What Actors Have Been in DC and Marvel Movies or TV? Part 3

Man, it’s been a minute, but here is part 3 of this series. You can check out part 1 and part 2, in case you missed them. We’re taking a look at the actors that have crossed over the Marvel/DC barrier and acted in movies and TV for both companies.


21. Dominic Purcell

Actor in movies and on the small screen, I first heard of Dominic Purcell when he starred on Fox’s “Prison Break”. This British-born, half-Norwegian, half-Irish actor grew up in Australia and never thought he could become an actor. Today, not only is he an actor, but he’s been in both DC and Marvel productions!

DC -Arrowverse – Mick Rory / Heat Wave

The career criminal and arsonist villain and sci-fi romance novelist in the Arrowverse. His story line is as crazy as it is diverse. He’s a hot-headed and impulsive pyromaniac who lives life according to his own rules.

Marvel – Blade: Trinity – Drake

Very old and powerful vampire, Drake considers himself the best of the vampires and humans, respecting only those who can or could take him in combat.

22. Doug Jones

Though Doug Jones is an actor in the traditional sense, where he’s made his mark in Hollywood is as a silent actor – in prosthetics. He’s been in award-winning shows and movies where he is usually unrecognizable, such as when  he was a Gentleman in the “Hush” episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”.

DC – Arrowverse – Jake Simmons / Deathbolt

Deathbolt could shoot plasma rays from his eyes after absorbing electricity. He was a villain in the Arrowverse until he is killed by Leonard Snart’s cold gun.

Marvel – Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer – Silver Surfer

Silver Surfer is a crazy powerful, amazing comic legend. The movie version…is shiny.

23. Floriana Lima

From Ohio, Floriana wanted to become a journalist. However, working for her local NBC affiliate, she realized she would rather be an actor! After a series of one-off roles in shows, she landed the role of Maggie Sawyer on Supergirl.

DC – Supergirl (TV) – Maggie Sawyer

Though in the comics she is part of the Batman Universe as Kate Kane/Batwoman’s love interest, in the Arrowverse she is a police officer ally of Supergirl and in a relationship with Alex Danvers.

Marvel – Punisher (TV) – Krista Dumont

A Psychotherapist who befriends and becomes romantically involved with friend turned villain Billy Russo.

24.  Françoise Yip

Canadian actress who started in Hong Kong films. Francoise has worked a lot with Jackie Chan and Jet Li.

DC#1 – Arrow – The Priestess

A member of the League of Assassins, she served as a priestess for Ra’s Aal Ghul, who inducts Oliver Queen into the League.

DC#2 – Smallville – Dr. Lia Teng

A North Korean doctor working for LutherCorp who conducts illegal experiments and uses Lazarus serum to bring the dead back.

Marvel – Blade: Trinity – Virago

A vampire in the House of Talos.

25. Gloria Reuben

A beautiful Canadian-American actress known for her appearance as Jeanie Boulet in 90s drama ER.

DC – Flash(90s) – Sabrina

Girlfriend of Barry Allen’s friend, Julio Mendez.
