Default Comedy cast the DC universe

Hi all, I tried this a while ago in the Marvel film forum and it worked out pretty well so here goes.

If they were to make comedies based on your favourite DC universe who would you choose? I mean, it can't be any less of a joke than Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern

So for example: Batman

Batman: Brad Garrett (think of the voice)

Alfred: Eugene Levy


The Joker- Jim Rash (have to get someone from Community in here somewhere)

Barbara Gordon- Katherine Parkinson

I feel like some of the top choices for the characters could also play "comedy" versions of them, such as Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan and Neil Patrick Harris as Barry Allen.

Dayum, Wish I had chosen Noel Fielding (Mighty Boosh) as the Joker now.

That'd actually be pretty good in a regular batfilm.

David Cross as Gordon
Will Arnett as The Joker
Tony Hale as The Riddler
Portia de Rossi as Catwoman
Alia Shawkat as Batgirl
Jessica Walker as Leslie Thompkins
Carl Weathers as Lucius Fox
Tom Jane as Two-Face (I just want my face back!)

Imagine this done during mid-to-late 80s, when there was many popular film comedy stars in the business at the same time: Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Rick Moranis, John Candy, Martin Short, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, Gene Wilder, Richard Pryor, Dudley Moore, Harold Ramis, Michael J Fox... and even Tom Hanks.
