Justice League: Mortal was on track, with sets built, a cast and a director. However, the film fell out just weeks before filming began, because Warner Bros. was not willing to take a risk with the films budget. The budget was reportedly HUGE. The plan was to release the Justice League movie and then make spin off movies for each character.
The film was to feature Talia al Ghul, the OMACS and Maxwell Lord as villains, and the team roster was comprised of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and The Martian Manhunter. There was a mixed fan reaction and most of them hated the idea at that time. but DC and Warner bros could have gone with the film ahead. Warner bros are known for their involvement in altering source material and spoiling films and every fanboy hates that.
If DC goes the Marvel way making movies for each character we won’t get a JLA movie before 2018 or may be 20. Unlike Marvel comics the characters owned by DC comics are well known and well established not only in comic books but from the well known DC Animated Universe and other animated series. Unlike popularity of Thor and Captain America everyone knows who Flash and Martian Manhunter are.
Movies like these are highly anticipated especially for kids who grew up watching the Justice League Animated series. Ma n Of Steel (2013) and Green Lantern could be in the same continuity and who knows the movie may do wonders.
Actually, I want to see all sorts of stuff from this film! The costumes, the concept art, maybe even storyboards! Since the film’s not gonna happen now, I’d be really glad if Warner Bros. released this stuff! And of course, what would be really interesting would be to see the script.
However, is it possible that Warner Bros. is still planning on using this same script for when and if they make the actual Justice League movie? It would have to be tweaked, obviously, since, for instance, Green Lantern’s now going to be Hal Jordan. But could this still be the Justice League script we see on screen? Not only that, but, since they’re making the solo movies now. In any case I’ll love to see a Live Action Justice League movie some time in future
