The current casting choices for all the Avengers are absolutely PERFECT! but if that terrible, dreaded day came that they had to recast due to expired/ non-renewed contracts or just old age, then who would play our most favorite team of super-AWESOME-heroes? I've put together a list of who I think could play the Avengers and other characters from the film and why I think they'd be perfect for the roles. So, ladies and supernerds, start your engines y'all!!!!!

1. Iron Man/ Keanu Reeves

Genius billionaire playboy philanthropist.....

Iron Man was the hardest one to figure out who should play the role. I mean, Robert Downey Jr. is just the absolute best at his part. He. Is. Iron Man!!!!! However, since this is a Re-casting article, I can't very well cast RDJ again into the role, so I bring to you Keanu Reeves. I think, if anyone could replace the amazing Robert Downey Jr., he could.

The Invincible Armored Iron Man!!!!

Keanu Reeves obviously has experience with advanced technologies! The Matrix. That's all I need to say! He's had plenty of films in which he was an action hero, so doing any stunts outside of the Iron Armor wouldn't be a problem at all. Like I said, he couldn't even hold half of a candle to the awesomeness that is Robert Downey Jr., but he's my best candidate.

2. Captain America/Stephen Amell

Captain America......
Captain America......

Now, most of you who know who Stephen Amell is, are used to seeing him wield a bow and arrow because of his portrayal of the Green Arrow in the television series Arrow, but why not wield a shield?

The First Avenger!

The pics I used really show how good of a comparison there is between Amell and Cap from the comics. Not only does he have the right face for the job, but he's also a pretty dang big dude!!! He's great for serious scenes and for some humorous ones as well. Still not convinced? Then check out this scene from Arrow and see for yourself Amell break out the Captain America: Winter Solider-like moves. The killing blow at the end isn't very Cap-like, but if he's already this good, imagine what he could do with a dose of Super Soldier Serum!!

3. Thor/ Josh Holloway

The Mighty Thor.....
The Mighty Thor.....

This is the only other decision that I'm 100% on board with. It's really hard to replace Chris Hemsworth as Thor because he's just so freakin' huge. I meam, he's enormous!!!!!! I just couldn't think of anyone else who was as big as he was, but if anyone could do it, Josh Holloway would be the man for the job.

Prince of thunder!!!

Hemsworth is big, which is probably one of the reasons he's such a good Thor. He really seems like a "god" because of his gigantic stature. Now, Holloway's not quite as big, but he's a good enough size that he could make a descent Thor. He's got a bit of charm, but also can be serious as well. This could really help with his portrayal of the Norse god of Thunder!!!!

4. Hulk/ Matthew McConaughey

Yes, I did have to look up how to spell his name.

Matthew McWhat's-his-name sorta looks like Bruce Banner to me. Other people don't see it, but the cheek-bones and jaw? It looks like him. Matt can also play a really smart character and have people take him seriously.

The Incredible Hulk!!!
The Incredible Hulk!!!

He's pretty fit, so he can do the stunts required in a superhero film, but he's also small enough to pass as good ol' scrawny Bruce Banner. And of course, anyone can play the Hulk half of the character, because, ya know...CGI. It's really a casting choice for Bruce Banner more than for the Hulk.

5. Black Widow/ Jennifer Garner

Sydney Bristow.

Jennifer Garner is someone I believe could absolutely ROCK as Black Widow. I know, I know, she's already been in a MARVEL movie when she played Electra in the movies Daredevil and...well...Electra, but I still think she'd be awesome at it.

The Russian spy.

If you've watched the television series Alias, you know she's already done several Black Widowish things already. She can use practically any object as a weapon and is pretty good lookin' to boot! Below is one of the most intense fight scenes from Alias. It's got a wide spectrum of fighting styles that she's mastered, and could use to advantage whilst playing Black Widow!

6. Hawkeye/ Chris Pine

The Avenging Archer.

Chris Pine, I think, would make an excellent Hawkeye. This is the only casting choice I prefer over the one MARVEL chose. Not that Jeremy Renner (the current Hawkeye) is a bad actor, but he just hasn't really portrayed himself as the Hawkeye we all know and love. The Hawkeye that's always making bad puns and joking around with his clever and hilarious sense of humor.

SOOOOO much better than Green Arrow!!!!
SOOOOO much better than Green Arrow!!!!

Chris Pine already has that kind of character down. I mean, just look at....EVERY ROLE HE'S EVER PLAYED!!!!!! He just needs to take some archery lessons and then he'd be solid. Plus, he'd be able to join the MARVEL Chris Club. A club including Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), and Chris Pratt (Star-Lord).

7. Nick Fury/ Thomas Jane

You look pale Nick. Maybe you should get some sun!!

Yes, another MARVEL actor, Thomas Jane, who played the Punisher. I'm going for the traditional Nick Fury with this guy.

Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.!!!!!
Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.!!!!!

He's a little older than he was when he played Punisher, but not old enough that he can't do the stunts he'd have to. Just picture him with an eye patch and he's golden. Here is a short collection of scenes showing just how awesome this guy is. He could totally take down some baddies as Director Fury! Chitauri, look out!!!!!!!!

8. Loki/ Elijah Wood

You god of mischief you!
You god of mischief you!

Tom Hiddleston is amazing. His performance as Loki has granted him the status of one of the best on-screen super villains of all time!!!!! I'd hate to see him go, but if he absolutely had to be replaced, I think Elijah Wood could fill those empty shoes pretty well.

King of Jotunheim!!!
King of Jotunheim!!!

He not only has the looks, but is kinda small, so in comparison with Thor, he would appear to be even more of a conniving little devil.

9. Loki....Again/ Nestor Carbonell

Loki.....
Loki.....

I know, I already did Loki, but I just couldn't decide between these two, so I put them both in. I think that Carbonell would be an amazing Loki!

Son of Laufi!

He most definitely looks the part, and his eyeliner eyes help out a whole lot too!!! Here's a scene that reminds me of Loki visiting Thor when he's arrested by S.H.I.E.L.D. in the movie Thor.

Well, that's that!!! What do you guys think? Are these choices alright? Did I do a good job? I think so, but what about you? Let me know down below! Thanks!!!!!! :)
