As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth).

In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script for a Justice League movie. This caught many observers by surprise as WB had just released Bryan Singer's Superman Returns the year before, and Chris Nolan was just beginning production of The Dark Knight. Leaving many fans wondering if Brandon Routh or Christian Bale was part of the equation. In September of 2007, George Miller ("Mad Max") came on board as director and would later confirmed that his film would feature new interpretations of Superman and Batman.

Warner Bros. fast tracked the film in hopes of avoiding the Writers Guild of America strike, and scheduled the film to begin filming in February 2008 in Australia. This is when the perfect storm happened. Recently-elected prime minister, Kevin Rudd, changed the tax rebate incentive program and then the writer's strike took place. With an estimated budget well over $200 million, and with no ability to make changes to the script, due to the strike, Warner Bros. had to pull the plug on the project. It also didn't help that fan backlash to the film was incredibly high, so anticipation for it was lukewarm at best.
From the bottom- director George Miller, Jay Baruchel (Maxwell Lord), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Martian Manhunter). Next row- Santiago Cabrera (Aquaman), Adam Brody (The Flash), Teresa Palmer (Talia al Ghul), stuntman Greg Van Borssum, and producer Barrie Osborne(Lord of the Rings). Armie Hammer (Batman) is at the very back and D.J. Cotrona (Superman) directly in front of him.

wookiefit76 - 4/7/2014, 1:10 PM
It would have been great to see them in their costumes just once.
revloveR - 4/7/2014, 1:11 PM

carrowsboy - 4/7/2014, 1:16 PM
What awful casting! Aside from Gale and Cotrona, everyone else is horribly miscast.

Megan Gale looked way better than skin and bones Gal Gadot. She has the look and she is tall.
Nomis - 4/7/2014, 1:26 PM
Could've been worse.

ALmazing - 4/7/2014, 1:27 PM
So WW would have been played by another model who has no acting experience, great, so glad this didn't happen.
Nomis - 4/7/2014, 1:27 PM
And Megan Gale would've been a better choice for Wonder Woman.
MiracleMe - 4/7/2014, 1:27 PM
Wow! That Megan 'WW' Gale is beautiful! I had a gf named Megan and another named Gayle so I'll just say - Smokin' hot Megan Gale was my girlfriend.


Yeah. That happened.
Andree24 - 4/7/2014, 1:31 PM
Megan Gale is hot. I wonder why Warner Brothers, let this movie get so far into development, before completely pulling the plug. A lot of money and time was just......wasted. Very weird.
wookiefit76 - 4/7/2014, 1:37 PM
@ Gusto

Come on, I don't want to fill this thread with great Bruins and crappy Red Wings pics. I have a Chewy thread to deal with.
Monitorearthprime - 4/7/2014, 1:40 PM
I would have considered this news if we actually saw them in costume. This is just a bunch of people posing for the camera.
CherryBomb - 4/7/2014, 1:41 PM
Megan Gale is an amazon.
She's stunning and has a very nice, athletic body. It's a shame she never got to be Wonder Woman!

I'd love for her to be in a solo WW movie as a supporting Amazon character.
sKeemAn - 4/7/2014, 1:50 PM
Glad this didn't happen cast is all bad!!
sKeemAn - 4/7/2014, 1:51 PM
except for Megan. She is a goddess.
Unionjack - 4/7/2014, 1:52 PM
So glad this didn't see the light of day, although would have loved for the concept artwork to be leaked online!

One thing i don't understand is why they don't turn movies like this and the superman lives scripts into animated movies.
Joementum - 4/7/2014, 1:55 PM
Gonna see some FF cast pics like this soon.
Gyasiman - 4/7/2014, 1:56 PM
This movie looked terrible.

George Miller is an old director who would have no idea how to direct a CBM. And that terrible, horrid cast was going to be the worst ensemble in film history.

That film was going to be at a depth all it's own. Possibly regarded as the worst film of all time. DC films would've went back in hibernation as they did after Schumacher's Batgay and Robin. One can only wonder if it would've turned the public against all CBMs like Schumacher did.
BlackIceJoe - 4/7/2014, 2:00 PM
So still no shots of the costumes for Justice League: Mortal. I know this was most likely just very bad. But I still would have loved to see what the movie would have been like. That is if we would still be getting a Justice League in the future.

I wonder when we'll get leaked pictures of the suits from that cancelled movie. How long did it take to get the Superman Lives images..15 years?
Deadpoolisawesome - 4/7/2014, 2:06 PM
Noticing a trend with WBs WW casting. Screw acting talent just make sure she's hot. Megan is way hotter though Gal is still hot. BUT NEITHER CAN ACT. This movie would've been a trainwreck just like MOS 2 will be a trainwreck.
Deadpoolisawesome - 4/7/2014, 2:07 PM
@Andree GTFO with all your dc fanboying MOS sucked and MOS 2 will suck harder why do your comments keep consisting of sucking DCs D***
