FANCAST: Spider-Man's Rogues Gallery

This is not casting suggestions for the sequel to the recent Amazing Spider-Man film, but rather, my personal choices for these parts as they would be in my ideal world.

Please Read: These are not casting suggestions for the Amazing Spider-Man sequel. These are my personal choices, but not for an existing franchise. These are the actors I feel most fit the roles, although I know the likelihood of them appearing in these roles is low. So please set aside any preconceived thoughts about where the reboot is headed in future installments, and enjoy the casting.

Joe Anderson as Maxwell Dillon/Electro

Joe Anderson has always been my pick for Electro. A very underrated actor, I believe he could bring this crazed character to life.

Marton Csokas as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin

I was looking for an entirely new pick for Osborn, and I came across Csokas. He is perfect for the cold business man that is Norman Osborn, and I have faith he would do wonders with the character's alter ego, the Green Goblin.

Thomas Kretschmann as Sergei Kravinoff/Kraven the Hunter

Kretschmann fits this role perfectly, I'm surprised I have not seen him suggested before. Although his nationality is German, I'm sure he could pull of the Russian accent required for the role.

Guy Pearce as Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard

Pearce is one of my favorite actors, and he would embody the role of Dr. Connors, as well as do the villainous Lizard justice.

Michael C. Hall as Dr. Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus

An outstanding actor, I have no doubt Hall would give a truly memorable performance as one of Spidey's most classic foes.

Derek Mears as Alex O'Hirn/Rhino

The Rhino character is not very demanding in the acting department, but very demanding physically. Mears is one of the best creature performers today, and would definitely bring Rhino to life on the screen.

Jon Bernthal as Flint Marko/Sandman

Sandman is one of my favorite villians, and Bernthal's acting chops where on full display these past two seasons of The Walking Dead. There is no one I'd rather see bring Sandman to life.

Liam Hemsworth as Eddie Brock/Venom

I realize this is not an original choice, but it is a good one. Hemsworth has the size, look, and youth for Venom, and I can tell he'd do well with the role if ever he got the chance.

William Fichtner as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture

Fichtner is a very accomplished actor who is excellent at his craft. This coupled with his unique look, would bring the Vulture to life in a way I don't think any other actor could.

That's all folks! I hope you enjoyed. Please share your thoughts and criticisms in the usual place. Have a wonderful day!

Nice cast, dude, and very original!! Michael C. Hall for Doc Ock is genius (and its better than casting him as Daredevil for the millionth time). Again, awesome cast and can you check out my Dark Avengers cast?

This is awesome, I only disagree with doctor octopus but other than that it's pretty damn good

Nice man! You got some very original picks here! Awesome fancast!
scmittydude - 7/17/2012, 4:25 PM

Joe Anderson is Kurt Cobain 2.0

Great cast btw!

Great work! Electro, Lizard, Venom, and Sandman picks are all perfect! Good to see someone besides Butler suggested for Kraven!
bigshow2312 - 7/17/2012, 6:50 PM
I tip my hat to that

MrCameron - 7/17/2012, 7:29 PM
- Ehh, not really feeling your Norman Osborne pick. I'd perfer someone better known.
- Although I have my own prefernce for the role, Kretshmann is a great Kraven pick (and A+ for not using Gerard Butler.
- OH MY FREAKING GOD! YOU HAVE MY SANDMAN PICK! It's like you stole it from my mind Inception-style while I was sleeping LOL.
- William Fichtner is actually my pick for Norman Osborne, but he'd excell at Vulture as well.

Any cast with Joe Anderson gets my vote! He would kill as electro!

Your Osborne pick is very interesting and I'd actually like to see where he went with the role

Not crazy about a german dude playing a russian dude. Plus Kretschmann is only like 5'9" and Kraven needs to be a pretty big guy to mess with spiderman hell your osbourne pick actually might be a pretty good Kraven, he's 6'3" and has done a russian accent before

Guy Pearce could pull off any role and totally fits the physical description of Connors

Bernthal is a great actor and his head seems square enough to pull off Sandman

Fichtner is totally not how I pictured Vulture but I think he could be pretty good at being the winged villain

Jolly good show! very good casting!

this is BADASS!

This is so original it's actually quite SHOCKING,
for this site!

You kick it right off with JOE ANDERSON for
ELEKTRO and it just gets even better!

Now this is casting actors for their sheer
acting talent!

Ya know, MICHAEL HALL is not what I usually
think of as DR. OCTACIUS but DAMN, he just
might pull it off!

MICHAEL C. HALL is more suited for a villain,
at least to me he is!

The only one who is iffy to me is FITCHNER but
he might just pull-off a VULTURE performance,
too! Uh, his nose just doesn't seem long and
crooked enough to me but they could always
enhance with prosthetics!

Man, I tell ya, if I was an actor I sure
wouldn't want to have to follow ALFRED MOLINA
as DOC OCK, in a SPIDER-MAN movie!

That was beyond phenomenal! Yikes!!!

Great cast man, I like them all!
AshleyWilliams - 7/18/2012, 8:10 AM
DDD!! How's it going brother?

Nice cast. I thought about Joe Anderson as Electro too, but then I decided to choose Nick Stahl for role.

nowtheresaBATman - 7/18/2012, 1:10 PM
^ is Nick Stahl even still alive? is he missing? in treatment or what?

The Kraven, Vulture & Rhino picks are great.
ager - 7/18/2012, 4:26 PM
