Tom hardy is black bolt. Tommy Wiseau is Maximus the Mad.

Give this man a job Disney. But don’t bring back the Inhumans.

Preferrably one that blows.

Those are all horrible, horrible casting choices… u_u

Also, there’s no way Hardy would take that role… he loves too much doing his silly voices…

If they ever re-use the Inhumans at some point soon-ish, I’d really like them to re-hire some of those actors… Black Bolt, Maximus and Karnak… the rest can fuck off…

I’ll watch Keanu in any and every role he’d play at this point. Wolverine too.

Bring it.

I don’t know. I’ve never pictured Gambit as a guy who might be the founder of a tech startup. :wink:

Doctor Doom is an incredibly hard decision.
Between the studio, story, director and actor is the discussion about the mask.
It’s part of the character, but who wants play that part?

The Spider-Man movies did a good job of the face coming through.
Karl Urban in Judge Dredd (2012) did awesome behind a mask and gets full props from me.

Lets say they start with a version of Secret Wars (1984-85)
I seem to remember when Doom got the Beyonder’s powers they saw through Dooms benevolence/omniscience when they realized “the first thing he did was heal the scars to his face.”
They need a good/great actor, a “good face”, but then Doom shouldn’t have a lot of ‘human face’ time.
Who wants that job?
Casting starts off on the wrong foot.


Actually, since I searched up Secret Wars I am now convinced thats the best way to bring everyone in.
Can’t do that many, but pick characters.

Prof. X
Wolverine
Jean Grey
Deadpool
Magneto

Mr. Fantastic
Mrs. Fantastic
Human Torch

She-Hulk
Spider-woman

1 male ‘Avenger’
1 female ‘Avenger’

That’s already 12 characters (7 male, 5 female, so it has to be female versions of Hulk and Spider-man).
And that’s just one side. Doom and another 11 villains.

If the Russo’s are up then let them at it.

Yeah I’m sure no one wants to be part of the MCU at this point… :smile:

Also, nah as much as I like Keanu… he’s too old now for a new Wolverine… and also he’s waaaaaay too chill for that kind of role.

He was able to show a lot of chin and mouth action though. That doesn’t go for Doom.

Hey, remember when Raimi decided he needed to show Willem Dafoe’s eyes?

My somewhat obvious choice for Doom would be Michael Fassbender. It’d be typecasting after playing Magneto for so long, but if Evans could play Johnny Storm and Steve Rogers, I’m fine with it.

My go-to casting for the FF would be:

Reed Richards - John Krasinski
Sue Storm - Emily Blunt
Ben Grimm - Bryan Tyree Henry
Johnny Storm - Zac Efron
Dr. Doom - Michael Fassbender
