With Growing interest in the upcoming WB followup to 2013's Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, I decided as a first post to talk about the next step in DC Movie Universe.
First The films in DC Universe Consist of ONLY the following:
[Man of Steel](movie:15593)
[Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870)
1. Superman/Clark Kent/ Kal-EL
Henry Cavill has once again donned the iconic S Sheild and cape as the first public superhero. His next outing will have him tangled with the Amazon Princess and the ledgendary Dark knight as he deals witht he aftermath of the battle of metropolis and the execution of Zod. Hes still learning how to be a hero, but he learns others like him exsit.
2. Batman/Bruce Wayne
Now i know many are still angry but the man is the new Batman. As i said the Nolan Bat never exsisted in this world. In this world Bruce Wayne has been able to avenge his parents as the Batman and have a successful company. It has been stated that he has been in the game for a while and thus is older than the rookie superman. As a super detective and skilled martial artist this batmn has the tech and skill to go toe to toe with the superman.
3. [Wonder Woman](movie:45787)/Diana Prince/ Diana of Thermascara
Gal Gadot was a surprise addition that left a bitter taste in many a mouths. But this warrior princess brings beauty and booty kicking to the team. What Wonder Womans place in the world is not clear yet. In the comics she has been an ambassidor to the world of men, an agent of the secret DEO (Department of Extra Normal Operations) and a goddess. It is unclear which route DC and WB are planing on taking her. She will make her debut in some form in 2016 Batman vs Superman Movie.
As the trinity they are the three ost known and recognizable DC Characters. But as many know they do not fight alone.
4. Cyborg/Victor Stone
As we all know now Victor Stone has been cast by Stage actor Ray Fisher. A young unkown but could bring alot to the role of Cyborg a Role DC has been moving to making Cyborg a main hero, they have found that in this young man. Reports indicate that he will be turned into Cyborg in [Justice League](movie:401267). He will make an apperance in Batman V Superman.
5. Aquaman/Arthur Curry/Orin King of Atlantis
With the recent report of Momoa taking the iconic role as the king of the 7 seas...and not deny those rumors, many are taking to believe that this is confirmation. Now will he be the sleek new 52 Aquaman, the warmongering Flashpoint Emporer Aquaman or Bearded hooked handed Aquaman remains to be seen, but i wish him all th luck.
6 Green Lantern Corps Hal Jorden and John Stewart
Now for the two main men in green i decided that either or could and will benifit the dcmu. With the power to overcome great fear the green lanterns of sector 2814 are both proud memners of the Justice League with the skills to fight alongide the trinity.
I will not judge the merits of Jordan over John or vice versa.
....were you expecting Idris Elba? On of the things i see is WB looking to less known actors to fill the shoes of there main stars. I like Jenson as his main television commitment many be coming to an end, lets let him don the Green of Hal Jorden. As for Omari he seems to play varried roles, i think id rather stick to the same age group for all the cast.
That being said.....
5. The Flash/Barry Allen
For the Flash im torn. Part of me want Grant Gustin to don the suit he'll be wearing in The Flash tv show on the big stage but another part want to keep the two seperate.
Now im am not a fan of Wally West but i feel he or Barry could be used as the flash and add a bit of humor.
I know Pine is a popular fan cast, but really he is a talented Actor. His humor in Star Trek makes him good pick as he's no stranger to Action. Also on the more serious side his talent in Small Town Saturday Night really makes me think he could pull off the serious side of the flash.
Who else would you like to see?
