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.”
