I was looking through my articles over the last 4 months that I have been writing for Moviepilot and noticed that I have three articles specifically about the Justice League, but only the first one was a fancast. Since it is a hot topic now with batman vs superman looking more and more like a Justice League preview at the very least, I have decided to update my fancast. I added two heroes to my list for a total of seven instead of my original five and I have added confirmed castings to the list. I think that I am going to continue in this manner until we have the entire official cast for the movie just before it films. So, without further ado, my choices for the Justice League:
Superman - Henry Cavill
This is a given since he just starred in Man of Steel and I personally think that he did an awesome job personifying both Clark Kent and Superman’s personalities.
Batman - Ben Affleck
Ben has matured quite a bit since his turn as Daredevil and I think he will do well as Batman given the right script or at least some flexibility to improvise from the director.
Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot
Known for Entourage and the Fast & Furious Franchise, Gal is a Former Ms. Israel who went all the way to the Ms. Universe pageant in 2004. A lot of people dislike her casting as WW because of her build, but I say that if she can act well enough to do the character justice then they have CGI, Implants, and/or Falsies to take care of the rest. Give the woman a chance.
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) - David Boreanaz
The fact that David did such a good job on Buffy the Vampire Slayer that he got his own spin-off series, Angel and seeing him play on bones should put him on anyone's shortlist to play Hal Jordan, not to mention that he looks the part.
Flash (Barry Allen) - Jensen Ackles
Best known for Supernatural, Jensen has played on Smallville, Days of our Lives (getting several Emmy Nominations) and Dark Angel among other roles and I think he would be a great Flash regardless of which alter ego they use in the movie.
Aquaman - Chris Pine
After watching Chris play Captain Kirk on the Star Trek re-boot as well as his turns in This Means War and Unstoppable I can't see anyone else playing the part of the Sea-King then Chris Pine.
Martian Manhunter - Peter Mensah
If you don't know who Peter Mensah is then you should rent 300, Hidalgo, or even True Blood and you'll see why I think he has the build and the talent to play Martian Manhunter.
There you have it, my updated cast for a purposed Justice League Movie. What do you think? Am I on the right track or do you have a better list of actors for the job? as always comment below and follow me on [email protected]
