Here’s how Martian Manhunter could have looked in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal.
A new piece of fan art has surfaced online, showing a model of J’onn J’onzz, otherwise known as Martian Manhunter, as he could have appeared in Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller’s canceled Justice League: Mortal film.
Since it was canceled back in 2008, Justice League: Mortal has remained a perennial “what if?” in the minds of comic book fans and movie lovers. Had it been released successfully, presumably in the summer of 2009, DC’s film status would certainly be different from what it is now.
An Instagram user named spdrmnkyxxiii has revealed their take on how Martian Manhunter (who was to be played by Miller’s frequent collaborator Hugh Keays-Bearne) would have looked in the canceled film. Take a look below:
The design itself is….interesting. It’s not bad in the slightest, but it seems a bit blockier than what we’d expect from how the Martian Manhunter would look. Of course, fan art isn’t always perfect, but I do admire the attention given to his facial features.
What do you think of this design for Martian Manhunter? Would you have liked to see Justice League: Mortal come to fruition? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
While Justice League: Mortal was never made, a Justice League movie did eventually release and it was received horrifically. You can check out the some information on that movie and how to watch it below.
Directed by Zack Snyder, with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen and Julian Lewis Jones.
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.
Justice League is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray and DVD.
