FanCast: The Ultimate Superhero Movie

Superhero films are a dime a dozen. In fact, Superhero stories are in such high demand, We now have three X-Men TV shows in the works.

But that wasn’t always the case.

There was a time when high profile directors couldn’t get their movies off the ground.

  • J.J Abrams has a failed Superman film
  • Tim Burton has a failed Superman film
  • George Miller had a failed Justice League movie
  • James Cameron has a failed Spider-Man movie
  • Nicolas Winding Refn tried to do Wonder Woman
  • So did Joss Whedon
  • Darren Aronofsky Tried to do Batman
  • The Wachowski’s Had Batman and Plastic Man scripts
  • Tom Cruise was attached to Iron Man for almost a decade

And on and on. Which lead me to the question: “Which version would you have wanted to see or better yet, Which hypothetical version would you make?”

Any director, Any decade, Any actors.

I would go with X-Men in the 80’s Directed By John Carpenter.

My Cast:


Wolverine–Clint Eastwood


Cyclops–Kurt Russell


Jean Grey–Karen Allen


Colossus–Arnold Shwarzenegger


Captain America–Clint Walker


Magneto–Rod Steiger


Silver Samurai–Toshiro Mifune


Bullseye–Lee Marvin


Mystique–David Bowie


I would make Wolverine and Captain America brothers, Make Bullseye a mutant and remove Charles Xavier completely or have him be dead at the beginning. Mix it up and go crazy.

So, What is your dream team? Maybe a 90’s Justice league with Brad Pitt? Or a 80’s Avengers with Chuck Norris?
