With the success of Infinity War still riding high, it must be pretty good to be one of the Avengers crew right now. Just imagine how smug you could be if you were Robert Downey Jr – or any of them, for that matter.
With starring roles from the likes of Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland (and so on), the line-up is like a who’s who of the most popular Hollywood actors right now – but what if the film had been cast at a different time? Who would have been roped in?
One artist, House of Mat, has done the thinking for us on that one, having re-imagined the Avengers team in the 1990s, complete with a suitably retro cast.
The work – which was shared on Instagram – is absolutely incredible, and is so convincing that we’re almost struggling to remember what the original cast look like.
Of course Leonardo DiCaprio would be Captain America – the all-American dreamboat type that Leo became synonymous with after his Titanic days.
