In terms of casting, I’d like to see Christian Bale as Batman and Tom Welling (from Smallville) as Superman. I did not at all like Brandon Routh’s portrayal of Superman in Superman Return (a movie I disliked a lot). Tom gives Superman more personality.
That reminds me...I made a rather HUGE omission in my previous JLA the movie post: the man / director /comic-&-movie-god who’ll pull all the threads together...drumroll please...Joss Whedon!
But wait, didn’t Whedon say that DC heroes are too god-like to make good comic-to-film-translations?
Okay, yes, he did. That was before he saw my idea for the movie...hehe
But, that’s the great thing about the JLA: they’re a group of god-like figures whose individual sets of ethics differ and can be played against one another. You’ll have a hard time making a case for any one of them being heroically and/or morally superior to the rest.
Also, as already established, the JLA would be facing be the new gods of Apokalips. Who better to make the JLA seem less god-like than people who are?
Mister Whedon, are you ready to sign up? Yes? Well, bring along Nathan Fillion (from Firefly) to play Hal Jordan, will you?
I'm sure this "audition pic" will carry SallyP of Green Lantern Butts' approval and vote...
Okay, I’ll settle for the studio choice, Ryan Renolds, too.
I still don't know who will play Wonder Woman...decisions, decisions...
Then, it’s all set, Mister Whedon. We’ll see you on set, Mister Whedon. Thank you for being you, Mister Whedon. I’ll be quiet now, Mister Whedon.
