The movies in the Marvel Universe are about American superheroes that are based on Marvel Comics publications. These movies began to be produced in 2007 and nowadays more than twenty films have been produced and there are even others that are in production stages.
On the other hand, if we talk about Marvel’s casting, we can say that it is one of the best that exists within the film franchise. It is for this reason that we want to mention some actors who have stood out above others.
Marvel and the characters that have stood out the most until now
All the fans agree that Marvel has done a lot of good things lately. If we want to find the origin for all the success they have acquired, we must go back to the beginning of the time, when we still didn’t have the interpreters who were going to give life to those characters that we would keep in our hearts.
We can highlight that the casting that was carried out to choose these characters was one of the best successes that this cinematographic universe could have. Hardly anyone has complaints about them and many people think that they were born to play these characters.
Next, we will review the names of the characters that have caused the most impact during all this time. For this, we will also take into account the great resemblance they have with the versions of the comics and the idea of the superhero that comes to our mind.
Chris Evans as Steve Rogers
Christopher Robert Evans was born in Boston on June 13, 1981. He is an American actor, director, and producer. He was raised in the town of Sudbury and from an early age showed interest in acting.
After finishing high school, he decided to move to New York to study theater. In 1997 he made his acting debut in a short film and in 2000, he starred in the series Opposite Sex. After a while, he got more recognition and appeared in films like Not Another Teen Movie in 2001 and of course, The Perfect Score in 2004.
If we talk about his interpretations in the Marvel universe, in 2011 he won recognition for playing Captain America in the movie Captain America: The first Avenger. This film was very well received by the audience and it raise 370 million dollars.
On the other hand, if we refer to the resemblance that the character or actor has in real life, we can say that it has somehow been mimicked. Although Steve has personality traits that Chris doesn’t have, sometimes we don’t know where one begins and the other ends. That’s because Evans was born for this character and they can’t be separated anymore.
Tom Holland as Spider-Man in the world of marvel
Thomas Stanley Holland was born in London on June 1, 1996. He is a British actor, voice actor and dancer. In 2008 he began his career in the theater when he played the main character in the musical Billy Elliot.
After graduating from the BRIT School in 2012, he made his film debut with the film The Impossible in 2012 and he achieve to be named by the National Board of Review as the Breakthrough Actor of that year, in addition to being nominated for the Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Young Actor.
His first appearance in Marvel was in “Captain America: Civil War” as one of the members of the Iron Man team. He really was the one who was in charge of tilt the scales in combat.
Eric Carroll, executive producer of Spider Man, commented in a video where the audtion of Tom was announced that whenever a role as big as Spider Man is going to be chosen, there must be a great search involved.
At first, there were many doubts about Tom Holland’s performance as Spider-Man, but at the end, he could convince all the fans. In spite of everything, he is one of the great responsible for the fact that the best version of Spider-Man never seen before is already being talked about. We don’t know if it would have been possible to do it without this British actor who we also see acting as Peter Parker too.
Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark
Robert John Downey Jr was born in New York on April 4, 1965. He is an American actor, voice actor, producer, and singer. In his childhood he studied acting in New York and his career began at an early age appearing in films that were directed by his father.
After a while, he moved with his father to California and dropped out of school to fully focus on his acting career.
Downey achieve the fame when he entered to the Marvel world to play Iron Man several times from 2008 to 2019. All of these films became blockbusters and are considered the most successful films in history too.
Thanks to that role, he has could be considered one of the highest paid actors in the film industry.
Robert is a clear example that the actor and his character in the film sometimes seem the same person. In addition, it is not only that today we can’t imagine another person playing Iron Man because after so many movies we shudder at the possibility of that happening.
Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Christopher Hemsworth was born in Melbourne on August 11, 1983. He was raised in the community of Bulman, northern Australia.
Hemsworth began his acting career in 2002 with minor appearances on television series in his country. When he moved to Sydney after several years, he got recognition when he joined the main cast of Home and Away, a serie for which he recorded 189 episodes in three years.
As time went by, he moved to the United States where he achieved worldwide recognition with his role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring in the Thor movies that were blockbusters and garnered positive reviews.
All people think that anyone could have given life to the God of Thunder because at first he didn’t have the impact that everyone expected on the public, however, as days went by, Hemsworth could make this role in this film something completely his and unique.
We don’t want another Thor. Chris is the perfect person for the role and it has been proven.
Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange
Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch is a British television, stage, film and voice actor. He entered to the world of fame with his performance of Stephen Hawking in the film Hawking in 2004. Later, he played the character of William Pitt in the historical film Amazing Grace in 2006.
This character is also known for playing Doctor Strange in the Marvel movies: Marvel Doctor Strange in 2016, Thor: Ragnarok in 2017, Avengers: Infinity War in 2018 and Avengers: Endgame in 2019.
All the fans really wanted to see Doctor Strange on the screen and with the choice of Benedict that could be possible. It was a great choice. We don’t imagine who can protest for an actor like him, but in superhero topics things change.
However, Benedict convinced everyone before he even started. And without a doubt he was born for the role too.
