A casting of many characters in the DC universe, from the elite, to the obscure.

Though I am not able to cover every character I want to in this article, I may continue it in the future, depending on the feedback.

Batman / Bruce Wayne

Adam Baldwin

Claim to fame: Chuck, Serenity

Adam is known for his roles of characters who tend not to show a lot - if any - emotion. Not only have we seen him share the Dark Knight's physique, but also the character's personality.

Green Lantern / Hal Jordan

Jensen Ackles

Claim to fame: Supernatural, Batman: Under the Red Hood

Jensen Ackles has excelled in showing us he is not to be taken lightly. From battling creatures in Supernatural, to voicing the sidekick with a vengeance in Batman: Under the Red Hood.

Wonder Woman

Joanne Kelly

Claim to fame: Warehouse 13

Joanne Kelly has proved herself worthy of the role of the amazonian princess Wonder Woman, on her show, Warehouse 13. Joanne's character on the show is a by the book FBI agent, who has continuously proved herself as a leader. In my personal opinion, Joanne Kelly has the acting skill to take on this role.

Hawk Girl / Shayera Hol

Jessica Chastain

Claim to fame: Zero Dark Thirty

Jessica Chastain's performance as Maya in Zero Dark Thirty blew audiences away, but also showed her acting capabilities. I personally can not think of a better person for this role.

Nightwing / Dick Grayson

Ben Barnes

Claim to fame: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Stardust

As Prince Caspian, Ben constantly portrayed a hero, someone who would take action. He also showed his skill in weaponry, through sword fighting, and other action sequences.

Martian Manhunter

Djimon Hounsou

Claim to fame: Heroes, Push

Characters with telepathy is nothing new for Djimon Hounsou. His character in the show Heroes could read minds and even erase memories.


Olivia Thirlby

Claim to fame: Juno, Dredd

In Dredd, Olivia Thirlby plays Cassandra Anderson, a telepath and judge to be. This role alone proves her to be the best choice to play Raven.

The Riddler

Matt Bomer

Claim to fame: Chuck, White Collar

Matt's character in White Collar is a con man who constantly wild and elaborate schemes, those of which the Riddler would.

Oracle / Barbara Gordon

Allison Scagliotti

Claim to fame: Warehouse 13

On Warehouse 13, Allison plays Claudia Donovan, a wittty and whimsical computer hacker and technological genius. The similarities between Claudia and Oracle are remarkable.
