FANCAST: Black Widow (By Tweeeeenkies3)
Hey, everyone! It's been a while, but I am back with a new cast! I decided to do a cast for my second favorite Avenger, the Black Widow OUTSIDE of the MCU! I hope you all enjoy :)
I know it has been a while, but I am back!
I had a few reasons for not uploading. I thought about leaving the site, but decided that I would stay, because I do really like many of you here. And, I have a few castings in mind, so I just needed/had to share them! So this is the first, in hopefully many to come!
Natalia/Natasha Romanova/Black Widow: Yuliya Snigir
NOTABLE ROLES: The Inhabited Island, a Good Day to Die Hard
While casting Black Widow, I wanted someone original. I didn't want Scarlett (though I do love her), nor did I want Elena Satine. I chose my favorite Russian actress, Yuliya Snigir. She is an amazing actress, who showed her action skills in the Inhanbited Island. With her job as a model, she knows how to be seductive, which is needed for BW, especially when she is undercover! She is also fluent in English, Russian, and French!
I did color Yuliya's hair red with GIMP, so she could match Black Widow even more!
Clint Barton/Hawkeye: Jake Gyllenhaal
NOTABLE ROLES: The Prince of Persia, Source Code, Love and Other Drugs
For Hawkeye, I did not want Jensen Ackles. I went with the choice I uploaded to DeviantART a while back, Jake Gyllenhaal. Yes, most of this cast aren't well known, but I would see him as the person who brings in the crowd who don't know comic books. He has a large fanbase. Jake has not only the action skills, but also the quick wit and humor. He'd be able to bring an emotional and hilarious performance, which is needed for Hawkeye!
Yelena Belova: Lea Seydoux
NOTABLE ROLES: Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Robin Hood, Inglourious Basterds
For Yelena, I wanted a fresh face. Someone stoic, sexy, and kick-ass. I chose the French model and actress, Lea Seydoux! I first watched her performance in Robin Hood, but didn't really notice her. I knew her as a model, but not as an actress. Then, her English breakout role, Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol came out. She was amazing! She was very kick-ass, and went through training to be very fluid with her motions. She fit Yelena so well. With training (weaponry, physical, and her voice), she'd be perfect!
Nick Fury: Michael Biehn
NOTABLE ROLES: The Terminator 1 & 2, The Divide, The Abyss
Nick was a harder one to cast, but thanks to @MrBlueSky for this suggestion! I think Michael would be perfect. At age 56, he'd be great for an aged Nick Fury. He is completely capable of still holding his own in a fight, and is still really well built. He can play a badass leader with ease. This role was made for him!
Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian: Alexander Skarsgard
NOTABLE ROLES: True Blood, Battleship, Straw Dogs
I have seen so many castings with Alexander, but I never felt like any comic book characters fit him well. Then I thought about him for the Red Guardian and how I'd like to see him portrayed, and he just fit! Along with Yelena, he'd be a main villain in the film. So I needed someone who can play the villainous type. Alexander can be a badass, scary, and is tall as hell. His brooding nature just fits.
Maria Hill: Alexa Davalos
NOTABLE ROLES: Clash of the Titans, Angel, The Chronicles of Riddick
In Alexa's early performances, she mainly showed her emotional levels of acting. In Angel, she showed her seductive, somewhat bitchy side. The bitch performance matches Maria so well. Then in the Chronicles of Riddick, she proved herself in action. She fits the classic "Maria" look well.With a pixie cut, she'd look beyond perfect. Plus, like Maria, she speak multiple languages!
Sharon Carter: Charlotte Sullivan
NOTABLE ROLES: Rookie Blue, The Kennedys, Defendor
Sharon's role would be somewhat large(ish). She would serve as a SHIELD Agent, who beomes friends with the Black Widow, when she joins SHIELD. I chose Charlotte, because of her role in Rookie Blue and the Kennedys. She has proven herself as a versatile actress, with a great future. She is no stranger to action and handling a gun. PLus, her timeless beauty reminds me of Sharon, because she is meant to look so much like her Aunt, Peggy. I just think she'd be perfect!
Ivan Petrovich: Olek Krupa
HEIGHT: I can't find it (But it doesn't matter for this character)
NOTABLE ROLES: Salt, Home Alone 3, Law & Order
This would not be a larger role. Ivan would serve as a surrogate father to Natalia/Natasha. He helped train them in the Black Widow Ops. I chose Olek, because he can play mean, nasty characters, along with caring, father figures.
Tell me what you think, if you'd like!
I hope you all enjoyed the cast. I promise to start uploading more often like I used to do!
