Justice League film just around the corner!. In a perfect world there would be a perfect cast for DC's finest and baddest. If you could choose any actor, alive or dead, at any point of their careers, to play any character from the DC Universe, who would you pick?
Ridley (Sir) Scott recently said in an interview that he would never ever, bloody ever do a "superhero/comic book" film. Not his actual words but he adamant that it would never happen.... Which is a shame, as I think he'd probably do a great job... Especially if he'd been handed the keys to the Batmobile and Bat-Franchise at the beginning of his illustrious directing career, say around 1983-'84?! No idea who could've played Bruce Wayne/ Batman at that time.... (as long as it wasn't Stallone!) I thought that a young Harrison Ford would've made a great Harvey Dent/Two-Face though! Would like to have seen him move out of the Hollywood hero mold and portray a troubled bad guy. Come to think of it, has he ever played a bad guy in a film? Answers on a postcard please!
Little design note: Based the overall look and suit on the Batman Animated Series version of Dent, designed by Bruce Timm, as I am a huge fan of both. I always liked it in the cartoon series, as it was simple, stark and represented Harvey's split personality well and it was a billionsquillion times better than Tommy Lee Jones' makeup and costume in the truly, truly awful Batman film with the equally repugnant Jim Carrey as The Riddler, (the actual title of the film I cannot remember or have had burned from my synapses!... as has the film.. [I have never seen or ever will see the Clooney/ Schwarzenegger one apart from a clip as Arnie as Mr. Freeze, uttering some moronic "ice pun" that was enough for my 8 year old inner me to weep uncontrollably!]
I seemed to have digressed into near rage..... On a side note and possible conversation starter (or fight instigator), What does everyone/anyone think of the current crop of castings in comic book related films and franchises? T.V and film, D.C, Marvel and independents. Also, any suggestions for future paintings? Who would you cast as who!
p.s Another side note to the previous side note... I have never watched an episode of The Walking Dead....... A discussion for another time maybe....
