Almost all of these are writing problems. Not casting issues. I really don't see why characters need to be recast because the writing was off.
HAUSMAN01 - 3/28/2022, 2:58 PM
@Origame - agreed but knowing Fiege and the Marvel suits they're going to want to go in a new direction
Origame - 3/28/2022, 3:10 PM
@HAUSMAN01 - I get that's sadly the reality we're getting. But I'm more criticizing the article claiming these characters need to be recast, and their reasons have nothing to do with the performances of the cast.

Okay the only guy I don't like on this list is Leland Owsley, but putting him on this list is also pointless, because The Owl (the famous Dd rogue) was supposed to be in Season 4 (together with Typhoid Mary), as the son of Leland, coming to get his revenge for the death of his father.

The only actress I'm afraid they'll recast, even tho she was awesome, is Elodie Yung, as Elektra.

I'd love for Finn Jones to return... however I think Marvel will try to go the Ultimate Spider-Man route and pick a younger actor, who'd buddy up with Spider-Man or Echo.

Maybe Shang-Chi could be his mentor (rather his opponent as we rumoured)
HAUSMAN01 - 3/28/2022, 3:03 PM
@UXASIS - If they do recast and go younger my top choices for Danny are Forrest Wheeler,Ian Chen,or Jace Norman
GhostDog - 3/28/2022, 12:21 PM
The Luke Cage recasting could do a lot.

Dear website, just report the news, your clickbait opinions are not required.
McMurdo - 3/28/2022, 12:23 PM
I'd recast all of em except Daredevil honestly. Including Jessica Jones.
LongMayHeReign - 3/28/2022, 2:17 PM
@McMurdo - Every single main lead can be recast except Cox and Bernthal imo, but without a shadow of a doubt Finn has to go. Whether he slightly improved in S2 or not (and whether or not it's mostly his fault or not) he is the face of one of Marvel's most disliked shows.

McMurdo - 3/29/2022, 9:10 AM
@LongMayHeReign - I agree not sure how I forgot Bernthal. He's amazing.
inkniron - 3/28/2022, 12:26 PM
Meh, they could recast the entire series and I wouldn't bat eye.

Except David Tennant. That man is a treasure.
rychlec - 3/28/2022, 12:28 PM
I'd definitely like to see a bigger, badder Luke Cage and, without a doubt, an Iron Fist who has taken at least one karate class, which is one more than Finn took. I liked Taylor as Hellcat though. She rocked that yellow suit for the 5 seconds she wore it.
UXASIS - 3/28/2022, 12:28 PM
I'm really intrigued to see how they handle Netflix actors interactions, despite Netflix being non-canon.

They really should think hard on how to make a scene between Kingpin and Daredevil and make it exciting, when technically they'd be fighting for like the second (or third if you consider the S2 prison fight) time.

They'll probably set them up as being long-time enemies, who have fought for a while.
Menks123 - 3/28/2022, 12:29 PM
Actually agree with all of these.
FilmDork1221 - 3/28/2022, 12:43 PM
What an appalling take! Alice Eve and Rachael Taylor gave outstanding performances, and Mike Colter IS Luke Cage.

Bring them all back
LongMayHeReign - 3/28/2022, 2:21 PM
@FilmDork1221 - If Mike Coulter "IS" Luke Cage then they need to put Luke Cage on the shelf, because that brotha was boring as hell. Mahershala was the only reason to watch that show imo and after he died it was just plain boring.
UXASIS - 3/28/2022, 1:24 PM
I'd definitely bring back Killgrave and make him an antagonist for Daredevil, with Tennant that could be a lot of horrific fun.

Same goes for Jigsaw.

aRush - 3/28/2022, 2:23 PM
@UXASIS - I'm not familiar with Echo's comic history so I have no idea if they've ever been put in a comic together, but I could see it being interesting to pit Echo against Tennant's Kilgrave in her show.
UXASIS - 3/29/2022, 9:20 AM

At first I thought Echo'd be immune due to her deafness.

But in the comic books, they said he is producing some sort of pheromones with which he controls people.

(which doesn't kinda work in Jessica Jones, where he controls people through television).
aRush - 4/4/2022, 11:19 PM
@UXASIS - The show seemed to kind of play it both ways on how it worked. In my head I've gone with his ability to gain control is pheromone based (or was it a virus in the show? Not much different I suppose), but people need to know what he wants to react to his will so if they can't hear or see him there's no effect. In that vein it could be interesting to see him try to find ways to convey his commands to her like sign, writing etc to try and control her and her in turn trying to avoid using her sight to avoid that control.
UXASIS - 4/5/2022, 11:30 AM

One thing is a must: David Tennant must return in the MCU.

I know he has been fan-cast as Nightmare and stuff, but I'd rather have him as being a recurring antagonist, rather than one-off villain.

So Purple Man being the nemesis of all street-level heroes (just as Kingpin) that would be very nice.

Hate these type of articles
JDL - 3/28/2022, 1:43 PM
Can we get an ignore button for article authors please ?
TheRealMandarin - 3/28/2022, 1:54 PM
Recast Time! Ana Taylor Joy for Hell Cat

Arming Joseph for Luke Cage

Lucas Till for Iron Fist

Pablo Schriber for The Owl

Don't give two table spoons about Mary walker but I'd keep Elodie Young as Elektra tho

Sam Witwer for Nuke
