    Michael Keaton and Christian Bale have been the two very sturdy at being Batman. I want Heath Ledger's Joker, nonetheless it did borrow a good bit from Jack Nicholson's. I want Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka, for me he became into funnier and much less creepy. Kevin area as Lex Luthor. and that's all i think like answering. each and each of the terrific :)

    Batman: Val kilmer and Adam West ( because of his Go-Go dancing)

    Joker : Nicholson and Ledger (both in their own special way were really good)

    Many people as Tarzan: the guy who makes juices.

    Many people as Superman : Christopher Reeve (he's the best by far and away)

    James Bond: Tom Cruise? oh! no, he was a mission impossibler, my bad.

    The Karate Kid: willow smith or daniel san? hmmmm...neither of them had karate skills so let's skip this one.

    Willy Wonka: Johhny Depp.
