Off in some alternate universe, on an alternate Earth, there was a Justice League movie from George Miller that starred Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and even Aquaman! Miller’s Justice League would have been radical and unlike anything Warner Bros. or DC ever imagined doing with these characters. And who knows? In that far off, alternate world it may have been a smash. Maybe there, it’s Marvel who’s floundering at the box office and struggling to create a cohesive universe for their cinematic heroes? Here though, that movie, and possibly the dream of ever seeing the Justice League on the big screen, died before it could even begin.
Though before it died there were costumes designed for each member of the League, including Batman. Hitfix‘s Drew McWeeny had a chance to see the concept of Batman’s costume for Miller’s JL, and during the recent press for The Lone Ranger, asked that film’s would be-Bruce Wayne, Armie Hammer, what he thought of it. And surprisingly, Hammer still sounds pretty excited about his batsuit that never was.
I don’t know, man, maybe a Justice League movie that’s more than anyone at Warner Bros. is comfortable with is what they need, y’know? Something fresh to ignite the franchise. Something that’s fun, not somber. Hell, I’d take a Batman in a mechanical, spring-loaded, armor suit over the magic knee brace from Nolan’s TDKR any day.
Do you wish Warner Bros. would attempt a Justice League movie like the one George Miller almost made? Or do you want to see Man of Steel’s universe expanded upon to include more heroes?
