7) Michael Fassbender – Jonah Hex
It wasn’t just Josh Brolin who was wasted in Jonah Hex, as the movie also squandered great actors like John Malkovich, Michael Shannon, Will Arnett and, um, Megan Fox. Behind Brolin, though, the most egregious sin of the film is not making the most out of Michael Fassbender.
Superhero film fans will know the German-Irish actor from his terrific turn as the younger Magneto in the X-Men prequel films. It’s a shame, then, that DC didn’t use him better when they nabbed the actor for one of their movies, as well. In Jonah Hex, Fassbender plays the psychopathic assassin Burke – he’s probably the most memorable supporting character in the movie, but he’s supremely underused nonetheless.
Still, Will Arnett got to voice LEGO Batman after appearing in this movie, so maybe Fassbender could land himself another DC character sometime in the future? Let’s just hope they make it a leading role this time, though, eh?
