There is something special about how Marvel Studios casts characters. Many of the actors are perfect for the roles they are picked for.

Casting is a big reason why Marvel movies do so well. They consider everything to make their movies perfect. There I go again, gushing about Marvel. Sorry, I will just get to the point about Marvel characters.

Every time they announce new Marvel characters, I get super excited because I can feel the similarities in the comic characters and the actors. And even though a Marvel Phase just ended, I can’t wait to see what the studio will do with the upcoming Marvel characters.

Now, about the ones we already know and love, here are five Marvel characters that were perfectly cast.

#1 Marvel Character Thor Played By Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth was the right man to play the role of Marvel superhero character Thor Odinson. Hemsworth was perfect as Thor. He had the build, the blonde hair, and the charisma of Marvel’s Norse god of thunder.

#2 Marvel Character Dr Strange Played By Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch was the ideal candidate for Marvel’s superhero character, Dr Strange. Even before the movie came out in 2016 and they announced him as Dr Strange, I could see it. I don’t think someone else could have put on Dr Strange’s red cloak with the dramatic and charismatic flare Cumberbatch uses. Putting on the cloak is a very important skill if you think about it.

#3 Marvel Character Iron Man By Robert Downey Jr

I take every opportunity to gush about Robert Downey Jr, and this is one of those moments. Marvel has a thing for casting actors similar to the characters they play, and Robert Downey Jr was perfect for his role as Marvel’s Iron Man. He possesses the same natural charm Tony Stark has, and they both look good in suits or a suit of armor.

#4 Marvel Character Nick Fury Played By Samuel L. Jackson.

For some weird reason, I see Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in every other role he plays. Well, except for his role in Kingsman. The Nick Fury character in the 2002 Marvel Avengers comics was actually based on Samuel L. Jackson, so I think it is fair for me to see him as Nick Fury sometimes. Jackson’s casting as Fury was no surprise since the character was based on him in the comics.

#5 Marvel Character Loki Played By Tom Hiddleston.

It almost seems like the role of Marvel’s character Loki was written for Tom Hiddleston, just like Nick Fury was based on Samuel L. Jackson’s likeness. The evil smiles Hiddleston gives and how good he looks in Loki costumes are everything. Marvel could not have cast the amazing villainous character better.

Marvel does a great job casting actors to play characters in the Marvel universe. I can’t wait to see what the new actors in the upcoming movies will bring to the table.
