Re: Cast actors for AVENGERS II

Ant-Man...I'm going obvious: Nathan Fillion. I still like the rumour from a couple years ago for Janet, Eva Longoria. Carol: either Katee Sackoff, or Yvonne Stravorski.

Great idea!

The Scarlet Witch: Kim Kardashian. Armenian, gypsy, same difference.
The badness of this idea invalidates the greatness of your previous idea.
Are you thinking of the beautiful dynamic powerful mothering figure from the 60's, 70's and most of the 80s...

In recent years we found out that her children were a psychotic affliction that escaped the psychosis between her ears, which eventually lead to the confrontation with the Avengers that left a string of hero corpses (Hawkeye, Antman, Jack of Hearts, the Vision, others...) and the all but annihilation of the mutant species.

Wanda Maximoff is the wackjob who turned down marriage with zombie fungus from beyond the stars to mother space Jesus, to get hitched to a toaster by the Avengers greatest villain.

Her father is literally and sincerely comparable to Adolf Hitler, and most people think she slept with her brother... Without accounting for her rcent history where this woman tied the knot with Victor VonDoom because she believed that she could change him.

I care little for Kim, but the only person more qualified to play the Scarlet Witch in a movie than Miss Kardashian is a young Sean Penn.

Not a typo.

I did not mean a young Sean Young.

Only Sean Penn trying to survive living with Madonna brings the essential maximoffian sort of crazy to the table to cream this woman the justice she deserves as the worlds chief dingbat.

They couldn't use Beast, since 20th Century Fox has the film rights to the character.
Just create a new character that's like Beast but isn't.

Fans love that sort of thing. Right?

(Actually, given comic book universe's redundancies, there probably is such a character.)

She kills TV shows, not movies. Maybe just because she hasn't had much chance...

How do we explain Serenity? Did she kill it because it was an extension of the TV show that she killed? Or that she killed it because it was a movie she was in?

(I do have to say, I find her very overrated. Even by the low requirements of Girl In Genre Film.)

Re: Cast actors for AVENGERS II

Summer Glau doesn't kill shows any more than Ted McGinley did before her. Since most TV shows have short lives, and failed series outnumber successful ones, it's inevitable that plenty of actors appear in multiple failed series, sometimes several in a row. The fact that Summer Glau gets singled out merely shows how memorable a performer she is.

Re: Cast actors for AVENGERS II

I'm making my way through the John Larroquette Show.

IMDB says Ted's in there eventually.

If McGinley's there for season two, you're probably right.

But...

If he's a season three actor, where everything went wrong, then you're probably wrong.

She didn't kill it.

You can't kill a film. Maybe you could kill a film series. But the film is there. I can see the DVD from where I'm sitting. It's a done deal.

Re: Cast actors for AVENGERS II

A film can run out of money half way through.

And the studio can shelf complete bollocks for years to forever if they feel like it.

You want her to play Emerald Blair if Hollywood options the movie rights to Only Superhuman, don't you?

No, she's the wrong type. If we're thinking in terms of Whedon veterans, it should be more like someone with the looks of Scarlett Johansson and the attitude of Eliza Dushku.

There is a supporting character in the novel who's more Glau's type, but she's Japanese.

Re: Cast actors for AVENGERS II

Scarlett is a Whedon veteran after only one film?
