The transposition of Disney classics into a musical key is nothing new: shows like The Lion King, Aladdin or La Sirenetta have been playing Broadway for years now. Why, then, not to raise the pitch a bit by also involving Marvel in a similar operation?
The actor James Monore Iglehart, already seen in the musical by Aladdin, who asked via Twitter to apply for the role of Thanos in a possible live version of Avengers: Infinity War, attached a photo to the proposal on Twitter. of himself rigged to resemble the Crazy Titan.
The proposal immediately attracted the attention of the fans but also of some experts: Dave Bautista, for example, said he was enthusiastic about the idea but he also made a counter-proposal to Iglehart for the role to be played in the show. According to Bautista, in fact, the actor and singer would be perfect to give a face and voice to his Drax. What do you think, would it be a good choice?
About Avengers: Infinity War, it was recently revealed that the Smart Hulk has seen (and very little appreciated by most of the fandom) in Avengers: Endgame should have been introduced right in the first movie about the clash with Thanos. The writers Markus and McFeely, on the other hand, spoke of a scene included in the script but never shot because it was considered too bloody.
