Im not usually a science fiction type movie fan, but I enjoyed Ironman.

I thought “Iron Man” was one of the best superhero movies I’ve ever seen, Ben. It was really entertaining, with a good mix of action and an occasionally funny comedic bit. Very good cast too. Downey Jr. is a perfect Tony Stark.

wayyy to predictable and was only a establishing movie for the next few, not that great, hopefully the others will be more action packed. PS they should try and not put the best clips in the movie on the trailer, it kills the movie.

Okay first off Leonardo DiCaprio would not make a good Cap’t at All!

Captain America
I think Jensen Ackles would make a great Captain America. Why Well he’s tough from playing Dean Winchester in Supernatural, he has the American acsent, he has humor, about the right age as Captain America, and has the look of a hero. Red Skull should be the villain. He should be played by Viggo Mrtenson. Why Well he is tough, he’s a great acotr, and he can be a great villain.

I don’t know who should be Thor, but Loki should be the villain. Loki should be played by Mathew Marsden. He has that personality and acting stlye that could make him a great villain.

Iron Man 2

Well all the main cast from the first should return. The villain should be the Mandarin, or at least be known in it. The Mandarin should be played by Chow Yun Fat. He’s a great actor, and was kind of a villain in Pirates at World’s End. He would be an awesome villain.

The Avengers

Robert Downey Jr. should return as Tony StarkIron Man. Terrence Howard needs to either make an appearence as Jim Rhodes or War Machine. Ed Norton needs to return as Bruce Banner The Incredible Hulk. Sam Jackson needs to come in as Nick Fury. Jensen Ackles needs to come as Steve RogersCaptain America. I don’t have any ideas for the others.

So that’s all my cast from Captain America to the Avengers.

Steve RogersCaptain America- Jensen Ackles
Red Skull- Viggo Mortenson

Loki- Mathew Marsden

The Mandarin- Chow Yun Fat

Tony StarkIron Man- Robert Downey Jr
