As a comic book movie fan, I’m always looking forward to the various studios announcing their casting decisions. Like, that time when they told us Benedict Cumberbatch would play the Sorcerer Supreme, or when the new Spider-Man was announced to be Tom Holland – I love those guys! Of course, where there’s love, there’s also… disappointment. Remember when DC/WB chose Ben Affleck for the role of Batman? I was WTF’ing left and right, but eventually I admit I was very wrong, and his depiction of the Caped Crusader was top-notch. However that’s not always the case. Sometimes the role was too small for a great actor, other times it was the actor was just plain wrong for the part.
Now let’s see some of these “bad casting decisions”, and let me know if you agree!
David Harbour showed us what he’s really got in the Netflix’s Stranger Things series, and I bet he’s going to make an awesome Hellboy in Mike Mignola’s reboot. But there was one role that kinda missed the target, and I bet you haven’t even noticed it! He played a government official who had almost zero screen time in the Suicide Flop, I mean “Squad”. Yeah, Harbour was in it and we didn’t even see him! What the hell, Ayer? Couldn’t you at least give him the role of that guard the Joker threatens? What a waste of talent…
