The petition started up through Change.org already has 768 supporters of the 1,000 goal, and here are the following points the folks are making for why LaBeouf could play a great Red Hood:
Shia LaBeouf is willing to go the distance to be the best that his character can be in recent films...
Its an opportunity for him to show the world what an amazing actor he can truly be if you just give him a chance to be this character. Plus help him get from one of the most looked down upon actors in Hollywood to one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood because of this role
Ben Affleck was hated by so many people because he was cast as batman and now he is loved by many after they say what an amazing performance Ben Affleck could do as batman
Shia LaBeouf is truly one of the most talented actors in Hollywood if you seen his recent films
If you know the character Jason Todd aka Red Hood And if you know Shia LaBeouf the then u can see how similar they are in and how perfect this casting choice is for Shia LaBeouf
What do you guys think, could the notoriously volatile actor step up and pick up the role; or is Red Hood better suited for someone like Jensen Ackles (already voiced Red Hood in the animated series)?
I think we just gotta take it back to this for a quick sec--
If you're not down with that potential casting, who do you think could play a good Red Hood (Jason Todd)?
The post-credit scene of X-Men Apocalypse teased the introduction of a one Nathaniel Essex, who is better known as Mister Sinister. Mister Sinister was one of the most powerful villains in the X-Men comics. He was driven by an obsessive desire to understand the genetics of mutants, and he would regularly experiment on them as test subjects until he all but achieved immortality for himself.
Many out there are hopeful right now that we'll be looking at Richard E. Grant as Mister Sinister, after news broke a while ago about Grant being cast as a 'mad scientist.'
Shoutout to the folks at @Bosslogic for the solid work on this! Now, just a matter of getting Kit himself to take a look at this...maybe read some of the comics, who knows where things could go from there.
