It’s a difficult task for movie studios to find exactly the right actor to guide a well-loved character off the comic book page and bring them to life. The fans are notoriously very protective over their favourite heroes/villains and any poor casting choices will be heavily scrutinized.
Naturally, then, Hollywood has fumbled the ball many a time over the years and seriously miscast certain superheroes or supervillains. While that is sad enough in itself, it’s even more infuriating when a much better fitting actor is out there for all the fans to see.
So, on that note, here are our picks for eight of the most heinously miscast actors in superhero movies, as well as some suggestions for who should have been cast instead. As always, if we’ve missed anyone on the list, or you have another idea for a replacement, let us know in the usual place below.
