This not based on Man Of Steel 2 (well sorta is). This based on the 1997 cartoon. I personally wouldn't go this direction, but let's have some fun. Shall we. The only thing I would change is that Lex Luthor fights Superman in his armor suit at the end. I'm not casting everyone. Too much of a pain in the ass.
Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman.
Known for: The Count Of Monte Cristo (2002), Immortals (2011) and Man Of Steel (2013).
Reason: Do I really have to explain. He did a great job and I'm glad he's reprising his role.
Jeffrey Donovan as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
Known for: Hitch (2005), Burn Notice (2007 - 2013) and J. Edgar (2011).
Reason: Michael Fassbender and Karl Urban are too short, Scott Adkins can't act, and Eric Bana sucks. Jeffrey Donovan is a great martial artist and unlike Scott Adkins he actually act. After watching darker episodes of Burn Notice I think he'd do an amazing job as both Bruce Wayne and Batman. Not to mention his voice sounds like Kevin Conroy.
Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
Known for: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), The Town (2010) and Argo (2012).
Whether you like it or not he's Batman and get over it. Daredevil was a long time ago and wasn't his fault. Just watch The Town and Argo. He might do a great job. Just give the man A GOD DAMN CHANCE!
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.
Crispin Glover as The Joker.
Known for: Back To The Future (1985), Charlie's Angels (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.
Jessica Biel as Mercedes "Mercy" Graves.
Known for: Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), I No Pronounce 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.
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?
Shia Labeouf as Jimmy Olsen.
Known for: Even Stevens (2001 - 2004), Constantine (2005) and Disturbia (2007).
Reason: Now hear me out. Just because he's been in a bad movie doesn't make him a bad actor. If you watch Even Stevens or Constantine he is a good actor. I think he would make a great Jimmy Olsen.
Terence Stamp as Alfred Pennyworth.
Known for: Superman II (1980), Star Wars Episode I: The Phamton Menace/Bowfinger/The Limey (1999) and The Adjustment Bureau (2010).
Reason: I know he was Zod in Superman II. Chris Evans was Human Torch and Captain America so why not? He's a great/underrated British actor who can be warm/kind and at the same time he can also be a bad ass. I think he would do an amazing job.
Bryan Cranston as Commissioner James Gordon.
Known for: Malcolm In The Middle (1999 - 2005), Breaking Bad (2008 - 2013) and Batman: Year One (2011).
Reason: Cranston deserves to play Gordon in live action. Not to mention he looks like him. He's a terrific actor and he can do anything.
