"Robert Downey Jr is reportedly using his substantial power behind the scenes at Marvel to get his buddies Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster cast alongside him in future 'Avengers' films. Radar Online cite a source saying "He wants to bring Mel and Jodie into the Marvel universe. It's been a long-time dream of Robert's to help Mel and Jodie reach similar big box office heights like the ones he's achieved in recent years."
Right now Downey Jr is contracted to make two more 'Avengers' movies - including 2015's 'Age of Ultron' and - according to the source - consult on future additions to the 'Iron Man' franchise.
The report notes that while Foster would be a welcome addition the past behaviour of Gibson in the public eye would be a huge problem for Marvel and their owners Disney to overcome.
Of course Robert Downey Jr courted controversy himself in the past, but redemption for Gibson - at least in this form - seems incredibly unlikely.
The source said: "Marvel is run by one of the richest and most prominent Israeli businessmen in Hollywood, and you can be sure even if Robert got down on his knees and begged, there's no place for Mel in the Marvel films."
You'll be able to see Gibson back amongst his fellow action legends in 'The Expendables 3', out in the UK 15 August 2014."
Personally, I feel Mel Gibson would not be a good fit in a superhero movie, but that's just my opinion. What do you all think?

Jet Li was diagnosed with this condition in 2010. An overactive thyroid causes changes in the person’s metabolism and heart rate, but can be controlled with treatment. Doctors advised Li not to exercise with the medication he is taking, but the martial arts legend is maintaining a positive attitude. Here is what Jet Li had to say:
“I’m just a regular guy, I’m not Wong Fei Hung, I’m not Huo Yuan Jia (kung fu heroes he portrays on film), I’m not a hero. I’m just like you. I’m in pain, but I’m not suffering. I’m happy.”
