    Since there are many superhero movies and reboots coming out soon, I was thinking if they made a Doctor Strange movie or a Wonder Woman movie, who would they cast?

    Foe Example...

    If I was the director for a Doctor Strange movie, I would think that Nestor Carbonell would do great as the Sorcerer Supreme.

    What about you? What would be your cast for ceratain superhero movie?

    I would cast everyone from High School Musical in the new Spider-Man reboot just to watch the fanboys cry.

    As long as the next Spider-Man film is One More Day, I don't care who it is.

    Batman reboot. Get Tim Burton back to direct, cast Johnny Depp as a "quirky" Batman/Wayne, Helena Bonham Carter as Harley Quinn, Crispin Glover as the Riddler, and a robot butler named A.L.F.R.E.D. (Assisted Living Field Reconnaisance and Evaluation Droid) that can transform into the Batmobile. BEST MOVIE EVER. ;)

    In all seriousness though, I'd like to see Daniel Craig play David Cain in one of the new Batman flicks.

    And I would like to see DiCaprio play Barry Allen if they ever did a Flash movie. If he signed on, it would be like when Nicholson signed on to play the Joker in '89. People would start taking it seriously with a serious actor on board.

    I like your choices. Though Ed Harris IMO would make a better Alan Scott. I don't think I could handle a bald Hal Jordan.

    But Dennis Leary is spot-on for Guy.

    I've been wanting a good Dr. Strange movie for ages. I still think that Adrian Brody would play a great one, as long as you play up the more magical aspect of the character, not really a physical one.

    I know, but Nic Cage gets away with wigs in every single movie. I did think about the Alan option while typing that. I still haven't come up with who I'd want for him.

    Anyway, bear in mind that those have been my picks for Hal and Guy for 15 years. I wasn't really intending the G in "GL" to stand for "Geriatric".

    Reynolds as the Flash would be cool, But seeing as he's GL, The Flash would have to get booted out of JLA, That I cannot accept.

    Bryce Johnson as Dr. Strange, and Keri Russell as Wonder Woman.

    Oh wait...they made those movies already. Live-action ones aren't necessary. I've grown tired of Hollywood grabbing up comic properties simply for the sake of making live-action versions to make money off fans who are just going to complain about them.

    The animated direct-to-video productions have a far better track record than live-action productions of comic properties. They generally treat the properties, characters and continuities with respect and consideration for the fans, and they aren't trying to make a big budget box office extravaganza with all flash and no substance.

    But I suppose if they *have* to make one, I don't really have any preferences on who would play live-action roles...unless it involves Bruce Campbell or Christopher Walken.
