The world of DC films has evolved in an array of ways over the years, and George Miller's Justice League: Mortal fits into that in an interesting capacity. The film got midway through production before being stalled, and many have wondered what could have been with the star-studded project.

"It was just auditioning a lot of people." Sandberg continued. "It wasn’t something where I thought, 'Adam Brody! He’d be the perfect older Jack.' It was just looking at tons and tons of tapes, and also auditioning people in person until you just find the right one.
