Spider-Man

Wolverine

The X-Men

Thor

Iron-Man

The Incredible Hulk

etc.

Just to clarify: Portrayed closest to their comic book counterpart

I'd say Ironman was the closest to his comic personality, the actor was absolutely perfect for the role and Thor was awesome 

#3 Posted by PrinceIMC (5421 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah I'd say Iron Man. And Robert Downey Jr. playing him was pitch perfect casting.

its a 50/50 split iron man or Thor Hemsworth does an epic job as Thor and Downey Jnr preety much nails Stark as well.

That's what I got from that. I think Tobey made Peter Parker his own, whereas watching Iron Man was just watching RDJ be RDJ.

Then it's Thor without a doubt.

Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. actually read comics to get the role unlike most other actors.

Beast

#18 Posted by Aronmorales (9434 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Man, follwoed by Hulk, and I haven't seen Thor but I'mma say he goes in third.

#19 Posted by Omega Ray Jay (7595 posts) - - Show Bio

 Robert Downey Jr. as Stark is without a shadow of a doubt the greatest casting in a Marvel film in my opinion. 

#20 Posted by Kahaha (81 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Man....the others were all awful.

#21 Posted by FortressoftheMoon (678 posts) - - Show Bio


He put the X-men and Spiderman......LOL. 

 

Oh yeah Storm was really on spot with her los angeles accent.

 

And Peter Parker who is a mathmetician and physicist but he doesn't know how to screw on a front wheel on a ten speed........lol.

 

 

So far it's Blade, Stark, X1 Sabretooth, Professor X, Batman (Keaton and Bale), Joker (Nicholson), Commisoner Gordon(Oldman), Alfred(Both), Catwoman(Phieffer), Everyone in Watchmen, J.Jonah Jamerson, Aunt may, Doc Ock, Matt Murdock Only, Beast, Hellboy, Ape Sapien,

I want to say Ironman based off what I've heard, but I've never read Iron Man before so I'll go with Hulk.

#23 Posted by texasdeathmatch (13171 posts) - - Show Bio

Blade.

#24 Posted by DH69 (4258 posts) - - Show Bio

Best: Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark

Worst: Tobey Mcguire (Peter Parker) or Rebecca Romijn (Mystique)

Lol. Thor just came out and I know you couldn't have already seen it, so you can't say that. Hugh Jackman and Ed Norton also did excellant as their characters, My only problem with Hugh is that he's way too tall, which really doesn't even matter.

This is for marvel movies and I know JK Simmons did a great job as his version of J.J., but he's not really like the comicbook version at all, and if you ask me Ben Affleck was an okay Daredevil but that's as good as he gets.

What was so bad about him ( that he was actually in control of  I mean)?

Ironman
Blade

#29 Posted by Iron_Turtle (579 posts) - - Show Bio

Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark is Robert Downey Jr.

Even though the movies were horrendous, Michael Chiklis is the perfect Ben Grimm.
Ryan Reynolds turn as Wade WIlson was also spot on. Screw the rest of that movie though.

@DH69:  Lol, but I said something he's in control of, like his acting .

Chiklis, really? I didn't think he was all that good, plus he was way too short, but that doesn't really have anything to do with his acting.

Robert Downey Jr as iron Man was the best so far..


Toby Maguire as Spider-man is also believable..

Cris Evans a Human Torch was also great..


#33 Posted by Lex Diamonds (170 posts) - - Show Bio

Blade and Wade Wilson

#34 Posted by bgibs13390 (826 posts) - - Show Bio

Prof X and Magneto were really good. Iron Man was great and Thor was too. 

#35 Posted by The_Warlord (1777 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Man, but i'd like to see the movie delve into his alcoholism more.

#36 Posted by JediXMan (29679 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Man (Iron Man)
Magneto (X-Men)
Professor X (X-Men)
Hulk (Incredible Hulk)
Caretaker (Ghost Rider... considering the Caretaker was modeled after Sam Elliott, you really can't go wrong)
Nick Fury (Iron Man. Again, modeled after Samuel L. Jackson)

@The Dark Huntress:  he's not like the comic version at all, so no.
#43 Posted by PrinceIMC (5421 posts) - - Show Bio

Blade seriously? I thought this thread was about accuracy. They have since changed Blade in the comics to be more like the movie but it didn't start out that way.

J. Jonah Jameson was probably the best portrayal of a character. I didn't think of him. He deserves his own movie.

#44 Posted by Metro_Man (584 posts) - - Show Bio

I have not seen Thor, yet. I am waiting untill the 9th because it is my friends Birthday.  So for now, I will say Iron Man.
#45 Posted by cascadeking09 (6752 posts) - - Show Bio
@PrinceIMC:  I don't understand how you can question Blade and throw in JJ. He's not like that at all, the movie version was way more silly and over the top. J.K. put his own unique twist to the character which turned out great, but he's not like that in the comicbooks.
#46 Posted by UltraHeroix (154 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say Robert Downey Jr. as Ironman.

#47 Posted by Achilles. (3847 posts) - - Show Bio

1st is Thor 

2nd is Iron Man
Third is Loki
#48 Posted by Shadow_Thief (2509 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd have to say the Hulk; they definitely got the roaring and the smashing down perfectly. Now, if you want to talk about the portrayal of Banner, that's a different story. ;)
