Who Should Play the "Forgotten" Hero?
If Aquaman is the one member of the Justice League that late night talk show hosts and sketch comics like to pick on for having "useless" powers like breathing underwater and communicating with marine life, Martian Manhunter is the one that nobody picks on...or even mentions...ever. The "forgotten" member of the Justice League, Martian Manhunter has been a member of the super-team since they first gathered together in the pages of The Brave and the Bold #28 (Feb./Mar. 1960) and is actually the most powerful of them all, possessing all of Superman's abilities, plus telepathy, invisibility, phasing and shape-shifting.
Martian Manhunter has received wider recognition in recent years thanks to appearances in various animated series, video games, and in the Smallville: Absolute Justice TV movie (played by Phil Morris), but he is still the only member of the Justice League that does not have a live-action movie in development at Warner Bros. If Martian Manhunter does appear on the big screen, chances are it will be as part of the ensemble Justice League movie, which will definitely need an actor of color — when not battling global threats, Martian Manhunter frequently operates in disguise as an African-American police detective named John Jones — to lend some diversity to its roster of superheroes. Join us in our hunt to find the right man to play the Martian Manhunter.
