Wonder Woman Trailer

Richard Donner Tribute - Geoff Johns and Kevin Feige

Today comic book movies are all the rage. In fact, there are so many that every now and then there’s a thinkpiece talking about the possibility of superhero fatigue, though the box office shows that seems to be more of a wish from certain critics rather than something that’s actually happening. If anything, audiences are just getting smarter about what kind of comic book movies they want and the subgenre is evolving. But we may have never gotten the superhero movies of today if it wasn’t for one man.

Richard Donner was the first filmmaker to bring a comic book superhero to the big screen in a respectable way with Superman: The Movie back in 1978. But beyond that, Donner also gave Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns their first jobs in the entertainment industry when they were fresh out of college, and the two offered up a tribute to the director recently at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

But now it appears that there may have actually been something to it after all, because Gad has tweeted a photo of him meeting with some influential people at DC Films and the rumor has begun anew.

justice league reshoots rumor

Reshoots are a part of the movie-making business. And it can seem overzealous to simply report on the fact that reshoots are happening — trust me, I’m as tired of these kind of stories as you are, especially when they act like this is something out of the ordinary. In many cases, they’re a good thing and help make a good movie great. But when reports say that Justice League has essentially been “remade…twice” after “significant” reshoots, and is looking at even more reshoots down the barrel, that’s seems — well — significant.
