    Default Who is your ideal cast for any DC Comics media adaptation?

    I think Zack Snyder did a pretty good job of casting Batman and Superman. But honestly, as much as she's stolen America's heart, Gal Gadot wouldn't be my choice for Wonder Woman. I would've gone with Caitriona Balfe from Outlander.

    As for Barry Allen, I hardly think the film could've been more off the mark. Strangely enough, I feel the best choice for the role is actually Rick Cosnett, who was on the Flash TV show as Eddie Thawne. I think that guy just IS Barry Allen from the comics!

    For Aquaman, I think the person who most resembles the comic is Alexander Skarsgaard, by far.

    Honestly, some of these drive me crazy because I wish so much I knew how to photoshop. I'd be all over them!





    How about anyone else?

    With Hal Jordan, I'm really picky. Ryan Reynold was good enough, but for an ideal, I've never really been at peace with anyone. No one really matches the square jaw with the right voice and attitude. The closest I can come up with is this little-known actor named Jack Turner, who I noticed when he played J.R.R. Tolkien on Legends of Tomorrow.

    Affleck was horrible as Batman, to me. he seemed genuinely uninterested in being there. the got Diana right, though. and Momoa is about as interesting casting pick as they could make. I don't think that Aquaman will do well. but I can say with certainty that just casting a blonde haired pretty boy wouldn't have gotten the job done. Aquaman is already an awful sales pitch. exotic underwater conan is a slightly better pitch.

    David Mazouz as young Bruce Wayne is the only one I'm completely satisfied right now.
    If we're talking all-time favorite, Michael Gough as Alfred.
    Tumblr keeps pushing Armie Hammer as Hal Jordan and I agree.

    Keep everyone as is. Find an unknown Arabic actor to play Simon Baz, an unknown young Hispanic actress and have a Tom Cruise Hal Jordan to train them both. A Zac Efron as an older NW would work well.

    So true and really weird, isn't it?

    Honestly, if he hadn't been cast as an interesting looking Aquaman, I would have had Jason Mamoa cast as Lobo. The guy is huge, muscular, and plays a wild-guy already. And with his dreadlocks, he looks even more the part.

    This is generally not much of an issue when casting a character. Appearances can be altered, talent and chemistry cannot. Rick Cosnett for instance was a great Eddie Thawne, but he's just not leading man material, no matter how much he looks like a drawing of Barry Allen.

    Dennis Quaid is too old now, but he was always the perfect Hal Jordan. Now I'm hoping for James Marsden. (especially if they want a "seasoned" HJ)

    Brendan Frasier would have been a good Capt Marvel (Shazam) back in the day.

    It's not a stretch, but Angelina Jolie as Catwoman? Yes, that probably could have been amazing given a decent script.

    Johnny Depp as Shade the Changing Man.

    Sometime between "Citizen Kane" and those wine commercials, Orson Wells would have been a great Miles Caulder.

    I think if there's ever another live action Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle, Diego Tinoco from On My Block or Marcel Ruiz from One Day at a Time would be good choices.

    I've always heard his voice when Cliff spoke, but perhaps it's because his general face structure reminds me of Hellboy. Either way, I support this casting wholeheartedly.
