JUST LIKE IN THE COMICS: Actors who were PERFECT in their roles. 

In comic book adaptions its always difficult when you cast someone for the role, because of the strong source material and fan base. Some characters are larger than life and finding an actor can make or break a film. Bad casting can not only take you out of the film, but can also alienate loyal comic book fans.

All comic book fans want is the characters from the pages to spring to life on screen and most importantly the spirit of the character. 


So here we go in no particular order:

The gruff and explosive publisher & editor-in-chief of the Daily Bugle, a fictional New York newspaper and once served as the mayor of New York City.

Robert Downey Jr brings in the man's man pompous charm that Tony Stark is know for as billionaire playboy, business magnate, and ingenious engineer,

  • Patrick Steward as Professor Charles Francis Xavier (also known as Professor X)

Powerful telepath founder and leader of the X-Men. Patrick Steward brings a mixture of warm father figure and teacher to his portrayal of Professor X.

  • Wade Wilson aka Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds)

Do I really have to explain imagine if you shook your copy of the comic Deadpool and the character dropped out that's Ryan Reynolds in this role.

Even though the film doesn't exactly follow the political and social views of the original novel and shows the character as more of a superhero than an anarchist ,Hugo Weaving still captures perfectly the charismatic and skilled freedom fighter V.

The Punisher is a vigilante who employs murder, kidnapping, extortion, coercion, threats of violence, and torture in his war on crime. Driven by the deaths of his wife and two children.Jon Bernthal brings so much weight to the character as a sociopath vigilante.

  • Karl Urban as the cold,unstoppable Judge Dredd, a law enforcer given the power of judge, jury and executioner in Mega-City One

A ruthless crime-fighter, his beliefs in moral absolutismgood and evil with no shades of grey
