There's a study in contrasts here. Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man screentest is on the wordy side, while Tobey Maguire's Spidey taster is far more action-orientated. Listen out for some of the loudest and clunkiest sound effects ever recorded in the latter, and some remarkably sexual banter in the former. Then there's Christian Bale for Batman Bagins, who screentests with none other than Amy Adams to prove his Bat-mettle (after Man Of Steel, it's clear now that she's a DC girl through and through).
