In one particular scene featuring Aquaman (Jason Momoa), a new continuity error discovered in Justice League may show the seams of the hefty reshoots done in post-production.
Continuity errors are prominent all across movies, TV shows, etc. Even some of the biggest films released each year have a moment or two where something is where it wasn’t originally, or a character has on a different piece of clothing and so on. A big example of this recently was, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, where fans can easily spot characters or vehicles that shouldn’t be where they are due to the hefty reshoots in the third act. Of course, another example of this is 2017’s Justice League.
After a hectic post-production process, Joss Whedon was brought on to the project to not only do some re-writes but also to direct a large chunk of the reshoots. The rushed production eventually led to some of the seams between Zack Snyder’s cut and Joss Whedon’s cut becoming fairly visible. The most recent error found features Aquaman returning to his local bar after rescuing a fisherman. Take a look at the Reddit post below to see the error for yourself.
As you can see, although the green slime is present in the moment where Aquaman sees it close-up, the shot of him drinking and the shot after he looks at his hand do not feature the green slime. From afar, it looks like the bottom picture may have a hint of green but upon zooming in, you can see that it’s completely clean. This is most likely due to the scene being re-shot in post-production, but that hasn’t been officially confirmed just yet. It does introduce the interesting question of what exactly the scene originally had in store for Aquaman.
It’s been revealed in the past by Momoa himself that much of his subplot was removed from the film, so it could’ve been set up for him running into a fellow Atlantean or maybe he had to stop by the bar after a tense conversation with Mera (Amber Heard) or Vulko (Willem Dafoe).
