How so?

See, that's the thing; I didn't want to say McKellen isn't good or anything. As are many of the actors cast in the villain roles for superhero movies. I can't remember the last time I was disappointed when I heard an actor being cast in a certain role. Jack Nicholson, Jeff Bridges, William Hurt, Alfred Molina, Tim Roth, Hugo Weaving, Guy Pierce, Ben Kingsley, Heath Ledger, Tom Hardy, Liam Neeson, Michael Shannon, Tom Hiddleston, Kevin Bacon, Sam Rockwell, Mickey Rourke... The list can go on and on. These are all great actors! Even ****ties superhero movies often cast huge actors for their villains.

But I'd lie if I say that it doesn't make me disappointed to see a Studio cast a big actor for a great role that's not written well or not done justice. Vanko in IM2 is the perfect example of that. I was so excited when I heard Rourke was cast in the role, and I loved how he sounded and looked, and couldn't wait to see the villain on screen, but I was disappointed. Same with Ben Kingsley's Mandarin. I hate seeing so much potential get thrown away through the window. It's like a bad joke.
