#DeletedScenes - That Justice League Movie we never got

With the announcement that Zack Snyder & David Goyer WILL ALSO be the ones to handle the Justice League movie after the Superman Vs. Batman one.

While that isn't super-duper-news in my eyes, let's us this excuse to talk about the previous JLA movie that never got made...

See this apparently random photo?

This is a picture of the entire cast from the never-made 2008 film Justice League: Mortal, which was supposed to be produced by George Miller, co-writer and director of the Mad Max series (including the upcoming new entry "Fury Road").

It never entered filming, what with the Writers Guild Strike of 2007-08 hit the scene back then.

This photo was taken with the entire cast together at the time.

Yeah, this whole thing comes as a huge surprise. Like a huge random secret that was finally revealed. The secret production probably helped can the entire project since then that means there was no marketing involved at the moment.

The film would have featured Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Teresa Palmer as Talia Al Ghul, Zoe Kasan as Iris Allen and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord who was apparently supposed to be the bad guy in the film. So I guess they were going for the OMAC storyline?
