Variety first broke the news that Avengers’ director Joss Whedon is in talks with Warner Brothers to produce, write, and direct the first ever Batgirl solo film.
A new He-Man/Masters of the Universe has been underway for awhile now but has had troubles getting a script going and a director. But there is certainly going to be a film, but we may have to continue waiting before things finally set.
This is where things get a bit crazy…My plan here is to share my fan-cast picks for as many DC characters as I can think of (not including those already cast). This won’t be a voted fan-cast like typical since this is strictly my picks. BUT I would love it if you would share your own ultimate fan-cast in the comments!
It’s no secret that the recent attempt at a Fantastic Four reboot failed critically and financially. It’s led to many fans (including myself) wanting another new reboot so we can forget that attempt of a reboot, which would’ve been part of Fox’s Marvel cinematic universe. For this fan-cast, it’s pretty open to where ever F4 ends up – still with Fox or joining the Disney/MCU.
Although the 2002 and 2004 films were enjoyable, and have become somewhat of a guilty favorite, they weren’t technically the best…So I’d love to see a new attempt at a live-action Scooby Doo film! WB plans to make an animated cinematic-type universe reboot for Scooby Doo, but I think it’d be fun to see another (better) attempt at a live-action. Perhaps instead of calling it Scooby Doo, Mystery Inc would better suit. But who should play the roles? Let’s fan-cast!
Here it is! Part 2 of the Disney Live-Action movies fan-cast. I created this so there isn’t one giant long post – I figured this would be much easier to separate pre-2000 and post-2000 films. Both will see updates over time as usual and any fan-casts moved from Part 1 to 2 have not been reset/affected.
Now that it has been clarified what spin-off movie Margot Robbie is exec-producing, I think it’s time to do some fan-casting! To clarify, these picks are always a round up of not only my ideas but outside ideas from other fans as well. No other characters have been confirmed for the film other than Harley Quinn, but we can assume Catwoman and Poison Ivy will appear.
This is a big one I’ve been wanting to do for awhile…
I’m a pretty big Harry Potter fan. It’s probably the first franchise that I got hooked to (yes, even before superhero/CB films). Although there are no books on the four founders of Hogwarts, it’s still a BIG opportunity for JK/Warner Brothers to make this prequel movie(s) to explain the history of the school so many have seen Harry Potter attend. There are other stories I’d like to see developed that has to do with the wizarding world (like the other wizarding schools out there) but this would be a smart move given that the audience would be familiar with Hogwarts and these 4 wizards and witches. Plus, we get to see the origins of many things at Hogwarts such as the creation of the sorting hat, the chamber of secrets/basilisk, the diadem, and that golden cup that was turned into a horcrux…
In my opinion, I think WB/DC should consider a Green Arrow/Black Canary team-up film. Although both, IMO, could do a solo film, I think a team-up would be smarter, especially considering that they both work together and are in a relationship.You can’t really have one without the other. It’d be pretty cool if we got a Green Arrow/Lantern team-up film but I’m not sure if it’ll work in the cinematic universe DC is building. We’ll see…
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!
