George Miller's JUSTICE LEAGUE: MORTAL Script Has Leaked Online!

In 2007, George Miller ("Mad Max") was to direct Warner Bros. most ambitious comic book movie, Justice League: Mortal, but a writer's strike, a change in Australia's tax rebate incentive program, and fan uproar over casting put a halt to it. Now, come read the script!

Back in July, I posted an article that featured a possible breakdown of the Justice League: Mortal script, that an anonymous 4chan member claimed to have read. And now, superheromoviesnews.com has posted a link to the actual Justice League: Mortal script (click here). Knowing that some of you are too lazy to read a full script, you can head over to superheromoviesnews.com for their review (click here). A special thanks to Robert M. Laurence for spotting, and making me aware of this.

For those of you that aren't familiar, after WB released Superman Returns and Chris Nolan had started work on The Dark Knight, George Miller ("Happy Feet") was chosen to direct a Justice League film. Neither Christian Bale nor Brandon Routh would be apart of the cast, as this would be a separate universe and star Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") as Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") as The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") as Superman and Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") as Wonder Woman. Sadly, it was never made with the main culprits being: the budget soared well over $200 million, Australia changed their tax rebate incentive program, a writer's strike eliminated any necessary script changes and fan interest was low based on a young group of unknown actors.

So, come enjoy some excerpts from the script, which I posted below. As I previously mentioned, the script is mostly based on three major comic book story arcs: JLA: Tower of Babel, Superman: Sacrifice, and an emotional ending that pays homage to Crisis on Infinite Earths #8.


D.J. Cotrona as Superman * Armie Hammer as Batman * Megan Gale as Wonder Woman



Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman * Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter * Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord




Teresa Palmer as Talia Al Ghul * Zoe Kazan as Iris West * Stephen Tobolowsky as Alfred Pennyworth




Common as John Stewart * Adam Brody as Barry Allen * Anton Yelchin as Wally West

anthonyEstark - 10/7/2013, 4:21 PM
Oh dang I'm glad this movie never happened!!!!!
ThePresidentGaming - 10/7/2013, 4:22 PM
Holy Shit.
MrDonut - 10/7/2013, 4:23 PM
This cast doesn't really same too promising, just can't really imagine them working together.
BezierCurve - 10/7/2013, 4:23 PM
Concept Art or GTFO
MrCBM56 - 10/7/2013, 4:24 PM
Never really liked the plot and outline I read. The ending sucked and it had just too much going on. And killing Flash and having the kid take his place?! No thanks.

I may read this later.
SuperCat - 10/7/2013, 4:25 PM
Lmao. Hammer as Batman. Would have been a disaster.
MrCBM56 - 10/7/2013, 4:26 PM
WTF. I tried to download and it said the file might harm my computer. [frick] it.
EpitomeofAwesome - 10/7/2013, 4:27 PM
Whoa. Good thing this didn't get made. I mean, no offense, but I didn't really like that.
Luigi - 10/7/2013, 4:31 PM
Can't wait to read it
beane2099 - 10/7/2013, 4:31 PM
I swear I've seen this article on this site before. Only it didn't have that goofy pic of Arnie Hammer (which is hilarious by the way).
Luigi - 10/7/2013, 4:32 PM
Oh yeah, wasn't this going to be motion-capture CG?
McNyagano - 10/7/2013, 4:35 PM
lol xD and still to this day we haven't had a Justice League film oh WB/DC, How I pity you:')
Darlene1974 - 10/7/2013, 4:35 PM
where the hell is the link?!?!?!?!?!.... it just shows that stoopid ilivid DOWNLOAD button?!?!?!?!
TheBoss117 - 10/7/2013, 4:37 PM
Ugh, crisis adverted
CherryBomb - 10/7/2013, 4:42 PM
Megan Gale IS Wonder Woman
JoeMomma29 - 10/7/2013, 4:44 PM
Blah!
27ShowStopper - 10/7/2013, 4:46 PM
Thank God it never happened. Henry Cavill IS Superman. I wouldn't have mind Adrian Brody as Flash, tho. This new DCU is going to blow people away. I think Batfleck will be our definitive Batman. Hoping and praying Arrow/Flash/Gotham/Constantine are cannon.
BritishMonkey - 10/7/2013, 4:48 PM
I got bored reading this.
bs77 - 10/7/2013, 4:48 PM
Aside from literally every actor being miscast in this movie, it's a total rehash of DC animated stories we've already seen. There's nothing original about it.

I think we lucked out. This movie would've been so blah and the acting probably would've been below average considering they are almost all below average actors; only as strong as the weakest link... ugh... maybe we did avert a major crisis. We be waiting a long time for any DC live action films if this had seen the light.
DelTorite - 10/7/2013, 4:51 PM
With the exception of the two Flashs, this is the worst cast ever.
CherryBomb - 10/7/2013, 4:51 PM

Hey, thanks for linking to my review of the script on SuperheroMovieNews!!! Appreciate it!
Gambitz - 10/7/2013, 4:52 PM
I'm more interested in seeing some costume concept art......
MightyZeus - 10/7/2013, 4:53 PM
Some of the casting is weird, other than that i think that WB's should do a Justice Leaue movi before doing spin offs movies on other characters. That way WB's could see which character general audiences want to see have there own spin off film.

Folchibas - 10/7/2013, 5:00 PM
Mantinium....all caps which means we didn't read it and don't care to


But Common as John Stewart would be awesome
UltimateWarrior - 10/7/2013, 5:16 PM
I like how you picked the worst pics of all these actors you could find.
solidsnake512 - 10/7/2013, 5:18 PM
Its really dark and gritty shame it never happened but they couldn't find a better cast than this
Marxman12 - 10/7/2013, 5:19 PM
Bad or not I would have loved to see this film. I'm still hoping that a Flash movie is still in the works.
SonGoku - 10/7/2013, 5:21 PM
@mantinium

Dude, is your caps lock broken or something?
DioFoRio - 10/7/2013, 5:25 PM
@ Mantinium


Berserk - 10/7/2013, 5:25 PM
@mantinium, Is your caps lock broken? And why don't you ever type in complete grammatical sentences?

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 10/7/2013, 5:28 PM
It had my attention talking about Superman's "S" but once they mentioned the black suit I stopped reading.
Lemons - 10/7/2013, 5:29 PM
Not gonna lie, I thought the dialogue between Bruce and Alfred was spot on.
DioFoRio - 10/7/2013, 5:29 PM
I like where you're going Mantinium...Break it down HammaH!

TelaVizion - 10/7/2013, 5:36 PM
Jay???? Really????
JoeMomma29 - 10/7/2013, 5:36 PM
Ummmmm burn this script! Well some parts are okay.
JoeMomma29 - 10/7/2013, 5:38 PM
