There have been a lot of casting miscues over the years when it comes to sci-fi flicks, but what if those decisions had gone a little differently?

As fans, we love to follow the casting rumors to find out who will (and won’t) star in our favorite franchises. Heck, you don’t have to look much further than all the Star Wars buzz to see that sci-fi fans really, really like to have a hand in who brings their favorite characters to life.

But for every Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man, there are a boatload of miscues that have doomed seemingly cool projects to pure awfulness (or in the best of cases, just mediocrity). 

So take a step into the alternate universe and see who could’ve starred in some of these famous (and infamous) sci-fi flicks.
