Which marvel character has been best portrayed in film?

#1 Posted by Barnes (26 posts) - - Show Bio

In my opinion, Magneto by Ian McKellen. What do you think?

#2 Posted by royale_with_cheese (747 posts) - - Show Bio

Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier. His voice is calm and soothing, as Xavier's should be.

Kelsey Grammer as Beast.

Depends on what you mean best portrayed. Do you mean consistent with the comics, well acted, well written, most entertaining, etc.?

I would certainly say that Tony Stark is on the top of the list but I really loved Kevin Bacon's Sebastian Shaw, he's just so charmingly evil.

Iron Man

Right off the top of my head, Hellboy.

Hemsworth as Thor.

consistent with comics.

I'd have to go with Tony Stark and Steve Rodgers. I particularly liked the line in Captain America where Professor Ersikan asked Steve if he wants to kill Nazis and Steve's response was I don't want to kill anyone.

Captain America-

-"I don't wanna kill anyone. I just don't like bullies. Doesn't matter where they're from."
-"You know, the last time I was in Germany and saw a man standing above everybody else, we ended up disagreeing."
-"Put on the suit, let's go a few rounds."
-"Ma'am, there's only one God, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that."
-"What? You getting Sleepy?"
-"Alright, listen up! Until we can close that portal up there, what we need is containment. Barton: I want you on that roof, eyes on everything. Call out patterns and strays. Stark: you've got the perimeter. Anything gets more than three blocks out, you turn it back or you turn it to ash. Thor: you've gotta try and bottleneck that portal, slow them down. You've got the lightning - light the bastards up! You and me: we stay here on the ground, keep the fighting here. And Hulk? Smash."

Yeah, he's been portrayed the best so far, IMO.

I would have to agree. The guy they chose for the part really looked like a duck.

Believe it or not, Bruce Banner was amazingly well portrayed in the Avengers to such a high degree that I put him at the top.

hulk , iron man , capt. america, and black widow

Edward and mark as Bruce banner

Iron Man. RDJ pretty much is Stark, so he pulls the role off damn near flawlessly.

#19 Edited by Kinasin_ (1200 posts) - - Show Bio

Michael Jai White as Spawn or better yet john leguizamo as Clown.

All the Avengers, Samuel L. Jackson as Fury, and Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill included, and I know it's a "comic sin" but I liked Michael Clarke Duncan as The Kingpin in Daredevil, he was the only good thing about the movie in my opinion, but I'm also a fan of his so it may be a little biased. Ron Perlman as Hellboy, Keaton and Bale as Batman. But the Avengers cast was the best, IMO.

#21 Posted by DeadpoolPT (23 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Man - Robert Downey Jnr

Captain America - Chris Evans

Patrick Stewart - Charles Xavier

Thor - Hemsworth

In that order.

all the avenger and magneto. during x-men first class i was really on the magneto's side.

Iron Man, Magneto. Black Widow too, the interpretation was very reminiscent of Natasha.

#24 Edited by John Valentine (16310 posts) - - Show Bio

Downey Jnr. as Iron Man. This is how I'd imagine Tony to be like.

I agree with this!

Iron Man while well portrayed was a lot closer to the Ultimate universe than his 616 counterpart.

There are some genius casting choices in Marvel Movies.

Michael Fassbender as Young Magneto is brutal.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is amazing no one can argue.

Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man is perfect

and ( you guys might hate me)

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool is a fantastic choice i know that movie sucked but he was great in the first ten minutes. I think Ryan Reynolds would be amazing as Deadpool in the hopeful Deadpool movie that is coming out.

I believe Marvel got the Avengers cast 100% correct and Ryan Reynolds would be an awesome Deadpool
