Zack Snyder's Justice League is set to create headlines once again as reshoots for the new version appear to be gearing up soon. It was already revealed that Jared Leto will return as Joker, but details about his role in Snyder's narrative are still being kept under wraps.
Not only that, the rest of the cast, such as Ben Affleck and Ray Fisher, is reportedly joining the reshoots, seemingly hinting that their character arcs will be further expanded. This is on top of the rumored involvement of Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke along with the confirmation that Amber Heard's Mera will also take part in the filming. As it stands, the cast for additional filming for Zack Snyder's Justice League appears to be stacked.
As expected, Snyder recently teased fans that filming is imminent for his director's cut. And now, it appears that cameras will start rolling sooner than expected thanks to a brand new reveal from the director himself.
In a post from Vero, Zack Snyder shared another glimpse at the behind-the-scenes progress of the reshoots for his version of Justice League.
The video showcased a man, who appears to be Snyder himself, bouncing off from a trampoline, along with a caption saying, "warm up." The caption could reference the start of filming today.

WHAT THIS MEANS
At first glance, the video that Snyder shared doesn't reveal much, but it's still refreshing to see the director's excitement about the upcoming reshoots. With filming presumably starting today, this should bode well for the production timeline of Zack Snyder's Justice League since it was confirmed that it will be released sometime next year.
It is unclear how long the reshoots will progress, but it's a good sign that Snyder confirmed that he is already on the actual set of the film. By connecting the dots, this could also mean that the rest of the cast are already on the premises, potentially gearing up for filming as well.
It's a safe bet that the cast and crew of the Snyder Cut are subject to extensive health protocols to avoid further delays, especially after another DCEU project in the form of Matt Reeves' The Batman was shut down last month after its lead star, Robert Pattinson, tested positive for COVID-19.
It remains to be seen which scenes will be filmed for the reshoots, but speculation from fans suggests that a chunk of it could be for the Knightmare sequence that was previously featured during Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. In a way, this makes sense since this famous sequence was ultimately scrapped from the theatrical version of the film.
Whatever the case, the start of reshoots for Zack Snyder's Justice League could ultimately lead to more hints from the director, providing fans with tidbits to boost their excitement for the film's much-awaited release next year.
