I would like to see Leonardo DiCaprio to take on strong roles with causes he believes in, like Climate Change. Not unlike Kevin Costner in “WaterWorld”. Bruce Dern also chooses roles to promote causes, like “Silent Running” .

As an aside, Adam West was in the “Swamp Thing” series, most likely more for a paycheck than saving the environment, at that point in his career. His “swamp Thing” character was eclipsed by his Batman persona.
Leonardo DiCaprio is a wonderfully capable actor (yes, I am a fan) and will excel in almost any role he chooses, or even produces/directs.
While I am looking forward to his next role, my crystal ball is not good at casting actor’s future direction.
