  • Casting for Future Marvel & DC Comics Movies

    With the summer movie tentpoles wrapping up for this year, I have a crazy idea for a discussion that might be fun. Let's focus on actors and share what roles from both comic book universes would be a good fit for a movie adaptation. I humbly ask a few things if you choose to participate...

    1. Please stay on topic with the actors being discussed. Just say what character you'd like to see portrayed by the actors being discussed, OR state why they are not a good fit for any comic book role and leave it at that.

    2. Please stay away from roles/characters that are already cast in the current cinematic universes and television shows.

    3. Think of this as a somewhat informal poll. I personally don't care to see people type a paragraph about why someone's opinion is wrong. It'd kinda be neat to see where someone might think that a certain actor would make a great Fin Fang Foom for Marvel but be a perfect Detective Chimp for DC. If you completely disagree, there's no need to get vaklempt and start calling people out on someone's opinion on the topic, even if they're being facetious.

    So without further adieu... Let's start with a two-fer and talk about Hollywood's most famous power couple: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

    What Marvel and/or what DC Comics characters do you think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could portray in a movie adaptation?

    DISCUSS!

    They would be perfect for the Wonder Twins! Zan and Jayna, maybe Andy Dick could be Gleek

      Actually I LOL'ed at this for all the "right" and "wrong" reasons. With that being said, I'm certain the line between "right" and "wrong" concerning the Wonder Twins is blurred beyond recognition. LOL

    I could see Brad Pitt playing Sgt Rock or Constantine from DC Comics. I could also see him playing Green Lantern. For Marvel, I could see him playing the Sentry.

    Angelina Jolie would make a good Silver Sable for Marvel. She would also be a good choice for Catwoman (especially in the next DC movie, where Batman has been a hero for over 20 years). She has expressed interest in the Catwoman role in the past.

    My two cents...

    Brad Pitt
    DC - Jason Blood (I'd want a different voice actor for Etrigan)

    Marvel - Viper/Madame Hydra (I have the feeling Viper in "The Wolverine" isn't Madame Hydra since Fox doesn't have the rights to Hydra characters.)

        I think Sean Bean would be a good Mr Sinister.

        Would make a cool Aquaman. Could also see him as a character from Asguard.

      Before we get any confirmations, let's take care of the elephant in the room: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

      Post a reply instead of a comment on what you think about any of the four mentioned celebrities thus far. I don't want to look like the only person keeping this thread alive, even though I probably am. LOL

      I'll play it safe and go with the majority of fanboy opinions on both brands for my casting picks because they're about as obvious to me as Patrick Stewart for Professor Charles Xavier or Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman IMHO. I'd love to see someone really think outside of the box on this one. I'm talking like Blue Devil or Cable outside of the box.

      Let's admit one other thing, Dwayne Johnson's involvement with both of these b-lister type characters ( or any character for that matter) would do nothing but make them the next big thing for the non-comics-reading masses much like what "Captain America: Winter Soldier" did for Bucky Barnes. Just throwing that out there.

        I think the Rock was born to play Black Adam.

        Yeah, well he's apparently locked in the Shazam movie, but they're just waiting for him to decide whether he wants to play Captain Marvel or Black Adam. Anyway, that's what I heard on the radio a few days ago. Of course, the DJs talking about it had no idea who either character is.
