Megan Gale on Justice League Film

Thankfully, the George Miller-helmed JLA film to be filmed here in Australia is no more. Casting a bunch of unknown twenty somethings perhaps looked good on paper, but the chosen models and former TV stars didn’t display the kind of power that DC’s oldest superheroes demanded for their first big screen adventure. Plus, wouldn’t Warner Bros. ideally want an American behind the lens? I mean, with the news that Buffy and Serenity creator Joss Whedon is polishing Captain America’s screenplay, and directing The Avengers film, instead of Frenchman Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans) it makes sense that America gets somewhat patriotic and protective of their superhero teams.

Well, model/actress Megan Gale (now appearing in Aussie film I Love You Too) talks about her brief experience in the Wonder Woman role from a couple of years ago, in Perth’s The Sunday Times mag, STE. This is what she had to say:

“I was cast in a George Miller film to play Wonder Woman and that was potentially going to be a great stepping stone. Playing an iconic character in a Warner Bros. film with George Miller directing, you go maybe not straight to the top of the class, but a fair way up. And then when the project got shelved it was like, ahem, back to the bottom rung.”

When asked on any updates on the JLA film, Gale said, “It’s hibernating at the moment. There were so many reasons that film didn’t get made, but who knows, it may come to life again.” I usually don’t put film news on this blog, as there are so many other sites that do, but I figured this little tidbit in a weekend magazine in the world’s most isolated city may go unnoticed, so there.
