Leonardo DiCaprio has never been in a comic book movie despite being rumored for many roles such as Robin, Spider-Man, and Captain America. Now that he's finally won his Oscar, DiCaprio should take some time to make a fun hero movie. The question is, should he be good or evil? I put together 8 villains and heroes Leo could play. It is up to you to decide which character you want him to portray!

Green Lantern vs. Green Goblin

How would you like to see DiCaprio portray Hal Jordan in the Justice League movies? People aren't very fond of the Green Lantern movie with Ryan Reynolds, but with Leo in the suit I feel like much of the worry would go away, not to mention he'd have no problem keeping up with the rest of the star studded cast. But what about Leo as Norman Osbourne? Nobody can play a likable villain like Leo. He's done it in Inception and Django, and I feel like he'd nail it as the antagonist to the young Spider-Man as he could play both the father figure and antagonist beautifully! It would also be appropriate considering Leo turned down the Peter Parker role many years ago.

Leonardo DiCaprio's Shazam vs. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Black Adam? Holy cow, where do I sign up? Seeing as Shazam is a kid that turns into a man, for better or worse, it wouldn't be all Leo. But how about The Riddler? The Riddler hasn't made a live action appearance since Jim Carrey played the character in 1995's Batman Forever. That is 21 years of absence for the great antagonist of Batman and something tells me with Leo portraying Edward Nygma we'd get a Heath Ledger like performance that would define the character for many years to come.

Green Lantern vs. Green Goblin

Constantine is a severely underrated hero and it doesn't help that every time they try to make a live action version, it fails miserably. With Leo at the helm it would be easy for everyone to fall in love with the antihero who occasionally works with Superman and Batman in the comics. It'd be a pretty sweet cameo at the very least. But what about Leo playing the antagonist to Taron Egerton's Eggsy in Kingsman 2? After all, Leo was rumored to be in the running for the villain in the first one, a role that ultimately went to Samuel L. Jackson. It would be extremely fun watching the rising star go up against the Oscar winner and would push Kingsman further into Bond-like territory!

Green Lantern vs. Green Goblin

The Green Arrow is already gaining popularity due to the show Arrow on CW. He could potentially join the Justice League as their version of Hawkeye from The Avengers, only Green Arrow is way cooler in my opinion. Inserting Leo as Arrow would immediately impact the Marvel and DC war, and would give DC a lot of buzz! Doctor Doom, on the other hand, is one of the greatest villains of all time, but the two times he's shown up in live action have been complete disasters. Nobody could play the villainous Victor Von Doom better than Leo, who has shown time and time again his ability to play eccentric, rich antagonists that you can't take your eyes off!

Be sure to vote for the character you'd love to see Leo play and if you don't see it above leave it in the comment section and I'll add the characters who are named the most to the next round!
