TOP 5 COMIC BOOK MOVIE CASTING CALLS
I think if you ask most (if not all) Green Lantern fans this would have been their choice for the role. He has since voiced Jordan in the Justice League: Doom animated feature...
There have been a couple of Girl Wonders in comics and I think Browning has shown (was I the only person that enjoyed Sucker Punch?) she could succeed in bringing the character to the big screen.
Right now Gosling is the moody brooding king of Hollywood with the acting chops to back it up and so would be perfect for everyone's favorite supernatural detective. A lot of fan-boys place the stink of the Constantine flick square at the feet of Keanu Reeves personally I blame the hacks that made it, for me Reeves at least looked like he was trying which is more than anyone else involved in that picture can say.
There was never any chance of this ever happening (at any time) in the real world but the idea of Dirty Harry taking the law to the streets of Mega City 1 would have been as close to perfect as it's possible to get after all isn't Dredd just Harry in a costume any way...
I recently read Mark Evanier's book 'Kirby: King of Comics' and after it I couldn't help think that Kirby's life was an Oscar winning movie waiting to happen with a worthy actor like Pacino playing the role of one of the all time great American artists and contributors to modern popular culture.
