Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Incredibly Morose and Disenfranchised Man!
Best For Film – bringing you AMAZING CASTING DECISIONS since 2010.
This summer, you can hardly move for superhero films – and Green Lantern aside, we’ve seen most of the stars before. All the classic heroes have had a fair few outings with different faces by now, and if there’s one thing we hate about competition it’s not knowing who’s the WINNER. Feel like arbitrarily deciding whether Michael Keaton’s better at being grumpy than Christian Bale? Good.
There’s no such thing as a predictable superhero casting – all the best Avengers, X-Men and otherwise pumped-up persons are unlikely characters who stumble into their crime-fighting alter egos just as unexpectedly as do the actors cast to play them. With so many A-list actors now boasting a brush with superheroism on their CVs, we’ve come up with a few new suggestions…
“Good morning, chief!” “Great Caesar’s ghost! How many times must I tell you? Don’t call me chief!”
You had your chance, Kate Bosworth.
