I can see Common as John Stewart.

Adam Brody as Flash? I could probably see that too. I first thought of Adrian Brody instead of Adam and had a huge groan. So maybe my acceptance of Brody is based on the fact that he's a much better choice than Adrian.

I still think Ryan Reynolds is made for that job...

Reason one and only for Deadpool movie not being made:

It is an action comedy based on a character whose face is scarred beyond recognition. You can't sell a burn victim heartthrob to teeny-boppers and expect them to bite. It's not a moneymaker.

Yeah, except that he'd be in a mask for 90% of the movie. I'm sorry, but if they are seriously making an Ant-Man movie, then they damn well can make a Deadpool movie.

I'd have to disagree there. Ant Man is more viable because its a marketing dream. Plus it is a lot easier to pitch: "Imagine if "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" met the Incredible Hulk. Done.

Deadpool would be so neutered if brought to the big screen you wouldn't want to see it anyway.

Justice League: Who Will Be Cast as Wonder Woman?

whowillbewonderwomankn0.th.jpg

Casting is in full effect on the Justice League movie, and while no names are yet attached, we are getting a better idea of the actors who are trying out for the roles. And everyone seems to want to know what actress will be playing Wonder Woman. Let’s take a look at the new hopefuls:

Australian actress Victoria Hill (December Boys) supposedly did a screen test audition in September.

MTV reports that 26-year-old singer/actrsss Christina Milian wants the role. Although, I’m sure her ethnicity might prevent her from winning the role of the Amazon. Wonder Woman is also known for her curvaceous long legs. The modern day character is 6′3″ while the older version was much shorter (5′11″ was “amazonian” height for a woman in the 1960’s). Millian stands at a very short 5′ 2”.

Cinematical has learned that Shannyn Sossamon (A Knight’s Tale, One Missed Call) has auditioned for the role, after blowing away the Mulroneys in a Princess Di casting session. Sossamon is 29-years old and 5′ 9”, a little closer in height, but still much shorter than the traditional character.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Final Destination 3, Live Free or Die Hard) and Teresa Palmer (December Boys) both auditioned for Miller earlier this week during the marathon casting sessions in Hollywood. Age 21 years of age, Palmer is the youngest of the bunch. Her publicity materials list her as 5′ 5¾”. Winstead stands 5′ 8” and is also young (22 years old).

The Past: Both Jessica Biel and Katie Holmes have been rumored, but are no longer in contention for the role.

Apparently they are looking for an actress aged 21-29, and anywhere from 5′ 2” to 5′ 9” in height. So chances are that we’ll be getting a younger/shorter Wonder Woman.So who would you cast as Wonder Woman?

Deadpool might work if they brought him in as a merc in Wolverine 2 and he really stood out as a whacky anti-hero. It would be especially fun to see him as a slightly amoral whackjob hired to take down Wolverine. I could see a Deadpool movie working that way but theres no way he could draw on his own. At least tying in his origin with Wolvie makes him memorable to moviegoers.

Of that list, Victoria Hill. Sossamon does nothing for me, Winstead & Palmer are too young and Christina Millian is USELESS at everything she does. It's not that she's black that should hamper her but the fact she has no talent.

Barry Allen is alive and still the fastest man on Earth in George Miller’s “Justice League of America,” according to UGO fixture Patrick Sauriol!

Slightly startling news, as Barry (the silver-age Flash) been dead for decades and had nothing to do with the recent comic-book Brother Eye arc on which the movie appears to be based.

I have no problem with this. In fact, I bet they'll introduce Kid Flash (Wally) in the first movie so he can become Flash after Barry dies in the second or third film.

I don't know. Wally West has always been "my Flash" given the era I started reading DC in and the Flash in particular. It's not a big deal, but I would have liked West in it. Oh well.

The first 14 pages of the script have made it to UGO Movieblog. The real one, not the fake one from the other day. They say it's actually good. They don't post the script, but describe it.

Spoilers at the site(but few big spoilers cause it's only the beginning of the movie)

Producers don't seem to realize why the first two X-Men and Spider-Man films worked so well. An emphasis wasn't placed on pleasing fanboys; the goal was to tell an awesome story. Every single time I read a clip about this JLA movie I have to smack my head. "OMG~ Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman fight!" Ugh.

Since I haven't seen her act, I'll reserve judgment on Teresa Palmer. Though I will say she looks way too small for the part.

Major tentpoles are the most vulnerable should the strike drag on. Warner Bros. execs are nervous about how to proceed with "Justice League of America," which is still uncast and is a crucial potential franchise boasting popular DC Comics characters. While WB expects to move ahead on most of its projects, if the strike extends past February, the studio will have some reevaluating to do.

The trades are going to announce the cast of Justice League next week, but courtesy someone connected to Ken Ralston I can tell you four confirmed names.

- Adam Brody (THE O.C., GILMORE GIRLS, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING)

- Common (SMOKIN' ACES, WANTED)

- Scott Porter (SPEED RACER 'Rex Racer', FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS tv show, DESCENT, MUSIC AND LYRICS)

- Teresa Palmer (WOLF CREEK, THE GRUDGE 2, DECEMBER BOYS)

Palmer is not Wonder Woman, I believe she's a villain. Brody is Wally West. Common is The Green Lantern. Porter, they think, is Superman. There's also word that Michael Gough might be appearing as Alfred.

The full cast should be revealed by this time next week.

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/34814

btw if you are confused about "Common" like I was, he's a rapper. He's going to be GL. He actually looks pretty good for the part.

Ugh!. Adam Brody as Wally West. For god sake, what happened to all the Ryan Reynolds talk, he was/is the perfect choice.

As for Common, the weird thing when I read that, was that I thought of the Martian Manhunter before I thought Green Lantern. Truth be told, he would probably do either justice, based on the limited screen time I have seen for him (Smokin Aces).

Also, the more I watch The Bionic Woman, the more I think she would play Wonder Woman really well.

He's Repairman Jack baby! I'd prefer Ryan Reynolds in a good Repairman Jack movie over being Flash in a shit JLA movie any day.

According to AICN this is 100% the girl playing Wonder Woman.

galeww3sk6.jpg

Her name is Megan Gale, and she's an Australian supermodel. btw she's 5'10"

I think her acting chops speak for themselves: watch her stunning portrayal of Bette Page

maybe NSFW

It's great that they cast a tall woman for the role, but she's still a bit too thin for my liking. Diana doesn't look frail.

Normally, I'd raise concerns over her acting background,or lack of it, but as this is the JLA movie, I'm none too fussed. She looks pretty good for the role though.
