    We'll all scream for joy that the best choice possible has been cast. That's the reaction everyone should have. :o

    Please Marvel, please

    A lot of this is just being careful and making things look right. You see it a lot in sports. A player or coach says "No, we haven't had any talks or contact" and so on and, then, a week or so later, they are announcing a new contract.

    There may, in fact, be no talks. I hope that's not the case, but you never know.

    Another possibility is that public acknowledgment can make negotiations more difficult than they already are. Another thing is that no one wants to say "Yeah, I'd really like to do this" and then be publicly snubbed. This is especially true with actors as so much of their success depends on image. I came in second or third isn't the image actors try to burnish. Y'know?

    I'll definitely lose my hype if Blunt gets casted.

    I think its safe to say she hasn't gotten an offer yet. Unless there is an earlier appearance like BP, Fiege said we would hear about directors before we hear about actors

    You might be in the minority on that one. Y'know, I wonder if anyone at Marvel pays a whit of attention to this poll or that poll or even knows about it??? I doubt it. Blunt is hot right now so I'm guessing she's been part of the discussion. I wonder how the casting really gets done. I guess they have the main person in charge of it, the director, the other principals and come to some sort of consensus with fallback plans in case someone doesn't work out???

    I never even wondered about this before. Does anyone know how that generally works?

    From what I've gathered, they (studio head, producer, director, etc.) brainstorm and throw some names around. They come up with a list and discuss the pros and cons of each one until they've cut some people. They'd discuss who is available at that time, who's hot, whose movies are making money, who's getting buzz for their current projects, what's each actress' asking salary, etc. If they have a pretty powerful writer (like, say, Aaron Sorkin) then his input is also valuable to the "list". Usually, agents play a part too. There would be stuff like Agent X will send an email (or call) and say "Hey, I heard you're casting Captain Marvel. *insert actress* would be great for the role! She's like to have a meeting with *insert director*". Once they've narrowed it down, the actresses will meet with the director (maybe even the producer) and see if their vision for the character jives. Depending on the role, there could be screen-tests too to even narrow down the list to like one or two people. An offer would eventually be made once a consensus is made with a few backups in case the talks fall apart for whatever reason. You'd have cases too where the director wants someone, the writer wants another one, and the studio demands a completely different one. In such case, whoever is most powerful will have the last word.

    That's good old fanboy logic right there.

    Probably a real long shot anyway, but I'd love her (Blunt) in the role. :word:

    I agree that she doesn't look like the spitting image of the character but who cares if she acts the role well? It's close enough when she has blond hair.

    Acting talent over looking exactly like the character. Always works out better in the end.

    If not, we'd have Scott Adkins running around playing Batman and Captain America.

    I'm also in the minority that's not really convinced about Blunt. I picture Danvers as more warm and approachable. Whereas Blunt has this mysterious feel about her, sort of like the silent but deadly kind. I can see why they wanted her for Widow at first. I think a few posters have also pointed this out before. And it's not like she's the only one who can act. But then again I'm not a casting director or anything , so what do I know.

    I think she just gives that impression because of the roles she's been doing. Most of her popular roles are the snobbish/standoff-ish types. But if you watch her interviews, IMO, she oozes likability and warmth.

    Hence why she is still a maybe for me. I have no idea how it will turn out if she plays a tough character without the snobbish/standoffish stuff. We shall have to wait and see I guess.

    I don't think that she is the only choice or anything. I know it may seem that way because she's a fan casting "it girl." I wouldn't shed a tear if Blunt isn't cast because she isn't the only game in town.

    But she's by far one of the best choices for the role out of the actresses suggested.

    Why people would ever pick Sackhoff over her I'll never know. She is a horrible actress.

    Because she at least looks something like the character.

    There are plenty of good television actors and actresses, Sackhoff and Strahovski aren't on that list. I know they are fan favorites but in my opinion they don't have the chops to lead a big budget film or any film really.

    Agreed.

    Taylor Schilling is a TV actress who I think could do in the part.

    Sackhoff is nowhere near the top of my list.

    More like she doesn't look like the image you've cultivated in your head.
