Twitter released its list of top 10 actors worldwide of 2019, and we don’t know if we should be surprised at the fact that six of those 10, play Marvel characters and five of the six Marvel characters are in the Avengers Saga. Maybe we shouldn’t be, since Marvel has taken the world by storm and has released hit movie after hit movie. It certainly did top the ratings! In 2019 alone, three movies from the saga were released which probably explains the list being the way it is.
However we are wondering if the list is not a tad too skewed? Does Twitter not remember the other brilliant performances by so many actors throughout the year? For starters, Joaquin Phoenix in Joker, the flawless depiction of Arthur Fleck’s pain left audiences in a trance. Will Smith as the Genie in Aladdin was quirky on a whole new level. Next we have to talk about how Daisy Ridley’s STAR performance in Star Wars, her character manifested a 360-degree change of emotions and how she made the shift seem so effortless was a stunner! And finally Masie Williams as Arya Stark in GOT – how she finally killed the Night King. And finally, we haven’t even mentioned Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow. These were some of the top performances by actors we saw in 2019, unfortunately this didn’t get them on the top 10 list, listed below are the ones who did
1. Tom Holland
Tom Holland is #1 on the list, why? Probably because of his boyish charm and his attachment to Robert Downey Jr. in the Avengers saga. It could also be because of his new role as Spider-man in latest marvel movie he starred in, Spider-man: Far From Home.
2. Chris Evans
Chris Evans being #2 on the list, also starred in the Marvel movie Avengers: Endgame in 2019, his career started picking up when he played the Human Torch in the Fantastic-Four movie in 2007, and he’s never looked back since then.
Zendaya is perhaps one of the most loved actresses out there, she has a very bubbly personality and we can’t get enough of her. No wonder she made it to the top 10 cut. She too was in a Marvel movie this year, starring with Tom Holland, she was the lead female in Spider-man: Far From Home
