5 Celebrities Who Turned Down DC Roles, For Better Or Worse

Published

on

Some of DC’s biggest movies were almost vastly different. A different actor in a key role can sometimes make or break a film. We’ve come across some actors who declined huge DC roles, leaving us to wonder what could’ve been. Here are five celebrities who turned down DC roles.

Tom Hardy As Rick Flag

Several years after Tom Hardy played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, the acclaimed actor was set for his second DC role as Colonel Rick Flag in Suicide Squad. While at first there was a rumor that Hardy turned it down due to the script, the real reason came out that he couldn’t do the film due to a scheduling conflict. Having seen the finished project of Suicide Squad, we wouldn’t blame him if the rumor were true.

Adam Driver As Lex Luthor

Adam Driver was approached to play Lex Luthor in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. As it sometimes happens, Driver was busy with another project, so the role went to Jesse Eisenberg. After Eisenberg’s less-than-beloved portrayal of Luthor in the movie, we’re disappointed that we didn’t get to see what Driver would’ve done with the character.

Anthony Hopkins As Alfred Pennyworth

Leading up to Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan asked Anthony Hopkins to join the project as Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth. Hopkins chose not to, and it’s yet to be revealed why didn’t do it. We can’t complain though–Michael Caine’s Alfred was a highlight of the Dark Knight trilogy.

Leonardo DiCaprio As Robin

Joel Schumacher approached a young Leonardo DiCaprio prior Batman Forever. Schumacher envisioned him as the boy-wonder, Robin–but DiCaprio wasn’t seeing it. The young actor had one meeting with Schumacher and then never looked back. Considering how much hate Batman Forever gets, DiCaprio certainly made the right decision.

Matt Damon As Two-Face

The Dark Knight is arguably the most beloved superhero flick of all-time–but it was almost much different. As his first pick for the role of Two-Face, Nolan approached Matt Damon. Damon couldn’t do it due to a scheduling conflict, so Nolan went to Aaron Eckhart, whom fans now think of when they think of Two-Face.

It’s hard enough for one person to break into the field, and to become famous enough to be known in every household in America – and many around the world – is quite a different thing.

There are many celebrities that have other famous sisters that you probably didn’t know about, and other stars of whom you knew, but didn’t know were actually related. Read on to discover the sister stars you never knew were sisters.
