What If The Avengers Was Cast in the 60’s?

The Avengers is going to be release in the U.S. this Friday, May 4th and as you could read in my review, it’s a lotta fun. But imagine if we could time travel to the 60’s and cast the actors that were in activity when The Avengers, the comic book, was first released. Sure, Black Widow wouldn’t be in it, since she’s not a founding member, but I wanted to play with the idea of taking actors from then and casting in the framework of Joss Whedon’s movie. In the movie we have Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr., Captain America played by Chris Evans, Thor play by Chris Hemsworth, The Hulk played by Mark Ruffalo, Black Widow played by Scarlett Johansson, Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner, Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson and Loki played by Tom Hiddleston. This would be the main cast, wouldn’t you agree?

So this is the result of this game of switch and match.
 Iron Man played by Steve McQueen
Captain America played by Robert Redford
Thor played by Sean Connery
The Hulk played by Paul Newman
Hawkeye played by Clint Eastwood
Nick Fury played by Charlton Heston
Black Widow played by Raquel Welch
Loki played by Christopher Lee
Now it’s your turn. How would you cast The Avengers if the movie was made in the 60’s?
