Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape
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.

20. Billy Zane

The suave American actor looked set for big things in the '90s thanks to impressive roles in Dead Calm and Tombstone, but his time in the purple Phantom

After Dark's Red Clover Finds DVD Release Date

Well over a year after it aired on SyFy, the Drew Daywalt-directed Red Clover (aka Leprechaun's Revenge) is making its way to DVD under the After Dark Original banner.

Billy Zane, William Devane, Kelly Washington, Courtney Halverson, Azure Parsons, Matty Ferraro and Kevin Mangold star.  Why the film carries two titles, we don't know, but you can find it on DVD October 22nd.  You'll find the cover art after the jump.

Sixty-six years ago, the town of Irish Channel in Louisiana was the site of a horrible massacre on St. Patrick's Day. Some blame a terrible storm that blew through the town, but those that were there don't speak of the truth. Due to petty superstitions, St. Patrick's Day festivities were banned for the last 66 years, but now, the new Mayor wants to tempt fate and celebrate.

Exclusive: The Origins of Anthony C. Ferrante's Sharknado Discovered in a Previous Syfy Film

We know our stuff when it comes to horror movies. From the indie bizarre to the Hollywood blockbuster, we've got this stuff covered. We are also ridiculously happy about all the mainstream media coverage of Sharknado. But did you know this is not the first on-screen Sharknado sighting?

There's no doubt the title alone of Anthony C. Ferrante's Sharknado just begs to be remembered. How could you not, right? Since we saw the movie weeks ago, the title has been nagging at us. We knew we'd heard that moniker before. Turns out we were exactly right.

In 2012 the Syfy channel aired the After Dark Original film Leprechaun's Revenge, also known as Red Clover, which was directed by Dread Central favorite Drew Daywalt and written by Sharknado director Ferrante, there was a line that literally announces the coming of Sharknado. It takes place in a scene about thirty-five minutes in

Nothing Says St. Patty's Day Like Leprechaun News

Gosh and begorrah, but isn't it time to be wishin' you a Happy Saint Patrick's Day, boyo. And on this blessed occasion, before I get pissed and start acting the maggot, I need to act the tout and tell you that everyone's favorite Irish imp is coming back for more malevolent mischief.

Variety is reporting that, thanks to a deal Lionsgate has made with WWE Studios (part of Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment empire), the cult fave Leprechaun is going to be reimagined for a new generation.
