* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', Harry, and by extension Thor's [[HumanShifting James Potter form]], is fancast as [[{{Series/Smallville}} Tom Welling]]. The CastingGag inherent in this (Clark Kent also exists in this world, as a contemporary of Harry's), is noted indirectly in the narrative and directly in the Author's Notes. Other characters are also cast:

* While Creator/MelissaBenoist eventually owned the role of the titular ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'', her runner-up Creator/ClaireHolt was the fan-favorite.

While Creator/MelissaBenoist eventually owned the role of the titular ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'', protagonist, her runner-up runners-up Creator/ClaireHolt was and Gemma Atkinson were the fan-favorite. Likewise, the fan-favorites.
** The
fan-favorite to play her cousin Franchise/{{Superman}} was were either Tom Welling in a [[AlternateSelf sort-of]] RoleReprisal from ''Series/{{Smallville}}''.''Series/{{Smallville}}'' or Creator/MattBomer (who was the original choice for the ''Film/DCExtendedUniverse'' to play the character and the voice of the character himself in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanUnbound'').
** Benoist said in an interview that she wanted co-star and on-screen adoptive sister Creator/ChylerLeigh to play their version of ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}. Interestingly, Lee's character has most of ''ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}''[='=]s defining characterizations such as being a redhead with a bob cut, the show's resident BadassNormal, and eventually even hooking up with the character's canonical LoveInterest, Maggie Sawyer.



** Before the third film, Ralph Fiennes was a popular fan casting choice for Lupin. Ironically, Ralph Fiennes went on to play Lord Voldemort, which is about as far away from mild-mannered Professor Lupin as you can get. There are still plenty fans who think Ralph Fiennes would have been a better Lupin than David Thewlis.

* In-universe example: At one point in ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'', the characters sit around while being transported via cargo plane talking about who would play them in the movie of their lives. Naturally, ComicBook/NickFury says Creator/SamuelLJackson (on whom Ultimate Nick Fury was based).

Things get awkward (and then very much worse) when Hank Pym starts suggesting Creator/SteveBuscemi should play Bruce Banner in the most unintentionally insulting way possible.
