Exclamation Is WHEDON Changing SNYDER's Original JUSTICE LEAGUE Ending?

A new ending to Justice League is being filmed as part of the Joss Whedon-led reshoots, according to SlashFilm's Ben Pearson.

The reported new scenes will change an unconfirmed cliffhanger ending with the primary antagonist Steppenwolf revealing himself as an emissary to an unseen Darkseid to offer up a more definitive finale. Steppenwolf's role in the film has also been increased in these reshoots, says Pearson.

Without citing sources, SlashFilm asserts that part of the reshoots were to avoid a cliffhanger and lighten the tone of the film so as not to end on a dour moment. This piggybacks off early comments from actor Joe Morton that Cyborg's storyline was also changed in reshoots for the same reason.

No mention was made of how these reported changes could affect plans to include Darkseid in a sequel.

Whedon previously stated his distaste for cliffhangers, saying in 2013 that he found the ending of The Empire Strikes Back "appalling," saying the film "didn't have an ending."

Justice League is due out in theaters November 17.

I had heard it was to lighten the tone, but didn't know about the cliffhanger. I'm very curious to know how much is really Whedon and how much is DC Executives. Kinda cold-blooded to pull the rug out from Snyder when he's away though.

The whole thing about Steppenwolf being the antagonist instead of leading to Darkseid...I don't see a problem with it but I guess Whedon does. Isn't that pretty much what Avengers 1 did? Loki was the bad guy but at the very end you saw Thanos? I imagined this to be the same but maybe Steppenwolf just wasn't in it enough. So much time is needed to put the team together and introduce the new characters.

As long as they don't leave Darkseid out of the DCEU completely, I'm fine with it. I'm actually more interested in who Alfred was talking to in the Batcave. Probably Supes, but there is a shiny green reflection in his glasses, as seen in closeup on Youtube.

I'm on the side of letting Whedon do what he wants to do. Not trying to take anything away from Snyder, but it seems everything after 300 has not been all that awesome to me.

Whedon has been wanting to take on DC movies for a long time, and with Avengers - he finally showed the folks in Hollywood that in the right hands, a comic book movie can do REALLY well. And now, it looks like the right tweaks are happening to make this more than what the trailers have been showing these past few months.

Also, any chance Nathan Fillion shows up as Green Lantern...?

Well, I'm really hoping GL shows up. Not that keen on Fillion as Hal though, kinda think that ship has sailed for him. I think it would be great if the GL Corps. shows up at the last minute to turn the tide of battle, lead by Hal and Sinestro!
