Who's Next? Part Two

By Corey Floyd

A few months ago, I talked about potential casting choices in future comic book based films. If you haven’t seen it check it out here http://amerimemedia.blogspot.com/2017/03/whos-next-part-1.html?view=mosaic . Now I’m ready to return to the casting gauntlet with a few more roles and who should play them. None of these are set in stone by any studio just a few thoughts on who can play who.
  
First in our lineup is Edward Nigma aka the Riddler. He is part of Batman rogue’s gallery known for using more brain and a lot less brawn truly a match of intellect for batman. Since Cory Michael Smith is covering the more psychotic side of Riddler in the Gotham series I want to focus more on the methodical side of him. There has been a huge fan push for Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons to play him. I don’t think I would work out well because Sheldon is too damn annoying and the portrayal would become comedic. I think Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds would work out very well.  Besides he’s already played him in the Assault on Arkham animated movie (better than Suicide Squad check it out). Let’s be honest at least DC animation is right on the money more the DCEU this choice would be great. He has already shown on his hit show that he can be smart and dangerous without touching a weapon.  

My next Idea is Adam Warlock. 

For those of you who watched the extra credit scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy. You know that they hinted at Adam Warlock in the next Guardians film. The next stage in evolution for The Sovereign. Naturally is going to be different from his original origin. I was scratching my head about this one for a while but I think I have a winner.

Jared Padalecki from the long running Supernatural series is a sure bet in my book. He has shown a lot of growth as an actor in this series and maybe it’s time for him to return to the silver screen just like Warlock he can be a good or bad guy plus he has the potential physique already has the hair. His first two adventures in film were not the best projects (Friday the 13th reboot & House of Wax reboot) but maybe third time's the charm. Maybe we can throw Jensen Ackles in as the new John Blaze too.

My Last choice is a hard one because there are no official announcements so call this wishful thinking.

IronHeart aka Riri Williams the teenage prodigy. I feel like when they announce the next phase for marvel studios this will be one of the steps being made. Not saying that they will Kill off RDJ’s Iron Man but perhaps he takes a leave of absence and a certain young lady builds her own. Now I have a couple of choices here so here me out. My first choice is Amandla Stenberg. Most remembered for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games she has been consistently working on film and TV. Her current film Everything shows a display of an innocent side (warning this film will come for your tears). While the real attitude she gives off in real life will transition very well to screen. She is at the perfect age to cast for this role, it would be just like hiring Tom Holland as Spiderman.

My other draft pick is Skai Jackson. Who, at such a Young age, has a work history challenging some adults in Hollywood. She's already been called the next big star. She has a very strong fan base thanks to her roles on Nickelodeon & Disney. Either choice would really work out. I think Disney would love to have one of their stars from the little screen make to the Big screen and still be under their roof.


Of course, all these picks are just my opinion. I assume you have a few of you own don’t be shy hit us up on FB, Instagram & Twitter.
