We’ve heard a lot over the years about Justice League Mortal, George Miller’s scrapped attempt to bring DC’s finest heroes to the big screen, but we’ve barely seen anything from it. A piece of concept art here, a costume there. But now we actually have our look at the League that could’ve been, suited up. Sort of. You’re gonna need to squint.
Jon Schnepp shared the incredibly pixelated image of what Miller’s League would have looked like on Collider’s regular superhero video series, Collider Heroes recently. The team was as follows: Armie Hammer as Batman, DJ Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as the Flash, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, and Common as Green Lantern. Although it’s not the greatest quality picture, it’s one of our only looks at the characters in what their comic book-inspired costumes would have looked like on screen. Check it out below, and skip to 48:05 in the video to see a bit more:
It’s kind of wild just how faithful a lot of the looks are to the comics, although in the modern age of trimmed down, militaristic takes on movie superhero suits, it’s probably a bit jarring to imagine seeing them on the big screen. But alas, for now, this is the closest thing we’ll likely ever see of Miller’s final vision for a Justice League movie. That is, unless a much cleaner image of the team comes along one day.
