NYX Fan Cast

My Take on a 20th Century Fox Adaptation of the Marvel Comic Book

Follow Robert:
By Robert Garlen - 3/30/2012


20TH CENTURY FOX
NYX
The series features homeless teenage mutants in New York City: time-freezing Kiden, shape-shifting Tatiana, body-shifting Bobby, his mysterious brother Lil Bro, the female-Wolverine X-23 and Cameron, a woman with no powers.


Kiden Nixon [Height: 5’3”, Age: Late Teens]: Mutant with the ability to slow down time/speed up her personal time line. Also sometimes thought to have precognitive abilities because Felon's "lil bro" used his abilities of projection to manipulate her during the story.

Dakota Fanning [Height: 5’4”, Age: 17] (War of the Worlds, Man on Fire): Just a perfect choice she’s the appropriate age, has the talent and the looks to play such a character an intriguing character while getting her an appropriate Comic Book role.



Catiana (Tatiana Caban) [Height: 5’3”, Age: Late Teen’s]: Mutant with the ability to shapeshift into any animal whose blood she touches.

Kaya Scodelario [Height: 5’6”, Age: 20] (Moon, Clash of the Titans): A great choice she is a natural chameleon. She is an versatile actress who just acts with an animlaity in her movements that is what would add to Catiana.



Cameron Palmer [Height: 5’7”, Age: 20’s]: Kiden Nixon's former teacher. When she attempted suicide, Kiden saved her and roped her into the X-23 situation.

Emily Browining [Height: 5’2”, Age: 24] (Sucker Punch, Sleeping Beauty): An odd choice but I wanted to take a new spin with the character making the character a younger teacher to help her identify with the rest. Browning is what I want to see in Cameron mixed with something new and unique a great choice.



Bobby Soul - Mutant with the ability to project his consciousness into other individuals and take control of their body. A side effect is that he suffers from varying degrees of amnesia after returning to his own body. He is also known as Felon.

Donald Glover [Height: 5’10, Age: 28] (Community, Mystery Team): He was a popular choice for Peter Parker in Spider-Man but had lost it to a more appropriate actor. But this kid is not without talent, the community co-star has worked hard and has won the hearts of the series’ viewers. By far he is probably the absolute best choice for the role of Bobby Soul.



Lil' Bro - Bobby Soul's mute, autistic little brother. He is shown to have unknown psionic abilities that is somehow connected to Kiden seeing the ghost of her dead father.

Jaden Smith [Height: 5’1”, Age: 14] (Pursuit of Happieness, The Day the Earth Stood Still): An amazing young actor who is rising among Hollywood’s best actors. This kid has talent and is absolutely perfect for the role.



X-23 - Mutant with adamantium claws and regenerative healing factor. She works as a prostitute who specializes in cutting masochistic patrons. She rarely speaks and is known to engage in self-abuse (specifically, cutting).

Hailee Stienfeld [Height: 5’7”, Age: 15] (True Grit, Sons of Tucson): my number one choice, she’s a decent actress when under the right director and could really be convinced to bring something to the role and show what talent she has.



Zebra Daddy [Height: 5’9”, Age: 20’s-30’s {estimated}]: X-23's pimp. He claimed to love her more than any of his 'merchandise', but he doesn't even know her name and ultimately views her as disposable property.

Arturo Fernandez [Height: 5’8”, Age: 35{Age and Height are estimated, exact numbers could not be found}] (Burn Notice, The Cookout 2): He is just perfect an actor with the style and glamor as Zebra Daddy, a perfect actor for the character doesn’t come anywhere else but from Arturo, regardless of what he is seen as Arturo is the best choice for Zebra Daddy.



Hector Morales - Kiden's school enemy, who repeatedly attacked her - yet always failed to make an impact - and even tried to kill her but missed. He is now in prison.

Anthony Guajardo [Height: 5’8”, Age: Late Teens-Early 20’s {estimated}] {The Walking Dead, Sharkboy and Lavagirl): the kid was in an episode of the walking dead, but outside that he’s actually a well-trained actor who’s image has a haunting resemblance to the character.

This cast is amazing!
I am so happy to see someone do an NYX cast! It is an amazing series!

-Dakota is a perfect choice for Kiden!
She has the attitude, look, and acting skills! Since she has never been casted before, it is original, which you know I love!
Dakota has even done Superhero related things, such as Push, making her even better!

- I am an avid fan of Kaya's, so I agree with her as Catiana! She has a very animalistic look, very feline-esque, which plays well with such this character...Her fierce eyes, elegant body, and natural beauty...She works just fine! Perfect casting!

- Emily for Palmer is inspiring! You say it is an odd choice...I disagree! I is a great, picture perfect match!
Emily fits your take...Young, beautiful, and smart...I can't say one negative thing, bud!

- Donald Glover is a great younger actor, who I believe could pull off this character!
I would go with someone a little more...rough, I guess?
I am working on an X-23 casting, and the NYX crew will show up, so I am working on finding someone for him!

- Jaden Smith is a good choice! I think now that he is little older and more experienced, it would work very well!

- GAHHHHH! Thank GOD, a NEW AND ORIGINAL choice for X-23! I was so tired of seeing Summer Glau...over and over again!
Hailee is a wonderful choice! I think her youthful, dark sex appeal works well for a character who is a teenager, but also a forced prostitute.
Hailee is a great young star, who is by far one of the best actresses around! I love it!

- Arturo is the only one I am iffy on...He doesn't seem to look the part, but I am not sure...I have never seen him act, so I can't judge.

- Anthony is a wonderful choice as well! I loved him in the Walking Dead...Someone unknown works well for this character!

Overall, wonderful cast!
I can't complain at all!

This is a really good cast Garlen :)

Nice cast, man!! I've never read this comic unfortunately (I'm more of a DC man myself). I'll have a Punisher cast up by tomorrow. In the meantime, check out my Justice League Europe cast. Anyway, what are you working on next?
BobGarlen - 3/30/2012, 7:59 PM
@Mr.BlueSky a Marvel Studios X-Men Anthology reboot series, covering many films then a Justice League fan cast. I am glad you like the cast

@ TheManOfSteelReturns

You're doing another X-Men fancast? Well, I'm definitely sticking around for that one. The last one was good, but I'd love to see what you do for the revamp.

Oh, and I love this cast, even though I'm not familiar with the NYX comics.
BobGarlen - 3/30/2012, 8:23 PM
@RoadDogXXIV I think you're gonna enjoy my revamp a lot of new faces in there as well as some familiar ones, but I have a feeling you'll like my new Ice-Man and Cyclops, and Magneto lol
MrBlueSky - 3/30/2012, 9:38 PM
@TheManOfSteelReturns I'd like to see you make cast for Grant Morrison's Seven Soldiers. I'll even give you two free casting picks:

Mila Kunis as Zatanna Zatara

Daniel Radcliffe as Klarion the Witchboy

What do you think?
BobGarlen - 3/30/2012, 10:41 PM
@Mr.BlueSky if I shall ever get a chance to read it I'll do so and take notes and do a fan cast on them. I've heard very good things about the book

btw those are some excellent Cast Picks.

Why does she have to be 15.......why Hailee, WHY!

Whoa!! the series looks very interesting. I've never seen it. It looks ready for a movie. The cast looks awesome. I think Dakota is one the best of her generation by far and Steinfeld won me over huge in Grit so that would make for a fantastic cast. Smith is another great actor even if he may have haters. The role of a mute, autistic would be a fantastic way to prove his talent, ala DiCaprio's Gilbert Grape character.

Never read the NYX, but this looks very good.
Lisacdj29 - 4/4/2012, 7:05 AM

TheDeadnecks - 4/4/2012, 2:16 PM
GREAT CAST!!! We would be THRILLED to see Anthony Guajardo as Hector Morales! Anthony is an amazing actor with a fantastic personality! ALL DIGITS CROSSED FOR ANTHONY!!!
jterzieff - 4/4/2012, 3:12 PM
That's a kicking cast line-up!
Fanning rocks, and Guajardo would be great as Hector!!!
KaraThrasher - 4/4/2012, 3:57 PM
