Signature actors

Discuss actors who’ve made a role or character part of their lives and, despite the inevitable aging and death, will usually always keep their role and be commemorated for it, and if they’re to be replaced the role, vocal or physical, cannot be maintained quite like the old times

or y’know, people you associate with a character, remake or original

This, so much. I mean, he literally is Tony Stark. Like, he was born to play him. I have made a silent vow not to watch any Iron Man movie that doesn’t have him in it (unless they go the route of killing him/having him retire and give the suit to someone else). No one else can play Tony Stark.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier also fit, IMO.

OMG, I totally forgot this one. It eclipses all others. Thank goodness he’s coming back for Rogue One!

Robin was Genie for a single movie.

Mark Hamil was the Joker for like, almost every animated version of him since TAM.

I think he’s the winner.
