FAN CAST MY MCU: THE X-MEN

Sworn to protect a world that fears and hates them...
My fan cast/story for the first in my X-Men film series.

The X-Men are a superhero team in the Marvel Comics Universe. They were created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963). The basic concept of the X-Men is that under a cloud of increasing anti-mutant sentiment, Professor Xavier created a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, and to prove mutants can be heroes.[1] Xavier recruited Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast, and Marvel Girl, calling them "X-Men" because they possess special powers due to their possession of the "X-gene," a gene which normal humans lack and which gives mutants their abilities. Early on, however, the "X" in X-Men stood for "extra" power which normal humans lacked. It was also alluded to that mutations occurred as a result of radiation exposure.


NOTE: My MCU pretends like they're has never been a cbm outside of this and my previous fan cast in my MCU. If any actor in here is already playing a role of a cb character in real life do not complain?


Story/plot: Charles Xavier and Erik Leshnerr. Two close friends with slightly separate ideas on humanity. They are both mutants. Too show the human world they aren't a threat they try to stop a terrorist organization in Africa lead by none other than Amahl Farouk a.k.a the Shadow King, another very powerful mutant. They can't do it alone. They assemble a team of young mutants
Cyclops
Marvel Girl
Beast
Iceman
and
Angel

To stop the Shadow King. When they get to Africa, can they survive the creatures, terrorist, and mutants that lie a head of them. And can they convince a young mutant under the control of Shadow King to fight for them, not against them...?



ON TO THE FAN CAST




Professor X: Professor Charles Xavier is the creator of the X-Men and founder of the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. His dream of peaceful coexistence between mutants and humanity has long been the driving force for the X-Men. An immensely powerful telepath and scientific genius, Xavier is one the world's greatest masterminds. In this movie Xavier is on the field with the X-Men and is the leader.

Jason Isaacs: I think he'd make a great Xavier. He has the right amount of acting abilities and he looks like him to me.


Others Considered:
Ralph Fiennes
Mark Strong





Magneto: In this movie Magneto i a good guy. He is a part of the X-Men, but you can tell he thinks that Mutants are the dominant species. Magneto or the self-titled "Master of Magnetism" has played many roles in his long life: terrorist, savior, revolutionary, ruler, villain, and anti-hero.


Mark Strong: He is an amazing actor and he would be amazing as Magneto. I wanted Magneto and Xavier to be young, but not to young.


Others Considered:
Ralph Fiennes
Jason Isaacs





Cyclops: The first X-Man, Scott Summers possesses the mutant ability to project powerful concussive blasts from his eyes. He is visually distinctive for the ruby quartz battle visor he wears to control his destructive power. A born leader, Cyclops succeeded Professor X to command the X-Men, and became a mutant revolutionary. Cyclops visor has different settings that change based on whatever he wants it to be.

Stun: This sends an amount of pressure of his choosing to a things or object
Burns: Melts and sets on fire almost any object.
Laser: Zaps trough things. Can make a hole in almost any substance except adamantium and vibranium.


Chace Crawford: I think he's a pretty good actor and could carry the emotion needed for the role.


Others Considered:
Chris Pine
Ian Somerhalder




Marvel Girl: Jean Grey was one of the five original X-Men, and the ex-wife of Cyclops/Scott Summers. An Omega-level mutant telekinetic and telepath, Jean has gained near limitless powers as a recurrent host of the Phoenix Force.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead: She is a great actor and i think she could very easily play the role.


Others Considered:
None




Beast: A founding member of the X-Men, Dr. Hank McCoy is equally known for his beastly appearance as he is for his superb intellect and wit. He does not have fur yet.

Michael Angarano: I think he could play the nerdy guy need for the role. He'd have to beef up though.


Others Considered:
None



Angel:A mutant and original member of the X-Men. Warren received his angelic wings at an tender age, as well as a unique healing factor in his blood.

Alex Pettyfer: He is a great actor. After watching I Am Number Four and Alex Rider: Storm breaker i know he could pull of the role. I also think he looks the part. A rich pretty boy.


Others Considered:
Zac Efron
Lucas Till



Iceman: The youngest member of the original X-Men. Bobby is an Omega-level mutant, although it took some help from Professor Xavier to realize this. Bobby's control of ice is vast; he can create shields, clones, spikes, slides and also freeze others.

Kelly Blatz: He's a pretty good actor and i think he can play the type of role Bobby is. He's the jokester of the group and the one that makes mistakes. When he makes mistakes Cyclops gets mad and it pushes him to do better so he can impress the whole team.


Others Considered:
Jake Gyllenhaal
Josh Hutcherson




Storm: Storm is a unique mutant with the extraordinary ability to perceive and manipulate the forces and elements that govern weather, making her incredibly powerful. Storm starts off as a bad guy working for Shadow King, but ends up turning to the X-Men's side.

Zoe Saldana: Zoe Saldana is an AMAZING actor. She was one of the best parts of Avatar (which was a movie i didn't particularly like) and shows she can sound African, unlike Halle Berry in the previous X-Men films.


Others Considered:
Kerry Washington
Megan Good




Shadow King: The Shadow King is a powerful psionic entity that can possess and control human bodies. Originally thought to be a mutant, while possessing Amahl Farouk Shadow King was the first evil mutant [sic] fought by Charles Xavier. Their battle was a major factor in Xavier later forming the X-Men. For many years the Shadow King's primary human manifestation was a man named Amahl Farouk. It was as Farouk that he originally confronted Professor Xavier, inspiring Xavier to form the X-Men.

Kevin Michael Richardson: I chose him because he is a great actor. Mainly known for his voice acting on IMDB he is credited for 334 roles. He voiced this character on Wolverine and the X-Men which he did a fantastic job on and to me he looks like Amahl Farouk.

Nice job.

I gotta say, Jason Issacs as Xavier is inspired and better than seeing him cast as the Green Goblin for the 100,000th time.

Good story too with an interesting villain choice.
