I often times struggle with casting choices, but other times, they're a cinch. If I were casting a Pre-Crisis Huntress movie, there are tons of actresses with the looks of Helena Wayne to decide between. However, the Huntress most readers know came out of the '80s with a demanding physicality and more attitude than most actresses can carry. Thinking of performers in the correct age range with appropriate marquee value who could play Helena Bertinelli, I pretty much just had to choose between Eliza Dushku and Michele Rodriguez. If I felt like I had wiggle room with ethnicity, I may very well have gone with the former. However, Dushku has the martial arts and crossbow experience of a former vampire slayer/spy with her own fan base, plus serious genre credibility, so why deny the obvious?
