Vancouver, BC. It's a rainy October night in Vancouver, but on the location for The CW's "The Flash," they're having a Heat Wave. Sorry. Actually, out in the Vancouver street, it's The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) having a showdown on the rain-soaked pavement as umbrella wielding PAs stand by to shelter the two actors. Speaking of shelter, a small group of reporters is poised on a ledge 100 feet away from the street. We were given permission to shoot non-spoiler pictures from our distant pedestal and, with the light and the drizzle and my cell phone camera, this was the best I could do. At least The Flash is visible. We're scurrying in and out between the rain and a warm makeshift interview room in which we've talked to all of the "Flash" stars. That interview room is where we're having a Heat Wave, or at least »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.
Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.
Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.
