Cautiously optimistic about future comic book movies.

Casting is impossible. This is really only doable by the creators which at this point is Producer: Akiva Goldsman. But I'll give who I think should be in the movie. This movie needs to be made before [Justice League](movie:401267) in 2018.

Dick Grayson: Robin/Nightwing

Dick Grayson is obviously the leader of TT/YJ. I have an idea for his costume. Let's say this is a 4-part movie series. If it ends up a trilogy, put what I'm about to say into proportion with that. For the first 3 out of 4 movies he should look like this:

Nightwing New 52 suit
Nightwing New 52 suit

As Robin, this version of the Nightwing suit will give Dick Grayson the young color of red without those 60's yellow tights.

For the last movie, it can show how Dick evolves himself into the lone-wolf, more mature role of Nightwing, appearing in the standard blue:

Nightwing's official blue suit

But Robin/early Nightwing is not that hard to pick. Personally, I think Asa Butterfield from Hugo and Ender's Game could do an exceptional job:

Moving on from the Boy Wonder, we have the Cadmus Clone, Conner Kent. Also known as Superboy:

There's not much to it. The only thing we don't want is:

80's Superboy . . . ew!
80's Superboy . . . ew!

This next suit differs a lot from the regular black T-shirt in the Young Justice show:

Superboy from: idk when...
Superboy from: idk when...

This suit differs from YJ, enough so that it doesn't look exactly like the cartoon. We've already seen him like that! Plus, it looks cool. And not too 80's for modern movies like Man of Steel.

Next up, we have everyone's close-second favorite Flash (or at least my close-second favorite Flash), Wally West! The original Kid Flash!

There's really not much you can change from the cartoon. He's perfect!

But if you wanted a (much) cooler movie look, then you've got one:

Kid Flash
Kid Flash

Honestly, not sure if this is Wally or Bart. But if Bart were to appear in the movie(s), it would be WAY too much like the cartoon. We need a new, fresh origin story that is loosely based off the show's personal route. But this suit is just badass!

And now, the sidekick to the most put-down superhero of all time ever: Aqualad! Kaldur'ahm or Jackson Hyde/Garth (I don't know his human name)

I'm not sure if he should look like he does in the show; badass:

Aqualad, Young Justice
Aqualad, Young Justice

Or if he should look close to the original:

Aqualad

Yeah, probably not that one...

Moving on to the coolest green animal shape shifter, Garfield Logan, Beast Boy!

I personally think he shouldn't look like he does in the classic cartoon:

Beast Boy, Teen Titans (2003)
Beast Boy, Teen Titans (2003)

Believe me, I love 2003 Beast, but personally I think he looks better in Young Justice and I think that's how he should look:

Beast Boy, Young Justice (2010)
Beast Boy, Young Justice (2010)

But I'm all for sticking with the classic Greg Cipes voice from 2003 and sticking into the movie!

And now for the half-robot/half-human, Cyborg!

Now Cyborg is a bit on the older side so he is a bit easier to cast:

Chadwick Boseman
Chadwick Boseman

Though he may be a bit too old, Chadwick Boseman is believable as Cyborg. But if you disagree, maybe he would be better as him in the Justice League movie.

But this is how I think Cyborg should look:

Cyborg, New 52
Cyborg, New 52

Honestly, he doesn't HAVE to be in it. I just liked him in the 2003 show and his bromance with Beast Boy. But if you guys think he would be better as a bit of an older character in the Justice League movie, I'm fine with that too.

Now it's time to get some girls into the mix. Raven, not to her:

Raven
Raven

But SCREW the New 52 Raven! No way we're going with that:

Raven, New 52 . . . ew!
Raven, New 52 . . . ew!

Now, here's Starfire:

Starfire: New 52
Starfire: New 52

Not a lot to her either, except for those huge...eyes. Those huge eyes. Love em.

Red Arrow/Roy Harper:

Red Arrow, Young Justice
Red Arrow, Young Justice

I think he should stay the same, his voice, his look, his personality. They should really make him like the Raphael of the Teen Titans/Young Justice.

Now there can be several cameos for more character in sequels. But in the end credits for the third one or the whole fourth one, can be centered on the new Robin (Tim Drake) and new Kid Flash (Bart Allen) because Barry Allen may die in one of the JLA movies making Wally the new Flash. And others like Powergirl and Batgirl and Blue Beetle and Artemis (still with Wally though, not Bart)

Thanks for your time. I will probably make a post with ideas for plot and cameos for these series of movies. Thanks! - Sam
