Advanced apologies to those CBR forum mods on my f-list, but that website is still filled with idiocy nearly 2 decades later. >.<

15 MCU Roles That Absolutely Need To Be Recast

Some of them, I agree with. Others, not so much. Let's go down the list together.

15. Captain America
Just because Evans is retiring from superhero movies (and has expressed wanting to do more directing, less acting, NOT moving onto more "serious" movies thank you very much), doesn't mean you can re-cast Captain America. Move the mantle forward, sure, but making Captain America a legacy title is not recasting. Don't be an idiot.

14. Hawkeye
Again, legacy character DOES NOT EQUAL RECAST. All we're doing is bringing in more diversity, and the world sorely needs more female superheroes.

13. Ant-man
Again, bringing in a new character is not recasting. You keep saying that word, but I don't think you know what it means. And really? I don't think we need more Ant-man. Instead, let's get more Wasp action.

12. Iron Man
First, RDJ will probably get digitally remastered if he continues to play Tony Stark. Second, it's gonna be really fucking weird seeing someone not RDJ picking up the Tony Stark character. However, I agree that they will have to replace RDJ at some point, because MCU ages slower than the real world and sooner or later, it's just not going to fly. But I think they're better off just putting off any more Iron Man rather than re-casting to continue the story. Also, how does putting Don Cheadle into the Iron Man suit solve anything when Cheadle is about the same age? Don't be idiotic.

11. Jane Foster
Now this is literally the first actual correct use of the world "recast". Do we need Jane Foster in MCU? Probably not. But if they insist on keeping Jane Foster, then please, yes, find someone with more chemistry with Hemsworth. Ugh.

10. Starhawk
It was a cameo. I don't really know how you can judge someone's acting chomps from a cameo. I honestly thought it was good natured enough of Stallone to even bother showing up for the filming and wearing silly costumes. Also, no desire to see more of Starhawk, so no, I do not think there's a need to recast.

9. Iron Fist
The first MCU flop was The Incredible Hulk. But, moving past that, yes, Iron Fist needs to be recast ASAP.

8. Nick Fury
Fuck you. There's not enough representation as is. And it's Samuel L. Jackson. Why would you recast? What is wrong with you?

7. Loki
The only real "need" here is that Tom Hiddleston has come out and already said he doesn't want to continue on as Loki, very similar to Chris Evans' stance. But, unlike Steve Rogers, who is human and must look a certain way, Loki is a godly shapeshifter who really can look however he damn well pleases. So recasting is easily acceptable.

6. Hulk
Again, do you even know what "recast" means? Hulk has already been recast. And bringing in Red Hulk and She-Hulk is not a recast. What is wrong with you?

5. Elektra
Look, bad script does not mean the actor is bad. And if the actor isn't bad a recast isn't going to solve shit if the script continues to suck. Veto.

4. Groot
Do you even know how voice tuning works? No, you will be able to recognize that something sounds off. Listen to classic Alvin and new Alvin from the Chipmunks franchise. They are still different. Yes, we can tell. Shut up. Also, Vin Diesel as Groot is awesome and should not be touched.

3. Cassie Lang
Now you're just being stupid. If your only hope is for more Cassie Lang in future Ant-man stuff, just remember the tiny kid in Iron Man 2 is supposed to be Peter Parker. By the time they're ready for teenage Cassie Lang, her actress will become age appropriate and all will be well. Recast unnecessary.

2. Aunt May
Fuck you. No. Marisa Tomei is perfect as Aunt May. There is no reason why Aunt May should be an elderly grandmother when she is Peter's Aunt. The comics just are straight up wrong about the age of Aunt May and Marisa Tomei is much more age appropriate. Not to mention she is an awesome actor and everyone has already accepted this is MCU's Aunt May. Suck it.

1. Spiderman
Again, DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT RECAST MEANS?! Wanting Miles Morales is not a recasting issue. And also, fuck you. Don't tell me you want more representation when you just suggested replacing SAMUEL L. JACKSON WITH A WHITE MAN. (See Nick Fury.) Fuck you.
