Batman Beyond Fancast

For my first fancast, I chose one of my favorite series, Batman Beyond. I tried to use some out of the box picks and keep it original, so let me know what you think.

Batman Beyond Fancast

Terry McGinnis/Liam Hemsworth

I have seen a lot of people put Logan Lerman on a lot of fan casts for Terry, but I think he is too small for the role. I think Liam Hemsworth has the right edge necessary for Terry and do justice to the role.

And for the big guy…

Bruce Wayne/Robert Redford

Now I know this seems odd at first, but I think Redford would be perfect in this role. I saw an article on here a while ago that says at one time Paul Newman was the studio’s choice when they were considering making a movie. I thought that Newman would be perfect, but since he is dead I began thinking of other actors like him and I thought of Redford from when they did Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. He is the right age and definitely has the chops for an older Bruce. If you go back and watch Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid he can definitely pull off a great older Batman.

Barbara Gordon/Linda Hamilton

For Barbara I think we need a really badass actress and who better than Sarah Connor herself. Her in T2 is just perfect for an older Barbara.

Sam Young/Delroy Lindo

The husband of Barbara Gordon not a big role. I loved Lindo in Gone in 60 seconds and think that he looks just like Sam Young.

Derek Powers(Blight)/Michael Douglas

Who better than Gordon Gekko himself as Derek Powers. Just go back and watch either Wall Street movie and you know he would be awesome in this role.

Dana Tan/Brenda Song

I know this one isn’t very original, but I looked online for a while and there aren’t that many young hot Asian actresses who can also act. I considered Jamie Chung, but at 29 I felt that she was too old in comparison to Hemsworth so I went with Brenda Song. I think in the Social Network she proved herself to be a good actress and worthy of a bigger role.

Max Gibson/Kat Graham

This is the pick I struggled with the most, but I think Kat Graham would be a good pick. She’s the right age, only a year older than Hemsworth and I believe that she does a great job on the Vampire Diaries and could do a great Max, but if anyone has any better suggestions I’m definitely open to whomever.

Warren McGinnis/Sam Neill

I know that this isn’t a very big role, but I feel that its important to have a veteran actor play Terry’s dad and I think that Sam Neill has the right feel to portray this part and convey the right emotions to motivate Terry to become Batman.

Mary McGinnis/Julianne Moore

This pick has been used a lot, but I recently saw The Kids are all Right and while watching it I had this in mind. If you watch that movie she is perfect as a mom and could do a great job in this role.

Matt McGinnis/Colin Ford

I have only seen him on Supernatural, but I think he does a great job as a young Sam would nail the role of Matt.

The Joker/Tim Drake/Michael Shannon

Ever since I saw him in Revolutionary Road I thought he would make a great villain, particularly the Joker. I think it might be cool if Tim started to resemble the Joker as he got older as a result of the Joker’s experiments as seen in Batman Beyond Return of the Joker. If you’ve seen his monologue in Revolutionary Road you know he would make a great joker.

That's it for now, tell me what you guys think.

Your Bruce Wayne cast is brilliant! I absolutely love it! I really like all of your other picks, the only one I would be iffy about is Terry but that's just because I like Liam for Aquaman!

This is a very good cast. Liam would be good as Terry and Robert Redford is a very original casting for Bruce. I like your Max pick mainly because she is hot and I like the Vampire Diaries.

A very original cast, and that being said, I love it! Great picks, too, and I can't find much to complain about. Perhaps Shannon, because he'll be Zod in Man of Steel, but he'd be brilliant, too. Terrific job! :)

Likin' this ALOT brah! A little black dye and he'd be terrific for Terry. On board with everyone , but one.

My only 'on the fence' is Max. Max is a major player in Terry's world. I'd say after his family and Wayne , it's Max! So we need a really gifted actress here who is super cute and has a pair on her. I'm not good at casting so I hope someone reading this can think of someone. Maybe this girl you picked is the one; I just don't know her, and she's a looks a little too 'white'.

All of your choices fit for me even though I have my own choices.

Terry: I haven't seen Liam act but if he is anywhere near as talented as his brother he would be good. My choice is Sean Faris though he is probably too old now.

Bruce Wayne: Robert Redford is a good pick but I prefer Ed Harris.

Derek Powers: Michael Douglas is a great choice but I like John Slattery.

the rest are good.

This is truly great. I've loved Liam Hemsworth for a while, he's my Red Ranger in a power rangers reboot. Great cast, love it all. Except maybe an Older Bruce should be changed.. Michael Keton?
