As we all know Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the precursor to a Justice League movie, now a documentary is being put together for what could of been the original “Justice League” movie.
In 2008 Warner Brothers pulled the plug on the movie George Miller was set to direct. Announced in 2007 and planned for a 2009 release, the movie entitled “Justice League Mortal” was abandoned.
Now director Ryan Unicomb believe there is a story to be told about the aborted superhero movie that he plans to chronicle in a new feature-length documentary. Unicomb wants to give an unbiased account of the project’s development, pre-production and cancellation
Christopher Nolan’s, Batman Begins came out in 2005 and while Miller’s “Justice League Mortal” was being planned “The Dark Knight” was in development and would later be released in 2008.
George Miller was not happy with the idea of two versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman existing in theaters causing an issue and when the writer’s strike came about it created even more problems, not to mention conflicts over the rising cost of the movie.
Several iconic characters were set to appear in Justice League Mortal. The movie would have starred Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Common as Green Lantern (presumably John Stewart), and Adam Brody as the Flash. Also cast was Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Zoe Kasan as Iris West Allen, and Teresa Palmer as Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, Talia al Ghul.
No exact time table as to when the documentary will be completed and release, but will be interesting to see exactly how different George Miller’s “Justice League” would of looked compared to what we are seeing from Zach Snyder’s look.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Part One is scheduled to open in theaters on November 17, 2017. Part Two is scheduled to arrive June 14, 2019.
