There might be some confusion around. The four-hour R-rated film HBO Max will arrive in mid-March, and producer Deborah Sneider has now cleared how much of that material was new.
“People kept thinking, ‘Oh, they went and shot so much stuff,’ and I go, ‘we really shot a scene, like an extra [scene]. I spent three days shooting here. That’s it. That’s why we took over, “” the producer (and Jack’s wife) told the Lightcast Podcast.
The scene is portrayed in Jared Leto’s The Joker, portrayed. Director Zack Snyder confirmed that Leto did not reveal the villain of his suicide squad in the original plan for the Justice League. Ben Affleck, Ezra Miller and Amber Hurd were reported to be in rehab for the scene, with footage of Miller shot from afar.
“It was strange also because Ezra [Miller] Was shooting [Fantastic Beasts at the time] And he is in the scene, “said Deborah Snyder.” Therefore, we shot him from afar. Zac zoomed in because he was on Fantastic Beasts. Luckily, his crew is amazing. They were like, ‘We will help you!’ So, we got a green screen and they had a camera feed and a zoom. He got through Zoom to direct Ezra and we put him in. “
A year later, Warner Bros. gave Zack Snyder the green light in early 2020 to put together his cut of the 2017 superhero film. He swept away the Reservaets who came to capture Joss Whedon after Jack moved away due to a family tragedy. Now only Jack’s original shots, which were left on the cutting room floor, are in the film.
So most of the footage was already captured. Jack’s inclusion of dropped characters, including the CGI-heavy villain Darkseid, required new visual effects shots. WarnerMedia and HBO Max reported $ 70 million to help them do so.
Deborah reported that many of the new shots featured design changes to some CGI-heavy characters. The visual effects of the extensive original footage also had to be completed.
“The running time is about four hours. If you think about it, how much extra time it is, and then you think about how heavy the visual effects of these superhero films are, we get 2,650 in six months — some weird visual effects. Shots, “she said. “And usually, when you do these films, what happens is, as you’re shooting, you start to turn shots. Listen, we had a lot of property built, but I have A lot of things seem to have changed the way the theatrical release was released.
“And through this process, as we were working on the film, [there were] Some of the things they wanted to change were some of the characters’ designs. Therefore, we want to go back to the original intention … Jack’s intention in terms of the characters, and to rebuild those models. But then only to do so many shots. “
