The Hollywood movie industry may seem amazing for stars, but not all actors go through an easy path to gain the respect of the audience.
There are some cases that had a complicated moment in their career and even seemed finished, but they received a second chance and did not waste it to conquer the screen.
Here are 5 of the most outstanding cases of actors who revived their career in a big way:
Vin Diesel received recognition as an action actor in 2000 for the role of Riddick in Pitch Black. Then he started the Fast and Furious and Triple X franchises.
However, the actor did not want to participate in the second and third parts of Fast and Furious nor in the sequel of Triple X.
Diesel concentrated on The Chronicles of Riddick franchise, which, although it did not receive positive reviews, was a box-office success.
Fast and Furious welcomed him back and Dominic Toretto is one of the most important characters in the saga, although the actor was on the verge of leaving it for good.
Jason Momoa has told that, despite the success of Game of Thrones, he had financial difficulties after his participation in the series, as he did not get important roles.
Momoa received his chance to shine as Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe and, in recent years, has become a major celebrity in Hollywood.
Before he was the funny Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds had a few stumbles in superhero movies.
The Canadian actor appeared in Blade: Trinity, X-Men: Origins and Green Lantern, but none of those productions received positive reviews.
Reynolds was also Deadpool in the Wolverine movie, but the character was not positively received; however, after a restructuring of the role, the actor got a second chance and became one of the best antiheroes in cinema.
Michael B. Jordan
After having supporting roles in film and television, Michael B. Jordan received the opportunity to star in The Fantastic Four as Johnny Storm or the Human Torch in 2015.
The movie was trashed by critics and Michael B. Jordan received criticism because the original Johnny Storm character is not an African-American male.
It didn’t take long for the actor’s image to become relevant in Hollywood, as the same year he starred in Creed and, after 3 years of absence, he returned as Erik Killmonger in Black Panther.
Michael B. Jordan turned Killmonger into one of Marvel’s most acclaimed villains and is an important part of the Creed franchise, as in addition to starring in it, he will direct the third installment.
Chris Evans also played Johnny Storm from Fantastic Four, but 10 years before Michael B. Jordan.
Although the movie had a sequel and Chris Evans was part of the main cast, his career in the late 2000s did not look promising, as he only got supporting roles.In 2011, Marvel Studios offered him the role of Captain America and Evans was about to turn it down, but he reconsidered his decision and the character gave him a new level of fame.
