What u think of IGN’s picks?
The Rock would be a terrible fit for Luke Cage. I would support Ray Park for Iron Fist
Crews or Billy Brown is fine with me. I wouldn’t mind Rock, but he’d be last on my list
Crews is 95% of people’s first option. But the man himself apparently doesn’t wanna be the character. But maybe since its a show now (a Netflix one at that) he will change his mind.
13 episodes for each show’s first season.
As for casting, it’s going to be a bit tricky.
Whoever is cast for Luke Cage will need to have great chemistry with the talent for both Iron Fist and Jessica Jones. This is why I doubt Crews lands the part - I don’t see him being able to pull off the romantic relationship with Jones. I’d say if he wants it, the roles probably belongs to The Rock if for nothing else than for star power. While it would more than likely be a pay cut, a successful series starring The Rock is going to demand a movie.
I’m not convinced Ray Park can be the front man for a series, though he should definitely be involved in some form. I also don’t like any of IGN’s picks.
So taking everything into account not just talent, but typical Hollywood concerns/patterns and going by some of the ideas from IGN’s articles…
Luke Cage - The Rock
Iron Fist - ???
Jessica Jones - Jennifer Carpenter
Daredevil - Joel Kinneman or Damian Lewis
Barring the reality show which I don’t watch, all his roles are in a comedic context, with little to no serious drama chops needed.
I like Crews as much as the next dude and even helps that he has the look, but I don’t know if the talent is there. And like I said, if Rock wants the gig and can come to a financial agreement w/ Marvel, it’s his - I’m not even going to debate that.
I’d take Brown over Crews and Rock if we’re going from a pure talent standpoint. The issue is can he draw? Wrestling irony put aside Marvel fans are watching regardless of who plays whoever. So are casual folk going to tune in to see Billy Brown? Is he even popular enough in the African-American community to attract that fanbase? As a black dude, I didn’t even know his real name until now. I hate to play that card, but he has to bring something to the table other than a cheaper price tag - regardless how better suited his screen skills are for the role.
terry crews for luke cage is this decades version of lateef crowder for eddy gordo. funny tidbit…lateef was in a stunt group called zero gravity…one of the members actually did some motion cap for eddy.
If Ray Parks can’t be Iron Fist then he should be Steel Serpent. He’s played the lead villain in films before.
Charlie Cox is Daredevil guys. One down, 4 to go. This guy was in random ass flicks and Boardwalk Empire. Can’t really say anything about him. No Michael C. Hall tho
I like the old one better.
New one doesn’t seem like a great strategist he just seems like a self important dick who thinks he’s in the Matrix.
Old one seems like he has seen some shit (because he has) and he is all business.
MJW luke cage, fuck is up?
relevant, and awesome. Thomas Jane Punisher was so underrated…
Unless the black one you’re referring to was the one from the good Avengers cartoon you’re out of your mind.
Black Nick Fury and Old Man Nick Fury have very few differences.
If they replaced Sam Nick in Ultimate, the shows, and the movies with Old Nick Fury, people wouldn’t even be able to tell the differences.
Either that or people would stop bullshitting and blaming the fact that they chose Ultimate Nick to be the appearance being the reason why he wasn’t true to character, when in fact it was the writing and not the character himself.
People always want to point out shit that doesn’t matter because they aren’t the same as they used to be.
Stop acting like a baby.
Everyone shuddup and start talking about how Drew Goddard isn’t writing this anymore :’(
My only issue recently is that Charlie Cox the guy lined up to play Matt Murdock looks too baby faced to play the character in my opinion.
