Has Anyone Been In As Many Comic Book Roles As Jason Flemyng? (Aside From Stan Lee)

Jason Flemyng has one of the largest number of roles in different comic book movies (okay, one is a push, an illustrated serialised novel from a comics publisher and two known comic book creators, but hey.)


From Hell, as Netty, coachman to William Gull.


Kick Ass, as the hotel doorman.


X-Men First Class, as Azrael.


Stardust, as Primus. Shhh, it counts.


League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen as Dr Jekyll…


…and Hyde.

He was also originally going to play The Beast in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: Last Stand, and in Black Mirror played a media mogul with a maniacal laugh called Jack Napier. The name given to The Joker in the Burton Batman films…

And he recently added Gemma Bovery to the list, based on the comic book by Posy Simmonds.


That means he has appeared in more separate franchises of comic book based movies than anyone aside from… Stan Lee? He seems to have outdone Chris Evans now… if you count Jekyll and Hyde as separate roles, that is.

And not one Marvel Studios film to his name yet…
