Following the news that Warner Bros. are planning on finally taking advantage of the huge catalogue of DC characters they hold the rights to, we thought that now would be a good time to look at ten possible adaptations they should be prioritising. After all, as Marvel Studios continue to build their cinematic universe with The Avengers and studios like Fox and Sony Pictures take advantage of high profile franchises like the X-Men and Spider-Man, DC really are falling behind! Many fans are hoping that Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs. Superman will be the start of more to come, but that is currently the only confirmed comic book movie release from Warner Bros. at this point and is still a little under two years away. Do you agree with these choices or are there some other superheroes you think are more worthy of a movie than these? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below!

10. Justice League of America

JLA

We’ll get to the main Justice League team a little later in this list, but the Justice League of America are another superhero team that Warner Bros. should consider bringing to the big screen at some point in the near future. Assembled by A.R.G.U.S. and Steve Trevor to combat the Justice League, each member of the JLA is there to take down their counterpart (Martian Manhunter vs. Superman, Catwoman vs. Batman, etc.) in case they ever lose control. If this movie was released AFTER Justice League, it could lead to a crossover of sorts down the line in which the two teams do battle. In fact, if you throw in the Justice League Dark, we could even see something like the recent “Trinity War” crossover in the comics…

    Flash should be played by Bradley Cooper who has the natural jokey vibe of Flash plus he has experience with both comedic and serious roles.

    Green Lantern (John Stewart, NOT the guy suggested in this article) should be played by Idris Elba. Elba is an excellent actor who looks the part down to a T and the right writing can make any character interesting, so that’s not an issue.

    Wonder Woman should be played by Jaimie Alexander who has the look and the experience playing the similar character Sif in the Thor movies. She just needs a tan.

    Aquaman should be played by… I’m not sure. Who’s a great blonde actor with a beard? I would’ve named Russell Crowe as a good choice but he’s neither blonde nor available to play two characters in the same universe. I do think Aquaman should be Crowe’s age, though. I can’t imagine the king of Atlantis otherwise.

    Martian Manhunter… I have no clue. Anyone have any suggestions?

    @disqus_cSmFg6Ffp1:disqus How about the most blonde guy of hollywood Brad Pitt for Aquaman?
    Martian Manhunter, well I can see Vin Diesel justifying this role, but since he is now in Marvelverse, how about Matthew McConaughey?

    you have 2 marvel actors listed there though. DC is gonna want to separate the actors

    Since when have they cared about sharing actors? You forget about Ryan Reynolds?

  • wat

    Not sure about any of those, really. Brad Pitt doesn’t seem Aquaman-ish in my head and Vin Diesel could look the part for MM but he’s a pretty bad actor. Then again, isn’t MM pretty much emotionless? I guess it could work fine then. Also Marvel and DC have shared actors before (Ryan Reynolds and Ben Affleck most notably).

    Oh and most recently, Ben Affleck.

    After some consideration, I actually could see Brad Pitt as Aquaman. I need to Google what he looks like with a full beard lol

    If they can get a great team of writers and a great director (Ridley Scott comes to mind for some reason) and someone with the visual genius of Zack Snyder, I can see an Aquaman movie starring Brad Pitt turning out amazing. It could actually end all the Aquaman jokes and earn DC enough money to help fund the (hopefully) inevitable Justice League movie.

    Vince made the movie a hit in the show Entourage

    I, personally, would like to see Hal Jordan in the first JL movie. To me he is the quintessential Green Lantern. I won’t mind seeing Ryan Reynolds again, actually. He wasn’t a problem with the GL movie. Martian Manhunter has to be CGI(a la Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen). Idris Elba could play his human form. He has the build, the wise voice. He would be perfect!

    I respectfully disagree. For one I think John Stewart would be better because it at least diversifies the team (aside from the ALIEN lol). I thought Ryan Reynolds was TERRIBLE. I can’t take him serious and Bradley Cooper as Flash could easily cover the comic relief, and much better in my opinion. Idris Elba would bring the wise-ness and sense of responsibility that a Green Lantern is supposed to have. As far as Elba for Martian Manhunter, I’m not sure his voice would be best. I think Vin Diesel would be good like Mohit Kumar above suggested. He could both play Martian Manhunter’s more human form (with CGI stepping in for his true martian form) and give the Manhunter a distinct, deep voice. Then again, Diesel’s accent doesn’t quite suit who MM is supposed to be. Idk lol
