Regan joins the likes of David Dastmalchian, who has performed a number of comedian guide characters, together with a villain on The Flash and a supporting function within the Ant-Man movies. Josh Segarra, who was additionally a villain on Arrow, has been forged within the Marvel Cinematic Universe spin-off She-Hulk.

However there are a number of extra actors who’ve starred in each universes. Let’s check out 9 actors who you might have forgotten had multi-episode roles within the CWverse alongside memorable performances in Marvel properties.

Kirk Acevedo


On Arrow Season 7, Kirk Acevedo performed prison mastermind Ricardo Diaz, who was a nightmare for Star Metropolis and Crew Arrow. Ten steps forward always, Diaz obtained John Diggle/ Spartan (David Ramsey) hooked on steroids, had Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) by his facet, and even lured previous Crew Arrow mates into his villainous schemes. However, Acevedo’s function on Marvel’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a lot smaller and lasted two episodes. Acevedo performed Agent Tomas Calderon, an rising chief of S.H.I.E.L.D. as soon as the Hydra conspiracy had been revealed. Calderon went up in opposition to Phil Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) faction of S.H.I.E.L.D. and everyone knows how that ended.

Christine Adams


Showing alongside Acevedo on Marvel’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. was Christine Adams. Her function as Agent Anne Weaver was a bit bigger, although. Weaver initially supported the assault on Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. unit, however she was ultimately received over by his crew. Adams is now synonymous together with her function on Black Lightning. Because the Pierce household matriarch, her character Lynn Stewart confronted loads of challenges, together with divorce, substance abuse, blackmail and coping with a household of meta-humans. Within the present, she was a veteran scientist who fought to save lots of as many individuals as she might together with her work. Regardless of being one of many uncommon principal characters with out superpowers, she was a strong and pioneering character on the present.

Dichen Lachman


Dichen Lachman had a small however unforgettable function on Supergirl. She appeared in two episodes of Season 2 as Veronica Sinclair/Roulette, a snake-tattooed socialite and secret ringmaster of an alien struggle membership. She minimize a formidable determine regardless of her brief stint within the CWverse. Her character Jiaying on Marvel’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. was additionally a villain. An Inhuman with immortality, Jiaying was disillusioned by humanity after being experimented on. She created her personal sanctuary, the place she ultimately met her daughter, S.H.I.E.L.D. hero Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet). However Jiaying was not an individual to be trifled with—you have been both together with her or in opposition to her, and characters who fell into the latter class often didn’t fare too properly.

Floriana Lima


I’m uncertain if it was intentional, however Floriana Lima was forged as a love curiosity in each Supergirl and The Punisher. That’s the place the similarities finish although. Lima performed beloved comedian guide character Maggie Sawyer within the CWverse, an out and proud cop who befriended Supergirl’s sister, Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) and ultimately helped Alex come to phrases together with her sexuality. Sawyer ought to have had an extended run on the present, however Lima stepped down as a collection common after only one season, earlier than leaving the present. Her flip as Dr. Krista Dumont on The Punisher lasted one season. She was a tortured psychologist who was mistakenly satisfied she might flip resident dangerous boy Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) good once more. Whether or not Dumont realized something from her expertise with Russo is left to the creativeness. The Punisher was cancelled after its second season.

Carl Lumbly


Carl Lumbly’s flip as Isaiah Bradley on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was heartbreaking. He introduced the pathos and ache of a person forgotten by historical past, in addition to one with simmering rage for by no means having been recompensed for all that he had suffered. Lumbly introduced an identical sense of resilient resignation to his function as M’yrnn J’onzz in Supergirl. M’yrnn had been trapped and tricked by White Martians for many years earlier than being rescued, and as soon as he was, the nice chief was however a shadow of his former self. Lumbly performed a mentor/father determine in each roles, but they have been distinctive in their very own approach.

Neal McDonough


Whereas Dum Dum Dugan was a burly, pleasant good man within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Damien Darhk was an (virtually) irredeemable and unstoppable villain within the CWverse. And Neal McDonough managed to drag off each performances completely. McDonough was virtually unrecognizable in his supporting function as Dum Dum in Captain America: The First Avenger, a personality he returned to in Marvel’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. and What If…? His tackle Darhk was the precise reverse. Darhk was a snide, smarmy and deceptively vicious villain who turned the arch-nemesis of Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz). The character appeared on a number of exhibits within the franchise, together with Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Adrian Pasdar


Adrian Pasdar might have been a formidable villain for Supergirl, however his flip as Morgan Edge was severely underwritten. The character appeared in Season three of the CWverse present and had hardly any display screen time. Glenn Talbot on Marvel’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D., alternatively, was a really totally different story. He was a Brigadier Basic tasked with capturing S.H.I.E.L.D. after they have been revealed to be fronts for Hydra. Talbot was a tough egg to crack—his distaste and mistrust of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been comprehensible however equally irritating. Talbot all the time felt like a little bit of a joke, however Pasdar’s towering presence meant none of us truly laughed at him.

Wil Traval


Wil Traval was one of many principal characters on Jessica Jones. He performed Will Simpson, a former member of the navy who was inducted right into a medical program that messed together with his psychological and bodily well being. He turned concerned with Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) which led to a disastrous finish for him. Traval’s function in Arrow was felt greater than seen. Christopher Likelihood/Human Goal was a grasp of disguise who helped Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) out of some sticky conditions. Traval had restricted display screen time within the two episodes he starred in, however his character was a useful asset to Crew Arrow.

Briana Venskus


Watching Briana Venskus in each Supergirl and Marvel’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. will provide you with a way of déjà vu. Her characters, Agent Vasquez of the Division of Extranormal Operations and Agent Piper of S.H.I.E.L.D., have been eerily comparable. In all honesty, they have been virtually indistinguishable from one another. Each brokers have been in a position aids decked in black and useful with a gun. They would seem on display screen occasionally every time the script known as for it. However Agent Piper’s function was ultimately expanded within the ultimate seasons of Marvel’s Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Venskus gave her a snarky persona that made the character a memorable a part of the crew.
