We already re-casted Marvel’s “The Avengers” with athletes and it turned out to be awesome, so we decided to switch over to DC Comics and tackle the Justice League. Ready to find out who will be Batman, Superman and everyone else in the League? Let’s get started.
Obviously, we needed an athlete who can defy gravity and all other other things that hold mortal humans down. Since the receiver known as Megatron can basically fly and has superhuman strength, let’s just put a cape on Calvin Johnson so guys like Cam Newton and Dwight Howard can stop pretending.
For the Dark Knight, we needed an athlete who makes a ton of money off the field and really enjoys the company of multiple lovely ladies. Derek Jeter fits the bill as he leads a heroic life as a player and his private life is somewhat mysterious besides the well-known fact he’s popular with the ladies. Thus, the Captain is our pick for Batman.
Although a lot of the comic book audience only knows Wonder Woman because of her looks, her actual character was known for defeating evil with love. WNBA star Tamika Catchings is the ultimate class act on and off the court and her countless acts of kindness through charity and other helpful organizations makes her perfect to play Wonder Woman.
Although the Green Lantern’s character has been butchered in the comics over the years, the athlete to best play Hal Jordan, the true Green Lantern, is Roger Federer. There’s no other athlete who plays with the grace and humble fearlessness of the Swiss tennis legend, and those are the characteristics needed for one to possess a lantern.
Another character whose identity has been tarnished (and somewhat unknown) over the years is Aquaman. His character went through some dark times as a “fallen hero” and king of Atlantis who couldn’t quite get everything right. In the same way, Alex Ovechkin is really good at what he does on the ice, but just can’t quite put it all together. Ice is frozen water, so that part is close enough, especially since all the eligible swimmers are morons.
Ok, this one doesn’t really need an explanation. The Flash is an incredibly fast superhero who uses his super speed to fight evil. Usain Bolt is the world’s fastest man and he uses his super speed to set world and Olympic records on a regular basis.
