10 Oscar winners who would make good superheroes or supervillains
Two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis (he won Best Actor for both 1989's "My Left Foot" and 2007's "There Will Be Blood") may be getting up in years at age 55, but he's still got the mojo it takes to play one damn fine supervillain. The uber-versatile actor can play evil better than anyone (as evidenced by his riveting method performances in "There Will Be Blood" and Martin Scorsese's "Gangs of New York"), and after playing the heroic President Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's new biopic, we're guessing he may be looking to take a dark turn for his next project. If an actor of Day-Lewis's talent and stature ever were to take on a big-budget superhero flick, it seems only appropriate that it be the biggest and most ambitious of the upcoming crop - namely, DC's "Justice League." But which villain is the right fit? Intriguing options include Prometheus, Brainiac and, yes, "big bad" baddie Darkseid. Of course, there's no doubt Day-Lewis would knock it out of the park no matter which antagonist he played.
