An Alternate Cast

Now that we’ve seen the current cast for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s kind of hard picturing different people wear these legendary garbs.  However, like all large-scale movies, the studio had many actors in mind when this film was still a concept.  Some of these suggestions will make people go, “Huh?”, while others will make people go, “Yeah, I can totally see him in this role!”
