In recent years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney have long ago made the choice to avoid the well-known actors to embody the super-hero. Without insult, we can say that the career of Robert Downey Kr, Chris Evans or Chris Hemsworth has seen an explosion thanks to Marvel and not the other way around.

The failure of the series could have given the reason… Anecdote quite funny, the character of Black Bolt can’t speak, as his voice is a weapon. What we will offer yet another very special role after several films to repeat ” Groot “…
