“There was an idea, The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if they could become something more. To see if they could work together when we needed them to. To fight the battles that we never could.”―Nick Fury
The Avengers were a group of superheroes assembled by Nick Fury and his intelligence organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. through the Avengers Initiative, initially, Nick Fury planned it to be known as the Defenders Initiative.
The original team comprised Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.
They were united by S.H.I.E.L.D. to battle Loki, Thor’s brother.
The team was actually made by Nick Fury to “face the conflicts that S.H.I.E.L.D. never could.”
This is the story we all know about the Earth’s Mightiest heroes. But what if the Avengers were made in the ’90s?
It’s a question as old as time itself or, if nothing else, as old as the ’90s.
It’s consistently enjoyable to speculatively cast the most well-known actors of the decade and endeavor to accommodate their character and on-screen presence to a particular character.
Seems legit, doesn’t it.
Like for instance, who may have played Iron Man (thinking about Robert Downey Jr. was as yet an enthusiastic socialite)?
What might occur if the MCU began 20 years prior? There are many actors as well as actresses who nearly made it into Marvel films, and a few of them might have driven their own franchises at the height of their ’90s popularity. So let’s hop on to the list and find out…

19. Denzel Washington – Black Panther:
18. Keanu Reeves – Doctor Strange:

So yes, these are the Actors Who Would Have Played The Avengers If It Was Made In The 90’s.
Well, I goosebumps while seeing the 90’s actors and actresses fitting perfectly for the roles.
If MCU had been established in the 90s, these starts would have made a great team.
