Five of the Best Marvel Movie Acting Performances

Tesla Worldwide Debut of Model X - Red Carpet

Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America

It must be pretty easy as an actor to phone in a bland and boring performance when you get the role of the “boy scout,” “good guy” character, yet Chris Evans is consistently entertaining and always interest as Steve Rogers in the Captain America films. In the first installment, Evans had to be the quintessential 1940s war hero, but in both The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he’s been allowed to expand on his performance, digging into Steve’s “fish out of water” nature in the present day and also showing off even more physicality as he battles against the corruption that is Hydra inside of S.H.I.E.L.D.

      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.
