Now that Justice League is just a few measly weeks away, the press-junkets are about to enter full-swing for the cast of the movie. Before they take on the forces of Apokolips, Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) must promote their superhero team-up. Appearing in a group interview, the cast was asked which member of the Justice League they'd play aside from their own. Check out the clip below to see who's the most popular hero among the cast.
Provided with finger pointers, the cast of Justice League was asked by an interviewer (in a video posted to Twitter by user Nicolle | all in) to point to the character they'd most like to play which wasn't their own. The vote went like this: Henry Cavill, Ray Fisher, and Gal Gadot all picked The Flash, while Ben Affleck and Ezra Miller chose Wonder Woman. Jason Momoa rounded out the votes by deciding Batman. Most of the cast would want to play The Flash, while Wonder Woman brings up the rear with two votes.
Asked why The Flash was the No. 1 choice, Ray Fisher answered, "The Speed Force, man. Who would not want to use the Speed Force?" It's a fun answer but maybe the majority affinity for The Flash hints that he's going to be the breakout character of the movie. The Flash has been positioned as the light-hearted and comic relief character by the various trailers for Justice League, so it makes sense that everyone wants to play the most fun character.
While the vote was split amongst those three characters, Cyborg, Superman, and Aquaman didn't get any votes. None of those actors seemed to mind much, though, Jason Momoa did feign being upset when he said, "Obviously, no one wants to talk to fish." Well, Gal Gadot does, but she "only had one finger!" Have to admit, it's pretty nice to see the cast having a little fun with each other.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder (with some assistance from Joss Whedon). The film is the first major team-up of the classic DC comics squad, a group of metahumans led by Batman to stop an invasion from Steppenwolf and the forces of Apokolips. The film is said to have a lighter tone some of the previous entries in the DCEU, and it will hopefully spark a new franchise of DC superhero movies.
