Breaking down the actors on board to audition to join the new Marvel franchise
Best Known For: TV's 'Gossip Girl'
Going For Him: He's tall; he's well-known but relatively unproven, which could be the right combo for Marvel to bite; played football and could handle the physical side.
Going Against Him: 'Gossip Girl,' frankly. And the upcoming 'Footloose' remake. They're grooming this kid for stardom, but not this kind of stardom.
Chances: If Marvel and the studio pay attention to reactions today (and of course they are... why else would they leak a whole list?), then today's signals were loud and clear; no one wants to see this version of the film.
