Here's the challenge: try to think of the perfect casting of any superhero - but only FACIALLY. You can choose any celebrity from any era.

I'll go first with a couple:

Romita era Peter Parker / Spider-Man  - CHARLIE SHEEN (as in Wall Street)

Namor, the Sub-Mariner - KEANU REEVES (as in Speed)

While I'd probably watch her in just about anything, I think Kelsey Asbille could replace Maggie Q as Talisman.

Probably a very obvious one but Robert Redford (1970s) as Captain America

How about Charles Bronson from the early 1960's as Wolverine?

Kelsey Asbille

Pretty. But her face is too wide for Talisman.

Really, I thought perhaps Simon Williams aka Wonder Man. Again from the early 1960's.

Such a missed opportunity for a young Jon Hamm. The man has a strong voice and chin that was just made for a superhero movie. He even has Byrne eyes!


He could have easily worked as Superman 20 years ago - or as Batman a few years later. A few years after that, he would have made a fine Two-Face. I like JB's suggestion that a more modern-day Hamm would be a good fit for The Spirit.
