5 Marvel characters Blake Lively would be perfect to play
Blake Lively survived the tabloid scrutiny as Serena van der Woodsen in the Gossip Girl cast, foiled a hungry Great White in the shallows, made himself a vengeful assassin in The rhythm section and, of course, became a DC movie star with The Green Lantern in 2011. However (unlike her co-star and now husband Ryan Reynolds), she has yet to make a return to superhero movies and, having starred in one of the biggest critical and commercial flops like, I can understand the hesitation. Maybe Lively would be a game if given a good enough role in the Marvel movies, like this one really. fantastic hero.
Even before Disney merged with Fox (absorbing rights to comic book characters that Marvel Studios did not previously have), fans were demanding that the Fantastic Four be inducted into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What has kept the powerful group attractive for so many decades is their relativity, with each of the characters reflecting some archetypal characteristics of an average family member. Human Torch and The Thing have a sort of rival brotherhood, while the stretchy Mr. Fantastic leads the team like a father, and his wife, Invisible Woman, keeps them all under control like a mother would.
I can’t help but imagine that Blake Lively’s relationship with Ryan Reynolds and their two children would be similar to that of Sue Storm with her teammates. So (since popular choice among fans, Emily Blunt, doesn’t seem too interested in donning spandex anytime soon), I think she would be the perfect choice to play the see-through, force-field-projected heroine in the upcoming one. MCU. The Fantastic Four to restart. And you thought I picked Invisible Woman for her blonde hair, right?
To be perfectly frank, hair color was actually a big factor when choosing Emma Frost as a possible character for Blake Lively to play. However, I promise you, that’s not the only reason I considered her as a candidate if the mutant shows up at Marvel Studios. X Men reboot (also made possible by the Disney / Fox merger).
On the one hand, I personally believe that Emma Frost deserves a more faithful and lively portrayal (no pun intended) than what we got in 2011. X-Men: First Class with January Jones in the role (with all due respect to the former Mad Men cast member). Second, the rare times Blake Lively broke up with her “good girl” character (as in A simple favor) has resulted in some of his best work, in my opinion. Therefore, present her as an ice queen literally and figuratively in the X Men the movies sound like an amazing game to me.
Another memorable performance by Blake Lively can be found in the shallows – one of the most surprisingly entertaining horror films of 2016. The thriller – directed by Jaume Collet-Serra – stars Lively as a woman on vacation surfing a secluded beach when she is trapped a bit too far from shore by a great white shark which also hides close for added comfort. Perhaps surviving the aquatic beast would have been easier to accomplish if it had the ability to control sea creatures …
One Marvel character who possesses such an ability (among other things of an amphibious nature) is Llyra Morris – the schizophrenic daughter of a human woman and an Atlantean man. She would become an accomplice in the murder of Leonard McKenzie, who is the father of Namor the Sub-Mariner (another chapter fans look forward to seeing in the MCU. Casting Blake Lively as Llyra would give her both the chance to play a another villain when Namor finally gets his own movie and lets him do some makeup for this shark’s hell the shallows pass him through.
Blake Lively’s very first leading role in a movie was in Adaline’s age in 2015, as the main character who, after a freak accident at the beginning of the 20th century, mysteriously receives the gift of eternal life. Well, because it’s not very uncommon for Marvel characters to be immortal, I’d rather find him an opposite or immortal character, but not necessarily “mortal” either. So, it seems the natural choice would be to cast her the opposite of life personified.
In the Marvel Comics Universe, death itself takes on human form as the woman Thanos would fall in love with, inspiring him to concoct the cataclysmic plan that then served as the basis for Avengers: Infinity War in the hope of appeasing him. Well, as we know, that story never made it into the finished movie (to the satisfaction of most fans), but there’s a chance it could still be a part of MCU canon. How? ‘Or’ What? While she would reject Thanos’ advances, however, she fell in love and married the Merc with a Mouth.
Now, I realize that picking Ryan Reynolds’ wife to play Deadpool’s wife is just a little too much on the nose, although being on the nose is, indeed, a key factor in the character’s signature meta-humor. . That’s why I’ve included an alternate suggestion that is less obvious, but still a lot of fun, and that would give Blake Lively the chance to share the screen with her husband when the fourth groundbreaking antihero finally makes his debut in the game. MCU: Make her her interdimensional female counterpart.
There is an insane amount of alternate versions of Deadpool that exist throughout the Marvel Multiverse – one of which is a woman named Wanda Wilson, otherwise known as “Lady Deadpool” to avoid confusion when she crosses paths with Wade Wilson in the comics. . This weird team would actually lead to a weird and somewhat narcissistic romantic moment between the boisterous mercenaries that I think would be quite fun to include in a future Deadpool movie, especially if Blake Lively was in the role. However, regardless of the comparisons to real life, the actress has the right kind of energy and unflinching sense of humor that this character needs.
You know, these hypothetical comic book movie casting suggestions are really something we do for fun, but I’ve never been more in love with an idea than seeing Blake Lively as Lady Deadpool. Hopefully Ryan Reynolds has the same idea and convinces his wife to do it because it’s gold if you ask me.
