Welcome back to Humor Nation. While the actors who have been a part of the Supernatural are no stranger to supernatural beings and monsters. Supernatural revolves around the Winchesters who save lives by hunting Supernatural beings of all sorts; from angels, demons to vampires and werewolves. Supernatural has featured everything that one could think of. It has even crossed over with Scooby-Doo! Could you believe that? Probably one of the things that it has not done is feature popular comic book superheroes. Even though SPN has made numerous references to DC & Marvel comics and popular superheroes. But interestingly, various cast members who played a central role on Supernatural have also been part of the DC & Marvel Universes. They have either acted in the DC/Marvel shows or lend their voice in the animated comic book movies.
So Take A Look At 5 Supernatural Actors Who Have Appeared In DC & Marvel Universe
5. JENSEN ACKLES (DC – BATMAN ANIMATED FILMS)
Jensen Ackles is an amazing actor. His expressions and mannerisms in Supernatural brought the character of Dean Winchester to life. But did you know he’s a very talented voice artist too? Jensen Ackles voiced Red Hood AKA Jason Todd in 2010 released animated Batman movie titled ‘Batman: Under The Red Hood. In Season 3, Jensen’s character Dean says the famous line ‘I am Batman’, but in 2021 Jensen actually became Batman when he voiced the caped crusader in the animated movie ‘Batman: The Long Halloween’ which is based on the comic book of the same name.
4. ADRIANNE PALICKI (MARVEL – AGENTS OF SHIELD)
Adrianne Palicki was there in the beginning of the show. Even though her character Jessica would meet her tragic fate in the first episode and would appear a few more times in small cameos or flashbacks, but Jessica played a crucial role in driving the story of Supernatural. But perhaps Adrianne’s biggest career role came when she was cast as Mockingbird in the MCU show ‘Agents of SHIELD’.

However, it is said that all things happen for a good reason. Katie would eventually get cast in the role of Laurel Lance in the CW show ‘Arrow’ which is based on the DC comics character of Green Arrow. This would become the highlight of her career.
