A TOUCHING CAST PHOTO FROM THE JUSTICE LEAGUE MOVIE THAT NEVER WAS
Greg Van Borssum, a stuntman on the upcoming Mad Max reboot Fury Road, posted a photo to his Facebook page last month that offers a previously unseen glimpse of the cast and crew of the never-made 2008 Justice League movie.
Justice League: Mortal was meant to film in 2008 under George Miller, co-writer and director of the Mad Max franchise, including Fury Road. Justice League: Mortal never began filming, possibly because of the Writers Guild Strike of 2007-2008, but the photo reveals that Miller at least got as far as bringing his cast together.
Justice League: Mortal would have starred Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Teresa Palmer as Talia Al Ghul, Zoe Kasan as Iris Allen, and Jay Baruchel as the villain of the piece, Maxwell Lord.

HERE’S THE ‘TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES’ ‘BROTHERS’ TV SPOT
The newest TV spot for the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ movie has debuted, offering a brief, but revealing look at the characters in the film.
The TV spot, uploaded by IGN, may only last for 30 seconds, but we’re shown quick snippets of new characters that haven’t been seen in the first live action trailer for the Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed movie, which lasted for about a minute more.
If you’ve got keen eyes and fast reflexes, you can pause during the TV spot to catch glimpses of Master Splinter brandishing a katana and Will Arnett‘s Vernon Fenwick clutching a shocked April O’Neil, played by Megan Fox.
CAPTAIN AMERICA’S ‘THE WINTER SOLDIER’ TO-DO LIST IS DIFFERENT AROUND THE WORLD
Disney has long been known for how meticulously it localizes its movies for countries all around the world (for proof, here’s a video of Frozen‘s “Let It Go” in 25 languages).
Apparently, the company has applied that approach to its Marvel Studios output. Reddit user DavinderB has tracked down 10 different screenshots of Captain America’s list of things he needs to learn about to catch up to the 21st Century in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and depending on the country where the movie’s being shown, the list is different.
‘THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2′ TRAILER GETS HOMEMADE MOVIES MAKEOVER
So you remember Be Kind Rewind, where Jack Black and Mos Def made homemade versions of popular movies like RoboCop, a sentence that sounds like the rantings of a madman until you remember that it’s an actual movie? Well, it seems that the fine folks over at CineFix’s Homemade Movies have taken a page out of that book, only they’re doing it one better.
Using costumes, action figures and a whole lot of cardboard, Homemade Movies has done a pretty incredible shot-for-shot recreation of the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
MAN AT ARMS RECREATES BLADE’S VAMPIRE-KILLING GLAIVE
With the exception of Wesley Snipes, David S. Goyer and Sticky Fingaz from Onyx, I’m willing to bet that I have spent more time thinking about the Blade movie franchise than any man alive. I mean, just that vertical suplex at the end of Blade II alone has taken up a considerable percentage of my thoughts over the past 12 years. And yet, it never occurred to me to request that Man At Arms, the series of videos featuring master swordsmith Tony Swatton re-creating famous pop culture weapons that was last seen building a real-life Pokémon, take a shot at Blade’s glaives.
Fortunately for everyone who enjoys seeing fictional weapons stabbing real-life soda bottles, several other people took the initiative on that one, and the result is that the world now has three brand-new razor-sharp vampire killin’ weapons
