10 Major Hollywood Actors Who Played Multiple Comic Book Characters, Including Ben Affleck and Chris Evans

Michelle Pfeiffer (Selina Kyle – Batman Returns, Janet Van Dyne, Ant-Man and the Wasp)

Last, but certainly not least, is Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman in the highly underrated Batman Returns. With her catlike movements and fantastic acting, she probably pulls off the anti-heroine better than any other actress who’s played the role.

So, it was an absolute pleasure to see her return to the comic universe, but this time as Janet van Dyne, a.k.a., the first Wasp (Evangeline Lilly plays the second such hero). While we never really get to see her suit up, you can just feel the legacy throughout with her portrayal. A crucial character played by a crucial actress. More, please!

There are other actors I could have mentioned in this article (Idris Elba is in both the Thor series and Ghost Rider: Spirt of Vengeance), but I thought I’d stick with these 10 recognizable cases. Out of all of them, which one do you think plays the best comic book character? Sound off in the comments section or the poll below!

How Jared Leto Feels About Playing The Joker Again In Zack Snyder’s Justice League

We think we know what The Joker’s role in the movie will be, but we will keep it secret for fear of possibly spoiling what could be an awesome scene if Zack Snyder pulls it off. The director has plenty of time. He teased fans over the weekend that the cut of Justice League that he’s bringing to HBO Max in March will run four hours, meaning he was able to work in SO MUCH material that fans haven’t seen. Also, the 2017 release that went to theaters was reshot, with somewhere in the vicinity of 80-90% of the footage reworked by replacement director Joss Whedon. This version will be a whole new, and much longer, Justice League.

Wait, Is Matt Damon Coming Back For Thor: Love And Thunder?

We don’t actually know his character’s name because Matt Damon was uncredited in the 2017 movie, but evidently he is one of the great Asgardian thespians. He only had one scene in Thor: Ragnarok, which featured him playing Loki in a staged performance of the events of Thor: The Dark World , including the God of Mischief’s big “death” scene (with Chris Hemsworth’s brother, Luke Hemsworth, playing Fake Thor). We didn’t see what happened to the actor during the attack by Hela and the destruction of Asgard by Surtur, but if he is showing up in Thor: Love And Thunder we can probably assume that he managed to not only make it to the lifeboat, but also then make it to an escape pod during the Thanos attack that played out right before the start of the action in Avengers: Infinity War.

As James Earl Jones Turns 90, The Wire’s Wendell Pierce Pays Tribute To His Mentor

The legacy of James Earl Jones is one that would be difficult to match. If you don’t know his face, you should know his name, and if you don’t know his name (for shame!), you definitely know his voice. Jones is the voice of arguably the most recognized (fictional) bad guy through his vocal role as Darth Vader. And for all of you Disney fans, he also voices the OG Lion King himself, Mufasa. He’s held both these titles in various forms for years now, with him reprising his Disney character back in 2019 for the remake. He has a more than impressive resume and, with his role in the upcoming Coming 2 America, it doesn’t look like James Earl Jones is slowing down.

Red Notice: 7 Quick Things We Know About Dwayne Johnson’s Netflix Blockbuster

The Budget Is Estimated To Be Nearly $200 Million, Making Red Notice One Of Netflix’s Biggest Blockbusters Yet

In recent years, Netflix has been working its way into the blockbuster game.

Now, they’ve got Red Notice, which will be a major undertaking for the world-famous streaming service.

10 Movies To Watch On Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Boycott

Clark Johnson directs this HBO Film about a younger Dr. King, played by Jeffrey Wright. If you’re going to do an MLK marathon (I mean, I know nobody does that, but why not start today?), then I would start with Boycott, move on to All The Way, and then conclude with Selma. Terrence Howard also stars as Baptist Minister and Civil Rights Activist, Ralph Abernathy.

Like the title suggests, the film concerns the famous bus boycott of 1955-1956 that had Rosa Parks at the center of it. In the film, Dr. King takes up the case and it’s basically him against the world. But he doesn’t march alone, of course, and this is a story of that fight. It’s interesting to see a young Dr. King at work, and Jeffrey Wright plays the role considerably well. And here’s a fun fact. A young Carmen Ejogo plays Coretta Scott King in this movie, and also plays an older Coretta Scott King in Selma. That’s right, people! This is the real MCU (The Martin Cinematic Universe). Okay, I’ll see myself out.
