Can You Match the Superhero to the Actor Who Played Them?
by Kennita Leon

In 1920, the first superhero film ever hit the movie theaters. It was a silent film, "The Mark of Zorro". By 1949, the first TV superhero entered living rooms across the country, as "The Lone Ranger" and his friend Tonto wandered the Wild West dueling it up with the bad guys. Since then, there have been thousands of new movies and TV shows to entertain millions of people across the world. While the genre of superheroes never faded or died, there has been a mass resurgence in popularity. 

How well do you know your superheroes - or more specifically, how well do you know the actors who play your favorite superheroes? Did Gal Gadot ever play Supergirl? Who was the dad-next-door guy who played Ant-Man? Who played the mighty, hammer-wielding Norse God of Thunder, Thor? From the well-known actors who donned the persona of the Caped Crusader, to the indefatigable Ironman, to the indestructible Superman, and a few lesser-known superheroes able to attract big-name actors into their spandex outfits, all sorts of actors have soared across out screens as superheroes.

It's time to test your mettle and see if you're up for the challenge! You'll need every power you have to get through this quiz!
