2011-12 The roles we are waiting to see if they fail or shine

Here is some of the roles we are waiting to see. Will they end up great or will we just hate the end result.

Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Man 2012

The news of a Spider-Man reboot was quite a shock to most if not all.
Andrew is a great pick to play Spidey in my opinion also he is a real fan of the character so that is a plus and being an unknown helps but he has a very big burden on his shoulders to win over the fans of Raimi's movies. The movie will do very well at the box office because it is Spider-Man after all the name alone will bring in the money.

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman
The Dark Knight Rises 2012

This one I really don't know what to expect she was never someone I thought of for this role. Can she top Michelle's Catwoman not real sure about that one but Halle Berry's no problem.

Chris Evans as Captain America
Captain America:The First Avenger 2011

Chris is already a veteran of the genre but this is the biggest role of his career and has a lot to prove to his doubters. I remember there was quite a lot of negative response to him been cast mostly because of him playing The Human Torch. I think Chris is going to do a great job and his stint in the F4 will be nothing more than a distant memory.

Daniel Craig as Jake Lonergan
Cowboys and Aliens 2011

Well Daniel already proved his doubters wrong in Casino Royale that he is a worthy Bond. Daniel is a newcomer to the CBM genre but we already know he is a great actor and he should be great in this. I'm not sure how well this movie will do with the general public the title will throw some people off.

Chris Hemsworth as THOR
THOR 2011

Hemsworth is pretty much an unknown actor much like Christopher Reeve was when he was cast as Superman which really helped people see Superman and not the actor. Will this help Hemsworth maybe but from what I have seen he does look the part and seems to play it well.

Henry Cavill as Superman

I think this is great casting Henry is a fantastic actor and also an unknown to most which will help. There is quite a lot of fan backing for this choice and he has the right look for Superman but can he be this generation's man of steel cause there is a lot riding on this film and WB needs this to succeed.

Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull
Captain America:The First Avenger 2011

Perfect choice for Red Skull and I expect a perfect performance from Weaving this will be one of 2011's finest.

Jason Momoa as CONAN

I personally like this casting and think Jason will be awesome but I'm not sure how good the movie itself will be the director is not known for great movies. Maybe Marcus Nispel might surprise us and bring us a movie that will blow us all away or just make us wonder why they bothered.

Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye
The Avengers 2012

I have no doubts about Renner as Hawkeye I think he will do very well in this part.

Tom Hiddleston as LOKI
THOR 2011

It was strange to hear he was going for the part of THOR to start with couldn't really picture that but as LOKI no problem there. Tom will bring LOKI to life no doubt in my mind.

Michael Fassbender as Magneto
X-MEN First Class 2011

Michael is a star in the making in my opinion and is going to be great in this even if the movie sucks Michael won't.

Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner
The Avengers 2012

The man who replaced Ed Norton has very big shoes to fill I'm sure he will be good but can he convince us that Marvel made the right decision.

Ryan Reyolds as Hal Jordan

I wanted Bradley Cooper for Hal but Ryan won it in the end. Ryan is also a Veteran of the genre but this is the first time he will be the star of the movie I think he is a good choice but after the mixed reactions to the trailer some doubt if this will be any good. Ryan and Martin Campbell really need to deliver on this one.

Rhys Ifans as Curt Conners/The Lizard
The Amazing Spider-Man 2012

I'm glad that the lizard is going to be the villain but I have only seen Ifans in Little Nicky and that movie was not great. I don't really know what to expect from this one.

Tom Hardy as BANE
The Dark Knight Rises 2012

I'm pumped for this one Hardy is going to make an awesome BANE, everything I have seen Hardy in he was great no worries here.

James McAvoy as Charles Xavier
X-MEN First Class 2011

James is a good actor but is he good enough to play the younger version of Patrick Stewart's Xavier only time will tell.

Mark Strong as Sinestro

This one should turn out brilliant Mark is a great and very underrated actor and his Sinestro looks perfect.

What do you guys think?

pretty sure most of them will do fine, the movies how ever are a different question entirely.
luckylu - 3/15/2011, 10:04 AM
i think renner will do great as hawkeye but i think marvel is gonna butcher the character
marvel72 - 3/15/2011, 11:07 AM
i personally think the villains are gonna own their roles in 2011.

hugo weaving as red skull

tom hiddleston as loki

mark strong as sinestro (i know his not a villain,but he'll probably will be by the end of the film setting up the sequel.)
PaulRom - 3/15/2011, 12:27 PM
I think Anne Hathaway would rock as Catwoman. Should look awesome in the suit...:P
I had mixed feelings about Garfield's casting at first, but now I'm used to it.
Never saw Hardy as Bane but I trust Nolan.
The rest should do fine, except idk if Ruffalo can top Norton as the Hulk.
LP4 - 3/15/2011, 2:25 PM
Henry Cavill is my favorite and the main one I"m backing on this list. I'm sure he'll be great because replacing Routh is EASY. lol.

It's Mark Ruffalo I'm worried about...it's not very easy to replace an actor of Ed Norton's caliber.

But I'm mainly pulling for Cavill to outshine the rest.

dam Anne Hathaway is hot!!!
and she has terrible taste in men
shes perfect
golden123 - 3/15/2011, 4:01 PM
What? Your not looking forward to Mark Strong's Sinestro performance?
Exiles - 3/15/2011, 4:29 PM
@havoc9987 check out notting hill and hannibal rising shows how great of an actor ifans is. @darkmatter trust me garfields a amazing he was great in the social network but thats not his best performance. His best performance is in Boy A one heck of a film any one who has doubts over his acting ability needs to check out that film and red riding.
BigK1337 - 3/15/2011, 6:30 PM
The performance I am honestly worried about is Renner. He is a good actor, but I am not sure if his portrayal of Hawkeye will be that of the good one (616, A:EMH, Marvel Animated Universe, the one that is cocky, hotheaded and wears purple) or the bad one (pretty much the dull, Ultimate version who's only redeemming factor was the costume in Ultimates 3 and onward).
tehdude - 3/15/2011, 8:37 PM
@Darkmatter- no no no! i disagree with you (and i generally don't). though he's a great actor i wish they would've chosen someone much more goofy and nerdy looking than him... and i hope they don't put him in skinny jeans every time he's peter parker... and i still dislike the costume... and you better not anticipate it more than the Avengers! ... traitor! :P
tehdude - 3/15/2011, 9:42 PM
@Darkmatter- lol i'm looking forward to it too but i've still got the complaints about it. much rather it be at marvel. And again the skinny jeans... *shudder*. I've only been out of High school for a few years so maybe nerds have decided to become a little trendy but... i doubt it. And again, andrew garfield is great, but he's not my ideal choice for parker. I wouldve preffered a much skrawnier and nerdier looking actor. and the suit... gah! though i'll still catch the flick and probably enjoy it it's just... meh.
