Well, ‘Justice League’ is playing in theaters here in America, and while the film is technically making money in its worldwide cinematic turn, many critics and fans have not been overly kind to the film. Much debated is the work on the film that Joss Whedon did once original director Zack Snyder had to step aside for personal reasons. In a recent interview, cinematographer Fabian Wagner did spill some rather intriguing details of some things that audiences didn’t get to see in the finished cinematic release.
In speaking about moments and visuals from the film’s production that didn’t make the cut into the version presented in theaters, Wagner confirmed that there were quite a few fun items that audiences didn’t see. When asked directly about if scenes were filmed with Superman wearing an all-black suit, Wagner said:
“There were. It’s a cool looking costume. Sadly, we didn’t see that either in the final cut.”
So, aside from the exciting prospect of seeing Superman in the black suit at some point during a Director’s Cut or in deleted scenes, there were apparently other full-length scenes that didn’t make it to the screen?
“Quite a few scenes. Zack takes his time with telling the stories, and I’ve always liked that about his movies. There are a few scenes that I was very much looking forward to seeing which unfortunately got cut.”
One of these other scenes that Wagner is likely referring to may be a scene glimpsed in the final trailer for the film but was noticeably absent in the movie itself. In it, Alfred (Jeremy Irons) is shown working on or near to the Batmobile but stops and addresses an off-screen figure by saying “They said you’d come. Let’s hope you’re not too late.” It’s probably Supes, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it’s Ryan Reynolds in his full Green Lantern getup.
‘Justice League’ is playing in US theaters now.
