Top 10 Superhero Movie Actors Who Perfectly Fit Their Character

Cpett
This list is compiled of actors who were perfectly casted for a superhero role (not necessarily those who did the best job) who rendered it impossible to imagine the character portrayed by anyone else. Basically, when actor met character perfectly.

The Top Ten

1 Robert Downey Jr.- Tony Stark Robert Downey Jr.- Tony Stark Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.

The only one who could play it

2 Hugh Jackman - Wolverine Hugh Jackman - 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 .
3 Heath Ledger - Joker Heath Ledger - Joker Heath Andrew Ledger was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in Australian television and film during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career.

Heat ledger must be under top 3. If someone wants a reason for this then watch "The Dark Knight"

Joker was a villain.. but whatever, he was good

4 Ryan Reynolds - Deadpool Ryan Reynolds - Deadpool Ryan Rodney Reynolds is a Canadian actor and producer.

I don't think there was ever anyone else for this role. - BKAllmighty

5 Andrew Garfield - Peter Parker Andrew Garfield - Peter Parker Andrew Russell Garfield is a British-American actor. Born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Epsom, Surrey, Garfield began his career on the UK stage and in television productions.

I don't think he was a good Peter Parker. He was a good Spider-Man, but his Peter was too confident, too socially adjusted, too prone to stuttering, and too emotionless for half of his scenes. He was a very unconvincing Peter Parker, in general, and without getting Peter, at his core, right on film, you've not done the character right (no matter how quippy his Spider-Man alter ego is). - BKAllmighty

6 Christian Bale - Bruce Wayne Christian Bale - Bruce Wayne Christian Charles Philip Bale is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.
7 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.

Very underrated

Underrated compared to RDJ and one of the best in the Marvel universe - Lucasw14

8 Chris Hemsworth - Thor Chris Hemsworth - Thor 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 and Thor: Ragnarok.

Oh come on he fits his role perfectly and is the mighty God of Thunder. He is so underrated. He acts better than Ryan Reynolds.
