We indeed have many amazing actors who have attractive appearances and talented acting skills. However, a superhero movie is a selective genre where you can’t just pick an actor and make it works. Some actors are more suitable for this genre than others. We are talking about their appearances, acting styles, experience as well as effective communication with directors.
Whenever a director feels at ease collaborating with a performer, he or she will strive to reuse and utilize them to the best of their abilities. It is a frequent practice at MCU. Plus, they have done it so well we often don’t even notice without paying a lot of attention. The number in the list of actors who have been recast in MCU films is endless.
