Daredevil moonlighting as Batman? For some actors, one comic book character isn’t enough, nor is one comic publisher. Some actors have jumped the fence between Marvel and DC, playing characters from both companies.
Marvel and DC may have a rivalry going, but that doesn’t stop them from hiring actors who’ve previously worked for the competition. Below is a list of nine actors who’ve portrayed characters from both comic book publishers.
For Marvel: His first foray into the super hero realm was as Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity (2004). Later, he joined Hugh ‘Wolverine’ Jackman as part of the X-franchise, taking on the role of the mutant Wade “Deadpool” Wilson in X-Men: Origins-Wolverine (2009). He is set to recreate this role in Deadpool (2016)
For DC: He got his big opportunity for super hero stardom playing the cosmic hero with the power ring in Green Lantern (2011). Sadly, that »

The extended version of last year’s mutant superhero sequel is set to add an extra 17 minutes to the film, which as you can probably guess from the title, are focussed on the character of Rogue (Anna Paquin), who was all but cut from the theatrical version.

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Moviegoers will venture to all kinds of exotic locales this summer, from Jurassic World to the post-apocalyptic Australian Outback, but Neverland is no longer on the itinerary. Just four days after unveiling a new trailer, Warner Bros. has announced that it’s shifting Peter Pan origin tale Pan from the competitive summer season to the fall.
The pic, which stars newcomer Levi Miller as the eponymous Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, was originally set to open July 24th but is now set for October 9th.
Warner Bros. cited the busy summer slate as one reason for the move. Out of all the major studios vying for box office dominance between May and August, Warners will be the most prolific, opening huge titles throughout the summer including Hot Pursuit, Mad Max: Fury Road, San Andreas, Entourage, Max, Magic Mike Xxl, The Gallows, Vacation, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Me Before You. »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).
Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

With Sony’s “Pixels,” “Fox’s “Paper Towns” and the Weinstein Company’s “Southpaw” opening on July 24, Warner Bros. has decided to move Joe Wright‘s “Pan” to Oct. 9, the studio announced Monday. The move will give Wright more time to complete the action-adventure movie, which will also have more room to breathe in the marketplace. The only other films opening Oct. 9 are Universal’s “Steve Jobs” and Relativity’s Halle Berry thriller “Kidnap.” Monday’s announcement was made by Warner Bros. executives Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of international distribution.

As we are just a few days from the April 10 premiere of the Marvel Studios Daredevil series on Netflix, it.s amusing to turn back the clock 12 years and look at another once-anticipated live-action rendition of Marvel Comics. "Man Without Fear" in the form of the 2003 Daredevil , starring a certain future Dark Knight in Ben Affleck. On non-braille paper, the film seemed to have all its dramatic p.s and q.s minded. Yet, it was notoriously underwhelming. Now, the folks at Screen Junkies give the film a timely focus in their "Honest Trailers" series. Honest Trailers. designation of Daredevil being "Catwoman for men" might be somewhat of harsh comparison to 2004 lineup of litter box leavings that was Halle Berry.s Catwoman. While it was an average-at-best action film that was an uninspired product of contemporaneous cinematic trends, it at least contained the framework for a decent film. Unfortunately, its »

Yesterday, we reported that the British Board of Film Classification listed the runtime for the "Rogue Cut" of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past at exactly 11 minute and 11 seconds longer than the theatrical runtime. While we still don't know when this special edition Blu-ray and DVD will be released, director Bryan Singer clarified the report on his Twitter page, revealing that there will actually be more than 17 minutes of new footage, plus "little changes" he made to the theatrical cut. Of course, he wouldn't elaborate on what these "little changes" may be, but hopefully we'll find out soon enough.
We first reported about the Rogue Cut back in September, with the new footage featuring a subplot involving Anna Paquin's Rogue. While she did appear briefly in the movie, she actually had a much bigger role, with these scenes featuring a group of mutants breaking her out of a prison. »
From the Victoria's Secret Fashion show to the streets of Sesame, Ed Sheeran is clearly an everyman performer - no venue is too big, too small, too sexy, too childish. On Wednesday, the singer-songwriter joined the cast of Sesame Street to perform a song about a very important subject: how to behave at school vs. how to behave at home. "At home I can speak where I please. I can talk real loud into the breeze," he sings alongside Elmo, Cookie Monster and a few other puppets who are surprisingly adept at playing instruments despite puffy fingers. "In school I »

Back in September, we reported that 20th Century Fox is planning a "Rogue Cut" Blu-ray and DVD release for last summer's blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past. Producer Simon Kinberg revealed that this new cut will include more than 10 minutes of extra footage that wasn't included in the theatrical version of X-Men: Days of Future Past. While we still don't know exactly when the "Rogue Cut" will be released, Empire is reporting that it will include exactly 11 minutes and 11 seconds of new footage.
Our report from September revealed that the new footage will involve a subplot that was cut out featuring Anna Paquin's Rogue, which Simon Kinberg called a "substantial part of the movie." The scenes in question involve several different mutants breaking Rogue out of prison. We also reported in January that the "Rogue Cut" will feature all new extras that weren't included in last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past »
This summer fans of Anna Paquin are in for a treat with the release of the Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which restores the True Blood star’s action sequence which was cut from last year’s mutant superhero blockbuster, and now it has been revealed that the extended version will include 11 minutes and 11 seconds of additional footage.
The scene in question reportedly sees Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) launching a rescue attempt, breaking Paquin’s Rogue out of a mutant prison camp controlled by the Sentinels. It will extend the film’s run time from 131 minutes and 26 seconds to 142 minutes 27 seconds.
Update: Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to state that the Rogue Cut is actually more than 17 minutes longer than the original cut, “and has a few little changes I made”. I guess we’ll find out for sure when it finally gets an official release date. »
