JLA 2017: Financial Cost Skyrockets as Production Nears Completion

Well….the most anticipated movie of the year (for me actually); Justice League of America may have to cost the producers a lot more than they initially budgeted as reports indicate that the movie’s budgetary allocation has been increased to a figure near the tune of 300 million dollars.

According to IGN.com, who quotes the Wall Street Journal who also quotes people close to the motion picture production group (quite a lot of quoting, I must admit…..) the costs are being ramped up due to the refilming of particular scenes by the stand-in director Josh Whedon (who replaced Zack Snyder earlier this year due to a family tragedy). This and digital alterations to Henry Cavill’s physical features for the role are among the prime reasons for the increase in costs (there must be others even though they haven’t been mentioned yet according to other sources).

Justice League will be released in theaters on November 17. The movie covers the events that takes place months after the events of Batman v Superman and will have a much lighter tone than Batman v Superman; it’s a fun ensemble focused on Batman assembling the team.

Based on the comic books published by DC Comics. Warner Bros. Pictures originally tried to do a Justice League movie several years ago, with George Miller directing from a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney; however, the project was canned in 2008 due to a lack of tax breaks and script issues.

The movie is set to premiere on the November 17th this year (I am looking forward to it and I know you are too) and is expected to be a hit with comic nerds, superhero fans and neutrals alike…..Hopefully, It will turn out to be as top drawer as the trailer promises.
