The DC universe is getting started, and they've got their entire slate of films through 2020 planned out, which includes favorites like ' Suicide Squad', 'Green Lantern', and of course, 'Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice'. And while they have cast many actors and actresses in different roles, there are still many actors/actresses and roles to be filled. So without further ado, here are ten actors who should be in the DCEU.

(Remeber, this list is in no particular order)

#1 - Nathan Fillion

Come on, you guys probably saw this coming from a mile away, and for good reason, too. You see, not only has he expressed interest at being in the DCEU, but he's even been in a few DC films before, where he voiced Green Lantern. Now, you could cast him as Green Lantern, or you could cast him as the character he wants to play: Booster Gold. And who wouldn't want to see that?

And on a related note, do you think we could get Fazzi Bear in the DCEU, too? No? Oh, well, not all dreams can come true.

#2 - Dylan O'Brien

Dylan O'Brien is quickly becoming an A-list actor, due in part to the 'Maze Runner' series. At first, he was a fan favorite for Spider-Man, but that never happened, unfortunately. However, many fans now look to DC for this up an coming actor to finally become an A-lister, by possibly even playing Red Hood or an entirely different character. No matter which role you think would be good for him, we can all agree that he must be in the DCEU.

#3 - Anna Kendrick

She's not the most popular name in Hollywood, but she is easily recognized. Anna Kendrick has played in both Pitch Perfect films and played Cinderella in last year's 'Into the Woods'. She has yet to star as a action hero (or villain), but she most definitely deserves to. I could see her giving us a [email protected]$$ Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle, couldn't you?

#4 - Armie Hammer

This guy has tried being many superheroes, including Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy, but it never came to be. But now, I think it's time for his dream to come true. He obviously has the experience to do it, so come on, DC, cast him as someone. Nightwing, Red Hood, Red Arrow, or almost any other character would be right up his alley. I'd even put him up for Ra's all Ghul, possibly.

#5 - Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt is on of the biggest names in Hollywood right now, and she definitely deserves it! She has played alongside acting great Tom Cruise in 'Edge of Tomorrow', a role in 'Into the Woods', and in 'The Devil Wears Prada'. She may be rumoured and open to playing Captain Marvel in the MCU, but you never know, maybe that rumour will never happen, and we could see her in the DCEU.

#6 - Jensen Ackles

Although he hasn't made the jump to the big screen yet, the DCEU could be his big break. He's gained a huge fan following because of his role as Dean Winchester on CW's 'Supernatural', and everyone wants to see this guy in a movie. Can't you just see a Green Arrow or perhaps, staying closer to what he's familiar with, John Constantine?

#7 - Katie McGrath

She is mostly known as a model, but she has recently taken on acting roles, most notably playing Morgana in 'Merlin' and Zara in the huge success, 'Jurassic World'. Some may consider her as too young of an actress, but she has proven herself to be a good actress. So I definitely want to see her in the DCEU, my choice being Talia al Ghul.

#8 - Ty Simpkins

Ty Simpkins, like Dylan O'Brien, is an up and coming actor, who has recently made a name for himself by starring in 'Iron Man 3' and 'Jurassic World'. Now, he is only fourteen, so I can't think of many roles he could be as of right now, but say in like six or so years, DC says "Let's make a Batman Beyond movie", I'd totally be down for Ty Simpkins to play as Terry McGinnis. Or alternatively, he could play Billy Batson in 'Shazam'.

#9 - Michael B. Jordan

Michael B. Jordan is an experienced actor, playing in a plethora of film, from this year's 'Fantastic Four' as Human Torch, 'Red Tails', and in the 2014 film 'That Awkward Moment', in which he starred alongside Zac Efron and Miles Teller. There are so many black superheroes from DC he could be, such as Black Lightning, John Stewart, Mr. Terrific, and even Steel.

#10 - Alexandra Daddario

Alexandra Daddario is also an her way to stardom, by playing in films like the Percy Jackson franchise and the recent film 'San Andreas', where she starred with Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson and Carla Gugino. A fan favorite character fans have been demanding to see is Zatanna, and I believe Alexandra can pull it off. But if there's no Zatanna in the DCEU, there are still more, like Black Canary and Starfire she could bring to the big screen.

So that's my list for ten actors and actresses I want in the DCEU, but I want to know: do you think these actors should be in the DCEU, and which roles would you lime to see these actors in? Comment below and let me know! (Hey that rhymed!)


Which actor/actress do you want to see in the DCEU?
