Default GOTG2 Casting Thread

So who are everyone's casting choices for characters that may appear in GOTG2? A few of mine:

Adam Warlock/The Magus- Jude Law
Mantis- Olivia Wilde
Bug- Sharlto Copley

Summer Glau - Death
She'd be fantastic!

When did Mantis become white? This is a perfect chance for Marvel to mix up the ethnicity a bit in the MCU.

I like the suggestion of Jamie Chung that I have seen before.

Um what? Was that really necessary? When did she become any other race? She's green from what I've seen. She could be played by anyone. Although a green Olivia Wilde would be awesome.

Really? I've read almost everything cosmic and I never knew or possibly forgot that Mantis was from Earth. *questions sanity* But yea, that makes sense... I always thought she was drawn with East Asian features. An Asian actress for Mantis would be a no brainer though.

I think any new character from the Marvel universe could work in this film.

Beta Ray Bill: Vinge Rhames
Angela: Olivia Wilde

I'd like to see Steve Buscemi and John Goodman get in there to voice some CGI characters

Now Olivia Wilde as Angela would be great.

How about Kevin Bacon for Star Lords daddy, Starfox?

I think that would be beyond clever. They could even add in Peter doing a little double take, like "don't I know you?".

Afterall, Kevin Bacon is "a legiondary hero who saved the people who had sticks up their butts"!

Kevin Bacon as Quill's Father would be outstanding LOL.

I think Eva Green should 100% play Lady Death. Her role on Penny Dreadful shows that she undoubtedly has the range for the role, and she has loads of chemistry with Brolin in Sin City: ADTKF so it should be a no-brainer imo.

Adam Warlock/Magus' a bit harder to cast. Jude Law is an inspired choice, but my choice would be Josh Hartnett, after the performance he turned in, in Penny Dreadful, his re-invigorated interest in doing comic book movies, and his look.

I would also cast Jensen Ackles as Richard Ryder, but it doesn't seem he's in the plans at this point, with what Gunn said .

Luke Evans for Adam Warlock.

For Mantis, either Olivia Wilde or Summer Glau would be fine.

Jessica Chastain wants to be a super hero. What about Angela?

I'm not sure I dig the concept of Angela in the MCU just yet. I mean, they just got the character... I'd rather wait for the character to simmer a while in the comics and get some iconic story arcs before introducing her into the MCU. Jessica Chastain would, however, be my #1 choice for Carol Danvers at this point.

Maggie Q, she's Vietnamese on her mother's side, Irish-Polish on her father's. I tried looking up a list of half-Asian actresses and talent-wise, the pool isn't too deep.

Captain Mar-Vell - Timothy Olyphant
Captain Marvel (Danvers) - Jessica Chastain or Kathryn Winnick
Voice of Cosmo - Konstantin Khabenskiy

I saw a suggestion of Jamie Chun (She was in Sucker Punch/Once Upon a Time).

Not that terrible.

Natalie Dormer as Moondragon
