Chris Hemsworth Confirms That Marvel Actors Aren't Allowed To Be In DC Movies



Chris Hemsworth has finally confirmed what we’ve all suspected all along: Marvel actors aren’t allowed to be in DC movies.

The rivalry between Marvel and DC has always been apparent. Fans of the cinematic universes have been very vocal about their alliances, even if the directors and producers sometimes behave as friends. It probably comes as no surprise then that Marvel is intent on keeping their actors on lockdown. Speaking at the Supanova convention in Australia, Chris Hemsworth openly admitted that it was “illegal” for any of the Marvel actors, including Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr, to appear in the DCEU.

It seems Marvel doesn’t want any of their actors batting for the other team and appearing in DC’s Justice League. Hence, they have probably included a clause in the actors’ contracts to prohibit them from jumping team. This clause probably only refers to Marvel Studios and Warner Bros, and not Fox’s Marvel universe, as Josh Brolin, who plays Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, will play Cable in Deadpool 2.

The news comes from Twitter user Tyler James, who was in attendance at the convention:

Sadly, this means we will never see Tom Hiddleston as the Joker or Dave Bautista as Bane.

Not surprising at all. People might get confused.

Guest

I guess Ryan Reynolds doesn’t count. Green Latern and Deadpool

Guest

Chris Hemsworth’s movies are in the MCU, Deadpool isn’t. The link here is irrelevant.

Guest

Or maybe he can’t go back and do another D.C. Movie now that he has done the marvel one

Guest

If they are under contract on multiple movie deals marvel will not let them do movies for the direct competition. Why would they? Lol. As for Ryan Reynolds, he went from d.c. To marvel, wasn’t on a multi contract and now that he is, he cant go back til his contract runs out. Its called looking after your investment.

Guest

They shouldn’t have let Whedon go. Big mistake for them. Better for comic fans.

Guest

Understandable with the conflict of interest.

Guest

Y would u want to leave marvel making great movies to dc who have made overhyped movie’s

Guest

I’m guessing this only applies to their main draw card actors, because there have been a few actors that contradict this.

Guest

Well they are under contract

Guest

Does this only count MCU or all if Marvel? Because J.K. Simmons was in Spider-Man and will be in Justice League

Guest

Then why the hell is JK Simmons in DC?

Guest

Rasheedah Grace Bennett

Guest

Is that a new rule that just got passed? Because you had Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern and Deadpool.

Guest

Deadpool wasn’t made by Marvel Studios.. it was made my Fox

Guest

Fox owns Deadpool.

Guest

also when the stand-alone Green Lantern flopped nobody cared when Ryan switched the team. when you sign for several movies for Marvel you can’t do a DC movie in between, and vice versa. it’s actually logical that you don’t work for the competition (in the superhero movie business) at the same time.

Guest

Key word is in contract. Once the contract is over they are free to choose their roles.

Guest
Guest

This must be a very new rule

Most notably there is Ryan Reynolds:

Marvel: dead pool
Hannibal king

D.C.: Green lantern

But we also have

Ben affleck
M: daredevil
D.C.: batsman

James marsden
M: cyclops
D.C.: Richard white

Chris Evans
M: human torch and captain America
D.C.: the losers

Natalie Portman:
V for vendetta for D.C. and Thor for marvel

Idris Elba: the losers for D.C. And multiple marvel movies

I can think of about 13 more

Halle berry
Parker posey
The dude that played KC in suicide squad
Zoe Saldana
Tommy lee jones
Michael fassbender
Etc
Etc

these are not Star Trek fan film guidelines. it means as long as an actor has a contract at Marvel they’re not allowed to play another role in a DC movie (the #1 competition) (superhero or other genre). if their contract ends they can do whatever they want. this is nothing new. Affleck: daredevil stand-alone, Batman multi-movie-deal years after DD deal ended … Marsden: first X-Men, after that contract, Superman Returns stand-alone … Evans: Human Torch (Fox) deal ends, then Losers stand-alone, then MCU multi-movie-deal … Portman: V stand-alone, 6 years after that the MCU multi-movie-deal … come on we… Read more »

You forgot Dominic Cooper, DC was by far the winner

Guest

Yes, while they are under contract they are not allowed…c’mon now, this is just common sense. I weep for the future of comics fandom.

Guest

Ada Under contract with Marvel Studios… not Fox (X-men, Deadpool, FF, etc).

Guest

I thought if you signed with fox you also had to sign with marvel. Something about them owning your likeness and all that jazz for future comic use and such. That’s what I read a while back

Guest

That sounds accurate Ada but they still wouldn’t be allowed to do DC films either way if they are under contract.

Chet…what exactly did DC win? They have been getting owned by Marvel in both their films & with their TV series. That’s not to say that the DC films aren’t entertaining but they don’t hold a candle to Marvel.

Guest

Because of ryan Reynolds….its all his fault

Guest
Guest

Y’all forget that Deadpool and Xmen are Fox… And it could be a new rule. Stop being trolls… LOL

Guest

it’s not a new rule, this is usual business since many many many years. but nobody cared about it because until Marvel started its shared universe all movie deals basically contained stand-alone movies (with the chance for sequels). especially since Marvel and DC are not just like any other film studio, both companies are doing only one kind of genre: live-action comic book movies (mostly superhero genre) … just saying, i didn’t suspected it, I knew all along without even wasting a thought about it. ;-)

Guest

Frank Lindner well, this is a practice that I am aware of, I didn’t feel like typing so much, but I am not the one saying that it’s wrong. I guess since I mentioned “troll” I get an unnecessary explanation.

Guest

sorry, I never want to write much, but if I write less I get often misunderstood and then have to write it again with more words. :-p

Guest
Guest

why would they want to go from success to dark failure? :P

Guest

Chris Evans was in “The Loosers”

Guest

stand-alone DC movie BEFORE he signed at Marvel, not at the same time. (Losers*)

Guest

Logic is that he can’t do a part 2 now, that is all

Guest

oh he can do a part 2, after his Marvel contract ends. ;-) I doubt that most contracts of our Avengers go beyond “Avengers 4” (the end of MCU phase 3).

Guest

True, but, no chance of part 2 happening at all

Guest

Umm, does he mean now? Ryan Reynolds went from Blade 3 to Green Lantern to DeadPool. My eyes just got crossed!!!!

Guest

X-men Origins, Green Lantern, Deadpool 😉

Guest

I forgot about Wolverine Origins

Guest

But I think everyone wants to forget that one LOL!

Guest

Neither blade 3 nor Deadpool were marvel studios movies. Deadpool is fox and I believe the blade trilogy was also.

Guest

Didn’t they just confirmed Sony Spider-Man was MCU? Fox ,Sony, Disney, Netflix who cares? The point is if the beginning of the movie starts off with a Marvel logo it’s the same to me.

Guest

There goes my idea of Idris Elba as Green Lantern.

Guest

Since John Stewart is probably the least interesting Green Lantern, it’s probably for the best

Guest

I think this is because audiences are complete idiots now. For some stupid reason people view movies as a twisted reality where they complain when an actor plays more than one part. We are unable to suspend our disbelief and let actors be actors.

Guest

Is about money and contracts not you active imagination. These are the terms the actors agreed to when the signed up for the role

Guest

Right.. I know that. And it’s a shame that the audience can’t handle actors in different roles so they have to have these contracts. I’m almost positive the suits don’t give a shit.. it’s to make the audience happy and bring in money as you said but again, it’s because the audience will complain like idiots who don’t get what an actor is and does.

Guest

Two words, Ryan Reynolds. Both Marvel and D.C. Guess he didn’t get the memo.

Guest

I guess i have a little bit more faith in humanity then you do

Guest

Ursula Johnson Ryan Reynolds was in a D.C. and Fox production… not Marvel Studios (which they are referring to when they say Marvel).

Guest

also Ryan Reynolds did first DC and many years later the FOX production. after eachother not at the same time.

Guest

You guys know that he has an agent and he didn’t write himself into the movies, right?
This is what I mean… it’s NOT the fault of Ryan Reynolds lol… that is just silly. It because ridiculous fanboys don’t like it when someone plays more that one part in more than one film…. they get confused easily. Remember when T2 came out and a LOT of people needed to have it explained to them that Arnold’s character wasn’t resurrected? Audiences are kinda stupid for the most part.

Guest

Colson, I agree with you completely but you stopped short of a full understanding of how the general public views films.

Guest

Ursula Johnson Ben Affleck.

Guest

Captain America is Johnny Storm!

Guest

If I was them, I’d be thankful. Most of the D.C. Movies (excluding wonder woman) were big flops.

Guest
Guest

To clear things up (because this is bullshit clickbait):
If they have a contract with one, they cant have a 2nd contract with the other… after the contract ends they can go work for the other.

Guest

Well that’s obviously logical.

Guest

Finally the comment I was looking for. Only if everyone knew the simple stuffs about how contracts work!!

Guest

Thankfully, this has zero impact on my strong desire to see Benedict Cumberbatch play Grand Admiral Thrawn… :D

Guest

Of course not.

Guest

But some of them are not under contract. Robert Downey Jr is just being paid per movie.

Guest

So no green lantern in justice league?

Guest

Morrena Baccarin. Deadpool & Gotham

Guest

Who would want to? DC movies have started sucking after batman and superman both tried to out brood each other and compete for wolverine level pity.

Guest

Lmao. Yet they’re far better than anything Marvel has set at the table.

Guest

Drugs are bad Stephen.

Guest

While being out of continuity, the X-Men movies are still better than any post Christopher Reeves superman movie. the DC animated series have made far better advancements in the DCU than live action. I mean, seriously, suicide squad got a movie? and it wasn’t that good. we got how many seconds of a crappy joker? it was a Will Smith movie featuring characters based on DC properties.

Guest

Still, after all that, it is better than marvel.

Guest

Whatever. DC jasnt been good since Bale finished up.

Guest

Man of Steel was a great movie if you took the time too look at it

Guest

Affleck is a much better Batman than Bale, Jason Scott. You’re the one who doesn’t get it.

Guest

Man of Steel made Superman a jerk raised by a coward. Zod is a dull villain, which made for a dull movie. And Eisenberg as Luther was even worse than the internet predicted

Guest

Oh noes! Lol

Guest

Not true. If you look through actor Chris Evans resume, it will show that he has done movies for both comic franchises. Not only as Johnny Storm and Captain America, but also played Jensen in DC comics The Losers. And let us not forget our favorite wise cracking hero/villain in a red suit…. Deadpool. Played by Ryan Reynolds. Now while he absolutely shined in his performance as such, let us not forget his flop in DC’S Green Lantern.

Guest

Spot on

Guest

This is hardly surprising. Marvel probably doesn’t want DC to get RDJ’s star-power on their side. And that’s a good thing, because some casual fans can’t tell the difference between Marvel and DC films. (people at work asked me if Wonder Woman is going to be in the next Avengers film.)

Guest

Maybe it’s so they can have crossovers like marvel and dc have done in the past

Guest

Good. Dc is shit
