    Although I would want this to be as close of an adaptation as it could be, one area where I might expand upon is some of the secondary and tertiary characters since they don’t get a lot of facetime in the graphic novel. I don’t think Flash, GL or Hawkman even have any dialogue. So I would give them some (at least GL; the other two have transcended into otherworldly forms so maybe they don’t need to speak).

    I would also include Ibn’s story. I absolutely loathe “The Kingdom,” the abysmal sequel to KC. However the ONE good thing in it is Ibn’s backstory. I would include some of that and make him more of a player in the overall story.

    Can’t go wrong with Hamm as Superman. I think you use that as your starting point and build from there…

    (oh and I’m now seeing with both cast Marwan Kenzari, but in different roles!)

    Recast the whole thing.

    Clean slate.

    Good stuff! Funny thing; I originally had Marwan down for Ibn too before settling on him for Savage. But he could play either. Like I said before, Ibn’s story is one that I would definitely expand upon.

    Also, love the idea of Angela Bassett as Selina. That’s something I need to see now.

    I have always thought Jon Hamm is a lot better casting as Batman, even if many people want him as Superman.

    Hamm could have probably worked as Batman too, yeah.
