  • So certain actors have been multiple comic heroes or portrayed in comic movies. Now some have been in different universes or titles but this is a quick shot of a list of some of those:


    Ryan Reynolds (mentioned in one of my other posts): Deadpool, Hannibal King (Blade Trinity), Green Lantern
    Ben Foster: Angel (X-Men 3), Dave (The Punisher), The Stranger (30 Days of Night)
    Chris Evans: Captain America, Human Torch, Casey (voice in TMNT), Jensen (The Losers), Lucas Lee (Scott Pilgrim), Curtis (Snowpiercer)
    Rebecca Romjin: Joan (Punisher) Mystique (X-men)
    Josh Brolin: Thanos, Cable, Dwight (Sin City: Dame to Kill For), Young Agent K (MIB 3), Jonah Hex
    Sylvester Stallone: Judge Dredd, Stakar Ogord (Guardians 2)

    And I am sure there are many more...

  • Ben Affleck played Daredevil and now Batman.

    Honestly this all shows how lazy casting directors can be. There is so much great talent out there if they really searched for it. I don't care if a well known actor is in a movie. I would much rather have someone unknown who acts well.

    You couldn't have said that better. A star's drawing power does not equal the character.
    People want to know. How can I live like this? The risks? The times I've descended into madness? The times I've died? How can I live like this? How could I live any other way?

  • Yeah "We" don't need star power to go see a comic book character based movie...but the other 7 billion people in the world that don't know jack about the comics do.

    I remember reading that Affleck said he will never play another superhero after Daredevil. He said that playing a costumed superhero was humiliating. Then he goes plays George Reeves and is wearing the Superman costume and now Batman. I wish he would have stuck to his words. He's a tool.

  • Funny that Idris Elba was mentioned because I finally got around to watching Thor Ragnarok just the other day and was actually going to add him to this list. There is also Ray Stevenson in Punisher: War Zone as well as Volstagg in the Thor movies. Also Karl Urban in Thor Ragnarok as Skurge and he was also Dredd.
