Default Which actors should WB/DC recruit?

Made this as a response to Tg11's Marvel version of this thread.

I dropped the part about "who DC should have recruited" part as I wouldn't want to create another thread about people who hate the current slate of DCCU actors or another "Grant Gustin should have been the movie Flash!" thread.

I'll start:

Nathan Fillion for an older Hal Jordan.

Steal Natalie Portman from Marvel! She's being underutilized over there!

Getting Will Smith was huge. I know that's not really the point of the thread, but Will Smith is probably their best "get" in recent years.
They've got pretty solid casting from top to bottom.

Yeah I agree with that Flint, even though his last couple of movies haven't done well I do think that's more to do with the material than a drop in interest for Smith. Think he's a hell of a good get for WB/DC.

I know he's getting on in years but I would love for them to find a role for Denzel Washington.

His last few movies have been largely disappointing but as you said that has nothing to do with him. Will Smith is a bonafide, old-fashioned movie star and in the right vehicle he brings a lot to the role.
Denzel would also be a good choice for a role, but I don't see him wearing spandex or leaping over buildings. I could see as a cop or something like that; maybe he's Gothams DA or a commissioner? Id love to see something like that.

Denzel would be an awesome Gordon.
I would like Edgar Rameriz and Jessica Chastain get a role in a DC film.

Yep, agreed again.

Remember when there was rumours for Dark Knight Rises that there would be a task force to take down the Batman (well it did kind of turn out to be true with Matthew Modine's character going after Batman for a scene). I was hoping Denzel would get cast as the lead Cop in charge of that task force. I think that kind of role would be great for him.

Jason Clarke
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Alexandra Daddario
Michael C. Hall

So proud to have come to this thread & already have seen the names Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles & Bryan Cranston.

Would be nice if those earlier Denzel Washington / Green Lantern talks turned out to be a lock.

Dan Stevens. Might be a spot on Dr. Fate. Go ahead and cast Jessica Chastain as Inza.

Do those guys ever do anything outside of Supernatural?

Also, another actress to add, Jennifer Aniston, preferably as a supporting role. Cat Grant would be great or Vicki Vale.





I can imagine her hitting on both Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck.

Nothing against Aniston but I'll pass on her being in either a DC or Marvel film.

And Ackles starred in My Bloody Valentine (highly successful) as well as voicing Red Hood in the animated movie he had a few years back. Padalecki has been in the Friday the 13th reboot & I've seen him in other horror movies as well.

But yeah, it'd be nice to see them be apart of something bigger. They're both very talented dudes.

And I love Aniston but again, I'm not clamoring to have her in a comic book movie. If she gets cast, I wouldn't complain though, I could live with it.

I'd like to see Charlize Theron in (another) comic book movie, maybe as Queen Hippolyta or someone along those lines.

I'd like to see her as either an Amazon or a Wonder Woman villain. Cheetah would be cool.
