Justin T. is a good actor and has a physique similar to Barry Allen's.

The films I have seen Justin T. in have proven IMO that he is capable of that. However, I wouldn't mind seeing other actors such as him in that role.

Green Lantern is military? Yes? sorry I'm not as caught up as i should be. So isnt he someone that should be able to have an aura of authority.... like a military trained man.
The actors we have thrown around for GL fit the role of a military pilot though, at least I thought they did. Duhamel has a very military look to him if you ask me, more so than Reynolds did.

And Wonder Woman is Woman. By definition an amazon is a tall aggressive strong willed woman. So she should have a strong facial structure not soft features. More Lucy Lawless less Katy Perry types.
For me it is more important that WW be attractive tan have a strong manly face and hard features. Lucy Lawless would have been perfect for Wonder Woman IMO if they did JL 10-15 years ago or if they did Kingdome Come now. She is an attractive woman what actually had a more soft face to her than a hard face; however, she could look intimidating. Plus she was a larger framed woman and that just added to her look.

Pretty much any actress can put on muscle for the role so that's why I am mainly looking at actresses facial features and height.

And cyborg is high school athlete right. So he would be pretty young maybe freshman in college age. Larger build not talk with a slender muscular build. So i can better understand would you guys/girls say these are pretty good assumptions of the character types?
I thought the consensus was to either have an older teen or early 20s actor play Cyborg if in JL1. I don't care if he has a track runner, football, or basketball player build though runner and football players tend to have better all around physiques.

If an actor in that generation plays Bruce Wayne, I think Johnny Depp would be a better choice, if he plays the role straight (as he did in Public Enemies).

I think any of my choices for Batman/Bruce would work but I'm leaning towards my first two for an older rugged Batman:
Karl Urban
Anson Mount
Justin Bruenig
Colin Egglesfield
Robbie Amell (Stephen Amell's cousin, also an actor)
Rick Malambri

If Batman has to be recast then why does Karl Urban keep coming up as a possible choice? Really? Karl Urban? Isn't this guy alittle too cheeky and fat faced to play Bruce Wayne. The guy has a really weird looking face.

Have you seen him in Red or 2nd Bourne Movie or Priest? He has a good look, raspy voice and is a good actor.

Not to mention if we are gonna go with an actor who's in the 40 range that would be all the more reason to think of a way to get Bale back. I mean if it's gotta be a recast it should be a younger actor in my opinion, around Cavill's age. Especially for a passing of the torch kind of thing.

If it's a rebooted Bats it must be a 30 year old, or early 30's actor playing the younger Bruce Wayne. Otherwise i completely agree that they need to offer Bale as much money as possible.

If they can't get Bale they should get Luke Evans.

Wow, I never noticed that before, also the two starred opposite each other in Three Musketeers, that must have been confusing on set.

I'd support JT as Barry. He has charisma and actual acting talent.

I've always liked Reddick as J'onn but I never knew he was 6'4 and built like an athlete.

I like the fact that everyone is mainly throwing out a black actor for the role of Martian Manhunter/J'onn. However, what if they went with a strong white actor like Liam Neeson or someone similar?

I'm just tired of hearing the ridiculous notion of changing distinctly white looking characters to other ethnicities. It's stupid and it opens a whole can of worms of debate and racism accusations, and the same bull can only be said so many times; especially considering when there's threads and a current thread about the topic.

Wow geez lol. All I was saying is that I wouldn't mind if the actor playing a green martian was liam neeson lol Fine we will only suggest black people. I don't want to offend any white people as a black man suggesting any white actors for a role where the character is green lol

If white people want a black man then by golly I'll only suggest a black man LOL. I don't want to be called racist for not suggesting someone of the same skin color as I

How exactly is MM "distinctly white looking"? I know his John Jones cop alter-ego was white, but that's not exactly a non-negotiable for a shape-shifter.
