Through various mediums of entertainment, there are certain characters that have stood the test of time for decades or even centuries. Whether they’ve been told in books, shown through pictures in comic-books, or appeared in movies they stick with us no matter how much time passes. However, a character portrayed in any given film is only as good as the actor portraying them. We all have our favorite actors, though depending on how they depict a particular character with an established history and reputation will determine how good their performance is. While some actors may put a new spin on the character that either improves them or makes them seem less cool, the best performances are the ones that are the most spot-on that understand the character’s importance as a whole and captures what makes them great in the first place.
For instance, the reason we like Chris Evans’ portrayal of Captain America as opposed to Matt Salinger’s version from the original 1990 film of the same name is because Evans captured the character’s underdog nature which in turn made him more compelling while Salinger had the right look but not the character. So pick which actor you think portrayed these famous movie characters the best and we’ll determine what your favorite movie currently is!
