Icon (Scott Hunter): Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, The Tudors)
comments: He would be a good...wait a minute, he's already Superman! But, Henry, you will not have to worry about competing with the Batman here! (Thanks Ded, I had cast Cavill as Scott after the first time I saw him in The Tudors back in '07 or '08...damn you Snyder!
Jenny Hunter (Scott's kid sister):
Director Alexander Anderson
Alison Sparks (Ms Sparks)
Lyger (Kyle Porter):
Whisper (Cassie Welch)
Echo (Ashley "Ash" Martinez)
Haruki “Harry” Takahashi
Samantha "Sam" Myers
Jack Porter (Kyle's Dad)
Flux (Chrissy Jones)
Casting by @Dedonus
Radiance (Alexa Winstone): Ashley Greene (Twilight)
Slipstream (Amanda Allen-James)
Racheli Lorna Desdemona: Nora Zehetner (Heroes)
comments: With her relatively short performance in Heroes, I would say that Nora could play Rach.
Justine Shepherd: Shailene Woodley
comments: While her eye color does not match the picture that Tearstone provided in his character sheet, but I think her face does patch that image (minus the eye color).
War-Pulse: Sebastian Stan (Captain America movies)
comments: Compare the below image with War-Pulse's appearance in his character sheet and tell me how would this not be the perfect fit?
Raptor (Zac Wilson): Dacre Montgomery
comments: While I have not seen the most recent Power Rangers movie yet, I'm assuming that the Red Ranger could be a good fit for this role.
Robert Wilson (Zac's Father): Sam Elliot, 10-20 years ago (Prancer, Hulk)
comments: Weird that I cannot pick an actor for Zac, but I can for his dad...
Wasp (Kelly Brown): Milana Vayntrub (AT&T Commercials)
comments: I don't know if she could act in an action movie, but in my mind, she looks the part of Kelly. Also, they would have to omit the part about Kelly growing over six feet tall, but that can be easily over looked. :D Finally, if Emma Stone can play a high schooler, I'm sure Milana can pass for a college sophomore.
Bast (Sammy Kadowsky): Hayley McFarland (Criminal Minds)
comments: This is what happens when you look at the Criminal Minds wikipedia page for each of their seasons. She kind of looks young in this picture, but I assure you that she is 24 (born in 1991). Funny how the story arc that gave Sammy her "powers" was inspired by Criminal Minds, too. :D
Arachne (Aubrey Adkins): AJ Michalka (Goldbergs/Super 8) / Elle Fanning (Maleficent/Super 8) / Karen Gillan (Doctor Who/Guardians of the Galaxy/Jumanji)
comments: Arachne would be, well, interesting to put on the silver screen since she is not entirely a humanoid, unlike most of the characters in this roleplay. Therefore (unless this "movie" is taking place in the IC, where they could hire Arachne to do the stunts) Arachne would probably have to be done via CGI, much like the Hulk in the Avengers. They would probably CGI the action scenes but use green-screen magic to get some close-ups. They could also use the techniques Marvel Studios did to make pre-transformation Captain America to make sure the actress does not fall victim of a common trope for superheroines.
Karen Gillan is the oldest (29), the tallest, the only non-American (Scottish), and only one of my three choices who is not naturally blonde. However, none of these are deal-breakers. Hair color can be changed (cf. Emma Stone in the Amazing Spider-Man movies), actors play younger roles all the time (cf. Emma Stone again), movie magic can fix any height issues (coughTomCruisecough), and accents can be faked. When casting an actress for the role of Arachne, one must consider that there are two aspects to this character: the superhero and civilian. I believe Karen could nail the superhero part of the role, as her film resume shows.
AJ Michalka is the second oldest (26). In the same way that Karen would excel at the superhero portion of this role, AJ would do the same for the civilian part. Aubrey is a pretty similar to the character she played on the Goldbergs. I have no idea whether she could do the superhero part of the role (the closest she has come to this was voice acting for Steven Universe).
Elle Fanning is the youngest of the bunch (19). AJ Michalka and her so happened to have played sisters in Super 8. Her age is both a positive and a negative. She is the closest to Arachne's age in IC (21/2) and by the time a hypothetical movie is produced, she would be the right age. Plus, she would be young enough to do multiple movies (cf. Tom Holland for MCU Spider-Man). The only negative deals with Arachne's "assets." While I would admit that "enhancing" any of these actresses would be a little weird, it feels worse doing it to a 19 year old.

Thunderbolt - Shia Labeouf
Not because he's that great of an actor, but because he's hilarious and has a surprising range when he's performing. That, he has a ton of experience dealing with CGI, which would be vital for any CAH film.
Boom - Kate Beckinsale
She's a great actor who knows how to do action very well. Her role in the Underworld movies would serve her well when it comes to playing a speedster.
Polemos - Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
He was born for the role. I had Polemos pegged for someone else, but after discovering Adewale? I'd never go back.
