Default Re: A Spider-Woman film?

I'll continue with my multiple casting, tell me what you guys think of em. Next up it's Julia Carpenter, played by...

Michelle Ryan (I've seen her cast as Jessica Drew and it certainly makes sense, but if Kate Beckinsale plays Drew than I think Michelle would make for an awesome Spider-Woman II/Arachne)

Gina Carano (while Carpenter is popularly depicted as lithe, her physicality has always been more graceful while at the same time being rough. Carano can pull both off really well. It'd be a different way to view the character but I think it'd be really fun)

and now for the unpopular selection: Christy Carlson Romano (hear me out on this one; not only is Romano a promising actress, she would be an unconventional choice for the role, the voice-actress for Kim Possible has proven that she can play tough and handle an action role and while her most popular show as been next to Shia LaBeouf in Disney's Even Stevens, she's come a long way since her dorky days as studious Ren. I think it'd be fun to see how she handles being Spider-Woman)

I know that none of these actresses are cherry-blonde but I don't think hair-colour is really an issue at all during casting.


THE JUSTICE BULLETIN published some of my thematic analysis on the symbolism in Nolan's superhero saga.
I call it Heroic Archetypes. You can read the parts on Batman Begins in the following links:
