    I'd like some suggestions before I do a poll. I actually came up with alot of ideas . But people probably have some others. We don't know how old the character is going to be. But anyway here are a bunch of actresses in alphabetical order. Many of them came from suggestions at IMDB and from the "stax report" at IGN. Sorry if I've taken the liberty of excluding people I don't ever think would agree to star in a 2nd string character Marvel movie from a first time director (David Hayter) like Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie. Cameron Diaz is the only A+ list star I included because unlike those I just mentioned, she's yet to try a solo female action chick movie. Jolie already has with Tomb Raider and Charlize is with Aeon Flux. I also excluded people they reccomended or some might reccomend who wouldn't be considered traditionally hot enough to star in the movie (Franka Potente, Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts with dark hair)

    anyway here's my list. There are only 25 choices but I'm sure people will suggest some that are better than some of these. Anyway....

    Mischa Barton 18
    Jessica Biel 22
    Kate Bosworth 21
    Jordana Brewster 24
    Brooke Burns 26
    Cameron Diaz 32
    Eliza Dushku 24
    Carmen Electra 32
    Katherine Heigl 25
    Katie Holmes 25
    Scarlett Johansson 19
    Milla Jovovich 28
    Kristanna Loken 24
    Josie Maran 26
    Eva Mendes 30
    Alyssa Milano 32
    Bridget Moynahan 33
    Jaime Pressly 27
    Denise Richards 33
    Rebecca Romijn-Stamos 31
    Izabella Scorupco 34
    Amy Smart 28
    Kim Smith 21
    Uma Thurman 34
    Liv Tyler 27

    How about that chick from Van Helsing?

    She's quite a piece of ass, if you don't mind my saying...

    Not really. I mean, I don't think so. She's very overhyped and she's had alot of work done, doesn't come off as natural both litterally and figurativly. Not to mention Van Helsing absolutely sucked. It made "Pearl Harbor" look like the Godfather.

    Just my opinion. I just think casting her would be a boring choice as she's already overexposed in that genre, and the work she's overexposed herself in it has sucked. Same for Milla Jovovitch

    I definitely like Milla Jovovich for this. Great action star, looks the role and you can't beat the authenticity of someone who is actually from the Soviet Union.

    Kate Beckinsale is definitly a hottie but i see her more like Psylocke from x-men

    Milla might work
    Becca Romijn would be hott as the widow
    Loken would be good 2 except now she is playing Rayne from the ps2 game Bloodrayne

    I don't wanna see an actress who has already played a character in a comic book movie or video game movie....we need a new face for every new character.

    I'm ok with some instances of using the same actor twice even within the Marvel movieverse. But 3 times is a bit much. I guess Rebecca works so well because she's one of the few real women to have the perfect proportions that so many artists like to draw their women as having. But I have zero problem with using someone who's already played someone in a comic or videogame movie, in a different universe than Marvel.

    I just think someone like Kate Beckinsale or Milla Jovavich would suck trying to star in a movie like this. They're very meh' to me. Very un extraordinary and fake-ish.

    I am not so sure because already Wesley Snipes is in talks of doing a Black Panther movie...you wouldn't thin kthat would be weird to see the Black Panther movie and be seeing Blade the whole time?

    I don't think he'll end up playing T'Challa if anyone in the black panther movie. I think his production company is just going to work on it. I don't think they'd have a relatively old guy playing someone who would probably have to be young in his origin movie.

    No one should play her. There shouldn't even be a Black Widow movie. I mean it's bad enough that Elektra isn't going to burn up the box office, what the hell has Avi and the movie studio's thinking that Black Widow would do any better?

    They should just use this time, money and resources on more important projects like The Silver Surfer, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk 2.

    Well too bad because it's going to happen. It'll be David Hayter's directorial debut. I don't think Electra is necessarily going to be that good, but I don't really like Jennifer Garner. However look at Tomb Raider. Action or sci-fi movies with female leads can be successful. There just haven't been that many of them. I mean, you could also compare it to kill bill, even if Black Widow isn't as gorey or whatever. I don't think they'd be going ahead with this so quickly if it wasn't a pretty good script.

    Nope. Talks are quite different than being signed. I think Hayter wants her because he's had experience with her. She already played a role similar to her in "Femme Fatale". A very convoluted movie with the hottest non-nude scene I've probably ever seen. Rebecca dancing in her bra and panties on and around a pool table.
