Top 10 Most Hated Casting Choices That Turned Out Great

Movie fans are a picky bunch. We all have preconceived notions of which actors should play which roles despite having no say in the matter whatsoever. With the advent of the Internet, we all voice our opinions and many of us take this as an opportunity to completely destroy and ridicule casting selections that do not meet what we expect. Looking back through history, here are ten of the most ravaged casting decisions that ended up becoming some of the best choices in Hollywood history. If you think we missed on or you disagree, let us know in the talk backs below.

#10 - Tom Cruise as Lestat

When Anne Rice's popular novel INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE was announced to become a film, the author wanted Julian Sands to play the role of Lestat. When the studio chose Tom Cruise, the novelist was vocally opposed to the choice which she deemed to be bizarre. Fans of the novel sided with Rice, but once the film was released everyone was onboard with Cruise's portrayal of the undead aristocrat.

#9 - Hugh Jackman as Wolverine

Imagine what the X-MEN franchise would be if Russell Crowe had accepted the part and not suggested his friend Hugh Jackman. Jackman was an unknown at the time outside of Australia and fans could not picture the actor who bore no physical similarity to the comic book Canadian. But, when Dougray Scott dropped out of the role of Logan, Jackman would go on to become the fan favorite and longest running actor to play the same comic book character on the big screen.

#8 - Ben Affleck as Batman

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has been a very divisive film for audiences, but the majority have been overwhelming supportive of Ben Affleck's portrayal of The Dark Knight. Sure, his motivations may be unlike the traditional Batman, but Affleck's gravitas and intensity have won over fans who just a couple of years ago were decrying this casting decision as one of the worst of all time.

#7 - Chris Evans as Captain America

Chris Evans was one of the highlights of the first two FANTASTIC FOUR films for his smarmy portrayal of Johnny Storm but when he was selected to play Captain America, many didn't see him as the right choice for the first Avenger. After seeing him knock it out of the park in Joe Johnston's first movie, fans have instantly been won over by his leadership role in the two AVENGERS films and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. There is no doubt fans will be sad when Evans stops playing Steve Rogers but that goes to show how jumping to conclusions can sometimes backfire on you.

#6 - Tobey Maguire as Spider-man

When the 27-year-old Maguire was announced as the teen Peter Parker, the studio and fans could not see the actor known for his dramatic turns in films like THE CIDER HOUSE RULES as Spider-man. Maguire doesn't exactly fit the physical profile for a superhero, but after undergoing extensive physical training, Maguire won over fans with his approachable take as the webslinger.

#5 - Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle

After Michelle Pfieffer's sexually charged turn as Catwoman in Tim Burton's BATMAN RETURNS, many didn't see Anne Hathaway as a fit for the character. There has long been an overwhelming hate for Hathaway (something I don't understand, but that is just me) and fans did not like the selection. While I don't think Hathaway played "Catwoman" but rather Selina Kyle which allowed her the freedom of playing a cat burglar rather than a take on the comic book villain.

#4 - Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man

Before IRON MAN, Robert Downey Jr had entered into a difficult phase of his career thanks to his drug addiction. From 2000-2008, Downey appeared in very few films, but his performances were lauded. After resurging with KISS KISS BANG BANG, ZODIAC, and TROPIC THUNDER, Downey still struggled to find leading roles. It was because of Jon Favreau's urging that Paramount and Marvel took a chance and the rest is history. Downey has always had a dedicated core fan-base, but it was not until his take on Tony Stark that he became the superstar he is today.

#3 - Daniel Craig as James Bond

It is well established that Craig was not viewed by fans as an acceptable choice to play James Bond. The blonde actor did not meet the physical requirements of any actor who played Bond before him which led to fans feeling that CASINO ROYALE would be a disaster. Martin Campbell's film set itself apart as more in line with the Bourne franchise and has spawned three very successful sequels and cemented Craig as a fan favorite 007.

#2 - Heath Ledger as The Joker

When Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker, fans called bullshit on the choice. How could Ledger even compete with Jack Nicholson's portrayal? The vitriol was overflowing and the rest is history. It is a shame that Ledger passed away so young and didn't get to enjoy his Academy Award for the performance few thought he could pull off.

#1 - Michael Keaton as Batman

Probably the least accepted actor for a role on this list, no one thought Keaton was a good choice for Tim Burton's BATMAN. In 1989, Keaton was known primarily for comedic roles like MR. MOM and BEETLEJUICE with the occassional dramatic turn like CLEAN AND SOBER. Once fans saw Keaton in the dual role of Batman and Bruce Wayne, everyone shut their mouths. Once Keaton dropped from the franchise (a decision fictionalized in the acclaimed BIRDMAN), it would be thirteen years before Christian Bale would reinvigorate the franchise after Val Kilmer and George Clooney failed to reach the bar Keaton set so high.

Disagree with me all you want, but Craig is my favorite Bond ever (followed by George Lazenby). Connery did it first,but I think that Craig has done it best,he's definitely brought a lot more depth and nuance to the role than any of his predecessors.

His Johnny Storm was the only thing I legitimately liked about the Tim Story FF films (okay, Silver Surfer was pretty cool in the second one). However, while his frat boy/bro approach was appropriate to that character it seemed to seep over into many of his other roles ( understandable in "Not Another Teen Movie" and "The Perfect Score" but also in projects like "Cellular"). I just hadn't seen him demonstrate much range and most of his major roles had been in pretty weak films. I was definitely

I just hadn't seen him demonstrate much range and most of his major roles had been in pretty weak films. I was definitely in the camp that was against his casting as Cap, and to be honest I wasn't very impressed with him in "The First Avenger." However, I became sold after seeing him in The Avengers and felt that he gives one of the best performances of the MCU in The Winter Soldier.

I think Tom Cruise should be higher on the list. Anne Rice did a complete 180 once she saw his portrayal of Lestat, and even put out an ad in a newspaper applauding his performance.

Still a great list though.

I don't know what it is, but Keaton never did it for me as Bruce Wayne. I just never really got the vibe from him. Though I did like him as Batman, whenever he was on as Bruce, it was never all that believable. He just always seemed like a regular guy pretending to be a rich guy, instead of a rich guy pretending to be a playboy. That's why I think I have a tough time, because people were half right: he got the Batman part down, but I still didn't buy his Bruce Wayne.

Agreed. He wasn't bad, and he definitely did put forth a commendable effort, I just honestly think he as a little miscast and as such never felt like a completely good fit (again, more so as Bruce Wayne than as Batman).

I was in the camp that doubted him. Everyone knew him as a pretty boy with a fairly middling career, the highlight of which was probably A Knight's Tale and Ten Things I Hate About You, and maybe Brokeback Mountain. It really is a shame that he died before TDK was even released because that would have made his career.

I honestly wasn't terribly familiar with his work before Iron Man. I knew of him and had probably seen him in films before Iron Man, but his popularity before the big drug period wasn't something I knew much about. But his portrayal of Tony Stark is probably one of the best comic book character portrayals I have seen. Which, I suppose is easy, when the character you're playing has so much in common with yourself.

To be honest, I felt lukewarm towards Ben as Bruce/Batman, but I don't fault that with him. He did a fine job, I just don't think we had ample enough time to judge. He really needs a go at a solo film to fit the utility belt. That said, I am far more willing to see him in a solo Batman film than I was when he was announced for BvS.

Yes there were, I was one and there were plenty of others. I felt the same way about him playing IronMan as I would about Ridley Scott directing Green Lantern. If I could get the Ridley from 20 years ago? Heck yes. But the Ridley from today, no thanks. By the time IronMan came out Downey, Jr. had sunk to appearing in the likes of Charlie Bartlett and I wasn't interested in all and that seemed to be a pretty common feeling at the time. I remember Viggo Mortensen and Jim Caviezel being fan

Perhaps my memory is fuzzy but I don't recall a particularly big outcry about Jackman's casting, probably because no one knew who he was at the time. I think there was a larger upset over Halle Berry as Storm (because Angela Bassett would have fucking owned it.)

Spider-man 2 was considered the best superhero film of the new century. People all over the world (and the internet) loved it. And because of the third film, they forgot how much they loved it.

Agreed. Spider-Man 1 still has it's moments, but hasn't aged particularly gracefully, however Spider-Man 2 still holds up in my book as an excellent way to adapt a film that literally feels like a comic book come to life, but still has strong characterization and real emotional stakes (which are things that I feel like a lot of "comic book come to life" films like Watchmen or Sin City lack.)

This is a case where I think history is being a bit rewritten. When the first Batman came out, the only thing people talked about was Nicholson's Joker. When the sequel came out, it was Pfeiffer's Catwoman. Keaton is a terrific actor but these aren't the films that will show you that. He was an actor lost in a suit and there wasn't a feeling his shoes would be tough to fill when he left.

I had exactly the reaction I was expecting with that comment but that's truly what I remember. The suit Keaton was wearing is one of the least practical costume ever seen on screen and it's hard not to feel his discomfort when you watch those films. You force an actor to move like a robot and you set him up against the likes of Nicholson, Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito - who all play characters more colorful than yours and all wear more comfortable costumes - and it doesn't really matter how good

He definitely would have done better wearing one of the newer suit and working for a director a little better at characterization.

I'm not saying Keaton did bad - he did as well as he could - but when you compare it to not-yet-respected Heath Ledger winning an Oscar, it doesn't make much sense to me.

Affleck was awesome. I didn't have anything against his casting. Although I'm one of those crazy people that liked Daredevil, it's far from a great movie but I liked it. Really this was one of those weird outside the box decisions that made total sense when I looked at it on paper. Affleck did a lot for Warner Brothers. Gone Baby Gone and The Town were both very successful. Then of course Argo winning Best Picture helped the studio a lot. So it makes sense that they would try to capitalize off

He will always be my favorite Peter Parker/Spider Man. He just embodied the perfect Peter Parker and made you care for his Spider Man persona that much more when it came to the situations that he was numerously in throughout the trilogy. Also helps he was apart of some of the best comic book folks before the whole craze took off.

Keaton is still my favorite Batman on-screen. I say that because I still hold that Bale was great at being Bruce Wayne in the suit. I always felt like even though you knew that Batman and Wayne were one the same Keaton managed to make it feel like he was playing two different characters. I must say it is interesting that so many Batman related characters showed up on the list. They have some damn good actors (some not so much) to play the characters in the Batverse.

I was always a fan of his even before he got the role, but will admit that I couldn't see it at first. But after seeing him become Captain America and fully embracing the character after four films, he's just as great playing Rogers as Downey Jr is at playing Stark.

He is the best Bruce Wayne/Batman in every aspect. He's exactly the type of interpretation this new DCU needs to succeed long into the future for a plethora of films and I can't wait to see what else the DCU has planned for him.

He also is the most badass and lethal Batman we have seen thus far and nailed the duality of the character better than any of the other previous actors to don the cape and cowl.

Loved Anne Hathaway in the role, I figured she would be awesome as Catwoman. You're right though, she more plays Selina Kyle as a cat burglar.

This is one that I called a long time before it was announced. I didn't care that he had already Johnny Storm, mainly because he was about the only thing entertaining about those movies. Really at the end of the day for those movies aren't terrible, they were just instantly forgettable. I remember watching Sunshine and one scene in particular hit me that he would be great as Captain America. I think I even said the exact words "there's your Captain America." and my friend was very adamant that

When Sean Connery was chosen to play Bond, Ian Fleming got a lot of hate mail.
