How 15 Actors From Our Favorite Marvel Movies Have Changed For Decades

Time flies so relentlessly that we might not notice it was 17 years since the first release of the Fantastic Four and 14 years for Iron Man. We all remembered how we were stunned by these characters and actors themself in the first Marvel movies. Some actors actually rose to their stardom thanks to their roles in MCU, some are considered to stick with their iconic roles for the rest of their acting careers. It’s no doubt that some die-hard fans are willing to rewatch these movies thousands of times in order to show their loyalty.

For that reason, fans never turn their back on their favorite actors whether they lose their charm or not. So if these actors have changed their looks that are unrecognizable, they will be gorgeous as ever. From “Hulk Mark” Ruffalo to “Iron Man” Robert Downey Jr., it’s long enough to put them in a then-and-now comparison. Some people might not feel that long, and I can’t also believe it, but some of their appearances actually have changed a lot for about 2 decades. Repeatedly, 2 decades! How was that fast?

Today, we have compiled a list of 15 actors from our favorite Marvel movies who have incredibly changed for years. Scroll down and check them out!
