Cast This: Ms. Marvel

Feb. 14, 2014by: Niki Stephens

Ready for some casting today?

Theres been rumors that Ms. Marvel would make her debut in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. In fact, it might be the last big news we get on the film as they have already begun shooting in Johannesburg. The only actress weve heard that is up for the part is the oh-so badass Katee Sackhoff. But if the rumors on that one arent true then who would you want to see as the character?

Carol Danvers has evolved dramatically since her first appearance in 1977 as Ms. Marvel. In 2012, the character took over the Captain Marvel name along with a new costume. Whats interesting is that Danvers is in the comic version of Age of Ultron as Captain Marvel. However, it has been said by Marvels Kevin Feige that the storyline for the film is not based on the comic. Theres also the fact that theyve only been addressing the character as Ms. Marvel, not Captain Marvel which might be due to the fact that they dont want to confuse people with two captains: Captain America, Captain Marvel. Though, I think it would be easy enough to follow along with.

Lets get serious though, folks. Ever since they mentioned Sackhoffs name in conjunction with Ms. Marvel, thats all I see. But if they want to go with someone else (boo) then, which beautiful, kick ass ladies, could do the job? One that I thought of while making a sandwich was Margot Robbie. She was terrific in WOLF OF WALL STREET and would look great in the old costume or the new one. Many of you have suggested Yvonne Strahovski (CHUCK). Im okay with that option though I kind of would like to save her for a Cloak and Dagger movie/series if it ever happens.

Get to it and cast away!

RESULTS FROM PREVIOUS 'CAST THIS': Venom:

1. Timothy Olyphant 2. Jon Bernthal 3. Channing Tatum

The results on the previous installment of Cast This were very mixed. The three guys that got the most response for the role of Venom were Timothy Olyphant, Jon Bernthal, and Channing Tatum. One of these is not like the other You guys seemed to think that Tatum could be convincing as Eddie Brock. Im not doubting you, but I dont see it at this moment. While I love Olyphant, Id rather use him for Carnage if that happens. Bernthal is likely the best pick here. Hes definitely got Brocks attitude down. Im not sure the age they are looking at for the character. If there were a fourth place, Aaron Paul would have taken it. Id actually be up for that but hed have to beef up some.

Katee Sackhoff is unimaginative.

She played a kickass pilot already. It's like when people say Jaimie Alexander should've been Wonder Woman. Come on.

Katheryn Winnick from the TV show Vikings.

Y'know what? I actually wouldn't mind if they used the Captain Marvel version of the character and just called her Ms. Marvel for the movie. Someone like Nichole Beharie or Paula Patton. Or even just cast a black actress as Carol Danvers. I mean, Zoe Saldana is the only black actress with a major role in any Marvel movie, and they changed her green instead...

if they're skewing 30-ish, Emily Blunt, Yvonne Strahovski or Anna Torv are all fine choices.

There should only be 1 choice... Margot Robbie

If that means puting pause on productions to wait for her schedule to clear THEN DAMNIT THAT'S WHAT YOU DO!

Yup even if it means the rest of the cast walks...

Lol, jokes aside, SHE WOULD BE PEREFECT - and if not for Mrs. Marvel then Mrs. Fantastic aka Invisible Woman, but only if Marvel gets the rights back.

This is going to sound strange.

I think Anna Chlumsky would be a good choice. She's not exactly a babe like all of the other suggestions, but I think she would do well in the part. We need to avoid casting based on hotness alone.

Margot Robbie is a really good pic. I think she would need to buff up a lot to take on the role, and while yes she is a proven great actress I'd rather see them fill this role with talent that will be true to the character rather than go the Wonder Woman route and get a really hot girl to be in a skimpy outfit for 2 hours. And keep in mind, Margot Robbie has only been proven in one role which a dramatic/comedic role.

Sackhoff could be good too. But I worry she would only be able to play

Sackhoff could be good too. But I worry she would only be able to play the role as Starbuck. I know Ms. Marvel is tough, but there's more to the character than just being an ass-kicking superhero. I don't think Sackhoff is a strong enough actor to pull off those other sides of the character.

My vote is for Emily Blunt, after seeing her in movies like Adjustment Bureau and the trailers for "Edge of Tomorrow" I know she could take on the action portion of the role. But seeing her in movies like 5 Year Engagement I know she'd be able to hang with RDJ too.

I've always wanted to see an older, more experienced Ms. Marvel that could run with the likes of RDJ and Ruffalo so my vote would lie with Kate Winslet.

Katheryn Winnick or Abbie Cornish also.

I'm one of those...when you give me a name I like...I don't see much else...like Viggo for Strange. I didn't look beyond that until the Depp story came out. So, I'm still in the Katee Sackhoff camp - she was great in BSG and a badass in Riddick...if you ignore the strange scene where Riddick said he'd kill everyone and effectively "rape" her...to which she raises an eyebow in a...oooooooh...that's kinda hot way.

Emily Blunt...by a landslide.

Could there be a better person for this role? A woman who has acting chops, likes to be cast in genre movies, and has the physicality for the part.. Dye her hair blonde and she's good to go. Give this woman a franchise Marvel!

Katie Sackhoff? She can't act. Yvonne Strahovski? Kirsten Bell? Can you guys at least name a blonde actress that can actually act? I'll give you Margot Robbie. I was really impressed with her in Wolf of Wall Street, especially for only being 23 years old.

She's coming off of The Wolf of Wall Street with a lot of attention. She's beautiful, young, and has a lot of potential to expand.

Why "Marvel"?

I think it's a mistake to include a character in a Marvel movie/comic book/TV cartoon who's actual name is "Marvel". Seriously, how much more do these guys need to pimp their brand? They even included it in The Avengers' title...like anybody would confuse it with that 1998 flop.

They had to include the "Marvel's" in that for legal reasons because of that flop. Believe it or not that flop was based on a very popular 1960's British television show. Why else would you think it's called "Avengers Assemble" in the UK?

Katee Sackoff

She already has the look and has plenty of experience playing a brash fighter pilot as Starbuck from "Battlestar Galatica". I cannot see anyone else in that role right now.

I'm a big Carol Danvers fan. I loved her stint in a leadership role in the Mighty Avengers. She's not just a strong female character, she's a flat out strong and well developed character. Ever since I read the idea of Yvonne Strahovski as Danvers right here from a fellow schmoe I haven't been able to picture anyone else at all in the role. Her looks are spot on, she's gorgeous enough to have some great awkward sexual tension scenes with Stark, and with a good enough script I think she can

For Ms. Marvel, I would choose Emily Blunt. She's a terrific actress and knows how to kick ass and looks extremely well doing it.

Would love to see her join the Marvel crew.

Still a stupid idea.....

I haven't even heard the rumor, so I'm not sure if this is just a writer trying to come up with an interesting column to keep himself relevant. That said, I can't imagine anything dumber than taking an already ridiculously overstuffed movie (i.e. all of the original Avengers, two new ones, a new bad guy, another new bad guy, then yet another new bad guy who becomes a good guy) and then deciding to add YET ANOTHER superhero with a backstory.

Seriously...at some point this becomes too

Seriously...at some point this becomes too ridiculous for even Wheddon and the folks at Marvel to make sense of. If they screw this movie up, it will make the third (and what should be the best) Avengers movie anti-climatic. People shouldn't assume this movie can't be bad just because the folks at Marvel have their stamp on it.

How is something like this keeping someone "relevant"? Cast This is meant to stir up conversation. It's meant to be fun. Doesn't matter who it's about and doesn't matter if the character in question will or won't actually be cast in a film. Thanks for being the guy that takes something fun and uses it as a platform to spit some venom and take a jab at a writer that was merely putting something out there for folks to read and enjoy.
