It has been one month since The Avengers came out and conquered the entire global Box Office.It’s unanimously agreed that this movie is a well executed phenomenon. But can this kind offilmmaking be possible in Kollywood? I was waiting for someone to do this, but decided todream up a dream cast myself. What do you think…?
Nick Fury – The guy who actually assembles this whole tag team. Actor of choice, Satyaraj.The role needs a cool, calculative demeanor and commanding presents. The veteran thespiancertainly has these traits. He should be able to talk down all these super heroes during internalface offs. Satyaraj with his expertise in strong dialog delivery and dead pan humor wouldcertainly fit the bill.
Iron Man / Tony Stark – Actor of choice Vikram. Tony Stark needs an arrogant charm abouthim. He needs to be a lovable rascal. Age range should be at 40+. Sharp funny punch linesare his trade mark. Chiyan Vikram is definitely a charming rascal with excellent punch linedeliveries.
Captain America / Steve Rogers – Actor of choice Jayam Ravi. The Cap is an out of place andtime character. He’s an orthodox minded old school character. Jayam Ravi could play the naïve,by the rule boy scout. He should be at lost at what’s happening around him. Certainly he has thephysics to match in action sequence.
Hulk / Dr Bruce Banner – Actor of choice Arjun. A slight different characterization for Arjun.A tussled, down ridden, bespectacled scientist. Just add on the green paint for the Hulk effect.Hulks shot can be done by super imposing or by forced perspective. No need CGI when we haveArjun around. Could be cost effective as well.
Thor – Actor of choice Arya. He’s already looking like a Greek god. Just add the additional hairand costume and he’ll feel right at home in Asgard.
Black Widow / Natasha Romanoff – Actor of choice Aishwarya Rai. This is a no braineractually.
Hawkeye / Clint Barton – Any of the young and upcoming could fill this spot.
Loki – The most obvious choice for the lead villain would be Prakash Raj, but let’s think of outof box here. This villain should be able to outwit any of the superheroes in one to one debate /battle… except maybe The Hulk. He’s a trickster that could manipulate the best of them. Havedeep anger for the world and little unstable in the mind as well. This intense portrayal is a perfectrole for… Thala Ajith Kumar. Heck, Thala might even do it for free to play around a character that’s this complicated.
Agent Phil Coulson – Actor of choice Vivek. He should play this character with the exactmannerism as Vivek did in Uthama Puthiran. The straight faced dead pan humor should do it.Delivering funny lines with seriousness is what this character is about.
Producer – Sun Pictures
Director – Shankar. Duh…Obviously.
Cinematography – K. V. Anand
Editing – Anthony
Music – 2 options:
1.Ilayaraja – No Song only BGS. All done with sweeping orchestral epic score.2.A R Rahman – 4 songs with BGS. Where can we fit songs in this kind of film you ask?Here are some options:-Tony Stark / Vikram party song. Could be filmed in his bachelor pad at Stark mansion. Adiscotheque type of song depicting his playboy, car free and fun life.-Loki on his orphaned life. Similar to Theeyil Viluntha Thena from Thala’s Godfather.Can be a montage sequence depicting Thor and Loki during their childhood days. The secondhalf of the song could feature Arjun as the suffering Hulk and for Ravi’s Captain America. Alook at their very lonely desolated life.-Avengers assembling montage. The pre-climax song showing the team training andpreparing together. Could insert funny sequence like Hulk beating them all in a sparring sessionbut defeated with Aishwarya’s beauty.-An end credit song celebrating their victory over the villain.
