Click to enlarge Mad Max: Fury Road may not exist if director George Miller had actually gotten his Justice League: Mortal movie off the ground. It was a project he began developing at Warner Bros. in the mid 2000s, but it ended up getting stuck in development mud during a writer's strike and never got the traction it needed to happen. On the one hand, it's a bummer because a Justice League movie from George Miller would be something to behold. On the other, it's a relief that Warner Bros. didn't just shove the movie forward with a weak script and a cheapened budget. Plus, had it been a big hit and started a new franchise, Miller may never gotten around to making Fury Road. The movie did progress far enough in development that it was fully cast. D.J. Cotrona as...

It will only take 75 years for Wonder Woman get her debut on the silver screen. In 2016, Gal Gadot will star(?) alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” But before Zack Snyder, before “Man of Steel,” and before interconnected cinematic universes…there was George Miller. Back in 2007, the “Mad Max” director was at on time on track to deliver DC’s superheroes in “Justice League Mortals” in 2009. However, production was crippled by the Writer’s Strike and the project never recovered. Miller moved on to “Fury Road” and the rest is cinematic history. Had it come to passed, “Justice League Mortals” would’ve starred Armie Hammer (Batman), D.J. Cotrona (Superman), Common (Green Lantern), Adam Brody (Flash), Santiago Cabrera (Aquaman), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Martian Manhunter), Jay Baruchel (Maxwell Lord), and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman). If you recognize Wonder Woman’s actress, it’s because she recently turned »

With the "Wonder Woman" solo movie having begun production, an earlier and ultimately discarded incarnation of the character has seen the light of day today.
Photographer Mark Rogers has used his social media accounts to share a couple of shots of supermodel Megan Gale in costume as Wonder Woman in George Miller's cancelled "Justice League Mortal" project from back in 2007 & 2008.
The look certainly differs from that Gal Gadot is seen sporting in next year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Boasting a brighter blue cloth skirt, more accurate headpiece and quite different leather corset - it's a distinctly different take.
Gale, who also starred in this year's "Mad Max: Fury Road" as the Valkyrie, was to star in the film alongside Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as the Flash, Common as the Green Lantern, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, »

Thanks to a planned documentary about the cancelled film, there's been a renewed interest in George Miller's Justice League Mortal, which would have starred Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord.

Justice League: Mortal is a well documented film-that-never-was. Filming was set to begin in early 2008 in Australia for a 2009 release date, however, Warner Bros. pulled the plug on the eve of filming. The film starred Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord. Today, production photos from the project have made their way online after roughly seven years, giving us our first look at Megan Gale's Wonder Woman. Of course, these days, everyone is well aware that Gal Gadot will be portraying Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before making her solo-feature debut in 2017. Here's a look at the two costumes side-by-side. Which do you prefer? »
Before he reinvented Mad Max for a new generation with Fury Road, director George Miller was planning on bringing DC’s finest to the big screen for the first time with the now defunct Justice League: Mortal. Various events such as production location issues and the writer’s strike ultimately derailed the project, but not before Miller and his team were fairly deep into the thick of it.
The cast would have included the likes of Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) as Batman, Adam Brody (The O.C.) as The Flash, D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Superman and Megan Gale (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Wonder Woman, and most of them actually got to see themselves in costume as their characters – though we never have, until now.

Justice League Mortal was originally set to go into production in 2007 before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug. The cast of the film would have included Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) as Batman, D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Superman, Megan Gale (Stealth) as Wonder Woman, »

The story is already part of superhero movie lore, but in case you missed it, here's the short version. Gearing up to film in 2008, George Miller's "Justice League Mortal" was eventually scrapped due to complications from the writer's strike and a budget that wound up soaring when tax breaks couldn't be secured in Australia. The cast would've included Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as The Flash, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, but alas none of it came to pass. However, Michael Angarano reveals was in the mix for the movie at one point, but his ego got in the way. "I’ve auditioned for a couple [of superhero movies] in my life. I screen-tested, or came very close, for '[The Amazing] Spider-Man,' the Andrew Garfield one. There was another one when I was really young. I auditioned for 'Justice League' and I got called »

Cotrona. “So going into Season 2, we’re seeing new partnerships.” Also read: 'From Dusk Till Dawn's' Danny Trejo Describes The Regulator as a. »

It’s often a natural reaction for people to want to work with, and honor, the people they admire the most in their lives. But they don’t always want to embrace that dedication, or too heavily emulate their idols, either out of respect for their values, or their sudden disappointment in their recent decisions and actions. That’s one of the most intriguing and alluring aspects of the current 10-episode second season of the horror action crime show, ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.’ Actors D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz play brothers Seth and Richie Grecko on the show, during which the characters remain loyal to each other out of respect for [ Read More ]

Season two of the show expands the universe across two borders from Mexico to Texas, and deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds – Santánico (Eiza González) and Richie (Zane Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Kate (Madison Davenport) are scraping by in the South of the Border; Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb: and Carlos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama) and Scott Fuller (Brandon Soo-Hoo) emerge from the Titty Twister, as changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat. »

Last year, we saw the debut of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which brought the Tarantino-penned/Robert Rodriguez-directed film to the small screen, in a very different approach. It was quite the interesting series, taking turns that were very unexpected and different than the film, which set the TV series on its own path. Now with the August 25th premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Season Two set to make its debut, Austin TX mayor Steve Adler has made August 25th “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”, in a celebration held at Troublemaker studios.
Rodriguez had the following to say: “Austin is my home and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that From Dusk till Dawn is Austin made and that we can celebrate this day with the community. »

A little less than a decade ago, George Miller was within a hair’s breadth of directing a DC Comics movie — “Justice League Mortal,” a big budget take on Superman, Batman, et al. In 2007, Miller got as far as building sets in Australia, and cast all the major roles, with D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as Green Lantern, and Jay Baruchel as the villain, Maxwell Lord. The movie was cancelled shortly before production got underway due to various factors, but it appears that fresh from “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Miller might be getting another chance to make his superhero movie. John Schnepp, the director of “The Death Of Superman Lives” (a documentary about Tim Burton’s earlier unmade DC Comics movie) was a guest on the DC Movie News Show (via Latino Review), and states that »
