Why it Might Happen: Edgerton, 39, has slowly made a name for himself by playing sensitive alpha males with a little bit of brutishness to them. One of these big blockbusters is going to call him up to the big leagues, so it might as well be Marvel. Heís about to break out in a big way: heís got standout roles in Jane Got A Gun and Midnight Special, and is sure to turn some heads as Rhamses in Ridley Scottís Exodus. Edgerton would bring a soulful masculinity to the part, and you could see him blending in with a larger Marvel ensemble.

Why It Might Not: It feels like Hollywood doesnít quite know what to do with Edgerton yet. Turning him into a magical superhero doesnít seem like the best use of his brusque macho appeal. Youíre going to need a forceful cinematic presence to convince the audience to believe in magic, and it doesnít seem clear Edgerton could pull that off.
