With Age of Apocalypse up next for the X-Men movies and talks of recasting some of the roles with younger versions. The ladies of TFP wanted to give our votes for who should be casted in this roles.
She is from Africa, specifically Kenya which is where Storm is from, she already has the accent. I can see her with white hair and blue contacts. I think she could pull off the punk look or her first appearance look. Lupita has that regal nature to her as evident by her Oscar speech. She proved to have incredible acting talent in 12 Years a Slave, she has already acted with Magneto. Let us just hope she does not suffer from the Oscar does not make you a good superhero curse many of the females suffer from like Hallie Berry.
Bryce Dallas Howard
She would be a great Jean Grey, one she is a natural red head. She also has some great acting roles, she was the wife in Terminator Salvation so she proved that she can handle a bit of action. Howard was the bitchy girl in The Help, which proves she play the stuck up element of Jean Grey. Just look at that picture you could just see her as the cheerleader girl next door which is so Jean. Next to (insert name) as Scott they would just look perfect, like the perfect couple, just as Jean and Scott should.
We could not agree on anyone to be Scott because out of the younger actors no one really stands out. James Marsden was such a perfect Scott it is hard to find anyone to top him, with some make-up to make him look younger they could just bring him back. If you have any suggestions for Scott Summers please let us know.
As we all know Star Wars: Episode VII is currently filming in London,even though they are in production they are still adding cast members. Academy Award Winner Lupita Nyong’o has joined the cast. Rumors have been speculating for months that she was in talks to join the cast, well I guess they are true.
They have also casted Gwendoline Christie who plays Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones. Christie is also set to appear in Mockingjay Part 2, which is due out next year.
“I could not be more excited about Lupita and Gwendoline joining the cast of Episode VII,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “It’s thrilling to see this extraordinarily talented ensemble taking shape.”
Since we know that the extended universe it not going to play a part in these films and if it does it will be very limited has Lucasfilms not released anything about the characters these talented ladies will be playing. Since I happen to watch Game of Thrones, I would put money on Christie playing a Jedi.
We will of course keep you posted on anymore Star Wars news. The new movie is expected out December 18th, 2015.
