Back in 2008, Marvel Cinematic Universe arrived on the big screen with the stunning Iron-Man movie, and contrary to what a lot of experts were afraid, the Robert Downey Jr. film not only rocked the box-office, but, it also established a franchise that has been ruling the box office since the last ten years and the way it is growing from strength to strength, we see no reason why the domination will not continue for another ten years.
The shared superhero universe has entertained millions of superhero fans and Marvel Comics lovers all over the world, regaling them with the stories of various characters and superhero teams like The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
So what is the reason behind the incredible success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Apart from their fantastic stories and cool action, it is the brilliant characters.
While the other cinematic universes keep planning their franchise’s future (often even before making the second film), the makers of MCU focus on finding out who would be the best actors to play the fantastic range of Marvel heroes and villains.
Back at the time when Robert Downey Jr. was cast to play Tony Stark, fans were very angry. Now, after ten years, nobody can imagine any other actor playing Iron-Man.
It is not as if every casting choice made by Marvel was a home run, and there have been some casting decisions that have faced fans’ ire over the years, including the efforts at whitewashing and the cinematic characters looking nothing like the comics.
As is the usual practice, such things lead to fans creating their own fan casts for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and some even make predictions about who should be cast.
Take a look at some such cases below!
