By far, this 'Attack The Block' star is the most interesting and appealing possibility for the character, and while he's still young, he would be a good fit with the cast that Marvel has already assembled for 'The Avengers' in the first film. Aside from a fanbase that fell in love with him as Moses in 'Block,' he also brings a suitably serious demeanor to the role, and a great Clint Eastwood squint that communicates more than many people could accomplish with a full monologue. He's starting to get attention from other filmmakers, so Marvel should move fast if they want to lock him up for a long-term contract. Right now, he's hard at work on 'Half of a Yellow Sun,' which is shooting in Africa, so hopefully he's soaking up some culture because he's going to need it when Marvel asks him to suit up.
