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!

He actually made it work unlike Bale the fail

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.

A Super Hero who keeps his words and save Gotham

Always will be the best actor.

3 Wolverine (Hugh Jackman)

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

He definitely deserves this spot.

Robert Downey is amazing but gotta give it to Hugh

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

6 Thor (Chris Hemsworth)
7 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.

8 Batman (Michael Keaton)

Best actor and batman of his time.

9 Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)
10 Hulk (Edward Norton)

The Contenders

11 Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds)

Straight badass. Born to play this role.

12 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.
13 Superman (Henry Cavill) Superman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. He was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, high school students living in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1933. They sold the character to Detective Comics, the future DC Comics, in 1938. Superman debuted more.
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
