At one point there was a rumor saying Supergirl, Bizarro, and Brainiac would be involved in the Man of Steel sequel. Supposedly, Brainiac is after the same codex General Zod was after, and Supergirl. Brainiac supposedly creates Bizarro to go after Supergirl. (So the main villain will be Brainiac and Bizarro is his “dirty-work” guy) The issue with this rumor is that a sequel to MoS hasn’t even been green lit yet. Snyder and everyone else involved in the “sand-box” of the DC Universe is too busy with the solo films and Justice League.
Whether or not its true, a Man of Steel sequel is inevitable, no matter how long we have to wait. So I’ll be fan-casting major Superman characters. Like other fan-casts, I add on over time so be sure to check back!
Essentially, Bizarro should just be Henry Cavill all…Bizarro-ed. Haha. I mean, that is what Bizarro is in the comics. Smallville did the same with Tom Welling playing the character. Why not Cavill? So I’m going to skip this fan-casting…
Let’s see if Luthor will turn out to be harboring Brainiac or not…If not, let’s fan-cast!
Oh man, how I would’ve loved to see Benedict Cumberbatch in the role. But, he is Doctor Strange. No way for him to jump universes like a few actors have been able to. I included, as usual, some actors I thought would work and others’ picks. It’s a bit hard to fan-cast Brainiac but hopefully WB/DC does something cool with the character.
GENERAL SAM LANE
Rumor has it that General Lane is being cast/has already been cast for the first Justice League film. We’ll wait a bit to see if that’s true or not before doing a fan-cast for him.
LIVEWIRE (Leslie Willis)
I believe Livewire’s first and only live-action appearance so far was on CBS’ Supergirl as one of her adversaries. It makes curious if we’ll even see the character any time soon, then, in the movie universe (especially when there are other villains that could be introduced first).
LUCY LANE (Superwoman?)
I figure we may see Lois’ sibling at some point…If the DCEU is acknowledging she has a sibling. I would hope so. Anyways, fan-casting Lucy was difficult because A) could not find any fan suggestions B) looking for actresses who could pull off looking like Lois’ sister, and C) age-range since I don’t know exactly what WB would look for. I also don’t know if they will bring about one version of Lucy where she is also Superwoman. It may be confusing to have her and Supergirl so for now…
*Brie Larson removed due to casting as Captain Marvel.*
I don’t know the probability we’ll see Maxima but DC/WB could have her team up, perhaps, with another villain to fight against Superman and Supergirl.
We’ll probably see Supergirl first before we Superboy, but just in case why not fan-cast him? I’m sure I’m missing some actors so let me know if I did. I just wanted to point out the addition of Dylan Sprayberry who actually played young Clark Kent in Man of Steel. He’s about (or will be) the right age for Connor in my opinion and it’d be funny to see him come back for the role!
SUPERGIRL (Kara Zor-El)
Whether or not this part of Man of Steel was an Easter Egg to Supergirl…
I really hope we get to see the character. I was disappointed they didn’t try to use the CBS show to connect to the movie universe…But I guess now we get two Supergirl’s like we get two Flash’s. There was a prequel comic to MoS involving Supergirl on Krypton…but how she would end up on Earth is a bit of a mystery. There are a number of theories out there…And they could use the same as the TV show and comics has where she went off course for awhile…
I tried to include an age range of at least 20 to 30 years old, a couple outside that range, however. But it just really depends on what story line they choose to bring in Kara. What we do need, however, is someone who can act tough and may be a bit in over her head at times. And of course, the actress needs to be able to act and have chemistry with Superman, Henry Cavill. Let me know who you would pick or who I am missing from the fan-cast!
