*Keep in mind that i can only make foils while I have them to work with. So if you ask and I don't have enough for your order, you'll either have to wait patiently or suply your own for me to use. Which would actually be greatly appreciated.
We already know who I pick for Wally West (I'll reiterate below) but Mbecks14 was about to cry (kidding) when I said I didn't want to put Barry Allan in the movie so I racked my brain and here's the results in whole...and before you say anything, I don't care that he already played Two-Face DKR, I choose...
Aaron Eckhart as Barry Allen/The (silver age) Flash
Yeah. And again...
Joel Mchale as Wally West/The Flash
Next I'll play my uber fantasy 'times O past' cast early and say that...
David Carradine 30 odd years ago would have been the absolute best Captain Cold. Hands down. Nobody else that I've seen currently (I'm still looking though) can match the presence that this bad ass alpha male villain possesses. He's like the Johny Cash of super villains. Even his fellow Rogues have nothing but fear and respect for this guy. And the actor has to be able to pull all that off. Something Carradine could have done in his sleep.
Alright, this next one I'm not completely sold on till I've watched more of his stuff but dude's got all the makings, visually.
Matthew Gray Gubler as The Weather Wizard.
I need to see Gubler in a more of an asshole role before I can mark this as concrete. Weather Wizard has a pretty mean superiority complex.
Next two are the "general DC" folks. First one kinda seems like I can do better, so I'm not finalizing it just yet but...
Josh Brolin as Deathstroke? I know, I know. He already did Jonah Hex and is kind of known for his bad-assery but the dude so looks the part. Idk, like I said..I'm not totally content with it. The Search goes on, but he's for sure in the runnings.
Last but not least. Well, lets introduce this one in a more special way. *clears throat*
Gone! Gone! — the form of (borrow)man —
Rise, the Demon Etrigan!!
Yeah. John Barrowman as Jason Blood/The Demon. I know, right? So..ok, this is what Wikipedia had to say on Jason Blood's role...
Jason Blood is a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant. His skills include mastery in swordsmanship. Jason is also adept at magic, and is often called upon to act as an advisor or investigator in occult matters (such as in the series Arkham Asylum: Living Hell). He also has limited precognition and telepathy. Jason is technically immortal as he is connected to the demon Etrigan. He also has the combined experiences of all the time since he was bonded to the demon. Jason Blood unfortunately shares all of Etrigan's weaknesses."
I think Barrowman's got this=]
Merlin's Demon from Hell is often associated with fire, but never before has he been this flaming. *wink*
First of all. If you haven't read Paul Pope's Batman: Year 100...shame on you. Go track it down now. I'll wait (as far as you know.) It is BY FAR my favorite Batman story that I've ever read. And I've read a lot of Batman. Interestingly enough it's in fact not Bruce Wayne under the mask, probably, it's actually never revealed either way. But I digress...Lets get to it then, shall we.
Trent Ford as Batman
Here's some more comparison pics for good measure/I couldn't decide which was my favorite.
He obviously would have to bulk up, but from what I hear Hollywood has one or two personal trainers so that's pretty much easy as pie. Even in a regular Batman movie I think he could pull off a great Bruce Wayne with suave to spare. On a side note. He's the same actor I would choose for Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
Moving on from the Year 100 movie and going back to a regular Batman movie...
Jason Schwartzman as The Riddler.
For the slightly scary version of the character that is. In a perfect world the following is something that would be more ideal in my mind=P
Last but not least, from my now slightly standard time files comes a 'would be' that is indisputable...
Paul Henreid as Jim Corrigan/The Spectre
And if you haven't seen Casablanca, we're no longer friends.
Let us start out with the lovebirds(pun intended)...
Wes Bentley as Boston Brand/Deadman
Mandy Moore as Dawn Granger/Dove
And as a bonus (even thought it has nothing to do with Brightest Day) I'm going to tack one more casting choice onto this blog. Since in my last blog I did a time jump and borrowed an actor from a few decades back I'm going to do the same here and propose...
A young James Woods as The Long Halloween's Calender Man
Alright that's all for now. As per usual, I'd appreciate it if you all would let me know what you think of these choices weather you think they are good or horrible. And Remember, as Bill and Ted said..Be excellent to each other.
And since this is fantasy casting I'll break the laws of time and steal either Treat Williams or Denis Quaid from about 20 years ago to play Hal Jordan...
Suffice it to say I was not happy with Ryan Reynolds playing my favorite character of all time, but pretty much only because I wanted him as Wally West instead. Don't let that detract from my choice of Joel Mchale for Wally though. I still believe that would work and work perfectly=]
