'Superman' Battles 'Wonder Woman' In Justice League: Mortal Storyboard Art

1 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Following on from the announcement that a documentary about George Miller's cancelled Justice League: Mortal was in the works, we continue to get some very interesting "what if" pre-production teases. The latest comes from storyboard artist Steve Skroce, who posted the following samples of his work to his Facebook page. In the script, Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel) takes control of Superman's (D.J. Cotrona) mind and forces him to engage his team-mates in combat. This battle with Wonder Woman (Megan Gale) would have happened towards the end of the film, just before Batman (Armie Hammer) snaps Lord's neck! In the comics it's actually Wonder Woman who is forced to commit the murder... but there you go.   Here's what Skroce had to say about the artwork. "I'm seeing a lot of art from the cancelled George Miller Justice League film so here's a few boards that I did for the film. »

Check Out Concept Art From George Miller’s Cancelled Justice League Movie

1 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Mad Max: Fury Road reminding everybody of what a visionary director George Miller is, his now defunct Justice League: Mortal is in the public eye again, now as a subject of a proposed documentary chronicling it’s development and cancellation (very much in the same vein as The Death of Superman Lives, which shed light on Tim Burton’s Superman movie starring Nicolas Cage). Set for release in 2009, it was meant to be the beginning of new franchise featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of DC Comics’ pantheon of super heroes, completely separate from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight saga which was then just beginning. Filming was set for Miller’s native Australia, with Weta handling the special effects, and a good chunk of the cast had been found with Armie Hammer set to don Batman’s cowl, G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s D.J. Cotrona signed on as Superman, »

Superman takes on Wonder Woman in storyboard art from George Miller’s Justice League Mortal

1 June 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of a documentary following the development of the failed Justice League Mortal, we’ve started to see a lot more of what could have been. We’ve seen some concept art for Aquaman and Wonder Woman as well as a sculpture of Martian Manhunter and now we have a new set of storyboard art that sees the Man of Steel (D.J. Cotrona) take on Princess Diana of Themyscira (Megan Gale).

Check them out below:

So why is Superman fighting Wonder Woman? Well, in the movie The Last Son of Krypton would have had his mind taken over by Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel), which would have turned him against his team mates. However, it would have all ended up badly for Lord when Batman (Armie Hammer) steps in to snap his neck. Ouch.

Justice League Mortal was originally set to go into production in 2007 before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug. »
