20 Actors Who Played Multiple Marvel Characters

For actors, playing different characters is par for the course. It’s in the job description. Most of the time, audiences don’t give it a second thought. Ben Affleck can be both Daredevil and Batman. Of course, it can get a little out of hand at times – we get it, Tim Burton. You love Johnny Depp.

Then again, if an actor works, why not keep them around? Marvel studios loves to re-use actors. It’s done all the time with background actors and stunt people.

There are justifications for extending the practice to more prominent characters. Sometimes the actor wasn’t all that famous the first time, and so they have a chance to reshape their legacy in the Marvel oeuvre. For instance, Michael B. Jordan’s performance as Erik Killmonger in Black Panther has completely eclipsed Johnny Storm in that tragic Fantastic Four remake.

Mind you, there’s a difference between movies based on Marvel characters and titles that exist within the cohesive Marvel Cinematic Universe from Marvel Studios. Sticklers might complain that dual casing creates MCU canon contradictions. Fortunately, most fans don’t seem all that bothered. After all, suspension of disbelieve is a crucial part of enjoying any film or television show, and the comics have a long history of retcons.

Here are 20 Actors Who Played Multiple Marvel Characters.


18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About

Maybe it’s the nature of the business that causes celebrity couples to burn white hot before blinking out of existence and fading from public memory. When you’re a really, really, ridiculously good looking actor, work often requires you to lay your emotions bare to an equally beautiful co-star. It’s understandable that many stars would find themselves unable to keep their paws off of one another in real life after pretending to do so for hours at a time on the job.

At one time, these now-forgotten duos were head-over-heals, and their escapades were the talk of the town. Not every couple on this list met on set, but most have since been in a more high profile or significant relationship. At times, it can feel like high school, with the constant intermingling and swapping. But when you think about it, you have to kiss a lot of super sexy frogs before finding the true love (that you will later divorce). In some cases, even though both parties were equally successful at the time of their union, only one of them has sustained their grade, or graduated to the A-List. In other cases, they remained equally famous, but had other celebrity waters to traverse.

Whatever the case, take a trip down memory lane with these 18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About.

16 Actors Whose Drinking Almost Destroyed Their Careers

bradley-cooper-drinking-war-dogsThere is nothing wrong with getting your buzz on now and again. But it’s not hard to let alcohol use turn into alcohol abuse, especially if you’re drinking to numb the pain or alleviate pressure. Alcoholism can happen to anyone, including stars and celebrities. They are only human, after all. And with it comes the shame of hitting rock bottom. But the stakes are raised for famous actors, as their struggle is often laid bare for the judgmental public, as well as potential employers and collaborators. That’s why a deep dive into the bottle can spell the end of the road for an performer’s career.

The actors on this list either had promising careers or were already successful when trouble arose. But because of their addiction, they nearly lost everything they had worked so hard to achieve. Fortunately, each of them received a wake-up call just in the nick of time. With the support of friends and family, and/or receiving some kind of treatment, they were (mostly) able to pull through. And remember, you don’t have to be a celebrity to overcome a drinking problem. There is help out there for everyone.
