Five of the Best Marvel Movie Acting Performances

Marvel Avengers Assemble - European Premiere

Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. is the most no-brainer pick on this list. He’s the king of the Marvel movie – the guy that started it all in the first Iron Man film. In all three Iron Man movies, Downey Jr. has been smug and narcissistic as Tony Stark while also being equally strong and heroic as Iron Man. However, whether he’s got the suit on or not, Downey Jr. is always one thing, and that’s charismatic. We’ll definitely see him in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and I really hope that’s not the last we will ever see of Downey Jr. in a Marvel movie. He’s just too good to let go.

      Edward Norton is a great pick, Steve! I would have loved to have seen him continue with the role in The Avengers. He was actually my number six choice when I was making this list.
