  1. Could Jennifer Lawrence play the new Lady Thor character? If Chris Hemsworth where to leave the logically choice could be to go that way with the character. I can buy Lawrence as a though chick who doesn’t take any crap from anyone, and she can handle that oldish style talking of Thor I would think since she is a strong actress.

    I don’t get all the hate for The Divergent Series. Is it the best thing ever? No, but come on its not Twilight bad. Some of the visuals looked awesome and I find the entire concept really cool.

  2. Please don’t have Jennifer Lawrence start with another franchise. I want to see her do another Winter’s Bone, not another Hunger Games or X-Men. She is too good of an actress to dedicated herself to so many franchises. Now before people crucify me I don’t dislike those movies or her performances in them. I just want her to do more sophisticated behavior.

    1. You are saying that like she can’ t do both though. During her time working on Hunger Games and X-Men she was nominated and won an Oscar. Actors always take those parts that pay the bills and the other parts that win awards.

      1. Yes I get that she can do both. Still those franchise movies take up a great deal of time and for every Hunger Games like movie she does that’s time she could have spent on better material giving better performances. And after Hunger Games and X-Men she could not work a day again in her life and be set for generations.

  3. The only person that I could see Jennifer Lawrence Playing is possibly Sharon Carter, but they already have someone in that role, but who’d complain if she stepped in to take her place? Would she work as She Hulk? I’d like to see her try maybe. Other than that I can’t think of anyone in the Avengers that fits her personality.

      1. I wouldn’t call Emily Vancamp a great actress by any stretch of the imagination. She was fine in Winter Solider but forgettable. Mainly cause she had like two scenes. Anyways Lawrence would be a gigantic upgrade so that’s a case I wouldn’t mind recasting. Not saying you have to do it, but if I was given the choice between the two actresses its a no brainier.

        1. What makes you say that Vancamp is not a good/great actress?? I’ve been thoroughly impressed with everything I’ve ever seen her do…

          1. I watched a couple episodes of that Revenge show and thought she was awful. It may not have been her but it was like Soap Opera level acting.

          2. Hmm I think you should watch the whole first or second season. I loved that show through the first three seasons!
