Who Should Be in the (non-existent) Justice League: International Movie?
A Justice League movie has already been announced that will no doubt star the most famous heroes from DC Comics like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. With DC’s New 52 reboot came the Justice League International series about a group of superheroes put together by the U.N. to protect the world. If they ever decide to make a film with these characters, here are the people we’d like to see in it.
Ryan Kwanten as Booster Gold (Michael Jon Carter)
Booster Gold is an American hotshot superhero who enjoys being in the public eye and getting plenty of attention. He has power through a suit that gives him super strength and force blasts. Kwanten may be from Australia but his performance on True Blood shows he can play the cocky American pretty boy perfectly.
Danai Gurira as Vixen (Mari Jiwe McCabe)
Mari Jiwe McCabe grew up in the fictional African nation Zambesi. She has the power to mimic any ability of any animal that has lived on Earth. Danai was born in the US but her parents are from Zimbabwe. She plays Michonne on The Walking Dead, a character famous for her fighting skills and tough-as-nails attitude, which I believe proves Danai has what it takes to play a superhero.
Konstantin Khabenskiy as Rocket Red (Gavril Ivanovich)
Russian superhero Gavril Ivanovich’s power comes from his armored battle suit and “forced evolution”. Konstantin Khabenskiy is a Russian actor known for his roles in Wanted, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Night Watch.
Alice Eve as Godiva (Dora Leigh)
Dora Leigh, or Godiva, is a British socialite and superhero with the power to control her hair’s movement as if they were her limbs, providing a high level of superhuman strength and dexterity. When thinking about this superhero we need a beautiful blonde flirt from the UK. Alice Eve not only fits that description but she can act too.
Donnie Yen as August General in Iron
The August General in Iron is a member of an elite Chinese spec ops unit trained for encounters with aliens. He has superhuman strength and skin covered with iron-like plates. Donnie Yen is a Chinese actor who specializes in action movies such as Hero, Blade II, and IP Man. His penchant for martial arts and stunt work would come in handy for a superhero role.
Alice Braga as Fire (Beatriz da Costa)
Beatriz da Costa is a Brazilian supermodel turned government agen with the power to generate green flames. Alice Braga is a Brazilian actress popular for her roles in I Am Legend, City of God, and Predators. She has experience in action movies and would make a great candidate for this role.
Michael C. Hall as Green Lantern (Guy Gardner)
Guy Gardner grew up in Baltimore, United States and later became a Green Lantern. American actor Michael C. Hall is famous for playing Dexter on the hit Showtime show. He’s talented enough to bring dimension to the hot-blooded hero that is Guy Gardner.
Ingrid Bolsø Berdal as Ice (Tora Olafsdotter)
Tora Olafsdotter is a princess of an isolated tribe of magic-wielding Norsemen with the natural ability to create and manipulate ice. Ingrid is a Norwegian actress with roles in Chernobyl Diaries, Cold Prey and Cold Prey 2. Her role in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters called for action work, something that would come in handy when playing a superhero.
Merveille Lukeba as Batwing
David Zavimbe is a former child-soldier who was recruited by Batman to become Batwing, a member of the Batman Incorporated. Like Batwing, Merveille is from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He is perhaps most known for his role as Thomas in the UK hit show Skins.
