Let’s Fan-Cast The Justice League

Using the original 7 members of the Justice League (Supes, Bats, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Flash, and Green Lantern), list your ideal actors to play these characters!

Also, they can be any incarnation of the character (Wally West instead of Barry Allen, for example). Just be sure to notate which incarnation in your list! I’ll start.

Superman played by Ben Barnes
Batman played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Wonder Woman played by Natalie Dormer
Martian Manhunter played by Jesse Williams
Flash (Wally West) played by Domhnall Gleeson
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) played by Matt Damon

And as a bonus: some villains!

The Joker played by Alfie Allen
Lex Luthor played by Michael C. Hall
Ares played by Dave Bautista
Zoom (Hunter Zolomon) played by Crispin Glover
Darkseid played by Andy Serkis (mo cap, of course)

What do you think of my picks? What would be your choices for these iconic characters?


Apologies to the Atlanteans as I left out their king. My pick for Aquaman would be David Wenham.

Superman - Matt Bomer
Batman - Sam Worthington
Wonder Woman - Mila Kunis
Martian Manhunter - Manu Bennett
The Flash (Barry Allen) - Lucas Till
Green Lantern (John Stewart) - Idris Elba
Aquaman - Nikolaj Coster-Wallace

Some Villains
Lex Luthor - Mark Strong
Zoom - Jackie Earle Haley
Darkseid - Javier Bardem
Vandal Savage - Luke Evans
Amazo - John Hamm

Extra credit, alternate team members, who coincidentally would be played by actors from the movie Serenity.

Nathan Fillion - Green Lantern (Hal Jordan, obviously)
Adam Baldwin - Orion
Alan Tudyk - Plastic Man
Morena Baccarin - Big Barda (she might actually get more gorgeous if she was made 7 ft tall)
Chiwetel Ejiofor - Green Lantern (Jon Stewart)
