Almost a decade ago, "Mad Max" director George Miller famously tried to do a DC team-up movie entitled "Justice League Mortal" which got as far as costume testing before the plug was pulled due to financing issues. A few years back the film's script, penned by Kieran and Michele Mulroney, hit the Internet to mixed reviews which indicated that it was overstuffed and rushed.
Now, a video has gone online from an event this past weekend at the Comic Bug comics store in Manhattan Beach, California. Clocking in at almost two-and-a-half hours, the clip shows a live reading of the script by various actors including Casper Van Dien ("Starship Troopers") in the role of Clark Kent/Superman. We'll never know what was in store.
