I've said this before and I'll say it again. When casting for a superhero film, cast an talented up and comer who is comfortable behind a mask for the majority of a film and can act with their voice. They're out there.
Hardly an 'up-and-comer', but to this day I remain impressed with the nuanced performance Hugo Weaving delivered as V (in 'V for Vendetta', of course) with only voice and gestures. But then, I've always thought Weaving has a great voice.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
Trent, that's an amazing example. Here's another example, even though he's not a masked superhero: Anthony Daniel's C-3PO. Even though he was portraying a machine, every emotion he had was expressed solely through his body movements (it helped that he had a career as a mime) and his VOICE. But if people think that unmasked and unmasking heroes is the way to go, I have four words for them: Albert Pyun's Captain America.

'Nuff said.
