    Default Your Favorite Live Action Representation of a DC Character in Other Media

    I asked a version of this question previously. What is your favorite live action representation of a DC character in other media? Just movies & TV--no animation, video games, or even radio.

    Off the top of my head, Christopher Reeve as Superman. He was cast perfectly. Margot Kidder was also an excellent Lois, but I think Terry Hatcher may have been even better, at least in the first couple seasons of Lois and Clark. She started to look a little strange to me as the show went into the later episodes. Like she had gotten too thin and I recall her having hairstyles I thought were unapealing.

    Danny Devito as the Penguin:



    I feel like his portrayal of The Penguin often gets overlooked; but he really nailed the character and made him both frightening and humorous IMO.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    Chris Pine is so cute as Steve.

    I love how all the Amazons look in DCEU.

    Christopher Reeve has the perfect face for Superman. Like, I want Henry Cavill's body and Reeve's face, that's my perfect Superman XD

    Alfred... I think Michael Gough defines his look for me, but I like Michael Caine's performance more, well, he has more screen time. Gosh, all the Alfreds are so good.

    Christopher Reeve as Superman is the obvious one. He embodied Superman.

    Both Lynda and Gal were/are perfect as Wonder Woman for their respective times.

    It's pretty awesome of Chris Pine to take up the role of Steve. I thought he wouldn't want anything less than a lead superhero role as he fronted the Trek franchise.

    Excited for Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz as Bat and Cat.

    Everyone is saying Christopher Reeve as Superman. But I have to be honest that movie bored me to death.

    But I do love Grant Gustin as Flash. He does such a great job with this role.

    I cant pick a favorite Batman because each one brought something different to the roles they played. I would say overall it would have to be Micheal Keaton.

    I really love Heath Ledger as Joker.

    Mark Hamill as Trickster. he did a great job every time he played that role.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Pull List - Lois Lane, Amazing Mary Jane, Black Cat, Doctor Doom, Gwen Stacy, Jane Foster Valkyrie, Morbius Savage Avengers, Strike Force, Something Is Killing The Children

    As much as I like Grant Gustin, John Wesley Shipp is still my favourite actor to play Barry Allen.

    Batman - Ben Affleck. Great portrayal, not so great movies. Close second is of course Michael Keaton.
    Alfred - Michael Gough. No one else better nailed the father figure aspect of the character in my opinion.
    Commissioner Gordon - Gary Oldman. Well obviously.

    Superman - George Reeves. Christopher Reeve will always be the icon, but there's something a bit more down to earth and rough and tumble about Reeves portrayal I just love.
    Lois Lane - Margot Kidder. She's so likable! But then so is Terri Hatcher and Phyllis Coates...
    Lex Luthor - Jon Cryer. Not my favorite or preferred version of Lex, but easily the best Lex in live action by a country mile.

    Wonder Woman - Can't choose, Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot are both perfect.
