Not many topics are more popular amongst comic book movie fans than fan castings. Marvel & DC fans just can’t stop connecting their favorite actors with the roles of superheroes (and villains) who still haven’t gotten a chance to appear on a big screen (or just need a recast).

We’ve been collecting fans casting on Marvel & DC roles for a while now and came up with a list of the most interesting ones! Some are actually pretty good, while other, well, fans just love to hate them!

Amber Heard as Emma Frost

Ambear Heard as Emma Frost 2

Emma Frost is known for her striking appearance and blonde hair, which aligns with Amber Heard’s physical attributes. Heard has also demonstrated versatility in her acting career (and private life), which could translate well to portraying the complex and sometimes morally ambiguous character of Emma Frost. Casting Heard could draw interest from fans who appreciate her previous work.

Yvonne Strahovski as Emma Frost

Yvonne Strahovski is recognized for her standout performances in several notable roles. She portrayed Sarah Walker in the TV series ‘Chuck,’ Serena Joy Waterford in ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ and Hannah McKay in ‘Dexter.’ Yvonne Strahovski would be an ideal choice to play Emma Frost in the MCU for several reasons. First, she bears quite a resemblance to the character, and second, she has experience portraying morally ambiguous characters. One of her greatest strengths in acting are her ability to portray both intelligent and manipulative person.

Madelyn Cline as Rogue

Madelyn Cline as Rogue 2

Madelyn Cline has been acting since 2011 but the actress rose to sudden prominence with her roles in ‘Boy Erased,’ Glass Onion,’ ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Outer Banks.’ Cline has shown her range in different roles, from the adventurous Sarah Cameron in “Outer Banks” to more dramatic performances. This versatility is crucial for portraying Rogue’s complex character, who struggles with her powers and identity.

This is likely why Cline is one of the top picks for the role of Rogue when it comes to fans.

Alexandra Daddario as Rogue

Alexandra Daddario as Rogue 2

Alexandra Daddario has had several notable roles in both film and television, starting with the ‘Percy Jackson’ adaptation, ‘True Detective, and ‘The White Lotus.’ She is however oddly absent from superhero roles unless you count voicing Lois Lane in ‘Superman: Man of Tomorrow’ and ‘Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths.’

Now fans want to see Daddario in the MCU, as none other than Rogue. Daddario has striking physical features that could match Rogue’s iconic look from the comics. Her piercing blue eyes and dark hair (which she could dye to include Rogue’s signature white streak) would help her visually embody the character.

Ella Balinska as Black Cat

6 2

Balinska’s most notable roles are those from ‘Charlie’s Angel’s’ (2019) and ‘Resident Evil’ (2022). She proved that she can handle both action roles and emotional roles. Her stunning figure is also one of the reasons why fans would love to see her as Black Cat.

The top contender is still Sydney Sweeney, still Ella Balinska is worth taking into consideration as well.

Jason Isaacs as Magneto

6

I have to admit this fan casting heavily depends on Jason Isaacs rocking that white wig. The actor is probably most known for his role as Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter film series, but he really would be a good fit for Magneto since he already has experience playing a villain, and has voiced numerous superheroes (and villains) in animated projects.

Ian Somerhalder as Beyonder

Ian Somerhalder as Beyonder 2

Beyonder is rumored to appear as a villain in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars,’ and although this information was not confirmed by official sources, fans already decided to fan-cast several popular faces to play him. The top choice landed on Ian Somerhalder, most notably known for his roles in The Vampire Diaries, V-Wars, Interns, and Young Americans.

He looks like Beyonder and also knows how to play Sardonic characters.

Millie Bobby Brown as Kitty Pryde

Millie Bobby Brown as Kitty Pryde 1

Brown rose to global fame with her role in ‘Stranger Things,’ and since then fans have been consistently fan-casting her as Kitty Pryde. Kitty Pryde is often depicted as a young, vibrant character. Millie’s youthful energy and charisma make her a great fit. With the upcoming live-action X-Men reboot on the horizon, who knows?

Hayden Christensen as Doctor Doom

Christensen made a grand return last year to his most notable role, that of Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader in the first season of ‘Ahsoka.’ Rumors have it that the actor will reprise his role, although with much more screen time and a larger overall role in the show. While we wait for ‘Ahsoka’ season 2, fans have been speculating how great Christensen would be in the MCU as Doctor Doom. Christensen already proved that he can carry the most iconic fictional villain with relative ease.

Keanu Reeves as Ghost Rider

Keanu Reeves has earned a reputation as one of the kindest actors in Hollywood, yet he’s no stranger to action and supernatural roles. Since his appearance in ‘Constantine,’ fans have often imagined him as a perfect fit for the role. With rumors circulating about a Ghost Rider movie or Midnight Sons-focused project, this fantasy might soon become a reality. Reeves possesses the brooding and dark persona needed to excel in such a role.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Doctor Doom

Coster Waldau as Doom

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is in recent times, most popular for portraying Jaime Lannister from planetary popular TV show ‘Game of Thrones.’ While his tenure on the show ended with the final season, ever since then fans have been imagining him as Doctor Doom through various fan art and concept trailers. Waldau won’t be the first ‘Game of Thrones’ character to crossover to the MCU as both Kit Harington and Richard Madden portrayed characters in ‘Eternals.’

Waldau has both the range and physique to play the popular villain. He is just sympathetic enough to make for a perfect “grey” character in every sense of the word.

Johnny Depp as Mephisto

Johnny Depp as Mephisto

Mephisto was so far only mentioned in the MCU, but as the studio focuses on magic, Midnight Sons, and similar themes, chances are big he’s going to debut soon. Johnny Depp is by far the most popular fan-casting for the character, and now that the actor is once again in the good graces of Disney, it might happen.

Dev Patel as Kang the Conqueror

Josh Holloway Wolverine 1

When Jonathan Majors was accused of assault by his former flame, we knew that the studio had two choices at that point, recast Kang or eliminate Kang as the villain completely. When Majors was found guilty and sentenced to probation, this only confirmed speculations.

Now apparently studio is moving forward with Kang but the character will likely be recast and fans have put forward none other than Dev Patel. Patel was also in the running to play Fantastic Four’s Reed Richards before the role ultimately went to Pedro Pascal.

Giancarlo Esposito as Doom

Giancarlo Esposito is TV’s most popular villain in recent times ever since ‘Breaking Bad.’ The actor stated several months ago that he would like to play Professor X, before announcing to the world he has been cast in the MCU but not as Professor X. He also stated that his character will get its own MCU show. Naturally, since fans have been speculating for quite some time what a good Dr. Doom Esposito would have been, we can only hope that this is indeed the role he was cast in.

Keke Palmer as Rogue

Keke Palmer Rogue

Keke has been a number-one fan casting for the role for quite some time now. Since the rumors of X-Men finally being introduced to the MCU via their own live-action project are getting louder, it’s not so unreasonable to expect that Keke is being eyed for the role of one of the most notable mutants. Keke herself even acknowledged the fan cast via fan art that showcases her as the mutant.

Ryan Gosling as Ghost Rider

Ryan Gosling himself stated on several instances that he would like to play MCU’s Ghost Rider, and well the fans did the rest. According to reports, Gosling was already cast in some kind of mysterious role in the MCU, and there are also reports of the Ghost Rider project being in the works, you connect the dots. Several months ago, Gosling was rumored to play Nova in the upcoming live-action show.

Sydney Sweeney as Black Cat

Sydney Sweeney already has one superhero role behind her, but it didn’t end so great. Now fans are hoping that Sydney will get another chance to play a superpowered character in the MCU, as Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat, anti-hero/villaines and ally of Spider-Man. The latest rumors that Sweeney was cast in the role certainly further helped matters.

Henry Cavill as Cyclops

Fans have been speculating about DCEU’s Superman joining the MCU for quite some time. At first, he was connected with the introduction of Captain Britain in the MCU, but lately, after the release of ‘X-Men 97’ and the upcoming ‘X-Men’ MCU reboot, more and more fans are expressing their interest in seeing Henry Cavill as the new Cyclops! Also, there are quite a few rumors talking about that!

Miley Cyrus as Rogue

After years of waiting for good ‘X-Men’ related content, we finally got what we were waiting for – ‘X-Men 97’! The remake of 1992’s ‘X-Men: The Animated Series’ was an absolute hit among the Marvel fans! Following that and the release of the upcoming ‘X-Men’ live-action reboot, fans are giving their ideas for the roles of our favorite Mutants! By far, one of the most popular ones is Miley Cyrus as Rogue. This will hardly happen, but still, every time someone mentions Miley joining the ranks of the ‘X-Men’, social platforms start getting hot!

Josh Holloway as Wolverine

Many different actors played the roles of Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman over the years. But one guy stood above the time all the way since 2000, Hugh Jackman, aka Wolverine. After two decades of playing Wolverine, everyone thought he was done – and what does Hugh Jackman do? He plays Wolverine once again in the upcoming ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ – 24 years since he first took on “the mantle.” A legend! Still, at some point, we will probably see a new Wolverine, and recently, ‘Lost’s Josh Holloway is one of the names that pops out pretty often!
