Marvel's 10 Greatest Movie Characters

Let's be honest, by the end of Summer 2012 this list could be even more useless than normal. Renner's Hawkeye could end up stealing the show in THE AVENGERS, Garfield looks like he might nail SPIDER-MAN, and Ruffalo's HULK might out-CGI all prior versions. Until then let's just deal with the class we have now. In a universe filled with thousands of unique heroes and villains very few have actually made the leap from page to screen interesting enough for anybody to care about. Let's just get to it so I can stop downloading pictures of men in tights.

Very good list

I would only switch up some positions. For me the top 3 is Iron Man, Blade and Fassbender's Magneto. Probably in that order

It's a fine list...

It's a fine list, for the most part, but I disagree with the order. I also wouldn't put Thomas Jane in the top 10...truth be told I wouldn't put him in the top 20 (but this is my opinion and I respect that you have a different opinion than me). I think my list would look more like this (and I am just spitballing here so this order could change at a moments notice):
Honorable Mentions: Whiplash, he looked awesome and could have been so cool, I think Iron Man 2 lost some potential with this

Jim, you compare McKellan and Fassbender to Brando and deNiro. That comparison is brilliant.
I liked the entire list in fact. The Nightcrawler deserved his honorable mention. Both Cumming and Romijn gave a lot to their roles.

I agree with Lastmass, awful

Worst list, I agree. Wolverine in comics is much cooler, even Aronofsky said the films didn't resemble the comic version of Logan, he was more the anti-hero than the lead hero, he was the grumpy, stocky, he was the counter-character to Cyclops' boy scout act, not the centerpiece eye candy Jackman portrays him as.

Is Aronofsky the quintessential expert on Wolverine? Is that why he bailed on the movie?

I don't think I could possibly disagree with this list more...

...aside from Downey/Stark at #2. No love for Patrick Stewart?! Can you NAME a more perfect casting choice for a superhero character ever?!?!

Hey Patrick, sit in this chair and read your lines like an intellectual. You think you can handle that?

No, I can't because the link didn't work so I can't see who you're talking about.

this is a...

bullshit list, Jane's Punisher better than Ray Stevenson's? I call Bullshit on that. And Jackman over Downey? And Heimdall? Opinion indeed

Heimdall was pretty bad ass, I'll give you that, but refering to what I do as bullshit because it differs from your opinion? Bullshit indeed.
