8 Actors Who Have Played Multiple Superheroes


It’s hard to imagine now, but can you remember a time when talking racoons and Asgardian gods didn’t rule the box office, a time when Robert Downey Jr. wasn’t a bankable star and Christopher Reeves was the only Superman worth thinking about?

Superhero movies have become the dominant force in Hollywood lately and the trend seems set to stay for the foreseeable future. At the time of writing, Marvel and DC alone have roughly thirty movies scheduled for release from now until 2020, and that number could easily hit the thousands by the time this list is published. Anyone ready for a Howard the Duck trilogy?

These days, it seems like the only jobs left available to Hollywood actors are superhero roles, so it makes sense that some have tackled numerous comic book characters in a bid to keep their servants clothed and fed. Join us as we check out 8 actors who have played multiple superheroes during their time in the spotlight and feel free to let us know which role was the better one in the comments section.
