Gotham City Sirens (My Fancast!)

I'm aware that I just did one of these. Big whoop, wanna fight about it?

Anyway, after doing my JLA fancast, I showed it to a friend who started talking to me about the one comic we both read -- Gotham City Sirens. This is what we came up with.

1. Catwoman - Olga Kurylenko

Funny accents can be fixed. Being incredibly hot with short hair and having distinctly feline features stays with you. She's been in cool-ass movies like Hitman and Centurion, she was awesome in both of them, and she's my pick for Selina Kyle. She even has green eyes! See? SEE?!

2. Poison Ivy - Christina Hendricks

I've always tended to picture Ivy as very curvy (the artwork generally doesn't help). Therefore, the natural choice would be someone that google cannot find a picture of that's rated under PG-13. Hendricks is also ginger, would look good green, can play smart, and is, in general, a very talented actress. Just don't tell her that you have more respect for her thunderous boobage than her acting skillz.

3. Harley Quinn - Zooey Deschanel

Zooey and Harley share one very important trait -- OMGCUTE. Her massive blue eyes mirror Harley's nicely, as does her innocent face and girlish smile. She's not a terribly experienced actress, but I've seen what she can do, and even roles that make me pretty confident that she could play Harley. So... yeah. She's my pick. (And I've considered a lot of people.)

4. Zatanna - Rachel McAdams

Rachel McAdams have proven a few things over her career.

1) She's good

2) She looks amazing in fishnets

3) She can play smart

She came to mind immediately when I was pondering the crafty and showmanly Zatanna.

5. Riddler - Neil Patrick Harris

He's funny. He's classy. He can easily play the smart, inferiority-complex-having, cane-twirling Riddler and I doubt anyone will disagree.

6. Batman (Dick Grayson) - Hayden Christensen

Okay, let's hear it. "WE HATE HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN. WE HATE YOU TOO, JOYGIRL. YOU GET YOUR CLOWNY ASS STRAIGHT TO HELL FOR EVEN MENTIONING HIS NAME."

Did I get it about right? Okay, here we go.

You hate him because he was in Star Wars, You hate him because he SUCKED in Star Wars. Note that EVERYONE sucked in Star Wars.

I've seen him in a good few things -- Star Wars, Jumper, Awake, the wholly forgettable Life as a House -- and I think he can play Dick. He's shown that he can pull off the overconfident, playful bachelor, and he's in good enough shape that he could be doing action scenes better than Christian Bale's before long.

----

Considered listing Joker... but I'll save him for another time.

Thanks for reading, folks, I hope you enjoy and like the list!

Hayden can't act for s#!t. The one I wholeheartedly agree with is Rachel McAdams. I have a BIG soft spot for her. I wanted her to play Lois Lane.

Love the fact that Hendricks denies she's had a boob job. Looked at Firefly...yeah...right...no boob job...sure.

Have you seen him in anything besides Star Warz?

I knooooow, she's so cute and cool. I've loved her since I saw her in The Hot Chick with Rob Schneider.

I don't think she has, actually. I think her boobs were strapped in through most of Firefly, because when you see her later on in her nightshirt you can see some tigass bitties underneath there. Besides... BACK PROBLEMS, man. No responsible adult would want knockers that colossal.

Also, they look real... but I've been wrong before... (or have I...?).

I gotta say, I really like this cast. I thought I was the only one who thought Zooey Deschanel would be an excellent Harley, lol.

And NPH as the Riddler? Damn, that's great.

@Gambit1024: Thanks. ^_^

I didn't know Zooey much before Your Highness, but I think that's sufficient proof she could do it. NPH seemed obvious to me. :D

To be honest, the thought never occurred to me. Guess I'm so adamant to see him as Flash, that it skipped my mind, lol

@Joygirl:

Know what? I like this. I like this a lot...

Good job.

@Joygirl: I like everyone except for Christiansen and Zooey, I'm not gonna hate Hayden for not being able to act, but rather for not looking like Dick (yesh, I'm that shallow)  
 
I'd cast Ian Somerhalder as Dick and Sheri Moon Zombie as Harley

Not too sure about Olga for Catwoman. A little too European for my liking - even though Selina was like supposedly born in Italy (Dark Victory, why must you confuse me)?
 
Christina has ALWAYS been my #1 pick for Ivy. Dick Grayson...I've always thought Jake Gyllenhaal would be perfect.

The first two I agree with.

  • Emily Browning as Harley

  • Gemma Arterton as Zatanna

  • David Tennant as the Riddler

And I've always loved Christian Bale as Batman.

NPH for Riddler!

I love Rachel McAdams. I'd rather see her as Harley Quinn.
