Who should play the Superheroes and Villians in upcoming comic movies?
Here come the blockbusters!
Comic Book movies are very popular now and are breaking profit records at the the.box office. Some of the actors that have brought the comic book heros and heorines to the silver screen are going to keep those roles. However, there are going to be some shake ups in Hollywood and some new characters are about to emerge.
Here are some of the rumored casting picks and some of my hopes for upcoming films.
First, the DC heros.
Nightwing- The rumors are swirling around about this upcoming production . Since it is definitely time for Nightwing to emerge, I hear that Matthew Campbell is being considered for the lead role. From the performances of his that I have seen, he can definitely.handle this role.
With his acting and martial arts skills, Campbell looks like a great fit for this role.
I also think that if James Tan was selected as Red Hood, he and Campbell would be great adversaries.
Batman- Nightwing's former boss is heard to be shedding Ben Affleck. If that happens, I hope that the rumors of Josh Brolin becoming the Dark Knight.are true.
Superman- I hope that Henry stays in this role but, the rumors say that.he won't. Carl Urban and Theo James would make interesting dark horses for the Man of Steele.
It has been surfacing that Dave Bautista (WWE and G. of. T.G.) WILL BE playing The Cargon in the upcoming Highlander remake. I.would like to see him also as either the Swamp Thing (if Vin Diesel is a no) or The Submariner.
But Swamp Thing would be cool with Vin.
Now those from the Marvel Movies
I have heard for years that The Submariner was going to be produced. Since he is one of my favorites, I would love to see this happen. However, it must be cast right for a film like this to work. This will be a tough one, but Mark Walberg and maybe even James Marsden should be considered.
The real question is Captain Marvel. I would have no problem with the Rock handling this. He seems like a good pick for it with his physique and line delivery skills, but it looks like he has a conflict that prevents that.
There are plenty of other actors that are worthy of consideration as well.
It will make for some fun speculation and we all hope, some great summer blockbusters!
