    And he's half Mexican!

    That's important, right?

    I haven't really established that Vic is half Mexican, but sure, it helps!

    If Spike and Byrd hadn't beaten me to the punch, I would've had these up sooner. But I, too, have decided to recast an earlier casting of mine. The new Ultimate Batman Universe...

    Batman/Bruce Wayne - Ryan Phillipe
    Not the most traditional choice for the Caped Crusader, but his role in Cruel Intentions showed that he could be a cunning, manipulative spoiled brat, which is how I eventually want to portray the Wayne facade. And his role in a movie called Franklyn showed that he could be the raspy voiced, mysterious vigilante going up against a city of corruption. He's also played a soldier twice, which is a key part of Bruce's backstory in the game.

    Alfred Jarvis - Jude Law
    Seeing Sherlock Holmes shed a new light on how I could potentially portray the younger Alfred's relationship with Bruce, which is very much like the Watson to Holmes - doting and loyal, yet skeptical and consistently bothered by the fact that his own life is being disrupted by his friend's unusual occupation. Brothers not in blood, but in bond.

    Henri Ducard/Ra's Al Ghul - Ralph Fiennes
    While I still like my original choice of Benecio Del Toro, Fiennes brings more of a quality that Liam Neeson brought to the role in Begins, which is a mentor with practical experience and a worldly sense of being. It also doesn't hurt that he played Neeson's brother in the Clash of The Titans remake.

    Talia Ducard - Olga Kurylenko
    After seeing her in Hitman and Quantum of Solace, I think she'd be able to pull off the role well. It doesn't require an Oscar caliber actress more than an exotic face that sticks with you, as it does Bruce for the rest of his life.

    Phillip Wayne - Bruce Greenwood
    Continuing the tradition of former Batmen in the role, Greenwood embodies the man on the path to redemption through surrogate fatherhood over young Bruce. Plus, I personally felt he was a great Batman in Under the Red Hood, so I wanted to give him his props.

    Lucius Fox - Robert Townsend
    Physically, he's the perfect counterpart for the role. It's as if Lucius jumped off of the page. Townsend was also a childhood favorite of mine as the Meteor Man.

    Salvatore Maroni - Mark Strong
    His role as a mobster in Kick-Ass was pretty much perfect for the archetype Maroni represents.

    Carmine Falcone - Christoph Waltz
    Wasted opportunity as a mobster in the Seth Rogen Green Hornet, he'd be better used as Gotham's notorious top don.

    Helena Bertinelli - Jessica Biel
    Given where the character is going to go, I needed an actress who could play tough-as-nails yet completely vulnerable to her emotions, which is what Biel is to a tee. For proof, reference Blade: Trinity and The A-Team.

    Oswald Cobblepot - Ray Liotta
    Cobblepot isn't meant to be a short, pudgy and dignified gentleman in this universe, more than a mean spirited wannabe mobster. Liotta could do great things with the role, while adding a familiar face to round out the cast.

    Ultimate DC RPG

    Larfleeze - Scott McNeil: Considering Larfleeze is an alien, there's no actor that looks like him; therefore, the voice is the only way to 'cast' him. I chose Scott because based on his previous animation rolls, I think he has the specific voice I hear when I write Larfleeze or read him (in any medium, not just UDC). Scott's other roles have been Dinobot in Beast Wars, Piccolo (Ocean Group Dub) in Dragon Ball Z, and Logan/Wolverine in X-Men: Evolution, along with a lot of other voices in other TV Shows.

    What I like about Brandon Routh is that his roles in Superman Returns, Chuck, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World show that he's equally adept at playing the *****ebag as he is at playing the strong, silent hero.

    I've always thought his character on Chuck was a *****e, i was watching it with my parents when they revealed his true affiliation and my first words out of no where were "He's a *****e bag!"

    I'd like to cast Hulk at this point, not Banner, but Hulk,
    Who better then the original hulk?
    LOU FERICKIN FERRIGNO!
    Besides, he still has arms larger then I am

    I think my Howard would be voiced either by H. Jon Benjamin, Dana Snyder, or whoever does the voice of Carl on Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
