I saw these photos floating around the internet:

Jennifer Lawrence as Thor and Rooney Mara as Loki. Thought we could take a stab at recasting superheroes with actresses.

I'll throw out Helen Mirren as Odin. Doesn't have to be just Thor, choose any comic book character/superhero that seems like it would be a good match for a particular actress.

Jennifer Connelly (10 or 15 years ago) as Batman.

Jennifer Connelly 10 or 15 years ago would have been my ultimate Catwoman.

Careful. You keep insulting the Thing like that and it'll be clobberin' time!

Actually, Melissa Mcarthy would play a decent Thing.

How? The Thing is stocky and muscular, not morbidly obese.

Its not so much a fat joke as it is that The Thing is just considered to be hideously ugly. At least that's what I meant by Rosie playing The Thing. I'm don't know who Melissa Mccarthy is so I'm not sure what that poster was intending.

Ben has a kind of sarcastic side that she can embody much more than Rosie, who is just bitter and angry.

She is on Mike & Molly and was nominated for Bridesmaids.

I thought that title went to Monica Bellucci?

Bellucci, Connelly, Charisma Carpenter, Christina Hendricks, Morena Baccarin, Rachel Nichols, Eva Green - I don't care who plays Wonder Woman, as long as we get stills of all the aspirants in costume. For, uh, science.

I'm actually interested in which artist drew that comic WW.

I believe Al Rio drew that Wonder Woman illustration.

I want to say Jim Lee, but I'm not sure. I'm a fan of George Perez WW drawings.

Yup, looks like it was Al Rio. Thanks.

Looks like he hasn't actually drawn any WW comics, tho, from what I can tell.

No. Just....no. Especially not Megan Fox. I prefer my Wonder Woman to be sexy and far less manly.

Al Rio died earlier this year.
