DC Extended Universe Fancasts

DC Extended Universe Fancasts

Everyone has in their mind who they’d like to see portray their favorite superhero on the big screen, and being the big DC Comics fanboy that I am, I thought it would be entertaining to compile some of my favorite choices for the roles that are not yet spoken for in the DCEU. These are just my opinions and not official news of any sort, although I wish they were.

Green Arrow / Oliver Queen : Charlie Hunnam

Let’s start off with an obvious one. Charlie Hunnam is probably one of the most popular superhero fan-castings on the internet, and for good reason. First of all, we’ve actually seen him with the famous pointy beard, so we know how well it works on him. I’m a big fan of maintaining comic book accurate appearances for the characters on the big screen (it helps you accept the actor as the character), and that won’t be a problem if they cast Hunnam. Secondly, he’s a very charismatic actor, which is something he’ll need to play the sarcastic, left-wing, billionaire crime-fighter. Hunnam played a very successful role in the hit TV show Son’s of Anarchy, and he more recently played the role of Arthur in the new King Arthur: Legend of the Sword movie.

Another thing I’ve considered for this casting is the current age range of the DCEU’s heroes. Charlie Hunnam is 37 years old, making him fit very well with the other actors age wise. At the time of this writing, Gal Gaot is 32 years old, Henry Cavill is 34, Jason Momoa is 38, and Ben Affleck is 45. DC is selling Cyborg (30) and the Flash (24) as the “young guns” for this universe, so you could cast a younger actor, but I think it makes more sense for Green Arrow to fit in with the larger group. People often consider Travis Fimmel for this role, and I can’t blame them. His work on Vikings was fantastic, and some of the aspects of his character Ragnar are much like Oliver Queen, but Hunnam just *feels* more like Green Arrow to me. Also, Hunnam has been working with Warner Bros. a lot lately, so maybe its just a matter of time?

 

Black Canary / Dinah Laurel Lance : Yvonne Strahovski

So, we started with Green Arrow, naturally we have to follow with his wife: Black Canary. Now, I wasn’t as sure about this casting when I first looked around, but the more I read about Yvonne Strahovski the more I liked her for the part, and she gets paired with Charlie Hunnam a lot in other fan-casts I’ve looked at, so why not? Strahovski was very popular in the TV shows Dexter and Chuck portraying strong characters in both, one being a CIA Agent, which I believe would lend well to playing Black Canary.

Strahovski likes to perform her own stunts and takes pride in the physical aspects of her roles, describing herself as “an athletic tomboy.” Some other reasons I like her, going back to appearances, is her comparative height and age to Gal Gadot, and her natural blonde hair and strong yet beautiful facial features which are perfect for Dinah Lance. Every studio seems to have a profile in which they cast actors and Strahovski fits in my opinion. Strahovski has also voiced Miranda Lawson in the Mass Effect video game series and Batwoman in the animated film Batman: Bad Blood (2016). Being previously involved with DC, no matter the capacity, is always a good sign when it comes to fan-casting.

 

 

Red Tornado : Alan Tudyk

This one is particularly fun for me because I’m not sure many people have done a Red Tornado fan cast, but I think he’s a pretty interesting character. Red Tornado is the result of a merge between an Android body and a benevolent sentient tornado from another universe. I realize out of context that might sound absurd, but trust me, read the comic. Red Tornado is capable of creating bursts of cyclone-force winds which enable flight, enhance speed, and create storms. Red Tornado can also integrate with computer systems to access information. He’s a lot like Marvel’s Vision, but unique and interesting in his own way.

I would like to see Alan Tudyk take on the role, and I think he’d be great. Tudyk portrayed an AI named Sonny in the movie I, Robot, and more recently K-2SO in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story so he’s no stranger to playing robots. Tudyk was involved with a failed DC Comics series called Powerless, which I hope makes this casting more plausible. His age (46) is the only “negative”, but most of what Red Tornado does may end up being CGI anyway, and if Ben Affleck can do it, why not Tudyk? This is one of my favorite fan-castings. There is so much about Alan Tudyk and his acting resume that makes sense for this role.

 

Martian Manhunter / J’onn J’onzz : Lance Reddick

Martian Manhunter, the imposing green wise-man from Mars who is remembered fondly by all those who grew up watching the early 2000’s Justice League animated series. I wish they hadn’t abandoned him in favor of Cyborg for the original team in the DCEU, but I understand that Cyborg may offer a more relevant arc and have more potential in the future, considering all the recent news about Nightwing and the Teen Titans. Still, I believe DC would be foolish not to include the last son of Mars at some point, and when they do I hope they cast Lance Reddick.

Lance Reddick has the stature (6′ 4″) and a voice that would be perfect for Martian Manhunter. If you’ve played the video game Destiny, then you’ve heard Reddick’s voice every you’ve talked with Commander Zavala. Reddick has also played a role in the TV show Fringe, both installments of John Wick, and is currently on the Amazon original show Bosch. He also has motion capture experience from portraying characters in the video games Horizon Zero Dawn and Quantum Break, which will definitely come in handy for playing our martian hero. Reddick is a strong actor, yet he flies under the radar a bit, which creates perfect opportunity for DC to cast him.

And those are some DC fan-castings, by yours truly. I’ll keep publishing articles like this, hopefully getting to every hero and villain likely to appear in an upcoming DCEU movie. I love imagining who might play my favorite characters. Until then…
