Poll: If Chris Hemsworth and Henry Cavill swapped superhero roles, who would perform better? (31 votes)

Chris Hemsworth would perform better as Superman 65%
Henry Cavill would perform better as Thor 35%

I'm going with Cavill here, having recently read some Thor comics I've noticed that the comic Thor is a lot more tense and serious, a lot less of a clown. Cavill can definitely play a serious and tense Thor.

I think Cavill would've been even better as Thor. I like Hemsworth's portrayal but it's just not like the Thor from the comics.

They're both great actors but Henry Cavill is even better imo. They're both great at comedy.

They arent changing the scripts though. Hemsworth is Thor

@kgb725: Assume that the scripts would be changed to fit the actor.

Neither really. They are really fitting casts, though Cavill more so. I still think Alexander Skarsgard would've been perfect for Thor. I mean, it's right there in SkArSGARD for eff's sake.

@adamtrmm: Funny, Jane's mentor is his father.

@adamtrmm: Actually I'd say Cavill's demeanour is more accurate to the Thor from the comics than Hemsworth's exuberance.

Superman would be a stand up comedian

Feel like Hemsworth could inject some much needed life into a Superman portrayal, but that's probably not Cavill's fault.

Cavill as Thor would be interesting to see, would be weird to see blonde Cavill though.

@ash101: From watching Mission: Impossible - Fallout, I think he could embody the warrior characteristics of Thor.

I really can't picture Superman with Chris Hemsworth's voice.

Chris Hemsworth is the better actor, but it's hard to picture him as Superman, and it's also hard to see Cavill as Thor.

I literally cannot picture this, at all.

They're both good actors, but I just don't see Cavill as a bearded blonde. Whereas Hemsworth's performance as Kirk's father in Star Trek suggests to me he could conceivably be Superman.

Both would be terrible fits for each others roles. Hemsworth is the better actor though so ehh....I guess him.

@ghostodoofus2:

Funny, Jane's mentor is his father.

I'd trade them without hesitation. Not dissing Stellan, but his character wasn't all that great.

The second they said Hemsworth's natural humor should be integrated into Thor, to me it was settled he isn't the right choice.
