There has been a lot going on as far as comic book movies. There have been rumors of projects, stars to be cast , and the like. Wizard Magazine used to have a feature called, “Casting Call” which was their pick of people to play characters if the movie was to be made.
The point is that Hollywood has made some good decisions on casting and some not so good. For example; casting Heath Ledger as the Joker while we were all scratching our heads going, “Are you serious?” It turns out Mr. Ledger was a FANTASTIC Joker. How about when Robert Downey Jr. was cast as The Iron Man. That was a, “Really?” kind of moment. Then there was Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, which to be honest, still not seeing it. Also, there have been teases of castings like Johnny Depp for the Riddler or Bob Hoskins for the Penguin. Teases that never came to fruition, but played on our minds.
Why are we going into all of this? Why does any of this matter? Easily; we at Comic Addicts want you to weigh in on the subject. If you could cast, or recast, a movie who would be your choices and why? Is there one casting that pleasantly surprised you? Was there one you still just don’t understand?
