These are the rules of Dreamcasting 2009, they may not be broken, altered or changed in any way shape or form. Seriously:
1) The winner of the last round becomes the moderator of the next round, and is free to choose any property to be cast, whether it is based from comics, videogames, books, cartoons or real world figures.
2) When the moderator chooses a property, he or she may specify a medium (TV, film, cartoon) and a cast of at least 4 characters and a maximum of 9. Should he or she fail to specify a medium, then it is open game what medium participants want to play with.
3) Actors may not reprise their parts at all. Those who have played a character on film or TV may not play the character on voice and vice versa. Simply put, Kevin Conroy cannot put on a Batsuit and Christian Bale is not allowed to voices in your fantasy Batman CG adventure.
4) If you would like to cast an additional character, you must swap one out for another. However, the moderator has the option of leaving blank spots deliberately, with a maximum of 9. For example, he or she may declare, "Fantastic Four, and at least two bad guys and a Fantastic Friend (i.e. She-Hulk, Power Man)
5) Each round lasts ten days from the point the moderator posts it, and voting lasts for at least a day and any time past that needed to secure a victory.
6) And a final reminder: This is Dreamcasting, not DreamMovie. There are no story pitches. You can describe the character, talk about the kind of arc perhaps he goes through or what nuance he brings to the character or what kind of incarnation he's playing, but you can't write a freaking trilogy. No exceptions. Emphasize casting decisions and why you chose an actor.
"Face it, Batman's never comin' back. Hadda happen eventually."
"Pyg is here to make everything perfect."
"If you're not up to it, stand aside, Dick Grayson."
"Everyone's a critic..."
Batman and Robin
Might seem an odd choice, especially given that there's only been two issues; I just fell in love with the idea of a dreamcast/dreammovie based on this, given that the characters have all had their biggest upheaval in years. Just look at it as a loose adaptation, with the basic premise intact: Dick Grayson takes over as Batman, following Bruce's death, while the eccentric Damian takes over as Robin.
