Black Rock

Christopher Reeve as Superman. Jim Carrey as Riddler. Patrick Stewart as Xavier. Ron Perlman as Hellboy. Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan. Thora Birch & Scarlet Johannson as Enid & Rebecca. Paul Giamatti as Harvey Pekar. And . . .that's it.

Perfect comic book casting is so rare. But . . . look!

Born to play the part? Bit of an understatement, that. Count me officially excited about the Shazam! movie more than any other superhero movie being made right now. Except maybe the Deathnote spin-off L.

Helps to be a Rock fanboy, too. Which I am.

um, yeah. perfect casting. oh, do add Christian Bale as Batman to that list. and Alfred Molina as Doc Ock.

FAB said...

Yep, ok but can he act the part?

Hope so.

I've seen some of his scenes from Richard Kelly's upcoming Southland Tales. And his Oscar-baiting in Gridiron Gang. And he was the best thing in the dog turds that were Be Cool and Doom. I have faith.

The Rock rocks! Hehe. :) (WWF fanboy slipped out there, sorry.)

And yeah - - - Molina as Doc Ock. Spot-on.

Oh and I'd add Hugh Jackman as Wolverine to the list . . .but I still haven't gotten over the perfection of the rumored first choice: Glenn Danzig. ;)
