Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

And of course other movie series have recast their leads, often more than once. James Bond is the classic example, and there are the '80s and '90s Batman movies, but it happened a lot in the early days too -- the Universal Dracula and Frankenstein films, Tarzan films, Perry Mason (who appeared in a movie series starting in the '30s), etc. Not to mention all the recast leading/supporting ladies like Saavik, Rachel Dawes, April O'Neill, Elizabeth from Back to the Future, Evie from The Mummy, etc.

Although it doesn't always prove successful. There was a 1968 film called Inspector Clouseau, the third film with that character, which was made without the involvement of Peter Sellers or Blake Edwards, starring Alan Arkin in the title role. It basically killed the series until Edwards and Sellers resurrected it in 1975.

From what I understood, Howard was difficult to work with, and cost quite a bit.
Yeah, I don't think Cheadle would get better reviews... Howard is like ten times as charismatic.

You forgot the other British series besides Bond that keeps recasting its lead, Doctor Who!

I no longer have hope of this ever being made. Sad considering the game trailers for recent JL titles seem to get it right...epic struggle!

Jennifer from Back to Future, Christopher. You are thinking of Elizabeth Shue who replaced Claudia Wells in the role.

That's a matter of opinion. Nothing against Howard but Cheadle is one of the best actors working. I've been a fan since his days on Picket Fences and he was nothing short of electrifying in Hotel Rwanda.

Now they want Nolan, Goyer, and Snyder to do it, possibly with Bale as Batman:

I'll believe Bale as Batman when they announce he's signed and even then I won't consider it a done deal.

Breaking news from Patton Oswalt on Twitter!

Nolan leaked the JUSTICE LEAGUE cast to me! Batman (Kilmer), Kazaam (Shaq), Patty Smythe from "The Warrior" video & Chester Cheetah.

Why should they copy Marvel?
Because what Marvel did and how they did not only worked but worked fantastically. Why re-invent the wheel?

Anyway, the Internetterbookaverse has been going on about Bale returning as Batman. Anything at all behind that?

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

No offense to Bale but I never need to see him as the Bat again. His character as established in the films would really not work in a JL movie. For those even thinking about not having Bruce under the mask you are all really dreaming. Far to much money invested in the character from a marketing perspective.

No, because I was only talking about movies. Had I included TV series, I would've mentioned the '88 Superboy, and of course Bewitched.

And yet he was just a giant void in Iron Man 2. No wit, verve, charisma...nothing. As good an actor as he is, I'm not yet convinced he was the right choice for Rhodey. Fingers crossed that IM3 gives him something meaty to do.

I'm not convinced either Cheadle or Howard fit the role of Rhodey.
