One of the things I didn’t like about old Xmen movies was that they never did a roster more comic accurate. I think a way to distant them from the old movies & properly flesh out the characters would be to start with a young version of the original team. So here’s my idea of the 1st roster of the Xmen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
- Professor X: I see this version as a sophisticated & empathic man with a vision of creating a safe haven for mutants and tries to make his dream a reality and I think we need an Xavier who’s a mix of McAvoy & Stewart and I think Jason Issacs would be that.
- Cyclops: Cyclops never got the love he deserves we saw his origins twice and yet we still haven’t seen him the true leader he is. I fell in love with Ansel in Baby Driver and I think he could truly portray the everyman and leader Scott is. - Jean Grey: Given her experience for playing a strong, independent woman with troubling psychic abilities, Holland Roden would make a great Jean and a proper Phoniex.
- Beast: After seeing him as a werewolf, I thought Sinqa Walls would make a great Beast. In the movies Hank’s been the nice guy/geek of the group but we never got to see Hank’s life as a star jock. I would love his mutation grow over the course of seasons into the blue fuzzball we all love. - Iceman: The comedian of the group, Dave Franco has a history in comedy & it would be a compelling to see him struggle with being a gay mutant. - Angel: I feel like Angel always got the short end in the movies. He should the pretty boy of the group, I think Dacre Montgomery would do amazing to show the transition from spoiled brat to true hero. Plus I want a proper and badass Archangel.
