Summer is set to heat up with the first superhero film of the season, 'Iron Man 3', all set to hit theatres this weekend! While Hollywood has some of the best crusaders in town, we think a desi twist will make these heroes our own. So which Bollywood actor would you choose to play your favourite superhero? We've got a couple of ideas...
Iron Man - Shah Rukh Khan
With minor modifications to the G.One suit, SRK could become Iron Man overnight. Snarky quips come just as easy to King Khan, and he's also got the money and charm to give Tony Stark some tough competition

Batman - John Abraham
He's smokin' hot and would look fabulous in black. John Abraham would feel right at home on a BatPod and definitely fits the bill of a vigilante who saves the world by night, and is a reckless playboy by day! Right, Bipasha?
Robin - Tusshar Kapoor
Tusshar has the most experience playing a sidekick! When was the last time he had a solo hit? He's perfect 'Robin' material!
Hulk - Salman Khan
This is a no-brainer since his temper's always on a low simmer. Though he seems withdrawn, he's capable of overwhelming emotion. But mostly, just like the 'Hulk Smash', our 'Dabangg' star can pack a wallop of a punch!
The Human Torch - Ranbir Kapoor
No rocket science, this. The ladies' man has flamed his way into the hearts of many a B-town babe (ask Sonam, Deepika, Katrina) and flies out in a flash! But unlike the superhero who defies the laws of physics, the Kapoor boy's forte is creating chemistry with just a smile!
Thor - Hrithik Roshan
The 'Agneepath' star with his Greek good looks and flowing mane would be perfect, if you placed a hammer in his hand! He's already had heaps of practice with stunts in 'Krrish', and he's a shoo-in to play the God of power, lightening and yes, fertility *nudge nudge wink wink*
Spider-Man - Shahid Kapoor
He's had experience playing the shy, awkward boy-next-door and his moves on the dance floor could match Spiderman's lightning-paced movement. Suit, please!
Superman - Sunny Deol
Sunny Deol's 'dhaai kilo ka haath' could certainly hold its own in an arm wrestling match with the Man of Steel - Superman. The extremely moral and patriotic side of Superman is also similar to the kind of desi fervour Sunny Paaji projects in his roles (think Gadar: Ek Prem Katha). It's a match, folks!
Nick Fury - Nana Patekar
Nana has already mastered the brooding stare, and like Nick Fury, seems ageless no matter how old he grows. His nearly-bald pate almost resembles Morgan Freeman's too and we think Nana is a perfect fit, and would even be able to carry off that eye patch without looking ridiculous.
Wonder Woman - Kareena Kapoor
Just like the most popular female superhero of all time, Kareena Kapoor is the reigning queen of Bollywood with most hit films in her kitty. Wonder Woman is known to use lethal force whenever necessary and Bebo's been known to unleash verbal barbs whenever challenged. With bulletproof bracelets and the Lasso of Truth, Kareena as Wonder woman could take on the world, and how!
Black Widow - Sunny Leone
Sunny Leone could certainly be an assassin seeing how easily men fall at her feet! Black Widow has a history with the dark side, which plays out perfectly as we dig into Sunny's past, albeit in a different vein!
Catwoman - Priyanka Chopra
This 'Junglee Billi' is our hot favourite as the femme fatale. Her stint on 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' means that she already has some practice with daredevilry. But most importantly, PC would look devastatingly hot in a black leather suit!
