    That would be awesome. Then they could make a season of Arrow where him and Ollie travel the country, seeing America and fighting evil as they go.

    When I first saw David Ramsey on Arrow I thought he would make a perfect John Stewart.

    As to casting Lex as an African American? You thought Batfleck was an internet shitstorm?

    Having said that, I think Denzel Washington would make a great Lex.

    Idris Elba and Colin Salmon are great choices as well.

    The Hollywood Reporter| 'Batman-Superman': Chris Terrio To Write

    Haven't seen 'Argo', yet. (I know, believe me, I'm ashamed about that). But if it's as good as people say, Terrio is probably a very good choice, especially since Goyer - while being a decent writer - has some serious flaws, and it's always good having another writer go over his scripts.

    This is also a good sign for all who've hoped Affleck would have some creative influence on the movie beyond playing Batman.

    I could see Phoenix as Luthor pretty easily. He certainly has the acting chops to handle him. I would say excellent choice if it happens.

    He would be a good choice for Lex. Or any other number of villains really.

    He'd be a terrible Maxima.

    It's possible that they plan to lightly establish some of these characters in this film as world-building, but they won't play a significant role until the Justice League film proper.

    I don't mind them adding more characters from the comics, but on the other hand if this is supposed to be Superman/Batman movie, then I would really don't want to see them bringing in a bunch of other superheroes who are going to draw attention away from them. I'm really hopping that if this is true, that he is just playing a smaller supporting role just to introduce him. Same goes for Wonder Woman.

    It could be that they'll fit very well within the context of the story. I'm guessing that they'll be going for an angle of Superman's existence having let the genie out of the bottle, and it's an angle that they want to get out of the way in this film to pave the way for the big team film.

    That is what I am hoping! I was disappointed that this was not going to be another solo Superman. I could accept that Batman would be in the movie but I am getting a little worried that this is turning into less and less of a Superman movie.

    Denzel Washington as Green Lantern? Don't bet the farm on it.

    Oh Warner... so far you only managed to get ONE superhero done successfully, and that trilogy is over. All other recent attempts at DC heroes have failed. And now you want to pack all of them into one movie? Forget it.

    They're not thinking about that. They're thinking about all of the money that The Avengers made and assuming that they can replicate that success, while forgetting what Marvel had to do first in order to create it.

    I think they know what Marvel had to do and have found that they're not up to the task...so they're going for broke.

    Can't wait for the announcement of yet another Batman, Superman and Whateverman reboot in two years. Getting the ever so exciting origin stories all over again.

    Not sure what Supes' emergence has to do with an alien ring latching on to a human (and why wouldn't it go for Kal-El, anyway?), but, okay... :p
