Mine is Patrick Stewart as Professor X. As soon as I saw him in Star Trek: Next Generation, I said to myself that he would make the perfect Prof X. Not to mention he's also the perfect voice actor for him, too. Did you hear him in the X-Men Legends Series?

Robert Downey Jr.  in Iron Man

He has alot of parallels to Stark (Playboys, living big, crash hard due to substance abuse, rise up again...), and he loves the character.

You are so right!! Some people are just born to play certain characters.

I thought Halle Berry fit the role of Storm quite well, Jackman as Wolverine (although Jackman's a bit too tall, but fit the character's personality well), Christopher Reeve as Superman, Ioan Gruffudd as Mr Fantastic, Downey Jr as Stark, McKellent as Magneto. There were a few people who were well-cast for their roles, I think.

Arron Eckhart as Two face really played the role well

You guys really think Christian Bale was a good Batman? Better than Michael Keaton? His Batman voice made me want to throw up and it seemed to get worse in the Dark Knight.

Yes... He brought something new to the character.... If I wanted to see a direct translation, I'd just read the book. I want my films to be based on the comics and the characters and bring something new to the table, Bale did that.

P.S. The voice is only REALLY bad in Dark Knight, it's fine in Begins

I saw it and it was good, I liked it a lot. But the voice just killed it for me as him being the best Batman.

Huh, I'm like the total opposite, I thought the other movies were okay, but Batman Begins and Dark Knight were the best to me (I like more realistic movies)

@Nobody: So many good ones have been mentioned but I am going to mention it again because William Dafoe ruled as Osborn. I still want him to yell "There was a fire fight!" in Dark Avengers.

i KNOW that it's not a movie but the best actor i have seen for a superhero is tom welling as superman/boy in smallville he beats reeves (may he RIP) in my honest opinion.

#38 Posted by ColossusX (11 posts) - - Show Bio

ian mckellen as magento was awsome! i thought famke jansen as jean/phoenix was really well done as well. halle berry was good, but she was created weird for x3...i kinda didnt like her there. daniel cudmore seemed he can handle colossus, but he needs more lines and more involvment. hugh jackman was rele good as wolverine, but he didnt seem AS animalistic as some comics. sen. kelly was good, and so was rebecca romjin as mystique.

I put J K Simmons at number 1 as well.  Make no mistake, Patrick Stewart, Robert Downey Jr, and Kelsey Grammar were all well cast and did great jobs in their roles.  But many casting choices are very on-the-nose.  Stewart has even mentioned in interviews that several fans have told him that he was born for the role.  That's not good casting, that's just plain old destiny.

Simmons, though, was out of nowhere.  Dr Skoda, his character from OZ, even the yellow M&M, none of these roles or his appearances in them suggested that he was right for JJJ.  Skoda is even bald, fer cryin out loud.  But there he was in Spiderman, making the role more his own than anyone else in the movie.
