A newly-surfaced photo from a documentary on George Miller’s Justice League Mortal offers fans a look at one of Armie Hammer’s Batman cowls.
Although many DC fans are still hoping to see a different version of the most recent Justice League film, a dedicated few are desperate to see footage and costumes from George Miller’s Justice League Mortal, a cancelled project from 2007. The film would have seen the team go up against Maxwell Lord, with the villain using their weaknesses against them after finding the detailed files Armie Hammer’s Batman kept on them, taking cues from the JLA: Tower of Babel comic book storyline. Thanks to a director of a documentary on the project, fans got a look at one of the Batman cowls from the film.
Earlier this week, Ryan Unicomb revealed the look at the cowl for Armie Hammer’s Batman on Instagram. It’s clearly an unfinished version of the costume and was created by Weta Workshop as an idea of what the Caped Crusader’s iconic design could’ve looked like on-screen. The director of the Justice League Mortal documentary explained that he wanted to cheer fans up with everything going on in the world at the moment. You can check out one of Armie Hammer’s Batman cowls from Justice League Mortal below.

Cotrona as Superman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord and Teresa Palmer as Talia Al Ghul. Late Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin was also on board as Wally West.
