Fantastic Four

The reboot of the classic superhero team, The Fantastic Four, still looks very misguided without the prevailing hand of Marvel Studios. The cast is much younger than they are in the comics, and it seems extremely improbable that five people in their early twenties would teleport to some space rock. But, with all my frustrations with Hollywood gone, let's look at how the cast will perform individually. Half of this cast is extremely experienced and critically acclaimed, while the other half is almost brand new to Hollywood, much less blockbusters. In my opinion, Kate Mara and Miles Teller will shine, while Michael B Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Toby Kebbell will struggle, possibly even crash-and-burn. I think Jamie Bell's performance will be the worst. I could be totally wrong, but The Thing's backstory and attitude is quite an undertaking. Personally, I think Fantastic Four will be the worst Marvel movie since The Wolverine, but, then again, I could be pleasantly surprised.

Sharon Carter

While we have all already seen Emily Vancamp star as Agent 13 in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, she is yet to be revealed as Sharon Carter, expert S.H.E.I.L.D. agent. I think Vancamp will continue to perform well as Sharon Carter as her role expands.


Okay first of all, I would like to praise Marvel Studios for finally casting Spider-Man accurately. Tobey Maguire looked like a 40 year old running around on the rooftops and Andrew Garfield was always way too cool to play Peter Parker. Hopefully, Tom Holland finally does the part of Peter Parker justice. It may be weird at first just having Spider-Man thrust into a group movie without a preceding solo film, but that may be the best move, no one wants to watch another Spidey origin story.


Once again Marvel has found an actor that looks incredibly accurate to the comic book character. There is a lot of speculation about how Jon Bernthal will enter the cinematic universe and although he is a relatively new actor on the scene, I believe he will do incredibly in this role.

Doctor Strange

Benedict Cumberbatch may have been born to play the role of Doctor Strange. He has incredibly odd body features and isn't buff or the typical superhero looking type. Personally, with all his acting experience and success, I think Cumberbatch will do this role more justice than anyone else ever could dream of.

Black Panther

Chadwick Boseman would not exactly be the first person I would have thought of for the role of T'Challa, but I'll guess he'll suffice. I honestly have never seen him act in anything, but in all his movies he seems to do mediocre in. I'm not an expert on Chadwick Boseman or Black Panther, but I guess he could do okay.

Luke Cage

Mike Colter is perfect to play Powerman, I really don't know what else to say. Good job Marvel.

Jessica Jones

Personally I am not a fan of Krysten Ritter, and I don't think [A.K.A. Jessica Jones](tag:1168773) looks like something that will be that incredibly interesting either. I know nothing about Jessica Jones, and I think most of the general public doesn't either. This gives Ritter a lot more artistic freedom than someone like Charlie Cox or Mark Ruffalo would have had. This gives her space to turn the character into someone likable in order to get people to actually watch the show.

Iron Fist

Ryan Phillippe is rumoured to be taking on the role of the Iron Fist, which would also be another odd choice from Marvel. Once again, he would not be my first choice, I would go for someone at least 15 years younger, but who knows? Maybe they know what they're doing. As far as TV goes, Philippe hasn't had any hits, but with a Marvel script and director he could flourish.
