Marvel Is Seeking A Butt Double For One Of The Avengers


I guess not everyone can be built like J-Lo.  It appears that Marvel Studios is hiring an unexpected sort of double for one of its Avengers.  While obviously, Chris Evans and company employ stunt doubles for some of their riskier acts of daring, a new posting from Central Casting, based out of Georgia, is looking for a “Body/Butt Double” for a Marvel project.  The description reads, “Looking for a female who appears to be Caucasian, 20’s-30’s. Height 5’2 – 5’4, Bust 32B – 32D, waist 25 – 27, hips 36 – 38, dress size 0-4. Hair color: BLONDE.”  It goes on to state that applicants must submit a “full body shot of your backside (wearing ALL BLACK, leggings or yoga pants- must be form fitting).

Here is the cast listing if you want to check it out:

Though not listed in this posting, the film that they are hiring for is ‘Mary Lou’, which was the working title of ‘Avengers 4’.

‘Avengers 4’ has wrapped, however t,here could be some last minute reshoots needed.  There are still several months before it, or its direct predecessor ‘Captain Marvel’, comes out after all.  The description really narrows things down though.  The fact that the person they are seeking is a blonde, Caucasian woman, wearing all-black leggings could point toward Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow, who inexplicably went blonde in ‘Infinity War’, but in concept art for ‘Avengers 4’ it looks as though she went back to darker hair for that movie.

Plus… well from this image as well as the one at the top of the page, it doesn’t look as though she needs a double.  She has worn a snug black bodysuit in six movies and to the best of our knowledge has never needed a stunt booty.

*Sigh* butt but there is a more likely explanation and it starts with this side-by-side comparison shot that launched a thousand memes.  In it, we see Tom Holland in his tighter-than-average Spider-Man suit on one side, compared to Brie Larson dressed as Captain Marvel from her movie and… well, she’s no Scarlett Johansson.  (Or Tom Holland for that matter.)

If I had to put money on it, I’d say that someone at Marvel decided that Larson just wasn’t Marvel-ous enough in one area, so for some close-up shots, they wanted someone who could… um stand in for her.

Well, we’ll see when ‘Captain Marvel’ arrives on March 8, 2019, followed by ‘Avengers 4’ on May 3, 2019.

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
