10 Oscar winners who would make good superheroes or supervillains
Let's face it: Adrien Brody's career hasn't exactly been on fire the last few years. Since becoming the youngest person ever to win the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Roman Polanski's "The Pianist" back in 2003, his filmography has been undeniably spotty. His stumbling career could really use a superhero franchise right about now, and at 39 it's certainly still possible - after all, Robert Downey Jr. was already 43 years old when the first "Iron Man" hit theaters. The question is, which character is the right fit for him? While he's not necessarily a traditional action hero type - though he did acquit himself well in the Nimrod Antal-directed "Predators" - he's already been rumored as a possibility for the role of Mr. Fantastic in Fox's brewing reboot of "Fantastic Four," and with his long-limbed frame we can't say it's a bad idea. Previous talk has also surrounded the potential of him starring in Edgar Wright's solo "Ant-Man" effort, and with that film already slated for release in 2015, sounds like it's time for his reps to get on the phone and start pushing.
