Justice League: Mortal (Unproduced, 2007/2008)

Image


In 2007, Warner Brothers were hot to produce a Justice League movie. There was a screenplay by Kieran and Michele Mulroney (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows; Paper Man) and director George Miller (the Mad Max film series, The Witches of Eastwick) was attached before the end of the year. At one point, motion capture technology was considered for the pricey prospect of a feature film involving so many powerful metahumans, but ultimately it was decided to stick with traditional live action at a budget of $220,000,000. The movie went into pre-production around the time the Writers Guild of America went on strike, and was halted when changes to the tax breaks once offered by production host country Australia would have shot the film's price tag much higher than expected. Despite the involvement of Weta in pre-production, fans seemed to vocally turn on the project, based on discomfort with the director, unofficially leaked casting selections and a general sense of the project being …

I first saw this piece in black and white a few years ago on Comics Alliance, but the color version is new to me. You can get a butt detail here. Diana also turns up in the background amidst this 2009 Justice League art.

I've previously noted that Ross didn't give Wonder Woman any action on his fan fiction crossover comic cover blog in 2010, and 2011 was fairly lean as well. Her appearances didn't really blow up until 2012, in part due to multiple dances with the same partner in a relatively short expanse of time. Forget Superman, Batman, or any other DC hero... the most perfect romantic super-union for Diana Prince in none other than Steve Rogers! The Super Soldier and Amazing Amazon are basically my two favorite heroes of all time, both pure of heart, unfailingly self-sacrificing, patriotically garbed, and my doesn't an unbreakable shield go well with bullets and bracelets. I want MOAR-- and there's already been two covers following this one! That's why I had to add the "#13," since Ross sequentially numbers his Super-Team Family Lost Issues, and I'd rather give each of these their own spotlight post instead of just creating a linklist of the lot…

“As soon as I found Brent's work I knew I had to have a piece. His brushwork can be so delicate and dynamic. There's also something Paul Pope-esque in his approach that I find very appealing. Wondy is 11x17.” I wanted to post something kind of scary for 6-6-13, although I think this is more icky than anything else. Brent McKee is a fantastic artist that I'd love to get art from-- but maybe not Wonder Woman art, as he gets a little pervy with the Amazing Amazon on "Saturday Post" (Swallowing Robin's banana). Plus, there's the whole Hell Yeah Superman + Wonder Woman stuff that makes me supersick. He offers one mean Martian Manhunter, though.

"This project started after the announcement of Disney buying Marvel comics and all the the fans started making Pixar / Avengers images. Well I was not terribly happy with the images that they were doing, so I tried to do better. ( Most of what I saw was recoloured images from "The Incredibles" movie screen grabs )

Mainly, this was just another way to better know Photoshop and I used the same rules as when I did those "Star Wars" posters. Just collected a lot of images using Google, cut and pasted them together, and this is what you get. I put them in a format that makes them look like those movie & comic trading cards I use to collect as a kid.

Hope you enjoy."
