JUSTICE LEAGUE Reshoots May Point to Troubles

JUSTICE LEAGUE Reshoots May Point to Troubles

With two directors, their films known for having wildly different tones, working on the project, Justice League may be in a bit of tonal trouble. Join Nerdist News Talks Back Host Jessica Chobot, Mothership Writer Amy Vorpahl, Nerdist Producer Jason Nguyen, and Jessica’s Little Buddy Andrew Bowser as they discuss Star Wars: The Last JediJustice League, and TV revivals.

In the latest of Entertainment Weekly‘s Star Wars coverage, director Rian Johnson and Daisy Ridley revealed that The Last Jedi will lean heavily into Rey’s parentage. However, Johnson warns that Rey’s family might not be as important as either she or the audience thinks. That being said, if Obi-Wan isn’t her grandfather I’m going to yell at the screen. Additionally, audiences will learn a bit about Finn’s family, though not necessarily in Episode VIII.

In troubling news, Justice League star Ben Affleck called the movie “an interesting product of two directors” in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. We’d expect someone promoting his movie to be a little more excited about the project, but Affleck has been known to be extremely candid about his opinions on Batman and the DCEU. Since Zack Snyder’s DC films have been dark and gritty, and Joss Whedon’s projects are snarky and fun, we’re afraid the film might suffer from tonal inconsistencies. That being said, we hope we’re wrong, and the movie blows us out of Aquaman’s water.

To wrap up today, the panel discussed news that Bryan Fuller has been “in conversations” about bringing his beloved horror/cooking show Hannibal back for a long-rumored fourth season. Replying to someone on Twitter, Fuller said conversations couldn’t start until two years following the final episode of the third season (due to contracts and all that), and that the conversations have begun by executive producer Martha De Laurentiis. This is great news! We all love Hannibal, but it of course got us talking about a number of other revived and rebooted television shows recently, such as Gilmore Girls, X-Files, and the recently announced King of the Hill

Is there a show that is no longer with us that you think should get a comeback? Let us know in the comments below, and we’ll see ya next week!!
