So, guys, instead of introducing the article, I'm gonna get right to the point.
1. Man of Steel
I had very little problems with this movie, and I certainly loved a Superman movie kicking off the DCEU. I just think it could've been something...more. I don't think it should have been an origin story, and I don't think it should have been as dark. I'd have kept Zod as the villain, but I would have involved more romance and fun in the story. It'd feel more like a Marvel film, not because I dislike dark superhero fare, but because Superman should have a funny, lighthearted popcorn flick rather than an explosion-filled blockbuster. I'd also keep Henry Cavill in the title role, but I'd also have a Lex Luthor cameo.
- Henry Cavill as Superman
- Olivia Wilde as Lois Lane
- Michael Shannon as Zod
- Russell Crowe as Jor-El
- Miles Teller as Jimmy Olsen
- Nick Offerman as Perry White
- Michael Fassbender as (briefly) Lex Luthor
See, THIS is where the dark part of the superhero genre comes in. This movie would be set before Man of Steel and partially adapt the "Year One" storyline, but have Joker as the villain instead of Carmine Falcone.
- Karl Urban as Batman
- JK Simmons as Jim Gordon
- Emma Stone as Barbara Gordon
- Jake Gyllenhaal as The Joker
- Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne
- Laurence Fishburne as Lucius Fox
I wouldn't change anything about this movie, except for NO STEVE TREVOR. He is a present-day character.
Batman/Superman: World's Finest
Batman and Superman are supposed to team up, not fight! Anyway, this movie would have Lex Luthor as the villain and combine most of the cast from the previous Batman and Superman films. In the post-credit scene, it would set up Justice League.
This movie would be an origin story, and have The Rogues (Captain Cold, Heatwave, Captain Boomerang, Mirror Master and Weather Wizard) as the villains. The metas' origin would be the result of an exploding Mother Box at STAR Labs.
- Garrett Hedlund as Barry Allen
- Kiersey Clemmons as Iris West
- Charlie Rowe as Wally West (NOTE: Wally is Iris' adopted brother instead of her nephew in this movie)
- Sebastian Stan as Captain Cold
- Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang
I haven't cast the rest of them.
Green Lantern Corps
This movie would feature most of the GLC members, but no Kyle Rayner or Guy Gardner. It wouldn't be an origin story. Sinestro would be the villain of the movie.
- Chris Pine as Hal Jordan
- Idris Elba as John Stewart
- Vin Diesel as the voice of Kilowog
- Matt Smith as Tomar-Tu
- Kate Mara as Arisia
- Luke Evans as Sinestro
This movie would have Darkseid instead of Steppenwolf and partially adapt the "New 52 War" storyline.
Henry Cavill as Superman
Karl Urban as Batman
Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
Garrett Hedlund as The Flash
Chris Pine as Green Lantern (Jordan)
Idris Elba as Green Lantern (Stewart)
Charlie Hunnam as Aquaman
Michael B. Jordan as Cyborg
Zachary Levi as Shazam
Denzel Washington as Martian Manhunter
