actors playing two Marvel characters

When Chris Evans was sought after and eventually won the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avengers, some fans were a little bent out of shape about that because the actor had already played the Human Torch in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four. To some, it just seemed like overkill to have the same actor play two different Marvel superheroes.

However, as we’ve seen, the Marvel cinematic universe is far removed from what 20th Century Fox did with Fantastic Four or what Sony Pictures did with Spider-Man. And in the end, Chris Evans has turned out to one of the best parts of the Marvel cinematic universe, and easily one of the favorite Avengers on the team. So it all worked out.

But now that the Marvel cinematic universe has been established, is there a chance that we could see actors playing two Marvel characters in that comic book world? Thor: The Dark World star Zachary Levi reveals that he has spoken to Kevin Feige about that very question, and the answer might surprise you. Read More »

who should play han solo

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.

Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?

We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »

Heroes Reborn trailer

Years after the conclusion of the NBC sci-fi drama series Heroes, the event series Heroes Reborn returns to the world of super powered humans. And this time our heroes face an entirely different threat than each other.

Two vigilantes (Zachary Levi and Judith Shekoni) are hunting down evolved humans, referred to as Evos, forcing both new and old faces to unite and try to save the world all over again from some kind of impending doom. Can this help redeem the original run of the series from its disappointing end?
