Some thought that the Justice League movie was placed back in development hell after attempts to film in Australia didn’t work out. However, director George Miller recently spoke to the Herald Sun about how good Megan Gale’s audition as Wonder Woman was, and that filming would be taking place next year.
The Aussie Oscar-winner said the glamazon “blitzed her opposition” when she read for the part of Wonder Woman in the sci-fi production.
“She got the job because she blitzed her screen test. I mean, I had no idea she was so good,” Miller said.
“She walked into our office in Sydney and read the part. She has done some Italian movies, but I didn’t think she would be as good as she was.
“But once she read we all looked around at each other and said, ‘Well, there’s no question’.”
Initially slated to be filmed Down Under, Miller conceded production had been moved offshore, with a plan to resume filming next year.
It seems DC want to rival Marvel in the movie department, with Marvel working their way towards an Avengers movie. A few script reviews for the Justice League movie have been rather negative, so maybe George Miller and friends will be able to improve it before filming begins at some point next year.
