Welcome to part 2 of my DC fan cast. If you haven't checked out my fan cast of the bat-family, you can find it here. To recap, I have tried to cast as many DC characters as I could think of and I have turned those choices into a series where a new instalment is introduced every week. These choices are ones that are possible in the current DCCU so characters like Cyborg which have already been casted will not appear. I have also tried not to repeat actors.
To be honest, I was surprised that the Teen Titans were chosen but I'm guessing people just loved the original series. Also, characters that are or have been sidekicks to characters like Superman and the Flash will not show up on this list as they will feature in their respective superhero's list. Without further ado here is my Teen Titans fan cast:
Raven first appeared in DC Comics Presents #26 in 1980. Raven is an empath who can teleport and control her 'soul self'. Raven was not a founding member of the Teen Titans but was featured heavily in the Teen Titans TV show. She is a current member of the New 52 team after their relaunch last year.
Rooney Mara is a very talented actress and I can see her pull off Raven easily. Her role in 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' proves her ability to portray dark, three-dimensional characters struck with tragedy. She has the look and acting chops to pull off Raven.
Starfire first appeared in DC Comics Presents #26 in 1980. As with Raven, Starfire was not an original member of the Teen Titans but was featured heavily in the Teen Titans cartoon. In the show Starfire was involved in a romantic relationship with her teammate, Robin. Currently, Starfire is not a part of the Teen Titans, instead being a part of Red Hood and the Outlaws.
Kate Mara is an extremely talented actress who will portray Sue Storm in the upcoming film, 'Fantastic Four'. Being Rooney Mara's sister, the both of them could have some really interesting scenes which plays around with their character's and their real life relationships. If 'House of Cards' proves anything it's that Kate Mara has the acting ability to play Starfire.
Beast Boy debuted in Doom Patrol #99 in 1965. Beast Boy also was not a founding member of the Teen Titans yet was a main character in the Teen Titans cartoon. Beast Boy was also a part of Young Justice's second season. His controversial change to red skin happened in the New 52 but was quickly changed back to green due to unpopular opinion.
Jacob Lofland has proven to be a great actor for someone his age. His role in 'Mud' is what convinced me of his talent. I have no doubt that Lofland can pull of the childish charm that Beast Boy expresses. If you ask me, I'd go as far as to say Lofland even looks a lot like Beast Boy himself.
Miss Martian first appeared in Teen Titans #37 in 2006. For a relatively new character, Miss Martian has gained mainstream popularity from her role in the first season of Young Justice. Being a Martian, Miss Martian shares most of her powers with the Justice League member, Martian Manhunter.
Anna Kendrick is a very capable actor whose acting ability has been showcased in 'Pitch Perfect' and other roles. She looks young and I am convinced that she can pull off the naivety that Miss Martian is known for. As an added bonus, we get to see Anna Kendrick painted green.
Deathstroke debuted in New Teen Titans #2 in 1980 as Deatstroke the Terminator. Since then Deathstroke has become a mainstream anti-villain through other media such as cartoon and video games. Deathstroke has recently been portrayed by Manu Bennet in Arrow and is rumoured to be played by Joe Manganiello in Suicide Squad.
Sean Bean is well known for his roles in 'Game of Thrones' and the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy. He's become an internet sensation for being the guy who dies in all his movies. He has proven he can play an intimidating villain in GoldenEye and it's not hard to see him play Deathstroke.
Cheshire first appeared in New Teen Titans Annual #2 in 1983. Cheshire has been portrayed in both Teen Titans and Young Justice. She is known for having a child with Roy Harper which was translated to the small screen in the second season of Young Justice.
Grace Park is most recognised for her role in 'Hawaii Five-0'. She proves her acting ability on the show and definitely looks the part. She has the acting ability to pull off an interesting villain that can be intimidating and charismatic.
Brother Blood first appeared in New Teen Titans #21 in 1982. There have been several people who have taken up the mantle of Brother Blood but the most mainstream character is the one portrayed on Arrow by Kevin Alejandro.
Admittedly, I have not seen much of Joseph Morgan to now his true capabilities but I do know that Morgan can play a terribly good villain. He is renowned for his role as Klaus in 'Vampire Diaries' and their spin off show 'The Originals'. He looks like an intimidating person so I think he'd make a great Brother Blood.
The Rose Wilson Ravager first appeared in Deathstroke #15 in 1992. Being Deathstroke's illegitimate daughter, Rose wanted to be just like her father so she stabbed herself in her eye and took on the persona of Ravager. Summer Glau played a version of this character on Arrow.
Most people will know Taylor Momsen from 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' as the cute little Cindy Lou Who. She now leads her own band and has gotten rid of her good girl image. I have not seen her in anything recently so I have no comment on how she would act in the part but if her look and recent behaviour is anything to go by, she could pull of crazy and obsessive easily.
There is my Teen Titans fan cast. I know most of you were expecting Robin or Kid Flash but they will appear soon, don't worry. I hope you guys agree with at least 1 or 2 of my choices and I look forward to creating more of these articles for you guys.
