JUSTICE LEAGUE MORTAL: Doc To Examine George Miller’s Scrapped Superhero Film

Justice League Mortal Will Examine the Pre-Production and Eventual Scrapping of George Miller‘s Justice League Project. Before Zack Snyder took over the proverbial reins to the entire tone and primary characters for DC, the director of Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller, was set to direct the Justice League ensemble film. It was eventually cancelled, as DC was till trying to find their footing and settling on a direction, tone, and story. Hopefully, they now know what they’re doing. For those of us who would’ve preferred a Miller entry to the DC Universe (and I’m not sure how you couldn’t at least be curious, after seeing Mad Max: Fury Road), there’s hope yet, in the form of a documentary.

Tentatively titled Miller’s Justice League Mortal, the documentary is being directed by Ryan Unicomb produced by Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell. 

According to Slashfilm,

Unicomb and his team already have investors on board, but may look to crowdfunding for additional help. “We wanted to get the story out there to help us to gauge interest,” said Unicomb. “I have always been fascinated with project, which would be in the same vein as 2013’s Jodorowsky’s Dune and this year’s The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

Miller’s Justice League joins a growing number of documentaries about unfinished feature films. Besides the two named above, there’s also Doomed!: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four.

It’ll be interesting to see all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into the preparation for this project. Miller had a very specific vision, I’m sure, and it’ll be great to at least envision what he had in mind by exploring the machinery he set in motion for this DC film. Alas, we are getting our first glimpse at the Justice League in Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, then in their own proper films in 2017 and 2019. Snyder is directing all three.
