Fan-Cast: Justice League Dark

…or Dark Universe. Guillermo del Toro recently turned in his script to WB for his film on JLD but isn’t sure if he will be directing the film due to other film commitments and the pace WB is going in building the DCCU.

UPDATE – Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) has officially stepped up as director. The rumored team line-up is Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, Jason Blood, and Swamp Thing.

JOHN CONSTANTINE

Alexander S, Colin F, Colin OD, Daniel G, Domhnall G, Ewan M, Gabriel M, Harry L, Joe D, Jonathan RM, Joseph F, Jude L, Michiel H, Rupert PJ, Sam H, William M.

Constantine would obviously be a part of JLD. Although Matt Ryan would have been great for the role in the movie ‘verse as well, he’s officially joined the CW’s DC universe. So we’ll probably get a new Constantine. Plus, rumors are Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor are favorites for the role, with Farrell in first. If not them, though, the rest of the fan-cast includes fans picks as well as mine!

*Update – Matt Ryan removed as he will be returning to the role of Constantine in Arrow. Dan Stevens was removed due to his casting in the X-Men live-action series, Legion. Patrick Wilson has been removed as he played POTUS in BvS and may return for future films. Ben Barnes has been removed due to his casting in The Punisher.*

ZATANNA ZATARA

zatanna

Aiysha H, Alexandra D, Ana DA, Ania B, Astrid BF, Eiza G, Emilia C, Freida P, Gemma A, Karla S, Mary EW, Meghan O, Olivia W, Priyanka C, Rooney M.

I am super excited to see Zatanna on the big screen and I really want whoever they pick to be able to act the role well. I picked several actresses I think would work well and, as always, included some fan favorites for the role. Rumors are that WB is looking to “diversify” Zatanna by casting a Latina or Black actress for the role. Not sure how true that is (given the source said the same thing about Mera, who ended up being Amber Heard). But I tried to, then, vary in actresses in general. Let me know in the poll who you would pick!

*UPDATE – Jenna Dewan-Tatum has been removed from the poll due to her casting in Supergirl as Lucy Lane. Katie McGrath removed due to her casting in Supergirl. Serinda Swan removed due to casting in Inhumans.*

JASON BLOOD (Etrigan the Demon)

jason blood etrigan

Daniel G, Danila K, Domhnall G, Eddie R, Eric B, Ewan M, Joel E, Jude L, Leonardo D, Luke E, Richard M, Stuart T.

Jason Blood was a bit hard to fan-cast. I started off by incorporating fans ideas first then filled in my own ideas. I added Ewan to this fan-cast as well as it was rumored that if he wasn’t Constantine, they’d want thim for Jason. Again, not sure how accurate these rumors are so take it lightly!

DEADMAN (Boston Brand)

deadman

Alex OL, Cam G, Glen P, Jamie B, Jensen A, Joel M, Justin B, Kevin D, Luke E, Luke G, Matt B, Matthew G, Norman R, Stuart T, Wes B, Zachary Q.

Deadman was a bit easier to fan-cast than Blood, but I don’t know who I would like to see the most as the character. Like I always do, I used ideas I had and fans ideas. Vote in the poll who you could see as Deadman!

*UPDATE – Patrick Wilson removed due to casting as Ocean Master in Aquaman.*

OTHERS…

Madame Xanadu

Amanda Westlake, Berenice Marlohe, Carla Gugino, Eva Green, Famke Janssen, Gemma Arterton, Lena Heady, Marion Cotillard, Monica Belluci, Noomi Rapace, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel Weisz

If there is one other character I want to see in the JLD movie it’s Madame Xanadu. As long as her inclusion makes sense. Age range is quite wide with this fan cast so I looked for fan’s picks and then added a few of my own ideas. Monica Belluci has been rumored to be a favorite at WB for the role but we’ll see…

Giovanni John Zatara

Swamp Thing

tba (ron perlman)

BLACK ORCHID (Alba Garcia)

Black Orchad Alba Garcia

Alexa V, Ana DA, Camila B, Camilla B, Diane G, Eiza G, Genesis R, Gina R, Jordana B, Maiara W, Melissa F, Natalie M, Sarah H, Seychelle G, Shay M, Sofia BD.

There are more than one incarnations of Black Orchid, and I’m not sure which DC plans to bring to the big screen. Alba, in particular, is the fourth version who is a part of JLD. Which is why she’s part of this fan-cast. I looked for younger actresses in this fan-cast and of course, ones who can act. Let me know who you would pick!

*Update – Odette Annable has been removed due to casting in Supergirl.*

DOCTOR MIST (Nommo Balewa)

Doctor Mist

Boris K, David O, Jimmy JL, Lance R, Peter M, Ricky W, Robert R, Taye D

I don’t know the likeliness we’ll see Doctor Mist any time soon…(Who knows, maybe he’s secretly in SS). But why not fan-cast him given he does/did have a history with JLD. We’ve only seen Nommo in the now cancelled Constantine TV show so we’ll have to see how long it takes to see him again…It was hard to fan-cast him though, so let me know if I left anyone out!

PANDORA

pandora

Ana DA, Astrid BF, Daisy R, Emilia C, Emmy R, Gemma A, Jessica V, Kaya S, Maiara W, Phoebe T, Priyanka C, Rooney M, Saoirse R, Tatiana M, Troian B.

Pandora would be an interesting character to see in JLD, particularly given her long history. Plus, she has ties to the immortal Vandal Savage, possibly serving a neat tie-in from JLD to a JL movie. We’ll see what exactly will happen to this character though.

DOCTOR FATE

Doctor Fate

Clive O, Craig P, Daniel C, Domhnall G, Jason I, Jon H, Joseph F, Jude L, Kevin M, Mark S, Richard A, Rufus S, Ryan G, Sam H, Viggo M, Zachary Q.

I don’t know where Doctor Fate would appear first in the DCEU but I think it’d be fitting if he popped up in a JLD movie. I’m going to guess Kent Nelson would be the Fate they go with but that could change.

  1. I like the suggestion for Colin O’Donoghue as Constantine. After “Once Upon a Time”, I can easily see it.

    By the way, here’s some suggestions:

    Jessica Lowndes as Zatanna
    Salma Hayek as Madame Xanadu
