Default Re: The Justice League Casting Thread - Part 3

Here's a cast I both like, and think would all have a decent shot at actually getting the parts

Superman-Henry Cavill

Batman-Jake Gyllenhaal

Wonder Woman-Amber Heard

Green Lantern-Ryan Reynolds (GL was meh but he excels in an ensemble IMO)

The Flash-Mike Vogel

Cyborg-Gaius Charles (I'm not changing my choice here )

Aquaman-Jai Courtney

John Stewart-Erik King

Martian Manhunter-Lance Reddick, also absolutely love the Goldblum suggestion

1. We get that everyone pretty much wants Henry Cavill so unless your suggesting someone else there is no reason to put Henry Cavill lol.

2. I like Gaius Charles suggestion. He's a good actor and would make a good Cyborg.

3. Who would you suggest other than Gylenhaal? In recent posts we made of list of actors that are mentioned far too often that we don't want to see suggested again and for posters to get creative and post new suggestions.
Plus, Gylenhaal would suck as Batman IMO lol. He still comes off boyish and novelty in some ways. I would rather see a more manly actor than a boyish actor. In fact I would rather Colin Farrell be Bruce than Gylenhaal if I had to choose.

1. Too bad I typed it

2. Thank you

3. I saw those posts. I just think he'd be a very good Bruce Wayne

My true dream choice without thoughts of age or star power and simply who I like, Jack Huston would be my Batman.

I'd also prefer Kyle and Wally to Hal and Barry or John. Haven't given much thought to who I'd cast as Kyle.

Posters there already think I don't belong because I don't find Nolan to be a Bat-god.
Let's see what else they got.

Over them? Pfft. They're great in comedic roles, but they really need to stop attempting dramatic roles.

I haven't seen Gangster Squad yet, but a lot of the reviews seemed to indicate that very few of the characters were fleshed out. If that's true, then that might also be the problem with this JL script. The reason The Avengers worked wasn't because it had a great story... it really didn't; just your typical "aliens are invading and only a rag-tag band of heroes can stop them." It was essentially Independence Day with super powers. And yet it worked really well because the characters were all very well-written (well, all but Hawkeye).

For JL to work, everybody needs to be given ample time and we have to give a damn about them. They can't simply expect people to be interested in Batman because he's Batman; he has to be more than a costume and fighting skills. If Beall's script didn't accomplish that, then they need to pull in someone who does understand character development and either punch it up, or write a new draft altogether.

That's why it is important they have just five members in the first movie! IMO.

You've got moxie kid

Don't type it again lol.

I think Jack Huston would make a better Kyle Rainer than Bruce Wayne.

However, I don't know about seeing Kyle and Wally in a JL movie before Hal, Barry and/or John.

Honestly, I would not want Ridley Scott to direct a JL film. IMO his brother Tony Scott was better at action films, only slightly though. Ridley tends to be more drawn out with the suspense and build up.

Also, I thought Hawkeye was written fine in Avengers. Make him a somewhat formidable badguy and then an asset to the team worked. I also thought he brought the human aspect and enjoyed the element of skepticism and sarcasm. In fact I even thought he fit better than Scarlett. I like Scarlett, trust me lol, but I always thought that someone else could have possibly made a better Black Widow. Don't get me wrong I'm happy with her performance and don't mind seeing her, it's just I envisioned a stronger female actress.

5 members & maybe 2 cameos or mentions of other heroes just to show that there are other heroes that work with the team or exist possibly.

"Just five" in the first movie? How many would you want in the second and third?

They'd have to get to the likes of MM, Aquaman, Cyborg, GA and Black Canary eventually! Definitely the first three anyway. Maybe MM makes a cameo in the end of the first movie or something.

Heroes that need to be in the 1st JL film: Supes, Bats, WW, GL-Hal (maybe John if Hal is off world or hurt and Earth needs a temp GL), & Flash. Heroes, that can show up towards the end or have a small role to build upon in a sequel: MM, Aquaman, Cyborg.

However, I also wouldn't mind if the film is done back-to-back or LOTR style if they use; Supes, WW, GL, Flash in the first film and they actually lose their battle and seek out Batman for his help/guidance.

Either way, I agree that the first film doesn't need more than 5 main heroes.

I think that's stupid personally. There's no need for less than 7 heroes.

How about because introducing the big 7 would saddle the film with introducing 4 non-human races (Amazons, Atlanteans, Martians, and New Gods)? Might be a little difficult while still giving screen time to Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern, and establishing The Flash.

Just curious. If there are so many heroes in the movieis it really necessary that any of them fantastice actors. I mean in Avengers was anyones acting performance anything spectacular outide of Lochi and RDJ. Also i second Ryan Reynolds in an ensemble cast and Amber Heard. I think wonder womans look isnt actually exotic. I think much like superman she looks very girl next door with her appearance of strength and power stemming from her personality dark hair and strong stature not her facial structure. WHich is why i would have to disagree wih Gemma Arterton. Sorry

Lord of the Rings did more:

Elves (Legolas, Arwen, Galadriel, Elrond)
Ainur (Gandalf, Saurman, Sauron)
Hobbits (Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin)
Numenoreans (Aragorn)
Dwarves (Gimli)
Goblins
Orcs
Uruk Hai.

Difficult does not mean impossible. I'd rather have one amazing film that pulls off a difficult task than a film that doesn't live up to a greater potential.

I was referring specifically to Fellowship. Also regarded as a cinematic masterpiece. Why can't Justice League be of a similar length? 150 minutes is more than enough required time.

The Lord of the Rings characters are all familiar tropes that fit quite nicely together. They're not an alien as messiah, a detective/ ninja, an Amazonian warrior, an intergalactic space cop, a Merman, and a Shapeshifting Martian. No one would create an original property from scratch like the Justice League or the Avengers, because the elements are so disparate.

I felt the way you do about Aquaman/ Martian Manhunter about Avengers not having The Pyms, and reusing Loki as the villain until I saw the final product. Sometimes something that seems weaker on paper can be much better in practice.

I like your picks!

I don't think Cyborg's gonna be in the movie though. From the rumors it seems that it's just going to be the big 7 with possible cameos from the rest.

They don't have a line-up pinned down. They're testing out new members through rewrites. I'm sure Superman, Wonder Woman and some form of Batman, Green Lantern, and the Flash will be there. But they're seeing where they can go with the other 2 spots.

Latest Update
Batman - Ian Somerhalder
Aquaman - Nikolaj Waulder
Wonder Woman - Amber Heard ( Good pick Lobo)
Flash - Alan Ritchson
Green Lantern - (tired of denying what i know is the inevitable, and i am convinced he will be better in a team up movie) Ryan Reynolds
MM - Giancarlo Esposito
Cyborg - Sinqua Walls

Cavill looks kind of young. Would Batman have a similar look you think? Or look older than him? I would think if Supes looks young and WW looks young so would Bats. Again i mostly cast on looks alone and i make sure they have acted before. but i admit for Ritchson, Somerhalder, and Walls I am going off of youtube clips

^ I like most of your picks except Somerhalder and Ritchson. The guys are not the best out of the crop of actors available for the parts.

If I had to go for a similar look, I'd go with Matt Bomer for Batman and Charlie Hunnam/Alexander Skarsgard for Aquaman. These guys have a lot more acting talent than Somerhalder or Ritchson IMO.
