Marvel Chromatic Casting Meme

So, [personal profile] crossedwires posted this, which made me crank up the photoshop and make a Danny Pudi!Spider-Man:


Which is totally cheating, because he has gloves on. But still!

Then [personal profile] bossymarmalade posted this, with Indira Varma as Jean Grey (and possibly the hottest Charles/Erik concept I've ever seen.) And in comments, someone suggested Michelle Rodriguez as Logan. And now I'm making a Michelle Rodriguez girl!Logan manip with dog tags and a cigar.

This is not what you would expect your family pharmacist to be quietly doing at her desk.

Guys, guys. Michelle Rodriguez as Logan/Indira Varma as Jean Grey. *dies a million swoony deaths*

Okay, I'm done now. The fruits of my labour - Michelle Rodriguez as Wolverine:

The straw fedora seemed utterly vital this morning, but now that I'm looking at it, I can't actually remember Logan ever wearing one. It looks okay though.

(I can totally deal with this meme catching on, btw. It's totally a meme now. I'm tagging this entry as a meme.)

ETA: It's definitely a meme - liviapenn has a post here - Spider-Man, Fantastic Four (Omar Epps as Doom!) and assorted other Marvel people.

ETA 2: Adding in entwashian's Buffy casting, so I can keep track of all the awesome.

ETA 3: second_batgirl has a Power Rangers of colour Marvel AU

ETA 4: trascendenza has completely recast Star Trek and DCU with women of colour

Ginormous Edit of Doom: I'm just going to start making a list at this point.
elspethdixon casts Daredevil - Aishwarya Rai as Elektra and Anthony Anderson as Foggy. (He would make a great Foggy!)
poisonivory casts the DCU, with Gina Torres as Black Canary, Zoe Saldana as Huntress, and OMG, Queen Latifah as Wonder Woman.
[personal profile] katarin casts also casts the DCU, this time with Jason Momoa as Clark Kent (so brilliant, it cannot be unseen!), and Kanye as Booster Gold. (Kanye!)
wingstodust cast Ash, Malinda Lo's lesbian Cinderella retelling, as a J-Drama. I don't know the novel, but I can certainly applaud a lesbian Cinderella story.
[personal profile] such_heights cast Harry Potter - Naveen Andrews as Sirius Black, people. NAVEEN ANDREWS! (Also Freema as Tonks! Such perfection!)
[personal profile] miarrow cast Friends. Now, I think I've seen maybe three episodes of Friends in my life, and even I can see the awesome that is John Cho as Joey.
eumelia cast New Who and a glorious all-female Torchwood. Parminder Nagra as Ianto! Gina Torres as Jack. Seriously, this has to get on my telly, stat.
dealan311 cast Star Wars. John Cho is Han Solo (and he shot first, natch.)
yahtzee63 cast Alias, with Noel Clarke as Sark! (Noel Clarke would make a terrifyingly sarcastic bad guy.)
handyhunter cast the Kate Shugak novels which are set in Alaska. An awesome cast for an awesome series.

Uber-ETA: I'm going to keep adding in links, but I want to also point people towards this post by [personal profile] dhobikikutti, a much bigger round up of links than I've got here.

He-- she will in this universe!

It's totally a meme now.

Look what you started: Buffy casting.

You're officially my hero.
Jan. 13th, 2010 04:26 pm (UTC)
And here's another one that I found via friendsfriends! :DD
Jan. 13th, 2010 06:47 am (UTC)
I can support Indira Varma playing just about anyone!
Jan. 13th, 2010 10:33 am (UTC)
Oh, absolutely! She's amazing. Now that I'm looking at your Lorne icon, I'm thinking Indira Varma would make a great Lilah.

I was hunting around for photos this afternoon, and found out she was in a neurosurgeon drama series that only lasted 3 weeks. Gonna be hunting that one down, even if it's lousy.

I watched that one! It was basically House, M.D. as played by Stanley Tucci! I liked it. (I think American tv is just over-saturated with medical dramas.)
Jan. 13th, 2010 09:28 am (UTC)
Wow, that's really interesting
In a LOT of ways, but I've just woken up and am too sleepy to get into it here. But yeah, interesting.
Jan. 13th, 2010 10:08 am (UTC)
Re: Wow, that's really interesting
I love all the different casts, and the huge range of actors that people are putting forward - different Emmas, different Jeans, it's awesome.

(It all started with a discussion about Will Smith playing Captain America - handyhunter linked to some posts here)
Jan. 13th, 2010 01:56 pm (UTC)
I Love this idea! Too bad that real casting agents don't have this kind of creative thinking.
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:44 am (UTC)
Yay! Maybe some of the awesome will filter through to the big names? In the meantime, we have so much pretty to look at.
Jan. 13th, 2010 07:11 pm (UTC)
Oh oh oh. These are brilliant. Thank you for making them and linking the others! *hearts in eyes*
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:45 am (UTC)
Yay! You're welcome! I hope this meme takes off, because it's making some really fantastic picspams.
Jan. 13th, 2010 09:30 pm (UTC)
This is such a fantastic idea!

Michelle Rodriguez as Logan/Indira Varma as Jean Grey. *dies a million swoony deaths*
Right there with you!
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:45 am (UTC)
Hold me! It's too much awesome! *holds you*
Jan. 13th, 2010 09:46 pm (UTC)
I think the Michelle!Logan image needs popped claws. It's the one element missing for complete hotness overload.
Jan. 13th, 2010 09:52 pm (UTC)
And oh my God, the Buffy one is awesome -- There's a different/extra element to seeing it done for a tv show, I think, possibly because tv is even more about the pretty white people than comics are.
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:49 am (UTC)
The Buffy one is amazing. My eyes are so drawn to that collection of characters - my brain is telling me that is something I really, really want to see. I wish the people in charge would take a chance on some variety in casting.

(I wish I could shop claws onto Michelle. I'm going to be rummaging in my old X-Men screen caps this weekend, see what I can rustle up.)
Jan. 16th, 2010 06:31 pm (UTC)
Your post has been linked in a Linkspam post
Jan. 18th, 2010 03:22 am (UTC)
Michelle as Logan is the best thing ever.
Jan. 21st, 2010 10:58 am (UTC)
Yay! She really, really is. She's just grabbed my imagination.

Woahhhhhhh I love how this turned into a Chromatic Casting meme!!!!! (I saw handyhunter's one, but I would have never guessed that it'd go meme, lol.)

I'm not sure if what I did last week counts, but on my book blog I casted everyone in a novel called Ash with an all-Japanese cast. Link if anyone's interested: Casting Ash in a J-drama AKA if Japan Ever Decided to Make A Lesbian!Cinderella Drama...

*______* I hope this meme just keeps on going!!!
Jan. 27th, 2010 11:22 am (UTC)
Yay! It's a great meme - and I've added your link to the ever-growing list.
Jan. 27th, 2010 11:22 am (UTC)
Thank you for the links! I've added them in.
Jan. 29th, 2010 12:19 pm (UTC)
Here's a stab at Star Wars

Edited at 2010-01-29 12:19 pm (UTC)
Jan. 30th, 2010 02:28 am (UTC)
Added in! You might want to drop a link here, it's a much more comprehensive list than I have. So much more of the awesome.
