I'd really like to do a retro cast of some kind. MCU, Fury Road, or the 50's Blade Runner suggested a while back could be fun.




- Dent6084 - 10-18-2017

I think if we do something between now and Christmas, retro casting draft of some kind would be my top choice.




- hammerhead - 10-18-2017

If folks are actually interested in doing this idea, I further suggest refining it to the dates of the Marvel characters' introduction-- Hulk and Spidey in 1962, Iron Man in 1963, and so forth. Would characters currently not included in the real MCU be viable? FF, X-Men, etc?




- Dent6084 - 10-19-2017

I would say MCU-only characters, otherwise it gets way too unwieldy. Though a 70s or 80s X-Men would be pretty great for a retro draft.

I was thinking of doing some kind of knockout related to the Presidents, either a top 50 of fictional ones throughout film and tv or we rank all 44.

We did a fictional presidents knockout last year. Ranking US presidents could be fun.


- Dent6084 - 10-19-2017

Yeah, that sounds fun.




- Judas Booth - 10-19-2017

I still like the idea of trying a retro draft.  I remember that we were talking about doing a 1950s BLADE RUNNER draft at one point and I latched onto Victor Mature as my Rick Deckard.




- hammerhead - 10-19-2017

60s Robert Shaw would be a perfect Roy.




- boone daniels - 10-19-2017

Richard Widmark as 50s JF Sebastian.

​ Would this mean 1941, or 1965 for Captain America?




- hammerhead - 10-19-2017

Go with 1965 for the proper Marvel era. But there actually was a Captain America serial in 1944, so that's canon.

Elisha Cook Jr, fool.

Yeah, Sebastion is a nerd-ish loner. Vintage Widmark had too much of a strong personality. You wouldn't believe a shy naiveté in first meeting with Pris.



My geek out choices: Lancaster Deckard/ Kirk D. Batty

Directed by John Frankenheimer.




- atomtastic - 10-19-2017

Mitchum is the obvious Deckard, well besides Bogart, but he's more of a 40s' Deckard.  With Bacall as Rachel, of course.



Yul Brynner with hair as Batty?




- hammerhead - 10-19-2017

Steve McQueen as 60s Deckard.




- huntertarantino - 10-19-2017

ATor Johnson as Batty.


- JMurdoch - 10-19-2017

A[quote name="HunterTarantino" url="/community/t/147438/ideas-for-future-drafts/1020#post_4386992"]Tor Johnson as Batty.[/quote]

Why would you design a replicant to look like Tor Johnson?

Brute force.



He wears a wig to play Leon. Or he does that for Batty and plays Leon bald.




- Judas Booth - 10-19-2017

ATor would be Pris, a pleasure model. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
And Bela Lugosi would be Tyrell.


- huntertarantino - 10-19-2017

ABela is obviously Tyrell.


- atomtastic - 10-19-2017

Vampira is Pris.




- Judas Booth - 10-19-2017

Bunny Breckenridge? He's totally Leon.



'Let me tell you about my mother.'




- Dent6084 - 10-20-2017

Man, now I kinda wanna say we should do the '50s Blade Runner once this knockout is done, but all the best ideas are already taken!




- Richard Dickson - 10-20-2017

Peter Lorre is 1940s Gaff.




- Dent6084 - 11-04-2017

Insane idea because there's too many characters: LOTR draft. If Amazon's dumb enough to do it, we can do it too!



Or we do a '70s LOTR draft based on the Boorman script.




- bailey - 11-05-2017

Wouldn't it be more interesting to do it now?  I mean, it'll be easier to fill all the roles, for one thing.  For another we can try to anticipate who they'll cast.  Seems like a weird place to do our first period casting draft.




- huntertarantino - 11-05-2017

Doing LOTR seems redundant to me. It's almost as if Amazon announced one of our ideas.




- boone daniels - 11-05-2017

I know it's post-Halloween, but was also thinking SCREAM could be fun.




- bailey - 11-05-2017

I literally don't even remember any of the characters in Scream other than David Arquette played some goofy deputy or some shit.




- turingmachine75 - 11-10-2017

AWhatever we do, everyone should get a free (hic) Christopher Plummer . . . like an upcard. Or has to use him as permanent second choice . . . too many Plummers and you're (hic) out.


- hammerhead - 11-11-2017

Have a Criminal Draft. You can only Plummer one of them.




- atomtastic - 11-11-2017

Robert Blake - Spider-Man
