There are various characters whom the fans wish to see as other superheroes, and it’s not just about their appearances, which admittedly is a major factor behind them getting the roles, but, several other elements as well which make those actors ideal choices for featuring as these superheroes.
1. Channing Tatum – U.S. Agent
U.S. Agent is a popular hero who has been the replacement for Captain America on a number of occasions. It is not just Tatum’s strong jawline, but, his fantastic physical appearance and acting talent. The Agent is a guy who has grown up idol-worshipping his brother who was a part of the Vietnam War, and then Walker became a hero after getting superhuman powers.
2. Triple-H – Sabertooth
Two actors have already played Sabertooth, but, none really did justice to the character. Triple-H looks exactly like Sabertooth, and his intimidating posture also makes him more suitable.
3. Sylvester Stallone – Cable
Stallone is not unknown to the action hero genre, and his grey-haired look can bully you. Cable is a sophisticated time traveler, and he is someone who can play a fantastic supporting role. Considering the universe has various alternate timelines, Stallone would be a good choice alongside Josh Brolin’s portrayal of Cable.
4. Niel Patrick Harris – Riddler
We are certain to see the Riddler in the upcoming Batman movie in DCEU, Niel Patrick Harris would be ideal to play the role because he is someone who can be perfectly annoying. He can be crazy and nasty, and yet the audiences will love him.
5. Idris Elba – Green Lantern
We can simply say that Green Lantern was totally absurd. Whether it was the CGI or the story, or acting, we don’t blame Reynolds, but, the dialogs were crappy. Elba as Jon Stewart can not only impress in action and comedy but, also because of his intimidating manners and control that we saw on screen during his portrayal of Heimdall.
6. John Cena as Captain America
John Cena and Captain America are both people who show their patriotism and love for America. Cena looks like the right choice to depict the strength, speed, endurance, and agility of Captain America and has faster reflexes.
7. Tom Hardy as Wolverine
It is nearly impossible to consider anyone other than Hugh Jackman to play Wolverine on screen. He has himself likened Tom Hardy to be his potential successor, a person who could portray the younger Wolverine with finesse. In response to a question about his choice of the actor to play this character, Jackman had said. “That’s a great question. I haven’t given it a lot of thought. I’ve been asked the question a lot, and I’m always like “I don’t want to make it too easy on the studio to replace me.” I’ve still got one more to do. I’m sure they’re already talking about it, that some actor out there they’ve already said “shhh… keep it quiet, but we want you next. ” “He’s younger than me for sure, I think Tom Hardy would be great…” Despite his recent casting as Venom, we believe that Tom Hardy would make a fantastic future Wolverine.
8. Liam Hemsworth as SHAZAM
Liam Hemsworth did fabulously in The Hunger Games, and he is bound to be a good choice to play SHAZAM. He might be able to do justice to the character. Although his brother is a part of Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would be fantastic seeing him take up the role in DCEU.
9. Natalie Dormer as Hawkgirl
Natalie Dormer was the perfect embodiment of Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones, a role that made her famous. Although some people consider her to be ideal for Captain Marvel, her looks make her even more suitable to play Hawkgirl.
10. Olivia Wilde as Catwoman
She is considered to be among the hottest women alive. Her acting skills are ideal for a heroine’s part. However, she will do great as a villain. Olivia Wilde is perfectly catty to play Catwoman!
