Comic Reel-lief: Ryan Reynolds, Chris Evans, and Lucifer

Is it wrong that I heard Ian's voice as The Devil, and Ian's Batman voice as Scumspawn?

Thanks for the responses - it's nice to get back into the swing of things given how busy this year's been.

Great article. I always argued it was silly for actors to be more than one comic book character, but my argumentative side spoke up as I was reading your article. Really enjoyable read.

Could the fact that this is happening be an indicator that comics as a source material are becoming more mainstream? Is Gary Oldman playing Jim Gordon and Sirius Black any different to Halle Berry playing Catwoman and Storm?
