They Cast Cyborg For Batman Vs. Superman!


They cast a Cyborg for 2016’s upcoming Batman Vs. Superman, so I think it might be safe to start calling it The Justice League.  The man they cast for Cyborg is a relatively unknown stage actor by the name of Ray Fisher.  I am sure he will be fine, but the question is now what heroes are they going to use to fill out the rest of the Justice League.  Since they haven’t announced an Arrow or a Flash, and the Flash is a founding Justice League member, it is starting to lend credence to the rumor that they are just going to use the actors and characters form the TV shows.  Still I would like to throw a few more heroes in to this flick:

Green Lantern:


I love the Green Lantern, so this would be a perfect time to re-introduce him, and why not use John Stewart or Guy Gardner.  They can forget all about the other Green Lantern, and start all over.  It would be awesome.



They say they are still working on the Justice League Dark movie, so it would make sense to have a crossover, and Zatanna is in both Leagues.  As an added bonus she is one of Batman’s few true friends, and if he is going to fight Superman he would need someone powerful in his corner.



While she is not super well known outside of comic book circles and Cosplay conventions, she knows how to kick butt and take names.  I think people would understand an awesome girl with a cool stick without too much back story.  Honestly she is like DC’s version of Captain America, but I see no problem with that.

Martian Manhunter:


While he is kind of a stretch, he does run the League, so I think he needs to be in this movie in some fashion.  Heck he could even be the one to stop Superman and Batman from killing each other since he is pretty invincible himself.



I have never really liked any of the Robin’s, but Dick Grayson as Nightwing has always been one of my favorites.  He has Batman’s code, but he seems to actually care about the people he is saving.  In other words he is not a cold and calculating jerk all the time.  Plus something tells me Bats will need the backup.

Who would you like to see in the Justice Leauge movie?  Any big Red Tornado fans out there? (Of course there isn’t)  The nice thing about the JL is there are like six billion heroes to choose from, and while a lot of them are subpar it is always fun to see them show up from time to time.

I Cast Jem and The Holograms!


I was going to review another comic book today, but yesterday The Hollywood Reporter dropped the bomb that a Jem and The Holograms movie was being fast tracked with Jon M. Chu (G.I Joe: Retaliation) to direct.  Well what could I do but to cast this movie for them, so they can get right to work!  I have little cousins that need to see this work of art!  This was the hardest movie I have cast due to the fact I know of almost no actors in the right age group for this, but here it goes:

Rio Pacheco:


At first I was thinking James Franco because he is up for anything, but he is a little old for this flick, so I went with family!  Dave Franco.  The kid can act, and much like his brother, he is in all sorts of random crap movies.


Aja Leith:


I had no idea on this one, and searching for “Young Talented Asian Actresses” is not something that anyone should try.  Unless you like feeling like a creep and getting viruses.  To each their own I suppose, so I went with the only one I could think of: Brenda Song.  She has done good work on movies like The Social Network, and it would be good to get her away from Dads. BrendaSong

Carmen ‘Raya’ Alonso:


I was in a similar situation as with Aja, so again I went with someone I know, and why not have a Disney Channel reunion movie while we are at it.  I went with superstar Selena Gomez.  Boom!  This movie just made a billion dollars.  Seriously I am the best casting director ever!

Shana Elmsford:


This choice was surprisingly easy.  I was just watching an interview about the new movie Divergent, and it was with the charming Zoë Kravitz.  She can sing, and she can act!  Man I am good at my fake job.


Kimber Benton:


So we need someone young and spunky that we can believe is a song writer?  I am going to go with Elle Fanning.  Put her in a red wig and we are good to go.


Jem – Jerrica Benton:


Well Elle kind of gave this one away, but if you are going to have sisters in the movie, and you have two talented sisters anyway, why not use them?  Dakota Fanning.  The Fanning sisters, and Selena Gomez?!  Man. Best movie, EVER!


I am never going to cast a little girls’ movie ever again.  I was way out of depth, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.  I hope you enjoyed my choices.

Who Should Play Ms. Marvel?


With the exciting news that news that Ms. Marvel is going to be in the next Avengers movie a lot of people have been asking me who I think should play Carol Danvers.  Fox already has two of my top picks under contract for super heroes with Rebecca Romijn and Jennifer Lawrence.  Ironically they both play the same character Mystique separated by time.  The current internet favorite is Katee Sackhoff, but I am not sold, so here are my five alternates in reverse order.

5: Yvonne Strahovski


I mostly chose her because she has the look, but she has had a lot of practice playing a hero thanks to Chuck.

4: Ali Larter


Again she is another “got the look” choice, but in TV show Heroes she was really good at giving that I am going to kill you look that would suit Ms. Marvel very well.

3: Emily Blunt


She would need some hair dye, but she is talented actress who could hold her own against the growing number of leading men in the Avengers film.

2: Claire Danes


She might be busy with Homeland, but ever since the underappreciated movie Stardust, I have been wanting to see her breakout in movies.  She has the acting chops to really bring Ms. Marvel to life.

1: Anna Trov


The Fringe star has the ability to kick butt and dish one liners with the best of them.  She will never get picked because she is too perfect for the role, but if they did, I would be one happy Shmee.

Movie studios never seem to like my casting choices, but I will keep offering my advice anyway!  Do you guys or gals have any favorites to play the current Captain Marvel?

They Finally Cast A Wonder Woman!


Well it must be very cold someplace hot because they have finally cast Wonder Woman for the Batman vs Superman movie, Gal Gadot!  I have not seen much of what Gal Gadot has been in, but maybe that is good since I will not have any preconceived ideas about her acting abilities unlike the man set to be Batman.  She may not be my choice, but she has got the look, and has been in a few action movies, so I wish her the best.  With the main cast set, I hope this movie gets DC’s comic book cinematic universe rolling!

Shmee Picks Wonder Woman!


I decided that since I keep crying about Warner Brothers not making a Wonder Woman movie, that I would make their job easier by picking Princess Diana of Themyscira myself.  Here are my top five picks:

5: Ashley Greene


I have to admit that I mostly just picked her because she has the look.  She has been the in the awful Twilight movies, but I won’t hold that against her because she looks like Lynda Carter’s daughter.  The fact that she is young and unknown works in her favor, so she could wear the red, white, and blue for a long time.

4: Kate Beckinsale


She has been a leading female action star for a long time now, and that might make her too obvious for this role, but movie goers would believe that she could beat up the bad guys while in the uniform, and that is a good thing.

3: Gina Carano

Gina Carano

She is an MMA fighter turned actress known mostly for her role in Haywire.  Unlike the other women on this list, she can beat up bad guys in real life, so being the first lady of super heroes should be pretty easy for her.

2: Jaime Alexander


Jaime already has a good job as a super hero as one of Thor’s side kicks, Sif, but she has proven that she could take on the fight by herself, so why not cross enemy lines from Marvel and star as one of the best super heroes period for DC.  She has the look and the acting chops, so she would be a slam dunk.

1: Gina Torres


The other actresses on this list may have the classic Wonder Woman look, but Gina has the feel and grandeur of Wonder Woman down.  I would feel very safe if I knew she had come from Themyscira to protect the mortals.  Plus as a geek favorite, she would get butts in seats which would be important to executive types.

That is my list, and I am sure you disagree with me, so I would love to have you post your list women to be the Amazing Amazon.
