18 Actors Who Were Innitially Selected For Favorite Superheroes Roles

Now we think that no one can replace Robert Downey for the portrayal of Iron Man, or Chris Evens for the portrayal of Captain America,… It’s because these Hollywood stars have been so synonymous with their roles that it becomes impossible to separate the actor from the character they’re playing.

Moreover, these roles have marked an important milestone in these actors’ acting careers and made them global stars. For example, Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), get five Oscar nominations for their roles. However, the reality is that some of them weren’t the production team’s first choices. Many reasons are given for the changes in the cast at the last minute.

But who was initially chosen for these important superheroes? Here is a look at 16 important actors who almost played superheroes.
