I agree with you list, very good one.

I agree with this list.

I agree with all of these. I think Karl Urban's performance as Judge Dredd and Dredd 3D as a whole is overlooked way too much. I loved the movie and it's execution as a whole was awesome for people who wanted something different from the cheesy Stallone popcorn flick.

YES, Urban is awesome. Too bad everything he gets involved in doesn't make much money or gets cancelled.

I agree with this list.

Thanks Shadow.

I haven't seen the Dredd movie, but otherwise I totally agree with all of these.

if I were going to suggest any, I did like Hemsworth and Hiddleston, Thor and Loki..

but this is a boss list either way.

so happy to see J.K. Simmon's Jameson on here. Possibly the most faithful and entertaining character reinterpretation of any of these movies.

I agree with the list from 1 to 10. However, I don't think Chris Evans has been that good of a Captain America. If anything I think he had a better performance as Johnny Storm which is funny because I think Evans and Michael Chiklis had better FF performances than the guy who played Reed. I don't think he was bad but his acting wasn't anything worth mentioning in my opinion.

I think the new Zod sucked but I'm not a huge DC fan so I wouldn't know. I obviously agree with number 14 but 15... ah... well... I just don't think it was THAT great either compared to others like he was good but nothing special again but since he is the last one I guess its cool. but chea! just my 2 pennies. (+)

List is great like always!

In my opinion the entire Avengers were cast perfectly especially RDJ and Chris Hemsworth

There are some characters who I can't see performed by anyone else:

Iron Man

Thor

Wolverine

Magneto

Professor X

J Jonah J

Loki

He's in the honorable mentions.

Eh i didn't like Iron Man 2 or him that much.

Thumbs up bru

thanks bro

@yung_ancient_one: hmm I actually agree with you on Chris Evans. I didn't really see him as Cap on the first movie or the Avengers. I thought he did decent job and won me over with that.

:O Where be iith Nick Fury by Samuel Jackson

I actually find him annoying. And the He isn't the real Fury IMO

@oldnightcrawler: I put Thor and Loki in the honorable mentions. Thanks

I think he means in Sin City, and yeah, he really made the movie.

(kind of the only caracter that needed to be good for Millar's dialogue, amiright?)

I'm watching the movie this weekend, bro.

@madeinbangladesh:

How about Storm?

Halle Berry as Storm? A big NO.

@oldnightcrawler:

Oh, fail on my part lol I thought you were talking about Mickey's Ironman 2 role.

I never watched Sin City. Might have to some time.

I agree with this list. the only thing different on my list would be Joker as number one because Heath ledger put his life into portraying The Joker to his best ability ( even though some say it cost him his life) and he is the only actor in a to win an Oscar for a Comic Book Movie (I think).

Love the inclusion of Karl Urban's Dredd on this list. He's so overlooked I even forget about him at times despite loving the hell out of that movie. =P

Yea great underrated actor.

Very good list.

The only other I'd really like to have seen was Thomas Jane as the Punisher.

Thanks for reading,

I didn't like him very much in the movie, but he was awesome in that DirtyLaundry video

I disagree with 2 things on the list.....but, of course, it's not my list so I am sure no one cares, ha ha.

While JK Simmons did a brilliant job as JJ, there is really nothing to compare it too. I mean, overall, the character is just a middle aged man who yells a lot...I am sure there is a lot of actors who are capable of doing that. I am just always puzzled when people say he is impossible to replace as that character. We have never really seen anyone else try it. He was voiced brilliantly in almost every animated incarnation by different actors, just dress those guys like JJ and they would be considered just as good...right??

Also, I am under the impression that a lot of people have never read Iron Man pre-Iron Man movies. Robert Downey Jr. essentially plays a caricature of himself in those films. Tony Stark in the comics is arrogant, sure, and a bit of a douche, but he was always a lot like Bruce Wayne as he would play an idiot until he would put on his suit, at which time he meant business and he is not anywhere near as snarky or sardonic.

They are very different and I have always felt that there is a lot of actors better suited for Iron Man, RDJ is too short and and nothing really screams "super hero" about him. He is just very charismatic, which I feel people confuse for him being a perfect fit in the role.

I agree with the list, I would of just listed it differently. Joker #1 and Downey as number 2.

Nice List. I prefer Chris Evans as the Human Torch though. I agree with most of the list.

Chiklis killed it. Dare I say his performance was iconic.

Karl Urban was a perfect Judge Dredd. I could not possibly ask for more out of a Dredd performance.

Shannon was a wonderful Zod.

Edited by wildvine

I agree with all but Reed.
