How much do they nailed their roles?

Have you been bothered with their appereances?

Do you think their respective universes focus too much on them?

Both nail the roles with excellence.

I have enjoyed all of their appearances they just have good and bad movies.

Yes, but more to Wolverine than Iron Man.

HELL NO.. I don't give a damn about this "giving other's a turn" bs.. these two should NEVER give up these roles to anyone.. they're too close to the characters, and the bond they have built with these roles and audience over the YEARS has become something iconic in their own respective ways.

Their both great so thats my vote..Both of them turned the two characters into worldwide global marketing brand giants..I was a giant fan of Iron-man before RDJ but his portrayal took my fandom to new heights..And Hugh solidified my already immense fondness for the character.

Wolverine is probably the reason why superhero movies are popular at all. His only difference is that he is much taller than the comic version. I may not like that Logan and Tony are always in the spotlight but that doesn't mean they are perfect matches. Wolverine slightly better.

Hugh Jackman wolverine since I like all his x-men movie, even origin and Last Stand because that is how great he is.

RDJ is an amazing actor, and a great Tony Stark, but he couldn't sell his garbage second movie.

Can't choose one over the other. Both excell at the roles they inhabit which is why they're the icons of each franchise.

Both are great, and while I can't imagine anyone else playing Wolverine, RDJ just owns the role of Tony Stark. Especially in Civil War, his acting is sublime.

Wolverine is my favorite CMB character consistently appearing, so going with him mainly due to his ability to portray Wolverine's badassery yet a human side in the more recent films

Hugh Jackman neverphones it in. He loves Wolverine and he brings it every-time. Because of this I'm going with Hugh, but both are equal at their best.

Jackman easily for me, but Robert gets credit for starting the biggest franchise of all time.

Jackman was very good but RDJ became Tony Stark.

It is only natural Iron Man got this much focus in the MCU, he essentially started this whole thing. But these past few years he has gotten less focus, at least imo. Jackman on the other hand, got more attention than he should. And I am not just talking about his solo movies. The original trilogy was pretty much Wolverine and the X-Men. Fortunately that was toned down later.

And no, I wouldn't want someone else portraying them. Not soon anyway.

So, yeah, who do you prefer? Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. He's been so compelling as a character.

How much do they nailed their roles? Hugh Jackman. I honestly think he should've gotten an Oscar nomination for his role in Logan.

Have you been bothered with their appereances? No, not really.

Do you think their respective universes focus too much on them? Iron Man, no. Wolverine, yes. As much as I love the character, I do think too much of the X-Men franchise has been focused on him. Of the 11 X-Men movies there have been thus far, he's been the main character in 7 of them, and has had roles in another 2. The only Wolverine-less X-Men movies so far have been Deadpool and Deadpool 2. As I said earlier, he's a great character, but that doesn't mean he should be in every movie. I love Batman, but I do not want him in every Worlds of DC movie.

Do you want to see new actors in these roles in an immeadiate future? No, not for either of them.

RDJ.

Jackman never really caught a proper vision of Logan's character for me. Granted, he was still great, but he wasn't Wolverine for me, more like a alternative version that wasn't the same.

That, and the oversaturation of him kinda made the character super stale and, to a point, boring. Logan is the best movie overall between them through.

Yeah pretty much everyone changed since MCU it's not because they are good. Marvel just trying to make it's comics like MCU for obvious reasons.

RDJ walks into a bar and greats a man.

"Hello I'm Tony Stark, I'm IronMan"

Hugh Jackman Replies.

"Go F--k yourself"

Then takes a shot.

So, yeah, who do you prefer? RDJ as Iron Man by far.

How much do they nailed their roles? RDJ - 10/10 | HJ - 8.5/10

Have you been bothered with their appereances? Not really no.

Do you think their respective universes focus too much on them? Haven't finished the X-Men films. I think RDJ is focused on but that's not bad, he did start the MCU and is basically the main guy in the MCU who makes the film situations. Created Ultron (Causing Age of Ultron), recruited Spider-Man (Causing SM: Homecoming), was part of the Sokovia Accords (Caused half of Civil War).

Do you want to see new actors in these roles in an immeadiate future? Not really for RDJ, well not as Tony Stark at least, if it's a different Iron Man, then sure. Wolverine I would like to see either Tom Hardy or Scott Eastwood play him.
