According to *shudders* Perez Hilton, Rumours of Hawkeyes recasting are greatly exaggerated. He reported,
“Our sources tell us that the recasting rumors are completely untrue and that he will indeed return to the silver screen as Hawkeye! Phew! And, though it had been reported that some comments Jeremy made pissed off the execs over at Marvel, we’re told he’s still “very much a part of the Marvel family.”
While his “journalistic” credibility is questionable he’s usually on the mark when it comes to Hollywood gossip and rumours.
Gina Carano as Wonder Woman?
Second up is the awesome Gina Carano who recently expressed interest in playing a “superhero” in the future in an interview with Collider. While saying she hasn’t auditioned for any roles she did go on to say;
” There have been talks about some different characters. That’s a dream to put on a costume and be a whole other level of character, but I think that…we’re looking at a whole bunch of different things right now. There’s always the possibility that some day I will be a comic book character that I’ll play and I’m not sure who that’s going to be. It would be very fun and fascinating. We’ll just have to see where my career is going to go. I love emotions, I love drama, I love comedy and I also want to take action up to another level, I love comics.”
She then went on to say;
“I think it’s important to find a director who has a good vision behind it and, like, from Sucker Punch – I absolutely love that movie. So I take that and I say, “Okay, it’s a bunch of females and it’s very fantasy driven,” but if you take a couple of women who are very realistic and could actually pull off some amazing fights, maybe put a darker twist to the story to it and make it very cool and believable, that would be something I’d of course be interested in.”
Now while this isn’t anything major and should be taken with a pinch of salt, Zack Snyder directed Sucker Punch. The same Zack Snyder is currently directing Man of Steel starring Ginas real life boyfriend Henry Cavill and indeed the same Zack Snyder who is rumoured to be doing the Justice League movie….could we see her as Wonder Woman perhaps?
Is the MCU about to be Rocked?
Finally Collider also caught up with Marvel studios head Kevin Feige and asked if he had ever considered casting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to which he replied.
“I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. I’m a gigantic fan of his, I think he’s incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven’t really met him … He’s awesome in Pain & Gain, he was great in G.I. Joe, he’s really just an amazing human being. His Twitter’s always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel Universe somewhere, someday”.
Further fanning the flames The Rock immediately took to twitter and posted.
“Thank U @Marvel President Kevin Feige for the nod. I’ll be ready. #RockAsCage #HeroForHire”.
Could we be seeing The Rock lay the smackdown on the Marvel universe?
