Adam Brody reflects on how he learned that George Miller’s planned DC Comics film Justice League: Mortal film got canceled.
While promoting his new film Ready or Not, Adam Brody revealed that the way he found out about the cancellation of George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal was pretty abrupt. Adam Brody explained how he found out in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
You can read Adam Brody’s comments regarding how he learned of the demise of George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal down below:
“It was much more of a fadeout. We were there for a couple weeks; I think D.J. and Armie [Hammer] were there longer, but most of us were just there for two weeks before Christmas. The idea was, even before we went, we were gonna go for two weeks before Christmas; we’ll all go back for Christmas break and then we’ll come out two or three weeks later. So, we did, but you could tell the writers’ strike was happening, you could tell that they lost the Australian tax credit, even though creatively, it felt really good. You could tell business-wise that something was up. We were all gonna go home for Christmas and then come back in two to three weeks… very soonish… and then it just didn’t happen. But, yeah, it wasn’t like we got a pink slip.”
Despite the fact that he still imagines how George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal would’ve turned out, Adam Brody reveals that he wasn’t too bitter over the film’s cancellation:
“I wasn’t crushed. I very much took it in stride. I also got the part fairly smoothly. So, it didn’t feel like I got this big lottery ticket. I waltzed into it, and I waltzed out of it.”
Adam Brody was cast as The Flash in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal before Warner Bros. pulled the plug on the film.
Although Adam Brody was unable to play The Flash, he still ended up joining the DC Extended Universe in Shazam! earlier this year. The actor played the grown-up superhero version of Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer). Just imagine a scene in the future where Adam Brody’s Freddy Freeman ends up sharing the screen with Ezra Miller’s Flash?
