The DC Extended Universe has earned a name for itself in the past years for being the dim gritty films with a dark undertone. But as much as we love comics, fans are quite into the idea of comic book films being made for their entertainment. The most important ingredient to make a film work is the actors performing and getting the comic book heroes to life. In this publish, we have compiled a list of ” Best Acting Performances In The DC Extended Universe Before Justice League”.
Ben Affleck As Batman
There is no other actor in the DC Extended Universe films who is so very much talked about from the 2015 film, Batman V Superman. Ben Affleck totally nailed the part with Bruce Wayne and a much older aggressive version of the Bat Of Gotham.
Certainly, he had a worthy performance and is the most anticipated for the upcoming movies in the DC franchise. Affleck has given one of the best acting performances for Batman to date.
Henry Cavill As Superman
As far as the history of Superman is concerned, there have been many actors to have played Superman but not every series for him have a long-lasting impact. Man Of Steel from Zack Synder open gateways for similar such DC movies and established Henry Cavill as the contemporary Superman we know and want in cinema.
Gal Gadot As Wonder Woman
The 2017’s Wonder Woman has already grossed over 700 million dollars at the box office and continues to won accolades just about when it will also touch the billion-dollar mark at the ticket window, What makes the character so special is that director Patty Jenkins gives us the highest grossing female solo movie ever ( not just highest grossing female superhero film ). Gald Gadot as we have the most impressive one of female actors in modern times to give us a worthy Wonder Woman.
Russell Crowe As Jor-El
The performance of Russell Crowe as Jor-El is also a worthy mention on the list. Jor-El is an important personality on the planet of Krypton and also as the father of Kal-El, the son of the most respectable man on their planet. His role as a sacrificing father and later a guide to Superman is utilized to great effect on screen in the Man Of Steel.
Chris Pine As Steve Trevor
Chris Pine deserves a mention on the list for some obvious reasons ( being a part of critically acclaimed Wonder Woman ). The character of Steve Trevor was a good mix of humor and emotional depth. Chris gives you a performance which was well a match with Gal Gadot in the movie, connecting with the audience. Patty Jenkins also deserves due credit for these acting performances.
Viola Davis As Amanda Waller
Viola Davis makes it to the list among many great actors for she nails the role of Amanda Waller in 2016 Suicide Squad. She just does a great job playing the leader of A.R.G.U.S who would even cross the line of morality to achieve greater good. Amanda Waller is a great intelligent DC character even for future DCEU projects ( and if she messes up with our DC heroes, that would be a treat to watch ).
Margot Robbie As Harley Quinn
There has been barely any character which has got so much media and fan base attention as much as Harley Quinn. The character played by Margot Robbie was most appreciated in the cast of Suicide Squad which was on the contrary a disliked film by the critics. She made the side kick to Joker take a center stage as a menacing Gotham villain.
