1. Danai Gurira as Frenzy
The “Walking Dead” star already has experience acting as a loner who later joins a bigger group. We think she could bring some serious emotional depth to the role with her acting.
2. Rosario Dawson as Cecilia Reyes
She’s no stranger to action and she would clearly do this character’s internal conflict arising from her complex storyline justice.
3. Yaya Alafia as Misty Knight
Yaya is definitely one actress we are dying to see more from. Maybe she’d take on a role like this after her Oscar win?
4. Zoe Saldana as Silhouette
Another actress on this list who has been in several Sci-fi and action blockbusters, Zoe Saldana could definitely meet the physical demands of this role.
5. Rutina Wesley as Threnody
We’d Love to see the “True Blood” actress kick ass as a superhero.
6. Naomie Harris as Timeslip.
The British beauty is clearly comfortable playing a diverse range of character roles.
7. Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Thunder
Her last foray into action was more comedic, but we think the singer could definitely bring this character to life. Maybe Solange could make a cameo as Lightening?
8. Halle Berry as Vixen
Sure, we already know her as Storm, but we think this role would be a better fit.
9. Naomi Campbell as Storm
Speaking of Storm, even though we haven’t seen much from this British catwalker in the way of acting, we think her striking presence alone would add some weight to this most famous hero.
10. Shareeka Epps as Martha Washington
There was a lot of buzz a few years ago about a Martha Washington movie being made with Rosario Dawson taking on the role. We think Shareeka Epps would be a better fit.

I was thinking that maybe they should do something never seen before – like casting Storm with an actress that actually LOOKS authentically African. Since Iman is older now, maybe Rutina Wesley would do! 🙂
