A few weeks back, I wrote a post about who I’d want on the Avengers. Since then, Marvel has announced the actual rosters for two of the fifteen* new Avengers titles that are coming our way later this year. Personally, I think I’d still rather see my lineup. But, since that doesn’t seem likely to happen, the least I can do is make a movie in my brain with these characters. (We’re going to have to ignore a very old post wherein I already cast an Avengers movie. Hey, times change, deal with it.)
Ryan McPartlin as Captain America/Steve Rogers
Yeah…I’m still pulling for Chuck‘s Captain Awesome to play Captain America.
Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man/Tony Stark
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Sean Bean as Thor
Yeah…I know they’re making a Thor movie and they’ve already cast some guy–an actor? a football player? an underwear model? I dunno… The point is, Bean should play the Norse god of thunder.
Jensen Ackles as Hawkeye/Clint Barton
Admit it: Dean Winchester is pretty much just Hawkeye with a shotgun.
Anna Torv as Mockingbird/Bobbi Morse
Tricia Helfer as Ms. Marvel/Carol Danvers
Personally, I never really dug Helfer on BSG. But, as the nefarious Carla on Burn Notice? Now we’re talking. I’d like to see what she can do with Ms. Marvel.
Bridget Regan as Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew
Yeah…I dunno…just because.
Alexandra Daddario as Stature/Cassie Lang
I know, I know…she’s a brunette and Cassie is a blonde. Well, calm down, there’s this new shit called hair dye that can change the color of a person’s hair. Why her? Well, someone obviously thought she was plucky enough to play Annabeth in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, so I imagine she’s plucky enough to play Stature.
Anton Yelchin as Vision/Jonas
I like this kid. I thought he was great as Chekov in Star Trek and part of me feels he could really nail this younger version of Vision.
Katharine Isabelle as Firestar/Angelica Jones
I can’t figure out if Katharine Isabelle is irrationally despised or just criminally underrated. I’m not saying she hasn’t been in some questionable productions…but, she’s also been in some pretty good shit, too.
*: Or four. Are there four? I think there are four.
