DC Films Hub shared a first look image of D.J. as Superman in the abandoned George Miller movie, Justice League: Mortal, back in 2007. The film would also have featured Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord.

The movie was scrapped in the beginning of 2008 due to the Writers Guild strike and other production issues. Back in 2015, D.J. spoke with /Film and recalled the film’s development and what it could have been.

The best way I can describe it is: George Miller’s mind is so operatic and big and expansive, it’s a shame that the world didn’t get to see what he would do with superheroes. It was allegorical, like a story of Greek Gods almost. He was doing things with the Superman character and Batman character, and all the iconic favorites, that’s never been done before. Watch Fury Road and you can only imagine what he would do with those iconic characters.

UPDATE: D.J. shared some clarifications regarding this on his Twitter account.
