George Miller Officially Off Justice League Movie - Phew!
At this point this news is no longer new, but it's worth mentioning again just to hammer it home. Dark Horizons has confirmed that George Miller is no longer attached to Justice League in any capacity. Miller appeared on a morning talk show in Australia and confirmed that he's no longer involved (which IESB first mentioned in August), adding that if it ever gets greenlit again, it'll be recast, because "the studios seem to want bigger stars in their superhero movies now." Really?! I never would've guessed! The only movies George Miller should be directing are sequels to Happy Feet or Mad Max - and that's it!
The funny thing is that Miller can't even get his own star, Mel Gibson, to agree to do another Mad Max! "Miller also admits that he'd like to work with Mel Gibson on something again and while Mel doesn't want to do the Mad Max script he wrote, he hasn't given up on that possibility just yet." I'm not sure what you thought, but Happy Feet wasn't actually that great of a movie, and it has become increasingly apparent that Miller is to blame. Over the last year, since he was announced as the director of Justice League, I've grown to dislike him and his idiotic casting choices - and I couldn't be happier that he's no longer involved!
