Superheroes have always been a prominent part of pop culture but in recent years there has been a never ending onslaught of our favorite heroes brought to the big screen. With almost every single one of them getting their screen time including Aquaman (who Jason Momoa will dominate as) and Ben Affleck being cast as Batman (much to the confusion and horror of pretty much everyone), now is as good a time as ever to look at superhero castings thus far and pick out the best. With so many comic book and graphic novel characters brought to the big screen, an honorable mention goes to Wesley Snipes as Blade, Ron Perlman as Hellboy and the Kick-Ass team, but we’re sticking to the majors from the DC and Marvel universes.
12. Ryan Reynolds As Deadpool
Sure Deadpool has not come out yet, but fans are already convinced that Ryan Reynolds was the perfect choice for Wade Wilson after he already made an appearance in the role in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds also has the unique chance of redeeming himself in the superhero world after being heavily criticised for 2011’s Green Lantern. Early shots of Deadpool seem to show that indeed the filmmakers knew what they were doing with this casting decision and Reynolds will have no problem carrying a stand-alone superhero film.
