If any of you used to collect Wizard magazine, then you should remember the comic book movie casting call! This was always a fun section of the
magazine for me, so I have decided to create a few of my own.
Now, these movies are NOT actual movies in the works, just who I would cast if I were to direct it. At the end I’ll link my other casting call
Feel free to let me know if you agree or disagree with my decisions!
If you disagree, who would you want to play that role and why?
If I left some important characters out, then add them!
Ok here goes!
Casting Call #2: Frank Miller’s: The Dark Knight Returns!
That’s right! In celebration of the upcoming film The Dark Knight, I thought it would be a good idea to tackle one of my all time favorite graphic
novels, The Dark Knight Returns!
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is set 20 years in the future. In the absence of superheroes, ordinary criminals run amok (all the supervillains
having been incarcerated or otherwise killed), and a gang called the Mutants made up of schoolchildren terrorize Gotham City. Batman has been retired
from crime fighting for ten years following the death of Jason Todd, the second Robin. Despite Wayne's funding for the rehabilitation of Harvey Dent
(Two-Face), Dent returns to crime. Wayne dons the Batman costume again and apprehends Dent, but in an increasingly media obsessed society, the
populace debates publically whether Batman is a savior or a menace. en.wikipedia.org..." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">Source
So, I know you guys want to go straight to Bats, but come on! You guys know I’m gonna save the best for last! But we have one hell of a line up
here, from the Joker to Superman!
But first off, let’s start with the New Robin!
Carrie Kelley, 13 years old. She becomes Robin, and is accepted by the Batman after saving his life.
So, for this casting call, we’re looking for a tom boyish actress who would look cute in a little skirt… any thoughts?
Well I had one, none other than miss Veronica Mars… eh’ I mean miss Kristen Bell!
Now I know what you’re thinking! She would look more than cute in a skirt, but this is the 21st century! You need some sort of sexual appeal in a
movie nowadays, and Kristen Bell will definitely do that! Not to mention she got down and dirty like a tomboy in her Veronica Mars TV series, which
makes Kristen Bell and excellent candidate for the new Robin!
