'The Avengers' Movie: Kevin Feige Talks About Recasting; Says It's Possible
In the recent interview with Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige, he talks about the future films he plans for “The Avengers” and talks about the possibility of the original cast being replaced. Everyone has already seen it happen to Spiderman who was replaced by a much younger actor in the recent “The Avengers” movie.
According to reports, “Avengers: Infinity War” marks the completion of Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 which also means the studio will focus on Phase 4. Almost every movie of MCU was a box office hit which can be contributed by the tremendous performances of the cast namely Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, and more. However, Phase 4 may be a project that can happen after some years which probably why the studio is considering a possible recasting.
In an interview with Feige, he said “Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man, and right now I can’t envision anyone else. Chris Evans has embodied Captain America as well as any actor has ever embodied an iconic pop-culture figure like that.” However, he explains that in the history of MCU, they will not be the first cast to be replaced. As mentioned, it has already happened to Spider-Man and they were glad that the audience embraced it.
“And you can look to Sherlock Holmes, James Bond, and Batman as characters that last longer than any one actor playing them. There’s a precedent for it in other franchises that suggests it’s possible.” He added.
However, Feige has assured "The Avengers" fans that this will not happen until after a few more years and after a few more movies. He admits that the decision is really hard especially for the fans. He also believes that there’s probably no one better to play Iron Man or Captain America better than Downey and Evans. So he is sure that the upcoming actors to replace them will have tough acts to follow.
