Sounds like Marvel has been reading our fantasy casting list. First it there were the Nathan Fillion rumors, and now the shirtless demi-god Josh Holloway is the newest rumored Avengers cast member. But who should he play?
Avenger News was tipped off that Holloway might be popping up in Marvel's giant Avengers film:
We received this interesting tidbit about "LOST" star Josh Holloway over the weekend. Apparently there's been talk between Marvel and his group to play a "lead" role in an upcoming Marvel film. We mention a "lead" role because these bigger actors often won't sign "retainers", meaning everything should be 100% locked (character, film, etc) for Josh once he's signed the dotted line.
While it might be simple for him to be a "wild card" member S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, we think Sawyer is absolutely perfect for Hawkeye — he's already got the arms going for him. What say you? Again these could all just be rumors, but he is hot off the series finale of Lost so it's not a crazy idea.
