With Wonder Woman out and dominating the box office, DC Entertainment has been able to shift their focus to their next release, Justice League. As fans started to shift their focus from one film to another as well, rumors about reshoots started to amplify. With Joss Whedon finishing up the film due to Zack Snyder’s departure, many took that to mean that there would be significant changes to the film, and the reshoot fervor has only accelerated in recent weeks. However, DC’s Geoff Johns isn’t phased by all the rumormongering.
When a fake Joss Whedon Twitter account thanked Johns for asking him “to reshoot the entire Justice League movie,” Johns couldn’t help but throw back a witty retort: “Did I mention we’re going to put Spider-Man and Scooby Doo in it?”
Adding some absurdity to the already absurd rumors, Johns’ reply was met largely with applause and memes about how “savage” his response was. You can view the original tweet and Johns’ response below.
Thank you @geoffjohns for asking me to reshoot the entire Justice League movie, I’m honored

6 Reasons Why ‘Justice League’ Could Be Better Than ‘Avengers’
The DC Cinematic Universe needs a win and Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder have their fingers crossed Wonder Woman and Justice League will give things a boost. Aquaman keeps adding members to the cast and is set to start shooting soon while Flash has already lost two directors, meaning there’s a lot riding on WB’s next two big DC movies to secure a future for their cinematic plans.
There’s a lot to look forward to in Justice League and quite a few reasons to believe it could match or surpass The Avengers. WB is introducing most of their supporting characters for the first time in Justice League opposed to how Marvel had already introduced every member of the team by the time they came together for The Avengers. That means we have a lot to watch for as we meet a lot of characters on the big-screen for the first time.
