Fancast for Avengers sequel

Fancast for Avengers sequel

This is my first ever fancast. I figure I read and comment on them enough that it was time that I put my money where my mouth is and make my own. What better way to start than with than the next superhero gathering in the Avengers sequel.

For obvious reasosn already cast characters will not be changed, even though I wish we could replace Scarlet as Black Widow.

I am going to include the characters I would most like to see join the Avengers. Seeing as Thanos appears to be being set as the villain, I will not fancast a villainous character.



Ant Man - Aaron Eckhart

This was an easy choice. For the character I wanted someone in an age range right around RDJ and Ruffalo. More than likely a fair amount of science or intelligence based scenes will take place in the sequel and Eckhart is a strong enough actor to hold his own amongst outstanding actors like RDJ and Ruffalo, while also having a charm and charisma that could help him stand out rather than fall to background status and could command the lead role in an Ant Man movie.

Wasp - Emmy Rossum

Wasp was a difficult decision to make. Most fancasts go with Morena Baccarin; and as much as I like her, I feel her inclusion tended to be more due to her connection with Nathan Fillion rather than ability to pull off the role.
I chose Emmy Rossum because she is an extremely gorgeous woman and a very talented actress. Her look can be very sexy, yet she also has a look that to me says, there is more than just looks with her which is necessary for the character.

Black Panther - Chiwetel Ejiofor

Chiwetal is one of the most underrated actors around. He has the all the abilities, talent and look to be a badass Black Panther

The Falcon - Anthony Mackie

Now I know the popular choice of late is Jamie Foxx. While I agree he would kill it as The Falcon, I think his star power outshines that of Chris Evans as Cap, and seeing as Cap is the star and Falcon basically a sidekick, it really makes no sense to have a bigger name for a sidekick than the headliner. Mackie is a good up and coming actor, and would definitely be able to pull off the role.

Namor - Ian Somerhalder

For me, Namor was a difficult decision. After racking my brain for the perfect fit, it came to me that other fancasts were right with this selection. Somerhalder is a strong actor and has the perfect look for Namor.

Ms Marvel - Yvonne Strahovski

This was a no brainer. Beatiful, sexy, good actress, and looks good kicking ass. If you don't believe me or numerous others who have cast her, than try and watch Chuck.

Aren't you the guy who bitches about bitches about Keira Knightley, Olivia Wilde, and Zoe Salanda being in fan casts? Anyway, good work for your first fan cast. Here's who I'd have:

Simon Baker - Henry Pym
Mila Kunis or Evangeline Lily - Wasp
Matthew Goode - Namor
Kristinna Loken or Rachel Nichols - Mrs. Marvel.

Anyway, be a friend and check out my JLA Trilogy Cast.

I love all your picks for these characters. While some may argue that they aren't yours originally for others have picked most of these people, but still I think it's just that you would like to see them as much as the next fan. I would possibly consider someone a bit younger than Eckhart for Pym. Also Miss Rossum hasn't done anything that has stuck out in my mind, but I'm always up to being proven wrong. My favorite is by far Chiwetel Ejiofor for Panther, he was good in Red Belt and proved that he could be a very agile and threatening Panther. While many might argue that Djimon Hounsou would be perfect for the role, and he showed in Never Back Down that he can mix it up physically with anyone...I would prefer your pick. So all in all, nice picks. Hope to see more from you. Also, Sommerholder looks a lot like Namor in that picture, minus the facial hair of course.

I think Eckhart is too strong for Pym. He would be better than Evan's Cap- so id go a thinner, weaker route than he.

Evans is probably has the least star power of the roster so i dont think being outshined matters in this case. Its the rub he gets from his teammates that he uses to grow as an actor

Yes I am the one who complains at seeing Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde in every fancast. My one gripe with Keira is she seems too frail and eeak bodied to be believable in a cbm role. Good actress but doesn't fit for me.

On the part of Eckhart being older I felt that it worked considering in an Avengers sequel a good chunk of his scenes would be with RDJ and Ruffalo, so someone in that age range worked best.

With Foxx overshadowing Cap and why I went with Mackie instead as Falcon, I felt that since the character would most likely be introduced in Cap 2 it would be a bad move to have a sidekick as a bigget draw than the guy the who plays the title character.

@l0rdleg0las You still haven't checked out my JLA Trilogy cast. Please do so. And what do you think of my Avngers picks?

@lOrdlegOlas

Great fan cast, definitely A+ for me but a few picks I would change up are:

For Ant-Man/Hank Pym I would go with Benedict Cumberbatch, because if anything if you haven't seen his work, you should and I think with him in the role, he could do a way better job in the role

For Wasp/Janet van Dyne I would go with Rachel McAdams in the role because she would make such a believable Janet and not to mention she is a really great actress too, especially if you have seen her act

For Black Panther, definitely would go with Chiwetel if he were younger but he is older, so I would go with Edi Gathegi as T'Challa/Black Panther

For Falcon, I would go with Anthony Mackie as well

Namor I would go with Jonathan Rhys Meyers

And as Ms. Marvel, Yvonne Strahovski is also my pick

Overall great fan cast man really

@shadow11

I like Cumberbatch a lot, but I just think he would be a better villain. Off the top of my head I cant think of what villain, But I can see him owning a villainous role similar to how Hiddleston owns Loki.

With Chiwetal I didn't factor age into the choice. I just think he is a great actor who would own the part. Plus Marvel has shown they want the best actor over look or age. Look at the casting if RDJ and Ruffalo. Older not necessarily the right look in the case of Ruffalo but great actors.

McAdams would be a Great choice for Wasp

I really want to switch my Namor with yours now

what i didnt mention was that Mackie is great anyway. but my preference if Foxx
