Controversial Superhero Casting Choices in Upcoming Movies

No Comments
Heath Ledger as the Joker

Remember back when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker in The Dark Knight, fresh out of a cowboy drama about gays? Remember the reaction of the superhero movie fans when the announcement was made?

Well, these next superhero casting choices brought the same reactions, although it is unconfirmed yet whether or not the fans were right to dislike the choices made by the directors.

There is no particular order to this list.

When Ben Affleck was cast as Batman, a new superhero was born: Batfleck. Obviously, this was no compliment for the actor, even if he has proven himself time and time again as a worthy lead actor (and not only).

The fans of the superhero genre simply cannot forget that he destroyed Daredevil back in 2003 (although it was not entirely his fault).

Sure enough, seeing him in action has brought some of the fans on the other side of the barricade, in the sense that they now accept him. However, there are still those who hate Batfleck – whether it is his Daredevil role, whether it is his political options, whether it is his ancestry, plenty of reasons for the hate are found.

On the other hand, Warner Bros knows what it’s doing, since he was announced as the director of The Batman, the reboot of the superhero franchise.

On the next page, that girl from Fast & Furious (since she doesn’t have too many credits as an actress)!
