Casting a Superhero is a very important part of whether or not a Comic Book Film will be successful. It’s hard enough to take a character from a page and breathe life into them but it’s even harder when many of these characters are so beloved to by the general population. Especially when many of us all ready have ideas in our head of what those characters would be like if they ever came to life.
Not to mention, while just about anyone can slap on a mask and tights and deliver a solid performance, often times, the actor charged with bringing the heroes alter-ego to life will often determine whether or not the film will be successful. (Example: Clooney as Bruce Wayne… not so much!)
That being said, I thought it would be fun to take a look at what I think are some of the best “good guy” casting decisions in the short history of Comic Book Films.
