I did this for Batman villains; now I am going to Fan-cast many different roles for the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). There are a LOT, of possible characters that could appear in this film universe so I'm gonna try and do my best at this. I will do this in multiple parts if I have to. These are 10 picks for Part 1:
Charlie Hunnam - Green Arrow
Alright! I'll go with everybody else! Charlie Hunnam would actually be a great choice for Green Arrow because of look, presence, and of course.... the giant fan petition that someone started. In the beginning, I had said Matthew Mcconaughey would've been a great choice, but now I've saved him for something else.
Emily Kinney - Batgirl/Oracle
Just recently I viewed another moviepilot blog that gave 10 possible suggestions for who should play Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle in the DCEU. This is the link here if you want to view it and make your own opinion. There are good choices: some I thought were too old, some I thought were too well-known. I decided to go with the one who I thought could pull off Barbara, Batgirl or Oracle and that it would help skyrocket their career. That would be Emily Kinney (The Walking Dead, The Flash). I saw Kinney play another DC role on the Flash TV series as a villain known as The Bug-Eyed Bandit. She could look good fighting in a Bat suit or working behind the scenes at the Bat Computer.
Matthew Mcconaughey - Deadman
Mcconaughey has been in talks with Marvel and DC but at the current moment has not signed with either one. A lot of people have fancasted Mcconaughey in a bunch of well-known lead roles; but I have would think he would make a great version of Deadman from Dark Universe. The facial symmetry is there, and Deadman is such a tragic character that Mcconaughey can make the audience really feel for.
Matt Ryan - John Constantine
I will say exactly what I said from my previous blog; since Constantine was cancelled and I think his performance was so great, I would bend the rules a little bit and cast Matt Ryan as Constantine in the film adaptation of Dark Universe.
Hugh Laurie - Thaal Sinestro
I actually agree with this fan-cast as well. Sinestro is very sinister and intelligent villain and Hugh Laurie could totally pull off the look, voice and personality of the Guardian of fear. Mark Strong was a great choice for Sinestro back in 2011, it just the Green Lantern movie was just so bad. Sorry.
Sigourney Weaver - Queen Hippolyta
Diana's mother, Hippolyta; the queen of Themyscira, should be played by a well known actress and I believe Sigourney Weaver would be an excellent choice. She has proven herself as the female hero in the 4 Alien films and this would be a great film to pass on to the next gen of lead female heroes.
Rachel Weisz - Zatanna
Come on! Look at that face! She is Zatanna! Just add a Top-hat.
Famke Janssen - Cheetah
Cheetah was a hard one to pick but because of her villainous roles in Goldeneye and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Famke Janssen would be a great choice, and now that her days with Marvel seem to be over, a nice transition to DC would be great.
Jake Gyllenhaal - Ares
This one actually surprises me, and I'm the one who picked him! There has been some discussion on Jake Gyllenhaal being apart of the DCEU after he was offered the role of Rick Flagg after Tom Hardy opt out. From his performance in Nightcrawler and the ways he looks in the upcoming Southpaw, he could actually make the God of War Ares a role to remember.
Ian McShane - Vandal Savage
Not based upon the picture above, but Ian McShane would make a truly menacing and devious Vandal Savage. This casting of Savage is for the Movie universe and not the upcoming CW's Legends of Tomorrow. They will probably choose a much younger person to gain more similarities with its target audience.
Stay tuned for the next DC Fan-cast!
