More actors are coming on board, and the budget for Zack Snyder’s re-cut of Justice League keeps rising but being approved by HBO Max. They must think they are on to something.
Alongside the news that Jared Leto will be returning to the role of The Joker from Suicide Squad comes news today that Joe Manganiello is reportedly set to reprise his role as Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke. The actor had a few seconds of screen time with Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in a post credits stinger for Justice League in 2017 that seemed to be paving the way for something bigger.
The budget has also increased dramatically as the production appears to be taking on a new form. It will now reportedly cost $70 million in order to properly finish the editing and visual effects alongside the additional photography.
Original post-production crew is returning as the cast record additional dialogue and scenes to make the four hour long version.
