Five of the Best Marvel Movie Acting Performances

The Marvel Studios: "Thor: The Dark World" And "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" - Comic-Con International 2013

Tom Hiddleston as Loki

This list would not be complete without Tom Hiddleston. There’s a reason why Loki has been the only major returning villain in any Marvel movie, and that’s because Hiddleston’s performance is charming, so disarmingly entrancing, even as Loki is being incredibly evil, that moviegoers just crave more and more of him. It’s pretty freaking difficult to make the villain of a franchise more popular than its hero, but with his performances in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World, Hiddleston has done just that. Hopefully, we see even more of him in future Marvel movies. I have a sneaking suspicion that we just might.

      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.
