Most Marvel Actors Are Too Short To Be Superheroes

Marvel brings their comic books to life by casting the best-of-the-best actors to portray their superheroes. The directors usually hit the nail on the head, but how accurately do the actors fit the stats of their character according to the comics?

Fandom.com’s Marvel Wiki informs us that each superhero has a specific height, weight and age.

We found out that most actors are shorter than Marvel Comic Books’ height.

Marvel’s Wolverine stands at a surprisingly petite 5’3 in the comics, while Hugh Jackman is an over-average height for a male at 6’2.

The biggest difference is of course The Hulk, with the super-strength superhero stacking up at massive 8’4, while Mark Ruffalo is well under six foot at 5’8.

Non-movers are Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther at 6′ and Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool at 6’2.
