10 Oscar winners who need to add a superhero movie to their resume
It's about time these award-winning thesps donned a pair of tights
While some "serious actors" no doubt look down their noses at the prospect of playing a superhero or supervillain in a blockbuster comic-book movie, there are many who just might change their minds if enough money was waved in front of their noses. As paychecks go, it sure beats doing an arthouse film.
And let's not forget that in this post-"Batman Begins" world, the comic-book movie is not what it used to be, with a host of critically-acclaimed, actor-friendly filmmakers including Christopher Nolan, Kenneth Branagh and Michel Gondry bringing an artistic eye to the lucrative sub-genre.
With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to compile a list of ten Oscar-winning actors who have yet to don a pair of tights and suggest characters - either heroes or villains - that might fit their particular set of talents and characteristics. Let us know what you think of our choices - and feel free to suggest some of your own - after checking out the full list in the gallery below.
