    Yeah, sucks casue the dudes actually a good actor. Hopefully the new Tarsem movie he's in proves to be decent.

    He's prepped for years on Deadpool, so hopefully that comes into play for him in some form.

    He's a few more flops away from going back to TV.

    Oh and my choice for Cable is Gerard Butler. I know Stephen Lang would be a nice fit, but he's rumored to be coming back for the Avatar films, so he may not be available.

    Butler is a good choice.

    My cast:

    Cable- Gerard Butler
    Domino- Michelle Rodriguez
    Deadpool- Ryan Reynolds
    Psylocke- Maggie Q

    I have no clue to cast as Shatterstar, who would be my fifth member.

    I'm glad people are liking my Gerard Butler fan cast. What I did was look at the top 100 actors over 30 and he seemed by far the best option...

    I'm not so sold on Michelle Rodriguez. Olivia Wilde looks the part.

    Even if they retcon the whole Deadpool - Origins debacle, to pull off the character he should first be introduced as a threat. The whole Merc with a Mouth concept. Make him a baddie in movie one, and then have him join the team later.

    Now, for Shatterstar, hmmm..........

    Here are some options:

    [​IMG]

    Hayden Christensen
    [​IMG]

    Alex Pettyfer
    [​IMG]

    Jake Abel
    [​IMG]

    Max Irons
    [​IMG]

    Kellan Lutz
    [​IMG]

    Riley Smith
    [​IMG]

    There are also a couple of others that could look the part...

    Of these, and I can't believe I'm saying this, my favorite is...

    Hayden Christiansen

    So your telling me that DOFP is gonna purposely set up Colossus at the end just so he fits into a quote Wadlow said about characters who have never gotten into the mansion? Again, they can barely give him a line of dialogue. Its extremely unlikely that they would move Colossus out of the school in the first place and go out of their way to explain why he's not there.

    I don't see Colossus being a part of the team.

    If a new timeline Is created then Colossus may no longer be at Institute which would free colossus for this film.It's been said X-Force Isn't direct sequel to X-Men films but fits timeline of X-Men films.that can be new timeline.Wadlow had mentioned COllossus In name dropping

    He wasn't name dropping to tell us the roster though. If we go from that we have over 5 members, which we know is not the case. He was saying theres a ton of characters to choose from and they could be from any roster. Not just one. He can't mention anything from the official line up this early. [BLACKOUT]They would have to spend time explaining why Colossus didn't end up in the Xavier school. Something significant would have to happen to Colossus. Theres just no reason to do it in DOFP. [/BLACKOUT]

    Colossus probably has a tiny role anyways, as he has in the other films he's in.

    Yeah, Im not completely against the idea of using him. If they actually took the time to develop the character and use him like Marvelrobbins said, I'd give Singer and Wadlow the credit for planning out a minor character. I just don't see them finally taking an interest or making an effort to set up the character for future films. They have enough on their plate. He's always just punched and threw stuff/people and Singer proabably wont have time to do anything else with him in DOFP. Although he does have a good role in the Deadpool script. That would be cool to see.

    He would be in this movie if he had actually done more in the X-Men films to begin with.

    Hey, for Selene, I'm not sure who should play her. Part of me thinks that somebody older would be great for the role like Sandra Bullock, Michelle Yeoh, Selma Hayak or Geena Davis. Part of me thinks that Sasha Grey would be a good choice as well since Selene never ages. My top choice is Monica Bellucci who I feel could capture the role better than anyone else. My greatest fear is that Megan Fox will be cast as Selene when she clearly can't act.

    So, thoughts of Monica as the villain?

    Yes Selene ages, and like Vulture, she has ability to drain the life force of others to look younger.
    Bellucci for older Selene, Michela Quattrociocche for younger Selene.

    ^ I believe having just one actress for Selene is the way to go. When she over exerts her powers and ages they can use computers to make the actress age, and then go back to being young when she absorbs someone's life force.

    Bellucci is gorgeous, but Selene needs to be a younger actress. Michela Quattrociocche could be good. Sasha Grey? Isn't she a pron star? Um... no, that won't work...

    For some reason I could see Michele Rodriguez in this role:

    Here is a scary one... could Angelena Jolie pull it off?

    Rodriguez would be bad choice for Selene, she could be Callisto, but we already have Callisto.

    Sasha WAS a porn star. She's most recently been doing mainstream roles in films like I Melt With You, The Scribbler and Open Windows.

    Michelle Roderiguez would be better as Marrow. She's edgy, Selene is supposed to be somewhat regal. She's not one for fighting people herself, she usually hires or mind controls others to do her bidding.

    And yes, if there is a sequel, I'd love to see Marrow appear, her and Fantomex. But Michelle Roderiguez is good at playing the kind of girl who'll beat your face in and then spit on your corpse, that's not at all Selene's style but that's absolutely Marrow.

    I don't get the love for Maggie Q unless she can pull off a British accent really well as Fox is now looking at spin-offs and Captain Britain might get one. If somebody can prove me wrong and has a vid of Psylocke sounding British, I'd like to see it but for now, my cast is

    Cable - Michael Biehn

    He's played a time traveler before and is known for taking on roles as a badass. Plus his experience directing makes him a natural lead. I couldn't think of anyone more perfect.
    [​IMG]

    Domino - Mary Elizabeth Winstead

    She's done action films before and has the right amount of talent, charm and attitude needed to play everyone's favorite sniper

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Deadpool - Ryan Reynolds (he's already cast)

    Colossus - Daniel Cudmore (He's already cast)


    Psylocke - Elizabeth Tan She's an actual Brit, she's hot, she's Asian, she has acting chops. She's horrible underrated.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Selene - Monica Belucci

    She has the right amount of acting ability to portray a lead villain and also has the raw sex appeal despite her age to be Selene

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The Dark Riders (in order of spoken lines)
    Gauntlet - Darren Shahlavi

    When it comes to being a brooding badass who's the field leader for a group of supervillains, this guy's underrated and doesn't have the star power to not be the terribly disfigured, fanged Gauntlet that we all know

    Lifeforce - Taylor Shilling

    I went for a larger name here for somebody who'll hog the good catfight scenes with Domino and Psylocke

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tusk - Terry Crews

    As somebody who'll be the big guy who fights Colossus, I'd say that Crews would be great for those scenes. Tusk needs to be big and imposing, which Crews does really well.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Hurricane - Larry the Cable Guy

    When it comes to somebody who can play a middle-aged fat guy who won't have much screen time but needs to leave an impact, I'd say that Larry works.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Barrage - Nicholas King

    Barrage will get a fight scene in but for the most part, he doesn't talk, he just stays silent and looks cool while firing energy blasts. King worked as Mr. Boogie in Sinister doing just that.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Foxbat -I don't care as long as he's a contortionist. He doesn't need actual lines since he's creepier without them. Can anyone here name a male contortionist actor?

    [​IMG]

    And yes, I would keep Hurricane, Barrage and Foxbat to only one or two action scenes each. Tusk wouldn't have all that large of a role either aside from the Colossus fight.

    Ok, here are my thoughts...

    Cable - Michael Biehn

    Eh, maybe. Gerard Butler would be better.

    Domino - Mary Elizabeth Winstead

    Um, too young. This is someone likely to be hooking up with Cable. Their relationship can't be father/daughter, which is what Winstead would be. Olivia Wilde would be better.

    Psylocke - Elizabeth Tan

    Eh, not sure if she has enough background. What has she been in? It's all TV series and shorts. I think Maggie Q is better, and I'm sure she can fake the accent if needed.

    Selene - Monica Belucci

    She is too old. Sorry, but it's true.
