DC as a new Batman, who is no other than Robert Pattinson and also has Mads Mikkelsen is ruling the DC as their new cast lead. Respectively. In what may just be the perfect crossover fans of the hugely successful ‘Harry Potter’ series will now be trading their superheroes gear and vice-versa. Here is the list of actors who crossed over for the wizarding to superheroes universe.
Robert Pattinson is hugely popular among audiences for his role in ‘Twilight’ series as Edward Cullen, and before that, he also got popular for playing a teen role in ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ as Cedric Diggory. Now, he is back on the big screen as Bruce Wayne, aka ‘The Batman’.
Mads Mikkelsen sure knows his way around the wizarding world of spells and magic. The actor played the villain Kaecillius, in ‘Doctor Strange’, picked up a wand to carry on his on-screen evil plans, this time as Gellert Grindelwald in ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore’.
The other star on the list, Jude Law took a noticeable role in the wizarding world and the superhero world around the same time. He played the younger version of Albus Dumbledore in ‘Fantastic Beasts: The crimes of Grindwald’ and is set to reprise his role in the third movie ‘The secrets of Dumbledore’.

We recently saw Gemma Chan saving the world as the celestial being Sersi in the Marvel film ‘Eternals’. Before we saw her in action superhero, she played the magic as MACUSA member Madam Ya Zhou in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
If a genius scientist working with the Avengers to save the world isn’t ‘superhero’ material, we don’t know what is. South Korean actress Claudia Kim who played an important role as Dr. Helen Cho in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, is also known for her role as Nagini in the Harry Potter series. She featured in ‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’, as a circus performer who goes on to become Lord Voldemort’s trusty killer serpent and Horcrux.
Toby Jones has a way of immortalizing his roles in films. The actor voiced the fan-favorite character Dobby in ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ and ‘Deathly Hallows – Part 1’. Leaving the wizards behind, he later moved into the Marvel universe to play the evil Hydra scientist, Armin Zola. While he featured in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he continued to voice the part in the latest series ‘What If…?’
