From Doctor Strange's traditional hand gesture, I would've said Ronnie James Dio, but then... Mortality...


I don't think you can cast an A-list rocker for a B-list superhero.

Michelle Rodriguez would make a very intriguing Psylocke.

Neither British nor Asian, and as much as I'm keen on seeing multicultural takes on characters, those are both kind of crucial to her character.

However, she'd make a FANTASTIC Renee Montoya/Question.
Brwoooomp!

So...Psylocke's major character trait is the fact she's a British Asian?
Woiw. I always saw her as the hardcore Ninja Assassin with purple psi-blades. I didn't even know she was British! Or Asian, really.

It's...complicated to say the least, but in a nutshell, Psylocke was a white Englishwoman (Captain Britain's sister, even) who had her mind swapped with a Japanese assassin.

If he wasn't, yannow, dead, I'd cast Vincent Price as Doc Strange, since The King drew him to look like Vincent Price icon-arcee.gif

This!

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

And that's not even the most convoluted part of her origin.

Let's just say Hawkman has it easy.

Wasn't she randomly green for a while? Is she still green?

Come to think of it, Psylocke and Cable were pretty much everything wrong with '90s comics in two convenient gender-specific packages.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Patrick Dempsey for Stephen Strange. This must happen! Plus he's said in an interview he'd be very interested in the role if it were ever offered to him. Zack Quinto as Namor. If there was ever an "Astro City" film I'd love if Jon Hamm played Samaritan. I know most fans want to see him as Superman, but this to me would be the next best thing. Also I'd cast Andrew Lincoln as Reed Richards in the next "Fantastic Four" film.

I don't see how anyone but Jim Carrey could pull off Plastic Man.
