How about someone from a different version of Sherlock? How about Jonny Lee Miller as Maximus?

Is Iwan Rheon good enough for this role?

They'd be obligated to shoot a scene of him eating a sausage.

Would a big name like Leo Di Caprio work as Maximus?

I don't see DiCaprio being interested in the role honestly or suddenly joining a Marvel Studios movie anytime soon. And while he's a great actor, I don't think Maximus would be the right for him if he ever played in a comic book movie. Maximus should be the reject, a madman and a freak. Even when DiCaprio plays crazy people like Calvin Candie and Jordan Belfort, there's always a certain amount of smoothness to them which I don't think Maximus should have.

Agreed. Michael Pitt is a very good actor.

Pitt was good in Murder by Numbers and Funny Games as well.

I don't really see Gyllenhaal for the role either even though, he like Leonardo is a great actor, I don't think it'd necessarily be the right role for him.

I wonder if Marvel will look back at some of the auditions from their other films. They tested like every white male actor in Hollywood for Star-Lord. Out of those candidates, I wouldn't mind Jim Sturgess or Jack Huston as Maximus.

Yeah, he grew on me a bit as the show went on, but in my opinion, he's the weakest thing about Sherlock. Cumberbatch and Freeman are the BEST Sherlock and Watson I've ever seen, Lara Pulver is the best Irene Adler, Mikkelsen was brilliant as Magnussen... but Scott just comes off like a poor man's Joker.

Ooohhh yes. Jake would be great for this. He needs to star in a superhero film. I hope that previously losing out on big roles and the whole Prince of Persia experience haven't turned him off from genre stuff.

I'd like to see Hugh Dancy as Maximus.

I have a new candidate for the casting of Maximus, Dan Stevens from The Guest.

Yes, me included. Though he might be wary of the extreme lengths required to go after American roles...

Whoever they get to play Maximus I really hope he gets a scene with Tom hiddlestons loki because that would be epic
Who would be a lower Inhumans villain? What major villains do the Inhumans have beside Maximus?

Not really a great selection, but they could always go more space. Maybe some Skrulls. It seems some recent villains are decent but are born out of Inhumanity and might fit better on Agents of SHIELD than in Attilan.

It would be awesome if Ronan could show up as a bad guy in an Inhumans movie. I really hope they bring that character back.

How about David Tennant, he can certainly do mad....and has shown a good range of acting abilities in some of he's TV stuff.

Yeah, that was my suggestion. He looks like the guy in the first picture.

Some great choice's here. I was going to throw a curve ball and suggest Andrew Garfield. Because of the rumors about him getting fired by Sony, I started brainstorming potential characters he could play in the MCU. Obvious long shot, but he definitely has some Maximus quirks in him.

Great choice. Been a fan since Skins, and he's even better in GoT.
