My Ideal Justice League Cast and Crew

My picks for the biggest DC film of all time

Note: I would prefer the only heroes featured in the first film be Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Flash, Wonder Woman, and Hawkgirl. However, I picked a few others for sequels. I also think Darkseid should be the only villain in the first, but I picked a few more as well as some C.A.D.M.U.S. characters.

“ John Stewart/Green Lantern


Stewart is still the best GL. Plus, after Ryan Reynolds' miserable performance in 2011, the character needs a good actor to redeem him. ” - filmcritickevin

Timothy Olyphant
Actor, Justified
From Timothy Olyphant's first screen appearances, such as his two-minute bit in The First Wives Club, to "Nicko", whose presence at times dwarfed the island in A Perfect Getaway, he has been a force to be reckoned with.

“ Lex Luthor


This might seem an odd choice, but think about how great an actor he is, and how he looks in Hitman. It's hard to follow Kevin Spacey's performance in 2006, but I think Olyphant would fit in well with this cast. ” - filmcritickevin
