You may remember way back in the late 2000s that there was a Justice League film in the works. This was before The Avengers had hit it big and essentially vindicated Marvel Studios’ existence, so the idea of building up to a huge team-up film was still a huge unknown. As such, a standalone team-up film was the only way to go, and in this case, it would be directed by George Miller, who went on to helm the amazing Mad Max: Fury Road.

One actor who was on board to act in the film as The Flash was The O.C. vet Adam Brody. Apparently though, when the movie was originally canceled, he wasn’t as disappointed as he should have been. 

“In hindsight, I should’ve been more bummed [at the time]. I really liked it. But I just kind of felt like, ‘No big deal. The next thing will come.’ And it kind of did, but it kind of didn’t. But nothing like that came along again.”

“The script was really good. It’s not that it was revolutionary, and I’m pretty objective about this kind of thing, and I think I have a pretty good gauge of scripts. I thought the casting was right. Not just me, but everyone, tonally, was going to fit right.”

Of course, like the others, he was excited to work with Miller, but Brody doesn’t think even the studio knew how talented Miller was.

“Then you see Mad Max: Fury Road and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, he’s as fresh as anyone. He’s ahead of the curve. So in hindsight it hurts more, actually. Like that would’ve been a classic movie after seeing what he did.”

Brody would only go on to return to the DC world in this year’s Shazam!, so it’s something that was a long time coming. Do you think Justice League: Mortal could have been a classic? Let us know your thoughts down below!
