This is my third and final fan cast until a new movie is announce, or motivation becomes a siren's call and I cannot resist. These selections are purely subjective and each fan's perfect casting changes with each individual. If you truly disagree with any of my picks, please comment about who you rather play that particular part.Enjoy!

Mary Jane Watson (Marvel)

Possible- Shailene Woodley, Bella Thorne, Sami Gayle, Kat McNarmara

Why- We as an audience have been without this character since Kirsten Dunst in 2007's Spider-Man 3 and I personally cannot wait what Jon Watts does with her. Granted I only saw this actress once, or twice but she she looks the part. Also in this Spider-Man reboot all the ages must closely resemble one another. This was a hard decision and I am truly split either way.

Top Pick - Bella Thorne, she just barely beat out Kat. I am still not sure which one would be better.

Carnage- Cletus Kasady (Marvel)

Possible- Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Why- Okay you are right if you think this is wishful thinking to have Carnage in MCU. He is Spider-Man's darkest villain and would make for an incredible movie. There are multiple ways to bring Carnage without Eddie Brock. I personally believe Marvel are going to incorporate Flash Thompson, Agent Venom in the MCU. This actor needs to be completely insane, and have a devilish grin to convincingly portray Cletus.

Top Pick- Jake Gyllenhaal, I think he has the right look and the acting chops to be truly horrifying with hair-dye bright red(almost orange).

Zatanna Zatara(DC)

Possible- Kaya Scodelario, Emilia Clarke, Jessica Lowndes,Victoria Justice

Why- Zatanna is super powerful and can take Superman to his knees with magic. She is the epitome of strength mixed with sex appeal, with a healthy dose of brains to go along with the all ready impressive array of magic tricks. All of these actresses have the look, but I believe one has whole package. I do firmly think that we will see her very soon in either Justice League Dark, or an unannounced movie.

Top Pick- Kaya Scodelario, she seems like she could do the character justice (league dark) in her acting abilities. These body types in the comics are just way too crazy to even attempt to find an actress with a similar body. Jessica Lowndes was a close second purely on her appearance. ( I know horrible)

Gwen Stacy (Marvel)

Possible- Chloë Grace Moretz, Maisie Williams, Saoirse Ronan, Nikola Peltz

Why- This character in recent years has numerous comics about her many adventures as a masked hero. If I were Marvel, I would most certainly bring in Mary Jane and Gwen for an interesting dynamic with them and Peter ( Plus it really has never been done before, Spider-Man 3 stupid dance, Amazing Spider-Man just Gwen) The MCU could really be on a roll if somehow they introduced Gwenpool (I know Fox), but even if they do not, Gwen is a very strong character, with a strong actress needed to match.

Nicola Peltz would be a perfect fit
Nicola Peltz would be a perfect fit

Top Pick- Nicola Peltz, she has the experience,voice, and the look to make a much welcome addition in the MCU.

Valkyrie (Marvel)

Possible- Diane Krueger, Katee Sackoff, Evan Rachel Wood, Charlize Theron

Why- Recent rumors suggest that she will be in Thor: Ragnarok with Thor, and the Hulk. Another interesting fact is she has been on a team called The Defenders, soon to make their debut on Netflix. All of these actresses could play this role, but one stands out at a true action star. She will be battling most likely Cate Blanchett's Enchantresses! (How Exciting!) Also I would tend to go with younger actors/actresses since you never can tell if the popularity would soar and you can use them for years and years.

Top Pick- Katee Sackoff, she is no Captain Marvel, but I surely believe she would make an amazing Valkyrie. All the other actresses on my list would do a stellar job and all they all look part too.

J.Jonah Jameson (Marvel)

Possible- J.K. Simmons( I have to put his name on), Hugh Laurie, Gary Oldman, Denzel Washington ( Yes I know, but I think he would rock the role)

Why- The actor that I chose ( not JK sorry) can play this part with enough nastiness, and also enough heart to make JJJ not the biggest douche in the MCU. I really hope they take inspiration from the Ultimate series.

Top Pick- Hugh Laurie, he is the most obvious choice, unless J.K. Simmons wants to come back. The biggest problem with that is the common audience would more than likely not be able to differentiate the two Spider-Man continuities.

Owlman (DC)

Possible- Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon

Why- I know I swung for the fence on those possible actors and most of the actors I put on these lists I do not care for, but to have some integrity I must put the person I think will do the job the best. Owlman is the antithesis of Batman and when I put it that way, their is only one actor that could play that role.

Top Pick- Matt Damon, seriously how awesome would that be to see Batfleck and Damon do battle!

Hyperion ( Marvel)

Possible- Kellan Lutz, Richard Armitage, Clive Standen, Alexander Ludwig

Why- There's numerous versions of Hyperion to choose form, but for the most part his physical stature and traits has stay similar throughout. The actor I chose is basically if Superman were a really big douchebag and height does matter when choosing characters like this. I really would love to see King Hyperion join the MCU along his fellow Squadron Supreme! Also you can tell I picked two older men and two younger men to see which versions that people reading might like better.

Top Pick- Clive Standen (Rollo) of Vikings would totally drain a game-winning, buzzer beating, three-point shot in overtime if he would get the part! Look at other pictures of Hyperion and be amazed by the resemblance!

Ravager- Rose Wilson (DC)

Possible- Kathryn Winnick, Amanda Seyfried, Brie Larsen, Blake Lively

Why- Deathstroke is one of the biggest villains in any media of all-time. Rose Wilson is Slade's illegitimate daughter, gifted as her father ( it is unknown what actor is playing Deathstroke, or if he even be in it, Scott Eastwood was rumored, but he could be playing Nightwing. I hope Slade is in Suicide Squad.) and what that means simply she is deadly, and she could become one of the few women anti-heroes. The actress that will playing this role will have a blast doing so!

Top Pick- Kathryn Winnick, she is so tough and would be a great female anti-hero!

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you found my choices somewhat intelligent. Feel free to disagree.
