Director Zack Snyder has always enjoyed teasing things on social media. Yes, that means he’s at it again this week. On the social media app, Vero, he released a photo of a stage of post-production on the upcoming Justice League.
The app is exclusively on mobile, making it pretty difficult to find an embed link anywhere online. However, a WB employee took a screen shot and Tweeted for the world to see.

Aside from the sweet editing suite, we’re looking at a shot from what looks to be towards the end of the film. The time stamp at the top left indicates that it’s 2 hours and 9 minutes into the flick, which is around the usual runtime for a comic book movie. There could be about 20-40 more minutes attached there, but considering that Diana is no longer in battle armor, it’s safe to say that this is likely after all the action has ended.
It looks like Diana is talking to someone, likely Bruce, but it’s hard to really recognize from the back of their heads. Also, it looks like Gal Gadot is (but it’s tough to really recognize from the back of their heads) standing there with a microphone in front of her, likely doing ADR for her character.
ADR stands for Automated Dialogue Replacement, which means the actors would come in and record new audio. It is most often done provide clearer audio for dialogue that was likely difficult to hear during the original shoot.
It’s not really worth speculating exactly why ADR is needed here as it is standard for most movies in post. To be clear, that means it is NOT an indication of any trouble brewing behind the scenes.
It’s always nice to see behind-the-scenes photos from filmmakers are really excited for the film they’re making. Are you excited yet?
