Here’s What 22 Young Superhero Actors Look Like Now

Everyone loves a good superhero origin story, and we’ve seen many of our favourite child actors get their start playing the younger versions of DC and Marvel’s finest. We wanted to know what these kids—a lot of whom are now grown up—look like today.

Most people on this list are dudes, since we’re still anxiously awaiting more female-centric superhero stories like Wonder Woman, Gotham City Sirens, and New Warriors to premiere. Check out what your favourite superhero kids are doing now.
