Top 10 Superhero Movie Actors Who Perfectly Fit Their Character

This list is compiled of actors who were perfectly casted for a superhero role (not necessarily those who did the best job) who rendered it impossible to imagine the character portrayed by anyone else. Basically, when actor met character perfectly.

The Top TenXW

1Robert Downey Jr.- Tony StarkRobert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.V1 Comment
2Hugh Jackman - WolverineHugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, producer and musician. Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters.
3Andrew Garfield - Peter ParkerAndrew Russell Garfield is a British-American actor. Born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Epsom, Surrey, Garfield began his career on the UK stage and in television productions.

I don't think he was a good Peter Parker. He was a good Spider-Man, but his Peter was too confident, too socially adjusted, too prone to stuttering, and too emotionless for half of his scenes. He was a very unconvincing Peter Parker, in general, and without getting Peter, at his core, right on film, you've not done the character right (no matter how quippy his Spider-Man alter ego is). - BKAllmighty

4Ryan Reynolds - DeadpoolRyan Rodney Reynolds is a Canadian actor and producer. He portrayed Michael Bergen on the ABC sitcom Two Guys and a Girl, Billy Simpson in the YTV Canadian teen soap opera Hillside, as well as Marvel Comics characters Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity, Wade Wilson / Weapon XI in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, more.

I don't think there was ever anyone else for this role. - BKAllmighty

5Heath Ledger - JokerHeathcliff Andrew Ledger was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in Australian television and film during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career.

Heat ledger must be under top 3. If someone wants a reason for this then watch "The Dark Knight"
