HipZOMJoint Role Call #36 Creating The New Gods

A New Gods film is coming! Wait a New Gods film is coming? Yes, director Ava DeVernay of such films as Selma and the recent A Wrinkle In Time has been tapped to direct the upcoming feature that if done correctly could be Warner Bros Star Wars.

With New Gods is now all the rage at Warner Bros. As the confused studio continues to pine for z grade obscure characters no one has heard of over their premiere characters like Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Supergirl, Green Arrow, Teen Titans….geez you get the idea…anyways here’s the role call for the New Gods:


Mads Mikkelsen as Darkseid

Mikkelsen is no stranger to genre movies and tv shows having starred in Hannibal as well as portraying the villain in Doctor Strange. He could bring the appropriate gravitas to the role of the ruler of Apokolips.


Charlie Hunnam as Orion

As the forsaken son of Darkseid, why not cast Sons of Anarchy star, Charlie Hunnam. He could bring the right kind of intensity needed for the role.

GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE at Game of Thrones Season 3 Premiere

Gwendoline Christie as Big Barda

Not only is Christie the right size for the New Gods warrior, she also has experience playing a sword-wielding heroine on Game Of Thrones.


Ian Hanmore as Desaad

The right-hand man to Darkseid needs to be creepy and nightmarish. How about Hanmore who played the evil warlock from Game Of Thrones?


Oprah Winrey as Granny Goodness

Oprah recently worked with Ava DuVernay on A Wrinkle In Time, this would be an ideal re-team for the two and who doesn’t want to see an evil Oprah training a generation of violent kills on Apokolips?


Daniel Dae Kim as Metron

The teleporting New God needs to be played by someone who is intellectual but can also be intimidating, look no further than LOST’s Kim.


Sam Neill as Highfather

Just as you need someone with the right gravitas to play Darkseid, you need to the same for someone to play Highfather. As ruler of New Genesis, he needs to able to hold his own against Apokolips. Look no further than Jurassic Park’s Sam Neill.


Walton Goggins as Kalibak

Goggins is an excellent character who excels in every diverse role he is in. He would be great as the forgotten son of New Genesis.


Sam Rockwell as Mister Miracle

To play the wisecracking escape artist why not that wisecracking actor Sam Rockwell?


The Furies:

Willa Holland (Arrow) as Mad Harriet

Naya Rivera (Glee) as Lashina

Gabourey Sidibe (American Horror Story) as Stompa
