Over time, some actors like Ryan Reynold, Chris Evans and Ben Affleck have played a superhero more than once in Marvel and DC. But like them, there are some other actors who have had the opportunity to obtain more than two roles within this film genre.
In Marvel, DC or other movie franchises, some actors have been part of successful productions about superheroes where they have been able to show their true potential within acting. It is worth mentioning that some actors have been able to achieve total success while others have left a lot to say due to the failure they went through.
However, all the times that some actors wore a superhero costume is a enough reason to be part of a list of celebrities who have been part of the group of heroic characters in the movies.
On the other hand, the film world is often unfair and a clear example of this is Keanu Reeves. Over time, there have been many stories within Hollywood that how they ended, these could seem like horror movies.
One of the most difficult things is playing a superhero who is already pre-established with the audience. Many people have been following these characters for a long time that is why they are considered true fans. However, some actors consider it a very great honor to be able to wear a superhero costume and for this reason when they are chosen to participate in film productions, they feel privileged and even more if it is on two or more occasions.
