Making a Hollywood movie is quite a tricky business. There are numerous pieces which have to fit together to make a film, and quite often, things go messy. Directors join a project and then leave, scripts undergo changes, concepts are change, and actors get the revolving door treatment. At times the changes result well and benefit the movie. However, there are times when the other options would have done better. That’s the trouble with moviemaking, one has to take decisions and then hope that those were the right decisions and one of the most critical components of a movie is its cast. There is no way a film will succeed with a terrible cast.
Superhero films are now more popular than at any time in history. Consequently, they also have to deal with a lot of rumors. As soon as a studio announces a new project, the internet goes into a frenzy full of speculations, ideas, assumptions, and doubts, etc. Will this character be a part of the movie? What will be the story like? And then, which actor will play this role? To turn the popular comic book characters into live-action is quite demanding especially when a loyal fandom is involved. Therefore, it is obvious that fans and the media spend a lot of time speculating about the topic.
While there are rumors, it doesn’t surprise us that a lot of the casting rumors end up being fake. Films are not made in a day, and often the impatient followers come up with false stories, irrespective of the credibility or the absence of it, to generate gossip. It is not easy for a reader to distinguish a rumor from real news, especially when the rumors happen to be as much believable as those listed here. Go ahead and have a look at our compilation of 20 casting rumors which seemed logical at the time, but, later turned out to be as real as Drax’s invisibility!
