Agreed on that one.

Travis is such a natural at Cap in that Marvel Pinball game.

Catherine Taber and Vanessa Marshall should have switched roles when it comes to their casting as Crystal and Medusa on Guardians of The Galaxy.

I also STRONGLY feel that Eric Vale should have voiced Allen Schezar and Sonny Straight should have Dryden Fassa in the Funimation redub of The Vision of Escaflowne.

After hearing Erica Lindbeck as Captain Marvel in the Avengers anime, I would have switched her with Grey Griffin in Avengers: Secret Wars.

In Tenchi Muyo GXP! I think Dorothy Fahn (Amane) and Wendee Lee (Kiriko) should've swapped roles. Dorothy should've played the girl-next-door type, and Wendee should have played "Ms. Fanservice"

(Not that this would've made the show better)

I feel Troy Baker should've been Thor, giving more of a Chris Hemsworth vibe, while RCS is Hawkeye, and Travis would be Cap.

I can agree with this.

another one to add.

Kirby Morrow really should've been Trunks instead of Goku.

also Scott McNeil and Brian Dobson as Dabura and Evil Buu. Brian's lower registry would fit a demon like Dabura and Scott could've easily done all the forms for Buu like Kozo Shioya did.

I actually would've liked to hear Troy Baker as Iron Man.

He wouldn't sound anything like RJD, but that would actually be pretty refreshing and interesting compared to Adrian Pasdar and Mick Wingert.

Probably be a lot like Matthew Mercer as Shellhead.

Been thinking about one this as of late.

Sean Schemmel and Marc Thompson as Archie and Maxie. Sean's naturally lighter voice, something akin to his Vellian Crowler could've fit Maxie perfectly while Marc's Toraichi Tamiya or a variation of his Megatron voice could've maybe worked as Archie?

Vanessa Marshall and Cree Summer's roles should've been switched for Gamora and Nebula

Post Re: Voice actors in a certain media that should've switched roles?

This might not be related to this but honestly, I do feel in my unpopular opinion that some of the castings in the English dub version of the 2011 Hunter x Hunter series felt off and should've switched roles, on top of that withholding certain actors until they play a certain character (e.g. Patrick Seitz, Cherami Leigh, Max Mittelman, Kyle McCarley, Ben Diskin, etc..) was imao the dub's biggest detriment.

Matt Mercer was good as Leorio but from out of the main 4 (Gon, Killua, Kurapika, Leorio) he was the one I was divisive on (but he grew with me as the series progressed) and I think they should've saved him for either Wing, Ging or Kite tbh, while Kyle Hebert or some other actor be Leorio.

Patrick Seitz does a fine job voicing Uvo, my problem with his casting was that he was TOO recognizable and Deja vu like I was hearing Ira Gamagori again cause, and these days he tends to be cast as the big guys that like to "scream very loud". Personally, I think they should've cast Patrick as Dalzollene given that he has shared a couple of roles from Takehito Koyasu (Dio in JoJo, Luke Valentine in Hellsing) and have Jamieson Price for Uvo.

Speaking of Dalzollene, I honestly think they should've had Kirk Thornton had him cast earlier in the series as one of the incidental characters or have him be the voice of Peggy in the Chimera Ant arc instead of Dalzollene, and as I said before, I think they should've given the role to Patrick Seitz or Kaiji Tang.

As for Morel and Shoot frankly, I think the roles should've been switched. I wasn't impressed with Kyle's performance as Morel and he was trying to hard to sound like a gruff character and personally, it didn't work all that well. I think D.C. Douglas (using his Albert Wesker voice) or Richard Epcar would've been a better casting choice for Morel instead of him.

Finally, In the Japanese version of the Kingdom Hearts games, I think imao they should've given the role of Marluxia to either Takehito Koyasu or Yuji Ueda instead of Shūichi Ikeda. Cause to be honest he sounded like an old man voicing a very young character which made me prefer the English version's voice of Marluxia more than the Japanese voice actor. I also feel it would be unnatural if he were to voice his original self, Lauriam if they remake Union X.
