    Default Is Brie Larson the first Oscar-winning actor to lead a well-received...

    ...superhero movie AFTER winning their first Oscar?

    I know Halle Berry played Catwoman after winning her Oscar but that movie was shit. And Christian Bale played Batman but BEFORE he won his Oscar.

    So is Brie the first?

    If you don't count Gene Hackman or Jack Nicholson, both of whom were billed above the actor playing the superhero.

    Of course I don't count them. Lead a superhero movie means play the lead superhero.

    AP as Rogue in X-Men she was definitely a major character and was an Oscar Winner.

    Nah, she wasn't a lead in that, really. Hugh Jackman was the lead.

    I'd argue they were equal.

    Jack was legit billed as the lead and was marketed more than Keaton. He also got a percent

    this seems a little arbitrary but if you lay out the criteria like this I guess
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    Does Ben Affleck count? I mean he did win for Good Will Hunting but as a writer.

    "The Dark Knight Rises" was released after Bale won the Oscar for "The Fighter".

    Eh, nah. I meant Oscar-winning actors who'd won Oscars for their acting.
