Spider-Man: Who Should Play the Famous Character Next
2. Keith Stanfield
Another bit player who deserves a leading role. He’d be coming in with very little spotlight and a slight anonymity to the general audience, which, as I said above helps with Marvel films that have made an art form of perfect casting (aside from Doctor Strange but hey, we couldn’t always win). Stanfield was phenomenal and heartbreaking in Short Term 12 and Selma and he could channel that aggression and heartbreak into a more lighthearted role while still getting to kick some butt.
