3. Melissa Barrera
You may have seen Melissa Barrera’s name on a ton of fan cast lists. And you’ll continue to see her until she gets a comic book movie role — she’s that legit. Barrera is a rising star in Hollywood and has already made a name for herself with her breakout role in In the Heights and her lead role in the new Scream franchise. But we think she’s ready for her next challenge: playing the role of Zatanna in the DC Universe.
Barrera has proven herself to be a versatile actress, with a range that includes both dramatic and comedic performances. She has a natural charisma that would make her the perfect fit for the role of Zatanna, who’s known for her confident and seductive demeanor.
But beyond her on-screen presence, Barrera also has the acting chops to pull off the complex character of Zatanna. As a magician, Zatanna must balance her extraordinary powers with the struggles of being a human being. Barrera has shown that she can handle complex and nuanced characters, and we think she’d be able to bring depth and authenticity to Zatanna’s character.
Melissa Barrera would be a perfect fit for the role of Zatanna, and we can’t wait to see her bring the character to life in the DC Universe.
