Which Superhero Should Leonardo DiCaprio Play?

Which Superhero Should Leonardo DiCaprio Play?

It seems that Leonardo DiCaprio is more interested in portraying famous people in biopics, than any other role. That's bad news for comic book legend Stan Lee, who wants to see the actor in a comic book movie.



"I want Leo. Leo DiCaprio should be a superhero," Lee told HollywoodLife at Activision's E3's concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. "Leo NEEDS to be a superhero." There are plenty opportunities for DiCaprio to play a superhero. Studios are still searching for Aquaman, Dr. Strange, Superman, Ant-Man, and The Flash. Unfortunately, I cannot imagine the actor in any of those roles.

Question: What superhero would DiCaprio be perfect to play?

DiCaprio would have to play someone noble and majestic. Someone like Adam Strange, or a "Blackhawks" movie from DC Comics.

Now that, I'd pay to see.

He could get away with playing Hawkeye.

He could be to Superman what Daniel Craig was to James Bond. People would be too focused on his appearance, but I think he could deliver a great performance.

Would of been badass if he was The Green Lantern but I think he is above stuff like that.

Ideally I would love to see him play a villian. Just an all around sinister POS. Maybe the Riddler perhaps?

Now there's a good idea.

He was originally going to play Spiderman back when James Cameron was developing the film.

I don't think he should ever play a comic book super hero. For starters he just doesn't have the body type for it. Also he's one of the most recognized actors out there today, and also one of the most critically acclaimed actors out there. It would just be weird.

Fact is Leo is probably the best actor working today and can just do so much better than second rate comic book characters.

If he's really as big an Aquaman fan as he says he is, then he should have the role. He'd make a great Arthur Curry, King of Atlantis.

None...I could never buy Leo as a superhero like I do his other roles.

It would be pretty sweet to see Leo as Deadpool (even though there is a better chance of Hell freezing over). Since Reynolds is set as the Green Lantern, someone else should get the role for Deadpool.

I doubt Leo would ever play a comic book character though. The best chance of him doing that would be if it involved Nolan.

I think Leo would play a great Spiderman. Not the Spiderboy crap we will see next or the SpiderEmo we got from Tobey, but Spider fucking MAN.

Whatever superhero he'd choose, I would hope he'd gravitate toward DC instead of Marvel. I don't have high hopes for that company at the moment.

If Dicaprio was going to do a Marvel movie...I think Dr. Strange is perfect.



If it was D.C...a little tougher. I would have said Green Lantern, but thats already being done.



But Dr. Strange...that would really work. Plus there is not a lot of baggage with Strange. (His comics have never been that succesful, so you dont have to tell convoluted stories that have already been told ten times in the comics) You can start from scratch with a real intresting villain and a lot of psychological plots.

That's a bloody good call.

Yeah...

I just don't think he would do a superhero movie unless its a darker, more serious role like Nolan's Batmans. It just doesn't seem likely to me.
