We live in a world where the Human Torch is Captain America, Hal Jordan is Dead Pool, and now Daredevil is Batman.  We have had a handful of different Batmans, a few Supermen, and a couple of Spider-man.  Are there some actors who do the role so well that we shouldn't see replacement anytime soon?

The easy two are Hugh Jack Man as Wolverine and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.  Both Actors have talked about retiring from the resprective roles.  It is hard to imagine now but they could eventually get replaced by a new actors.  

How do you feel about this? and are there other Actors/Actresses that are so Iconic in thier role that you don't want to see someone else fill the role?


For me, I also felt that Toby Maguire was a great Peter Parker, which is one of the reasons why Its hard to get into the new Spiderman.  I also think Patrick Stewart is older Professer X and J.K. Simmons is J. Jonah Jameson.

- I am not against reboots and giving others a shot at playing these Iconic characters.  It's just hard to imagine anyone else being Wolverine any time soon.

Nicolas Cage as Ghost Rider.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.


Henry Cavil is pretty cool.

Thanks for including Reeve in the poll, I assumed he'd be forgotten. The old Superman films are certainly dated, but his portrayal of Clark Kent is as good as it gets.

I always liked Keaton's Bruce Wayne as well.

I chose Christopher Reeves.

If Chris Evans was available, I would have picked him for Captain America.

It is near the end of the end....

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I had him in the poll but replaced him by the other option.

He makes a much better Cap than the Human Torch.

Ron Perlman's Hellboy doesnt get enough credit.

Hard to imagine anyone else in that role, much like Hugh Jackman w/ Wolverine and Robert D Junior w/ Tony Stark.
