“ Clark Kent / Kal-El / Superman
He's already Superman and did an alright job. ” - bluefalcon60893

Gemma Arterton
Gemma Christina Arterton was born in Gravesend, Kent, England, where she was raised. She is the daughter of Sally-Anne (Heap), a cleaner, and Barry J. Arterton, a welder. Her mother's cousin is singer-songwriter Eric Goulden. Her parents divorced when she was age five, and Gemma subsequently lived with her younger sister and her mother...
“ Diana Prince / Wonder Woman
Gemma absolutely needs to play a superhero. With her talent and her looks she could play Wonder Woman amazingly. She has experience in action films so this shouldn't be a problem. No one would question the similarity in their looks and it would be amazing to see her as any superhero really. This was my hardest choice by far. I flip flopped between Erin Cummings, Adrianne Palicki, Amanda Righetti and Gemma. With Gemma obviously winning. ” - bluefalcon60893

Bradley Cooper
Cooper garnered consecutive Oscar nominations from 2013 to 2015 for his roles in the romantic comedy Silver Linings Playbook (2012), the comedy-drama American Hustle (2013), and the biographical war drama American Sniper (2014). For producing American Sniper, Cooper also received an Academy Award for Best Picture nomination...
“ Hal Jordan / Green Lantern
He'd do great as Hal. He'd certainly do better than Ryan Reynolds. They need to recast the part anyways. Reynolds doesn't even want to do it anymore. So Cooper would be awesome. He can be very funny and provide comic relief if necessary. He actually auditioned for the Green Lantern movie but lost to Reynolds. Reportedly he was offered the role of Wally West by WB as well. However, I think he'd make a better Hal. ” - bluefalcon60893

His mother, Eve, is from Ghana and had a clerical duty. Idris attended school in Canning Town, where he first became involved in acting. He gained a place in the National Youth Music Theatre - thanks to a £1,500 Prince's Trust grant...
“ John Stewart / Green Lantern
There's really only one person I'd want for John Stewart and that's the great Idris Elba. He'd would be amazing. Of course that is only if the studio decides to go the John Stewart route instead of Hal Jordan. It's possible they just cut out Hal because the Green Lantern movie was bad and they don't want to recast Hal or even use him again. ” - bluefalcon60893

Jason Momoa
Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa was born on August 1, 1979 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He is the son of Coni (Lemke), a photographer, and Joseph Momoa, a painter. His father is of Hawaiian descent and his mother, who is from Iowa, is of mostly German ancestry. Jason was raised in Norwalk, Iowa by his mother. After high school...
“ Arthur Curry/Aquaman
Although Jason Momoa is not white, blonde or anything near what was expected to be cast. He is an intriguing choice. Many people were outraged or were upset but I thought on it and decided I actually like it. He was great in the Red Road and he portrayed one of the biggest badasses in recent history in Khal Drogo. Those two roles sold me on it. ” - bluefalcon60893

He'd worked for British Gas developing gas fields at Morecomb Bay and had done theatre in school. He comes from an academic family...
“ J'onn J'onzz / Martian Manhunter
Peter is one of my favorite black actors and someone more people should recognize. He's done on Spartacus so Peter would be a great choice. It was almost too easy to pick Peter. He's got good size (6'3") and his voice is sooo similar too how MM should sound. ” - bluefalcon60893

Charlie Hunnam
Charles Matthew Hunnam was born in Newcastle, England on April 10, 1980, to Jane (Bell), a business owner, and William Hunnam, a scrap metal merchant.

“ Oliver Queen / Green Arrow
I've seen other people choose him and for good reason. He's a phenomenal actor who looks just like Green Arrow so they should just go ahead and cast him now. ” - bluefalcon60893

Jon Bernthal
Jon Bernthal was born and raised in Washington D.C., the son of Joan (Marx) and Eric Bernthal, a lawyer. His grandfather was musician Murray Bernthal. Jon went to study at The Moscow Art Theatre School, in Moscow, Russia, where he also played professional baseball in the European professional baseball federation...
“ Katar Hol / Carter Hall / Hawkman
Jon deserves to break out into movie stardom because of how brilliant he was on the Walking Dead. He was undoubtedly the second most badass character on the show (behind Daryl of course). Since his time on the show is up then he could bring his talent to the big screen. ” - bluefalcon60893

Lauren Cohan
Lauren Cohan was born in 1982, in Philadelphia and lived in Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey during her childhood before moving to the United Kingdom.

Taylor Kitsch was born on April 8, 1981 in Kelowna, British Columbia...
“ Billy Batson / Shazam
Shazam is one of the few characters who can beat the crap out of Superman one on one. So it took me awhile to find someone I liked enough. I had to choose someone who could play a childish character because Shazam is a kid in a mans body. Taylor played a high schooler until he was 28. So that has to mean something. ” - bluefalcon60893

John Boyega
John Boyega is a British actor best known for playing Finn in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Boyega rose to prominence in his native United Kingdom for his role of Moses in the 2011 sci-fi comedy film Attack the Block, before attaining international recognition for his work as Finn in the seventh film of the Star Wars series...
“ Victor Stone/Cyborg
Cyborg is younger then the rest of the Justice League so I went with a promising young actor in John Boyega. Only if he can pull off an American Accent though. I've never seen Ray Fisher act so it's hard to decide if he's a good choice or not. He looks the part which always helps. ” - bluefalcon60893

Keith David
Actor, Platoon
Keith David was born Keith David Williams in New York City's Harlem district, and was raised in East Elmhurst, in the Queens section of the city. He is the son of Dolores (Dickenson), a New York Telephone manager, and Lester Williams, a payroll operations director. As a child, he realized he wanted...
“ Darkseid(Voice)
His voice sounds intellectual yet menacing at the same time. I think that's how Darkseid should be done. ” - bluefalcon60893

Cillian Murphy
Actor, Inception
Striking Irish actor Cillian Murphy was born in Douglas, the oldest child of Brendan Murphy, who works for the Irish Department of Education, and a mother who is a teacher of French. He has three younger siblings. Murphy was educated at Presentation Brothers College, Cork. He went on to study law at University College Cork...
“ Lex Luthor
Cillian is great at playing intelligent characters. He's a very believable leader and has a certain charm to him that Lex needs. I believe the best villains are the ones that have something likeable about them and Cillian's character's always do regardless of the role. Peaky Blinders was what really sold me on this choice (FYI the shows incredible I highly recommend it). ” - bluefalcon60893

Aidan Gillen
Aidan Gillen is an Irish actor. He is best known for portraying Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish in the HBO series Game of Thrones, CIA operative Bill Wilson in The Dark Knight Rises, Stuart Alan Jones in the Channel 4 series Queer as Folk, John Boy in the RTÉ Television series Love/Hate, and Tommy Carcetti in the HBO series The Wire...
“ Brainiac
I think Aidan could do a fantastic job as Brainiac. Personally I think Brainiac doesn't have to be a big guy. More of a intellectual kind of guy, not one who will fight the JL head on. Even if they go CG for Brainiac his voice will work great. If it's him in person then also great. ” - bluefalcon60893

Vin Diesel

“ Doomsday (Voice)
Vin has that very deep intimidating voice that Doomsday needs. He can do the motion capture for it too like how Mark Ruffalo did for the Hulk. ” - bluefalcon60893

Joe Manganiello

“ Slade Wilson/Deathstroke
Since he was rumored for the role it grew on me. I believe he can do it now. ” - bluefalcon60893

Dustin Clare
Dustin Clare is an award winning Australian actor. Dustin Clare made his feature debut opposite Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis in Fred Schepisi's The Eye of the Storm, which premiered at the Melbourne International Film Festival and screened in Special Presentation at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival...
“ Floyd Lawton/Deadshot
I had to, Gannicus is probably my favorite television character ever and I figured he's similar in a sense to Lawton. I honestly think casting Will Smith was a huge mistake. He's very limited in regards to range and nothing he's ever done is close to what Deadshot is. Dustin Clare plays the smart ass better than Smith. Dustin is actually believable when playing a badass like Lawton. Lawton has a certain humanity to him that Dustin portrayed in Gannicus. He also looks the part too. ” - bluefalcon60893

Rashida Jones

“ Talia Al Ghul
Basically just added Talia because she's one of the main and founding members to the Secret Society of Super Villains. Anyways, like I've said in my other fancasts she's got an exotic sexy look that Talia needs. She's a good actress and needs more big screen roles. ” - bluefalcon60893

Thomas Kretschmann
Actor, King Kong

“ Vandal Adg / Vandal Savage
Thomas has the look of an intellectual yet intimidating man. Vandal is a great leader just has the wrong intentions. Kind of reminds me of Ra's Al Ghul. Thomas has the look and feel for the character. Not to mention he's a great actor. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
22.
Mark Strong
British actor Mark Strong, who played Jim Prideaux in the 2011 remake of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is often cast as cold, calculating villains. But before he became a famous actor, he intended to pursue a career in law. Strong was born Marco Giuseppe Salussolia in London, England, to an Austrian mother and an Italian father...
“ Sinestro
This was pretty easy. He was one of the only bright spots in the Green Lantern movie and he should absolutely be cast for a JL movie. Sinestro isn't one of the main people in the SSoSV either. It's just they've already introduced this guy who would work well with the others in the group. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
23.
“ Teth-Adam/Black Adam
I know, I know he's not egyptian. However, he's polynesian just like The Rock(aka Dwayne Johnson) who was cast in the role already. I'll admit I've only seen Uli in Marco Polo. However, in that he showed more talent then Dwayne in any of his roles. Anyways, he does look similar to Black Adam. He's a big dude, and his character in Marco Polo was a straight badass so this shouldn't be hard for him. ” - bluefalcon60893

Luke Evans
Luke George Evans was born in Pontypool, Wales, and grew up in Aberbargoed, in the south of Wales. He is the son of Yvonne (Lewis) and David Evans. He moved to Cardiff at the age 17. He then won a scholarship to the London Studio Centre, and graduated in 2000. He starred in many of London's West End theatre productions...
“ The Joker
Not exactly a choice many would consider. However, Luke is a great actor who is quickly rising and soon to be an A-Lister. I can just see him as the Joker. Put the make-up on him and let him do his thing then voila you have the Joker. I like the Leto choice because he's a great actor however I prefer Luke more. ” - bluefalcon60893
