In 2007 George Miller signed on to direct a live action Justice League film. Armie Hammer was cast as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Common as Green Lantern, Adam Brody as The Flash, Anton Yelchin as The Flash (Wally West), Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, and Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter. However, the movie never made it into production and it was canceled about a year later due a denied tax rebate and the writers strike. Here’s a video of Armie Hammer talking a little about the project in 2010:
Unfortunately no photos or concept art has made its way online. Which is too bad, it would be cool to see what Batman would have looked like. However, Superhero Movie News got a hold of the script and put it online. Here’s a brief summary of what the movie was about:
Batman has created Brother Eye, a Skynet-like program that watches the worlds metahumans and can terminate them at any given time, if need-be. Batman doesn’t trust people with powers as he’s afraid that they could, at any moment, snap and take over the planet. However, characters like Iris Allen, The Flash, Wally West, and Superman (among others) prove Batman wrong in the sense that maybe trusting people isn’t a bad thing and that you should try to look at the good in people, even powerful people, as opposed to the bad.
I didn’t want to waste your time (or mine) so I checked with Latino Review’s El Mayibme and he confirmed that the script is legit.
@BatmanNewsCom yes it unfortunately is.
