Aquaman and Mera Casting Call

A few years ago, the Shrine ran a contest to see who all of you out there would cast as the characters in an Aquaman movie. Some really good suggestions were made, and fun was had by all.

Well, now that it's been confirmed that WB is making a Justice League movie (and there's other big casting news in the air), I felt like it was time to revisit this topic! So let's pretend for the moment that Aquaman and Mera are scheduled to appear in whatever Justice League movie Warners has planned for 2018. Who would you cast as the King and Queen of the Seven Seas? The phone lines are open!

I will still go with Amy Adams as Mera, although Superman might get mad at me lol!

I am not sure who should be Aquaman, maybe Rick (He has the great armor for it). But I know it better not be matt damon, or I will refuse to watch it.

You know my casting for Black Manta it stands (even more so after his epic showing in pacific rim.

Maybe Liam Hemsworth as Aquaman. I mean older bro Chris is Thor. Would need to lighten the hair. And then maybe we can forget about the whole Miley Cyrus thing.

I think Chris Pine could pull off a good Aquaman. He can be a bit broody and yet still have a good sense of humor when needed.

As for Mera, that could be tricky. I think Amy Adams would be a great choice, if they can pull her away from role as Lois Lane.

For Arthur I'd like someone less pretty boy and more rugged. And someone a bit older I want to see an Aquaman in his 40s.

No idea for Mera. The only red head I can think of is Christina Hendricks. So her I guess. She's got the maturity and gravitas to pull it off, and she's gorgeous (and I'm shallow).

I think Liam Hemsworth would make people stand up and take notice. Good casting choice there James.

I still think Josh Holloway would be perfect as Aquaman. For Mera, maybe Emily Blunt with her hair dyed Red?

I agree w/ Josh Holloway I was never in full agreement w/ anyone else in the Aquaman role. Mera I like to see Amanda Righetti.

Kellan Lutz would be perfect for Aquaman, Hes played Hercules, Tarzan and is a a 6'1" tank like Arthur.

I'd like to see Liam McIntyre from "Spartacus: War of the Damned" as Arthur. He's got the chops and the physicality.

For Mera, Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) is a fantastic actress and really looks the part.

Even though they are completely different characters--and should be depicted so on screen--I would cast Alexander Skarsgard as both Aquaman and Namor. Rachel Nichols for Mera and Columbus Short for Black Manta.

I have them and other characters fan-casted here:

Top choice for Aquaman would be Nicholaj Coster-Waldau.

I think Brandon Jones would be a great choice for Aquaman- a young Aquaman but Aquaman nonetheless.

Idris Alba as Black Manta is an excellent choice.

Alicia Witt might make a good Mera (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001860/)

In a perfect world I would cast Ryan Gosling as Aquaman and Olivia Wilde as Mera with Denzel Washington as Black Manta.
