7 Actors And Actresses Who Could Play The Role Of Superheroes
If a few decades ago a comic book fan was told that after a while they would see their favorite characters from the pages of comics on the screen live, you can be sure that they would consider you crazy. But time passes, and times change. Comics have long been an integral part of the film industry, moreover, most films based on the adventures of superheroes every time break into all sorts of tops and lead almost all ratings.
Thus, a film in the comics genre is often a 100% hit on the target, which collects huge sums and many directors only dream of taking the vacant place and showing the world their vision and interpretation of popular characters.
Despite this, there are some factors that directors must adhere to in order to attract an audience. Attracting big names is an integral part of any film’s production. Know that if there are at least a few big names on the list, the movie will be a success.
Every year, Marvel and DC produce dozens of movies, delving more and more into the multiverse and launching new franchises on the market. But there is a list of high-caliber actors who have not yet been involved in any of the superhero blockbusters, and we will talk about them. Meet: seven great actors who could perform any superhero role.
1. Ryan Gosling
Oscar-winner, star of dozens of films, the man who steals millions of hearts every day around the world, Ryan Gosling, is rightfully included in the list of the best actors of our time. And, to be honest, we still don’t understand why this handsome guy hasn’t been featured in any projects yet. I think you will agree with us that Ryan would be very limited in the role of Daredevil or human Torch. Moreover, we are sure that if this man was assigned to play the role of millionaire Bruce Wayne and simultaneously one of the main characters of the comics, Batman, this young man with a defined jaw would look very organic.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio
In just a few decades, this man has gone from a promising actor to one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood today. The list of films in which Leonardo managed to participate is so huge that it does not even make sense to list them. More importantly, Leo always takes a responsible approach to his work and in each of the films he is so convincing that you stop believing that you are looking at an actor. At the time, Leonardo DiCaprio was supposed to play the role of Spider-Man, but declined for personal reasons, citing his unpreparedness for the role. Moreover, he was offered the role of Robin when the Director’s chair was occupied by Joel Schumacher, but the actor still declined the offer. Now imagine Leo in the role of a superhero. Imagined? We think Leo would have made a great Green Lantern, and we’re sure Ryan Gosling wouldn’t have been upset at all.
3. Tom Hardy
This person is an exception to this list. Many have already watched Tom as venom in the film of the same name, as well as in the role of Bane in the final trilogy of the Batman film, and we are sure that many will agree that these roles are not enough. Many would prefer to see this man in more superhero movies, and will be entirely right. Moreover, we have an idea who this man could play. Spider-Jerusalem. For those who are not familiar with this character, we will make a small acquaintance. Spider-Jerusalem is an iconic character from the indie comic book Transmetropolitan. This character appears before us in the role of a gonzo journalist, likes to lean on drugs and alcohol, and also swears as if his future life depends on it. Despite all this, the character struggles with corrupt politicians and corrupt police officers. We believe that after this description, you will agree with us that Tom hardy is an ideal hit in a possible film adaptation.
4. Bradley Cooper
Another actor who can be included in this list by half. In case you don’t know, Bradley is the voice of the Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy. Never theless, we would very much like to see this actor at least once in any superhero movie, because Bradley is a masterful actor and an ornament to absolutely any project.
5. Charlize Theron
The dazzling Charlize needs no introduction. Any appearance in the movie is accompanied by a strong reaction, and despite the fact that the actress has played in several visual novel adaptations (Atomic Blonde and Old Guard), she has not yet appeared in a superheroic. Whatever universe Charlize appears in, we are sure that the actress will cope 100%. But most of all, we would like to see this actress in the MCU, and more specifically in the X-Men. This franchise has recently started a complete overhaul, and we are sure that Dazzler would be convincing in the role of Brilliant. And you?
6. Natalie Dormer
Another actress who has not yet taken part in the creation of superheroics. However, Natalie Dormer, the star of Game of Thrones, as well as other films, is as suitable as anyone for the role of a female superhero. How about Kitty Pryde or even Emma Frost? I’m sure you’ll agree with us that it would be incredibly persuasive.
7. John Krasinski
If earlier this actor preferred to star in comedies, in recent years he has made a bias towards dramas that truly touch the soul. We are sure that John would be very organic in the role of a superhero. Moreover, not so long ago, there were rumors that John was approved for the role of Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four universe, but this is currently just a rumor. But most of all, we would like to see him in the role of Captain America, if this hero ever appears in one of the alternate universes of marvel.
