Who On Earth Could Warner Bros. Cast In Their 'Justice League' Movie?

The great success story of 2012, in the blockbuster world, has been "The Avengers," the superhero team-up movie that was the culmination of Marvel's multi-year plan since they started producing their own movies. As you might expect, the film's success means that Marvel's arch-rivals Warner Bros./DC Comics are pressing ahead with a movie of "Justice League," their own superhero team-up property. DC are owned outright by Time Warner, and as such, they have the advantage of having all of the characters -- Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman et al. -- under the same roof. But outside of the success of Christopher Nolan's standalone Batman movies (they won't be crossing over into any future efforts), Warner Bros. hasn't had much success with their own comic book movies.

"Superman" reboot "Superman Returns" was a damp squib six years ago, and 2011's "Green Lantern" was an outright flop, which set the franchise back, while an attempt at a fresh-faced "Justice League" movie directed by George Miller a few years ago was cancelled only weeks before shooting was meant to begin. But with Nolan's trilogy complete, a new Superman on the way (2013's "Man of Steel") and "The Avengers" proving a huge success, the studio is moving swiftly ahead with their plans. With a writer, "Gangster Squad" scribe Will Beall, hired last year, the studio was reportedly courting Ben Affleck to direct (he seems to have expressed little-to-no-interest in the idea, but it gives an idea of the kind of person that they're after). Only last week, Warners won a legal bout with the heirs of "Superman" creator Joe Shuster, which overcame one of the last major hurdles to the film. And the studio has pencilled in the movie for a 2015 release, putting it on a collision course with "The Avengers 2," which is already slated to come out that May.

Which begs a number of questions, even when you put aside the question of who'll actually direct the thing (do they go A-list, to a Guillermo del Toro or a Brad Bird, or do they gamble with an unlikely Marvel-esque pick like Joss Whedon or James Gunn?): Who are Warners going to cast as the heroes that make up the "Justice League"? Marvel's approach had its own risks, in terms of rolling the dice and hoping that Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth et al. would be able to draw audiences to relatively unknown characters, but Warners have a whole different headache on their hands (arguably as difficult a casting job as a tentpole movie has ever faced) as they essentially have to launch a half-dozen or so franchises simultaneously, with all of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the line-up likely to have their own solo pictures in development. And one wonders if they need to hire a Whedon and/or Kevin Feige-type person first, just to oversee the crucial development and storylines for what the studio is hoping will be the start of a huge multi-threaded franchise.

Overtures to Affleck as director suggest that Warners aren't necessarily going to be lowballing potential participants financially in the same way that Marvel did (though who knows), but at the same time, casting five or six A-listers would be prohibitively expensive for a film that needs to have as much of its budget up on screen as possible. So you're obviously not going to see Tom Cruise as the Flash, or Johnny Depp as Batman (especially as top-tier stars would be more reluctant to sign restrictive multi-year contracts), and you're probably not going to get Michael Fassbender or Chris Pine in there either. We can see them pushing out for a big name for one role, maybe (Batman, perhaps, or even a villain), but it's not going to be the cast of "Ocean's Eleven" either.

Ideally, what Warners is probably after are recognizable names and faces ready to make the leap up to the A-list and carry a movie on their own. Batman and Superman are draws on their own (hence the essentially unknown Henry Cavill), but they have to compete with "The Avengers" in the same year, which probably means not stacking the film entirely with a "Muppet Babies"-style cast like the George Miller one had (with hardly a single actor over the age of 25, including Jay Baruchel of all people as the villain). They're likely going to aim for more of the Chris Evans type (fairly well-known at the time and not overly expensive) than say, Chris Hemsworth (totally unknown at the time). Although it's worth noting that Hemsworth has perhaps had the biggest career boost, bar Downey Jr., of all the Marvel leads.

But then again, who would those people be? A list of actors poised on the B/C list who have a good chance of moving up across the next year or so include people like Joel Kinnaman (the new "RoboCop"), Charlie Hunnam ("Pacific Rim"), Joel Edgerton ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Jai Courtney ("A Good Day To Die Hard"), Alden Ehrenreich ("Beautiful Creatures"), Jake Abel ("The Host,"), Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger"), Justin Timberlake, Ben Barnes ("The Seventh Son") and Sam Claflin ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"), but how viable are any of them as "Justice League" characters -- we can see names like Edgerton, Courtney, Hammer and maybe Timberlake (who was on the "Green Lantern" shortlist, alongside Bradley Cooper, who's probably too big these days), but not necessarily the others. And could they be too in demand by the time the film casts up (likely next summer)?

The alternative is to gamble more and go with names drawn from TV or relative unknowns (as the Miller version did), and thus bringing costs down. Ultimately, the history of the modern blockbuster has demonstrated that stars are less important than the property (see "Avatar," "Star Trek," et al.), although that has the risk of making the film look like a DTV knock-off of "The Avengers" if the films are in theaters at the same time. It's also risky because Warners' plans would mean that actors would have to not only fit into an ensemble, but then carry a movie on their own, and it's tricky to do both. So who would we cast? Well, head on over to page two, and you can find our picks -- assuming a relatively stripped-down line-up that includes Superman, The Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern (but probably not more out-there and obscure characters like Aquaman and Martian Manhunter). It'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out, and you can let us know your own picks in the comments section below.

    Superman-Henry Cavill. Wonder Woman-Taylor Cole or Bridget Regan.
    They could either keep Ryan Reynolds as GL or get someone new...who knows.
    They could either use Joseph Gordon Levitt to pick up Batman's role after TDKR or get a new guy to lead to the reboot. We'll see.
    As for Flash, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter, I haven't a clue yet. If MM is just CG, they should get the voice actor from the TV series of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, he fits perfectly.

    Batman: Christian Bale ; Superman : Tom Welling (Smallville ); Wonder Woman:Alexandra Daddario ; Green Lantern: Ryan Renolds ; Flash: Bradley Cooper ; Martian Manhunter: Phil Morris ( Smallville ) ; Villain(LEx Luthor) : Michael Rosenbaum ; I think the movie should be based off the Smallville universe since almost all characters have met , that would allow the movie to move forward without introducing each hero to one another ; it would be set in 2017 just like the Smallville Finale showed ; directed by: JJ Abrams

    Henry Cavill and Ryan Reynolds need to be Superman and Green Lantern.

    This isn't up for debate. They NEED to be Superman and Green Lantern.

    What made the Marvel films work was the 'shared universe' , and using the same actors from film to film. Batman needs to be recast because the Nolanverse was a self contained thing that is over now. Batman must be the only recast actor. From here on in, it's shared universe time.

    Even those who foolishly disliked the 2011 Green Lantern movie usually agree that Ryan Reynolds was great in the role and that their problems were script based, not actor based. And Cavill looks like he'll make for a great Superman.

    So lock those two down. Set those two in stone. As for Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, AquaMan and Cyborg? It's anyone's guest.

    But no way no how can Henry Cavill and Ryan Reynolds be recast. They are required.

  • zandy zain | November 3, 2012 10:48 PM

    I Agree that batman should recast. But disagree if DC Take same way as Marvel did (continuity).

  • Daniel | October 25, 2012 4:14 AM

    I'm one of those many, many people who "foolishly" disliked the Green Lantern movie, and I certainly don't agree that Reynolds was great in the role. I've liked him in other stuff -- he's perfect in "Adventureland," for instance -- and he certainly gave it his all, but, seriously, he was just wrong for the part. Of course, the whole movie around him was wrong, so who even knows?

  • Aaron | October 23, 2012 11:17 PMReply

    I often wonder why Gina Carano is consistently omitted from the potential roster for Wonder Woman. She has excellent physicality along with a hardened demeanor and a beautiful face.

  • Daniel | October 23, 2012 7:14 PMReply

    Oliver laid out the reasons why WB will probably be courting non-famous names for this project; readers complain about how lame the list looks. Maybe so, but to me that seems more indicative of the problem facing WB than it does of Oliver's taste.

  • coke | October 23, 2012 5:29 PMReply

    This movie doesn't seem like a good idea to me. I really hope I'm wrong because if they get the movie right it will be a huge hit(even bigger than avengers I think,DC characters are more interesting)

    Oh and what about Aquaman and Martian Manhunter??

  • ckane | October 23, 2012 4:46 PMReply

    So Cavill hasn't impressed you yet but your own suggestions are supposed to be good?

  • Hudson | October 23, 2012 3:53 PMReply

    Great choices! It's refreshing to see some names other than Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion put out there. You have very realistic, well-chosen contenders.

    I really hope that the Green Lantern in the film is John Stewart played by Chadwick Boseman. "42" should put him on the map.

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a great choice for Wonder Woman, and Scoot McNairy is a great choice for Flash!

    Charlie Hunman is my choice for Batman.

  • BRAVO4U | October 23, 2012 3:53 PMReply

    I want Emily Blunt for Wonder Woman & Armie Hammer 4 Batman! After all, Armie is a RICH dude - look @ his interview and his manor -.- though he has some similarities with Henry, look-wise. As for Emily, I post this because of that movie "All you need is Kill" - if EB deliver the action scenes then WB should consider hiring her 4 JL and hyping AYNIK at the same time.

  • Lou | October 23, 2012 3:51 PMReply

    Bradley Cooper might be too big these days because The Words was such a smashing success?

  • TheoC | October 23, 2012 3:20 PMReply

    Some good shouts. I think Joel Kinnaman would actually make a good Flash.

    I've always liked http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0047248/ this dude (Eion Bailey ) for Batman, I know he'd been rumoured for the gig around the same time as Cillian Murphy and just before for Bale got it.

    Zoe Saldana may actually be too thin to be Wonder Woman but I do like an ethnically tinged choice so I'd have to go with Rosario Dawson. Otherwise I do like Alison Williams.

    David Boreanaz was great as the Green Lantern in ' Justice League: The New Frontier', animated thing a few years ago, it's probably still my favourite of the DC animated movies.

    And Yes they should attempt to get Brad Bird on this.

  • nechoplex | October 23, 2012 2:08 PMReply

    Can't say I'm on board with all of your choices, but I have to agree 100% with Scoot McNairy for The Flash. McNairy has great comedic timing and is very impressive with the dramatic/serious stuff. Having said that, the idea of a Justice League movie is completely uninteresting. I don't know what the tone of it will be, but if they are trying to emulate The Avengers in every possible way then they've set themselves up to failure. Warner Bros. needs to step back and reconsider what they're doing, or else they'll just make another Green Lantern-style mistake.

  • Cobra | October 23, 2012 1:48 PMReply

    I say Nicholas Cage should play all the characters

    Cavill as Superman. If not him maybe Matt Bomer. I like Edgerton or Waldu as Batman. Oyelowo as Stewart or Pine as Jordan. A friend suggested Gemma Arterton as Wonder Woman. After the Hobbit maybe Lee Pace will breakout and be on Warner's radar for a role (any really)

  • cary | October 23, 2012 1:23 PMReply

    the safest bet is recasting bale and carvill as batman and superman to market it as the first on-screen/live-action batman/superman team-up. Use other JL members as supporting for larger roles in the sequel. Probably they put terms and conditions regarding possible JL movie in carvill's contract but bale wouldn't come back and it'd be wise of him not to do.

  • Jack | October 23, 2012 1:17 PMReply

    Warner Bros is on the verge of a mess. That's why they split out The Hobbit and are working on Magic Mike 2-they're so desperate and pathetic. Look what happened with Dark Knight Rises-Nolan didn't wanna do it, they persisted and underwhelmed and disappointed many. Man of Steel is stil a huge question mark. Then you need to consider the other releases- Gatsby, Gravity, Gangster Squad, Jack the slayer, Warner bros will do whatever they can to keep a franchise

  • DG | October 23, 2012 1:00 PMReply

    Aside from Winstead I disagree with the entire list but then again Justice League is a stupid idea. Almost every character in it is more interesting on its own than as part of a team but I guess because Avenger was a big hit this just HAS to happen. I feel way more interested in seeing the Batman reboot go well and Superman and Wonder Woman startng successful franchises than this and I think starting with a team up is going to impede that, I mean how many good JL storylines are there in the comics compared to great Batman storylines or Superman?
