Best performances in Comic book movies of all time.

Okay which superhero and Super villains performances do you consider the best of all time?



Robert Downey Jr. As Iron Man

he became Iron Man and gave this character an iconic Status.
he was able to be funny or serious when it was needed. He has a perfect timing either for comedy and Drama which was perfect for portraying this character.

Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

he made Thor Cool and Like RDJ brought an unknown character to an Iconic Status but he really had his great time shine till Thor Ragnarock.
it was finally Taika Waititi who knew how this character worked best and Chris did a great Job with the all the comedy this part needed.

Chris Evans as Captain America

He made a character who seems perfect and boring interesting and a little flawed. Characters as nice as cap most of the times can be the most boring but Chris Evans managed to do him interesting.

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

She proved female superhero films can work well. She is charming, sweet, funny and she is great in action scenes.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine

He convinced all detractors who thought he was wrong for the this role to be the Man to portray Wolverine


Joaquin Phoenix and Heath Ledger as The Joker

It’s impossible to pick just one of them you see both of their commitment to this part on screen.
Both have that creepy laugh to perfection, moves, voice and that did great portraying the craziness and unpredictability which comes with this character.

Tom Hiddleston as Loki

Loki is a villain who is not that bad and well has some good motives to be the way he is.

Tom was great in the role since day one and was perfect to show us that funny side of this character but also the tragedy.
He always kept us guessing if he was gonna hurt Thor or save him

He made Thor The Dark world not that awful.

Cate as Blanchett as Hella

Hella is one of those cartoonish over the top villains and Cate Blanchett see,s like she had so much fun with it and we did too.

Josh Brolin as Cable
Yes was great as Thanos too but I thought he was better as Cable had better motivations for his actions and I loved that at the end of the film he becomes an Ally.

Anti heroes

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool

Super funny and was great breaking the the third wall. He made people who don’t care for comic book movies to enjoy this film very much.

Michelle Pfieffer as CatWoman.

She will always be the best in this part. She had everything that part needs. Just perfect.

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

She ended up being te star of that film. She was sexy funny and a little tragic a perfect mixture to keep our attention to this movie The Who, whole time.


I agree with your list, though I really don't see Joker as a comic book movie.


But it is a comic book movie. Not all comic book is for children.


I can see why but I still do because it’s set in Gotham City with Thomas Wayne being an important part of the story and well we know how it ends.


Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker. There's no even competition.
Michelle Pfeiffer was phenomenal as Catwoman.

Michael Keaton was amazing as Batman. Chris Evans was great as Cap. America too

I really loved Dolph Lundgren as The Punisher as well


Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor
Terence Stamp as Zod


Brandon Lee as The Crow


Awesome film. Great villains too especially the leader.


Even the lowly henchmen were great. And the pawn shop guy. “You’re nothing but street grease, ya hear me? STREET GREASE!”


Hugh Jackman owns Wolverine. Can't see them successfully rebooting that with anyone else for a few decades.

Hemsworth as Thor the right mix of humour and self deprecation.

Downey Jr as Iron Man another role owned.

Christopher Reeve is still the best Superman/Clark Kent.


You forgot Adam West as Batman


Never seen that but I guess I should have still included because it’s iconic in its own way. It was first and only Time Batman was campy and worked for it’s time


Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart in Logan


Ledger as the Joker
Pfeiffer as Catwoman
Nicholson as the Joker
Ian McKellen as Magneto
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine
