Earlier this year, actress Megan Gale had a supporting role as the Valkyrie in director George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. But in 2007, Gale was almost the first woman to portray Wonder Woman on the big screen.
Miller’s Justice League: Mortal was so far along in the development process that most of the major roles had been filled when the project was canceled. Gale was signed to play Wonder Woman opposite D.J. Cotrona’s Superman and Armie Hammer’s Batman. Common and Adam Brody were also part of the cast, as Green Lantern and the Flash, respectively.
Photographer Marc Rogers has posted two test photos of Gale in costume as Wonder Woman from Justice League: Mortal, and she certainly had the right look for the part.
The photos were taken at Kennedy Miller, an Australian production company. The costume worn by Gale appears to have more prominent red and blue colors than the costume that Gal Godot is wearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the upcoming Wonder Woman solo movie. Gale’s Wonder Woman costume isn’t an exact replica of the character’s comic book outfit, but overall, it’s pretty faithful.
Justice League: Mortal had also lined up Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, the League’s primary adversary in the film, with Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul. The film came very close to actually happening, but the 2007 Writers Guild strike disrupted the planned production and it was eventually canceled altogether.
