Best Superhero Movie Actors


The Top Ten

1 Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr)

Are you kidding? Just because the movies were incredible doesn't mean Christian Bale's acting was. I mean, it was still good, but nothing there was too hard or new or unique.
Robert Downey jr, on the other hand, fits into the role of Tony Stark like a glove. Little things like face twitches, awkward pauses, smart-ass comebacks and sarcastic remarks make him the ultimate portrayal of Iron Man. I don' think any one ever, past, present or future can match up to this

Good actor but not better than Christian Bale.

Robert Downey jr is the best!

Love this actor

2 Batman (Christian Bale)

Easily the best superhero actor even if his voice is harsh, he's been amazing through all 3 movies

Christian Bale is the best batman of our time. He has an epic voice and a strong play. Epic.

The best actor. His action is in peaks in the dark knight trilogy. No one can replace him in the role of batman

Always will be the best actor.

3 Wolverine (Hugh Jackman)

Hugh jackman is really looks like a real life wolverine this character is preety cool no one can act as wolverine accept jackman even batman can be acted by christian bale, keaton etc. This wolverine only suitable for jackman. He gives us the exact comic wolverine action in movies

Should be #1. If we're talking about who plays the character best, its Jackman as Wolverine. No question. - RyanMontero

Hugh Jackman brings out wolverine's true awesomeness

Hugh Jackman over Christian

4 Superman (Christopher Reeve)

The only person who perfectly presented Superman. Lots of these other actors are great, but Reeve really embodied who he was acting as.

Chris sorpases every one on this list hands down he is the best actor ever! '!

5 Spider-Man (Toby Maguire)

He is the best. In the scene Uncle Ben died, Tobey was amazing

He was much better than Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. - WinchesterGirl26

His my childhood hero, he will always be that spider-man, yet his performance may be kind of different to the character in comic series but I don't give a f, I watched him as I grew up, he stopped the train in Spider-man 2, I could not hold my tears even as a child.

His Spider-man and Christian Bale's batman will always be my favorite superhero of all time. - RockRapfan

6 Captain America (Chris Evans) Captain America (Chris Evans) Captain America is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Chris Evans is the best because he plays Captain America AND The Human Torch. Also Captain America is the best superhero.

Chris Evans is a great actor. - Fullwalking2

Mr evans, who's my favourite actor, has also done the voice for casey jones and jenson in the losers if u consider those guys as superheroes

7 Thor (Chris Hemsworth)

Because I like thor

8 Batman (Michael Keaton)

Best actor and batman of his time.

9 Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)
10 Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds)

Straight badass. Born to play this role.

The Newcomers

? Professor X (James McAvoy)

The Contenders

11 Hulk (Edward Norton)
12 Superman (Henry Cavill)

He is too good for superman role

13 Professor X (Patrick Stewert) Professor X (Patrick Stewert) Professor Charles Francis Xavier is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is the founder and leader of the X-Men.
14 Spider-Man (Tom Holland)

He was the best Spider-Man

Omygod he should be way higher and he is fudging awesome in homecoming

15 Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)
16 Blade (Wesley Snipes)
17 Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson)

(Again, I posted this on another list, but whatever, people need to hear it) 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 at least higher than Chris Hemsworth (people probably voted for him thanks to looks)

18 Hellboy (Ron Perlman)
19 Elektra (Jennifer Garner)
20 Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley)

He deserves to be in the top five. The best and exact superhero portrayal after Christian Bale's Batman, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Henry Cavil's Superman.

Jackie earle haley is Rorschach
