These 21 Marvel actors were turned into women and now we want more heroines

These 21 Marvel actors were turned into women and now we want more heroines

It may come as a surprise to you, but it's been a whole ten years since the Marvel Cinematic Universe was kicked off with the blockbuster Iron Man in 2008. With A-list stars such as Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans to entice moviegoers into buying a ticket, the movies had a sure shot of success and the most dedicated of fans have now stuck with them for a decade.

While there's no denying that Marvel has found success on the silver screen, that's certainly not to say their heroes have been absent from our television screens, either. Characters like the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Defenders, the Punisher Daredevil, Runaways, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and others have also managed to score success on the small screen too.

Aside from the typical superhero conventions such as fighting crime and having a dedicated sidekick, pretty much every story in this genre is about transformation. Marvel characters are a primary example of this, showcasing how ordinary people can turn into heroes with supernatural abilities - and it's this relatability which makes them so appealing.

With modern technology, fans can build on this idea of transformation. And indeed they have - using FaceApp, people are using images of male actors from the Marvel movies (including both those from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the X-Men franchise) and turning them into women. And let me tell you, these digital transformations look absolutely fantastic.

Take a look for yourselves and decide which transformation is your favorite...
