So, me and my brother were talking about how MARVEL is getting all of the big name actors so we started flipping through the pages of the ol' MARVEL Encyclopedia and were trying to figure out which actors or actresses should play certain MARVEL heroes or villains that weren't already cast. MARVEL is amazing and it deserves all of the best actors they can find. plus, who doesn't wanna be in a superhero movie. So, here's a list of 17 actors who could do join the MCU family and why they're characters are likely to come to the movies. I think they're some pretty good ideas, tell me what you guys think in the comments.

Our first actor is...

Jackie Chan

Aww look at that smile.
Aww look at that smile.

And I think he could play a pretty good Wong.

Wong, Doctor Strange's partner/ butler. Wong is basically a ninja and sometimes has energy katanas and others, just regular ones. Jackie Chan would be awesome in this role, although he's getting older, but I think seeing Wong in the movies is a huge possibility seeing how the Doctor Strange movie is coming out next year.

Stephan Lang

Old but ripped!

And I think he could play a pretty good Cable.

I can see it happening. Can you?
I can see it happening. Can you?

Cable, the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey (the Phoenix) from the X-Men. And I also think that seeing Cable in theaters soon is a possibility because of some rumors I've heard about an X-Force movie in the works.

Mark Hamil

Dang! Skywalker got old!!!!!
Dang! Skywalker got old!!!!!

And I think he could play a pretty good Gardener.

The Gardener is an Elder of the Universe. The only Elder that we've seen in the films, so far, is the Collector, in Guardians of the Galaxy and the end credits scene of Thor 2. The Elders are being who cannot die by any means. They get bored and pick up hobbies the Collector collects, the Gardener gardens, and so forth. I think it's possible we'll be seeing other Elders in the future so the Gardener showing up is pretty likely.

John Hurt

This guy's awesome.
This guy's awesome.

And I think he could play a pretty good Ancient One.

That guy.
That guy.

The Ancient One is another Doctor Strange character. He trained Strange along with Mordo, who later turned evil. He is extremely powerful, but was killed when a demon tried to enter their dimension through the Ancient One's mind and Strange was forced to kill him. Having the Ancient One in the movies is also a very strong possibility. He will very likely appear in the Doctor Strange movie.

John Hurt could also play Ego the living Planet

Oh, it's a planet. Didn't see that one coming.
Oh, it's a planet. Didn't see that one coming.

Ego is, well, a living planet. And being a cosmic character, it's some what likely we'll see him in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, or at least he'll get referenced.

Will Smith

One of THE best actors EVER!!!!!

And I think he could play a perfect Blade.

That guy's scary.
That guy's scary.

Blade is half vampire and half human. He is intent on killing all of the vampires in the world and totally kicks butt and is frickin' crazy cool. MARVEL, if they decide to reboot Blade, should totally pick Will Smith. It'd be cool if he got his own movie, but also if he appeared on the new Daredevil show.

Speaking of Daredevil, that brings us to our next actor,

Peter Capaldi

I had to because..ya know...Doctor Who and all.
I had to because..ya know...Doctor Who and all.

And I think he could play a pretty good Stick.

He. Is. Perfect.
He. Is. Perfect.

Stick is the mysterious trainer of Daredevil. He doesn't have very powerful powers, but is still pretty dang tough. Capaldi, I think, is perfect for this role, although he'll have to hide his British accent. It's also very likely that we'll see Stick in the near future via the new Daredevil show by Netflix.

Morgan Freeman

Everybody loves Morgan Freeman!
Everybody loves Morgan Freeman!

And I think he could play a pretty good T'Chaka.

Right?
Right?

T'Chaka is the father of T'Challa, the Black Panther and the king of Wakanda (a fictitious MARVEL country in Africa). He was the Black Panther at first, but when he was killed his son took his place and became a superhero and king of Wakanda. Seeing T'Chaka is very likely since the Black Panther movie is coming out in just a few years. Morgan Freeman would do excellently, plus he'd help draw a bigger audience to the film.

David Ramsey

Diggle!!!
Diggle!!!

And I think he could play a pretty good Man-Ape.

Monkey Rage!
Monkey Rage!

Man-Ape is a tribe leader barbarian with ape-like powers who's intent on taking the Black Panther's throne of Wakanda. He is in fact the one who killed T'Chaka and claimed the throne until the Black Panther took it back. Ramsey, who I only know from the Arrow tv show, has had looks of hate in his eyes that makes me think he'd be awesome as the Man-Ape. Seeing him is fairly likely too because he's a pretty classic Black Panther villain and we might see in the movie coming up.

Sean Bean

And I think he could play a pretty good Balder.

"By Balder's manly earlobes!" -Thor
"By Balder's manly earlobes!" -Thor

Balder is Thor's best friend from Asgard, who surprisingly never showed in the movies....yet. With Thor: Ragnarok coming up, it's very likely that Balder will show up then seeing as how he dies during the Ragnarok in the comics. This would be even more fitting for Sean Bean to play him because he dies in nearly every film he appears in. Plus, give a sword to Sean Dean and amazing things happen, just ask the Uruk Hai.

Emma Watson

And I think she could play a pretty good Tigra.

Although she's a stinkin' spy.
Although she's a stinkin' spy.

Tigra is a superhero with tiger powers....obviously. She was in the Civil War working for Iron Man whilst pretending to be on Captain America's side and spying on them. With Captain America: Civil War coming out next year, and MARVEL's lack of female heroes, I'd say we might very well be seeing her.

Jayden Smith

Son of  a legend! It's Jayden Smith!!!

And I think he could play a pretty good Spider-man.

Miles Morales
Miles Morales

Now now, before you go crazy, let me explain. I don't mean Peter Parker Spider-man, I mean Miles Morales, the African-American Spider-man. And since Sony only has the rights to Spider-man and related characters, they need to use every character at their disposal, including Miles Morales.

Seth Rogan

He made some Koreans pretty dang mad

And I think he could play a pretty good Hercules.

Son of Zeus!!!
Son of Zeus!!!

Hercules, like Thor, is a being whom, in ancient times, the Greeks looked on as a god, although he's really just an alien. He and Thor are very good friends and go on many adventures together. If Seth Rogan pulls a Chris Pratt and gets totally ripped, he'd make the perfect Hercules. And I think it'd be possible that we'd see him in Thor: Ragnarok, since practically all of the 'gods' band together.

Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson

The Tooth Fairy
The Tooth Fairy

And I think he could play a pretty good Korg.

"The Killer of His Brothers"
"The Killer of His Brothers"

Korg, the Thing-like dude, is one of the alien gladiators that the Hulk fought with and befriended on the planet Sakkarr when he was banished there during the Planet Hulk storyline. When Hulk returned to Earth and declared war on the planet during the World War Hulk storyline, Korg was one of his friends that fought with him. Dwayne would do great in this role especially since he's nicknamed "the Rock" and Korg is made out of rock-like material....get it? :) It's fairly likely that Hulk will get a solo movie in the future, they'll most likely use the Planet Hulk or World War Hulk storyline and Korg would star in it.

Anne Hathaway

And I think she could play a pretty good Elloe Kaiffi.

Woah
Woah

Elloe Kaiffi is another of the alien gladiators Hulk befriends on Sakkarr and comes back to Earth with him to wage war. She also is just as likely to show up in the MCU as Korg.

Tom Cruise

Live. Die. Repeat.
Live. Die. Repeat.

And I think he could play a pretty good Hiroim "The Shamed".

This dude's awesome by the way.
This dude's awesome by the way.

Hiroim "The Shamed" is yet another of the alien gladiators Hulk meets on Sakkarr. He, in my opinion is the best of Hulk's friends and even goes toe to toe with Luke Cage during World War Hulk. Again, he's as good a chance as Korg or Elloe to make the big screen.

Daniel Dae Kim

We've got to go back to the island Jack.
We've got to go back to the island Jack.

And I think he could play a pretty good Agent Jimmy Woo.

Freeze scum-bag.
Freeze scum-bag.

Jimmy Woo is an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. His arch nemesis is the Yellow Claw and he's even made two different superhero teams to try and stop him. He's a direct descendant of Genghis Khan and is very cool. Seeing him is very likely since he's a pretty popular agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. He could appear in the tv show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., or in practically any of the movies.

Martin Freeman

This guy's great.
This guy's great.

Now, I don't have a particular character for him to plat, but I do think he should be in the Doctor Strange movie. He and Benedict Cumberbatch were together in Sherlock and the Hobbit trilogy. Now that Cumberbatch is playing Strange, it would be awesome if they worked together on this too. Maybe Martin Freeman could be Strange's best friend at the hospital. Strange is a surgeon and Freeman could play another doctor and they'd be besties.

I had a couple characters for Thor 3, and I just realized, if you say "Thor three" really fast, you sound like you're saying "Sorcery" with a lisp. HAHAHA. I should probably get to bed now.

Ohh, maybe Jack Black could play Pip the Troll!!!! Now we just need to find the perfect character for Larry the Cable Guy.

Well, whatdoyouthink? Do you think these actors/actresses deserve the characters I gave them? Let me know.
