Avengers on Stage: Who Would Thought?

Did you know that most of the Marvel Avengers were on stage? Not only do they have all the superpowers, but they can also fight the best of them against villains, and most importantly, they are all actors playing themselves.

Paul Bettany

He began his career as a robot that becomes infinite and as an android born of stone, but he has since tried his hand at a variety of roles and appeared in a number of musicals, television series, movies, and television series. He made his West End debut in the off-Broadway musical Avenue Q, directed by Stephen Daldry.

Chadwick Boseman

His latest acting project shows his theatrical roots and I would love to see Bettany back on stage at some point. The late actor made history with the Marvel hit Black Panther, in which he played the title character, but his latest acting projects show him back to his theatre roots. Boseman plays the talented trumpeter Levee and has appeared with Viola Davis as Ma Rainey in a number of musicals as well as on Broadway and off-Broadway.

Unfortunately, we will never see Boseman on stage, but his cinematic and theatrical gifts will be with us forever. Don Cheadle last appeared on stage more than two decades ago, so it will be a while before he does. But he’s still one of the greatest actors of all time.

Don Cheadle

Cheadle starred in Cymbeline on Broadway in 1989 and appeared in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “The Great Comet of 1812” in 1990. He also starred as Frankenstein in “Frankenstein,” before swapping roles in 2015’s “Doctor and Creature” with Johnny Lee Miller in West End’s Hamlet. Benedict Cumberbatch’s career on stage has been one of the most exciting and exciting of recent years, both on and off-screen. As well as his roles as Sherlock and Dr. Strange, he made his London Theatre Company debut in 2014.

Chris Evans

The OG Avenger can do anything, including portraitist Chis Evans, but she can withdraw her vibranium shield and superpowers to take on the role of the title character in her new play. Evans plays the pompous policeman Bill in the Second Stage Revival and is often seen in the house next to the show. We are pleased to welcome her back to the theatre community, this time as a guest star in “The Great Comet of 1812” in London.

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson seems to have no problem playing martial arts on screen, but she has yet to play Catherine in the Second Stage revival of “The Great Comet of 1812,” despite appearing as a guest star in it last year.

Whether they play Shakespeare or fight Thanos on screen, these actors have proven that super talent is needed at all levels. While we await the Avengers stage debut, we will see Thor and Iron Man, but we want to harness the epic powers of Vision to see when Paul Bettany will return to the stage. He has also headlined Broadway productions of The Lion King and the Off-Broadway musical Avenue Q on Broadway and in the West End.

Can the Black Widow be one of the strong women on Broadway?
