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!
