Default Cast the rest of the Big 7 for Superman/Batman

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg confirmed to be here, and according to many sites, there's some other announcements for the rest of the team.
So I ask this.
Which other members are going to be cast and who you think/want are the actors that will play them.

We sort of have that Momoa is Aquaman

I think he could also be Hawkman or a villain but the first choice is Aquaman.

If Flash is on this I would rather have maybe Cooper but I think Chris Pine or an unknown for this one.




I want John Stewart over Hal Jordan in this but I would be pleased with hal or john.
If is John Stewart I'd put Idris Elba but if is Hal I'd put either Jensen Ackless or Ryan Gosling.






What about Dwayne Johnson's Role
I think he could be MM if he plays a hero.





That leaves the big 7 as
Supes, Bats, Wondy, Flash, GL, Cyborg and Aquaman or MM.

If Aquaman or the other two aren't cast. I'm guessing this. Maybe for a JL sequel or if they don't introduce Aquaman and they want the Hawks here and Momoa is indeed Hawkman. I absolutely want Eva Green as Hawkgirl or maybe Margot Robbie. But Eva Green is my top choice.

Superman: Henry Cavill
Batman: Ben Affleck
Wonder Woman: Gal Gadot
Green Lantern: Dwayne Johnson
The Flash: Ryan Gosling
Aquaman: Jason Momoa
Cyborg: Ray Fisher

and i really want Nightwing or Robin to either be on the team (officially or unofficially) or to at least make a small appearance.

So maybe...
Nightwing: Aaron Paul

I don't know if you noticed a while ago but Dwayne Johnson said he isn't playing GL.
Or is it only a fan cast of this character?

If you look closely, Dwayne Johnson never said he wouldn't be Green Lantern. All he said is that Green Lantern has been done before by Ryan Reynolds. I think he may want people to think he isn't playing Green Lantern..

I want him for GL too but I guess he told us on twitter that he's not playing GL. That the character has already been adapted. So it pretty much says that he would do another one. I don't close the door entirely though.

Rock could be playing - Lobo or Black Adam maybe even Aquaman.

I don't think that Jason Momoa is Aquaman.

As Aquaman is a complex character and requires decent amount of acting skills, in that department Rock > Jason Momoa.

I think that Momoa is Vandal Savage.

Yeah I've seen those posts, you'll notice i was paraphrasing what he said.

Did you see the tweets where he said "Lantern Can Whup Superman"? and then he comes out with the comments about the mystery character having to be able to go toe to toe with Superman

He never explicitly states that he won't be playing Green Lantern. Why doesn't he straight come out and say "i won't be playing GL" if he isn't playing him?

All he has to say is "Hal Jordan has been stamped, but John Stewart has not", and BAM, he never lied in the first place

I don't believe that he is playing GL, but it's what I'd like to happen.

I think it's just as likely for him to be playing Black Adam, Captain Marvel, or Lobo

He said GL was stamped even after specifically mentioning John Stewart. Plus, this quote from Badass Digest from a roundtable interview with him:

Quote:
The nature of the conversation we were having had The Rock telling us he loved superheroes, and it seemed like he was going for a heroic part (it's worth noting that other stuff The Rock said after the interview was officially over make me quite very 100% convinced he's not playing John Stewart. Like, things that are not vague but that I don't have recorded).
I highly doubt he's GL.

I dunno, The Rock would work as Aquaman for sure, but I think Jason Momoa has the skill to play a convincing Aquaman.

That's a bit more confirmation... disappointing tho.

I prefer Hal to John, but Johnson could do a lot of good for the GL character's popularity.

If Dwayne Johnson or Idris Elba aren't playing John Stewart, then I want Hal Jordan. I'd only want John Stewart if he's played by an actor I like, but also it has to be an actor that can elevate the character in the public eye.

But otherwise, Hal Jordan should be used, he's the best GL imo

The creators of JL admitted that they used John Stewart for the sake of diversity. He ended up being extremely well written and well rounded on the show, but still, the main reason he was used is because of the color of his skin.
If people are that hung up on there being more diversity on the team, i say they just make Hal Jordan black. Hal has the best backstory, and he's been the lead in the best GL stories, and his relationship with Sinestro is the central hero/villain relationship in the Green Lantern mythology. He really should be the GL that the movies focus on..

If john Stewart is GL in the movies, i hope that they use elements from Hal's stories. Maybe in the movies, the central villain/hero conflict is between Sinestro/Hal, and Hal wouldn't even exist?

You really want him as GL right?
He didn't exactly meant that Hal is and he's playing John, he meant IMO that GL was already adapted, that other character he's playing. but also did you see that?
Quote:

Dwayne Johnson @TheRock Follow All I said was.. #LanternCanWhupSuperman RT: @IGN: Did @TheRock reveal that he's playing John Stewart/Green Lantern? http://go.ign.com/1b0qHO6
While I don't think GL is in the same power level of Supes. I think he may refered that he may have the power to give a surprise to Supes. If he meant that then I agree with him but if he meant the other thing I think he debunked GL by saying that.

Here's smth you may like

I would dig Rock as Martian Manhunter. Then again, he could play Zatanna and it would still be ****ing awesome so....

Yeah he really would be the guy to fix GL's big screen reputation. But I think there are others who could elevate the John Stewart character with a great performance.

It's so obvious, he's too big for it/would demand to be the lead, and he's getting old, but Will Smith would be another good dude to bring GL back from the dead

I think the role of The Rock is MM if he's a hero, or even Black Adam (think about it, he was the Shazam of the ancient times, and he fits the 3 traits), Lobo.

For Momoa I think he could be Aquaman. If not he could also be metallo, Hawkman, or any other big size villain.

I'd love it if Johnson were MM. I think it's unlikely that MM will be in the films tho, seeing as he was replaced by Cyborg...and now Cyborg is in BvS....He's definitely one of the coolest DC heroes, and i personally think he has a lot of solo potential, it's a shame that there isn't more of a focus on MM at DC comics

I don't think Cyborg would be an obstacle for MM to be in this also. I think they can fit both great. If they aren't using MM for The Rock. I would like to see MM on a possible JL sequel.

The problem with Reynolds was that he had no bravado, and that is Hal's defining trait, in my opinion more so than his "fearlessness". Yes, Hal can be funny and witty at times, and Ackles has awesome comedic timing. But where he and Reynolds differ is that Ackles oozes bravado whereas Reynolds just doesn't. At least in my opinion.

Jensen Ackles would make a pretty sweet Hal Jordan methinks.
