Sooooo I'm trying desperately not to get sucked back into X-Men, but I heard recently they were making an X-Men: First Class movie and I couldn't resist looking into what I've missed the past several years that I've been away from the fandom. Wow. Bad idea. Baaaaaaad time to be a Scott/Jean fan. Needless to say, one of my most depressing weekends EVER.But back on point: I love fantasy casting, so it was fun looking for potential young Scotts and Jeans. I haven't found my perfect couple yet, but for now I used Kate Mara for Jean and Scott Porter for Scott. Please leave me your suggestions if you have any! But I have to say upfront that Kristen Stewart is the most awful Jean suggestion I've ever heard, so please refrain from that, haha.
They look good, even though I don't know both actors.Do you mind my advertising these two posters to others on another Broad?I just want to share them with more people.Edited at 2009-04-20 09:55 am (UTC)
Sure, absolutely. :) I'd love to hear what other people think of them, though this is pretty much the only S/J community I'm aware of.
Thanks a lot!
Scott Porter! <3 (He's a huge comic geek himself and I'm sure would be entertained by this, even though his dream is to play Havok.)Personally, my ideal First Class Jean is Molly C. Quinn from Castle.But either way, these posters are excellent!
Well, he'll have to deal with being a better fit for Cyclops (at least to me), hehe. Havok will never make it to the big screen anyway, not when big brother barely gets any screentime as it is as the freakin' leader of the team.Oh, she looks like she would be a good Jean! How old is she though? She looks really young. I would personally like to see them be college-age.Thank you! :)
Oh, I think he's a better Cyclops, too! But he seems attracted to the reckless blonds -- Havok and Hawkeye.According to people on the imdb boards, Molly Quinn is 15, which is a little young, but I've always thought of the First Class kids as teenagers -- they say they're college students in the book, but they don't feel like it, and I like the idea of them as high school students. (Plus, Molly acts much older than she is -- she isn't exactly Jean on Castle, but it's very easy to imagine her fitting that role.)
These are amazing - I love Scott's, particularly.
Thank you! Scott's was a lot harder than Jean's, much to my surprise!
aww, I love fantasy castings! and photoshoppings.have no ideas at the moment, sorry
Me too, hehe.
