After casting a couple of the roles for my Uncanny Avengers cast I started thinking about who else I would cast and what story I would want told for an X-Men film.
The main X-men team would be the line up from the old animated series.
It will have Mutants, Purifiers and Sentinels, and would have the classic iconic costumes.
It would differ from the previous films by not having the X-men face off against Mutants but go against The Purifiers; the story line would be more along the lines of two different species fighting for survival, rather than mutants vs. mutants.
Cyclops - Armie Hammer

After appearing on television and playing Billy Graham in 2008's Billy: The Early Years, he became known for his portrayal of the Winklevoss twins in the 2010 film The Social Network, Clyde Tolson in J. Edgar (2011), and Prince Andrew Alcott in Tarsem Singh's Mirror Mirror (2012). He will play the title character in the 2013 film Lone Ranger.
His going to be great as the Lone ranger and I've seen him in a few different roles now and think he will do a great job as Scott Summers.
Wolverine - Jon Bernthal
Jon Bernthal is an American actor, best known for his role as Shane Walsh on the AMC television series The Walking Dead.
The easiest choice I made for the cast he was amazing in Walking dead and he would be a great alternative to Hugh Jackman as the Savage Wolverine.
Rogue - Lyndsy Fonseca
Lyndsy Fonseca is an American actress known for playing Colleen Carlton on the CBS daytime soap opera The Young and The Restless, Dylan Mayfair on the ABC series Desperate Housewives, and Ted Mosby's future daughter on How I Met Your Mother. She also played Katie Deauxma in the 2010 superhero film Kick-Ass
She's doing a great job showing she can do the action role in Nikita and I would love to see her step up to the big leagues as it were.
Storm - Marsha Thomason
Marsha Thomason is an English actress who is known in the United States for playing Nessa Holt in the first two seasons of the NBC series Las Vegas, for her recurring role on ABC's Lost as Naomi Dorrit, and for playing FBI agent Diana Berrigan on USA Network's White Collar.
She was great in Las Vegas and from what I've seen of her in White Collar she's only getting better.
Beast - Philip Seymour Hoffman
Philip Seymour Hoffman is an American actor and director. Hoffman began acting in television in 1991, and the following year started to appear in films. He gradually gained recognition for his supporting work in a series of notable films, including Scent of a Woman (1992), Twister (1996), Boogie Nights (1997), Titanic (1997), The Big Lebowski (1998), Magnolia (1999), The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), Almost Famous (2000), 25th Hour (2002), Cold Mountain (2003), Along Came Polly (2004), and Mission: Impossible III (2006).
I wanted the actor who plays Beast to be able to act through the makeup and wanted an actor I knew could do the part justice
Gambit - Alexander Skarsgård
Alexander Skarsgård is a Swedish actor. He is best known for his roles as vampire Eric Northman on the HBO series True Blood, Meekus in Zoolander and Brad Colbert in the HBO miniseries Generation Kill.
His great in True Blood and yet again he stood out during Straw Dogs, he also has the charm and charisma to play of Gambit.
Jubilee - Sophie Wu

Seen her in a few things now and she's cute she's funny and she's a very under-rated actress.
Jean Grey - Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks is an American actress. Banks made her film debut in the low-budget independent film Surrender Dorothy. She is best known for her roles in the films Seabiscuit, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Invincible, Definitely, Maybe, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, W., Role Models, Wet Hot American Summer, The Uninvited, The Hunger Games, People Like Us, and Pitch Perfect.
True her hair will have to be dyed; however I wanted to have someone play Jean who could be the woman next door but also someone who's smart and graceful which she is.
Professor X - Ralph Fiennes
Ralph Fiennes is an English theatre and film actor. A noted Shakespeare interpreter, he first achieved success onstage in the Royal National Theatre.

He is also well known for playing Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter film series. Fiennes also has a role in the James Bond film Skyfall.
Professor X needed to be played by a person with great screen presence and his perfect.
Leper Queen - Daryl Hannah
Daryl Hannah is an American film actress. She is best known for her performances in the films Splash, Blade Runner, Roxanne, Wall Street, Steel Magnolias, and Kill Bill.
I wanted the Leper Queen to be played by someone who can play the role from a darker but more realistic place and she will be perfect.
William Stryker - James Masters
James Marsters is an American actor and musician. Marsters first came to the attention of the general public playing the popular character Spike, a platinum-blond yobbish English vampire in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off series, Angel, from 1997 to 2004.

He is charming, funny and has an intensity that would come across well for the leader of the Purifiers.
