The Ubiquity of Comic Book Movies - Part 2

In my previous post on this subject over a year ago, I noted how there have been so many comic book movies (and TV shows).  When I see an actor from a comic book movie (or TV show) in another project I instinctively think of them by the comic book alter ego.

And since this writing, I have only gotten worse.

-American Hustle is a movie where Batman and Lois Lane are forced by Rocket Raccoon to work with Ant-Man's sidekick to entrap Hawkeye in a sting while dealing with Batman's crazy wife, Mystique.

-Whiplash has J.Jonah. Jameson emotionally abusing Mr. Fantastic, who is dating Supergirl.

-Sherlock is about the adventures of Dr. Strange and the Everett Ross from Captain America: Civil War.

-Thanos and Two-Face  avoid crazed hit man in No Country for Old Men.

-Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver, and fake Ra's Al Ghul try to survive the monstrosity of Godzilla.

-House of Cards is a show where Lex Luthor rises to power with the assistance of The Daily Planet sport's reporter, Yellowjacket, and Invisible Girl, while sometimes taking time to eat at a diner run by Invisible Girl's father.

-Lost involves Wasp, Kid Omega, and Killer Croc stuck on a mysterious island.

-The Wolf of Wall Street has Harley Quinn and Frank Castle working for DiCaprio.

-You can watch Daredevil and Superman fight over the Cobra's Baroness in Stardust.  And then later you can see Daredevil fight Catwoman after she kills Sinestro and Azazel.

-Blue Chips involves a coaching relationship between Hulk's dad and Steel.

-13 Going on 30 is about Elektra, who is in love with Hulk, and she works for Klaw.

-Prometheus has Heimdall fly a spaceship with Magneto and the Mandrin.

-The new Cinderella's mother is Peggy Carter and the prince is almost thwarted by Dr. Eric Selvig.

-Jurassic World has Star Lord fighting dinosaurs with Wilson Fisk and Gwen Stacy.

-Speaking of Gwen Stacy, both Gwen Stacys are in The Help and one loves and and one hates Amanda Waller.

-On Game of Thrones, Jean Grey married mutant-hater Bolivar Trask.  Also the WAC who kissed Captain America, who is the sister to Iron Fist, married the boy from Batman Begins.

-Richard III had Magneto assassinate Iron Man

-Platoon featured the Green Goblin and the voice of Zoom.

-The 1990's action B-movie Showdown in Little Tokyo featured a team up of the Punisher and the Crow.

-Push features Captain America, Agent May, and Korath

-The hostage drama Desperate Hours has Whiplash take Odin's family hostage, and it also features Casey Jones

-In the Heart of the Sea involves Thor, Spider-Man, and Scarecrow going whaling.

-Creed is where the Human Torch gets taught boxing from Judge Dredd.

-Spider-Man and the Lone Ranger sue Lex Luthor in The Social Network.

-Doctor Who has had Malekith and Kilgrave as the Doctor as well as Nebula, Rip Hunter, and Malcolm Merlyn as the Doctor's companions.
