First, for Billy.
Why he should be cast: He's an 11 year old acting prodigy who is mostly unknown since most of his work has been on the stage.
Why he should not get cast: If they want an older Billy, or want someone with more film experience.
Why he should be cast: 14 year old actor with experience in movies and TV.
Why he should not get cast: They may want a younger Billy.
Why he should be cast: 14 year old actor with TV and film credits.
Why he should not get cast: Again, at 14, might be too old.
Ty SimpkinsWhy he should be cast: Good resume.
Why he should not get cast: He was in "Iron Man 3"... he might still be tied to Disney and unavailable.
Why she should be cast: Looks just like the character.
Why she should not get cast: She's 18, even though her range can be as young as 14. Has a Disney Channel contract which may make her unavailable.
Why she should be cast: 14 year old actress, who also had a Disney contract, but her show was cancelled, freeing her up.
Why she should not get cast: Acting skills may not be up to the same level as the other kids considered.
Why she should be cast: She already is a Batson. No ties to Disney.
Why she should not get cast: Too blonde for Mary. At age 10, might be too young if they go with an older actor for Billy.
Morgan LilyWhy she should be cast: Actress with a good resume and a fashion model.
Why she should not get cast: Age 14, might be too old if they want a younger Billy. Appeared in an X-Men movie, so might have ties to Disney and be unavailable.
And for Freddy. My thoughts are since he influenced Elvis Presley, the actor playing Freddy should resemble Elvis. I think that's what the casting director should look for when casting Freddy. A tough job.
|Elvis as a pre-teen. Ideally, this is what the actor to be cast as Freddy Freeman should resemble.|
Some more conventional choices would be:
Why he should be cast: Acting credits include the recent Godzilla remake.
Why he should not get cast: At 14 might be too old if they go with a younger Billy and Mary.
Why he should be cast: Has Elvis-like cheekbones.
Why he should not get cast: Is contracted to ABC Family, a Disney subsidiary, and might be unavailable.
Why he should be cast: Has a brooding quality that would fit Freddy well. Has won awards for his work on "The Walking Dead".
Why he should not get cast: At age 15, probably to old for the role.
Conclusion: Like I said this is a tough one. Chances are they will cast Captain Marvel first, then look for an unknown to play Billy who resembles him. Then they will cast Mary and Freddy accordingly. I honestly would not want to be the casting director assigned to the three kids. The rest of the casting is a piece of cake, but these three are the critical ones.
