most superhero films up until recently had unknown or not very recognisable actors in the lead role and bigger names in the supporting cast to draw in the public.
Superman had christopher reeves and then big names like Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman
Batman had Micheal Keaton and then Jack Nicholson as the big name.
