Martian Manhunter Cast in ‘Justice League’ Film
If Warner Bros. decides to move Justice League out of Australia, a few friends from down under will be tagging along for the ride.
Director George Miller has cast Hugh Keays-Byrne in the role of the Martian Manhunter. Byrne is known primarily for his work in Australian film and television.
Miller first worked with Byrne a scant 29 years ago on the original Mad Max , which was released in 1979.
Byrne played Toecutter, the main villain of the film responsible for murdering Max’s family and turning him into the post-apocalyptic vigilante we all know and love. Now he’s playing a Martian superhero. The two characters actually share a common bond – a fear of exploding cars and fires – making it easy for Byrne to step into J’onn J’onzz’s green skin and blue underwear.
