Check out a lost cinematic Wonder Woman… and some new images of the next one
Aussie model-actress Megan Gale was slated to play the hero in the scrapped Justice League movie from 'Mad Max' director George Miller.
Earlier this year, Australian director George Miller (Mad Max, Babe: Pig in the City) wowed audiences with his thrilling comeback Mad Max: Fury Road. In it, model-actress Megan Gale, another Aussie, appears as The Valkyrie. She's tough and cool, yet the brunette was slated to work with Miller on an even bigger superheroine in 2007.
Gale was cast as Wonder Woman in Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That big-screen team-up never came to fruition, due in no small part to the Hollywood Writers Strike. While audiences will never see that movie, we have now been treated to a glance at its Wonder Woman, thanks to photographer Mark Rogers. As reported by the cinema gossip site JoBlo, these images depict Gale as the Amazonian warrior.
