In light of the recent geeklist Favorite Comic Book Characters I thought it would be nice to make a list casting our favorite characters in movies. This is something my comic shop guy and I do on a regular basis, so here goes:

The Flash - This superhero movie needs to happen, and it needs to be Wally West as the Flash.

The perfect actor to play Wally would be Ryan Reynolds, and he wants to do it.

The Green Lantern - Again, this MUST be Hal Jordan. Hal is THE best GL in the universe.

This actor needs to be able to look rugged. I think Jamie Bamber, Apollo from Battlestar Galactica fame, would be a nice fit.

On to our first female. Wonder Woman really deserves her own movie. It would market really well, both to empowered females and fanboys alike. She's a bit harder to cast, but I think Missy Peregrym would be a pretty good fit. She's physical enough, but maybe not chesty enough? They could do the same thing they did with Brandon Routh and pad the costume.

Captain America is a bit of a problem. I mean..he's a freaking super soldier AND golden boy. How do you cast that. There are a lot of good candidates, but many of them, in my opinion, are too short. That would particularly include Matt Damon
who showed he had the martial arts chops in the Bourne movies. He's only 5'10" though.

Mark Valley
would also be a good choice, especially since he is a West Point grad. But again, he's only 5'11".

Colin Ferguson
could also work, as he's 6'0".

I'd personally LOVE to see a Queen & Country movie. It is a fantastic look at international espionage and deserves a movie. Tara Chase needs to be attractive, but not gorgeous, but also physical, but not overly intimidating. She also should have a nice wit. I think Anna Friel could work

Thor. How the hell do you cast the Norse GOD of Thunder? This one is even harder than Captain America. Thor needs to be at least 6'3", right?
Karl Urban
could potentially work. He's 6'1" but he'd have to get a lot more built.

If Phil Pfister
, a recent World's strongest man competitor can act, he'd be perfect.

Alan Moore's Top Ten would make a great movie if it was done properly.

Casting??

Dust Devil Duane - Sam Elliot
Toy Box - Scalett Johanson?
Smax - Michael Clarke Duncan
Jet Lad - John Hurt

I don't know. I'm actually not into comic book movies so much (although lately they seem to be getting better). I am getting the impression that all this hype about Comic Movies is like Comic fans saying, hey, this medium is no good. Give us our favorite stories in a movie... then I can get into it.

I think they are fine just as they are... as comics.
