AI Imagines Leonardo DiCaprio As Marvel & DC Characters – The Results Are Amazing

l intro 1712944828

Overall, these concept images featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as Marvel and DC heroes are both inspiring and infuriating. While DiCaprio has continued to stay in his own lane and focus on working with auteurs, it’s disappointing that the prolific actor has never dabbled in elevated genre fare. One of the best images from creator @esheffects is the visual of the “Wolf of Wall Street” actor stepping into the shoes of Marvel’s Spider-Man/Peter Parker. 

The performer was offered the opportunity to play the titular web-head in Sam Raimi’s trilogy, but that’s just one of the many huge roles that DiCaprio has turned down. The Spider-Man gig would eventually go to his good friend Tobey Maguire. DiCaprio even shot down the idea of playing Robin in “Batman Forever,” showing that he’s been an anti-superhero actor since the ’90s. While it’s unclear why DiCaprio has no interest in Marvel or DC projects, the actor has made it a point to warn the next generation of actors to avoid these projects. Timothée Chalamet, one of the most pronounced actors working today, once revealed that DiCaprio told him to avoid superhero fare. 

While he’s been ignoring the genre his entire career, DiCaprio would definitely excel at playing Spider-Man or Batman. The actor may be too old to play Spider-Man right now, but DiCaprio could be a compelling Caped Crusader for Andy Muschietti’s “Brave and the Bold” flick, which features an older Batman.
