Seeing as though Warner Bros. have confirmed more DC comic movies in the coming years (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=109019), i think now is the time to create my ideal cast around Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman.
Batman: Ben Affleck.
I am in the minority when i say that Affleck will make a great Dark Knight, i love his work in ‘The Town’ and ‘Argo’ and i think that he will surprise everyone with his take on the Caped Crusader.
Superman: Henry Cavill.
Having already seen Cavill in ‘Man Of Steel’, we know he can play a great Superman finding out who he is, what we don’t know is that whether he can portray Superman in his prime against Batman. Time will tell.
Wonder Woman: Jaimie Alexander.
Unlike most choices for the role, Alexander has the acting chops to go along with the looks that Adrianne Palicki had in her failed pilot for a Wonder Woman tv show. She has proved herself with ‘Thor’, and looks to have gone one better in ‘Thor: The Dark World. Marvel has her under contract for the time being, but i think Warner Bros needs to take their chances with this great actress sooner rather than later.
Green Lantern: Idris Elba.
I think going the John Stewart route is perhaps better than pursuing Hal Jordan again, after the disaster which was ‘Green Lantern’. Elba is an impressive actor, with lots of experience with action thanks to ‘Pacific Rim’ and ‘Prometheus’. Elba could bring the right calmness and steely determination that John Stewart needs, and would provide an interesting contrast to the otherwise, all white cast.
The Flash: Chris Pine.
Pine would be a fine choice for Barry Allen. He has good comic timing, and can bounce off other characters well, like in ‘Star Trek’ and its sequel. He also has the look, and hasn’t been in a comic-book movie before.
What do you think of my choices? Let me know in the comments!
