The universes of Marvel and DC manage to attract all types of fans, from those who love a comic book to those who prefer to just watch the series or movies. Therefore, most actors who recognize the value of productions really want to participate in some title.
Some big names in the industry like Angelina Jolie, Harry Styles, Robert Pattinson and more have already had the honor of debuting in Marvel and DC movies. Some are even luckier and manage to get two productions, one from each universe.
remember 9 actors that were once from Marvel and DC!
1. Ben Affleck
Before the series starring Charlie Cox, Ben Affleck was Daredevil, in a film that tells the story of the Marvel hero, released in 2003. The actor was also Batman in DC feature films, such as “Batman v Superman” and “Lega of Justice”, but never made a solo film about the misunderstood vigilante.
2. Ryan Reynolds
It is impossible to talk about Ryan Reynolds and not think about “Deadpool”, the actor has already played the hero in two films produced by the Marvel studio, becoming one of his biggest roles. But, back in 2011, Blake Lively’s husband also played the Green Lantern – a long, inclusive, which features his wife.
3. Jared Leto
Jared Leto was one of the great actors cast in “Suicide Squad”, released in 2016. In the film, he plays an atypical version of the antagonist Joker – which did not please the public so much. To “redeem” himself with superhero fans, Jared Leto has already gone after a new role, being the protagonist of Marvel’s “Morbius”, released in 2022.
4. Tom Hardy
Well known to Marvel fans as Venom – playing the character in films like “Venom” and “Venom: Time for Carnage” – Tom Hardy also participated in the DC feature, “Batman: The Dark Knight Rises”, 2012. In the film with Christian Bale, the actor was the antagonist Bane.
5. Christian Bale
Speaking of Christian Bale, the actor who became known for his iconic role as the Batman also walked between the two studios. Bale has played Batman in three films, released in 2005, 2008 and 2012, but he will also play the villainous Gorr in the new movie, “Thor: Love and Thunder”, due for release on July 7.
6. Zoë Kravitz
Alongside Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz landed the role of Catwoman in the new Batman movie. But in addition to the dark film about the classic DC hero, the actress also played a small role in “X-Men: First Class” as Angel in 2011. Glad she has gained more prominence over the years!
7. Halle Berry
Who participated in the DC cinematic universe was Halle Berry, who also played Catwoman, in a feature about the heroine, released in 2004. The film was not very successful, but the actress had already made history as the mutant Storm, in the sagas from “X-Men”. Definitely one of her coolest roles!
8. Michael Keaton
In recent years, Michael Keaton has starred as the Vulture, created by Marvel. In addition to being a character in the “Spider-Man” universe, the actor also returned in the latest release, “Morbius”. However, one of the most important films of Keaton’s career was as Batman, back in the 80s. Michael even returns to the role in the “Flash” movie, scheduled for 2023.
9. Michelle Pfeiffer
Finally, Michelle Pfeiffer is also an example of an actress who has walked through both universes. In addition to playing Wasp, in the MCU film, “Ant-Man and the Wasp”, the blonde was Catwoman, in the 90’s, in a version that became super famous in the history of DC Comics.
