In August 2014, Marvel had announced their plans for going forward with Phase 3 of MCU. It included some very known figures to be introduced such as Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and the re-birth of Spider-Man into the huge galaxy of Marvel movies. But many fans out there didn't know what or who The Inhumans were.

The Inhumans are a race of Superhumans and were established during the Kree-Skrull war much before Earth time. They are also known as The Royal Family, led by Black Bolt. The team consists of Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Triton, Karnak, Gorgon, Maximus the Mad and Lockjaw. The comics have had many crossovers between the Avengers with Inhumans and X-Men with Inhumans.

The Inhumans have already been mentioned in Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and will also have their own solo movie which is set for a release date of July 19 2019, and is also the final movie of the MCU.

On with the fan - casting :

Ryan Gosling as Black Bolt

He has been a major heartthrob for many movie fans out there. He has been rumored for many roles in the MCU itself but never got a chance to land a superhero role in his career. More of an action movie type of an actor, his performances in movies like, Crazy Stupid Love showed he is a very versatile actor but his roles in Drive, The Place Beyond The Pines, The Ideas Of March and Gangster Squad assures us of an action packed Inhumans film. To be fair, Ryan getting the lead in the movie would be something worth watching.

Rosamund Pike as Medusa

I can dye my hair red, not a problem.

Her performances in Gone Girl, Jack Reacher and Pride And Prejudice was phenomenal and seeing her play Medusa alongside Ryan as Black Bolt, who is Medusa's cousin and future husband (yup, they are incest), we would be in for a lot of action and adventure.

Amber Heard as Crystal

Looks very much like a pampered sister, she is the younger sister of Medusa, who she later marries Quicksilver (oh, if he was still alive). Her short roles and comedy roles in Zombieland and Pineapple Express, but her serious and major roles in Drive Angry and Never Back Down, has to make her a front runner for this role. And besides, if Marvel do decide to bring Quicksilver back to life, then we HAVE to see some romance between the two.

Neil Patrick Harris as Triton

There is a saying,

If an actor/actress can perform a comedy role in any movie, he/she can do any sort of role.

Well, by applying those wise words, NPH is surely fit to be Triton, a green colored being who can breath underwater. His role as the ultimate playboy in HIMYM and staggering performance in Gone Girl (seeing him team up with Rosamund once again would be awesome), just showed a glimpse of his talent. NPH just fits the description of Triton, i.e, tall, handsome and of course perfectively slim. If Marvel really must cast a Triton, it has to be Neil and then we all could come out of theatre and just say it was LEGEN-wait for it-DARY!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Karnak

Undoubtedly, one of the most multi talented person in Hollywood right now, JGL can definitely pull off a Karnak. His displays in Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Don Jon and Looper, JGL is a definite candidate for this role. Having the exact muscular built as Karnak, he is a 100% match to the martial artist. And seeing him play NPH younger brother will be so worthy to watch!

Tom Hardy as Gorgon

This British actor has been the most popular 'Tom' for the past few years, with his major role performances in movies like Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, and with his recent major hit Mad Max : Fury Road, there is no stopping this talented actor. Also it would awesome to see him back with JGL after their superb chemistry in Inception. Perfectly built for the role of Gorgon, Tom will not fail to disappoint us at all.

Eddie Redmayne as Maximus the Mad

Younger brother of Black Bolt, Maximus is actually a Supervillain of the Inhumans (sounds like Thor and Loki all over again eh?). Former member of the Inhumans, Black Bolt witnessed Maximus making a pact with a member of the Kree, the alien race responsible for genetically accelerating the Inhumans eons before, as Maximus was jealous of his elder brother.

His 'edge of the seat' display as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, won him an Oscar and his performance in Jupiter Ascending saw him as a villain, so seeing him in a villainous role in the MCU would be really awesome to look forward to.

Thats all with the fan casting from my side? Got some suggestions? Feel free to mention them in the comments box. Stay tuned for awesome posts coming your way. Goodbye for now.
