George Miller No Longer Directing ‘Justice League’ Movie

The saga of the live-action “Justice League” movie seems to have hit yet another snag, as Australian filmmaker George Miller now appears to have severed any ties with the on-again, off-again project. According to Dark Horizons, Miller told a Sydney morning show earlier today that he is no longer involved in “Justice League” in any capacity.

Back in September, we heard from the film’s Batman actor, Armie Hammer, just a few weeks after news surfaced that Australian actress/model Megan Gale was cast as Wonder Woman. However, now it seems that casting might have played a role in the film’s troubles, as Miller reportedly told the show’s audience that if the film was ever going to be made, it would likely be recast because “the studios seem to want bigger stars in their superhero movies now.”

On a side note, the “Mad Max” director added that he would like to work with Mel Gibson again at some point — which could mean our hopes for a Martian Manhunter played by Gibson could be inching ever closer to becoming reality.

Are you disappointed about Miller’s departure? Do you think this film will ever be made? Sound off in the comment section!
