4. Danny Trejo as The Main Man Lobo
Who’s Lobo? Okay, imagine the most brutal Wolverine, multiply that by 2, add some space origins, a space bike, and a hook chain. Basically, he’s one of the best antiheroes in DC. Hollywood’s been tinkering with Lobo scripts for years now but nothing’s been finalized. And I’m afraid that with the (mental) flop of the Justice League, we won’t see him any time soon. But then there’s Danny Trejo, who’d make a perfect Main Man, tweeted at DC the greatest art of himself as Lobo. Hint-hint, DC!

 

 

5. Nicolas Cage as Superman
You know, when you name your own son Kal-El (as in Superman’s Kryptonian name), people will start to question your sanity. But then again, if your name is Nicolas Cage, they’ll understand. So yeah, Cage is a huge Super buff, and was even cast as him at one point. The movie was being directed by Tim Burton, with Cage as Superman… You can clearly see it had zero chance of being developed further. After running the test footage the project was dumped almost immediately.


6. Daniel Radcliffe as Robin
After his long and fruitful career as Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe’s acting gigs went a little bit downhill. He tried, and the movies were decent, but it’s just not what we wanted to see. He stated that if the DC were to reboot their universe again, he’d be totally up for the role of Batman’s sidekick – Robin. But it’s been a while and Affleck’s allegedly retiring from playing Batman after the “Flash” movie, so this probably won’t happen, but there’s still chance he’ll be Night wing or Red Hood!
