For the love of Norse Gods, Idris Elba just got cast in Thor. Finally, he can use his native British accent for a role! (Assuming that Norse Gods will sound British, which is more than likely)

Jake Cassidy

'Thor' has already taken Aquaman (Chris Hemsworth) and Wonder Woman (Jaimie Alexander). Now they've got John Stewart.

Damn you Marvel. :cmad:

Sorry to bring up the dreaded Justice League movie, but can you imagine if those 3 were cast in it. I think a lot of us would've been much more excited about it. I always thought the casting was the biggest problem with that movie. I didn't mind the rest at all.

Octoberist
11-20-2009, 04:19 AM
i just didn't like the casting process of Justice League.

From what I've read, the casting director just took random actors (some from Friday Night Lights) and have them try out for multiple roles. Then the casting director would pick and choose. So if one guy didn't get Superman, he could get The Flash.

I just think that process is so jarring and thoughtless.

Jake Cassidy
11-20-2009, 04:23 AM
Not all of them. Mary Elizabeth Winstead was specifically brought in for Wonder Woman.

Octoberist
11-20-2009, 04:26 AM
yeah, you got her and I think Common. maybe Adam Brody.

But the rest were interchangeable.

Jake Cassidy
11-20-2009, 04:26 AM
Just imagine:

Chris Hemsworth - Aquaman
Jaimie Alexander - WW
Idris Elba - John Stewart
Scott Porter - Wally
Jon Hamm - Batman
Henry Cavill - Superman


:woot:

Octoberist
11-20-2009, 04:27 AM
i still don't understand why Henry Cavill can't catch a break. I'm hoping that his next leading role, Dawn of War (formally War of Gods) will make execs see that he's legit.

Jake Cassidy
11-20-2009, 04:27 AM

Oh Yeah. I forgot about Common.

Even after all this time, I still think MEW would be an amazing WW. :yay:

I was hoping he would be Hal, actually.

I still think he's the best choice for Superman. Have so for years. :yay:

Jake Cassidy
11-20-2009, 04:30 AM
I just had an even better idea (at least I think I did :woot:)

Henry Cavill - Superman
MEW - Lois

Octoberist
11-20-2009, 04:33 AM
If Henry doesn't get considered for Superman, I would lose my mind.

MEW as Lois would be wonderful, actually.

Too bad that the lawsuit going on is making it tough to make a Superman movie now...

Jake Cassidy
11-20-2009, 04:37 AM
What has Cavill been close to getting?

James Bond
Superman
Batman
Green Lantern

Are there anymore?

I really can't understand why he isn't getting roles like these. He's an amazing actor.

Octoberist
11-20-2009, 04:42 AM
with James Bond, he can still get. I mean, he's like my age so he has a chance later down the line.

The rest, I don't know. I don't know if the directors or studios 'don't get him' or what, but I think we're coming to an era in Hollywood where the star may be fading away. (Not to say that guys like Depp or Pitt mean anything. just saying that the Hollywood system has relied too much on the star and not on the projects.)

With that in mind, this means lesser known actors may get to headline mainstream movies. So guys like Cavill will get his chance. afterall, we need some new fresh faces now. No, I'm not talking about the male Gretchen Mol, Sam Worthington!

Jake Cassidy
11-20-2009, 04:43 AM
Hey. I like Worthington. He should've been the new Mad Max.

There's gonna be some new stars in the next couple of years.

Chris Hemsworth - Thor, Red Dawn

Taylot Kitsch - John Carter of Mars

I like both of them (and Cavill). Hopefully all three do well.

Octoberist
11-20-2009, 04:48 AM
pttf. more like Generic Max. Maybe I'm too hard on him but I don't see Chris Pine getting all these offers. But I don't blame Sam; he's making tons of cash right now.

(actually Max should have been Mel again. but I digress)

But it's a movie that will be made since it'll save your country's film industry, according to the trades!

Jake Cassidy
11-20-2009, 04:57 AM
If I was in Sam's shoes, I'd be doing the same thing. Fame doesn't last long these days, except for a select few.

I just can't believe Miller didn't get an Aussie to play Max.

On the bright side, Charlize Theron is in it. :woot:

Our film industry would be fine if we stopped making boring, depressing crap. We need to go back to the good old days. Mad Max, Crocodile Dundee, Razorback, Turkey Shoot, etc.

Our horror movies are doing pretty good, though.

Cavill Im hoping gets a chance to play Bruce Wayne and James Bond. Hes an actor Im really rooting for. Hopefully this Dawn of War turns out good, but I noticed in other places people are afraid of the similarities with Clash of the Titans

I dont get the appeal with Worthington, at first I was just like : "eh" but after all his over exposure I was like: ""F*** him", but now Im fine with him. Still do't get the huge appeal with him

Webhead2006
11-20-2009, 11:19 PM
it would be nice if he does get to have his names on an iconic role like bond, batman, or even superman. Though more likely then not bond is likely the one he could possibly get before batman or superman.

solidsnake86
11-22-2009, 12:28 PM
Thats a good question, he directed both bond movies but both times it was to reboot the franchise and he walked away after, they even begged him to come back. With Zorro the sequel took place years after. I think WB went to him to direct this movie and I see someone else coming in to direct the sequel.

Cavill, Glau and Pine are definitely wrong for those roles (Glau especially) but everything else is decent.


If they ever do another Superman of course, it wouldnt surprise me if none of these people even get screentests for it.

I'll let Blackman answer that one, to avoid saying the same stuff over and over.


Though on the flipside it would be interesting having a Hal Jordan Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds) that would dwarf Superman (Cavill).


But HC won't be in the running for Superman again anyway, so its a pointless argument.

For all we know she could end up being a friend character of jane foster, there was to be a few characters for that i believe.

remember when I found this a few weeks ago?


Could we have our Tom Kalumaku? :

I know that Native American actor Adam Beach (Flags of Our Fathers, Windtalkers, Joe Dirt) has been cast in the film, but I'm not sure for which role. Also not sure if that is supposed to be a secret (it is not on IMDB) so I am not putting my name on this post. I guess that I could also just refrain from mentioning that, but it seems if Ryan Reynolds has already been revealed, that supporting cast isn't too big a deal.

Not really a Sorbo fan, but in his defense some people said the same thing about Eric Roberts when he was cast in TDK, and I thought he did an okay job.

It all depends on which role he'd get cast as.
Martin Jordan
Abin Sur
Pipe
General Broome (Hammond's boss), etc.

I don't see Sorbo as Sinestro though, I'd like Weaving for that part.

protocida
12-03-2009, 03:08 PM
If Beach is playing Tom, that means they heavily modified the character. In the 1 draft, he's a geeky and over-the-top mid-20's computer programmer. Beach doesn't seem to fit that.

Or just watch the whole thing, he's pretty much perfect, maybe a bit older but I think he can play Kalmaku whatever direction they go in. And he seems to just naturally have the same temperament I'd imagine Tom having, he's got this part.

Octoberist

I've always figured that he was at first conceived as an Inuit Jimmy Olsen. But as time went by, his role got more important and he became less of a baffoon. I'm not saying it's as bad as The Spirit's African American sidekick Ebony (I'm convinced this is why The Spirit has never gotten the attention that it should get because of this one character) But it's still bad and I'm glad that Tom is a full fledged character now, instead of a goofball.

This Adam Beach fellow seems like a great fit for Tom. And I like how based on his demeaner, he's not going to be the butt of jookes like he was in the script. Which is great. Becauser the bad humor came from him. I hope he's a little more active then just spouting out humor.

I'm not the type to just call any and every actor bad but I just haven't liked him in anything I've seen him in.

That's probably why he's been struggling somewhat. It's obvious that it's hard being a Native American actor, but after Smoke Signas, he's been lost career wise.

Even being cast in Windtakers and Flags of Our Fathers, people still don't know him. Maybe there's a reason for that..I don't know. I wouldn't call him terrible though.

Octoberist
12-07-2009, 02:20 PM
I don't know if this will be a factor, but I think it will in later movies. Rachel, though she is hot and young looking, is 40. If she can still be youthful enough (and hot) in her 40s (like Mary Louis Paker), then go for it.

But I feel like Rachel has gone beyond conventional Hollywood movies. I can see her just doing dramas and indie movies from this point on. When she did The Mummy, her career was at a different place.

DannyDreg
12-07-2009, 03:40 PM
Well, it's like I said, it was just an idea. I had all those same concerns in mind when I mentioned her as well.

Actually, if Rachel Wiesz was going to be cast in a DC comics film, I'd like to see her portray Talia in a Nolanverse Bat-film

12-08-2009, 06:54 PM
I personally wouldn't mind a female lead in that age group. I think its generally tiresome when Hollywood so seldom casts women over like 25-30 in films. Rachel Wiez is a good actress and very attractive. But I still think they will cast someone who is younger. Hopefully a good likable actress.

MatthewZD
12-08-2009, 09:21 PM
Hadn't thought about Rachel Weisz as Carol. Years ago I pictured her as Wonder Woman. I hate to say it but I think the age factor would work against her. RR is in his early 30s playing a character most likely in his late 20s, so they'll go with about the same for Carol. That means someone like Rachel McAdams or Emily Blunt. As long as it isn't Britney Spears looking for a career change. :oldrazz:

Not much has been heard about the film since they cast Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern and the production was pulled out of Australia.

Well, I did my usual snooping around and I was able to nail down who the five candidates are for the role of CAROL FERRIS – Hal Jordan’s love interest in the film.

Per the script, Carol Ferris (27) is the daughter of aerospace mogul Carl Ferris. She works for her dad’s company FERRIS AIR, got an MBA, and has a lifetime crush on Hal Jordan.

According to my sources, the five candidates are:

1) James Bond heartbreaker EVA GREEN

2) The voice of DC’s animated WONDWER WOMAN film KERI RUSSELL

3) Helen of TROY’s DIANE KRUGER

4) Gossip girl’s BLAKE LIVELY

5) and JENNIFER GARNER

So who do you guys think will get the part? Tough call, but IN MY OPINION I personally think it’s between Diane Kruger and Keri Russell.

Both Kruger and Russell are the same age as Ryan Reynolds (33).

My personal favorite is Keri Russell. I think she killed it in Mission Impossible 3 but Hollywood is a town that runs on heat and Diane Kruger is coming off Inglorious Basterds and has become the new global spokesmodel for L’Oreal. If that is not heat then I don’t know what is.

I guess we will know soon enough as production on GREEN LANTERN is slated to begin next month.

What do you guys think? Chime in your thoughts below.

Merry Christmas and hasta el proximo capitulo…HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I'm rooting for Diane Kruger and Eva Green. Sorry, I'm not digging Jennifer Garner. I can't put my finger why I don't want her and it's not because of Daredevil..

i think personally campbell would end up going with diane or eva, and blake i would consider is who the studio would want. But if filming is due to start in jan, she is still shooting that CW show she does, so i dont really know if she would be free to shoot down in new orleans.

Keep in mind Reynolds was a studio pick.......


It really comes down to the Warners.

Webhead2006
12-21-2009, 05:33 PM
yea he ryan was probably a compromise for campbell but i think he is still a good pick. God would i have been pissed if they went with timberlake, cooper i would have been fine with also. But personally think eva/diane/keri would be better picks.

Man of Tomorrow

I would have preferred the Inglorious Bastards dude.. Michael Fassbender. He was in the running too and looks picture perfect like the comic Hal.

But I can live with Reynolds, as long as he plays it differently than his usual comedy roles.

Hal with a snarky fast talking high-pitched voice would be totally strange. But Ryan is definetely capable of changing his acting style from the norm, I've seen it.

Man of Tomorrow
12-21-2009, 07:12 PM
Yeah man. Hopefully that's what we get.

Even though the early drafts of the script painted Hal as an immature man-child, I'd still want Ryan to play him as more of an adult like in SA, as opposed to his boyish Wally West-like delivery in his other films.

I agree that Michael Fassbender would have been a better choice. I've often wonder IF the casting was made after the release of Inglourious Basterds, if he would be at least one of the top 3 candidates.

Blackman
12-22-2009, 02:58 AM
Oh please God no Common such a lackluster actor.
THe only thing he does fine is look cool and appear for less than 10 mins in a film.

I mean his line delivery in that one seen in Terminator Salvation. "LOOK AT IT IT'S BEAUTIFUL".

He wasnt even good at voice acting in the Wanted game and he was bad in a TV show I saw him guest star are.

Besides that he doesnt even look like JOhn much besides the JLU beard. When it comes to music (which I know alot of ppl on here hate rap music) Common is the man and is one of my favorites, but acting....not at all

I agree that Michael Fassbender would have been a better choice. I've often wonder IF the casting was made after the release of Inglourious Basterds, if he would be at least one of the top 3 candidates.
Probably not since his role is so small. Maybe around the time of 300. but I was watching him in Basterds and he reminded me of Superman for some reason

Man of Tomorrow
12-22-2009, 03:05 AM
He looks as much John that Ryan does as Hal. Not an exact match, but decent enough.

And John Stewart is such a secondary player... having someone like Common playing him fits well.

Not at all. John is not the biggest player but that doesnt mean he should be played by a below average actor

Octoberist
12-22-2009, 03:27 AM
the only movie i liked him in was in Smokin' Aces. Or at least, he had enough lines where he did fine. Seriously, he's been in so many movies like American Gangster, Wanted, and Terminator Sal, but he probably had less than 5 lines in each movie.

Man of Tomorrow
12-22-2009, 03:37 AM

I'm just being realistic. He seems the type of background actor they would throw into a role like that.

Octoberist
12-22-2009, 03:49 AM
I don't know. I've saw John Stewart as a guy who's authoritative but very soulful. Common can be soulful and shows warmth, as noted in Smokin' Aces, but he's kinda limited in every other department...so far.

I think you got the info from this crappy website. (http://www.**************.com/fansites/CookiepussProduction/news/?a=13114)

I don't blame you..I was fooled too but I think anybody can post an article if you register, plus are they telling me that this random fanboy writer KNOWS the TWO leading actresses who are competing for CAROL FERRIS? Is the writer implying that he has a better source than Latino Review. I seriously doubt it.

Also, I've notice a lot fo stupid sites are misleading people by posting "Blake Lively in Green Lantern film" as if it's legit and then in the actual article, states that she's in the running along with 4 other actresses.

There are soooo many bogus site out there.

Webhead2006
12-23-2009, 05:31 PM
yea **************.com is a nice looking site and all that, but i rather stick to the more reliable and trustly sites like SHH/moviehole/latinoreview/slashfilm/variety/hollywood reporter/etc.... ones. As for adam beach he is more then likely have gotten the role. We really havent heard of any one else for it. So he proably did get it.

I agree with how we havent had any casting confirmed yet its probably going to come out in one fail swoop. For the main/supporting players, then when we get closer to production-during production will probably hear x actor is in gl for x role.

no offense but thats a bad manip of BLake lively with brown hair.

and if she gets picked its going to be like Kate Bosworth in SR all over again. She will look so out of place because someone who can still pull off being a high schooler will try to be acting like an adult. Its not even like shes young but can pull off being alot older.
So I have to say definitely no to Lively. Maybe in a couple of years

Webhead2006
12-24-2009, 11:25 AM
yea as i said i have nothing against blake as an actor i dont know her work. But i think she is far to young at 21/22 yrs old for ryan's hal and all that. Plus i think they would go with a the more bankable actresses in eva green or diane kruger.

Blackman
12-24-2009, 11:28 AM
Green and Kruger I dont think are any more bankable then Lively. Out of the last suggestions I think Garner and Lively are the most bankable

Webhead2006
12-24-2009, 11:30 AM
why not, eva and diane have been in some big releases in past few yrs and blake is just a young chick in that gossip girl tv show. Sure its popular with some folks and all that. But i would think wb would go with someone a bit older and is likely to appeal to more crowds.

Blackman
12-24-2009, 11:36 AM
You basically said it yourself. Lively is on Gossip Girl which is one of the biggest shows for teens. Not only is she on Gossip Girl she is a Star on a popular TV show.
Green hasnt been in anything big since Casino Royale and GOlden Compass and I think Kruger has NAtional Treasure, Troy and Inglourious Basterds so I guess her bankability over Lively is debatable

And far as WB reaching for a larger audience Lively probaly has a pretty big audience. But shes probaly just like the Justin Timberlake suggestion

Mondragon

there is a lady who 'claims' that the movie will start production on Jan. 5. I e-maled her before and she has a friend working on the film but I think she's been misinterpreting the info.

I think Jan 5 is the start date for active pre-production; meaning they are building sets, etc.. Either way, if this is true, then maybe..we'll hear something as soon as next week.

Me too. My predictions are:
DIane Kruger as Carol
Mads Mikkelsen as Sinestro
Isaiah Washington as Hector Hammond

these just guesses no cred

Man of Tomorrow

Kruger is my top for Carol too. But she seems a strange pairing with Ryan Reynolds.


Then again, some of the strangest pairings have been the best. Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Having rewatched Casino Royale yesterday, I bet Eva Green will be Carol. She was basicly a british Carol in the movie, from the executive personality made up to make her seem more profissional, but that comes out as arrogance to some to the quirky banter with the fearless and impulsive hero.

Well, isn't DC announcing their plans on film this month? Could that have something to do with GL as well?

I'm starting to think this month we'll know alot more.

The most important thing is that they have actually cast people in the roles so although it would be nice to find out who they are the most important thing is that the film is going forward. As for Latino review, I'm sure they know, it's what wb is willing to do in order for them not to post the news such as giving them a set visit in exchange for example.

I still wasn't quite sold on Ryan Reynolds playing Hal Jordan until his cameo in Adventureland (or more precisely, this particular pic). That look screams Hal Jordan to me, and I pray that he keeps it in a similar style for the GL shoot. No hair gel or something too short.

I find that very interesting. Most of his work has been adaptations of published works (Contact, Peter Pan, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix). Maybe he had some ideas that both WB and Campbell liked for the rewrites going into filming.

I think the leaked script had a much younger Hector Hammond, (and I think I've said this before) but I would love to see Elias Koteas get some high profile work.

It better be. My confidence went down. If they cast somebody like Lively, who knows who they'll cast. As much as I didn't want Green for Carol, her being cast sn't so bad now. But damn, it's over, we can't change things.

I don't think I have ever been this mad about a casting decision.

protocida
01-09-2010, 12:54 PM
What's the problem? Lively is a good actress. I think she'll do great. Remember, there has been weider choices before (Heath Ledger, anyone?) and we all know how that turned out. :yay:

And I'm hoping for Karl Urban for Hector and Jason Isaacs for Sinestro. :woot:

Hector is 30s in the Script.

Doctor Jones
01-09-2010, 01:44 PM
Yeah, but given Lively.... who knows now?

There's a difference here. Ledger obviously wasn't a studio choice, Nolan picked him himself and therefore was the only person who could of played the role. And I fully supported Heath when he was cast. He's was a great actor from the beginning. It's just furthering that the studio doesn't have that much faith in their non Batman properties. If Campbell picked her, hey, I won't worry as much, but I think this was the studio's part. If Reynolds was, well, he's a good actor anyway. Though it just reminds me of the politics of film studios.

I guess I 'll have to watch Gossip Girl this one time. I can't believe I'm saying that.

And with her casting I'm not saying the production is doomed. It still has a great chance of being good. But right now, it's there's going to be faults, it's already possible beginning with Lively.

Webhead2006
01-09-2010, 07:22 PM
yea as i said when blake news broke i am a bit disapointed it didnt go to eva/diane/keri. But i hope she will do well with ryan and campbell's direction. As for rest of the cast i am sure they likely probably been set for awhile and the news is only officially getting revealed now. cause i am sure they wanted everyone awhile ago for training/costumes and all that pre production jazz. But i do hope we get solid hammond/sinestro casting. I will try to judge blake more once we actually have some footage of her as carol.

Jake Cassidy
01-09-2010, 09:32 PM
The article clearly states that Lively impressed Campbell and the producers. Why is it that people believe the Hemsworth/Thor story which says that Branagh picked him, but not this? It's the same thing.

Doctor Jones
01-09-2010, 09:45 PM
Where have we heard she impressed Campbell himself?

I trust Branagh because he's a freaking Shakesperean stage actor/director who knows acting when he spots it. And Marvel isn't intrusive.

I hope to God he said that. I know the studio wouldn't lie, I really hope not. I doubt it though.

So if he saw something, I'll put a little more fiath in it. But as of now, I'm still not convinced.

The next casting better make me damn excited or I won't be as excited for this film as I used to be.

what is the deal you are acting like they just casted lindey lohan in the role

you have not even seen her work most likely which is limited this is no different than hemsworth casting young unproven tv actors in a big role

both respectively beat out more experience seasoned actors they both separately must of shown something

If Lindsay Lohan was cast, then I would lose all hope for the film. I haven't lost all hope for the film, it's just with her cast now, my excitement for the film went down a bit. It sucks I have some doubt now for 17 months.

I haven't seen her in Gossip Girl, but I've watched her in interviews. And those are usually a good indication of how they'll be. Just their presence, not just their acting. How capable they'll be. And for God's sake, her age. She's too damn young. She doesn't strike me as a woman who can run an air force base at all. She sounds like a teenager. She's a convincing as Katie Holmes was and Kate Bosworth. The latter being too young and not right at all. Lois Lane is an assertive woman, Boswroth wasn't. She looked like a highschooler. Lively is the same.

I mean Jesus, if she told you what to do would you take her seriously?

Project862006
01-10-2010, 02:27 PM
she does'nt have to be 30 to run the base she was born around the business raised by her father he probably taught her everything she is taking over after he retired.
