Recently we sat down to imagine how the Marvel Avengers movie would be cast if it were made in the 70s. Unfortunately podcasts are not a visual medium, so here are our actor choices along with photos from their imdb pages (wherever possible).
Robert Redford, James Garner, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen
Jack Nicholson, Harrison Ford, Burt Reynolds, Robert Redford
Dustin Hoffman, Richard Dreyfuss, Charles Bronson, Al Pacino
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruno Sammartino, David Proust (in monster makeup)
Ryan O’Neal, Chuck Norris, Clint Eastwood, Lee Majors
Linda Carter, Ali McGraw, Cassandra Peterson, Diana Rigg, Farrah Fawcett, Jane Fonda, Jane Seymour, Jaqueline Bisset, Jodie Foster, Lindsay Wagner, Mary Tyler Moore
Note: This list would likely be much shorter if we were casting for more than one female character.
Max von Sydow, Frank Zane, John Travolta, Rutger Hauer, James Caan
Richard Pryor, John Hurt, Charlton Heston, Peter Falk
