My Batkids FanCasting
Pretty well aware it won’t be to everyone’s liking but here are the actors I would cast.
- Finn Wittrock as Dick Grayson/Nightwing
Don’t get me wrong. I really want a Romani actor to play Dick. But since I have the feeling that WB will want a white actor, then I would suggest Finn Wittrock. He has the looks, the charm and proved himself to be a great actor in American Horror Story.
- Matthew Daddario as Jason Todd/ Red Hood
A popular thought but let’s face it Matthew is the perfect cinnamon roll/bad boy combo to play our Jaybird
- Aneurin Barnard as Tim Drake/ Red Robin
He is a bit old compared to Timbo, but when I saw him in Dunkirk my head immediately screamed “Tim Drake!!”
- Anthony Keyvan as Damian Wayne/ Robin
I mean, look at that face ! He even has the hair!!
- Karen Gillan as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl
The resemblance is uncanny and Karen showed she could be quite a badass in Guardians of the Galaxy.
- Ava Philippe as Stephanie Brown/Spoiler
Sorry but I can’t root for a Chloe Grace Moretz or a Elle Fanning. We see those two everywhere and I feel like Stephanie should be portrayed by someone unknown. Ava Philippe has never been in any movie so far but if she’s like her mom then I think she’ll be an awesome actress for the part.
- Jin Ji Hee as Cassandra Cain/ Orphan
I’m not really convinced by my own choice to be honest. Cassandra Cain is such a complex character that I think it’ll be difficult to find a Chinese actress that can be as badass and yet as vulnerable as Cass. So I’ll go for Jin Ji Hee for aesthetic reason.
