HOW GE­ORGE MILLER’S 2009 JUS­TICE LEAGUE: MOR­TAL WOULD HAVE LOOKED

D.J. COTRONA WAS… SU­PER­MAN Cotrona is an Amer­i­can ac­tor who has gone on to star in the TV ver­sion of From Dusk Till Dawn as Seth Gecko, who was played in the film by Ge­orge Clooney, who once played Bat­man.

It’s all con­nected.

AR­MIE HAM­MER WAS… BAT­MAN Ham­mer was in his early twen­ties at the time and would have been the youngest big-screen Bat­man. He’s since gone on to star in the likes of The So­cial Net­work, Free Fire and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., along­side… Henry Cav­ill.

ME­GAN GALE WAS… WON­DER WOMAN Mor­tal would have been the first ma­jor film for Gale, an Aus­tralian model turned ac­tress. Miller clearly kept her in mind — she makes quite the im­pact as a Valkyrie in Mad Max: Fury Road.

COM­MON WAS… GREEN LAN­TERN The hip-hop star-turned-ac­tor would have played John Ste­wart, the first AfricanAmer­i­can Green Lan­tern, part of an in­ter­ga­lac­tic space corps who wield mag­i­cal rings.

SAN­TI­AGO CABR­ERA WAS… AQUA­MAN The only cast mem­ber with some su­per­hero busi­ness un­der his belt prior to be­ing cast, the Venezue­lan-bri­tish ac­tor had starred in He­roes as tor­tured artist Isaac Mendez. Like Mo­moa, his would have been a de­par­ture from the Aqua­man of the comics.

ADAM BRODY WAS… THE FLASH The star of The O.C. was prob­a­bly the big­gest name in the cast around 2008, and would have played Barry Allen.

AN­TON YELCHIN WAS… THE FLASH Miller’s Jus­tice League boasted more than one Flash, though, with the late An­ton Yelchin, who was just 19, pen­cilled in to play Wally West, bet­ter known as Kid Flash.
