Playing Human Torch is a gateway to becoming a Marvel icon!

For many actors, playing a Marvel hero — or villain! — is the role of a lifetime. Usually, lightning doesn’t strike twice, but some actors have gotten the chance to bring multiple iconic comic characters to life.

On the other hand, however, Marvel’s original casting choices don’t always work out, a character is recast for a reboot, or certain characters require separate body doubles or voice actors. In these circumstances, one character is played by multiple actors.

Many actors also appear as different characters in different Marvel “universes,” such as the Disney-produced Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Sony-produced Spider-Man Universe, and the Marvel Legacy films (which include the X-Men films and 2005’s Fantastic Four).
