Documentary to Tell of George Miller’s Justice League

If this film had happened back in 2009, the cinematic superhero universe that we know of now could be very different indeed.

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was on the path to making Justice League Mortal, a DC comics adaptation that would have brought the Justice League to our screens the year after Marvel’s Iron Man hit cinemas. It’s a fascinating ‘what if?’ story, and it’s one ripe for a doco.

Aussie director Ryan Unicomb and producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell have told Inside Film that they are going to be bringing the world a documentary, Miller’s Justice League Mortal, looking at the development of the high-profile failed project, one that was almost set to go before Warner Bros. decided it was a no go.

As THR reports, the film was to have the following cast:

Armie Hammer (Batman), DJ Cotrona (Superman), Megan Gale (Wonder Woman), Adam Brody (The Flash), Common (Green Lantern), Santiago Cabrera (Aquaman), Teresa Palmer (Talia Al Ghul), Zoe Kasan (Iris Allen), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Martian Manhunter) and Jay Baruchel (Maxwell Lord).

“We wanted to get the story out there to help us to gauge interest,” Unicomb told Inside Film.

“I have always been fascinated with [the] project, which would be in the same vein as 2013’s Jodorowsky’s Dune and this year’s The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?”

Zack Snyder will now be the one bringing the Justice League to the big screen; Justice League Part 1 in 2017 and Part 2 in 2019.
