‘The Boys’ Actors Who Have Appeared in DC Comics Films & TV Shows

'The Boys' Actors Who Have Appeared in DC Comics Films & TV Shows

We know that The Boys is one of the most popular comic book series of all time, which is mostly due to the TV series being exceptionally popular; this, of course, increased the popularity of the comic book as well. At the same time, DC Comics is one of the two biggest comic book publishers in the world, and The Boys is, in part, satirizing their work as well.

While these two have very little in common in terms of their plots and characters (aside from the fact that some of The Boys characters are parodies of DC’s characters), there are several people that connect the live-action adaptation of The Boys, as well as the live-action and animated adaptation of DC’s comic books.

These are the actors and actresses who have appeared in both The Boys and DC’s live-action and animated adaptations and in this article, you will find out who they are and what roles they played.

1. Karen Fukuhara

Karen Fukuhara is probably the biggest name on the list in terms of the importance of her characters for both franchises. In The Boys, she plays Kimiko, one of the principal characters, but she also plays Katana in DC’s Suicide Squad.

2. Jensen Ackles
