9) Michael B. Jordan
Michael B. Jordan’s star is still on the rise, but he’s already played a handful of superhero roles.
Firstly, he starred as Steve, one of three teens who gain telekinetic powers in 2012’s found-footage superhero movie Chronicle. Jordan teamed up with director Josh Trank again for 2015’s Fantastic Four, in which the actor played his most known superhero role – Johnny Storm AKA The Human Torch. In between those two movies, he also voiced Cyborg in the Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox animated movie in 2013.
It’s surprising, then, that Jordan will be swapping his superhero image to play a villain in the upcoming Marvel movie Black Panther, coming in 2018. Jordan will play Erik Killmonger. In case the name doesn’t clue you in, Killmonger is one of T’Challa’s deadliest foes in the comics.
