FAN CAST: The Iron Man by 789
This is one of my dream casts about Iron Man films.I have made a lot of effort to create this fan cast and I hope you will like it.
Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark was born in Long Island, New York, to Howard Anthony Stark and Maria Collins Carbonell Stark. In his youth, Tony Stark was a precociously intelligent young boy. When Tony was 7 he was sent to a boarding school, and during this experience he found people difficult to relate to. This was when he became fascinated by machines. By the age of 15 Tony had enrolled in MIT (The Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated at the top of his class at age 19 with double masters in physics and engineering.
At the age of 21 his parents were tragically killed in a car accident. Afterwards, Tony inherited Stark Industries, an unparalleled mega-conglomerate that mostly manufactured weapons for the United States military. One of his first projects as the new CEO was to purchase the manufacturer who designed his parents car and have the faulty brake system, which was seemingly the cause of their deaths, redesigned in order to prevent any further incidents, thus saving lives. Unknown to Stark, the true architect of his parents' deaths was a business move by Republic Oil (later renamed Roxxon Oil). Lacking in business skills, Tony promoted secretary Pepper Potts to be his executive assistant and left the majority of his workload on her so that he could avoid what he saw as a burden.
During the Vietnam War (later retconned as the Gulf War, then later still as the war in Afghanistan), Stark was at one of his munitions plants testing new technology for the military when he was injured by his own land mine that lodged shrapnel near his heart. Tony was then captured by a local warlord named Wong-Chu (a lackey of the Mandarin) and forced under threat of death to create a doomsday weapon for him with another captive, the famed Nobel award-winning physicist, Yin Sen. The shrapnel was working its way towards Stark's heart and slowly killing him, but he and the physicist created an iron suit in secret that would save Tony's life. The suit contained an iron chest plate with magnetic fields that halted the shrapnel in its place. Yin Sen then created a diversion, sacrificing himself so that Stark could put on the power armor in time and escape captivity. In the suit, Stark took on the warlord and his men and avenged Yin Sen's death, thus Iron Man was born.
Thanks comicvine for information.
Matt Bomer as Tony Stark /Iron Man
After being gravely injured and pressured under the threat of death to create a weapon of mass destruction, Tony Stark instead created a powered suit of armor to free himself and protect the world as the Invincible Iron Man.
I like acting of Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man.He seemed me great in first film, but now he seems me a little old, though he still stays in role.Matt Bomer is great actor too and he has similar characteristics for Tony Stark, so that’s why I have chosen him as Iron man.I hope that after reboot of film he will be the next Iron Man.
Jon Hamm as Howard Stark
Howard Anthony Stark is the father of Tony Stark, Iron Man and was the founder of Stark Industries. Howard Stark was a brilliant inventor and scientist. Together with his father, Howard Sr. he founded Stark Industries, one of the world's best technology firms.
Jon Hamm is only five years old from Matt Bomer, but let’s remember that we have never senn him in Iron Man films alive, so I think that Jon Hamm will be excellent Howard Stark, because his role in MadmenTV series was great.
Jamie Ray Newman as Pepper Pots/Rescue
Virginia "Pepper" Potts was originally the executive assistant to Anthony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, with whom she has been romantically linked. Recently, thanks to some cybernetic enhancments and her own suit of armor, she has become the hero known as Rescue aka Iron Woman.
Jamie Ray newman is brilliant choice for Pepper Pots, because at first she lookslike Gwyneth Peltrow and her height is similar to character’s height.
Columbus Short as James Rhodes/War Machine
War Machine is a heavier-armed version of Iron Man. The "Variable Threat Response Battle Suit" is often worn by James Rhodes.
At first I wanted Anthony Mackie to be war macine, but then I changed my mind after seeing acting of Columbus Short in film “Losers”.I think that Columbus Short is good choice for James Rhodes and he will manage role .
Yin Dawei as Ho Yinsen
Ho Yinsen is an ally of Tony Stark and co-creator of the original Iron Man armor.
I know that this actor is not so famous in Hollywood, but I don’t see anyone else in this role.
Elias koteas as Jarvis
Butler to the Stark family, Jarvis went on to be the caretaker of the Avengers Mansion and has laid his life on the line for them several times. Recent -out-of-continuity media depicts Jarvis not as a human, but as a sophisticated artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark, the Iron Man.
I have chosen Elias Koteas, because he is great actor and has all details for role, and I want see Jarvis as servent not as voice of computer system.
Owain Yeoman as Happy Hogan
Harold Joseph Hogan, or Happy, was a former boxer with a losing record. He got his nick name from him never smiling. He eventually ran into Tony Stark and saved his life by pulling him out of a car wreck. He was then hired as a personal assistant and bodyguard for Tony, sometimes giving him moral advice. Being close to Tony, Happy is attacked numerous times due to Tony's alter ego. Despite all the troubles he remains loyal to Tony.
Owain Yeoman is great choice for this role and he will manage it.
Bruce Locke as Mandarin
The Mandarin is a brilliant scientist and martial artist who uses the Ten Rings of Power as his primary weapons. He is a powerful adversary of Iron Man.
At first I wanted Ken Watanabe as Mandarin, but I have seen him a long time in many ironman casts, so I found Bruce Locke as replacement of Watanabe.I know that Loke is less known actor, though he played brilliant role in Mortal Combat series , so I think that role will suit him better than Watanabe.
Kevin Spacey as Obadiah Stane/Ironmonger
Obadiah Stane was the first man to use the identity of the Iron Monger. The billionaire industrialist used the Iron Monger armor in a battle against his rival and arch-nemesis, Anthony Stark/Iron Man.
Kevin Spacey has played role of Lex Luthor which I think is similar to personality of this character.
Daneel Ackles as Bethany Cabe
Bethany Cabe is a former bodyguard and private investigator. She worked as Tony Stark's bodyguard and eventually became his lover. She is one of the few people in Tony's close knit inner circle. She is one of the two loves of Stark's life.
She is the best for this role.Her skills are perfect for this character.
Christopher Walken as Justin Hammer
Hammer was an industrialist, like Tony Stark, but a significant part of his fortune was amassed through the funding of organized crime. When a criminal signed on as his minion, they agreed to pay him half of their profits in exchange for upgrades to their equipment and getting their bail paid in the event of an arrest. Hammer is always seen trying to outsmart Tony Stark in every single way and shape. For example, on multiple accounts, Justin has tried to kill Tony Stark and steal his Iron Man armor to build multiple Iron men for the highest bidder. Good or evil. Hammer also has many applications in the military.
I’m sure that none except Walken can play role of Justin Hammer.Christopher Walken’s talents are perfect for this role he can be seen as bad politic.
Sonny Chiba as Wong-Chu
Wong-Chu was a commander for the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. After a reckless American contingent sets off a booby trap in the jungles of Vietnam, one of Wong-Chu's Cong patrols finds a survivor named Anthony Stark. Wong-Chu reviews the unconcious civilian's papers and finds out that Stark is a famous weapons inventor. Wong Chu's assistant Hsaio informs him that the shrapnel in Stark's heart should kill him within the week. Wong-Chu tries to capitalize on this by telling Stark that he is dying and if he creates a powerful new weapon for him, his surgeons will save him. Wong-Chu perishes in an ammo dump explosion caused by Iron Man.
Maybe Sonny Chiba is a little old for this role, but I think that he can manage it.
Scott Grimes as Dmitri Bukharin/Crimson Dynamo
The Crimson Dynamo is an armor worn by many in the service of the Russian (formally USSR) government, some good, some evil. Dmitri Bukharin is the current wearer of the armor and is a member of the Winter Guard.
This actor has plyed in TV series called “ER”, it proofs that he can play role of scientists and doctors and has similar characteristic for Russian.
Dustin Clare as Mark Scarlotti/Whiplash
After graduating from college, Mark Scarlotti went to work for the Maggia as a weapons designer. Eventually, Scarlotti developed weapons, first for the Maggia, then for himself. Scarlotti created a steel-fiber whip that could crack almost any substance except for adamantium. Scarlotti had a natural athletic aptitude with the whip and he practiced with it until he became an expert in the use of the whip as a weapon.At Scarlotti's request, he used his creation to become a special costumed agent known as Whiplash for the Maggia. Whiplash established a good reputation with the Maggia in his first battle with the invincible Iron Man although the fight ended in a draw.
After seeing his acting in “Spartacus” I understood that he is the only who can replace Mickey Rourke as Whiplash.
Gerard Butler as Boris Bullski /Titanium Man
Born in Ukraine, Boris Bullski rose in the ranks of the KGB and eventually was partnered with his fellow comrade Black Widow. When Tony Stark's bodyguard Iron Man was shown to the public, the Soviet Union decided to show their superiority to the United States by creating a powered armor of their own. Made from titanium, a stronger substance than iron, the armor was larger than Iron Man's yet technologically inferior. Bullski used the armor to challenge Iron Man in a one-sided fight, though Stark managed to win.
I know that most of members want see Gerard Butler as Kraven Hunter, but most of his role are similar to this character, so he will be Titanium Man.
Norman Reedus as Donald Gill/Blizzard
Blizzard is a longtime enemy of Iron Man. He later turned over a new leaf and joined the Thunderbolts for redemption.
Norman Reedus is great choice for this role.He is great actor for villains such like Blizzard.
Joe Anderson as Arthur Parks /Living Laser
Arthur Parks was a brilliant scientist in the field of laser research and design. He became a career criminal using laser technology, and then a being of pure living energy. He is an Iron Man enemy.
At first he will seem a little young for role, but he is the only whom I can see as Living laser.
Josh Hartnett as David Cannon /Whirlwind
Whirlwind has the mutant ability to spin his body rapidly, giving himself a whirlwind effect. He uses his power for his own gains.
Maybe Josh Hartnett will seem a little wrong choice, but I’ assure you that he can play Whirlwind, because he is tall enough and well-built.Other things depend from CGI design.
Michael Pitt as Gary Gilbert /Firebrand
Gary Gilbert was raised in a hostile environment which is believed to be the reason of his radicalism. When he decided to voice his opinions along with his sister Roxanne, he began to become more and more obsessed. His family banished him and his sister for their actions from their home. Since Gilbert was a skilled physicist and had taken training courses at Stark Industries, he had a certain affinity for making weapons and power suits. Using his knowledge, he created a power suit of his own and became the villain known as Firebrand.
I’m sure, Michael Pitt is great choice for firebrand.
Marton Csokas as Jack Taggart /Firepower
A powerful robotic suit equipped with multiple weapons created by the US government. Firepower comes into conflict with Iron Man because it is equipped with stolen armor technology.
This villain is a little different, but I think that Marton Csokas can play role of scientist who uses Firepower armor against I ron Man, so he is included as villain.
Javier Bardem as Basil Sandhurst /Controller(voice)
Basil worked as an electromechanical/chemical research scientist. His obsession with control and refusal on ethics had him banned from most research labs. His brother accidentally caused an explosion in a lab which would cause Basil to be crippled and later get the power suit which would lead him to his criminal career. He would first try take over New York City, but would later be stopped by Iron Man.
This character needs deep and roraring voice. Javier Bardem is the only who can give such voice ,and what about of body CGI will care it.
John Leguizamo as George Tarleton /M.O.D.O.K
Before George Tarleton was made into MODOK, by Advanced Idea Mechanics, he was of average intellect. For AIM, Tarleton worked on experiments to unlock mental potential. Some sources say he volunteered and others say he was forced, but Tarleton became the next experiment.After the transformation, he was to be known as MODOC: Mental Organism Designed Only for Computing. He quickly overthrew AIM, and became their commander. He was then known as MODOK: Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. As leader of AIM, he has had confrontations with Captain America, SHIELD and Namor.
John Leguizamo is great choice for this character, because he has plyed similar role in film “Spwan”, and he will have great look by help of CGI.
Orlando Bloom as Sinclair Abbott /Spymaster
Spymaster is a master of espionage, and of industrial espionage in particular. Different men have assumed the mantle of Spymaster over the years, but each has become a sworn enemy of Iron Man.
Orlando Bloom could seem unsuitable for this character, but after seeing his actin in film “Musketeers” I understood that this role is special for him.
Callum Blue as John Morley /Ghost
Ghost is an industrial saboteur and mercenary who possesses an incredible stealth suit that grants him invisibility and intangibility, among other capabilities. His true identity is unknown. He is currently a member of the Thunderbolts.
Callum Blue is great actor, he has plyed similar role in series “Dead like me” and has proved that he can play villain roles in “Smallville”.
Brian Ausrin Green as Michael O'Brien/Guardsman
Michael o'Brien was a police sergeant who believed Iron Man was responsible for his brother's death. After fighting Iron Man as the Guardsman, he discovered his mistake and became an ally to Iron Man and the Avengers. He acted as Iron Man briefly and fought Sunfire and the Mandarin.
After seeing acting of Brian Austin Green in “Smallville” I have decided to give this role to him, because it will suit him.
Denise Quaid as Nick Fury
Nicholas Joseph Fury served in World War II as the leader of the Howling Commandos. He later became an agent, and eventually director, of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury is one of the greatest strategic minds in the world, a born leader, and master of espionage.
For me Denise Quaid will always be as Nick Fury, and evan better than Samuel Jackson.
Evan Rachel-Wood as Natasha Romanoff /Black Widow
Former KGB agent Natasha Romanova, known as Black Widow, is one of the greatest spies ever to live and is one of the best agents S.H.I.E.L.D. has ever had. She's a longtime member of the Avengers and was a founding member of the short-lived Los Angeles-based superteam: The Champions.
After Scarlett Johanson I can see Evan- Rachel Wood as Black Widow, she only need s practice on her body to look like this character.
Garrett Hedlund as Clint Barton /Hawkeye
Trained by criminals and inspired by heroes, Clint Barton has grown from a troubled youth into one of the greatest heroes on Earth. The world knows him best as Hawkeye: Earth's Mightiest Marksman.
You know I don’t see Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, because he is too old for this role.Hawkeye must be young and more attractive and I think that Garrett Hedlund is the only one who can play this role at the same time I would want see him in next films replaced Jeremy Renner and be couple with Scarlett Johanson.
Billy Crudup as Vision
The robot villain Ultron created the Vision - a type of android he dubs a synthezoid - to use against Ultron's own creator, Dr. Hank Pym . The Avengers believe that the Vision's body was created from that of the original Human Torch, the android Jim Hammond, while the patterns of his synthetic brain were based on those of the then-deceased Wonder Man. The Avengers would later learn that the time lord Immortus harnessed the power of the Forever Crystal to split the original Human Torch into two separate entities; one body remained the original Torch, while Ultron used the other to create the Vision.
Billy Crudup is a great actor and he has played similar role of this character in film “Watchmen”.
Gabriel macht as Ag.Phil Coulson
Agent Phil Coulson first appeared in the Iron Man live action movie. He is an agent of SHIELD who helped to protect Pepper Potts and went on to lead the investigation surrounding Mjolnir. He has since made his first appearance in Marvel's 616 continuity.
Gabriel Macht is great actor and he has plyed similar role, so I think that he can replace Clark Gregg if it will be necessary.
Brian J.White as Sam Wilson /Falcon
Empowered by evil, inspired by good, Sam Wilson's bleak outlook on life was wiped away the day he met Captain America. He uses his winged costume, combat prowess, and avian telepathy as the Falcon, defender of Harlem.
Brian J.White is great choice for this role.He has similar characteristic and looks nice in picture.
Robert Patrick as Ultron(voice)
Created by Henry Pym to be a technological landmark, he soon intellectually surpassed Pym, and eventually fought the Avengers after organizing the Masters of Evil. He has clashed with the Avengers numerous times, and is currently waiting to conquer the Earth.
Robert Patrick has played role of robot villain in film “Terminator 2”, so I think that he ican voice this character.
Patrick Wilson as Abner Jenkins /Beetle
Growing tired of his mechanic job Abe Jenkins created a suit of armor and became the Beetle. Originally a criminal he changed his ways while in the Thunderbolts. Despite short absences, he continues to return to the Thunderbolts.
Patrick Wilson is great choice for this role.I understood it seeing film “Watchmen”.
Aaron Eckhart as Aaron Soames /Mauler
Cord then hired a mercenary named Brendan Doyle to steal the MAULER suit and erase from Stark Internationale's computer records all information regarding its origin, design, specifications and whereabouts. Cord had plans to rent the MAULER suit to the highest bidder to finance his return to civilian life after prison. Doyle managed to gain access to the MAULER suit by a former friend named James Rhodes who was a Stark employee at the time. Doyle failed to erase the computer records and was not willing to take a former comrade's life to do it. Doyle resigned his loyalty to Cord and flew off with the MAULER suit.
I think that Eckhart will manage this role.
Bradley Cooper as Fred Myers /Boomerang
Former pro baseball player who decides to turn to crime. Uses Boomerangs as weapons.
I think that this role will just suit Bradley Cooper.
Marion Cotillard as Sunset Bain
Sunset Bain holds a Ph. D from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). According to "Iron Man" vol. 3 #19 (August, 1999), during her studies Sunset met fellow student Tony Stark. He was a few years younger than her but already close to graduation, thanks to his brilliance. She seduced the guy and convinced him to show her around Stark Industries. While there she took notes of the security system. Not long afterward, the Stark facilities was burglarized and several prototypes of advanced technology went missing.Sunset had apparently orchestrated the burglary and ended up in possession of the various designs. She used them to establish her own company, Baintronics. She no longer had any use for Stark and stopped dating him.
Marion Cotillard is great actress and she can play this role, because she has played similar roles before too.
Nikolaj-Coster Valdau as Bram Velsing /Dreadknight
Bram Velsing was a Latverian scientist that served Doctor Doom. Bram Velsing started to show rebellious ambitions, and Dr. Doom would not have that. Doom grafted a skull-like helmet to Velsing's face and Bram was left in Balkan wilds. He was nurtured back to health by the Children and Victoria Frankenstein, the granddaughter of Dr. Victor von Frankenstein. Velsing came across a mutant horse and used it as a mount (Dubbing the mutated stallion Hellhorse). He also stole resources from Frankenstein. He eventually plotted to take Victor Frankenstein's secret notebooks. His plans were thwarted by Frankenstein and Iron Man and he was put into custody under Victoria. He eventually escaped with his weaponry, and he engaged in mercenary work so he could gain enough wealth and power to attempt a coup of Latveria. He teamed with villains such as Morgan Le Fay and her son Mordred.At one point, Clint Barton used Dreadknight's armor for an infiltration mission. It seems that Dreadknight lost or abandoned the armor and his weapons.
This actor has played similar roles, so that’s why I have decided to give him this role.
Frank Welker as Arsenal (voice)
Arsenal was created by Howard Stark and a group of Allied scientist during World War II. This superhuman fighting machine was called "Project Tomorrow" and it was to be deployed in case the Axis won the war. The robot was guided by a computer program called "Mistress" which was actually programmed with the persona of Maria Stark, Howard Stark's wife. The Allies won the war and Arsenal was placed in storage underneath the Avenger's mansion.
Frank Welker has voiced Megatron several times, so he is great choice for this villain.
Tanit Phoenix as Whitney Frost /Madame Masque
Whitney Frost is the daughter of the master criminal Count Nefaria. She frequently appears as a nemesis to Iron Man but the two have also been lovers before. Recently, she was in a relationship with The Hood and fought alongside his gang.
She is brillainy choice for this role, though at first I wanted Jodilyn O’keef , but I think that Tanit Phoenix will be better Madame Masque thatn she.
Josh Holloway as Frank Payne /Constrictor
A former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent sent undercover. Constrictor soon became what he was trying to stop. Since joining the Initiative he has lost his arms and had them replaced with cybernetic implants.
His acting in film Mission Impossible:Ghsot Protocol” made me to give him this role.
Josh Brolin as Caldwell Rozza /Crusher
Communist scientist Caldwell Rozza made a serum to give his President superhuman powers but was forced by said President into taking the formula himself. He mutated into a 7ft tall, 1000lb superhuman with massive strength and skin tough engough to repel pistol fire. He was also immensly heavy.
Josh Brolin is great choice for this character.He has played scientist role, so he just need CGI changes.
Jon Bernthal as Bruno Horgan /Melter
Bruno Horgan is a former competitor of Anthony Stark. He becomes the Melter and is one Iron Man's deadliest foes. The Melter is eventually killed by the Scourge of the Underworld.
I know that some of members want se Berntha as Wolverien, but I don't, instead I think that he will do great job if he play this role.
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Fin-Fang Foom (voice)
Fin Fang Foom is an alien dragon from Kakaranathara. He and several others of his race left their world in search of planets to conquer. They came to Earth and landed in ancient China, there the invaders changed their forms to mimic humans. They put Foom in a catatonic state as a back up. He is awakened by Chan Liuchow, a teenager who uses Foom to decimate the Communist party of China. Afterwards, the boy uses an herb to put the dragon back to sleep. At some point Foom is captured by The Collector and put into a type of zoo with other monsters. He stays here until the Mole Man attacks. Their freedom doesn't last long as all the escaped monsters are rounded up and put on Monster Island by the Fantastic Four. Foom dislikes being on the island and escapes back to China and into hibernation once again.
Cary Tagawa has talents of playing villain roles, and his voice abilities are enough too for this character.
Nicholas Tse as Temugin
Temugin was brought to a monastery in Tibet as a small child. His only memories of his father are of The Mandarin carrying him and shielding him from the cold winds of the mountains of Tibet. Temugin was raised by the monks of the monastery. He excelled at the study of martial arts, demonstrating a talent for channeling his Chi that rivaled his father. As a young man, Temugin was sent to kill Anthony Stark, also known as Iron Man. Despite his skill and power, Temugin lacked the brutality and bloodthirstiness of his father, and failed at this mission. During this assassination attempt, Temugin learned that Anthony Stark was also Iron Man. However, his father wiped his memories in a rage over his failure, and thus unknowing protected Anthony Stark's secret identity for several years.
Nicholas Tse has plyed similar role in film “Shaolin”, so he can play this role and be son of Bruce Locke.
Joseph -Gordon Levitt as Ezekiel Stane
Ezekiel is the megalomaniac son of the late Obadiah Stane, also known as Iron Monger.He share similarities with Tony Stark/Iron man, but he is younger, more intelligent and much more ruthless. He is described as a kind of sociopathic futurist, an opportunistic super-villain who exploits the modern corporate run, greed-driven society to further his own ends. Ezekiel seeks revenge against Tony Stark for his father's death and, to that end, he manipulated forces to try and discredit and destroy The Order, Tony's newest super-team, but failed to accomplish this.
Joseph-Gordon Levitt is perfect choice for role, because his role in film “GIJoe:Rise of Cobra” was so good that I don’t know whom else can play this.Though I had some candidates: Paul Dano and Carter Jenkins.
America Olivo as Justine Hammer/Crimson Cowl
The first Crimson Cowl was actually the evil robot known as Ultron. He gathered the second incarnation of the Masters of Evil, which included Melter, Whirlwind, Radioactive Man, Klaw, and the the second Black Knight. Ultron was able to brainwash, blackmail and frame the Avengers butler, Jarvis, to make it appear that he was the actual Crimson Cowl. The ruse was discovered and the Masters of Evil were eventually defeated with help from the Black Knight who had only signed up with the Masters of Evil in order to warn the Avengers.
Well I have chosen her suddenly, but I think it’s right, because she is talented actress and I can see her as evil businesswoman and daughter of Justin Hammer.
Alexander Skaarsgard as Simon Maddicks /Killer Shrike
Simon Maddicks began his life in the United States military. After being raised in Williamsburg, Virginia Maddicks enlisted the moment he could, though much of his past is shrouded in mystery because of Maddick's lack of memory. After his term of service he was gainfully employed by the Roxxon Oil Company as a mercenary. He was shipped over to Brand Corporation's Mutagenics Laboratory where he underwent extensive physical training and genetic conditioning. He also underwent a procedure that implanted a tiny anti-gravity generator at the base of his spine which enables his flight. Upon his return to Roxxon he was given his costume and the codename "Killer Shrike".
Alexander Skaarsgard has characteristics for role and he is special choice for this villain.
So that’s all. I hope you liked it.
And I want know whom of these two actors you prefer for Iron Man:Robert Downey Jr or Matt Bomer?
Tell me about it in your comments.
