X-MEN





PROF. X/CHARLES XAVIER: LIAM NEESON (BATMAN BEGINS)
I know that this is an odd choice, but he did mentor legendary characters such as Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins and Obi-Wan in Star Wars. Liam Neeson is one of the best actors out there…

CYCLOPS/SCOTT SUMMERS: SAM WORTHINGTON (AVATAR)
I wanted to use Brandon Routh but I felt that Sam Worthington would be better…
Cyclops needs to have more screen time in films…

PHOENIX/JEAN GREY: RACHEL NICHOLS (G.I JOE)
She looks like Jean and can act…

WOLVERINE/JAMMES HOWLETT: MARK WAHLBERG (THE DEPARTED) OR CHRISTAIN KANE (LEVERAGE)
Mark Wahlberg is good at playing the aggressive “lone wolf”…I believe that this is a very good choice.
I haven’t seen much of Christian Kane (I’ve watched half a Leverage episode), but people favor him for this role…and he’s short.
Wolverine needs to be more badass if they have e reboot

STORM/ORORO MUNROE: ZOE SALDANA (AVATAR)
Good actress…she can use her Avatar accent for Storm.

ROGUE: ASHLEY GREENE (THE TWILIGHT SERIES)
I don’t know…
Rogue needs to be a much tougher character in the movies…
My initial pick was Lyndsay Fonseca

GAMBIT/ REMY LEBEAU: IAN SOMERHALDER (VAMPIRE DIARIES) OR RODRIGO SANTORO (300/POST GRAD)
Both of these actors have appeared in television series LOST…and they are both good actors…
M.O Kitsch was an awesome Gambit even though he didn’t have the accent…
Somerhalder or Santoro???

BEAST: OWAIN YEOMAN (THE MENTALIST)
This guy is a great actor who is good at playing a character that is both smart and physically intimidating on The Mentalist.

ICEMAN/ ROBERT DRAKE: CHRIS PINE (STAR TREK)
Pine is a good actor…I used him as the Flash in my JLA cast
I hated Iceman in the Singer/Ratner film trilogy…

ANGEL/ WARREN WORTHINGTON III: TEDDY SEARS (DOLLHOUSE)
I haven’t seen him act…but he looks the part

that is very cool cast,i'm not to sure about your cast of liam neeson for professor x.
ddd done a starjammers cast & he had ed harris in the role.
personally i'd go with ed harris,but this your fancast & you can do no worse than fox.
so well done.

Thanks guys...BTW,check out the cool DBZ cast above this (in fanfics)

I like it:) Its quite original.
Liam Neeson can play any part! he's a superb actor and i think he'd make prof X proud!
i hated Avatar so il do my best not to be bias against Worthington who in all fairness, is not a bad actor. same applies to Storm cast.
the only one i dislike is your Jean Grey choice, i dont think she could do the Phoenix side which i thought Famke Jansenns did well!
Wahlberg would be a very good choice, he's got the chops and could pull of that anamalistic aggresion.
Outstanding choices for Gambit(not a completly bias comment due to my love of LOST). Id pick Santoro over Sommerhalder.
WELL CASTED MAN

haha, shot for the promotion

No to Worthington and Wahlberg. The rest are good!
smokahontas - 8/7/2010, 11:23 AM
awesome cast! love the gambit choices! i also have Greene as Rogue! she'd be perfect! i don't like Worthington as Cyclops at all however. he's too short and i don't think he has the chops

@ TheOneWhoRoseUp thank the sweet lord! i am not the only person who hated Avatar! it was such a lame ass, knock off of Ferngully ha ha

GAMBIT @ Trust me, TEDDY SEARS is a gr8 actor, perfcet for ANGEL!!!

Apart from WORTHINGTON, top marks dude!

Would luv to see this movie! :)

@ leee777 sam worthington for cyclops is a good call,why because hopefully as he makes more movies his acting abilty improves as well.
i know at the moment his a bit wooden.

Not bad!

Sam Worthington is only 5'10" Scott Summers is
6'3", looks like Singer all over again, short
Cyclops! Plus he can't do an American accent to
save his life!

Mark Wahlberg all wrong for Wolvie! Good bet
with Kane!

But good over-all cast!
marvel72 - 8/8/2010, 8:44 AM
@ ddd sam wortington to short for cyclops,what about hugh jackman being to tall for wolverine.
whats wolverine 5'3"-5'4".
DDD - 8/10/2010, 4:17 AM
Deadpool@ you're right, Logan is listed at 5'3"
on Marvel bios! That's all I know! So Christian
Kane is OK for Wolvie at 5'8"! Hugh Jackman is
freakin' 6'2", almost a whole foot taller than
Logan's listing.

James Marsden who played Cyclops in Singer's
inaccurate X-men is 5'11".
