Would you be happy if Michael Phelps will take Namor's role?

Michael Phelps is the most successful Olympian and also the greatest.

He is the King in Swimming

I think he'll make a good Namor.

Who is with me on this?

I'd like to see him become Namor in real life. I don't think he can act though, so not in the movies.

@jhazzroucher: first sentence VERY debatable. so is the second. third: athletes cant act for sh*t. so no.

Maybe he can swim pretty well, but that's where the similarities end.

No did you see him on SNL? He can barely read the cue cards.

He has too sweet of a face.

Namor is all about elegant power, nothing about Phelps is like that.

He can't act and he lacks the look.

Your suggestions for actors to play X-Men are pretty poor.

I'd rather see a "Great" actor play Namor who in real life cant swim a lick then the other way around. Jus sayin.

Phelps ranges from decent, to endearingly awkward, to super awkward on camera. He doesn't have the ability to play somebody with Namor's inherent charisma.

That's not even taking into account the fact that he lacks acting ability or that he doesn't look anything like Namor.

the first sentence really isn't all that debatable since he's won more Olympic medals than anyone and that's including all of the other sports...if you look at just the gold medals he's got twice as many as the person below him

The dude has more overall medals and more gold medals than anyone in the history of the games. His is absolutely the most successful Olympian. I agree it's not totally objective of someone to say he's the greatest Olympian of all time given how many triumphant stories the games have spawned, but 9 times out of ten when they argue that point they're doing it to be contrarian as opposed to being open minded. The first sentence isn't debatable at all, and the second sentence is only somewhat debatable.

As for the acting Phelps would be a terrible Namor.

You should be banned for making threads that even a 3 year old would find ridiculous.

Just because he swims really fast doesn't mean he can play Namor. He's a retired swimmer, not an actor. He has no acting ability whatsoever. Even when you're not making a Storm thread, your posts are just getting ridiculous now.

One stupid thread in a while is all well and good but the OP makes stupid threads all the time. Usually involving Storm to some degree. Have you seen jhazzroucher's threads? And my post wasn't as harsh as
