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.

Words can't describe...

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

He Was Hilarious In This

9 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.
