The most toxic Marvel and DC superheroes on the big screen on the other side of the cameras
Superheroic characters incarnated by toxic interpreters
When an actor manages to make a comic book superhero his own, either because of his masterful performance, because of his physical resemblance, or for both reasons, it is quite difficult for us viewers to separate the performer from the character. However, we must not stop keeping in mind that, although they have given life to one of our greatest fictional idols, they are still people of flesh and blood, with their virtues and their defects.
On some occasions, the second mentioned factor weighs more than the first, despite the fact that nothing matches the character that has made them famous, and that is the reason why, in this article, we are going to analyze four toxic actors of the current century who, in front of the cameras, have dedicated themselves to saving lives, be it giving life to a heroic character from Marvel or of DC.
Hulk by Edward Norton
We started our list of toxic characters with the version of the emerald colossus that we could see in the movie The incredible Hulk (2008), in which Edward Norton He must have considered that the leading role was not enough for him, which is why he also wanted to work as a screenwriter, since he insisted on filming scenes that did not appear in the original script.
When none of his ideas made it to the final cut, the actor did not want to be a part of promoting the film, which, unsurprisingly, led to his firing and replacement by Mark Ruffalo from the movie The Avengers (2012), as we already discussed at the time.
Flash by Ezra Miller
we jumped from Marvel to DC to talk about this actor, who has played the scarlet speedster in the movies Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad (both in 2016), League of Justice (2017) and Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021), as well as in the eighth episode of the first season of the series The peacemaker (effective since 2022), titled It’s cow or neveralthough he has not yet had the opportunity to shine alone.
Despite the fact that in June of this year he will be the main protagonist of the film Flashit is possible that it also means the end of his career as a superhero, taking advantage of the fact that this film will work as a reboot of the DC Cinematic Universe, since the toxic behaviors, to the point of being criminal, that the actor has been showing in recent years are beginning to take their toll. In fact, a large part of the public has expressed their desire that, after the premiere of his film, he be replaced by Grant Gustinhe Flash television.
Mere by Amber Heard
And if we are talking about toxic interpreters, we cannot fail to mention this actress, who was in charge of giving life to mere in the already mentioned League of Justice and Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguebesides in Aquaman (2018), where he became a co-star. Nevertheless, Amber Heard she has also been a main character off the screens, due to her trial against her husband Johnny Deepwho lost a ton of job offers while facing off against her partner’s false accusations.
When the trial was favorable to the actor, although the damage had already been done, many followers of the films of DC they wanted that Amber taste her own medicine and get fired from aquaman and the lost kingdom (which will be released later this year). Finally, the actress has managed to stay in the film, despite rumors that Emily Clarke I could replace it. However, after the reboot to which the DC Cinematic Universeit is most likely that we will not see it again in said franchise, given the large number of detractors that it has earned.
Captain Marvel by Brie Larson
To finish our review of toxic interpreters we have to return to the characters of The House of Ideas where we find this actress giving life to Carol Danvers in the movies Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame (both from 2019), as well as in the final chapter of the series ms marvel (2020 – 2021), until now, although his return is already confirmed for the end of this year within the film The Marvels.
Initially, the idea of Kevin Feige was that the actress was shown as the most powerful character in the Marvel Cinematic Universein addition to becoming the future leader of The Avengers. However, since it appears that Brie Larson He is someone quite difficult to deal with, he has not fit in well with his co-stars, which justifies the fact that in the aforementioned The Marvelswhich was originally going to be his second film as the main character, the importance of his character will be reduced compared to the kamala khan of Iman Vellani and the Monica Rambeau of Teyonah Parrisif the rumors about it are correct.
