    Not bad. I think Tyrese is surprisingly entertaining on film.

    I would definately say no to Dicaprio as Iron Man.

    I think you should stick to characters that Marvel owns the rights to.

    He played his role well in the Transporter flicks and he was pretty good in Snatch and Italin Job.

    I'd rather have Marsters. He's a damned good actor, and I'd bet that he's better than Statham.

    I don't know who I would cast, but I definately wouldn't make my Avengers line up out of members that have or can carry their own movies. Thus no Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, or Black Panther. People(non fans) would be confused with the inevitable different creative takes and continuity problems created by all the different director's of these established movie characters.
    My team for an Avengers movie would be:

    Giant Man
    Wasp
    Scarlet Witch
    Quicksilver
    Vision
    Hawkeye

    He has been named for Cap a lot but i think Mark Valley would be a better hawkeye.

    My Avengers cast would not be The New Avengers. That being said, this is who I would choose...

    Black Panther - Djimon Hinsou
    Captain America - Jason Lewis
    Iron Man - Johnny Depp or Oded Fehr
    Thor - Viggo Mortensen or Karl Urban
    Quicksilver - Heath Ledger
    Scarlet Witch - Milla Jovovitch
    Hawkeye - James Marsters
    Vision - ?
    Wasp - Natalie Portman
    Giant Man - ?

    Good Black Panther

    For Thor I would tend to go more Karl Urban just because I like Viggo for Aquaman or maybe Green Arrow.

    I also think James Marsters might be a better Quicksilver than Hawkeye.

    Now that I think about it, you're probably right.

    ^^^Slim build and slick hair cut. I would definately say so.

    Iron Man seems to be the hardest to cast, everyone seems to have a completly different opinion on who should play him.

    Im pretty sure the list is:
    Tom Cruise
    Billy Zane
    Jude Law
    JOhnny Depp
    Oded Fehr
    Leonardo Dicaprio
    and then some random actor a poster thinks is way underrated(not bashing, I've got my own)

    Maybe this makes him the easiest to please since theres so many choices. I think Billy Zane would be best, personally.

    For Quicksilver, I'd go with Paul Bettany:

    y'know, I know Lewis is a dead on choice for Cap as far as the looks go (though I'd prefer him for Thor), but I've recently seen a movie with him... it's this horrible Z movie and he is, like everyone else, awful in it. I don't trust his acting "skills" to give him the part of Cap.

    I dont think he does but he has certainly been brought among the board. My point was that he Iron Man is the one that not many people can agree on.

    I would go along with the Question's cast, his is the best. For the roster I would have:

    Captain America:
    Iron Man
    the Hulk:
    Giant-Man (Ant-Man becomes Giant-Man in the Avengers)
    Wasp (introduced in Ant-Man)
    Hawkeye
    the Falcon (introduced in a Captain America sequel if the first movie is set in World War II or in the first Captain America movie if they go right away with the man out of time theme)
    Black Widow (obtain the rights from Lion's Gate)
    Spider-Man (negotiate with Sony to put Spider-Man in the movie)

    Cameos: Daredevil, Nick Fury, Black Panther, Sub-Mariner
    Mentions: the Fantastic Four, the X-Men

    Make me understand why you and so many others want Viggo for Thor. Thor is huge and buff. Yeah, Viggo has the acting chops but he'd need to pack on A LOT of muscle to play Thor. I keep seeing his name overe and over for Thor and I just don't get it!

    Personally, I'd have The Avengers act as a sequel to Thor, Captain America, Nick Fury, Iron Man, and The Hulk all at the same time. And, I'd base the plot on The Ultimates, simply because it lends itself to a screen adaptation so very well.


    Well, not many people with a huge build are very good actors. And Mortensen is pretty ripped. He's hardly scrawny.
