Who knows what George Miller‘s scrapped Justice League Mortal would have looked like had it went into production. There are many different versions of why this strange superhero flick never happened, from financial difficulties to the writers’ strike, but the film would have seen one of the greatest superhero team ups facing off against a threat from Maxwell Lord, who would have been played by Jay Baruchel.

The actor recently revealed quite a bit of information surrounding the scrapped film, one of which would have seen Wonder Woman battle against a Minotaur and Superman. Check out what he had to say below.

Goon: Last of the Enforcers

One more treat for you this Thanksgiving. And it is something to truly be thankful for if you’re a hockey fan. I very much look forward to watching my Bruins later today!

2011’s Goon, starring Seann William Scott as someone who has a particular talent for fighting and ends up on a hockey team as their enforcer, was easily the best hockey comedy since 1977’s Slap Shot. A sequel to the movie is on the way, titled Goon: Last of the Enforcers, and the first trailer for the movie has been released online. William Scott returns to reprise his role in the sequel, and Jay Baruchel, who wrote, produced, and starred in the first, returns to write, star, and even direct this time around.

Be sure to continue below to check out the first trailer for Goon: Last of the Enforcers, along with a recently released poster.

RoboCop Remake Theatrical PosterRoboCop

Columbia Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 118 Minutes

“I’d buy that for a dollar!”

Directed by Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven, 1987’s RoboCop is a sci-fi satire that explores themes of greed, privatization, capitalism, dystopia, and identity. The film spawned two theatrical sequels, two animated series, and two live-action television series – not to mention comic books, video games, toys, and theme park rides.

Because the RoboCop franchise was popular and profitable in the ’80s, it was only a matter of time until Hollywood resurrected it. For an industry that rides a fine line between creativity and commerce, movie studios see remakes as a way to mitigate financial risk. Why take a chance on new ideas and original scripts when they can dust off a recognizable brand and put a “new spin” on it, appealing to the audience’s collective nostalgia for said brand? For studios, remakes operate on the simple principle that, even if it sucks, it will still make money.

And so here we are, in the year 2014, with a RoboCop remake by Brazilian director José Padilha, best known for the 2007 crime film Elite Squad and its sequel, 2010’s Elite Squad: The Enemy Within (the highest-grossing film in Brazilian history). The Elite Squad films are action-packed; filled with intense violence, police corruption, and political commentary, which is probably why MGM and Sony chose Padilha to direct in the first place.
