said!

This can only be a good thing.

Well hopefully Joss gives us some dialog, exposition and character scenes the past two movies have been lacking.
Like how he fought with Disney to keep the farmhouse scene in Avengers AoU. No matter how you feel about the movie, that scene is something fans and critics have universally praised as it gives us insight into how the characters feel and makes them more down to Earth.
If there are 3 months of “reshoots” I can only expect it’s more than just simple “reshoots” and some scenes are being added/changed to give us more character out of these characters.

I really need that mug to say “World’s Greatest Man.”

Maybe I’m reading into this too much. BUT….significant re-shoots at this point IMO seems major. One can only wonder to what extent they’re changing things around. After seeing WW I can’t imagine it some how being some sort of catalyst as being the reason that there’s a change needed in the JL story. I’d sure like to know this late in the game what exactly these re-shoots are accomplishing.

I don’t see how these re-shoots are late. The movie is a good 5 months away and it’s in post. It’s fairly common to do re-shoots at this stage.

I just picked on the time frame. Through August is cutting it close. Steve…..thanks for comments. The only thing I’m not particularity relaxed over is that this could be the last time we see Superman in a movie for quite some time. WW was good but I would be totally blown away if it does the bank that BvS did.

Actually, here’s the interesting thing: following Wonder Woman’s extremely strong reception and assuming Justice League is received well enough as well (anything above 65-70 should deliver them a hit), we may end up seeing Superman sooner than we expected. DC has announced a massive line-up, but according to the Internet (lol but yeah), they are barely in pre-production for most of them. Outside of Batman (and now the Wonder Woman sequel that’s certainly happening), I can see them wanting to give Superman another, more conventional try, as he remains a very bankable name that’s a much smaller risk than anything… Read more »

Almost every movie nowadays will have built in Reshoots. Literally…every single movie of this size does this. Unfortunately the media and internet have been very slow to no longer equate reshoots to “OMFG this movie is going to be horrible..DC is horrible!!!!!!” Remember Wonder Woman rumors? Yeah…anyway…Relax. This was always on the schedule and initially had Zack doing them until his daughter passed away. They’ve already said these are not extensive, just fine tuning. Which is why they now budget and schedule them in for movies like these. I have a feeling that the positive reaction to Wonder Woman will… Read more »
