Marvel has generally had a smooth run with the MCU, in spite of a couple knocks. If they could do everything over again they’d clearly change a couple of things like The Infinity Gauntlet making a cameo in Thor, or throwing Mark Ruffalo in The Incredible Hulk and keeping away from the Ed Norton disaster altogether. We have here, 8 such Marvel actors who were cast in wrong roles and who they should’ve played….
8. Jaimie Alexander
Alexander has been stealing scenes in the Thor motion pictures for some time now. She is extraordinary in the role of the badass warrior Sif. However, she’s frequently side-lined for greater characters and it’s baffling that time is detracted from her for a scene where Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth pretend to be pulled into each other. On the other hand, had she played Jane Foster, it would’ve done her justice.
7. Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke was the only aspect in Iron Man 2 that worked, and even then, he was sadly wasted. Whiplash is innately a sort of weak scoundrel, so while the appeal he brought to the role propped up the film a bit, there’s not much he could have done. Rourke was evidently angry at the editing as well. He felt they destroyed his execution by focussing more on the heroes. Taking a look at the last motion picture, it’s difficult to oppose this idea. Looking at his brilliance, he should’ve played Thanos.
