The huge cliffhanger shot by the original director Zack Snyder has reportedly been removed during an 'extensive' overhaul.
"Justice League" will reportedly have a new ending. According to SlashFilm, Joss Whedon who replaced Zack Snyder at the helm is completely redoing the final scene. The DC superhero film originally had a huge cliffhanger to tease the big bad guy for the next installment, but it's been scrapped during an "extensive" overhaul.
Rumor has it, the movie was supposed to have Darkseid descending to earth. However, the looming threat of Darkseid is now downplayed after Whedon brought in "Wonder Woman" star Robin Wright for a flashback explaining Steppenwolf's origins without blatantly showing the arrival of his master on the earth.
Ben Affleck who plays Batman recently weighed in on the director change. "It's a little bit unorthodox," he told Entertainment Weekly. "Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was horrible. For the movie, the best person we could've possibly found was Joss. We got really lucky that he stepped in."
The actor called the "Justice League" film "an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes." He added, "I've never had that experience before making a movie. I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we've done with Joss."
