Justice League: Mortal Concept Sketch
Post-Mad Max: Fury Road, a new generation of movie fans are realizing what a filmmaking genius George Miller is. To that end, there are now a bunch of articles following up on Miller's aborted Justice League 2008 movie, tentatively/horrendously titled Justice League: Mortal.
Supposedly, this is a character sketch of what Aquaman (who was to be played by Santiago Cabrera) would have looked like. If this is legit, it's interesting to consider how closely Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman concept of the Sea King ended up following Miller's: the ornate armor/shirtless combo, the long hair, and the overall getting away from Arthur's blonde, blue-eyed American visage.
This article on Den Of Geek gets into the details of the movie, and why ultimately it didn't happen. Another interesting thing to consider is, if this film had been made, Warner Bros./DC would have gotten their movie world building off the ground before Marvel!
