7 Actors Who Played More Than One Role in Marvel Movies
Here are some of Marvel's most multi-talented actors.
In the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, some actors have had the unique privilege of donning multiple superhero (or villain) capes. Let's remember some of the actors who have left their mark not once, but twice or more in Marvel films.
Linda Cardellini has been a constant in the Marvel Universe as Laura Barton, Hawkeye 's wife. But did you know Cardellini also lent her voice to Lylla, an experimental Otter in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? Yes, it was Linda Cardellini.
Before he became the embodiment of virtue as Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger, Chris Evans brought the fiery Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, to life in the Fantastic Four series.
Despite the mixed reviews of the Fantastic Four franchise, Evans' performance was well-received, paving the way for his iconic role as the First Avenger.
Laura Haddock has a unique claim to fame in the MCU. She first popped up as a star-struck fan hunting for Captain America's autograph in The First Avenger. Fast-forward to Guardians of the Galaxy, and there she is again, playing Peter Quill's mother, Meredith.
In the vast Marvel landscape, the late Ray Stevenson managed to etch his presence not once, but twice. Firstly, as the hard-hitting vigilante in Punisher: War Zone, and later, as Volstagg, one of Thor's trusty Warriors Three.
Although Volstagg met his end during the skirmish with Hela in Thor: Ragnarok, Stevenson's portrayal remains etched in our hearts. What a legend!
Our favorite master of the mystic arts, Benedict Cumberbatch, took on a double whammy in his first outing in the MCU. While he splendidly portrayed the snarky yet lovable Stephen Strange, Cumberbatch also took on the role of the sinister Dormammu.
Using motion capture and his own voice, Cumberbatch gave life to the villainous entity from the Dark Dimension.
Gemma Chan started her journey in the MCU as Minn-Erva, a member of the villainous Kree Starforce in Captain Marvel.
But she later morphed into Sersi, the compassionate and kind-hearted leader of the Eternals.
Here's a fun one. Kenneth Choi's dual role in the MCU actually connects generations. In his first outing, Choi was Jim Morita, a private in Captain America's Howling Commandos, and later reprised the same role in the TV series Agent Carter.
But in Spider-Man: Homecoming, there's Choi playing Principal Morita, who is the grandson of his earlier character, Jim.
