Adam Brody Reveals Why Losing Flash Role in Justice League Mortal Hurt
Fans will never have the chance to see it, but Adam Brody was really close to portraying The Flash back in 2008. Brody was cast as Barry Allen in George Miller’s Justice League Mortal, but the project never saw the light of day. In a recent interview with Yahoo!, Brody had words of praise for the script and the casting.
“The script was really good,” Brody said. “It’s not that it was revolutionary, and I’m pretty objective about this kind of thing, and I think I have a pretty good gauge of scripts. I thought the casting was right. Not just me, but everyone, tonally, was going to fit right.”
Then Brody revealed that missing the chance to work with George Miller really hit him after he saw Mad Max: Fury Road.
“I was so excited to work with George Miller, because he was a legend, and he was very nice,” he added. “At the same time, nobody — I didn’t have any idea, I bet Warner Bros. didn’t have any idea — what a f***ing badass he still was. Because he hadn’t made a live action movie in like 15 years. He had made Babe 2 and Happy Feet. Yeah, he’s like the Australian Spielberg, but who knows? Then you see Mad Max: Fury Road and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, he’s as fresh as anyone. He’s ahead of the curve. So in hindsight it hurts more, actually. Like that would’ve been a classic movie after seeing what he did.”
