Why it would only confuse people if they did it in any kind of meaningful way A la give her a British accent. That being said she looks much better visually asian. Also, like I said before, Lucy Liu would be amazing Asian Psylock.

Lucy Liu could defently handle action and many straight guys and possibly some lesbians
would find her sexy but i don't think they would hire a 40ish actress for a key role in possable first film In trilogy/series of film.

Lucy looks great and no doudt woule be great as Psylocke.

Back in the Charlie's Angels movie days, I wanted Lucy Lui to play Psylocke!

Sorry, love Lucy, but she is too old for Psylocke at this point.

Need someone on the younger side (and someone who is not asian)!

For Cable, I think the first big question is how old should he be? My guess is somewhere between 40 and 50. So, with that in mind I searched top actors between 30 and 50 (make-up can help the younger ones) and came up with the following that could work for Cable:



Clive Owen

Gerard Butler
This... Is... X-FORCE!!!!!
Matthew McConaughey

Jason Stratham



Not so sure McConaughey can pull off such a serious role and Butler's accent and hairline (yes, both things that can be covered) don't work.

Best pick seems to be Clive Owen!

If Wadlow wants to do the character justice, he needs to cast a British actress of Asian descent.

Elizabeth Tan is my first choice which I had to do some searching for since the only name that initially came to mind was Naoko Mori who's too old for the role.

This is Elizabeth Tan. She has the look, she has the voice and she's young enough that she won't need to be recast for a long time.



I also favor keeping Reynolds and Cudmore.

Cable should be Stephen Lang, Michael Beihn or Dolph Lundgren.



Domino needs to be somebody who can pull off tough but also funny and charming. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is no stranger to genre films and her performance in Smashed was enough to convince me that she needs to be attached to a tentpole movie.


As far as villains go, I'd like to see Selene

Just watched an interview with Elizabeth Tan.

She definitely has the look and accent for an Asian Psylocke.

I can as long as you join in with me. Let's all get together to spam Bryan Singer and Lauren Shuler Donner's Twitter accounts today so the producers get the message. If you're also so inclined, add in Jeff Wadow to the mix.

Olivia Wilde is a good idea for Domino!

I don't like Maggie Q for Psylocke, she looks too mature for her.

She's also too American. I'm one of those people who's really hoping that Omar Sy manages to pull off an Australian accent and if he doesn't I'll complain that he should have been Fantomex.

What do they have to look prepubescent? She looks age appropriate for a role like this.

She looks like she's already in her early 40s and she's too mature-looking to pull off a traditional Psylocke costume. Even when she appeared in MI:3, I couldn't envision her as Psylocke.

Someone who is in the late 20s or early 30s would be perfect for Psylocke and this is considering that the actress that they will hire could comeback to play Psylocke for the next 10 years and more.

No way, Maggie Q does not look early 40's.

She could pass for late 20's.

Thats your opinion, do you think she doesn't look too mature for Psylocke?

Too mature? No, I don't see that at all. She's age appropriate, pretty sure Maggie is under 35. She looks younger then that imo. I don't see what would make her look over 40.

Loving these discussions...

Here's my 2 cents!

Pyslocke:

I would rather not see the Japanese version, but I can understand why, especially internationally, this might be what they are looking for. But, if they do go with the asian Pylocke then I would much rather see an actress that has a lesser asian look. Maggie Q has that look. I do see why some might feel she is slightly on the older side for a role like this, since I see Psylocke as someone who needs to be say mid-20's. But Maggie Q is along the lines of what I would like to see if they go that route.

Domino:

I am now totally sold on Olivia Wilde. That picture of her from Tron shows how amazing she would fit. Plus she's a pretty decent actress, so yes please, sign me up for some Olivia Wilde! Would love to see her in costume and make-up!

Cable:

Look, I know some people really like Stephen Lang, but he really doesn't have the look. He's old, so he fits that side of Cable, but the face is totally wrong, and he's not someone the GA would really root for. Think about him in Avatar. Yes, he was the bad guy, but he fit that role very well. He's just not that likable as a character actor. And Dolf Lundgren is really laughable for this very important role. Can everyone admit that Cable will be the main character? Hopefully X-Force will be sans Wolverine so Cable can shine (figuratively and literally). That means he needs to be an actor that the GA will like. And in looking at all of the options out there I think Clive Owen is a perfect fit. His jaw line, hair line, build (maybe he'll need to bluk up a bit, or they will use a suit); it all fits. He's the guy!!!

Now we should start looking at the other likely X-Force candidates. What I mean is that everyone knows that X-Force will include Cable and Domino, and very likely Psylocke. But, will there be any younger characters? Will there be any New Mutant characters (meaning characters from the comic book storylines). I would love to see Cannonball and maybe Boom Boom in X-Force!!!!!

So, who could work for:

Canonball:

Boom Boom/Meltdown:

What are the odds that X-23 will make the roster? If they have her, would it be safe to assume/hope that Wolverine would not be on the team since the powers are the same? But at the same time her appeal is the fact that she is Wolverine's clone and their relationship. I would rather not see her. Who would be a good actress for her?

Are we 100% on Deadpool being in, or would he be a better initial antagonist (that joins the team for movie #2)?

Do we agree that Archangel is unlikely?

What about Shatterstar? Cool powers and swordwielding, but backstory is tough.

Can we agree that Elixir is unlikely? His power would be bad on screen.

Can we assume that Warpath will not be on the team since he'll be in DOFP?

Would Wolfsbane make the list? If so why and who could pull her off?

So, am I missing anyone?

Too mature? Should be 10 years older than in TLS, so about 33-35 years old.

You're talking about a character who's been Asian for over 20 years. That's like asking Ms. Marvel to be a man or making War Machine white. In Hollywood, most roles are written for white actors. Filling a tentpole movie with white men at the expense of everyone else by changing the characters is going to alienate so many fans and you're clearly missing the entire point of the X-Men who are an international team who band together despite their differences to save the world. The team wouldn't be the same without female, black, Latino, Asian, gay, etc. members.

Odds are, when an X-Factor spin-off is announced, you're going to be asking for Rictor to be straight.
