Default The Dark Knight Returns Live Action Casting

If The Dark Knight Returns was ever made into a live action movie, this would be a cool cast:

Sean Bean as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Peter O'Toole as Alfred
ChloŽ Grace Moretz as Carrie Kelly/Robin
John Hurt as Comissioner James Gordon
Cate Blanchett as Ellen Yindel
Neal McDonoughas Harvey Dent
Vincent Cassel as The Joker
Eddie Cibrian as Superman
Anthony Geary as Oliver Queen

Bruce Campbell as Superman LMAO id pay a LOT of money to see that.

Russell and Elliott are great choices. If you were doing it now. If it's in 10 years or so, Jon Hamm will be perfect. An easy transition (from the animated movie) would be to cast Michael Emerson for the Joker. Since it's an older and slightly different Joker.

CrypticName i love your cast, especially Kurt Russell and Sam Elliot. Willem Dafoe is a great choice but Id replace him with David Bowie.

Bruce Campbell as Superman... i love Campbell but just no to that idea. Maybe Jon Hamm?

And since Michael Emerson is an awesome actor. I always thought he'd be a great Mad Hatter.

He could play Mad Hatter or Riddler extremely well. The guy is awesome, someone please hire him for something Batman live-action related.

I'd give my right arm to see Superman say to Lois
"Give me some sugar, baby"

"The world is safe again, Superman. Thanks to you"
"Groovy"

Love that cast! I've wanted Campbell for a superhero for awhile, he'd be an excellent Superman if he got in better shape.

Chloe Moretz as Carrie Kelly would be fantastic.

I actually thought about Jon Hamm but I settled on Campbell because in my eye he just looks like an aged Silver Age Superman come to life. But Hamm would be pretty perfect, especially in a few years.

Why a woman as the Joker?

I could definitely see Josh Brolin as this version of Superman but I also could see him as Batman.
