At this point in the MCU, it would be very difficult to see other stars of Hollywood in the person of the mighty heroes that make up this universe, but the story could have been very different, as there were other actors who were to play the Avengers original.
Without a doubt, Robert Downey Jr. he was born to play Tony Starkbecause it is like to be looking at the life of the actor on the screen, however, before that he will stay with the paper, various actors audicionaron to be the next Iron Man, among them, Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman and even Nicolas Cage, thankfully none of them passed the tests.
It is as well that Jon Favreau decided to give it a vote of confidence to Downey Jr. and he was not wrong, since the actor managed to do a great impersonation of Iron Man and opened the door to the MCU.
If well, the role of Thor will like a ring on a finger to Chris Hemsworth, before the actor, the main candidate of the study to become the God of Thunder was Daniel Craig, but the commitments that I already had the star with the saga of James Bond led him to reject the role.
For that reason the study also looked at Channing Tatum, Charlie Hunnam, Alexander Skarsgård and Joel Kinnaman to stay with the paper, but none of them met the characteristics that the character demanded, till they came to Hemsworth and managed to take over the character.
Chris Evans was always the favorite of the study to become Steve Rogers, however, the actor rejected on several occasions the role, so Marvel had to flip to the other side to find his next great hero.
It is so Channing Tatum, Alexander Skarsgård, John Krasinski, Sam Worthington and Will Smith were a few of the actors that auditioned, the latter two being the most came to getting the role, fortunately for the study, Chris Evans ended up accepting the role and the story had a happy outcome.
Before that Mark Ruffalo will take the role, Edward Norton embodied in this powerful Avenger in the movie, ‘The Incredible Hulk’, but creative differences with Marvel led him to abandon the role, so that the study found in Ruffalo to your perfect replacement, and Norton has been forgotten.
Incredible as it may seem, Scarlett Johansson was not the first choice of Marvel to impersonate Natasha Romanoff, because, Emily Blunt occupied that place, however, prior commitments prevented him from accepting the role, so that this ended up in the hands of Johansson, however, also audicionaron, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman, who ended up staying with the role of Jane Foster.
Despite being considered the Avenger, less popular, Hawkeye has proven to be a key piece of the team, but Jeremy Renner was on the verge of running out of this character, as that the favorite was, Jensen Ackles, however, the commitments that had the actor with ‘Supernatural’, led him to reject the paper and this was placed in the hands of Renner.
It is as well that there were other actors who were to play the Avengers original, fortunately for fans, the stars chosen were correct, since they are the ones that have managed to make of the MCU, one of the worlds films more popular than currently exist.
