We get so involved with the superhero movie characters that it’s impossible to imagine or watch the actors die in other films. We start to perceive them as invincible who don’t have any vulnerability. But they are just actors who are playing powerful fictional parts. Naturally, these stars have taken roles in other movies where they were shockingly portrayed as week characters who were easily killed. You’ll know what we mean if you have watched Jared Padalecki, who plays the hero Sam Winchester in Supernatural, get killed brutally in House of Wax. Similarly, actors playing Superman, Star-Lord, and Thanos have died like mere mortals in other thrillers. Find out the actors from Superhero films who were killed in horror movies.
