Alan Ritchson


  1. Justin Hartley, Aquaman, TV, 2006. For the Smallville creators, Al Gough and Miles Millar, the idea of an Aquaman series stemmed from the episode #92, Aqua, starring Ritchson as Arthur “AC” Curry, aka, Aquaman, trying to stop Lex Luthor’s undersea weaponry. As it won the highest ratings of the fifth season and he made three later Aqua-apperances and voiced him in the DVD toon, Justice League: The New Frontier, the handsome, blond North Dakotan felt he had the any series in the bag. Not so. The Smallvillers didn’t want the spin-off to be classed as… a spin-off! Will Toal was hired – and dropped, as well. Hartley, aka Green Arrow in Smallville, took over. Gough and Millar’s feeling that they had another 100-plus episode winner came to nothing but the tele-movie… which I guess, they didn’t want classed as a pilot, either!
  2. Zachary Levi, Shazam!, 2018. Alan Ritchson and Derek Theler made their interest known and were dutifully ignored as wrestling superstars John Cena and Dwayne Johnson, plus Jake McDorman, Joshua Sasse and Parker Young offered their services for the other Captain Marvel.  Also Alan Ritchson, from North Dakota  and 38 credits in 12 years,  including  two other comicstrip heroes, Aquaman and Hawk of the Titans.
