A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN
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.
