Casting Shazam: Beautia

Today we will leer.. er, I mean look at the top contenders to play Beautia Sivana.




Katheryn Winnick
Why she should be cast: Well... I'm not going to state the obvious.
Why she should not get cast: While she definitely does not look it, she's 36, which might be a little too old if the actor cast for the World's Mightiest Mortal is in his 20s or early 30s.
Conclusion: If the movie was made back in 2008, she would have the role. Today, she's still a contender but not a shoo-in.



Kate Upton
Why she should be cast: Do you really need to ask?
Why she should not get cast: She only has two movie roles on her resume, where she had little dialogue and was just eye candy.
Conclusion: Due to her lack of acting skills, she may be passed over.




Brooklyn Decker
Why she should be cast: Umm... yeah.
Why she should not get cast: While she's gaining some acting experience by having roles in a few movies, is her acting up to a blockbuster superhero epic level?
Conclusion: A definite contender.



Genevieve Morton
Why she should be cast: ...can't...look...away....
Why she should not get cast: Like Upton and Decker, she's a model with aspirations to be an actress. Her resume is thin, but she's just starting out.
Conclusion: If she can prove she has talent, she could be a contender.




Nicola Peltz
Why she should be cast: You do have eyes, right? Plus, she was in a Transformers movie.
Why she should not get cast: At 19, she might be a little too young.
Conclusion: Another definite front runner.



Agnes Olech
Why she should be cast: She looks like that and is funny.
Why she should not get cast: She might be a little too off beat and quirky for the role.
Conclusion: She'll get more than a second look.



Ginny Gardner
Why she should be cast: An up and coming bombshell.
Why she should not get cast: Her resume is a little thin.
Conclusion: Keep an eye on her. She may be at the right place at the right time.



Bridgit Mendler
Why she should be cast: .......what was the question?
Why she should not get cast: She, too, may be seen as a little too young for the role. She has strong ties to Disney.
Conclusion: Yeah, I'd buy her as Beautia.




Margot Robbie
Why she should be cast: She's got a great body... of work.
Why she should not get cast: If you can think of any reasons, let me know.
Conclusion: She'll make it to the final 3 choices.
(Update: Margot has been cast as Harley Quinn, removing her from consideration for Beautia.)




Hunter Haley King
Why she should be cast: A couple reasons....
Why she should not be cast: At 5'5", she may be too short for the role.
Conclusion: .....*drool*.... 



Dianna Agron
Why she should be cast: ... hummina hummina hummina....
Why she should not get cast: That's a stupid comment.
Conclusion: She can have anything she wants.
 

Haley Bennett
Why she should be cast: She puts the Beaut in Beautia.
Why she should not get cast: Because the casting director is insane.
Conclusion: A rising star who should be given serious consideration.


Carla Sonre
Why she should be cast: Of all the choices listed, she very well may be the perfect match.
Why she should not get cast: She is a model rather than an actress,  I don't know if she speaks English.
Conclusion: If she can show she has interest and talent for acting, and she can speak English fluently, we could have our Beautia.
