Ever wondered what the Avengers would have looked like if women played most starring roles? We all know that Scarlett Johansson owned the role of the dangerous beauty Black Widow, but when it comes to the other Avengers, could they have been played just as well if acted by women?

Now, hold on, this isn’t a feminism post. I’m not complaining about how there’s only one female Avenger, when they had the opportunity to bring in so many more. I’m going to keep those comments to myself, save them for another time, don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted. What this article is actually about, is dreaming up the ‘what could have beens’ and ‘what ifs’.
What if Amber Heard played the majestic Thora, instead of Chris Hemsworth? What if Sandra Bullock played the Queen of her Domain Iron Maiden, instead of Robert Downey Jr. What if Rachel Weisz played the hazardous Lady Hulk, instead of… uh… well, if we’re talking about the Avengers, then Mark Ruffalo. The possibilities are endless; the opportunities are there, film developers just have to take them.
