Fans who thought that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a blast might want to start bracing themselves for this year’s DC Extended Universe (DCEU) film, namely Justice League. Justice League essentially picks up the story threads from Batman v Superman, with Batman and Wonder Woman assembling a team of heroes to take on the dark forces (i.e., Darkseid and his minions) en route to annihilate the Earth.
Longtime DC fans know, of course, that Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League film is far from the first feature-length adventure for the team. It is, however, the most expensive to date and could potentially kick off a big-screen superhero team as popular as Marvel’s Avengers. While Justice League still has a few months before its November 17 release date, a number of news items centered on the film have hit in recent weeks, offering us a glimpse into what we can expect to see.
Here are a few of the highlights.
1. Production may have completely wrapped
Jason Momoa took to social media in celebration of the film’s wrap party in Iceland. While it’s unclear if this occasion merely marks the end of filming in this particular location, a number of news outlets are indicating that Justice League could in fact be done with principal photography altogether. Granted, a production with as massive a scope as this film is almost certainly going to involve some reshoots, but it’s exciting to think that the bulk of shooting is already in the can for the hotly anticipated project.
