I just really hope they get Reed right and Doom right. The other characters I don't really care about but Reed and Doom I want so bad to be mainstays in the MCU.

I honestly can’t think of any bad MCU casting off the top of my head.

Gwyneth Paltrow is first that comes to mind for bad casting.

The casting has been excellent to be fair. The story/scripts sometimes don't do them justice but the casting has been on point.

For example take someone like Christopher Ecclestone as the Dark Elf guy in Thor 2 - it's easy to look at that and think - he was a bit gooseberry fool, but in reality Ecclestone was given strawberry float all to work with

I still think it would have been better if War Machine was Terrence Howard throughout.

There was an extra in Age of Ultron who I think pretended to fall over a bit too dramatically.

Really took me out of the scene.

Martin Freeman and his skin crawling American accent is the worst.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson did milk his death scene a bit that's true.

Bit harsh to call him an extra though.

I do always wonder what Americans actually make of these situations. He sounds awful to us so I can only imagine how bad he must sound to them.

I don't think he's quite on the same level as a cockney Dick Van Dyke or Robert Downey Jr's recent attempt at a Welsh accent

Had to look up who he played in the MCU and I had apparently completely forgotten his character existed! :lol:

My reaction when watching Black Panther again the other day was literally 'gods sake I forgot he was in this, what is wrong with his accent'.

His inclusion is a real low point in that film. It's not just a cameo either, he's main cast! With a story arc and everything!

I think he only exists in Priest’s Black Panther run. Don’t remember him much after that.

+1 for completely forgetting Martin Freeman was part of the MCU
