More photos from Justice League: Mortal have appeared online courtesy of a filmmaker trying to create a documentary about the abandoned DC movie.
Ryan Unicomb, who released an image of Armie Hammer’s Batman cowl on Tuesday, uploaded three more Justice League images to his Instagram page. Two of those images are cropped versions of an image released in 2018, but the third is a new look at Megan Gale’s Wonder Woman that differs from the images from 2015.
In the caption, the filmmaker said he can’t share anything more for now and there isn’t much excitement for the documentary from the studio or the people involved in the original production. He says he’s trying to gather up as much material as possible before he gives a pitch.
“For now these are all I can share. I know there’s MASSIVE interest in the story behind #JusticeLeagueMortal but there is pushback from the studio and most of the creatives involved,” Unicomb said.
“It’s understandably a sore point for many involved. We’re collating everything we have to be able to pitch it properly. It may require a Kickstarter or something at some stage, or it may not. I’m 5 years into the journey of getting this made and I VERY much appreciate your patience. I know how important this lost chapter is to us all; as movie goers, as comic readers, as pop culture fans. Rest assured we WANT to be able to show you EVERY costume properly. We WANT to show you the Batmobile. We WANT to show you the Fortress of Solitude. We WANT the artists who worked tirelessly for months to get their well deserved due. We’ll continue to do our best. Be well. Stay safe!”
Justice League: Mortal would’ve been directed by George Miller, a director of the four Mad Max movies, and, most importantly, Babe: Pig in the City. The film would’ve starred Hammer as Bruce Wayne / Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Clark Kent / Superman, Adam Brody as Barry Allen / The Flash, Gale as Wonder Woman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as J’onn J’onzz / Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Arthur Curry / Aquaman, and Common as John Stewart / Green Lantern.
The movie was shelved in favor of Warner Bros. creating another Batman movie with Christian Bale as well as other solo movies such as Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds. A Justice League movie would eventually come out in 2017 with a completely different cast and its interesting backstory.
Right now, DC movies are reportedly looking at more R-rated content and mid-budget movies for HBO Max. There’s also been recent word of the Flash movie being “a different version of Flashpoint.”
