CSI has had the likes the Lawrence Fishburne before, while Law & Order Criminal Intent had Vincent D'Onofrio.
I agree, and it's also why i think we will have much smaller character names. This show takes place in the Avengers Universe... so this should be synonymous in feel and existence. No recasts.
Ideally the show would be a gateway for lesser known characters to eventually get films... which might mean an episode featuring a hero they hope to spawn into something else...
so let's say for people like Ms Marvel, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage they'd cast actors who are versatile enough to be on both TV and FILM.
it's much easier to get a tv actor playing a very minor role, to be present on film than it is for a big name actor to do Film. though, it'd be nice to have a cameo or two eventually (also great for sweeps)
