Movie Superheroes - Who Pulled Off The Look Best?

Michael Keaton - Christian Bale
Okay, here's a good way to start a heated debate - Just ask a die hard superhero fan who they think was a better Batman - Michael Keaton or Christian Bale? How about Spider-Man? Was Tobey Maguire a better Webhead than Andrew Garfield? Now, I'm not talking about acting ability here - I mean who do you think looked most like the character is supposed to look. It's kind of a tough question, isn't it? I guess it boils down to how you envisioned the character before the movie was made. I know a lot of fans also want the movie version to match the comic book version pretty closely. So they prefer the actor who can pull that off.

Just for fun, the guys at put together this infographic that compares the actors mentioned above, as well as Christopher Reeve and Henry Cavill (Superman), and TV's Hulk - Lou Ferrigno vs the CGI Hulk from the 2003 movie. The graphic also includes some behind-the-scenes facts about how the actors prepared for their roles. Check it out and let me know what you think.

  1. all going to the left... vintage, old school... whatever works best.

    1. Hmm not sure I agree. Kinda liked Garfield's Spidey and Bale's Batman.

  2. Wooo. I agree with these all BUT I think it is sacrilege to compare Christopher Reeve to anybody and I am also slightly biased towards Andrew Garfield.
