This is part 2 of Fan-cast of DC characters in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). This blog contains 8 picks:
Sam Elliott - General Wade Eiling
I know he's getting a bit old, but Sam Elliott has the voice and military general appearance that would make him an excellent choice for General Eiling. Elliott has already played 2 roles in Marvel films: Carter Slade in Ghost Rider, and General "Thunderbolt" Ross in 2003's Hulk. Since both films received negative reviews, maybe it's time to switch to a DC property instead. And if Eiling become the "Captain Nazi Super-soldier serum" version from Justice League Unlimited, then Elliott doesn't have to do the motion capture for the beast, he just has to do the voice, which would be equally menacing.
Andre Braugher - Martian Manhunter
Idris Elba, Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Mensah, and Dennis Haysbert all seem like pretty good choices for the role of J'onn J'onzz, also known as Martian Manhunter, but I decided to go with Andre Braugher (Glory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine). He's mostly known as a television actor but he can make a big screen appearance if he had the right role and I believe for the DCEU, J'onn J'onzz is that role.
Scarlett Johansson - Hawkgirl
I know she's a big deal in Marvel, but you never know! Scarlett Johansson may call it quits on Black Widow after Phase 3, opening up her possibilities to do other superhero roles. The DC role I would cast her in is that of one of Midway City's guardian protectors: Hawkgirl. She has the right voice and build and she looks good with Widow's hair colour. The only roadblocks are whether the DCEU will use Hawkgirl because of her upcoming appearance in the CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow. This is a two-way street cause Arrow wanted to use Harley Quinn, but the Suicide Squad movie grab her first. And speaking of which; because Suicide Squad seems to be partially set in Midway City, it is possible that the DCEU have already cast Hawkgirl and Hawkman for the movie; (whispering) they're just keeping a lid on it (shhh!!).
Channing Tatum - Shazam
This is another difficulty as Channing Tatum has already signed on with Marvel-Fox for the role of Gambit. But he has been increasing in the lead roles and he does possess the look, build, and humor to take on the role of Shazam. Which would be a reunion with G.I. Joe: Retaliation co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who is set to play Shazam's nemesis: the Anti-hero Black Adam.
Jackie Earle Haley - Doctor Sivana
My next choice is Jackie Earle Haley as the nefarious Doctor Sivana. Sivana is most notably the other archenemy of Shazam (as well as Black Adam). If the Shazam movie is to be between Shazam and Black Adam, then Dr. Sivana could be only a supporting enemy and then have him become the main adversary that forces Shazam and Black Adam to team up in order to stop him.
Ewan McGregor - Mirror Master
Now on to The Flash characters! The Flash has a lot of enemies so we'll see what I can do. Let's start off with Mirror Master! I think Ewan McGregor has a stage presence that really pull off the complexity of the Mirror Master. And since McGregor is Scottish, he could be the 2nd version of the Mirror Master which is Evan McCulloch.
Patrick Wilson - Reverse-Flash (Eobard Thawne/Professor Zoom)
Next up are the 2 versions of The Reverse-Flash, the archenemy of The Flash himself. He's the reverse because, well...like Cisco said "Yellow suit, red lightning, and totally evil." That is the opposite of the Flash. There are 2 main versions: first there is Barry Allen's Reverse-Flash: Eobard Thawne, who also goes by the name of Professor Zoom. We have already seen a TV version of Thawne, portrayed partially by Matt Letscher and mostly by Tom Cavanagh on the CW's The Flash. Now for a theatrical version, I would have to go with Insidious star Patrick Wilson because of his posture and resemblance to the character; not to mention a slight similarity to Cavanagh.
Michael C. Hall - Reverse-Flash (Hunter Zolomon/Zoom)
The next Reverse-Flash is the Wally West version: Hunter Zolomon, also known as just Zoom. Whereas Thawne abilities came from his speed, Zolomon's come from mostly time. He was injured by Gorilla Grodd, causing paralysis in his legs, and when he asked West to use the cosmic Treadmill to rupture the timeline just a little so he could get his legs back, West refused. This caused Zolomon to break into the Flash museum and use it himself. But his plan backfired and an explosion occurred causing him to rift through timelines given him his power of altering speed to time-travel, creating the effect of superspeed (If you don't understand what I said, that's okay, neither did I). Michael C. Hall (Gamer, Dexter) has been given experience to show his villainous side and the Zolomon version of Reverse-Flash would be one of best DC roles he could fit.
That's it! I Hope you agree! I've done the best that could do. See you with Part 3!
