Casting the DC Villains. Now keep in mind I can't cast every villain.

Javier Bardem as Vandal Savage.

Known for: The Sea Inside (2004), No Country For Old Men (2007) and Skyfall (2012).


Reason: Well he played a great bad guy in Skyfall.

Crispin Glover as The Joker.

Known for: Back To The Future (1985), Charlie's Angles (2000) and Willard (2003).

Reason: I mean come on he's basically the Joker in real life. He's played creepy before. Just watch Willard or Charlie's Angles. And come on, he looks great in make up.

Billy Zane as Lex Luthor.

Known for: Tombstone (1993), Demon Knight (1995) and Zoolander (2001).

Reason: Well he looks the animated series version. After watching Demon Knight he can play a charismatic figure but in the shadows some who is cold and maniacal/terrifying figure. Not to mention his voice sounds like Clancy Brown.

Benedict Cumberbatch as Captain Cold.

Known for: Atonement (2007), War Horse (2011) and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Reason: Come on. If you've seen Star Trek Into Darkness you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Gary Oldman as Sinestro.

Known for: The Professional (1994), Air Force One (1997) and Batman Begins (2005).

Reason: I know he was Gordon. Chris Evans did it. He's a tremendous actor and he can play a great bad guy.

Ron Perlman as Slade/Deathstroke.

Known for: Teen Titans (2000 - 2003), Hellboy (2004), and Drive (2011).

Reason: He just flat out deserves to play him live action. He even looks like the character.

Gina Carano as The Cheetah.

Known for: Ring Girls (2005), Haywire (2011) and Fast and The Furious (2013).

Reason: An odd choice but it would work.

Kevin Grievoux as Gorilla Grodd.

Known for: Planet Of The Apes (2001), Underworld (2003), and Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans (2009).

Reason: Well the guy is beast and has an intimidating voice.

Ralph Fiennes as Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze.

Known for: Red Dragon (2002), Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire (2005) and Clash Of The Titans (2010).

Reason: I was originally gonna go with Patrick Stewart, but he'd never do it. Then I thought of Fiennes. He would be much better than Arnold Shwartzneger.

Stanley Tucci as Dr. Hugo Strange.

Known for: Terminal (2004), Devil Wears Proda (2005), and The Lovely Bones (2010).

Reason: Nuff said. Just watch the Lovely Bones. He can be very creepy.

Paul Giamatti as Oswald Copplepot/The Penguin.

Known for: Saving Private Ryan (1999), Big Fat Liar (2002) and Shoot Em Up (2007).

Reason: It's such a shame he's playing Rhino. He's a fantastic actor (much like Bryan Cranston he could do anything) and he played a fantastic bad guy in Shoot Em Up.

Michael C. Hall as Edward Nigman/The Riddler.

Known for: Sex Under Feet (2001), Dexter (2006 - 2013) and Gamer (2009).

Reason: I've heard his name pop up for Lex Luthor, but personally I prefer him as The Riddler. Just watch Gamer.

Steve Buscemi as Dr. Johnathan Crane/The Scarecrow.

Known for: Reservoir Dogs (1992), Fargo (1995) and Mr. Deeds (2002).

Reason: This was hard for me to think of because Cillain Murphy was so PERFECT for the part. After watching Fargo Steve Buscemi would make an awesome Scarecrow.

Jason Isaacs as Ra's Al Ghul.

Known for: The Patriot (2000), Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets (2003) and Batman Under Red Hood (2010).


Reason: Well, he voice him Batman Under The Red Hood so why not?

Hugo Weaving as Braniac.

Known for: The Matrix (1999), Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers (2002), and V For Vendetta (2005).

Reason: Nuff said.

Malcolm McDowell as Metallo (Robot) (Voice).

Known for: Known for: Clock Work Orange (1971), Superman The Animated Series (1996 - 2000), and Halloween (2007).

Reason: They should just make him a robot and have McDowell do the voice.

Jason Momoa as Lobo.

Known for: Stargate Atlantis (2004), Conan: The Barbarian (2011), and Bullet To The Head (2012).

Reason: If you watch Bullet To The Head you'll realize.

Michael Ironside as Darkseid (CGI) (Voice).

Known for: Total Recall (1990), Superman The Animated Series (1996 - 2000) and Justice League/Justice League Unlimited (2001 - 2006).

Reason: I would keep Ironside. No one else can do it but him.

Brad Douriff as Toy Man (Voice).

Known for: Child's Play (1988), Child's Play 2 (1990), and Alien Resurection (1997).

Reason: He was Chucky. Nuff said.

Emma Stone as Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy.

Known for: Known for: Super Bad (2007), The Help (2011) and Gangster Squad (2013).


Reason: I know she was Gwen Stacy. But again if Chris Evans can do it why not Emma Stone? She's a really good actress/really good looking and it is indeed a weird choice but it would work.

Charlize Theron as Livewire.

Known for: The Italian Job (2002), Hancock (2008), and Snow White And The Hunstman (2012).

Reason: She just fits the role all right.

Gemma Arteron as Talia Al Ghul.

Known for: Quantam of Solace (2008), Clash Of The Titans (2010) and Hansel and Gretel (2010).

Reason: Weird choice but it would work.

Kate Beckinsale as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

Known for: Underworld (2003), The Aviator (2004) and Total Recall (2012).

Reason: I originally has Angelina but I realized she'd never do it. She's really good looking a solid actress and she could totally pull it off. Not mention she can do great action.

Katee Sackhoff as Dr. Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn.

Known for: Battlestar Galactica (2004), White Noise 2 (2007) and Riddick (2013).

Reason: A lot of people suggest Amanda Seyfried but she's too young and innocent for me. Plus she's not good looking. I would like a good looking Harley Quinn. Sackhoff seems to understand the character so why not?

Jessica Biel as Mercedes "Mercy" Graves.

Known for: Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), Chuck and Larry (2007) and The A-Team (2010).

Reason: She looks the part and can act the part. She's very attractive and can do great action. I mean she's played a toughie before.
