What?! This Casting Call Says George Miller is Working on Justice League Pt.1
When you're talking about a movie that assembles a whole load of some of the best known superheroes of all time, it doesn't take much to get us excited. While we've not even seen Batman v Superman yet, we're already keeping a firm eye on how things are progressing with Zack Snyder's Justice League Pt.1.

The importance of this movie to DC Comics fans was drilled home earlier this week, when Zack Snyder shared an image from the movie's UK base, featuring Easter Eggs galore and a ton of costumes for a few of the famous characters that are set to appear. This image already set our hearts racing, but now it seems that there is even more cause to be excited for this movie, because a new casting call has revealed that a big, big, BIG name is involved with the production.

The listing gives general details on the many potential casting calls for the movie, before then listing out the names involved in the production, which you can see below.

Yes, you did read that correctly. Second from bottom on that list is the name George Miller, which when it comes to Justice League movies, is pretty darn exciting. If your memory fails you, George Miller once came close to creating a Justice League movie back in 2008, but the production was shut down thanks to the writer's strike.

While a Producer's role on a movie can really mean a great deal of things, any input from Miller on a Justice League movie is enough to get us really excited. Miller is back in the spotlight right now, with Mad Max: Fury Road set to represent geek culture in a big way at this weekend's Oscars. But this is the first we're hearing of Miller's involvement with Justice League Pt.1 and while this casting call seems legit, we're keen to hear more on what capacity the Mad Max mastermind is working in for Warner Bros.

Finally, the casting call also appeared to give us confirmation that Amber Heard is indeed involved in Justice League Pt.1 and that she will, as expected, be playing Mera.

Gal Gadot – Diana Prince/Wonder Woman
