Yes. He's a pretty good actor. My first choice for him to play would be Taskmaster, but I could see him in a lot of different roles.

He’s not a very good actor. He seems wooden in just about everything he does. I think it’s his charisma, it always feels very ‘written on the page.’

@havenless:

He wasn't that bad in Mission Impossible.

And he's not exactly bad either he just plays what the director asks him to play.

Not really sure what role would be best for him, but I wouldn’t mind at all

Yeah, I’d be down. There’s a lot of different roles I think he could be a good fit for.

Hercules is definitely one, Captain Britain would be the top pick, Hyperion is obvious or Wonder Man, And if they decide to recast Captain America one day I mean just dye his hair blonde and he could do it.

He was great in MAN from UNCLE and the new MI movie. He would be a great hero or villain.

Why? So he can give up another Iconic character due to impatience? No thanks.

Why not? If it's something that suits him, of course.

I don’t understand the question. He is an actor. It’s not like he’s the real superman

I think Mission Impossible was a role that played to his strengths. Man from UNCLE was extremely wooden, Sand Castle he played a military officer so the stuck-upness worked, but even that wasn't particularly great.

I know a lot of people like him, but he doesn't have that Je ne sais quoi. Imagine if he looked nothing like Superman. People would say he was a terrible choice for the role. Michael Keaton did the heavy lifting to make you believe he was Batman even though he looks almost nothing like the archetype. Tobey Maguire made Spider-Man his own. I can't tell you how perplexed I was that Elijah Wood was cast as Bilbo. Seemed just off. But he made it his own.

I really believe people like Cavill so much because he looks like Superman from the comics, and his acting is passable enough. I am of the full opinion of getting the best actor possible, and worrying about comic-accurate fit later. Cavill is obviously a much better actor, but it does remind me of when people wanted Triple H to be Thor. I think his career is going to look a lot more like Brandon Routh's once this Superman thing is done than it will Chris Hemsworth's.

Yeah, why not. I don't like his Superman interpretation, but he's still a great actor. I always thought he would make a great Namor.

Problem is, I heard that once actors have played in DC/Warner, they don't get a gig at Disney/Marvel.

i'd prefer it... WB is just wasting his talent and now they don't even want him back (which is sheer idiocy but hey they hired Snyder so...)

Depends entirely on what character he plays. I wouldn't want to see him as the Green Goblin, for instance.

He’s never gonna do it, but who knows.

Anyway, wouldn’t really mind, but then again, I don’t think he’d do it.

Would love it!

Definitely would hope they’d give him an extended contract given how horrible DC treated him
