Jay Baruchel Talks about the JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie That Could Have Been

It doesn't seem like that long ago when director George Miller was prepping up production for Warner Bros. Justice League movie. We'll never really know what we could have witnessed, but there are people out there that can tell us the stories of what they saw, and what could have been. Jay Baruchel was cast in the film along with Armie Hammer (Batman), D.J. Catrona (Superman), Adam Brody (The Flash) and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman) before the production got shut down. 

Baruchel recently sat down with Digital Spy for a little interview, and here are a few things he had to say:

Do you think it would have won around the blogosphere?

I'll just say this, if we had been able to make the movie that we had gone down [to Australia] to rehearse, if you had seen the production art I'd seen... it would've been the coolest thing ever. It would have been the neatest vision of Batman and the coolest vision of Superman you've ever seen. It would have been dark and fairly brutal and quite gory and just f**king epic.

What was the problem?

The problem was that, had it gone to production, it would have been the single most expensive movie in the history of movies. Sometimes people are reticent to spend upwards of $300 million. It was a fun two weeks in Sydney and I got to hang out with one of my idols, George Miller.

Did you get as far as seeing the Justice League heroes in costume?

I did. My friends, who were training to be Batman and Superman, they were down there for three months training and going to Weta in New Zealand to get their costumes. Weta, which is arguably the greatest special effects house on Earth, they had to cancel everything else. They were doing nothing but our movie. It was going to be f**king dope!"
