Marvel Mutants: Children of the Atom. TV series Fan Cast.by dragonknite | created - 16 Mar 2015 | updated - 04 Feb 2016 | Public
Note: not all of these will be a recast. X-men was one the best superhero films out there. I grew up loving X-men due to what it preached. I feel though the films pushed in and wrote off too many characters and provided little to no character development what so ever. which is why this list is kinda a wish list for an X-men TV series that probably would never happen. X-men films could fully reflect on the social issues that the Comics did and the tv series were not dark enough to go fully indepth with it. The themes of X-men are Racism:The Mutants were somewhat like African Americans in the 1960s. As a Britsh Bangaldeshi Muslim I sort understand when ever I encoutner Islamaphobia. Anti-Semitism: Similar to Racism I guess Diversity:X-men has a large diversity of ethnicity, religion and sub cultures which the films have tried to encorperate. LGBT themes:X-men was one of the few superhero comics to feature Sexual Orientated characters. Religion: Nightcrawler Catholism was the only time religion was focused on in the films. Magnetoes Judaism was also breifly seen in his memories of Chanukah. Subculture: Many mutants in X-men generally chose why they join a certain mutant team similar to sub-cultures in modern day.
1. Tye Sheridan
Actor | Mud
Having been named one of Variety's 10 Actors to Watch, Tye Sheridan has emerged as one of Hollywood's most sought after young talents. Most recently, he was seen in the highly anticipated science fiction film Ready Player One (2018) produced and directed by Steven Spielberg, playing the lead ...
Young Scott Summers aka Cyclops. Reprising the role Scott was orphan in a plane crash and separeted from his Brothers Alex and Gabriel. He grewe in a foster home and was a very aloof lonely kind of boy. His main abilites is his Optic Blast. The storyline that intersts me is this young depressed boy is given hope by the X-men and become a strong leader and beleiver in mutant and human coexistence.
Actor | One Life to Live
Born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, David received his first on-screen role in the summer of 2008 in a series of commercials for "Airborne" where he starred as Sebastian, a Fabio-esque romance novel hero.
In 2009, he was personally chosen by James L. Brooks to appear in the director's next outing ...
Scott Summer aka Cyclops. I was dissapointed about James Marsdens portrayal of Cyclops. They never portrayed him as this charismatic leader. He was more of a whiney nerd. Whilst Marsden is a great actor, the film ruined Cyclops. David was is my choice because like Cyclops he is born in Alaska and he is fairly muscular which would suit Cyclops who trains hard and is capable of fighting 6 men blind. The storyline that interests me with Cyclops is how Emme Frost states his mental condition can easily breakdown due to his childhood trauma which may have made him unable to control his mutation. This may explain why in the recent comics cyclops became an avatar for the Dark Phoenix, became a mutant terrorist and went far enough to even murder Professor X.
Actress | Prisoners
Young Jean Grey aka Marvel Girl. I know I didn't recast Cyclops, but I felt that someone shorter and more closer to having red hair should play Jean. Jean most famous storyline was her self control over the Phoenix and her relationship with Scott. In the early comic the all the male (except Iceman and Professor X) was attracted to Jean.
4. Elena Satine
Actress | Strange Angel
Elena Satine hails from the Black Sea coast of the "Russian Riviera" in Sochi. She began her professional career at the tender age of 6 when she appeared on the popular Russian children's variety show "Morning Star". On a spontaneous trip to New York City, the young actress attended an open call ...
Jean Grey aka Phoenix If i recast Cyclops I will recast Jean. Famke was actually kinda boring as Jean and only redeemed herself in Last Stand as Phoenix. But I felt that new actress who was naturally red haired should play Jean.
Actor | Mad Max: Fury Road
Nicholas Caradoc Hoult was born in Wokingham, Berkshire, England to parents Glenis and Roger Hoult. His great-aunt was one of the most popular actresses of her time, Dame Anna Neagle. He attended Sylvia Young Theatre School, a school for performing arts, to start acting as a career.
Hoult has been ...
Young Dr Henry "Hank" McCoy aka Beast. Reprising the role. He was pretty cool as Beast especially since Beast's transformation from a Geeky boy to a feroscious Beast. I was dissappointed they didn't have Beast's signiture sports and academic overachiever status as he was an accomplished P.E student.
Actor | Cheers
A six-time Emmy Award winner, Kelsey Grammer was born in Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, to Sally (Cranmer), a singer, and Frank Allen Grammer, Jr., a musician and restaurateur. He was raised in New Jersey and Florida. Grammer was drawn to the works of William Shakespeare and spent two years at ...
Dr Henry "Hank" McCoy aka Beast. Reprising the Role. He had a pretty brief appearence in the series. He was intended to return in X-men: Days of Future Past. But he was occupied with Transformers.
7. Aaron Refvem
Actor | Sons of Anarchy
Aaron Refvem was born on October 7, 1997 in New York City, New York, USA as Aaron Pierce Refvem. He is an actor, known for Sons of Anarchy (2008), Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005) and General Hospital (1963).
Young Robert "Bobby" Drake aka Iceman Iceman being born in New York, It makes sense to have a New York born actor. He was the youngest and most immautre member of the X-men. I he would provide humour for a somewhat dark series.
8. Liam Aiken
Actor | A Series of Unfortunate Events
Liam Pádraic Aiken was born January 7, 1990 in New York City, to Moya and Bill Aiken, an MTV producer. His mother was born in Ireland, while his father was an American of Irish descent. It was apparent from the beginning that Liam was a natural actor. After securing a small part on Broadway in the ...
Robert "Booby" Drake aka Iceman Iceman was traditionally a cynical underacheiver but the films made him more an everyday down to earth kind of guy. I would like to see how the Young Bobby matures into this more sensible character yet he retains his sense of humour.
9. Ben Hardy
Actor | X-Men: Apocalypse
Ben Hardy was born Ben Jones on 2 January 1991 in England, United Kingdom. He grew up in Sherborne and attended The Gryphon School.
Ben starred in The Judas Kiss (1998) play, written by David Hare, in 2012 and played the character Arthur Wellesley, a member of the hotel staff. The play was held in ...
young Warren Worthington III aka Angel. When I heard Ben HArdy was rumoured to be in X-men my first thought was: *beep* he's gonna be Angel. When the rumours pointed that he maybe cyclops I was worried because his Blond hair and muscualr Physique suits a young version of Angel. The most well-known storyline is his relationship with his Father who hates mutants.
Actor | Criminal
Richard Alan Reid was born on September 29, 1984 in London, England. He is an actor and producer, known for Criminal (2016), Frat Pack (2018) and Woman in Gold (2015). He has been married to Rachel Risen since June 8, 2016.
Warren Worthington III aka ArchAngel. I remeber him brielfy from Harry Potter as a the Griffindor Prefect. I have seen him brefily in Deadliest Warrior as Laurence of Arabia. So I wanted an acotr that would match Ben Hardy I felt that he would be a good choice. He would certainly need to beef up for Angel as he has enough superhuman strength to carry at least three people whilst flying. Im interested in seeing that storyline in which Angel loses him wings and then becomes ArchAngel to get them back.
11. James McAvoy
Actor | Split
McAvoy was born on 21 April 1979 in Glasgow, Scotland, to Elizabeth (née Johnstone), a nurse, and James McAvoy senior, a bus driver. He was raised on a housing estate in Drumchapel, Glasgow by his maternal grandparents (James, a butcher, and Mary), after his parents divorced when James was 11. He ...
Young Professor Chalres Xavier aka Professor X. Reprising the role. I was amazed to find Mr Tumnus from Narnia to be playing the young Xavier especially since he pretty cool for the role. I was dissapointed by the fact that his relationship with Juggernaut was replace with Mystique.
12. Patrick Stewart
Actor | Logan
Sir Patrick Stewart was born in Mirfield, Yorkshire, England, to Gladys (Barrowclough), a textile worker and weaver, and Alfred Stewart, who was in the army. He was a member of various local drama groups from about age 12. He left school at age 15 to work as a junior reporter on a local paper; he ...
Professor Charles Xavier aka Professor X. Reprsing the role. Like everyone else I loved this guys role as Xavier. I wanted to see an awesome storyline either with Juggernaut vs x-men, Xavier and his son Legion or Xavier and Shi'ar empire. However the last one may not be possible as the Shi'ar aliens belong to Marvel Cosmic universe (Same universe as Guardians of the Galaxy). So X-men may not have the rights to it. I have heard a rumour that Fantastic 4 reboot will be in the same universe as X-men so maybe the Shi'ar Aliens could work out.
13. Kris Lemche
Actor | Ginger Snaps
Kris Lemche was raised in Brampton, Ontario as the oldest of three children, which includes aspiring actor Matthew (Matt) Lemche. He is the son of a school teacher mother and a father who runs a heating business. Originally Kris wanted to become a doctor and study biochemistry in hopes of doing ...
James "Logan" Howlet aka Wolverine. I speak for everyone when I say Hugh Jackman was the best actor in the X-men series. He put his heart and soul into that film. Few things people did criticise was that he did not have canadian accent, he wasn't short (Wolverine is 5'3") and the Wolverine Japan spin off was an insult to the storyline. I personally feel that it was great he was portrayed as the main character as he one is my favourite X-men (second to Nightcrawler). However the X-men are a team even the TV show: Wolverine and the X-men had episodes centred on other characters. Also I doubt that he can survive remaining under water for extended periods, regenerate a whole heart or survive without a healing factor. In the comics he actually couldnt use his claws and needed special pills from Beast to prevent himself from dying from Adamantium Poisoning. But the films decided if you healing factor use survive anything (unless you're Beast, Angel, Azazel, Tempest, Darwin, Spyke, etc) Lemche is Canadian and is about 5'6" in height. I personally used to think Wolvy was 5'5" in height because I always remebered him as a tough short guy. Lemche would have a lot of work and muscle buuilding to do if he ever wanted to out compete Hugh Jackman. I personally wold like to portray his berserker state similar to his anime appearance.
14. Adelayo Adedayo
Actress | Unlocked
Young Ororo Monroe aka Storm. Adelayo is a British Actress of Nigerian Descent. I preferable was looking an actress of full east asfrican descent as Storm is half Kenyan half African American. But a West african actress is the best I've found. The storyline from Storm that I wanna see is her losing her parents and being thief for Shadow King until Professor X saves her.
15. Liya Kebede
Actress | The Good Shepherd
Liya Kebede was born on March 1, 1978 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She is an actress and producer, known for The Good Shepherd (2006), The Best Offer (2013) and Lord of War (2005). She was previously married to Kassy Kebede.
Ororo Monroe aka Storm. Kebede is an Ethiopian (not Kenyan but East African) fashion model who currently works and resides in Paris, France. She is very beautiful and tall which matches Storm and her east african accent is natural not fake and embarrissing. Storm is the most iconic female in the X-men universe (next to Jean) and is the most popular Black female superhero of all time in my opinion.
16. Alexander Nevsky
Actor | Hercules: The Beginning
Alexander Nevsky was born in Moscow. Graduated from Russian State University of Management. Later learned English at the UCLA and studied acting at Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in Los Angeles.
Nevsky is a former amateur boxer and bodybuilder, he won Mister Universe title 3 times (at World ...
Piotr Rasputin aka Colossus. 6'6" Russian Body Builder Nevsky is perfect for the role of Colossus. Considering he was so popular that he inspired many Russian into body building he deserves such an iconic role. He states he would never portray a Bad Russian or Russian terrorist so playing the mosrt badarse lovable Russian superhero colossus is perfect for him. I was dissappoint the film series made Colossus Canadian/American (Actor was canadian and using his natural accent hwoever many people claim he was americanised) and they didnt even bother to say Piotr and changed it to Peter.
17. Hunter Ryan
Actor | Man Overboard
Awarded an Army ROTC scholarship to Auburn University Montgomery 2016; majoring in Psychology specializing in psychology of terrorism and combat. . Hunter Ryan hopes to work with service members transitioning from combat to civilian life or stateside duty. Hunter Ryan is Cheyenne River Sioux and ...
Young Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler. Ryan is a young German actor who would be about 16 years old as of 2015. Which works as Nightcrawler would be slightly younger than the first generation of the X-men. I was hoping that Mystique and Azazel being in X-men: first class would be the catalyst for a nightcralwer movie. but they killed of Azazel and still made little to no reference to Nightcrawler's heritage.
18. Mike Möller
Stunts | Pandorum
Mike Möller grew up in a small village in East Germany. Since his childhood days he was very interested in various kind of sports and was always a huge movie fan. Especially martial arts and action films influenced and motivated him the most.
At the beginning he started to train martial arts on his ...
Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler. Mike Moller is a german martial artist and stunt actor. Nightcrawler is my favourite character, I liked that the films gave him character development on his Catholism. I was very dissapointed that he didn't return in X-men Last Stand, even if his role was gonna be minimum his action scene would have been awesome. I definitely want a Nightcrawler Origins film where Nightcrawler encounters his father Azazel and his Neyapphem family. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qumX2HrQcc Here is his showreel.
19. Gaku Space
Actor | Overwatch
Born in Tokyo, Japan, Gaku Space decided to forgo a baseball career to pursue his passion for acting. Relocating to Los Angeles, he studied acting and became an advanced martial artist in Filipino Kali and Japanese sword fighting. In 2014, he landed a lead role in the live-action series Street ...
Shiro Yoshida aka Sunfire. The first asian and japanese member of the X-men. He was somewhat of a hothead and didn't initially accept Professor X's offer. However he became a recurring ally and eventually many consider this rogue to be an X-man. Gaku is well known for playing Goki in Street Fighter. He also voiced Sunfire in X-men: Destiny. so this is sort of reprising the role. Gaku is also skilled in Boxing and taekwondo after his experinece with SF:AF team. I feel he is more than capable of portraying the hothead sunfire.
20. Andrew Simpson
Actor | Notes on a Scandal
Andrew Simpson attended the Foyle School of Speech and Drama, and was taught by Sandra Biddle in his home city of Derry in Northern Ireland. Andrew's mum and dad are Marion and Paddy and he has two older sisters, Charlotte and Sarah and a younger brother, Patrick, all of whom have also attended ...
young Sean Cassidy aka Banshee I was very dissapointed when X-men did not portray Banshee as Irish. I felt that was a very unique and memorable trait to the character so I decided to find a young Irish actor who should play him.
21. Jason O'Mara
Actor | The Man in the High Castle
Jason O'Mara was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Soon after graduating from Trinity College Dublin with a BA in Drama and Theatre he moved to London, England, to further pursue his acting career. Time spent in British repertory theater led to leading roles in acclaimed productions at some of ...
Sean Cassidy aka Banshee I remember Jason played as Wesker in RE: Extinction. I felt I wanted to see more of this actor. So when I realised he was Irish I felt that he should play Banshee. I kinda wished he looked older since Banshee is appaerently close to Beast and Professor X's age.
22. J. LaRose
Actor | Mayans M.C.
John Proudstar aka Thunderbird. He was a short lived member of the second generation X-men. He died very early on due to his impulsiveness. He was somewhat a mix of wolverine and colossus. He was of Apache descent and a skilled fighter. Larose is of Navajo descent and he is closee to John's height being a 6' tall which is an inch shorter. One of my friends told me they made a fan comic in which Sinister captures Thunderbird and the original X-men to fight Professor X and his second gen X-men. It sounded awesome since that made the rivals being Prof X vs Mr Sinister Wolverine vs Cyclops Storm vs Phoenix Nightcrawler vs Beast Banshee vs Archangel Sunfire vs Iceman Colossus vs Thunderbird. It sounded kl when he told me about this idea shame it never happended.
23. Ashley Leilani
Stunts | All-Star Weekend
Anna-Marie D'Canto aka Rogue. Everyone hated the fact that Rogue was not sassy or flirtatious as her comic counterpart. I would have preferred this personality. In addition many people disliked that fact she couldn't have her Paragon abilites from Ms Marvel, however this probably becasue Ms Marvel's character rights belong to the Avengers and guardians of the galaxy films. If I couldnt implicate the Ms Marvel storyline because of the rights issues, I would have kept Rogue as Mystique's foster daughter and member of the brotherhood breifly. To make her different to the films she would be able to pick up natural abilities like martial arts, intelligence, etc from the people she absorbs and I times of stress can recall powers briefly without absorbing. I would like to use the X-men: evolution storyline that was also provided for Rogue when her powers went out of control. In terms of romance her main would be Gambit as in the comics, but I feel because she can touch Colossus in his metalic form, she could have relationship with him. Ashley is born in Mississippi so she can pull off the accent and she also almost the same height as Rogue.
24. Channing Tatum
Actor | 21 Jump Street
Channing Tatum was born in a small town, Cullman, Alabama, 50 miles north of Birmingham. He is the son of Kay (Faust), an airline worker, and Glenn Matthew Tatum, who worked in construction. Growing up, he was full of energy and somewhat troublesome, so his parents decided to enroll him in ...
Remy LaBeau aka Gambit. Reprising the role. Abandoned due to his red eyes, Gambit was taken in and adopted by the Theives Guild wear he learnt to be an expert theif (obviously), Savatuer, acrobat and also mastered Bojujutsu and Canne De Combat. Channing Tatum recently won the role of Gambit and will star in a Gambit origin film. Tatum claimed to be working on his Cajun accent and he already has traits that are similar to Gambit. From being a heartthrob to women everywhere, knowing martial arts (Tatum knows Kung-fu) and he was also very acrobatic due to his dancing career. All he really needs is to perfect his Cajun accent and practice his staff play skills.
25. Maxim Knight
Actor | Falling Skies
Maxim Knight stars in TNT's hit sci-fi drama "Falling Skies." Maxim's performance earned him a Young Artist Award in 2012.
At 13, Maxim has over 60 film, television, commercial & voice over credits.
At the tender age of 7, Maxim booked his first feature film, starring opposite Oscar winner Melissa ...
young Alex Summers/Blandings aka Havok. I was very annoyed that Alex was not portrayed as the younger borhter for Cyclops since there could have been a storyline highlighting the Summers family story arc. Scott becomes an X-man, Alex works for X-Factor, Gabriel apparently is found by Sinister and their Father is abducted by the Shi'ar Aliens or something. Anyways I felt a young Hawiian born actor would suit as that is wear Havok was born.
26. Lucas Till
Actor | X: First Class
Lucas Daniel Till was born in Fort Hood, Texas, to Dana Lyn (Brady) and John Mark Till, a lieutenant colonel in the army. He spent most of his childhood growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. At a very young age, Lucas' family quickly noticed that he had an affinity for impersonating voices...
Alex Summers/Blandings aka Havok Till actually has a strong resembalance to Alex with his blonde hair and average guy sort of look. I would not change him because he made Alex seem like a more like the cyclops we never had.
27. Scarlett Byrne
Scarlett Byrne was born on October 6, 1990 in Hammersmith, London, England as Scarlett Hannah Byrne. She is an actress, known for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009).
Lorna Dane aka Polaris I wanted an actress who I felt can reflect off McKellen and Fassbenders role as Magneto and I felt a British actress can play the role. In addition I wanted an actress that matches Lucas Till's age due to the fact Polaris and Havok get married. Polaris is the illegitamate daughter of Magneto and half sister to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. She possesses the same abilites as her father. Its rumoured the young girl with Quicksilver in DOFP was supposed to be her.
28. Ashley Tisdale
Actress | High School Musical 3: Senior Year
Ashley Michelle Tisdale (born July 2, 1985) is an American actress, singer, and producer. During her childhood, she appeared in more than 100 TV advertisements and had roles in theatre and television shows. In 2004, she was cast as Maddie Fitzpatrick in Disney Channel's The Suite Life of Zack & ...
Alison Blaire aka Dazzler. I remember Dazzler was a singer whose mutant abilities allow her to absorb sound energy and project it as light. Her powers are generally compared with Jubilee. I wanted a blonde, american actress and singer to play dazzler and I wanted her to be fairly young and Tisdale is the first that comes to mind.
29. Robert Hoffman
Actor | Step Up 2: The Streets
Robert James Hoffman III was born in Gainesville, Florida, the son of Charlotte and Robert Hoffman II, and moved with his family to Madison, Alabama when he was seven. He has one younger brother, Chris, and two younger sisters, Ashley and Lauren. He attended Bob Jones High School. He discovered his...
Longshot. This character is well known for being the boyfriend of Dazzler. His origin is a bit confusing however: Clone/son (and father) of Shatterstar engineered to fight the Spineless Ones: Engineered clone of an engineered mutant clone/mutant hybrid; Son/father paradox/time loop. Hoffman has played as *beep* characters in Aliens in the Attic and She's the Man. However I remember him from Step Up 2 where he was a more likeable character and I feel that he should go back to that role for Longshot. Due to his dancing abilities Hoffman can due his own acrobatic and agile maneuvers.
30. Nichola Burley
Actress | Wuthering Heights
Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock aka Psylocke In begining Psylocke was actually a Blonde British Babe, she tends dye her hair purple for some reason. I felt a British Dancer Nichola Burley should portray her as she had blonde hair when I saw her in Street Dance 3D and has the physical fitness for the character.
Kwannon aka Revanche Roxanne is a British Chinese actress who is skilled in martial arts and dancing. I think that when Psylocke switches bodies she still retains her British Accent so it makes sense for a British East Asian actress to portray her. Kwannon is a skilled Kunoichi (female ninja) and samurai. she actually gains Psylockes powers through their mind swap.
32. Preeya Kalidas
Actress | Four Lions
Preeya Kalidas is a singer,actress,dancer.
Her credits cover stage,screen and television.
She was cast after a worldwide search in the leading role of Priya in AR Rahmans Bombay Dreams produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber.She sang the hit song Shakalaka Baby which won best video at MTV Asia Awards.
Risty Wilde aka Blue Queen according to this page: http://marvel-movies.wikia.com/wiki/Psylocke. An Indian actress named Pryanka Chopra was intended to portray Psylocke. This may be due to the fact that in Britain the word Asian refers to South Asian and in USA Asian means East Asian. Also in Wolverine and the X-men, Psylocke appears as a one time ally to Quicksilver and the brotherhood. Whilst she retains her British accent she also has Brown skin rather than light skin. In X-men Evolution Mystique disguises herself as Risty Wilde, a British Girl with purple hair. Many fans thought this was Psylocke before it was revealed to be Mystique. This version will be based loosely off Psylocke from Wolverine and the X-men where she is British Asian, Risty Wilde where she adopts the name and befriends Rogue and she will loosely have aspects of Madelyn Pryor aka Red Queen who is a clone of Jean Grey created by Mr.Sinister. Blue Queen will be like an South Asian clone of Kwannon create by M.Sinister perhaps but is an ally to Quicksilver because he liberated her. She is a trained Thugge (Indian Assassins/Theif) and master of Kalaripayyatu and Gatka. Her Psychic weapons are based on south asian weapons like Urumi (swordwhip), Pata (gaunletsword) and Chakram (throwing disk).
33. Aaron Fa'aoso
Actor | East West 101
Aaron Fa'Aoso first came to prominence in 2004 with his performance as Eddie in the critically-acclaimed SBS mini-series, R.A.N., for which he received a nomination for an AFI Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Drama and a LOGIE Award nomination for Most Outstanding New Talent. ...
Lucas Bishop I originally presumed Bishop was African-American. However in the films he was portrayed by French actor Omar Sy and used a West African accent (Sy is of Senegalese and Mauritanian heritage). However I recently found out that Bishop is actually of Aborigine Descent. His family immigrated from Australia to USA before he was born. There is a rumour going around that his Storm might be his grandmother as she looks like her. If this is true then Bishop could be 1/8th Kenyan, 1/8th African American, 1/4 Wakandan (If Black Panther is his grandfather) and 1/2 Aborigine. Aaron Fa'aoso is an Australian Actor of Aborigine, Samoan, Tongan and Saibai Islander descent.
34. Jay Tavare
Jay Tavare describes himself best when he says he is a storyteller and a citizen of the world.
Jay's acting performances in several Oscar winning films--with some of our era's most talented and acclaimed directors and actors--are the natural outcome of his eclectic life experiences and the direct ...
Forge. Forge is of Native American descent and is a Mutant with superhuman intelligence. He served as a soldier in the vietnam war and ended getting prosthetic limbs. therefore making him a cyborg. Jay Tavare is of Navajo descent and is a skilled martial artist and actor so he can portray Forge as somewhat a genius, brave leader (He led the X-Factor in the 90s cartoon) and decisive fighter.
35. Marcel Simoneau
Actor | Gotham
Born and raised in Quebec, Canada. Lived in South America. Came to New York City and started his own theatre company. Studied and now teaches at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Insitute. Graduated this year from the Maggie Flannigan Studio.
Jean-Paul Beaubier aka Northstar. Presumably the first Homosexual X-men and possibly the first Marvel hero to be Sexually Orientated. Northstar was an ally of Wolverine during their time in the Alpha Flight. He later joins the X-men. I felt that because X-men is all about Diversity, a Sexually Orientated Mutant should have appeared in the films long ago. I dont know whether Marcel is actually comfortable with playing that kind of role but he is born in Quebec and is fluent in English, French and Spanishi which is more than enough for NorthStar.
36. Marie Gibeault
Actress | Afternoon Delight
From her young age, Marie Gibeault knew she had the passion for acting. Unfortunately, her parents didn't want her to start her career younger, so she had to wait to be old enough to make her own decisions. She graduated from Cegep in Arts and letters; theater at the age of 18 and then traveled the...
Jeanne-Marie Beaubier aka Aurora Twin sister of Northstar with Identical powers. Gibb is born in Quebec much like Marcel. Aurora was raised away from her twin to a strict religious family that believed mutants were demons of sorts. She also had trouble accepting her brothers sexuality. She also suffers from Schizophrenia and has multiple personalities. Jeanne-Marie Beaubier Personality (1): Her primary personality of a prim and proper, repressed woman. ■ Aurora Personality (2): A second personality of an uninhibited extrovert. ■ Personality (3): Likes fine wines, horse racing, and casual ultra-violence. ■ Personality (4): A weekend goth, who occasionally self-harms, and has an inexplicable aversion to shellfish. ■ Personality (5): Likes sports activities, photography, and is an amateur paleontologist (someone who studies prehistoric life). Spoke only in French. ■ Personality (6): Likes opera, gardening, and creationist literature. ■ Personality (7): Likes graffiti, mild S&M, and gambling. ■ Personality (8): Is reckless and is a committed masochist. this will make her a more interesting and dramatic character.
37. Jon Hamm
Actor | Mad Men
Nathan Summers aka Cable Son of Cyclops and Madeline Pryor (Clone of Jean Grey. Goes by the alias Red Queen). He is part of the future X-men and is an ally to Bishop. I heard a rumour that Jon Hamm was one of the possible candidates for Cable in the X-force films.
38. Haley Ramm
Actress | Disconnect
Haley Ramm must have been in quite a hurry to start living because her entrance into this world came five weeks early. At age three she started dancing in local studios, and by the time she was seven she was choreographing her own freestyle dances at school talent shows. Her love of center stage ...
Rachel Summers aka Marvel Girl Another child of Cyclops'. She is the daughter of the real Jean Grey however. She also like her sort of half brother Cable travels between timelines. Haley Ramm already portrayed Young Jean in Last Stand so I would have her portray her timetravelling daughter.
Actress | Mad Max: Fury Road
Rosie Alice Huntington-Whiteley is best known for her work as a Victoria's Secrets lingerie model and as a movie actress. She has appeared in five Victoria's Secret Fashion shows from 2006 through 2010 and became a Victoria's Secret Angel in November 2009. She has appeared on the cover of ...
Emma Frost aka White Queen In this link: http://marvel-movies.wikia.com/wiki/Emma_Frost. There are many claims that Emma Frost normally speaks with an English accent in the animated series and in the comics she is said to use the same accent. Being British myself I don't normally notice natural English accent because it doesn't sound like there is any accent being used. This would explain why when I watch Wolverine and the X-men Emma is the only character to sound normal whilst majority sound North American to me. Rosie is a well known British Fashion model. She is tall and blonde like Frost and has a glamorous taste for fashion. I speak for many people that she is perfect for the character.
40. Sara Paxton
Actress | The Innkeepers
Sara Paxton was born in Woodland Hills, California. At a young age she began acting in television commercials.
She was cast in her first film at the age of 8 as a child at school and at the party in Liar Liar (1997). Her first major television series role was on the WB's Greetings from Tucson (2002)....
Katherine "Kitty" Pryde aka Shadowcat. Not that I have anything against Ellen Page. I preferred to have a Jewish American actress for Shadowcat. Paxton is from Jewish family with Mexican, English and Irish ancestry and she is only an inch taller than Shadowcat. I remember in X-men: Evolution, Kitty is seen celebrating Chanukah in the Christmas episode so I felt this was important as X-men ins all about diversity. Paxton's experience may help bring a realistic portrayal of what social issues Jewish girls may have as she can relate.
Actor | Shame
Michael Fassbender was born in Heidelberg, Germany, to a German father, Josef, and an Irish mother, Adele (originally from Larne, County Antrim, in Northern Ireland). Michael was raised in the town of Killarney, Co. Kerry, in south-west Ireland, where his family moved to when he was two years old. ...
Max Eisenhardt aka Magneto. reprising the role I don't know why X-men never refer to Magneto by his birth name. Especially since Eisenhardt means IronHard (Pretty cool name for the master of magnetism). I like that they casted a german actor (Fassbender is German born British raised his ethnicity is Irish-German mixed) for Magneto especially since he used German in the film and they even show how his memories of Chanukah is very important to him as he was able to use his happy memories and his faith to empower himself.
42. Ian McKellen
Widely regarded as one of greatest stage and screen actors, both in his native Great Britain and internationally, twice nominated for the Oscar and recipient of every major theatrical award in UK and US, Ian Murray McKellen was born on May 25, 1939 in Burnley, Lancashire, England, to Margery Lois (...
Erik "Magnus" Lensher aka Magneto At some point Magneto takes up a new alias which Charles generally refers to him as. Ian is an amazing actor and I would not replace Magneto's actor for anyone at all.
Actor | Accepted
A native of Shueyville, Iowa, Taylor is a graduate of Northwestern University's School of Speech.
Robin Lord Taylor has appeared in several acclaimed television series, such as The Walking Dead (2010), Law & Order (1990), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) The Good Wife (2009) and ...
Arcade (real name unknown) Arcade was a spoilt billionaire's son. He killed his father at the age of 21 and inherited his wealth. By then this sociopathic lad found he has a lust for murdering and started making theme parks that were intended to kill or trap anyone who entered. (Very much like the jigsaw). He was also an assassin for hire. He hit a jackpot when he hacks the danger room (and I guess you can predict what happens next). Taylor is wellknown for playing the sociopathic Penguin in Gotham and I feel his amazing acting and his resemblance to Arcade makes him perfect for this role (Arcade is 5'6" tall and has red hair)
44. Bassam Habib
Writer | Et maintenant on va où?
Young En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse Bassam Nessim is an Egyptian born actor. He is quite young being born in 1992 and is tall being 6'3". He certainly suits the young Apocalypse.
45. Kal Naga
Actor | Vikings
Kal Naga (aka: Khaled Abol Naga) is a Multi Award winning Actor and Producer from Egypt, based in Los Angeles, California. He is a well established movie star in the middle-east and is one of as the new generation of film makers with international groundbreaking award winning Cinema. He is also a ...
En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse Another tall Egyptian actor. Standing at 6'4" tall and being nearly 50 years old as of 2015. This guys should have been the perfect actor for Apocalypse. En Sabah Nur meaning the Seven Lights in Arabic. Apocalypse was rumoured to be the first ever Mutant and he believes himself to be a mutant god possessing immortality and many other godlike abilities.
Actor | Killing Eve
Dr Nathaniel Essex aka Mr Sinister. Sinister is a well known X-men villain. Famous for experimenting on mutants for his own gain. Originally he was born in the 1800s England where he was a strong believer in Darwin's evolutionary theory. He also released Apocalypse and was mutated by him. However some people question whether Sinister is a mutant or mutate as Apocalypse may have enhanced his mutation or activated his latent mutation. However it is agreed that Sinister acquires more power from mutant DNA. Henry is a British actor who I feel deserves the role. He has played as school bully Donovan (Inbetweeners), appeared as the older brother of Blaine in MI High and also an Upper Class English man in Indian Summers. He is very versatile and I would love him to be more popular.
47. Neil Fingleton
Actor | X: First Class
Neil Fingleton was born on February 18, 1980 in Durham, England. He is known for his work on X-Men: First Class (2011), 47 Ronin (2013) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). He died on February 25, 2017 in London, England.
Cain Marko aka The Unstoppable Juggernaut Bitch!!! I feel that Vinnie Jones was too short for Juggernaut and that prevented the films from having a decent Colossus vs Juggernaut fight scene. (Considering Colossus is 6'7" and juggernaut is 6'2" in the film). Apparently Jones was chosen because they wanted British actor why? I don't know because it has nothing to do with Prof X being British in the films. Neil Fingleton is a British Actor, he stands at 7'7" in height (Juggernaut in the comics is 9'5") and I personally feel he would be better suited to be the more threatening Juggernaut. Just give him a muscle suit (unless Neil doesn't mind body building for the role) and helmet and know one will be confident to mess with him.
Actress | The Hunger Games
Was the highest-paid actress in the world in 2015 and 2016. With her films grossing over $5.5 billion worldwide, Jennifer Lawrence is often cited as the most successful actor of her generation. She is also thus far the only person born in the 1990s to have won an acting Oscar.
Jennifer Shrader ...
Young Raven Darkholme aka Mystique. reprising the role. no explanation necessary. I didn't like the retcon of her origins in the films. I prefer her origin being more mysterious. However I like how the films made her the hottest mutant in the series and one of the best martial artists in the X-men universe.
49. Rebecca Romijn
Actress | X-Men
Rebecca Alie Romijn was born on November 6, 1972 in Berkeley, California. Her father was Dutch-born and worked as a custom-furniture maker. Her mother was American-born, with Dutch and English ancestry, and was a teacher of English. Rebecca attended Berkeley High School where her nickname was the "...
Raven Darkholme aka Mystique. reprising the role. Same as before. no explanation needed. I was hoping she and Azazel will be the parents of Nightcrawler in the films just like the comics. Especially since they both side with magneto and also she seems very upset over seeing Azazel's autopsy. In addition young nightcrawler will appear so it could be revealed that she is his mother.
50. Tao Okamoto
Actress | The Wolverine
Tao Okamoto born in Chiba, Japan on May 22, 1985, known professionally as Tao, is a Japanese actress and model. In 2009, she was one of the faces of Ralph Lauren. She made her film debut in 2013 as Mariko Yashida, the female lead, in The Wolverine (2013). She also had recurring roles in the ...
Mariko Itsu Yashida. Reprising the role. I hated the Wolverine: Japan film because it is an insult to the storyline. I would have slightly changed Mariko to be merged with Itsu (one of wolverine's known mistresses and Akhiro's mother). She would have her film abilities of being a martial artist. Notbly she is the half sister of Silver Samurai (Ken Harada) and cousin of Sunfire and Sunpyre.
51. Mika Hijii
Actress | Ninja
Leyu Yashida aka Sunpyre. The younger sister of Sunfire. She is the more level headed and sensible of the sunfire siblings. She unlike her brother was more willin to help and join the X-men. Mika is well known for her role in Ninja as Scott Adkin's love interest.
52. Jon Foo
Actor | Tekken
Jon Foo was born October 30th, 1982 in London England. He is known for his roles in The Protector (2005) Tekken (2010) WEAPONiZED (2016) and Rush Hour (2016) . He studied Art and Design, excelled in sports and took up a career in Film, with his main body of work existing in London, Thailand, Hong ...
Akihiro aka Daken Wolverine and Itsu's half Caucasian half Japanese Son. Daken grew up without wolverine knowing of his existence and hated his father. especially since his mother died when he was young and everyone mistreats Akihiro due to his mutation and his obvious mixed ethnic heritage. Jon Foo has played a similar role in Tekken as Jin Kazama. He also like DaKen is Eurasian (British Irish/Chinese), capable acrobat and martial artist, perfect in height 5'9" and considering Daken has identical powers to Wolvy it would make a badarse fight scene if the two meet in the films.
53. Tsuyoshi Ihara
Actor | Jûsan-nin no shikaku
Ihara Tsuyoshi was born on November 6, 1963, in Kokura, Kyushu. He grew up in Osaka, and after graduating high school, he joined JAC (Japan Action Club) which is headed by Shin'ichi Chiba (aka Chiba Shinichi), which is a company of stunt and action actors. He made his debut in 1983 in a stage drama...
Shingen Yashida. Father of Mariko and Keniuochi Harada. He is the first man to take up the guise of the Silver Samurai. Whilst the plot of the film was pretty good I disliked that they invented Ichiro just so Shingen can be a villain that just wastes Wolverine's time.
54. Will Yun Lee
Actor | Altered Carbon
Will Yun Lee was born in Arlington, Virginia, to Jung Ja Lee and Soo Won Lee, who had recently emigrated from Korea. He was raised by both immediate and extended family and moved often, exposed to life on the tough Bronx streets and idyllic Hawaiian beaches. By his teens he was living in the San ...
Keniouchi Harada aka Silver Samurai II. Reprising the Role. This character was also ruined in the films. He did not have his mutant power which allow him to charge objects with a tachyon energy pulse that slice through anything. Instead he was just a crappy henchman that changes sides and get killed as soon as he does so. Nothing like the traditional comic book character. I did like Lee's performance on the character however.
55. Rila Fukushima
Actress | 1,000,000 yen no Onnatachi
Rila Fukushima is an actress, known for 1,000,000 yen no Onnatachi (2017).
Yukio. Reprising the role. I liked this character especially since she felt like an anime chick brought into live action. I didn't really care about her useless mutation which predicted Wolverine's death because he died (in the medical sense) them regrows a new heart. In the comics she's not a mutant so I prefer the idea that she is just as powerful with any mutant abilities.
56. Oleg Taktarov
Actor | Predators
"Oleg makes an impression." On his DVD commentary for "Righteous Kill" (2008), director Jon Avnet remarks that he needed a powerful actor to play Russian mob enforcer Yevgeny Mugalat, a character who survives six gunshots at close range. International star Oleg Taktarov, born in Sarov, Russia, ...
Arkady Rossovich aka Omega Red. Rather than having another giant Russian for Red. I wanted a skilled Russian Martial Artist and what better than MMA fighter Oleg. Omega Red was initially a serial killer turned supersoldier so Oleg's fighting skills would make sense for the character. He is a mutant who is experimented on by the soviets and given Carbonadium tentacles as weapon (note Carbonadium counter healing abilities of Wolverine, Sabretooth, Etc). Wolverine needed to use the muramasa blade (Katana made from Wolvy's soul that negates healing aswell) to kill him.
Actor | X2
Jason Wyngarde aka Mastermind. reprising the role. He appears in X-men II as Jason Stryker the son of William Stryker. However the character is based off Mastermind. Mastermind is the main telepath for Magneto's Acolytes/Brotherhood. Which is why in the X-men official game (based on the film) Magneto tries to kidnap him.
58. Shane O'Meara
Actor | Weaverfish
Shane O'Meara came to prominence playing troubled Scots schoolboy Connor Mulgrew, at odds with his alcoholic mother, in the long running television series 'Waterloo Road' though he was not Scottish and rather too old for school having been born in Ireland on April 26 1992 and having two brothers ...
Kevin David MacTaggert-Haller aka Proteaus/Legion. Charles Xavier's Scottish son. This is a merge of Professor X's son David Haller aka Legion and Moira MacTaggert's son Kevin MacTaggert aka Proteaus. He suffers from Schizophrenia and Autism and has many personalities. In X-men evolution his main personalities are Lucas a villainous Scottish Punk, Ian a mute boy and David the original who can't control his other personalities or powers. His name is based on a man who was possessed by many demons and told Jesus his name is Legion and he is many. In the film aspects of Legion was used for Jason Stryker such as Hetrochromia, hatred of their father, mental health and multiple personas (in games Jason Stryker has a young boy (girl in the films) who is good, an adult believes everything his father (William Stryker) does about mutants and a third personality that Professor X knew before the events of the film. Shane O'Meara is known for play Connor Mulgrew in Waterloo Road. Although he is ethnically Irish and born in Ireland. O'Meara grew up in Scotland and has a natural Scottish accent.
59. Ashley Mulheron
Actress | Primeval
Ashley Mulheron trained as an actress at Central School of Speech & Drama in London, on the 1-year course.
She can be seen in Momentum Pictures' British comedy horror, Vampire Killers (2009), opposite Bafta Winners James Corden & Mathew Horne, produced by Steve Clark-Hall and directed by Phil Claydon...
Young Dr Moira Gabrielle MacTaggert. I didn't like the fact X-men did not make Moira Scottish and I weren't the only one apparently James McAvoy (Young ProfX) was disappointed aswell. So I feel that A Scottish Actress would suit. Ashley is slightly Younger than James McAvoy and so I think them two would have better on screen Chemistry. This version of Moira is merged with Gabrielle Haller who is the mother of David Haller aka Legion.
60. Lindsay Duncan
Lindsay Duncan was born on November 7, 1950 in Edinburgh, Scotland as Lindsay Vere Duncan. She is known for her work on Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014), About Time (2013) and Under the Tuscan Sun (2003). She is married to Hilton McRae. They have one child.
Dr Moira Gabrielle MacTaggert Haller. The elder Moira in X-men last stand was portrayed with a British Accent rather than the comic books Scottish or Rose Byrne's American. I wanted to find a Scottish actress that matches Patrick Stewart and I feel if Scottish Actress Duncan dyes her hair brown (Auburn as ProfX says in the film) then she will be perfect. The surname Haller will be Moira's husband and Kevin's Step-Father for this version.
61. Matt Smith
Actor | Doctor Who
Matt Smith is an English actor who shot to fame in the UK aged 26 when he was cast by producer Steven Moffat as the Eleventh Doctor in the BBC's iconic science-fiction adventure series Doctor Who (2005).
Matthew Robert Smith was born and raised in Northampton, the son of Lynne (Fidler) and David ...
John Sublime. In the comics, John Sublime is the leader of the U-men: group of Mutates/Mutants, (depending on the storyline) that use the X-gene to manufacture a mutation drug called Kick. Sublime is actually a helpless host to a Sentient Bacterium (a Parasite) why it wants Mutant abilities is beyond me but it is possible that this parasite wants to become the most powerful being on earth. John Sublime in the comics looks similar to Matt Smith as he is the first actor who came to mind.
62. Yuna Ito
Actress | Nana
Hisako Ichiki aka Armour. Yuna Ito is an American actress of Japanese/Korean descent. Armour is a female Japanese mutant who can form an astral force field around her body to protect herself and have superhuman strength.
63. Mario Lopez
Actor | Get Him to the Greek
Born in San Diego, California, on October 10th, 1973, to Mario Sr. and Elvira, Mario Lopez's first professional role was on the series, a.k.a. Pablo (1984). Mario is probably best known to youngsters, however, as A.C. Slater from NBC's popular 1980s teen comedy series Saved by the Bell (1989).
John Lopez aka Washout He is a Hispanic mutant with Hydro-kinetic abilities. He appears as cameo characters in X-men: Anime as a South American boy who Emma Frost Tutors and a citizen of Genosha in Wolverine and The X-men TV Series. Mario Lopez in an American actor of Mexican descent. He matches Washout's height and was former amateur wrestler for his high school so he can do his own physical feats.
64. Alex Pettyfer
Actor | I Am Number Four
Alexander Richard Pettyfer was born in Hertfordshire and raised in Windsor. His mother, Lee (Robinson), is an interior designer. His father, Richard Pettyfer, is a fellow actor. His parents divorced and Alex now has a younger half-brother, James, from his mother's re-marriage to a property ...
Brian Braddock aka Captain Britain. Twin brother of Psylocke. Whilst he is not a mutant or an x-men he alongside Deadpool, Ironman, Nightcrawler, Colossus and Rogue appear in the X-men anime saving innocent people from Legion's reality warping chaos. If felt that Pettyfer was close to Nichola Burley's age but slightly younger, I also felt that if anyone can rival Chris Evans' Captain America it should be him. The only issue would be that this character's rights belongs to the Avengers and not X-men despite his Twin Sister belonging to the X-men franchise.
65. Ryan Reynolds
Actor | Deadpool
Ryan Rodney Reynolds was born on October 23, 1976 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the youngest of four children. His father, James Chester Reynolds, was a food wholesaler, and his mother, Tamara Lee "Tammy" (Stewart), worked as a retail-store saleswoman. He has Irish and Scottish ancestry. ...
Wade Winston Wilson aka Deadpool. Reprising the Role. I personally feel Reynolds was perfect for the role of Deadpool as both are Canadian, funny with a smart mouth, both around 6'1" tall and both fairly athletic.
66. Scott Adkins
Actor | Boyka: Undisputed IV
Scott Edward Adkins was born on June 17, 1976 in Sutton Coldfield, England, into a family that for generations were butchers. Along with his elder brother Craig, he was raised by their parents, John and Janet (Sanders) Adkins, in a loving middle-class family. Scott attended Bishop Vesey's Grammar ...
Deadpool (Stunt Double, Super Ego/Angel Doctor Bong voice). This is sort of reprising the role as Adkins played as Ryan Reynolds stunt double in X-men Origins: Wolverine. In the Deadpool game, Deadpool has three voices. His regular voice which Reynolds can use his natural Canadian accent, his Super Ego (Psychology term for the Good conscience) which Scott Adkins will use his natural British Accent (Brummie) and...
67. Nolan North
Nolan North was born on October 31, 1970 in New Haven, Connecticut, USA as Nolan Ramsay North. He is known for his work on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (2015), Con Man (2015) and Pretty Little Liars (2010). He has been married to Jill Murray since June 4, 1999. They have two children.
Deadpool's Id/Devil voice aka MadCap. reprising the role sort of. Nolan North is my favourite Deadpool voice in the Games and Cartoons. He also provides the voices for Deadpool's different personas. If Reynold plays as Neutral voice Deadpool (Deadpool's Ego with a Canadian Accent) and Adkins plays as Hero voice Deadpool (Deadpool's Super Ego/Angel with a British Accent). North will use his American Accent for Villain voice Deadpool (Deadpool's Id/Devil) He is voice that generally encourages Deadpool to think about profane, violent or obscene things like blood, gore, boobs, etc. I found out recently that the two voices in Deadpools head are Doctor Bong who for some reason acts as Deadpool's Psychiatrist. Which would explain why he makes Deadpool pay attention and behave logically. Whilst MadCap is a mutate who was created by aim and is even more insane than Deadpool.
68. Jason Dolley
Actor | Good Luck Charlie
Jason Dolley (Born Jason Scott Dolley) was born on July 5, 1991 in Los Angeles California. When he turned 11 he landed the lead role in the short film Chasing Daylight (2004) playing a boy who is having to cope with the loss of his best friend. That same year, he was picked up by Mel Gibson who was...
Ray Crisp aka Berzerker. In the comics Berzerker is a electro-kinetic mutant who is one of the Morlocks and later leaves them for his own team the Tunnelers. He is also in a relationship with Scaleface. However the cartoons have interpreted him differently which made me want to see more of this character. He is very violent and impulsive matching his electrical powers and name. In X-men: evolution he is a former member of the Morlocks who joins the New Mutants and is supposed to have a rivalry with Sunspot. In Wolverine and the X-men, he is only seen as a child in the sewers being saved by Cyclops from Blockbuster and Vertigo. There is no reference to the morlocks in that cartoon but the fact he was in the sewers pretty much hints at it. He also appears as an adult as a member of the Days of Future Past X-men.
69. Tatiana DeKhtyar
Actress | Heroes with Issues
Tatiana DeKhtyar was born and raised in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
She started her modeling career at the age of 14. Later on she got involved in a commercial acting and then eventually started focusing on her theatrical career as an actress.
Tatiana has appeared on the covers of a variety of ...
Neena Thurman aka Domino. In wolverine and the X-men (WATXM) domino appears as the female member of the Brotherhood of Mutants. She develops a friendship with Rogue during Rogue's allegiance with them. She seems to adopt a gothic look with an all-black outfit and pale makeup/skin and jet black hair. She also appears as one of many former villains who join the future X-men. Berzerker and Marrow of the Morlocks (There is very little reference to them in WATXM), Domino of the Brotherhood, Hellion of the Hellions (though that team never appears in WATXM), Kamal and Polaris of the Acolytes (Kamal was a member in the comics whilst he isn't in the cartoons) and Vanisher who is a consistent villain of the X-men in the comics. Tatiana DeKhtyar played as Domino in the Super Power Beat Down episode: Joker and harleyquin vs Deadpool and Domino.
70. Tyler Neitzel
Actor | 300
Julian Keller aka Hellion. Hellion is a very powerful mutant who possesses telekinesis however his powers unleash a green coloured aura. He was leader of the team called the Hellions which he named himself after. He appears as part of the future x-men in WATXM TV series.
71. Jan Uddin
Actor | Shank
Born in England (Stoke-on-Trent) of Bangladeshi descent, Jan Uddin is an international actor who has lived in Bangladesh, Tunisia, Sweden, the United Kingdom and now in the US.
Finding his passion for acting at a very young age, Uddin moved to London when he was 18 to pursue his dream career, ...
Kamal El Alaoui/Al Alawi. In the comics Kamal is a member of the Acolytes and appears to be 6'7" and is pale skinned. However he was completely reimagined in WATXM as a member of the future X-men. He also is similar to Uddin in physical appearance, having tanned brown skin, standing around 6'2" tall, sporting a Asian accent and being the muscle of the team. His name implies he is a Muslim however the spelling is from Arabic to French as the English spelling of Alaoui is Alawi. This could imply he is from North Africa (like most French Muslims) or he is simply from west or south Asia (Jan Uddin is British Bangladeshi), but adopts French spelling. I would reimagine Kamal, to be a Muslim who can mimic (Instead of Absorbing) the physical and chemical properties of whatever he touches.By default he is stronger, faster, more flexible, durable and heals quicker than a normal human and is immune to extreme temperature conditions and poisons. (Enough to hold his own against wolverine). By mimicking an object it can enhance his abilities Example: Diamond and Adamantium enhance Invulnerability, Stamina and Strength but weakens speeds and flexibility. Rubber provides Elastic strength and bouncy durability, allow enhances speed and agility, but still vulnerable to things that can damage Rubber. He retains a humanoid shape even when mimicking liquids and gas. Liquid Nitrogen gives him limited intangibility but its can flash freeze people near him due to fluid forms are more Unstable and Reactive. He can imitate Biophysical and Biochemical properties of mutants: Cyclops and Havok's resistance to the Summers family energy beam (However he can't mimic their ability to shoot energy beams), Colossus or Iceman's Skin (can't control Ice from Iceman), Nightcrawler's Camouflage, Reflexes and night vision (Cant mimic teleportation or tail) He is immune to Rogue's absorbing abilities. The main storyline I can think of is his mutant identity and Liberal Islamic beliefs lead his to somewhat sympathise with Magneto's ideals but he believes a mutant is equal to human due to his belief that Muslims are equal to Kaffirs (Non-Muslims). Despite this he faces prejudice on both his Islamic and Mutant Identity.
72. Sierra Fisk
Actress | Paddleton
Actress and model Sierra Fisk is a graduate of the University of California San Diego, with her degree in Theatre. Fisk also trained at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England, preparing her for such future roles as Ophelia in "Hamlet," Mia Wallace in "Pulp Shakespeare," Marie in "Woyzeck," ...
Sarah aka Marrow. Marrow's backstory starts off being part of the morlocks. However I'd like elaborate that she was probably a an abandoned due to her premature mutation and therefore the morlocks only named her Sarah without knowing her last name. Marrow joins the future X-men in WATXM, she is very aggressive but has a strong sense of responsibility to those close to her such as Rover (A sentinel be befriended). However she betrays Charles Xavier when she blames Rover's death on his mission causing Vanisher (Who teleported her to safety) to abandon her. I chose Fisk for the character because Marrow has red hair and unnatural bright pink/purple skin also Marrow shows feats of Acrobatics and martial arts which will suit Fisk who is stunt woman.
73. Joe Hallett
Stunts | Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist
Joseph James Hallett was born on August 16th 1991 in Yeovil, Somerset, England. At the age of 7 years old he took up training in Martial Arts predominantly Freestyle Kickboxing. After his first class in this combat sport he never looked back. He started travelling the country entering numerous ...
Telford Porter aka Vanisher. Vanisher was a classical one-man villain in the X-men comics. He performs thefts with his teleportation and over time developed a more grotesque technique. Decapitation, Amputation and organ removal by teleporting them off. This is something he claim teleporters should do more. (In WATXM Nightcralwer decapitates a sentinel with the same technique and amputates Spirals mechanical arms aswell to threaten her as she "has no more mechanical arms to lose".) Vanisher appears as a member of the WATXM being on of the most valuable allies saving them with his powers. In the films he is cameos as one of Magnetos mutants in Last Stand however his teleportation smokey like Nightcrawlers rather than a flash of Ultraviolet light. I chose Hallett because he matches Vanishers height of 5'5", he is martial artist and stunt man most well known for being Togo Igawa's stunt double in Street fighter: Assassin's Fist. So he portray Vanisher as a fighter much like Nightcrawler.
74. Amber Skye Noyes
Actress | Beauty and the Beast
Amber Skye Noyes is a New York based actor, singer, and songwriter. She gained an early start in the business with brother and fellow actor Tyler Noyes, appearing in commercials, voice overs, and small television roles. Originally hailing from New Jersey, Amber went on to attend Emerson College and...
Angelica Jones aka FireStar. A character that is not very well known by most. Firestar is a pyro-kinetic mutant. She first appears in a spiderman cartoon as a member of the X-men alongside Iceman. In WATXM she is one of the mutant prisoners of the sentinels and then later joins the future X-men. Her red hair notably become fire when her powers activate. I feel American Actress Amber Noyes fits the height, Red Hair and age for this character.
75. Grace Bruce
Stunts | World War Z
Laura Kinney aka X-23. twenty third clone of Wolverine, X-23 is not a girl you wanna piss off. She made her debut in X-men: Evolution (Where for some reason she has brown skin and brunette hair), she was so popular that she became an actual character in the comics. Grace Bruce is a British Stunt Woman and Martial Artist. She is 5'1" tall which is X-23's height and has dark hair and pale skin to match. whilst X-23 is not confirmed to be born or raised in Canada I would assume she is. which is a bit of a problem for Bruce. But other than that I feel Grace Bruce is perfect. In addition, in the comics X-23 and Hellion are known to be quite the couple which is something I'd like to reference if possible.
Actor | Quantum of Solace
Dominikos Petrakis aka Avalanche. For everyone who knows nothing about Avalanche except from what you saw in X-men: Evolution, here's fact about him. He is of Greek descent and Dominikos Patrekis is his real name, not Lance Alvers. However I liked the portrayal of the character in Evolution as he kinda reminds me of a young magneto. For a live action series, I felt that British actor Kassianides would suit the role as he is of Greek descent (Greek Cypriot to be exact) and he looks like Avalanche in Evolution with his light tan and slim, tall frame. Avalanche appears as cameo in Last Stand apparently as one of the Mutant following Magneto. Here is the link so you can see what he looked like: http://marvel-movies.wikia.com/wiki/Dominikos_Petrakis
77. Kevin Durand
Actor | X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Kevin Durand was born on January 14, 1974 in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada as Kevin Serge Durand. He is an actor, known for X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), I Am Number Four (2011) and Robin Hood (2010). He has been married to Sandra Cho since October 1, 2010.
Frederick Dukes aka Blob. reprising the role. Blob was originally supposed to appear in the original X-men films. However he along with Pyro, Nightcralwer and Beast were cut off due to budgeting. However he was recreated as a member of Team X probably to replace Mastodon (A team X member who died from old age due to an ineffective artificial healing factor). Kevin's performance on Blob is amazing and I feel he was the best guy for the role.
78. Tom Felton
Tom Felton was born in Epsom, Surrey, to Sharon and Peter Felton. He has been acting since he was 8 years old at the suggestion of an actress friend of his family who recognized Felton's theatrical qualities. Felton met with an agent, and two weeks later, after auditioning with over 400 other ...
Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver. Before watching X-men: Last Stand. My choice for Quicksilver was Tom Felton. I thought Quicksilver is German Jew much like his parents Max Eisenhardt and Magda Eisenhardt. but he was raised in Transia (Fictional East European Nation). I knew that realistically, the films were likely to get British actor much like Fassbender and McKellen. I chose Felton because Draco Malfoy and Quicksilver have many similarities: White hair (platinum blond for all you ladies out their), both are arrogant, sarcastic and confident, both are potentially very powerful but have been defeated in embarrassing ways (Malfoy landing on his groin after Harry zaps him and Quicksilver crashing into a wall due to shadowcat phasing), both had a strong loyalty to their family, both believed their kind to be superior (Pure-Bloods and Mutants) and most importantly both are actually good deep down (Malfoy in Half-Blood Prince couldn't kill Dumbledore and was uncomfortable being among the deatheaters, especially when they torture others. Quicksilver in the comics switches sides.) When Avenger and X-men both fought over the rights for Quicksilver I thought X-men's Quicksilver was gonna be: European (Play by a European actor), be an antagonist and use the name Pietro. I thought Avengers quicksilver was going to be: A hero (Like he was when he joins the avengers), be Americanised (Since Avengers is not about Diversity) and use the name Peter. But I was so so so so very wrong. While Evan Peters performance as Quicksilver was OK. I was annoyed that he wasn't European or used the name Pietro cause the name Peter now sounds very bland considering Colossus' name Piotr was changed to Peter and the fact Spiderman and Starlord's real names are Peter.
79. George Sampson
Actor | Waterloo Road
George Sampson won series 2 of Britains Got Talent in 2008. He then starred in the west end production of 'Into The Hoods' before making his own Music DVD, charting at no. 1 in the charts. He then went onto star as Eddie in feature film: Street Dance 3D, kick starting an acting career which saw hi ...
Young Mortimer Toynbee aka Toad. I don't know why x-men: Days of Future Past portrays Toad as an American Soldier during the Vietnam war as he was portrayed as British in the first X-men film. I mean did Stryker Kidnap him from Britain, force him to use an American accent and then decide to experiment on him (Along with Havok, Ink and Spike). It doen't make sense. Additionally Toad actually appears as one of the Mutant Prisoners in Wolverine's Origin. George Sampson is a British Dancer and Actor. He is very acrobatic which suits Toad and knows how to pull off Cocky, Sarcastic characters like Toad in the original Film. Interestingly enough Toad once tried to commit suicide by leaping of a bridge before Spiderman stops him. Sampson plays as Kyle Stack in Waterloo Road who was a Bad boy that got sent to prison but returns in a late series as a reformed introvert. He tries to commit suicide in a similar manner by jumping off the roof but is stopped by a teacher. Toad's inferiority complex stemmed from him being a test tube baby whose mutation was made deficient by Kurtis Marko (Juggernaut's Dad) and then left at a care home where he was mentally abused due to his damaged condition.
80. Daniel O'Neill
Stunts | Ultraviolet
Daniel O'Neill is a British born Martial Arts Action Actor, known mainly for his role as 'Dan' in Bangkok Adrenaline and for his role as the Fixer in the movie 'Fixer'. After watching many Hong Kong action movies as a child, Daniel became very fond of Jackie Chan and saw him as a role model. Daniel...
Mortimer Toynbee aka Toad. Due to Ray Parks performance in the first film. The comics had changed Toad by having his Genetic damage fixed and mutating him so that he was more powerful and was more like the film counterpart. Due to Ray Parks age I kinda left him out and I thought who could replace such an amazing martial art actor. Then O'Neill came to mind. O'Neill is British Martial Arts stunt man and actor, he matches Toad's height in being 5'9", is acrobatic and skilled to play Toad in the same way Park did.
Actress | Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Georgina Leonidas was born on February 28, 1990 in London, England. She is an actress, known for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009), Nine (2009) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011).
Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch. Georgina Leonidas is British Actress of Greek-Cypriot descent. She is experienced in playing Witches as she did in Harry Potter and In Wizards vs Alien (Yes, there is such a show that exists). I felt that her heritage could help her portray a realistic east European accent as Wanda was also raised in Transia. Sure a Greek or Cypriot accent is probably not the same, but I'm hoping she could pull it off.
82. Kristen Johnston
Actress | 3rd Rock from the Sun
Kristen Johnston studied acting at the Atlantic Theater Company Acting School in New York City.
She won two Emmys for her role on 3rd Rock from the Sun (1996). She has appeared on many other television shows, including Ugly Betty (2006), ER (1994), Bored to Death (2009) and, perhaps most memorably, ...
Sarah Ryall aka Scanner. She is a member of the Acolytes, in WATXM tv series she is one of Magneto's loyal Acolytes who normally is there to show him what the Genoshans are doing or contact the Brotherhood. However despite her usage as Magneto's all-in-one Holographic TV, CCTV Security and Skype. She is powerful as she can fire electric shocks that can also harm astral forms somehow. Kristen was my choice for the character because Scanner is known to be 6'1" tall and Kristen is only an inch off.
83. Richard Cetrone
Stunts | Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Richard Cetrone was born on July 13, 1961 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. He is known for his work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) and Captain America: Civil War (2016).
Seamus Mellencamp. Another member of Magneto's Acolytes in the WATXm cartoons. He is very much a green reptilian version of Beast however there is little character development and it is implied that he is more of a loyal henchman that doesn't voice his own opinions and he certainly is not as smart as Beast. Richard Cetrone is an American Actor and Stunt man. His showreel show him stunt doubling for werewolves and because of his height of being 6'3" he can easily rival that of Kelsey Grammar's Beast.
84. Bernard White
Actor | The Matrix Revolutions
Actor Bernard White is recognizable from his work in over 30 feature films. White just wrapped a lead role in Quarantine (2008). To date, his most memorable roles include "Agha Babur" in American Dreamz (2006), and "Rama-Kandra" in The Matrix Reloaded (2003), and The Matrix Revolutions (2003). ...
Suvik Senyaka. Bernard White is a Sri Lankan born American Actor. He is of Sri Lankan descent which is fitting for Suvik Senyaka who is from Sri Lanka. Senyaka's name initially made be believe he was a Buddhist from East or South East Asian but his first name sounded like it came from another region of Asia. I found out that in fact he is a Sri Lankan and possibly Buddhist. He works from Magneto as a an Acolyte and is very powerful due to his ability to conjure an energy snare that electrocute and/or drain the energy off his victims. He also was once allied with Selene the Black Queen of the Hellfire club aswell.
85. Mark Luu
Actor | Pacific Rim
Mark Luu was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 15, 1987. He is an identical triplet known together as the "Luu brothers" or "Luu triplets". He started in the entertainment industry in 2004 and took on various projects including print ads, commercials and music videos. His first ...
Eric Kleinstock. The Kleinstocks are Triplets who have the ability to fire plasma and propel themselves whilst creating a bio-electrical force field. Eric was known to die in his first mission. However in the WATXM tv series he is alive with his two other identical brothers.
86. Lance Luu
Actor | Pacific Rim
Lance Luu was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 15, 1987. He is an identical triplet known together as the "Luu brothers" or "Luu triplets". He started in the entertainment industry in 2004 and took on various projects including print ads, commercials and music videos. His first ...
Harlan Kleinstock. Another more impressive ability of the Kleinstock Bros is that they can merge together to become one large muscular guy with very straight forward Tank abilities like: Strength, Stamina, Durability, etc. But he still retains the plasma blasts and force fields.
87. Charles Luu
Actor | Pacific Rim
Charles Luu was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 15, 1987. He is an identical triplet known together as the "Luu brothers" or "Luu triplets". He started in the entertainment industry in 2004 and took on various projects including print ads, commercials and music videos. His first...
Sven Kleinstock. As you guys can see I've chosen the Luu triplets as my choice for the Kleinstock bros. The only issue I see here is that they are Canadia and of Vietnamese/Chinese descent. Whilst in the comics they are Caucasian and possible Scandinavian.
88. Christopher Egan
Actor | Letters to Juliet
A native of Sydney, Australia, Christopher Egan attended high school at Sydney's McDonald College School of Performing Art and honed his skills at the Sydney Festival Dance School, where he trained in singing, dancing and acting with Kick Performance Group. His performances in "Les Miserables" and ...
St John Allerdyce aka Pyro. I disliked the fact that not only X-men couldn't be bothered to find an Australian actor for Pyro but they didn't even try to do an Australian accent. They also removed the St from his full name. I personally would want a true Aussie to play such a character and Egan is one Aussie I've been wanting for this role ever since I found out he was Australian. I first saw him in Eragon and Resident Evil: Extinction.
89. Bingbing Fan
Actress | X-Men: Days of Future Past
Bingbing Fan was born 16 September 1981. She is a Chinese actress, television producer and pop singer.

Clarice Ferguson aka Blink. Reprising the Role. In the x-men comics Blink's nationality and ethnicity is unknown however the films made her Chinese. She is a member of the Free Mutants who help the X-men change the past whilst surviving the apocalyptic future. In WATXM she is one of Magneto's acolytes but then sides with Scarlet Witch and Banishes both Magneto and Quicksilver from Genosha.

Philippa Sontag aka Arclight. The field leader of Mr.Sinister's Marauders. She has the ability to make purple shockwaves. According to the marvel Wiki she is born in Vietnam and is possible of partial Vietnamese descent. Mai an American Actress of 1/4 Chinese descent and 3/4 Vietnamese descent. All she needs is to build some muscle (Arclight does body building) and dye her hair purple.
92. Nathan Jones
Actor | Mad Max: Fury Road
Nathan Jones is an Australian actor, power-lifting champion, strongman, and former WWE professional wrestler. He rose upon the world strongman scene in 1995, and showed magnitude to become perhaps the top competitor in the world. At 6' 11" and 330 lbs. of muscle & mayhem, the giant Australian known...
Michael Baer aka Blockbuster. The muscle of the Marauders and also one of the Marauders famous for the massacre of the Morlocks. He alongside Vertigo appear in WATXM, where they are chasing Berzerker in the sewers, (a reference to the morlock massacre) Cyclops saves Ray by blasting both Blockbuster. Jones has many similarities with the character both are bald and muscular and both stand at 6'10" tall.
93. Kurly Tlapoyawa
Stunts | Sicario
Kodiak Noatak aka Harpoon. Another one of Mr.Sinister's marauders. Nothing much is known about Harpoon except that he was part of an Inuit tribe. His main powers is to somehow charge longitudinal objects (Stabbing or poking weapons) so they become energy harpoons capable of crippling Shadowcat even when she is phasing. Tlapoyawa is a martial art's stunt man and he is of Native American descent. Mexikah Nation to be exact. I felt that Reimagining Harpoon as a Inuit warrior who practices Tushka-homa and Okichitaw as his main martial arts would make him more like Gambit.
94. Eric Dane
Actor | X-Men: The Last Stand
Eric Dane was born on November 9, 1972, in San Francisco, California, the older of two brothers. His father is an architect and interior designer based in San Francisco. His mother, Leah (Cohn), was a homemaker. His ancestry includes English, German, Finnish, Russian Jewish, and Austrian Jewish, ...
Jamie Madrox aka MultipleMan He is mainly a hero in the comics and a member of Forges X-Factor. However the Films portray him as a mutant Bank Robber and in WATXM he is Mr.Sinister's Right hand man. He is seen overwhelming Cyclops before the X-men come to rescue him. It is possible that his association with Sinister was due to the fact Sinister has a habit of Cloning his minions and using MultipleMan's DNA would be the perfect template. Notably Sinister can only clone his Marauders in pairs. (Arclight and Vertigo, Blockbuster and Harpoon) Madrox is arguable an exception due to his abilities allow endless copies of himself.
95. Julie Gonzalo
Actress | A Cinderella Story
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Gonzalo moved to Miami, Florida when she was 8 years old.
Her first acting role came when she was 20 and she made a few TV appearances during the early 2000s, as well as appearing in some high profile movies (including Freaky Friday (2003)) but her breakthrough role ...
Vertigo (Savage Land Mutate) Partner of Arclight. Nothing much is known about her before she was mutated by Brainchild in the savage land. (Fictional Tropical island between South America and Antarctica). Julie is an actress of Argentinian Descent which matches the sort of background of the Savage Land the island would be near the parts of Antarctica that is owned by Argentina.
96. Jamie Foreman
Actor | Layer Cake
Sebastian Shaw aka Black King. Leader of the Hellfire Club/ Inner Circle. Sebastian Shaw intended to use the Phoenix force to rule over Humans with Mutant being the superior race. He notably enlisted the notorious Emma Frost to try and mind control Jean Grey for this. In the comics, Sebastian Shaw (Like most of the Hellfire members) had a European accent, he was also quite tall being about 6'2". However the films made him average and use an American accent. Whilst I did like Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw in the x-men films I still felt he was too different to the character especially since only the name and the association with the hellfire club and Emma frost was the only thing that felt like the comics. Personally British Actor Jamie Foreman knows how to play tough and charismatic villains his face looks like Shaw in the comics. However he is very short being 5'6" tall but I wanted this to be a sense of Irony as Sebastian Shaw was a very powerful individual and people would underestimate him (like wolverine) due to their height.
97. Robert Kazinsky
Actor | Pacific Rim
Robert Kazinsky was born Robert John Appleby in Haywards Heath, Sussex, England, to Phyllis and Paul Appleby, and grew up in the seaside town of Brighton, on England's southern coast. Both of his parents are from Polish Jewish/Russian Jewish families.
Kazinsky studied theatre at the Guildford School...
Donald Peirce aka White Bishop. Another member of the Hellfire club. He is a cyborg which contrasts with the rest of the group who are mutants. He is much taller than his fellow members of the HellFire club and has blonde hair.
98. Timothy Spall
Timothy Leonard Spall was born in Battersea, London, to Sylvia R. (Leonard), a hairdresser, and Joseph L. Spall, a postal worker. He was raised in London. Spall auditioned and earned a spot with the National Youth Theatre and later showed great promise at RADA where he portrayed the title roles in ...
Harry Leland aka Black Bishop. In the comics Leland is a overwieght, short and unathletic mutant. He also has Red hair so overall he resembles Spall in many ways. He makes up for his lack of Physique with his Gravitaional powers where he forces people into the ground by increasing the gravity pull around them.
Actress | Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
Elisabetta Canalis was born on September 12, 1978 in Sassari, Sardinia, Italy. She is an actress, known for Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo (2005), Virgin Territory (2007) and Fratelli Benvenuti (2010). She has been married to Brian Perri since September 14, 2014. They have one child.
Selene Gallio aka Balck Queen. The main female member of the Hellfire club and rival to Emma Frost the White queen. Equally as sexy and poisonous Selen claims to have been alive for 1700 years and notably lived in Italy during the roman empire. So it makes sense for an Italian actress to play Selene. She can be described as a psychic vampire as she drains the life force of others to keep herself young and beautiful aswell as enhance her powers, heal herself and have psychic powers like telekenisis and telepathy. She is also a skilled suductress much like her rival the White Queen.
100. Bruce Davison
Actor | X-Men
With his blond, clean-cut, Ivy League handsomeness and ready-whipped smile reminiscent of Kennedyesque times, actor Bruce Davison fits the prototype of today's more current crop of fresh-faced, likable blonds such as Brian Kerwin and Aaron Eckhart. While it proved difficult at times for the actor ...
Senator Robert Kelly. Reprising the role. Whilst he had a huge role in the cartoons especially Wolverine and the X-men. He was only present in the first 2 film one as himself and the other being impersonated by Mystique. He pushes for the Mutant registration act and project Wideawake which lead to the mutant vs human war and the rise of the sentinels.
