Ever the more important they get someone who can convey emotion really well. They'll have to do it silently, through grit teeth, conveying emotion without it on their sleeve. They have to reach the audience while hiding it from the other characters. That is a growing trait and definitely the biggest tool in the utility belt of some of the best actors working (Fassbender, Shannon, Gosling, etc).

Hmmm, i like him looks wise but ive seen his acting and im not sold on him either. He's better then VD though. I really cant think of anyone off the top of my head for BB. Maybe Eric Bana.

Ya know, I was fine with the idea of Diesel as Black Bolt just based on appearances when that was all I knew, but now that I've actually READ some Inhumans comics, I don't like it at all. As others have pointed out, Vin's strongest asset is his voice. Without it, I don't think he has the kind of presence or depth of expression needed for this role.

Black Bolt shouldn't be played by a beefcake kind of actor like Vin or Manganiello, imo. This role needs someone who excels more at silent expression - someone who more typically plays really intelligent, sensitive characters, because those are the ones who usually show more going on behind the eyes, like you can see the wheels turning when they're not saying a thing. I like the Eric Bana suggestion above. I also find Edgar Ramirez is quite good at this as well, though I doubt he's a big enough name for it. The Tom Hardys and Michael Fassbenders of the world are generally amazing at this type of acting, but they seem to be quite tied up in other things for the foreseeable future. Still, someone closer to that ilk should be what they aim for with this character, imo, rather the big, musclebound action guys.

Blackbolt is all about presence and what is going on behind the eyes.

Eric Bana isn't a bad idea.

You can see a little Black Bolt in his role as Nero.

great post! Ive been trying to come up with someone who's not the usual fan suggestions like Fassbender or Hardy, two guys it seems that are suggested for every comic character. I like the guys but they are way over rated here. I'm been giving it a lot of thought and Bana would be great, the only problem i can see Marvel having is his age, even though he's mid 40's which isn't a problem for me but for potential sequels the studio may feel otherwise but in his favor he is a male actor and entertainment industry is more easier on men then women. Also if people are rooting for Diesel, who's also mid 40's then Bana should be fine, no he's better then fine. Him as BB and Chastain as Medusa would be great. These are also roles where it shouldnt be an issue casting older then 20's and early 30s. They are both after all the leaders of the Inhuman society.

Edgar Ramirez as someone suggested is good too, and him being hispanic brings in divirsity. Their are no hispanic heroes that i can think of off the top of my head, certainly not any that are relevant and popular.

I made the same suggestion in my casting call I made a while back. I really love the idea of Gyllenhaal as Black Bolt, and it's growing on me to the point that I might be a bit disappointed if he ends up not getting the role!

Gyllenhaal definitely has the expressive eyes for it.

Do we really need any kind of "name" for Blackbot given the character can't even talk?

He needs to be able to emote without his voice, which in many ways makes him incredibly difficult to play. A 'name' actor isn't neccesary, but a great one is...

It's made me change my view on Vin entirely. He's an ok actor, but wrong for this part. He could always play another Inhuman instead

Like the idea personally, but he might be a little too old and a bit short.

What about Armie Hammer or Josh Hartnett?

Not keen on Hammer but I like Hartnett better but im not sure he can emote with his eyes well. He's a decent actor but not a good one. I would've liked to see Hartnett for Batman as a replacement for Bale but Its too late. I wouldn't be against him as Blackbolt though.

Gyllenhaal would be pretty good. He's a talented actor and as someone mentioned he can express well with his eyes.

People are stating basically that Vin can't act, you watch he's movies, yes not all the movies are great but Vin's performances have always been good, he's portrayals of Riddick in every film have been good (you may not like the films but Vin's performances were good), he can express emotion very well without speaking.

Everyone also have to remember that Black bolt is a superhero, the actor who plays him needs to be able to meet the physical requirements as well. It is no good having a tall thin actor when Black Bolt is anything but.

Tom Hardy turned it down because he is busy with another movie, so it will be difficult as he has a packed schedule but I would not mind him as Black Bolt.

Think Hardy would be a bit wasted as Blackbolt. You're not going to see much of his face and he's going to have very limited dialogue. (most probably).
