I think Cyborg is super boring and don't want to see him in a Justice League movie, but that is the craziest reasoning I have ever heard to not include him.

When I read JL I'm just like, "Other than hacking, why are you here?"

He just isn't interesting at all. It's too bad Martian Manhunter is leading JLA, because he would have completed the great lineup by replacing Cyborg.

I think if all of the characters, I think Wonder Woman is ambiguous and exotic enough that she can played by someone ethnic.

Yeah Karl does not look 40 at all. Neither does John Cho.

Karl Urban would be an awesome Batman. He's got the perfect voice and I can see him being far more intimidating than Bale and Keaton.

An "Arkham Asylum/ City" style Batman if you like.

Batman, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman are not black and don't look as if they could be played by a black actors, sorry.
It's ridiculously gimmicky and pandering to change them to such.
WW can be played by Euro women and more of the Mediterranean-looking actresses.

My cast based on current and previous rumors and speculation

Director-Zack Snyder (Just have a feeling about this one :/)

Superman-Henry Cavill


"Batman"-Joseph Gordon Levitt


Wonder Woman-Jessica Biel (early on in MOS theere were rumors of her being on/near the set plus the mention of the possible cameo in MoS so I'm going with this for now


Green Lantern-Ryan Reynolds (if Hal)


As we saw there are multiple GL's so it could be easily explained that while Hal is off world Earth needed another GL and they go with John who can add diversity to the cast in that case I go with Common (He almost had it before and he was the one choice I was totally on board with from the previous attempt


The Flash-I have little doubt that when we do get Flash on film it will be Barry Allen, I'd like to see someone inject more personality and charisma into him like RDJ did for Stark, and I'm prepared for a flaming, but I believe Timberlake could own this role as well as be marketed to women and bring more name recognition to the project. And, IMO he's overcome a lot of the previous stigma attached to him getting movie roles previously.




Cyborg-Why would he be in this over Martian Manhunter you ask? The answer is twofold, one because I'd bet my two front teeth DC/WB want their own "Iron Man" character on screen, and secondly he adds diversity to the cast for Cyborg I go with Gaius Charles, instead of just out of High School have him just out of College.


Darkseid-Our rumored villain. I much prefer a man in prosthetics, enhanced by cgi a la Hellboy. I think it looks much better than a total cgi creation. While I long wanted MCD (may he RIP), I guess now I'd go with Idris Elba. he's got the commanding voice and presence to pull it off. My back up would be the man very used to that process Ron Perlman himself

Who ever said anything about Aquaman being black or any race but white for that matter?

I think she can be played by any actress really, including black. I've always saw WW as pretty open to race to a certain degree. Even most of the actresses fanboys tend to mention aren't of from or of strong Mediterranean decent. Any it depends, because I can see a Paula Patton-type playing WW (not Beyonce) if you want to go down that route.. Or an actress from South America can easily play WW.

Wonder Woman has a very specific and iconic look. Just like Superman. They're the only 2 you really can't mess with, imo.

I agree. I could easily see the Amazons being portrayed as a unique, Greek-inspired, but not actually Greek culture. That way Amazons could be of any race.

Of course Rachel Dawes wouldn't want anyone to mess with Batman! That being said, I completely agree. While I've said before that I wouldn't mind a black Batman, I wouldn't neccissarly prefer or want one. And Bruce is more iconic than Diana. Clark Kent is off limits as far as changes to his look and Bruce is a close second. Diana, not so much, what really matters is that she portrayed as a graceful warrior princess by and beautiful and talented actress.
