From Marvel To DC: Actors Who Have Crossed The Superhero Divide
Superhero movies have been a staple of Hollywood for many years, and two of the biggest players in the genre are Marvel and DC Comics. While these two companies are often seen as rivals, there have been several actors who have crossed over from one universe to the other. Here are three actors who have played both Marvel and DC Comics characters.
Ryan Reynolds is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Deadpool in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he also played the lead role in 2011’s Green Lantern, which is based on the DC Comics character of the same name.
While Green Lantern was not a critical or commercial success, Reynolds has been praised for his performance as Deadpool, which has become one of the most beloved characters in the MCU.
Ben Affleck is another actor who has played both Marvel and DC Comics characters. In 2003, he starred as Daredevil in the movie of the same name, which is based on the Marvel Comics character.
Then, in 2016, he donned the cape and cowl to play Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, which are part of the DC Extended Universe.
Michael Keaton played the iconic role of Batman in the 1989 movie of the same name, as well as its 1992 sequel, Batman Returns. However, in 2017, he made a surprise appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Adrian Toomes/Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
