5 Superhero Castings that almost happened

We’re all attached to our superheroes. Whether it’s Iron Man, Captain America, Batman or even Shaktimaan, we’re up to speed about everything happening in comic book universe. However, trouble arises when an actor is picked to play our beloved comic characters on screen. Think about the whole hoopla about Ben Affleck as Batman, in Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Crazy, right? However, there’s a couple of horrible superhero castings that almost saw the light of day. It doesn’t take much of a genius to figure out that Jack Black as Green Lantern is a disaster waiting to happen, right? Read on to find out more about bad superhero casting choices that almost happened:
Nicolas Cage – Superman
Imagine Nicolas Cage as the Man of Steel. Downright preposterous, I say. For all you DC fanboys out there, this was almost a reality. Nic was supposed to star in Superman Lives, a project which fortunately never materialized. He even took part in a costume fitting!
Tom Cruise – Iron Man
Iron Man is Tony Stark and Tony Stark is Robert Downey Jr. Without RDJ, there is no Iron Man. Maybe its just us, but think about the witty and sarcastic Stark as Tom Cruise. So weird, right? 
Leonardo DiCaprio – Spiderman
Even though DiCaprio is an Oscar nominated actor and a powerhouse of talent on screen, there’s a few parts that even he isn’t cut out for. Take Peter Parker, or Spiderman for example. It’s mentally taxing to think of Leo being a nerdy kid, who stands up to Flash Thompson. 
Bill Murray – Batman
As a Batman fan, this had me cringing in my chair. Everyone loves Bill Murray, for his deadpan humour and dark wit. But honestly, could he ever have done justice as the Dark Knight before Michael Keaton donned the suit?
Jack Black – Green Lantern
There are stupid decisions, and then there’s this. I can’t think of a single reason as to why Jack Black would make a good, or even passable Green Lantern. As much as we all hated the film, we’re glad this didn’t happen. 
So there you have it, 5 superhero casting choices that fortunately never happened.
