Over the last several years, Marvel has swiftly blessed us with an endless roster of superhero movies. And while it can be a little overwhelming to keep track of all the amazing films, we’ve certainly enjoyed the eye candy performances of some of our favorite leading men through every Marvel film.


From Captain America to Black Panther, it doesn’t look like we’ll be running out of swoon-worthy superheroes anytime soon (which is totally fine by us). Of course, it’s no secret that these actors have all gone through some pretty intense training to get in peak superhero shape, but it’s pretty impressive to see what they looked like before being cast in their iconic roles vs. after! Check it out…
