It feels like superhero movies are taking over the world these days, with more and more of them being released every year. This has led to us seeing hundreds of superhero movie characters appearing on the big screen over the years, with some of them standing out more than others. We are bringing you our Top 10 Superhero Movie Characters, starting with number 10 today.
At number 10, we have decided that the X-Men character Charles Xavier deserves a mention, not only because he is a great comic book character but also because he has been brought to the big screen in a very good way. While some of the younger ones among you will best know James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, it is Patrick Stewart who made the character a huge success.
The relationship that Patrick Stewart, as Charles Xavier, and Ian McKellen, as Magneto, have developed on the big screen, in the X-Men movies has been fantastic, with the two showing a warm friendship and respect for one another, despite the fact that they tend to be on opposite sides. This has led to these two being among the most loved characters in the X-Men movies.
Over the course of the X-Men franchise, Patrick Stewart has given us some great performances as Charles Xavier, mixing his patience and wisdom with his steely resolve. While James McAvoy has now taken over the mantel of playing Charles Xavier, it will always be Patrick Stewart who we regard as the real Professor X.
