With everything that's happening—and probably happening—behind the scenes for Justice League and the remaining DC films, it's hard not to reminisce about could-have-been projects from the franchise.
One of these was the scrapped Justice League Mortal movie from 2009, which was slated to have George Miller as the director. John Wick 2 and Suicide Squad actor Common had talked to Yahoo! Movies about the abandoned project, as he was slated to have a role in the movie. And from what he had seen, it could have been the great project they wanted.
Common shared that he had already done rehearsals, potential on-site scouting, and fitting for what could be the costume of Green Lantern in the movie. But perhaps most important of all was the fact that the script may have been one of the keepers in the ever-changing landscape of DC films.
"The script was super-dope. It was intricate. And knowing George Miller was going to do it, you knew it was going to have that raw edge. But it had Superman, Aquaman, it had all of the characters really involved. Each one of them had moments and you got to know them. It was a strong piece."
When asked if he was still interested in playing the role of Green Lantern, he had said yes enthusiastically. Although at this point, he is also grounded in that the decisions are all up to the studio.
While we're still waiting if that Green Lantern movie will ever happen—because let's not count Ryan Reynolds' anymore, right?—Zack Snyder's Justice League will be out in theaters on Nov. 16.
