George Miller's 'Justice League': Aquaman & Wonder Woman Concept Art Revealed

Justice League DC

It may be hard to believe, but it's true. The Justice League has lost before -  though not to the Injustice Gang or a legion of alien invaders. No, Earth's other mightiest heroes failed due to a more intangible threat in the world of cinema: production delay, a.k.a. Hollywood's kryptonite.

Before Zack Snyder helmed the mostly-successful Man of Steel, launching the DC Cinematic Universe - and even before John Favreau's Iron Man introduced Marvel's respectively domineering universe - Mad Max director George Miller had grand plans for Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and co. in a movie titled Justice League Mortal. The film was announced in 2007 and slated for a 2009 release date, with the cast and script both in place, but constant set-backs - including the 2007-2008 Writers Guild strike - doomed the project indefinitely.

We recently found out, though, that a documentary about Miller's abandoned film is in the works, with Ryan Unicomb confirmed as the director, and Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell behind production. The documentary will likely explore the reasons behind the project's failure, considering just how many pieces of the puzzle were already in place, while teasing fans with glimpses of what could have been.

That said, fans won't have to wait for the documentary's premiere to get a look at a few of these teases. Thanks to the project's official Twitter account, we have two pieces of concept art depicting Aquaman and Wonder Woman, respectively.
