The title basically says it all. Has any actor played in both the DC Extended Universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Preferably not some extra. Upcoming movies also count.

At first, this question seemed too broad to me. This list alone contains 19 actors that were in both DC and Marvel productions.

However, it seems to focus on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, and that's a smaller field. MCU still spans over more than 20 films and 5 TV shows, but it doesn't include anything Marvel-related prior to Iron Man (2008), and the DCEU only released 3 films so far and doesn't seem to include the DC-related TV shows (for now, anyway).

Therefore, the answer is Yes, but I can only come up with 2 actors that appeared in both universes:

1. Ayelet Zurer

DC Extended Universe: Lara Lor-Van, Man of Steel (2013)

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Vanessa Marianna, Daredevil (2015)

2. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

DC Extended Universe: Waylon Jones \ Killer Croc, Suicide Squad (2016)

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Algrim the Strong \ Kurse, Thor: The Dark World (2013)

Additional entries:

[There could be more, though. It's a little hard to go over every actor that appeared on all the Marvel shows, and many of the upcoming films' casts aren't finalized yet.]

  • Is there a reason that the last two actors are in a differently styled list than the first 2? Are they somehow less relevant or did you just want to set a sign of there probably being many more?

    @NapoleonWilson I just added them later, is all. [It might also be a little biased, TBH; I know the first 2 actors from other things, but don't know the last 2 that well and their roles seem minor.]

  • That list of 19 is missing Tao Okamoto, who was Mercy Graves in DC's Batman v Superman, and was also in one of the Wolverine spinoffs.

  • You might want to add Laurence Fishburne. Perry White in the DCEU - Man of Steel(2013) and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016); Bill Foster in the MCU - Ant-Man and The Wasp(2018). May 17, 2020 at 7:35
