Marvel fans are already a lot aware of the actors who could have played Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but the actors who actually enacted in it were very close to appearing as very different characters.
So to aid you amazement, here are a bunch of characters that nearly opted for some other roles.
Chadwick Boseman playing the role of Drax!
As revealed by Sarah Finn who is the casting director of Marvel Studios, Chadwick originally auditioned to play Drax the Destroyer from Guardians of the Galaxy. She told that Boseman impressed Marvel a lot, even though the role he auditioned for went to Bautista. She said that everyone felt a strong urge to see him play as Black Panther.
Chris Pratt auditioned for Captain America!
Yes, this is true. Before Chris happened to enact the role of Star Lord, also known as Peter Quill, he tried his hand at playing Captain America. Sarah Finn disclosed about him on Disney plus that he did not fit much like the role he auditioned for but there was something so enchanting about him that was there in his heart.
Tom Hiddleston actually auditioned for Thor!
Here is some reveal. Can you ever imagine Tom Hiddleston, our so perfect Loki, as Thor? No, right? Me neither. Tom said that he initially auditioned to play Thor and that was what he was being considered for because he is tall and also blonde. Tom is classically trained too and that seemed to the mold for what Thor was as he would be a classical character. Den of Geek was told by him.
Michael B. Jordan trying out Falcon!
Obviously, the fans are so delighted that Michael B. Jordan did not get to enact as The Falcon or how would we have his such brilliant performance as Killmonger beside Black panther.
