Casting is truly an art form. Each and every cast member from starring, to supporting, to day-player, affects the entire tone of the film. What would Bruce Wayne be without Christian Bale, who was up against a number of actors on this list for the role? Casting is everything, and the actors on this list couldn't make the cut for the role of any number of DC heroes and villains.
These are all of the shadows of that ideal, the people who were ALMOST legends, who almost had action figures and multi-picture deals and10-year contracts. These are the people who, for one reason or another, didn't end up playing these great characters of the comic book world.Which actors almost became DC's film heroes and villains? Their films went on to be made, not ending up on the list of comic book movies we never saw, but the actors and actresses listed here weren't part of the fun. Which of these stars do you wish you had seen in DC hero and villain roles? Cast your votes below!
