Back in 2007, following the relative successes of both Superman Returns and Batman Begins, Warner Bros. was looking to move forward with a Justice League movie. Mad Max director George Miller was tapped to direct, Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer was set to don the cowl, D.J. Cotrona was cast as Superman, Megan Gale was up for Wonder Woman and Adam Brody was on board to play the Flash. However, due to an escalating budget, the writers strike and fan ambivalence toward the project, the movie was shelved.
That’s not the end of the story though.
The script for the movie, titled Justice League: Mortal has surfaced online and you can read it below.
The script drew on source material from JLA: Tower of Babel, Superman: Sacrifice and Crisis on Infinite Earths #8 and also saw Aquaman, Maxwell Lord and Martian Manhunter make an appearance.
