It's great Marvel can make movies with limited story telling, but still somehow convince people something 'epic' is happening. I enjoy Iron Man. But I feel like I've already seen IM3 with all the tv previews. Tony Stark is where I draw the marvel line. The new idea of Thor is good, but have you guys watched yourself watching those movies? Chris Heimsf*** yourself? Really geeks? We are not 16 year old girls. Chris Evans was cool in Sunshine.. lol but he never convinced me he was a Captain with no helmet America. That is another thing .. the Avengers had a respectable array of head gear that was completely forgotten about after Thor took off his helmet within the first 15 minutes of his solo, at best questionable, film.f

Fox doesn't own the term "mutant". That's funny someone mentioned that. Marvel/Disney just can't reference any of Fox's x-men and related characters. It's not copyrighted. I love the idea of Scarlet Witch. Avengers needs another heavy hitter to combat Thanos. She's an Avenger anyway and really never was associated with the x-men. I only see Rachel Weisz in the role. She has the look...see OZ the Great and Powerful.

My top pick would be Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for Quicksilver.

But since it is Hollywood, and they like big name actors, maybe Jared Leto (but not Chapter 27 Jared Leto haha)

It has to be more of a lean built, narrow faced actor.

And if they are going for younger...I hate to agree, but Robert Pattison does have the right look for Pietro

 True, Fox doesn't own the word "mutant", but as I stated before, the part of Fox that produces the X-Men movies sued the part of Fox that produced the show "Mutant X", which had absolutely NOTHING to do with Marvel comics, and actually won a settlement.  It was enough that the show was using the term in a show about superheroes.  Don't try to tell me that they wouldn't try to go after Disney if they use the term in "The Avengers."  Stupidity like that is what causes awesome movies to be delayed.

 Really?  We're eating comments again?

 I'll one more time to see if this posts.  If not, look up Mutant X at Wikipedia, and check out the lawsuits section.  I had some misinformation, by the way...Fox didn't sue itself, but they tried to sue Marvel over the term mutant and how it related to the show Mutant X.

 "In 2001, 20th Century Fox sued Marvel, Tribute Entertainment, and Fireworks Entertainment for breach of their licensing agreement and false advertisement. Fox stated it had exclusive rights from Marvel to develop the X-Men property, and anything similar was an infringement. Fox claimed that Mutant X was too similar to X-Men, and Mutant X was being advertised as an "X-Men replacement."

Marvel counter-sued Fox, saying that the two were dissimilar and asking the courts to allow Mutant X production to go forward. Production was allowed, as long as X-Men material was not used in the promotion of Mutant X. Apparently, the title "Mutant X" itself was deemed too close to "X-Men" to be effectively leveraged.
In 2003, Fox and Marvel resolved their differences in a confidential settlement of their suits. Meanwhile, Fox continued to pursue their case against Tribune and Fireworks. Tribune sued Marvel for fraud and breach of contract, claiming Marvel encouraged Tribune to connect Mutant X to the X-Men, misrepresented what they were getting in their license, and caused millions in losses due to the need to alter story lines and characters to ensure the mandated distance between Mutant X and X-Men, as well as fighting Fox's litigation."

Jessica Chastain as Wanda she's natural redhead, she wouldn't need a wig or hair color. She's a great actress.

 Daybreak - I think we watched different movies.  It could be the 40 years of anticipation I'd experienced that made seeing my childhood heroes on the big screen so overwhelming that I didn't notice the flaws.  No, wait.  I did notice flaws.  But none of them are what you listed.  So, yeah ... different movies.
