Sir Ian McKellan – Magneto

2. Sir Ian McKellan – Magneto

10 of 11

Who better to bring the champion villain of the Marvel universe to the screen than Sir Ian McKellan? McKellan’s Magneto is a sympathetic villain who survived Nazi concentration camps solely due to his incredible mutation. The way Sir Ian flicks his wrist to manipulate metal is nothing short of fluid and natural, as if he truly believes he can break Wolverine’s skeleton or move the Golden Gate Bridge.
