Before Batman v Superman, there was going to be Superman vs. Wonder Woman.
It’s a classic, bittersweet case of “what could’ve been.” George Miller‘s abandoned Justice League Mortal movie remains mostly a mystery to us, confined to the reaches of our imagination. But talking about the possibilities of never-made movies is always fascinating, and one of the the scrapped film’s cast members, Jay Baruchel (who was set to play villain Maxwell Lord), took a walk down memory lane to reveal some tantalizing details of the never-made film — including a brutal throwdown between two of the World’s Finest.

2017’s Justice League Part One will mark the first time the Justice League has officially assembled in a live-action feature film, but there were plenty of attempts to bring the superhero team to the big screen before that. One of the most famous is George Miller‘s Justice League Mortal, which had a cast in place before the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike derailed it altogether.
Since then, it’s become one of the great what-ifs of superhero movie fandom, alongside the likes of Tim Burton’s Superman Lives. But while we’ll never actually get to see the film that could’ve been, we have a tiny taste of it today. Photographer Mark Rogers has shared a couple of photos of Megan Gale in costume as Wonder Woman in Miller’s canceled film. See the Justice League Mortal Wonder Woman images after the jump.

Just this past week, we learned a documentary is in the works that will chronicle the abandoned attempt by director George Miller to adapt the DC Comics superhero team Justice League for the big screen. Now the team behind the documentary is getting some buzz started for the project by revealing art via Twitter.
What claims to be the official Twitter account for the documentary, tentatively titled Miller’s Justice League Mortal, has revealed three pieces of concept art created when the film was still developing several years ago. Two pieces feature Wonder Woman in action, while the other shows what Aquaman potentially could have looked like. Check out George Miller’s Justice League concept art after the jump. Read More »
Warner Bros tried hard to push a movie based on the Justice League of America into production before the writers strike. But they couldn’t get all their ducks in a row, and the project was put on an indefinite hold. The names of most of the young cast had been leaked onto the interwebs, with not many fans happy with the choices. And now that the strike is over, Warner has announced that they are pushing forward with plans for a 2009 release.
The contract options of the cast members were not exercised, but the young cast was assured by the studio that they want to make the film with them in it. You can see a full list of the rumored cast below. George Miller is still attached to direct and is in pre-production on the film in Australia. First-time husband and wife screenwriters Michele and Kieran Mulroney are currently polishing up the script.
- Adam Brody – The Flash
- Common – Green Lantern
- Armie Hammer Jr. – Batman
- Megan Gale – Wonder Woman
- D.J. Cotrona – Superman (rumored)
- Hugh Keays-Byrne – Martian Manhunter (rumored)
- Teresa Palmer – Talia Al Ghul (rumored)
I don’t know about you guys, but I was hoping that this project would fall off the map into development hell, later to be reborn with a new non-teen titans vision.

Australian Who Magazine is reporting that 32-year-old Australian Supermodel Megan Gale has been cast as Wonder Woman in George Miller’s Justice League of America. AICN has confirmed the report with multiple sources, so this looks to be legit, and not just another one of the countless internet casting rumors.
Megan has only appeared in two films thus far: the 2001 Italian film Stregati dalla luna, and the 2005 Rob Cohen movie Stealth. She stands 5’10”, has brown hair and green eyes. Gale seems to physically embody the Wonder Woman character much better than previously rumored actresses. Her age is also much older than most of the rumored cast, which some have jokingly referred to as the “Teen Titans”.
