10 Actors Who Became Unrecognizable to Play a Marvel Villain

When it comes to casting actors for superhero films, the directors make sure to rope in the right actors who will do justice to the characters, which in a way ensures that they won’t end up disappointing the fans of the franchise. This also creates a lot of pressure for the actors who are cast for the role of a superhero or a villain. They obviously want to outperform and be remembered in history for playing the iconic role – be it a superhero or villain. While aiming for this, many actors look out for roles that give them an opportunity to get out of their comfort zone and do something that is completely different and unexpected. To make these roles look and feel believable, actors go through extreme lengths to completely get into character. They start with basic research and then they move on to get acquainted with the character. They even play with their accents and mannerisms to achieve perfection. In short, playing a superhero/villain is definitely not a cakewalk.

So to remind you of that, we have got a list of actors who became unrecognizable to show us their evil side by playing a Marvel villain. Scroll down to find out!

1. Red Skull (Captain America) – Hugo Weaving

Audiences Hail Karnan As A Masterpiece In Tamil Cinema

It’s finally here! ‘Karnan‘ starring Dhanush and directed by Mari Selvaraj has hit the theatres today. Touted to be one of biggest social dramas of the year, the film has been gaining much hype with its poster releases, music videos and the powerful trailer. Karnan also stars Malayalam actor Rajisha Vijaya who makes her Tamil debut with this film, alongside other actors such as Lakshmipriya Chandramouli, Gouri Kishen, Lal, and Yogi Babu in important roles. The cinematography has been handled by Theni Easwaran. Mari Selvaraj gained huge prominence for his grating caste drama ‘Pariyerum Perumal‘ which stunned audiences and critics for its open narration of the horror of the caste divide in society. This time around, the director once again sets the story in the rural milieu with Dhanush playing the titular role and a saviour-like figure of the masses. The audiences have spoken and the reviews are nothing short of stupendous.
