IMHO, the best = Heath Ledger/Joker, I honestly don't care for Joker as a character but this was easily the best film adaptation of a comic character.

Worst = Ryan Reynolds/Deadpool, honestly I don't think there is a worse version of Deadpool possible. A character that's known for his mouth has no mouth??? Deadpool has claws and laser vision all of a sudden and his body color and look was completely idiotic.

What do you think??

Best: Heath Ledger - a freshly inventive take on the character and one of the most iconic supervillain portrayals. He really took the role of the Joker and made it his own.

RDJ's Iron Man gets a shoutout though. Even though he had a little more snark than 616 Tony, it's definitely one of the most accessible takes on the character and a large factor in the trilogy's success. Then there's also Ron Perlman as Hellboy, who while was more humorous than his comic counterpart, was still a fun romping bad@ss. Shoutouts to Sir Ian McKellen as Magneto and Patrick Stewart as Professor X too.

Another one that springs to mind is Christopher Reeve - who played the perfect duality of Superman and Clark Kent. I also enjoyed Chris Evans' Captain America, who completely nailed the role of Cap as the good guy with a moral compass. This was a Cap who was infinitely likeable as a lead. I also liked Jackman's Wolverine, no doubt, but the man was too tall! Oh, and Fassbender was superb, as was McAvoy.

Worst: Nicholas Cage as Ghost Rider. I couldn't take the dude seriously at all. It ranged from taking itself too seriously to not taking itself seriously at all. I just...dude was hilarious and totally unfitting for the role. And I'd like to erase the memory of Deadpool from my mind.

lol! mine would be the same as this ^^^... except I would replace Loki (good, but not my favourite) with Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, Danny DeVito as Penguin or Mickey Rourke as Marv, all 3 were awesome imo.

I'm getting tired of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine tbh, I think there's plenty of actors who could do a much better job. I also thought Mandarin was terrible.

Best:

Hellboy - Ron Perlman

Dr. Octopus - Alfred Molina

Joker - Heath Ledger

Catwoman - Michelle Pfeiffer

Charles Xavier - Patrick Stewart

Worst:

Cyclops - James Marsden

Jean Grey - Famke Janssen

Angel - Ben Foster

Juggernaut - Vinnie Jones

Rogue - Anna Paquin

I couldn't think up a worst casting call for X-Men characters if I tried. Jean Grey is old enough to be Scott's mother. Angel was just some kid (could you imagine a Fantastic Four movie where Ben Grimm was just some random kid uninvolved in the main plot?). Cyclops would be a decent leader if he ever stopped crying, and man... Anna Paquin was playing an interesting character, but it had no semblance of Rogue.

Best: Iron Man/Tony Stark

Worst: Galactus

Are animated film adaptions included? The best portrayal of any character, both live-action and animated, would easily go to Mark Hamill's voice work for the Joker. The only other character portrayal that can compete with Hamill's performance would be john DiMaggio's voice work for the Joker.

???? Famke Janssen was about 30 in the first X-Men film, hardly old. Of course she is going to look older over the course of 7 or 8 years...she is human. Also, Jean Grey is a fictional character with whatever age you imagine her to be, not to mention the fact that in the comics, the senior X-Men are supposedly in their 30's anyways....Basically, I don't understand that comment.

@cattlebattle:

Famke Janssen is 10 years older than Jame Marsden. She was 40 when they shot X-2. I was exaggerating a little, but the age difference was blatant.

All good choices.

I would've put RDJ as Iron Man behind Joker, then Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo and then Garfield.

(spoilers ahead, don't read If you haven't seen IM3)

You guys are talking about Mandarin, well when I saw the movie. There was no Mandarin, he technically did not appear in the movie. Because it was Trevor the actor, and Killian the one manipulating him. Kilian even said he used Mandarin as a symbol to give the world something to hate on.

Mandarin was never even in that movie to begin with. (which actually gives me hope that the real Mandarin might appear somewhere else in the MCU ;))

Iron man certainly isn't one of y favorite heroes (due to civil war) however I think that Robert Downey jr plays him perfectly.
