    I think Dalton would have been great as Tony Stark. Even more so as Mandrake.

    But my vote goes to George Lazenby. I can see him as Superman.

    Barry Nelson-
    Sean Connery-1
    David Niven-
    George Lazenby-1
    Roger Moore-

  • bondjamesbondjames You were expecting someone else?

    Craig for sure. He's got the build and he's already shown superhuman qualities (blasting through a wall and managing to live through getting his balls squelched in CR, falling from a great height in SF, surviving a building collapse and needles in SP) etc. etc.. Even Batman hasn't done all that, I don't think.

    I'm another one for Lazenby. He'd make a good Superman for sure.

    Now, why haven't I thought of that?! Dalton as The Shadow! Sheer perfection!

    Shame though, I've already cast my vote...

    Tim is the most super of them all. He is currently in talks with the producers of the upcoming remake of The Shadow thanks to this thread.

    Nelson, Connery, Niven, Moore, Brosnan-maybe you could be a supervillain or something, but you sure ain t superhero material. Subpar hero, perhaps. Good to see that no one wanted Brosnan as Batman

    New question in the same vein:

    Which Bond would you rather see as Tarzan?

    Well, Moore was approached back in the 50's.

    Really ? Is that what that infamous OP scene was about?

    That I couldn't say. I think he was approached to star in either a T.V series or a series of films. But Moore said he couldn't keep his stomach sucked in for long enough. I'll have to dig it out of Moore's biography.

    That s interesting.

    Bond connection: James Pierce played him in Tarzan and the Golden Lion in 1927, the birth year of Roger Moore.

    And Christopher Lambert of Greystoke fame was considered as Bond after Moore quit. Too thick French accent, sadly. Great actor.

    Also, you have Tarzan s New York Adventure from 1942(great film!) starring the ultimate Tarzan, Johnny Weissmuller, which in Norwegian was called Tarzan In New York.

    Quite interesting.

    Had a quick read of Moore's bio, but couldn't find anything. Any info on Moore's brush with Tarzan would be much appreciated.

    Well, if anyone is indeed looking for a good connection between Tarzan and Bond, then yes they are connected... Via Wold Newton Family... Something that was started and initially set up by Philip José Farmer in his Tarzan Alive book and its successor Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life. I think the first book is quite easy to track down in the UK and perhaps Europe. But, it isn't available in the US, as far as I know.

    They are also both orphans.

    This from the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?
  • ClarkDevlinClarkDevlin Martinis, Girls and Guns

    It's originated from Tarzan Alive and Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life by Philip Jose Farmer, which created a "relevant" crossover fiction universe that Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was inspired from. In a way, they are part of the Wold Newton Family.

    Thanks, the plot thickens.
    My pleasure. I do recommend the first book, Tarzan Alive heavily. If you get around to it, I think you'll enjoy it.

    Lazenby, the most ape-man of them all (Sorry George). I think his 'Me Tarzan, you Jane' would be very convincing....
