Most Super Heroes in a non Super Hero movie?

Being unemployed I'm watching WAY too much tv. I was watching What's Your Number (an Anna Faris rom-com) and lo and behold...Chris Evans, Chris Pratt and Anthony Mackie were all in this. While Evans had done the forgettable FF4 movies, First Avenger and this flick came out the same year and the other two guys had not yet assumed their hero roles.

Out of site also came to mind with Keaton, Clooney, Cheadle and Sam Jackson. Not sure if Viola Davis counts, but she was the bad guy in Suicide Squad and will be reprising her role in The Suicide Squad.

So, what other movies have 2 or more current film heroes in non hero roles?

I notice this a lot too. I guess with as expanded as superhero movies have become its...inevitable.

There’s a rom-com movie from a couple years ago called Playing it Cool starring:

Chris Evans - Captain America
Michelle Monaghan - Wonder Woman (voice)
Anthony Mackie - Falcon
Topher Grace - Venom
Ioan Gruffudd - Reed Richards/ Mr. Fantastic

Hail, Caesar has a few:
Josh Brolin
George Clooney
Scarlett Johansson
Tilda Swinton

The three stars of The Prestige are:
The Wolverine
Batman
and Black Widow

I watched an episode of "Maverick" the other day that had a former Green Hornet (Gordon Jones, from the first Green Hornet serial in 1940) arrest and jail a former Batman (Robert Lowery, from the 1949 Batman serial). The former Batman was on his way to plan a caper with an all-star cast of outlaws including Frank and Jesse James, Cole Younger, Belle Starr, Sam Bass, Black Bart, the Dalton brothers and Billy the Kid (played hilariously by a pre-CABARET Joel Grey!).

I can't get over Falcon drilling Mantis who was really a huge black dude and his BFF and former roommate.
Or agent Carter doing the dirty with one of the Weasley twins('s).....robotic doppelganger.
Or Shuri murdering a museum curator and putting his essence in an electric chair and setting the museum on fire.

The Losers:
Jeffrey Dean Morgan: The Comedian
Zoe Saldana: Gamora
Idris Elba: Hiemdall
Chris Evans: The Human Torch

GI Joe: Retaliation has (if we're counting TV versions of superheroes)
Dwayne Johnson: Black Adam (upcoming)
Elodie Yung: Elektra in the Netflix shows
DJ Cotrona: Shazam version of Pedro
Ray Stevenson: Volstagg
Adrianne Palicki: Mockingbird, Agents of Shield
Channing Tatum: Gambit (upcoming)
Bruce Willis: Unbreakable

And I'm sure Fast and the Furious has a few, at the very least the Rock, Vin Diesel, and Gal Gadot.
