The first two images corresponding to the actor to the left are complete, the last two aren't. Also, all the four images share something in common - something that's missing... Replace the question marks and explain why that's correct.

Note: Don't waste your time looking for movies, tv shows or similar related to the actors. You won't find anything relevant. Find their names and then... the rest is up to you.

    $\begingroup$ "The first two images corresponding to the actor to the left are complete" sounds unclear. Perhaps "The first two images consisting of an actor on the left and a graphic on the right are complete." $\endgroup$ Feb 19, 2023 at 23:23

I think the first question mark is going to be

a group of three lozenges arranged in a roughly heart-shaped formation:

and the second one will be

the head of a trident.

In case these still don't seem all that obvious, the actors are (Thanks, @ed-murphy)

Morgan Freeman, Christopher George, Ben Kingsley, and Jeff Bridges

which, at least if you are a little bit weird, will immediately bring to mind

towns.

In particular, these ones:

Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone,
Georgetown, the capital of Guyana,
Kingstown, the capital of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and
Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados.

(As @Stiv helpfully points out in the comments, the hint in the title is typed in "all capitals", suggesting we're most likely on the right track. The count in the hint also agrees, at least if we ignore the (super hero themed?) legislative capital of South Africa.)

The respective patterns then are the

borders between the colours in the flags of these countries.

Like so:

    $\begingroup$ Well spotted +1 I have a feeling the title may be being delivered in the style of a rot13(GBJA pevre) too, though that may just be my imagination :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Stiv I may not have actually read what the rot13 in your comment says before writing that part of the answer, but now that I have, I really like your take on it. Hope you don't mind the answer misrepresenting the facts, as the truth is still available here :-) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Bass Ha, you know the intended meaning didn't actually strike me at all! But I shall happily play a part in this theatre of mystery... $\endgroup$
