Jay Baruchel revealed a cool new detail about Superman’s suit while reminiscing about his time on George Miller’s scrapped Justice League: Mortal movie.
It’s well known that a Justice League movie from George Miller almost became a reality back in 2008 until Warner Bros. decided to scrap the project. Since then, many stories and images have been revealed and have shown fans what Justice League: Mortal could have been.
The Justice League: Mortal version of Superman was going to be played by D.J. Cotrona, who got his chance to play a superhero in Shazam! as an older Pedro Peńa. Jay Baruchel was also set to appear in Justice League: Mortal, playing the villainous Maxwell Lord. While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Baruchel talked in-detail about the cool Superman costume that was going to be worn by Cotorna in the film before it was canceled:
“The Superman costume from that movie is still my favorite ever. Everyone there was so psyched about it. People would geek out as they were showing you. They’d be showing you the Superman outfit (and saying) ‘If you look close, the entire thing is covered in Kryptonian writing.'”
The idea of Kryptonian language on Superman’s suit would eventually be used with the costume Henry Cavill has worn in the DC Extended Universe. Now that we are getting a full-on DC cinematic multiverse, would you like to see George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal revived? Let us know in the comments!
The Justice League was most recently seen in Zack Snyder’s 2017 superhero team-up movie. Here’s the official synopsis for it:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
