    How about Jeff Goldblum as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic?

    Can you imagine Jeff as Clark Kent?

    I nominate Ron Perlman as the Thing/Ben Grimm

    I don't really see Harrison Ford as Iceman. Ford as Cyclops maybe, but not Iceman. How about Mark Hamill for Iceman?

    Goldblum would've actually made a great Joker or Scarecrow in a 1980s' Batman flick. He's my choice for The Riddler in the current franchise.

    Here's just some random casting choices for superhero movies in other decades.

    Superman - Rock Hudson (1950s'-early 1960s')
    [​IMG]

    Lois Lane - Audrey Hepburn
    [​IMG]

    Wonder Woman - Sophia Loren (also my choice for Talia in a 1950s' Batman) (1950s'-early 1960s')

    [​IMG]

    Harry Osbourne - James Dean (1950s')
    [​IMG]

    Wolverine - Jack Nicholson (1970s')

    John Cusack = Peter Parker

    [​IMG]

    I watch Cusack in any of his films and he's closer to Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire is when he's actually playing the character.

    Waaaay back in 2000 or so, someone asked Cusack in a web chat if he'd be up for playing Spidey, and Cusack said something like, "Of course, but all these young actors are trying to take it away from me." Not that it's likely Cusack was ever in the frame, but it's cool that he was intrested.

    I like all your other picks but James Dean would only be like a retro version of the James Franco-ized Harry, which wasn't that reminiscent of the comic book version.

    I like John Cusack as Spidey, and Diane Lane as MJ, I think that would have been great.
    I think John Goodman would have to fit into a flick someplace, maybe as Doc Ock.
