There are good fan petitions, and then there are insane fan petitions. Trying to save a canceled TV show, GOOD. Trying to get a director fired because you don’t like his or her work, INSANE. With fandom, sometimes you get an insanely good idea, and yesterday was one of those days.
DC Extended Universe fans started a petition to urge Warner Bros. to cast Shia LaBeouf as Jason Todd, also known as the Red Hood. If you let it sink in for a moment, this is a brilliant idea. LaBeouf is as polarizing as Jason Todd, and fans have a solid love-hate relationship with the Red Hood. Furthermore, Jason Todd and LaBeouf are both crazy!
For those who don’t understand why LaBeouf gets so much hate, ‘Time’ has a great article from 2014: A Brief History of Shia LaBeouf Copying the Work of Others
Here are the reasons from the petition why LaBeouf should be cast at the Red Hood (p.s. We did fix all the spelling errors in the petition on our copy.)
Shia LaBeouf is willing to go the distance to be the best that his character can be in recent films.
It’s 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.
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 have 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.
At the time this article was published, 490 people have signed the petition.
