Why is it so hard trying to find a picture of Blunt without her shirt on?

Wow...very cool cast. Of course, I don't usually like double casts (such as Sam Rockwell, who has been Justin Hammer), but this is brilliant. Great job!

Prett decent cast, I must say!
I like most of them!

~ Armie would have been very good!
But, see, I have lost my respect for him, after he was caught with weed...I know, it's weird. But, I did.
He is still a GREAT actor! And a good choice!

~Josh could work as Iron Man! May be a little big, body wise, for the role, but, could probably pull it off! He is a great actor!

~Joel has become quite popular lately around these parts...What has happened?!?!
He could be a very good pick! I think he may be a bit old though.

~ I have never heard of Sam Rochwell before...

~ Rose is a great GREAT pick! She has the look, the voice, and can pull off the "waspy" attitude!
Plus. she is freakin' gorgeous! Amazing pick!

~ I hate Paul Rudd. He is not a very good actor, plus, I have never seen him act seriously before.
Not my favorite choice...

~Very nice Hawkeye!
He may be a bit old, as well...But, still very good!
Great actor, plus he has the perfect look!

~ I have never really liked Emily for Black Widow...
She does not cut it for me. There is something about her face, when it is not all made-up, that makes me angry haha!
I think she may be able to do it...But, I doubt it, to be honest.
My personal pick is the RUSSIAN actress, Elena Satine!



She is Russian, first off, she has the perfect look (Naturally red hair!!!!!!), she is sexy....And, look at her body...PERFECTION!
Just with some training, she would be great!

~ Wonderful Black Panther pick! No complaints!

~ Nice Namor pick!
I wouldn't mind it! I love @RoadDog's pick, Sam Witwer!



Inspiring!

~ I could see Luke as Quicksilver!
He has a great accent, body, and is a good actor...My only issue would be that he may be a little old compared to you Scarlet Witch pick!

~ Very interesting Scarlet Witch pick! I actually really like it!
Give her some auburn hair, she could be a perfect match!
Nice...Very VERY nice pick! I like it. She is SEXY!
She can handle the action....

Overall, very interesting, cool picks!
SOME are misses...But most are hits!
Great one!

Josh Holloway as Hawkeye is filled with so much win. I'll be posting my own cast soon.

And @tweeeeenkies, RoadDog's Namor puck is my Venom pick!
tweeeeenkies3 - 2/4/2012, 7:10 PM
@MrBlueSky...Very cool pick!
I like Sam Witwer! Great actor!
nowtheresaBATman - 2/4/2012, 7:28 PM
Yes tweeeeenkies3 Elana Satine for Black Widow for sure.

Armie's a great pic for Cap.I like your Namor, Black Panther, Vision & Quicksilver picks too.

Rose Byrne is a good Wasp but I still like Morena Baccarin better :)

Gamma022 - 2/4/2012, 7:30 PM
Big no for me on Namor and I'm not to sure about Peter Mensah as Black Panther, I think he is a bit to old.
cardiakid - 2/4/2012, 7:37 PM
Wow sweet cast! Hammer would make an awesome Cap! Brolin and Edgerton are both really good picks too! like most of these picks but i'm not sure about your Hank Pym pick. Only because i see Rudd as more of a comedic actor. That's really the only one though. I
myself picked Anthony Mackie for Black Panther, but i would have no complaints if Marvel chose Peter Mensah! Anyways it's a great cast!
Lewis25 - 2/4/2012, 8:04 PM
I like most of your cast.

Armie Hammer would be great as Cap.

Josh Brolin would be good as Iron Man but I prefer Ed Quinn.

I don't like Joel Edgerton as Thor I would cast Kevin McKidd.

Sam Rockwell is a great actor and would be perfect as puny Banner.

Rose Byrne as Wasp is great.

I love Paul Rudd but I think he might be a little too comedic for an Avengers movie.

I have never seen Holloway act so I don't know what he is like. I think Jensen Ackles would be a great choice for Hawkeye.

I have never seen Emily Blunt as Black Widow, I used to want Milla Jovovich or Uma Thurman but my new favorite choice for Black Widow is Asia Argento. She is in the first xXx with Vin Diesel and would be perfect as the sexy secret agent.

Damien Lewis would be perfect as Vision.

Peter Mensah would be awesome as Black Panther but he is too old so maybe he should play his father. I would cast Anthony Mackie or Edi Gathegi.

I don't see Momoa as Namor. I could see Sam Witwer but I still like Cole Hauser for the role.

- Armie would've been a nice original pick for Captain America. But Chris Evans impressed me enough, I'll give him a chance in The Avengers. Meanwhile, I hear Armie is of Russian decent, so consider him for Colossus if you do an X-Men cast.
- Josh Brolin does present himself as a larger-than-life character in some of his movies. His turn as Dan White in Milk is a great blueprint for Brolin to bring Tony Stark to life in case the current Iron Man universe comes to a close.
- Joel stands at 5'10". Not very imposing for the 6'6" God of Thunder. Maybe Joel could play Donald Blake if he shaves his 5:00 shadow.
- I could see Sam as Bruce Banner if he didn't play Justin Hammer.
- @ Lewis25
- Josh Holloway was in Lost and, most recently, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. However, Jensen Ackles is a secondary strong choice for Hawkeye if they want the comedic aspects.
- Uma Thurman is probably too old to play Black Widow. Asia Argento is also great choice, btw. She had that Russian accent in said movie.
- I've gotta get into these Damien Lewis shows, because he's been making a ferocious splash on the big screen. I don't know if he looks like the Vision.
- I don't know how old Peter Mensah is, so I can't be sure about him as Black Panther. But according to Lewis25, it wouldn't be more obvious.
- Glad to see some people appreciated my choice for Namor as of recent. First She-Hulk and Wolverine, now this guy! Jason Momoa might be good as well. BTW, I don't know if Namor is part of the Avengers, he might've just been a temporary member.
- The Maximoff twins couldn't have been better casted than this. Both Evans and Lucas looks like twins in real life, so thumbs up!

Hey, if you get time, be sure to check out my fancasts, because I haven't seen you leave comments.

- Blade the Vampire Slayer
- Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme
- X-Men
- Gears of War

Armie's a great choice. Brolin as well. Edgerton's far too small.
Rockwell and Byrne are perfect. Rudd's a dud and I personally despise Holloway for any role. Blunt and Lewis are great here.
There are better choices for Panther and Mamoa, although a dead ringer if there ever was, for Namor. I think a more capable actor is a better fit (thats going off only what ive heard ive never seen him act actually). A+ on the twins. Hit up a rogues gallery next
DDD - 2/5/2012, 1:17 AM
ARMIE'S nice but a little too tall for the 6'2"
(listed) CAP AMERICA. I cast him for PIOTR RASPUTIN
'cause he really fits COLOSSUS.

I cast BROLIN once as TONY but I think he has gotten
too old-looking for the role. ED QUINN seems to be
the consensus around here now and I believe he is
an excellent choice!

EDGERTON just does not fit THOR, any way, shape or
form.

ROCKWELL would be good for BANNER if he wasn't
already "JUSTIN HAMMER"! Geez!

ROSE BYRNE as WASP, nice.

PAUL RUDD as HANK PYM...ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????

JOSH HOLLOWAY is 42, too old for HAWKEYE and 3
AVENGERS movies.

EMILY as BLACK WIDOW...FANTASTIC! SCARLETT JOHANSSON
is just too short and is just wooden in the role.
She just plain does not fit in my humble opinion.
WORST CASTING in all of the AVENGERS movies.

DAMIEN LEWIS as VISION, not bad!

PETER MENSAH is cool but far too old for T'CHALLA.

MOMOA as NAMOR...please NO MO' MOMOA. Not such a
very good actor, unfortunately. He and the director
sunk CONAN, I mean killed him D-E-D DEAD!
lol

ISABEL LUCAS is gorgeous but way too skinny and
small-boobed to play WANDA.

Good QUICKSILVER.

Very good casting man!!!! It's the best Avengers cast i've seen man
TheRaven20 - 2/5/2012, 6:34 AM
Great fancast, except I really don't like Jason Momoa as Namor.
Facade - 2/5/2012, 6:53 AM
Great casting! Not sure of Thor, though.
WelcomeBackFrank - 2/5/2012, 8:39 AM
Very impressive cast. Could definitely see this as a reboot cast.
MrCameron - 2/5/2012, 9:44 AM
Yeah, Armie's a good pick for Cap. He's got that all - American look to him. Now, I don't have any issues with the height because it makes him more imposing, which I think helps with a character like Cap.

I like Josh Brolin for Tony. He played an alcholic playboy in W., so this role would be within his range. But personally, I perfer him as Wolverine, because he's 5'10, really well built, and has got the attitude. For Mr. Stark, I'm thinking Bradley Cooper, because he can play irresponsible (Limitless) and a playboy (The Hangover).

Joel Edgerton's too short for Thor at 5'11. You need someone more imposing, like Kevin McKidd.

Ehhh, Sam Rockwell's already Justin Hammer, so no. Plus, I don't really think he's a good fit for the character. How about Sharlto Copely?

Rose Byrne's already Moria McTaggert in the X-Men universe, so again, no (although she WOULD be great if she wasn't currently playing Moria).

As much as I like Paul Rudd, I'm not sure if he's a good fit for Hank. We'll, I'd give him a chance anyway.

Great pick for Hawkwye.

Again, great pick for Black Widow. Can't believe ScarJo got the role over her.

To be honest, I have no knowledge of vision, but I liked Damian Lewis in Band of Brothers, so I like this pick.

Peter Mensah's Apocalypse to me. He's in his 50s I think, so he's too old for Black Panther. Chiwetel Ejiofer (sp?) or Anthony Mackie are my picks.

Nice picks for Namor and Quicksilver.

I agree with DDD about Isabel Lucas.


Overall, good cast. Could use some work but still, nice job.
Wildaniel - 2/5/2012, 9:48 AM
Isabel Lucas as Wanda is AWESOME!!!
comicguru - 2/5/2012, 9:55 AM
ELENA SATINE as Black Widow for me. She might as well have leaped off the pages of the comic books. Real Russian, stunning, redhead, bangin body.
superbatspiderman - 2/5/2012, 10:11 AM
This cast is pure brilliance. YOu have my approval.
