Default Re: Cast the Marvel Universe - Part 2

You obviously don't get what I'm trying to say here. I'm fine with well known actors being cast in cbm roles. And I'm also fine with typecast actors being in cbm roles. I just don't like when it's both, which none of the actors you named were except SLJ, and maybe Liam Neeson and RDJ. I don't want to be watching a new FF movie thinking "Yeah yeah, I've seen this villain before." I want my Dr. Doom to look and sound distinct.

My two favorite comic book movie villains display exactly what I'm talking about. Heath Ledger was a very well known actor before the Joker, but he hadn't previously played roles that resembled the Joker before to the point where you could hardly even recognize him. He was well known, but not typecast. Tom Hiddleston on the other hand has constantly been cast as the elegant, intellegent thespian, but the fact I've never even seen any of the movies where he played that character helped me see him only as Loki. He was typecast, but not well known. Don't get me wrong, there are times when it's okay to have both. Sam Jackson is a perfect example since Nick Fury is supposed to be this larger than life character and Sam Jackson was the ONLY choice.

You chose a bad example and it doesn't exactly put a dent in my argument because there are plenty of GOOD examples like Chris Hemsworth, Hayley Atwell, Hugh Jackman, Alfred Molina...

Anyway, the main point I was trying to make is that I'm sure Mark Strong would do a good job as Doom, but there's gotta be plenty of other actors out there that could give us a waaay more distinct take on the character.

"I knew there was something wrong. It just took a while to dawn on me, or maybe I was just afraid to think it, but... you survived the destruction because you caused it. Raina wasn't the only one changed in there, and I'm pretty sure the DNA results that I'm running right now will confirm that there's nothing wrong with the data in my head Skye. There's something wrong with you." - Leo Fitz
