The unthinkable has happened. The X-Men are finally coming home to Marvel Studios. But what will this new and Uncanny X-Men look like? Here’s HipZOMJoint’s Role Call 32: CASTING DISNEY’s UNCANNY X-MEN!
Bryan Cranston as Professor X
Cranston is a fantastic actor deserving of a franchise. He’s played the villain and the hero while taking on the role of a mentor. Perfect for a new older Xavier.
Richard Madden as Cyclops
Madden has the right look to play the super serious team leader of the X-Men. The Game Of Thrones vet would be a fine addition to the new X-cast.
Evan Rachel Wood was born to play Jean Grey. She has the beauty and the poise to play Jean.
Lauren Cohan as Rogue
Cohan is everyone’s favorite southern belle on The Walking Dead. She could finally bring the right kind of spunk needed to play Rogue.
Joel Edgerton as Beast
Edgerton has shown he can play the wimpy brainy guy and the athletic fighter throughout his filmography. He would be a great choice to play Beast.
Iko Uwais as Nightcrawler
Uwais is the best action star you have never heard of. His fighting choreography in the Raid franchise is a work of art and would lend itself perfectly to Nightcrawler!
Kat Graham as Storm
The Vampire Diaries Kat Graham has an exotic look to bring us a new fresh take on Storm.
Sam Claflin as Gambit
Forget Channing Tatum! Give us Claflin as the cocky raging Cajun, Gambit! Claflin is no stranger to big franchises having starred in The Hunger Games as Finnick Odair.
Liam Hemsworth as Colossus
To play the part of the young Russian powerhouse you need a young powerhouse actor. Why not Independence Day Resurgence’s Liam Hemsworth?
Sarah Hyland as Kitty Pryde
For Kitty you need someone wide eyed and innocent but also looks like she can throw down at any moment. Why not Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland.
Scott Eastwood as Wolverine
The son of legendary actor Clint Eastwood has played the leading back up character throughout most of his filmography up until the point. This would be a great opportunity for him to land a role as big as Wolverine. The fan art above gives us a good impression of what he’d look like.
David Morrissey as Magneto
Morrissey’s frightening take on the role of the Governor on the Walking Dead was great. Now just imagine that commanding voice as the Master of Magnetism!
Hafbor Julius Björnsson as Juggernaut
If you seen Game Of Thrones, you know this beast of a man as The Mountain. Nuff said.
Sofia Boutella as Mystique
The Mummy’s Boutella is as graceful as a dancer as she is a fighter. She would make a fantastic Mystique.
David Harbour as Sabertooth
Don’t get it twisted, Harbour isn’t that chubby sheriff from Stranger Things anymore. He’s bulked up to be the next Hellboy and would look very menacing as the new Sabertooth!
Lin Shaye as Cassandra Nova
Shaye practically carries the Insidious franchise on her back. The amazing actress would make a very imposing Cassandra Nova, the evil sister of Professor X!
