    If The Dark Knight Returns was ever made into a live action movie, this would be a cool cast:

    Sean Bean as Bruce Wayne/Batman
    Peter O'Toole as Alfred
    Chloë Grace Moretz as Carrie Kelly/Robin
    John Hurt as Comissioner James Gordon
    Cate Blanchett as Ellen Yindel
    Neal McDonoughas Harvey Dent
    Vincent Cassel as The Joker
    Eddie Cibrian as Superman
    Anthony Geary as Oliver Queen

    Bruce Campbell as Superman LMAO id pay a LOT of money to see that.

    Russell and Elliott are great choices. If you were doing it now. If it's in 10 years or so, Jon Hamm will be perfect. An easy transition (from the animated movie) would be to cast Michael Emerson for the Joker. Since it's an older and slightly different Joker.

    CrypticName i love your cast, especially Kurt Russell and Sam Elliot. Willem Dafoe is a great choice but Id replace him with David Bowie.

    Bruce Campbell as Superman... i love Campbell but just no to that idea. Maybe Jon Hamm?

    And since Michael Emerson is an awesome actor. I always thought he'd be a great Mad Hatter.

    He could play Mad Hatter or Riddler extremely well. The guy is awesome, someone please hire him for something Batman live-action related.

    I'd give my right arm to see Superman say to Lois
    "Give me some sugar, baby" :hehe:

    "The world is safe again, Superman. Thanks to you"
    "Groovy" :lmao:

    Love that cast! I've wanted Campbell for a superhero for awhile, he'd be an excellent Superman if he got in better shape.

    Chloe Moretz as Carrie Kelly would be fantastic.

    I actually thought about Jon Hamm but I settled on Campbell because in my eye he just looks like an aged Silver Age Superman come to life. But Hamm would be pretty perfect, especially in a few years.

    Why a woman as the Joker?

    I could definitely see Josh Brolin as this version of Superman but I also could see him as Batman.

    Saw this in another thread for the batman reboot, and while I didn't agree with it for that, I think he'd be a great older bruce for a live action DKR

    Funnily enough I came in here to suggest him for Batman. With a little bit of age makeup he'd be perfect.
