So I've been at this for a while, and I need help with the finishing touches. I've casted actors to portray a lot of characters (mostly heroes) in the Marvel Universe. I'll list them off, and you tell me what I should change, and help me finish it off. Ready? Go.

Avengers

Fantastic Four

Marvel Knights

X-Men

Captain America Characters/Villains

Iron Man Characters/Villains

Thor Characters/Villains

Hulk Characters/Villains

Avengers Characters/Villains

FF Characters/Villains

  • Dr. Doom- Mark Strong
  • Super Skrull- Dominic Purcell
  • Paibok-
  • Galactus-
  • Wizard-
  • Trapster-
  • Hydro Man-
  • Titania-
  • Diablo-
  • Mad Thinker-
  • Franklin Richards-
  • Valeria Richards-
  • Black Bolt-
  • Medusa-
  • Crystal-
  • Karnak-
  • Gorgon-
  • Triton-
  • Maximus the Mad-

Marvel Knights Characters/Villains

Spider-Man CharactersVillains

X-Men Characters/Villains

Cosmic Characters

Other

Please help me finish! If you have a character and actor for that character not on this list or if you have a better suggestion than any match I put up, I'll be glad to edit the list.

This is a fan cast, meaning this is casting made by fans. For example, I'm aware that Jeremy Renner is already Hawkeye in the movie, but I, as a fan, feel that a different actor is better suited for that role.

Check out the DC one!

Cable - Stephen Lang

Thanos - Damion Poitier

Enchantress - Sienna Miller

Mandarin - Ben Kingsley

Elektra - Rhona Mitra

@CaioTrubat: Thanks for the additions! I was actually thinking about casting Lang for Cable, but I wasn't sure if he was too old. I like all the names, but I was hoping to get an Asian to play Mandarin (even though I know he'll do great), but I'll keep Kingsley on for now.

i find alot of the idea funny, like the hawkeye one, but overall great

can you put the picture of the actors next to the characters please ?

#5 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

@tuananhxu99001: If you have better suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Personally, I think Sean William Scott has the build, look, and comedic talent to make Hawkeye work better than Renner.

Pictures... I thought about that, but that's a lot of pictures <.<

What about links to their wikipedia pages?

^ He looks kinda old. Who is he?

#11 Posted by danhimself (22218 posts) - - Show Bio

@Gambit1024: Tom Selleck....I always thought of Dr. Strange as kind of old as well though

#12 Posted by Guardiandevil83 (5218 posts) - - Show Bio

Lucy Liu: Tyger Tyger

Taskmaster: Scott Adkins

Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds

Denzel Washington: Robert ''Robbie" Robinson. I can see him as the cool sage when Peter can't get to Aunt May for advice. And his banter with Jameson would be awesome.

Idris Elba: Black Panther

Taraji P. Henson: Misty Knight.

Columbus Short: Prowler.

Micheal Jae White: Luke Cage.

Taylor Kitsch: Gambit

I'd rather have a lot more unknown actors. I'd try to name some but... unknown is unknown. Also, I'd rather have actors that have the same nationality as their characters. For instance, an African actor for Black Panther or a cajun (or maybe.. maybe even french) actor for Gambit.

No problem It's kinda fun. Also my dream is to write screen plays and comics.

Ian Somerholder as Namor is really inspired casting. That's a great choice.

#21 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

^ Thanks! It was between him and Brandon Routh

#22 Posted by Bigwalt (59 posts) - - Show Bio

@Bigwalt: Good call. Forgot about the Guardians of the Galaxy

#24 Edited by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Still need some more contributions! :D

JUDGEMENT CALL:

Does this man, Scott Porter, look more like Havok or Nova to you?

#25 Posted by SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26 (5732 posts) - - Show Bio

Daredevil: Elijah Wood (Don't freak out, I will explain later eventually), Jennifer Walters: Kelly Hu, Venom: Jensen Ackles Dr Doom: Ralph Fiennes Bullseye: John Leguizamo Moon Knight: Adrien Brody

Shameless bump

#27 Edited by tomguttridge (14 posts) - - Show Bio

Apologies about the bump but possibly Liam Neeson or Adrien Brody for Doctor Strange?

Two completely different actors but either could work..

EDIT: Also, how about Denzel Washington as Black Panther?

I know all three of these actors have already been allocated characters but I just thought these as slightly more apt..

#28 Posted by tomguttridge (14 posts) - - Show Bio

Sorry, me again.. For anyone who's watched The Mentalist, I'm sure you could all envisage Simon Baker as Dardevil!

#29 Posted by umbrafeline (5300 posts) - - Show Bio

bruno is the thing? really?

as for kitty pryde, how about julie gonzalo from the new dallas tv show?

but i like this casting

#30 Posted by Loki9876 (2992 posts) - - Show Bio

I think you should have more roles like surtur and baron zemo

#31 Posted by tomguttridge (14 posts) - - Show Bio

@Loki9876: Yeahh I agree, but it's slightly more difficult to think of characters for them don't you think?

#32 Posted by Veshark (9057 posts) - - Show Bio

Gemma Arterton for Gamora

Donnie Yen (Ip Man) as Shang Chi

And a bald Judi Dench for Cassandra Nova.

#33 Posted by dtm1980 (239 posts) - - Show Bio

You probably wont want to change any but I always thought Kurt Russell would be a great white Nick Fury (Snake Plissken look I guess) and Gerard Butler would make a great Frank Castle/Punisher. Stevenson is just so much better at playing Volstagg but also:

Damian Lewis - Norman Osborn

Ron Perlman - Thaddeus Ross/Red Hulk

Dwayne Johnson - Barracuda

Oleg Taktarov - Red Guardian

#34 Posted by SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26 (5732 posts) - - Show Bio

@Gambit1024:

I REALLY hate Bamber as Daredevil. I'm gonna go Michael C. Hall for Daredevil/Matt Murdock. Also don't really like Chris Carmack as Venom. I'm really love Jensen Ackles as Eddie. I really want Olivia Wilde as Typhoid Mary, that would be fun. Jake Gyllenhall as Spidey, Karl Urban as Moon Knight, Charlie Hunnam as Ghost Rider Mark Strong as Dr Doom, James GanDolfini as Kingpin and Englund as Vulture are all AWESOME picks!

#35 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

The list has been updated-

@Loki9876: All smaller roles I can think of are now up and vacant. If anyone has any castings for those, I'm all ears.

@Veshark: Absolutely adore your choices for Shang Chi and Cassandra Nova. Updated.

@dtm1980: Ron Perlman is genius casting for Red Hulk/Thunderbolt Ross. Updated.

@SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26: I wasn't digging Bamber either, to tell you the truth. Updated. Would've casted Jenson for Venom, but I already have him as Cyclops.

wow. you have some character who are already cast and some actors who are already cast too. not to mention

Jake Gyllenhaall as Spider-man??? WHAT THE HECK

It's a fancast. For example, I know Renner is Hawkeye, but I think someone else is better suited for that role. *shrug*

What's wrong with my Spider-Man pick?

#38 Posted by judasnixon (6103 posts) - - Show Bio

Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) as Kate Bishop

#39 Posted by judasnixon (6103 posts) - - Show Bio

Kristen Schaal (30 Rock, Bob's Burgers) as Squirrel Girl.....

#40 Posted by Veshark (9057 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks, glad you liked them! But no love for Gemma Arterton, though?

Here are a few more suggestions:

August Diehl as Baron (Helmut) Zemo. Fantastic, menacing villain and I think he has the voice too.

Eric Kocher as Crossbones. Not only does he look the part, but he also happens to be a former Recon Marine.

James Ransone as Toad. Looks the part, acts the part.

Kate Upton as Black Cat. I know I'm gonna catch flak for this one. Yeah, her acting ability is in doubt, but you can't deny that she kind of looks like the role.

Patton Oswalt (Justifed, Ratatouille) as Foggy Nelson......

#45 Posted by Sharkbite (291 posts) - - Show Bio

I like Michael Madsen for Baron Zemo. Particularly since the face is almost always masked, and he has such a distinctive voice. It's low and gravelly, harsh, but almost just a touch tragic. Perfect for the original Thunderbolt leader.

Ian Somerhelder as Namor? You are the worst.

Quinto Vision sounds dreadful. Why would you ever put Quinto in a role where he can't show off his Texas-sized eyebrows?

@Mycroftian: If it was up to me Zachary Quinto would play Machine Man.....
