So, a very large portion of the talk now a days in the super hero movie biz is Justice League. According to IMDB, it is set to release in 2017 and will be written by David S. Goyer, the writer of The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel. Also he wrote for an extensive list of video games including Metal Gear Solid and Call of Duty. He also has many other movies under his belt like Blade and Jumper. So we know this guy is pretty darn good. So far the only cast member officially chosen is Gal Gadot as Diana of Themyscira/Wonder Women. So here is the actors/actress I think would fit the parts of the [Justice League](movie:401267) wonderfully.

Clark Kent/Superman

As for Superman, I'd say just to stick with Henry Cavill. He did very well in [Man of Steel](movie:15593) and it will be exciting to see how well he does in [Batman vs. Superman](movie:711870). He fits the character very well right down to chin and hair that is a Superman trademark, so he is my pick for the big mans spot.

Bruce Wayne/Batman

Now it is time for the most controversial casting. It is a huge topic right now with Christian Bale rejecting his role as Batman claiming, "The torch of acting as Batman must be handed on to a new actor." It was a sad day for me when I learned that Bale would never again be Batman for I truly was amazed by his performance as Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy. So, if it was at all possible to cast Christian Bale as Batman in Justice League, that would be mint. But as I know that Bale is fairly sure about his decision with no more Batman, I am a bit undecided. This is because I haven't seen how Ben Affleck will perform as Batman in Batman vs Superman and I won't till 2015. But since Snyder saw something in him, I guess he would be my number one choice for now. But I also believe that Joel Edgerton of Warrior would perform this role very well. He has the brain and brawn for the part and has a naturally good voice for the part as well.

Diana of Themyscira/Wonder Women

For the role of [Wonder Woman](movie:45787), I believe that the casting of Gal Gadot was very good. She is known for her fantastic performance in The Fast and Furious series in which she played Gisele. She seems to fit this part very well as she is both beautiful but has the face that can show that she is in power and will not back down. Some people believe Megan Fox would fit this part but I believe she has just to much of a girly look and attitude, Wonder Women is practically a man and really doesn't care for beauty a whole lot, her beauty comes naturally as she is of Themyscira.

Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

For the Green Lantern casting, I am against Ryan Reynolds as many of you probably are as well. He just didn't show the right charisma for the part in the Green Lantern film. So I would want Jenson Ackles(Supernatural) or Nathan Fillion(Castle). These two guys have showed a true skill for acting and action acting at that. Jenson Ackles would have that younger Green Lantern look, possibly still becoming accustom to his powers and Nathan Fillion could play an experienced Green Lantern who is all business and knows what his is capable of. I would say Jenson Ackles as first choice just because I think he is a better action actor than Fillion but no disrespect to Fillion, he is great.

Barry Allen/The Flash

For this part of The Flash you need someone who can both be all business but also be funny and goofy as well. For this reason I think Chris Pine would fit the part perfectly. He for sure has the look, he could maybe make his hair lighter with a reddish tint, but other wise he fits great. He also shows that he can be goofy while in the most intense of situations as seen in his role as Captain Kirk in the Star Trek films. He just seems to fit and with his name being loved by the ladies he would surely bring in some untargeted audiences.

J'onn J'onzz/Martian Manhunter

This part is very complicated and is a slightly difficult one to find. The person who plays this part should have a good, deep voice and be very serious, no nonsense type person. Now, if James Earl Jones was younger and slimmer he would be perfect, but sadly he is not. So that it why I believe Chiwetel Ejiofor would be just great for this part. He showed he has a natural ability to act with his dramatic performance in 12 Years a Slave. His voice fits very good for the part with his deep tone and a scent of an accent in it, his voice fits very good. He may need to work more on his diction but that would come. An added plus is that his face is shaped very much like Martian Manhunter's so that just adds on to his perfectness for this role.

Arthur Curry(Orin)/Aquaman

For this part, a guy would need to be slimmer but still muscular and preferably blond. That's why Alexander Skarsgard fits this part perfectly. He has that lean build to him and has dirty blond hair color. He just seems to fit the part to me and has showed he knows how to act with his performance in Battleship.
