    It won't happen, but Keanu is an incredible physical actor--his perfect MCU role would be Blackbolt. He would also be a fantastic Namor. One other possibility is Norman Osborn.

    I really like the Black Bolt idea. Namor is harder to say, partly because I'm just not much of a Namor fan and I'm not entirely clear what the character is beyond an arrogant and irrational jerk. Can't say I see Keanu as Osborn at all, though.

    So long as we're throwing out casting possibilities for Keanu, I'm gonna go with Silver Surfer.

    Love the idea of Keanu as Black Bolt. The Inhumans ship has likely sailed in the MCU, but it would be fantastic casting.


    On top of the Shang-Chi casting news earlier this week, latest production start date is supposed to be November. So they've still got time to round up the right collection of actors.

    It's not out of the question. One MCU production, the original Agent Carter short, has already been removed from MCU canon, because it was superseded by the Agent Carter TV series. So it's conceivable that something else could be decanonized as well. Since nobody much liked Inhumans, and since it hasn't been referenced anywhere else in the MCU, it'd be easy enough to disregard it and try again.

    No, it's certainly not impossible that Feige will re-do the Inhumans, but the odds of it happening within the next 3-5 years have got to be way under 50/50.

    I would say the odds are even less simply because there seems to be a lot of films on the upcoming block for that period of time anyways (varying from already filming, essentially confirmed, and highly expected).

    It's kind of weird how they keep making announcements about Black Widow, but then when someone mentions it, suddenly Feige won't say that it's really happening.

    I was thinking Keanu for Namor because he does the stoic, silent type really well. I also like him as the brooding Silver Surfer.

    Sersi I would assume would be a long-term committment. Would Hayek be interested in a multi-movie deal at marvel?

    The main theory is that Jolie would be Sersi, but maybe not.

    I do like that they're not afraid to go after actresses for major roles who would typically be considered "too old" for big pictures these days.

    IE, older than 35 by Hollywood logic.

    Oh, damn, that's a shame. I love Gaiman's Marvel 1602 but I can see why they didn't go for it.

    Damn, she's getting on board with all of the franchises! Godzilla, Sherlock Holmes, and now possibly Marvel? Fantastic. :D
