I'm aware that I just did one of these. Big whoop, wanna fight about it?
Anyway, after doing my JLA fancast, I showed it to a friend who started talking to me about the one comic we both read -- Gotham City Sirens. This is what we came up with.
1. Catwoman - Olga Kurylenko
Funny accents can be fixed. Being incredibly hot with short hair and having distinctly feline features stays with you. She's been in cool-ass movies like Hitman and Centurion, she was awesome in both of them, and she's my pick for Selina Kyle. She even has green eyes! See? SEE?!
2. Poison Ivy - Christina Hendricks
I've always tended to picture Ivy as very curvy (the artwork generally doesn't help). Therefore, the natural choice would be someone that google cannot find a picture of that's rated under PG-13. Hendricks is also ginger, would look good green, can play smart, and is, in general, a very talented actress. Just don't tell her that you have more respect for her thunderous boobage than her acting skillz.
3. Harley Quinn - Zooey Deschanel
Zooey and Harley share one very important trait -- OMGCUTE. Her massive blue eyes mirror Harley's nicely, as does her innocent face and girlish smile. She's not a terribly experienced actress, but I've seen what she can do, and even roles that make me pretty confident that she could play Harley. So... yeah. She's my pick. (And I've considered a lot of people.)
4. Zatanna - Rachel McAdams
Rachel McAdams have proven a few things over her career.
1) She's good
2) She looks amazing in fishnets
3) She can play smart
She came to mind immediately when I was pondering the crafty and showmanly Zatanna.
5. Riddler - Neil Patrick Harris
He's funny. He's classy. He can easily play the smart, inferiority-complex-having, cane-twirling Riddler and I doubt anyone will disagree.
6. Batman (Dick Grayson) - Hayden Christensen
Okay, let's hear it. "WE HATE HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN. WE HATE YOU TOO, JOYGIRL. YOU GET YOUR CLOWNY ASS STRAIGHT TO HELL FOR EVEN MENTIONING HIS NAME."
Did I get it about right? Okay, here we go.
You hate him because he was in Star Wars, You hate him because he SUCKED in Star Wars. Note that EVERYONE sucked in Star Wars.
I've seen him in a good few things -- Star Wars, Jumper, Awake, the wholly forgettable Life as a House -- and I think he can play Dick. He's shown that he can pull off the overconfident, playful bachelor, and he's in good enough shape that he could be doing action scenes better than Christian Bale's before long.
Considered listing Joker... but I'll save him for another time.
Thanks for reading, folks, I hope you enjoy and like the list!
