15 Actors Whose Careers Were Destroyed (Or Saved) By Superhero Movies

Hollywood has now become home to a relatively new but well-known phenomenon – superhero fiction. Starting with Batman in 1989 and the X-Men movies of the early 2000s, the superhero genre has introduced us to the wonderful world of the DCEU and the MCU. Many movies have come under this banner a lot of actors have essayed roles in these movies. While some will be always remembered for their work, others will always be asked – WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?!?

Chris Pratt

Before he landed the role of Star-Lord in the MCU’s wildly successful Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, Pratt was a relative nobody in H-Town. He always portrayed a side character or had a guest appearance until GOTG happened.

Robert Downey Jr.
