Top 10 Hottest Actresses to Play Comic Book Characters
Girl power represent, right? Arguably, comic books just wouldn’t be as popular without the beautiful and powerful women that are in them.
These actresses have a lot to live up to when it comes to playing powerful superheroines and supervillains on screen – they have to look the part with a body that is fit and toned and have a powerful on-screen presence. It is not an easy feat.
Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t, but even when it doesn’t, these actresses still always look good. We can’t complain about that, right?
So, who exactly has been cast to bring to life some of comic book’s sexiest characters? Take a look for yourself.
10. Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde
It made sense for Ellen Page to be cast as Marvel’s Kitty Pryde, a super smart superhero who is basically a genius in the realm of computer science, with strong fighting skills and the ability to walk through walls.
Page first portrayed Kitty Pryde in 2006’s X Men: The Last Stand. Page initially said no to the role because she wasn’t ready to jump into the world of Hollywood blockbusters, but after reading the script, she changed her mind.
We are glad she did because a lot of people have a thing for Page and were happy to see her in the role.
9. Blake Lively as Carol Ferris
Blake Lively most recently portrayed DC Comics’s Carol Ferris in 2011’s Green Lantern.She looked particularly hot in the role, which is probably why she managed to snag Ryan Reynolds for good.
We can overlook the fact that the film didn’t fare well among the critics with a pretty face like Blake Lively in one of the lead roles.
8. Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl
Tons of men had crushes on Alicia Silverstone back in the day. Although she was a little “clueless” when it came to her role as Batgirl in 1997’s Batman and Robin, she certainly pulled off her tight black suit quite well.
We can’t be too hard on Silverstone given that, although she was considered a bad casting choice, everyone else in the film was as well.
