I’ve always thought Josh Holloway, who played Sawyer in one of the greatest series of all time that recently ended its run, would be perfect as Gambit but of course, that role went to Taylor Kintsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But that doesn’t mean Holloway could never work with Marvel because Avengersnews.com has heard a marvelous rumor that the studio is in talks with the Lost star…
The website said there’s been talks about a certain “lead role” in an upcoming Marvel movie. Now, that’s all the world knows so far but there are speculations as to which role that he might be pursuing or which role that might’ve been offered to him. Here are some hints that come to mind and I’ve taken a few paragraphs from Marvel.com to let you in on who these characters are…
A.K.A Yellowjacket, Pym has an important role in THE AVENGERS and its sequels, lead role in ANT-MAN spin-off.
“Dr. Henry “Hank” Pym was a brilliant scientist who spent much of his time in his lab. At one point, he met and married the beautiful Maria Trovaya. Unfortunately, when travelling in her home country of Bratislavia, she was captured by revolutionaries, and, despite Pym’s efforts, she was killed.
One day he discovered a process in which he would manipulate a newly discovered group of subatomic particles through magnetic fields. Pym tested the serums on himself, and had accidentally shrunk himself to the size of an ant and was trapped inside an anthill. Once normal sized, Pym destroyed the serums, thinking that they were too dangerous . He rethought his decision, and recreated the serums, dubbing them “Pym Particles” and developing a formula that would enable himself to shrink and return to normal size. He also worked on a cybernetic helmet to enable him to communicate and study ants. Pym was also working on behalf of the government to find to work on a formula to help provide immunity to low-level radiation. It was then that several Soviet KGB Agents broke in, attempting to kill Pym and destroy his work. Pym donned the cybernetic helmet and newly designed protective suit, shrank himself, and escaped outside, to the anthill. There, he gained control of the ants, and attacked the agents and freed his assistants.”
A.K.A Clint Barton/Hawkeye, possible S.H.I.E.L.D. member in THE AVENGERS with a starring role in the S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off or a future Avengers sequel
“Hawkeye is a character that who became a superhero after seeing Iron Man in action. He fell in love with Black Widow (played by Scar-Jo in IRON MAN 2) a spy for the Soviet Union. She tricked him into helping her to steal technology developed by Tony Stark. After battling and defeated by Iron Man, he decided to join the good guys, Hawkeye applied for membership in THE AVENGERS and was accepted.”
“An officer of S.H.I.E.L.D. and is one of the most experienced members of Nick Fury’s team, known for his marksmanship with rifles and for his impressive physique. He is likely most recognized for his trademark derby hat.”
Who do you think Holloway should play?
