10 Best Movies with green characters includes 1. The Hulk 2. Shrek 3. Grinch and 7 others. The work done by makeup artists in these movies is praiseworthy.
The characters can follow different behavior to stick their impression on the hearts and minds of the audience, and appearance is one of them. It is easier to recognize the character if it possesses different physical properties than the rest.
Throughout the years, various fictional characters have had the properties mentioned above. However, characters having human-like body structures but different skin tones than usual have become more popular among movie enthusiasts in recent days.
One such types are green characters. Several filming projects have made a green character one of their leads throughout the years and have managed to amass a huge fan base only based on that single character.
The following are movies that have green characters that steer the story forward:
10. The Grinch
The Grinch is one of the most loved fictional characters of all time. It has been around in the minds of pop culture fanatics since 1977 when it was adapted on screen for the first time in the hit tv show Halloween Is Grinch Night.
This character has appeared in several movies and tv series since its on-screen breakthrough. It has been voiced by some legendary actors like Jim Carrey, Benedict Cumberbatch, and others.
The most recent adaption of this character was done in the 2022 comedy horror movie, The Mean One, in which the talented actor David Howard Thornton gave the voice to the character.
All the projects involving the grinch are fabulous on their own. However, the 2018 Christmas fantasy animated movie, The Grinch, stands out among them.
In that movie, we can see the grinch as a lead character, and the storyline focuses on the activities of the grinch and his pet dog who are trying to stop the Christmas celebration in Whoville.
Rango is the lead character of the 2011 action-adventure and comedy animated movie entitled by the same name.
It is a pet chameleon presented in the movie as a fearless cowboy with a clean heart who likes to do action adventures to boast his boss-like capabilities.
The production designer, Mark 'Crash' McCreery, created the character and is mainly responsible for its looks in the movie. However, other individuals like Johny Depp, John Logan, and others have also worked effortlessly in imposing life on the character.
Depp has given the voice to the character in the movie while Logan has co-written the film with Gore Verbinski and James Ward Byrkit. Some of the iconic styles of Rango are his cowboy attitude and calmness, which he shows whenever an unfavorable situation strikes him.
In the movie, Rango is shown as a chameleon seeking adventures. He meets an accident and ends up in a village called Dirt, where the problem of fresh drinking water is prominent.
Besides that, the town also needs a hero who can help them avoid unfavorable situations, which have become a common thing for the people of that town.
8. The Mask
The Mask is another iconic character who has amazed audiences who grew up watching 90s pop culture. This is considered one of the most iconic green characters ever created because of the actor who has reprised the role of it.
That actor is legendary Jim Carry, who requires no introduction. Jim is one of the rare actors who can turn the course of the movie single-handedly.
This movie is also not an exception, and for the benefit of the fans, Jim was at the peak of his acting career while this movie was developing. For that reason, we can witness one of the best performances ever produced by the legendary actor.
The movie is a superhero comedy directed by Chuch Russell in 1994. It was a global hit, all thanks to the cast's extraordinary performance and the crew members' brilliant efforts.
In the movie, Jim Carry is in the lead as The Mask, an ordinary man at the beginning, but as the story moves forward, he discovers a green mask that signifies the Norse god of mischief, Loki.
That mask makes his face green and turns him into the cartoon character that perfectly describes his inner self. The story later revolves around the activities of The Mask and creates lots of chuckling moments in between for the audience.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise is one of the most loved franchises, which has been among comic book and movie enthusiasts since 1984. It was initially created as a comic book by the USA-based Mirage Studios.
It consists of four lead green characters, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, who are trained to be stealth ninja warriors by their master, Splinter, inside the city's drainage system.
The concept was new, and the interactions between the characters were fresh for the audience, making it an instant hit.
Since its creation, several movies, tv-series and comic book adaptions of these iconic characters have been made.
However, the 2007 animated movie, TMNT, has impacted audiences at a new level. The comic book's first animated adaptation featured legendary actors like Chris Evans, Sir Patrick Stewart, and others.
These actors only voiced the characters, but that was enough for them to add a touch of brilliance to these characters. Before and after the movie, there were other adaptations and reboots of these iconic characters, but this animated movie stands above all.
It has received a 6.2 IMDb rating out of 10 with more than 66 thousand votes. The movie can be enjoyed via the official CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs released in 2009 to celebrate the franchise's 25th anniversary.
6. Spider-Man: No Way Home
Spiderman is one of the most loved comic book characters ever, and it has been made iconic by the combined effects of other associated characters.
It consists of various brilliant characters in positive and negative roles, and one such character is Green Goblin. He is one of the main villains of the spiderman franchise and is also a part of sinister six, an antagonist group of the Spiderman universe.
This character has appeared in several movies, tv-series and video games related to spiderman, but its appearance in the 2021 superhero movie Spider-Man: No Way Home turned out to be the most loved one.
This movie featured the return of two previous spidermen, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, to team up with spiderman, played by Tom Holland.
With the return of spiderman, their villains also had to make a return, and William Defoe's Green Goblin was one of them.
Defoe has appeared in three other spiderman movie projects, but fans loved his appearance in this movie as it was a nostalgic feeling for the fans to relieve the character which he had last played in 2007.
The movie is rated 8.2 out of 10 by the users of IMDb, and it is available on Netflix's streaming platform.
5. Muppets Most Wanted
Muppets Most Wanted is one of many filming projects that involve the legendary character Kermit the Frog. Kermit was created in 1955 by the American animator and cartoonist Jim Henson. Since then, it has heavily been featured in 47 different filming projects.
Out of that heavy list, one movie was extremely loved by the fans, which is the 2014 adventure comedy movie Muppets Most Wanted. It has 6.4 IMDb ratings, and fans and critics have finalized more than 30 thousand votes.
The move was a worldwide success as it earned $80 million worldwide and still makes money for the good characters' owners with various merchandise and media rights.
Steve Whitmire is behind the character's voice and has been doing this for a while now. We cannot imagine any other person doing it as it has a high risk of letting down the audience.
Steve first reprised the voice of the form in 1992 with The Muppet Christmas Carol, and since that, he has done a fabulous job in every other project in that he has appeared as the voice artist of Kermit the Frog.
The movie can be enjoyed via the streaming services Disney, Amazon, or Vudu.

Those people are Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and Drax. Out of these four, the character of Gamora is green in appearance, making her stand out from the rest.
Talented actress Zoe Salanda has reprised the role of Gamora in this movie, and she has done a fabulous job, as always.
Apart from this movie, Zoe can be seen in the characters in other MCU movies, but the users prefer this version of Gamora more than others as Gamora was going to be seen in the live-action form for the first time with this movie.

Many characters are associated with Star Wars and have unique capabilities, making each gain a massive fanbase across generations.
However, one character stands above all for its peculiar appearance and god-like capabilities. It is none other than Yoda, the Jedi Master, more robust than most in his connection with the Force.
Yoda is more diminutive in size and nothing like an average human, but his fighting skills and problem-solving capabilities also don't match an ordinary human.
The Jedi master was first featured in Star Wars: The Empire, and the introduction was such badass that he conquered the hearts of every sci-fi movie fan.
