He gave one of his best performances ever in Avengers EndGame - Sa26


Just so good

He should be number 1. He is so talented and funny, has an amazing personality, and to top it all off, he's thought of his own amazing lines in many different scenes. - thepanfairy

2 Tom Hiddleston Tom Hiddleston Thomas William Hiddleston is an English actor. He is best known for his role as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World.

Tom Hiddleston on no. 1.He is definitely destined to be there. #proud to be a Hiddlestoner. Go Loki!

Tom is amazing in acting. He was amazing at playing Loki. Not surprised to see him at #1 - Bby_Belike

Tom Hiddleston is absolutely such an amazing actor! It is such an honor to be able to watch the movies he acts in and I always get so excited whenever he appears onscreen. Tom Hiddleston is my favorite actor of all time. It truly hurts my heart when I hear people say rude things about him like that he’s a bad actor or that Loki sucks or that Thor is better. Thor is a cool character and Chris Hemsworth is a wonderful actor. However there will never be a character as amazing as Loki Laufeyson. And never in a millennia can we hope to find an actor nearly as amazing as Tom Hiddleston. Long live Loki, the TRUE king of Asgard.

T Hiddy is the best! He's a great actor, can do multiple different genres, and he can sing!

3 Chris Hemsworth Chris Hemsworth Chris Hemsworth is an Australian actor. He is best known for his roles as Kim Hyde in the Australian TV series Home and Away and as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films Thor, The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Age of Ultron Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. more.


Chris Hemsworth is THE BEST!

This is good actor

He's great actor

4 Chris Evans Chris Evans Christopher Robert Evans is an American actor. Evans is best known for his superhero roles as the Marvel Comics characters Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Human Torch in Fantastic Four.

He is the best he played captain America and Blue away every body and he is a great acter and the best avenger


Are you serious? 8th? This guy played TWO marvel heroes! With two completely different personalities! And some people want him as deadpool! Laugh out loud

Chris is the cutest guy in the Avengers team

5 Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North. more.

Probably the coolest female superhero of all time and my role model... BLACK WIDOW! Black Widow is the glue of the team and was the 1st female marvel character come to life on the big screen. Even though she may be gone according to End Game, she will always be with us in here. (just imagine I'm pointing at your heart. by here I mean, in our hearts. just so you know.)

Scarlet is the best, most bad*** Black Widow we have on this planet. She deserves to be in the big three, for sure.

Her! Yeah!

6 Mark Ruffalo Mark Ruffalo Mark Alan Ruffalo is an American actor, producer, and political activist who made his screen debut in an episode of CBS Summer Playhouse, followed by minor film roles.

He should have been at least number 3 and higher than evans

Love ya Mark - Bby_Belike

7 Samuel Jackson Samuel Jackson Samuel Leroy Jackson is an American actor and film producer. He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Jungle Fever, Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance, Jurassic Park and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction, Jackie more.

He is THE Nick Fury. They redesigned him as black, and based his appearance of of Samuel Jackson. That ALONE is cool enough to get him in the top 5. He is older, but he can fight the villains just as well as the Avengers. He created and assembled the Avengers Initative. How much more evidence do I need? Come on people! Vote for Samuel. He should be higher than Chris Hemsworth (people probably voted for him thanks to looks)

8 Chris Pratt Chris Pratt Christopher Michael "Chris" Pratt is an American actor. He came to prominence from his television roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood and Andy Dwyer in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation.

I loved this guy
He's my favourite
I loved his all movie and I love star lord and he made his character a legendary phenomenon

Chris Pratt is the best, in my opinion. He turned a nobody hero (Star-who? ) that only major comic geeks knew about into a hero almost funnier and more awesome than RDJ's Iron Man. He portrayed Star-Lord perfectly, start to finish. I have read many reviews, and not one included a complaint about him. Early 2014, if somebody had asked about Star-Lord, pretty much nobody would have known. Now, late 2015, everybody knows and loves Star-Lord, leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy. GET HIM TO NUMBER ONE! Or at least 3.

9 Tom Holland Tom Holland Thomas Stanley "Tom" Holland is an English actor and dancer. Holland is known for playing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the title role in Billy Elliot the Musical at the Victoria Palace Theatre, London, and for starring in the 2012 film The Impossible.

I just realized that he, the <3 of my life's middle name, is Stanley, or Stan. That makes me realize that he's PERFECT for Spider-Man and he makes me miss Stan Lee!

my love

He is the beast actor in the hole world

Excuse me he’s just a SMOL BEAN
