Tell Us Now: 13 Questionable Marvel Casting Decisions
Not everything can be perfect, even Marvel movies. So we asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What was the worst casting in the MCU?” Although there’s a debate about what constitutes being within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (especially with Spider-Man: No Way Home), we decided to accept most Marvel answers. Taking out answers that seem rooted in unconscious biases instead of actual opinions, we were left with the most common answers in two main categories: actors who don’t add much to the role and actors who were underutilized and should have been cast as a larger part of the series.
Overall, we were surprised by how many people genuinely enjoyed all the castings with no complaints. Although we mostly agree, it’s the internet and it was made for people to argue viciously with each other. So here are thirteen characters that in hindsight Marvel probably should have reconsidered. Let us know if you disagree or if a character is missing.
