3 Chris Evans (Captain America) Chris Evans (Captain America) 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.

Chris Evan is my favorite actor of all time, it even made me love him more when he played captain america. He was very good at acting weak in the first movie, after that. You could see how he puts emotions in his face, and how his body and voice fits the acting perfectly.

He should be on the first people! That guy acted brilliant in the role

Andrew definitely was a good actor, better than toby himself. He was mostly good at the humor!

6 Michael Keaton (Batman) Michael Keaton (Batman)

Everyone hated the idea that Keaton would play Batman originally. But, he turned out to be one of the greatest character portrayals of a comic-book superhero of all time. He just fit the role so well, he was dark, serious, vengeful, but when he was Bruce Wayne he rocked as the casual, rich ass. I salute you, Keaton. You proved all the naysayers wrong!

7 Hugh Jackman (Logan/Wolverine) Hugh Jackman (Logan/Wolverine) Hugh 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 .

The actor was so good, in real life he is a guy who is humorous and fun. In the movie he acted so damn good, he act like the angry temper sassy cool guy I love him!
