This weekend I got together with a group of old friends and asked which superhero had been cast most egregiously, and which were the best embodiment of the heroes and villains depicted. The impassioned discussion went on all evening, everyone had their own nominations for the title but no one was able to agree, and so I’m opening the voting up for you. We put together our 15 top choices (in no particular order) for the best superhero casting, best super villain casting, worst superhero casting, and worst super villain casting. Please choose and rank your top three choices out of each of the four sections.
Take the quick, 4 question survey here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XYDPPQT and please share it with your friends!
Note: The rules we came up with are as follows;
- We only considered actors in live-action superhero movies (as opposed to television specials or cartoons).
- The only movies which count are ones which have been made and released (rather than movies which were cast but then never actually produced, or movies which haven’t been released yet, even though there are some juicy ones coming).
- And finally, this is only choosing the best and worst superhero and super villain casting choices (because if we expand this to cover all of the casting in superhero movies this survey would never be finished).
Check Comics Should Be Good in a week or two I’ll post the results.
Note: These nominations are clearly personal and you're welcome to discuss your own thoughts in the comment section below.
