    Default Who should play X in comic book movie Y?

    Well the title says it all. Pick and actor to be a superhero, or supervillain. I think its best to avoid the current crop of them since I think overall they did a good job. If you disagree come up with a better actor. For now we need to avoid Superman since I think that Brandon Routh will do well depicting the man of steel.

    If you can find a pciture (preferably a small one or a link to a big one) go ahead and share.

    Feel free to rewrite any of the crummy Batman movie villains.

    So to start:

    Harley Quinn - Jennifer Tilly
    For me its the voice. I think that would go over very well. For those not familiar with Harley, check the link.

    Daredevil/Matt Murdock should have been played by Matthew McConaughey.

    Tilly would be a great Harley Quinn, especially if they could ever get Robin Williams to play Joker. Or just have Mark Hamill play a live action Joker, I just love the cartoon Joker's voice.

    Maybe, just a thought, Matt Damon as Cap?

    Johnny Knoxville as Plastic Man.

    Steven Seagall as Morlun.

    Silver Surfer (FF2) - Jason Statham

    That's who I'd most like to see cast in that role - but more than likely they're going to go with a more popular / muscular bald guy like Vin Diesel or something.

    And, on the off chance they do a 4th X-Men movie (which I don't think they should) and cast Apocalypse and the 4 Horsemen...

    Apocalypse - Michael Madsen
    Death - [Gotta Use (Arch)Angel from X-3]
    War - Scott Schwartz
    Famine - Diane Kruger
    Pestilence - Christoper Lloyd (I think of Pieces from "Thing to do in Denver when you're Dead")

    I acutally quite like the idea of Damon as Cap... He's got that "All-American" quality you imagine Cap having.

    I see what you mean about Meg Tilly's voice. I think she cold probably pull off the personality too.

    I actually liked Nicholson as the Joker. I'm not sure if Hamil could pull it off or not. I'm also not at all sure about Brandon Routh as Superman. I guess as Clark Kent he does seem to resemble Christopher Reeve's portrayal, but Routh seems to fall short as Superman, at least based on the trailers.

    I've seen the trailer, and to be honest, he seems looks quite good.
    Though, I haven't read any Ghostrider other than a freaking awesome Spidey/Ghostrider crossover.

    Uma Thurman, as anything really. Throw a wig on her and she can play just about any role. She's bloody amazing.

    For Harley Quinn I'd like to see the woman who played Callisto on Xena (Hudson Leick).

    I think Halle Berry would make a great Catwoman... Oh, wait...

    WonderWoman: Catherine Zeta Jones. She just seems perfect for the part to me. I don't know why.

    I agree except for one thing: The height.

    In the comics she's supposed to be 6' tall. Although, I think with the magic of movies, a 5'7" Zeta-Jones will more than suffice :).

    You know it's more than likely they'd cast Liv Tyler as Wonder Woman though... I hate hollywood sometimes.

    In my book, Lucy Lawless would be the perfect WonderWoman. I mean isn't she just a modern Xena?

    Oh, and Will Smith for the Green Lantern. Mmmmm...

    Nah. Keep her as a Cylon. She's been doing good in that job.

    I'm not sure about Catherine Zeta Jones as Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is good looking but not seductive, and I've yet to see Catherine Zeta Jones play a character without coming across as seductive. Basically in the TV ads she does for that phone company she's selling sex.

    I could sort of see Lucy Lawless as Wonder Woman but she's so associated with Xena that I think it would be hard to separate the two. I'm still not sure what I think of her as a cylon even. I think she's so stereotyped as Xena that it's really hard to see her as anything else--perhaps she's just not a sufficiently talented actress.

    Now Hudson Leik I can definitely see as Harley Quinn. There is something off with every character she plays, and that sense of offness would work perfectly as Quinn. Please though spare us from Liv Tyler as Wonder Woman!

    I could see Will Smith as a Green Lantern, but as a new Green Lantern, not as John Stewart. I just don't see Smith as hard and cynical enough for John Stewart. I wouldn't mind, however, seeing Smith play a new, more light-hearted black Green Lantern.

    Just think how much cooler (no pun intended) Mr. Freeze could have been if played by Patrick Stewart instead of the Governator.

    Oh, and Wil Wheaton as Robin. He's still got such a baby face.

    Wow, you have some wild ideas, Ms Otter! :D I really liked Ahhhhhnold as Mr. Freeze, though I'm sure that Patrick Stewart could do a good job as he is so amazingly versatile.

    Wil Wheaton as Robin? Hmm. Does anyone remember him in Stand by Me? He put in an excellent performance. Which Robin would he be? I mean, he's probably too old to be a Robin, but maybe Night Wing?

    Later on yesterday evening, after my post re: Wil Wheaton, by pure coincidence, I ran across this wonderful picture:

    It's out there in many places, so I'm sure others have seen it. I just think it's absolutely hilarious. Does this disqualify him for Robin?

    Hmm. I think I could see him as the Tim Drake Robin, if he's still young enough. He might be too old now.

    Let's just pretend we never saw that. ;)

    I still say he's too old now to play Robin. Night Wing maybe.

    Micheal Keaton as Judge Dredd. His portrayal of Batman is just the anti-hero-in-uniform that's needed.
