In the past few years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become something of a who's who when in regard to casting high-profile actors for a varying roles in their bombastic comic book on-screen adventures. Looking back, actors the likes of Michael Douglas, Kurt Russell, Robert Redford, Glenn Close, Samuel L. Jackson, Cate Blanchett and more have assumed the identities of some of the famous comic book publisher's coolest characters. Now, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has named a few more talented individuals he'd like to bring to the MCU, including actors Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. Feige even confirmed while talking to Fandango that he's already met with Pacino.

While not wanting to confirm or deny people's wildest dream casting ideas, Feige did state that we're sure to see more of Hollywood's best and brightest join Marvel's universe as time marches on. Again, while speaking with Fandango, Feige teased, "There are a few [names] that are coming up, actually. I'll keep this spoiler-free, but be assured that there are more surprises of that caliber heading into our universe in the next few films." When asked if Al Pacino was one of the many actors being considred for a role in an upcoming project, Feige laughed and said, "No ... not in this case. Someday, someday, but there are others that I'm thinking of right now." 

Obviously, this begs the question of which iconic stars would you like to see appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Personally, I'd like to see Bruce Willis, Bryan Cranston, Charlize Theron, Denzel Washington, Emma Thompson or John Goodman join the fray. Let us know who you would choose by leaving a comment below.

I like it!

Jeff Bridges and Bill Murray. I'm not sure who they could play, but it would be cool to see them pop up in MCU movies.

Bryan Cranston as Norman Osborne/Green Goblin would be perfect.

Also, if Marvel ever gets the rights to Fantastic Four back, I would love to see Ewan McGregor as Reed Richards/Mr Fantastic.

way back in the day, like late 90s very early 2000s, I would have loved to have seen Richard Gere as Mr Fantastic.

Marvel movies are like all actors dream jobs

Meaning its a surefire $$ maker, its usually a multi-picture contract so its guaranteed work for a few years and its out of anyone's comfort zone so they get to be goofy and have fun while playing larger than life characters.

Thats pretty much the best summation of Marvel from an actor's perspective I've read. Some actors are too high and mighty and stick their nose up at comic movies. But in reality, given the over the topness of the characters, where does an actor seriously get to "play" or have fun more.

Not to mention the character they'd get to play would have tons of reference material to get better sense of who they're playing.
