Catch up with all the high-profile actors who have made Scott Pilgrim vs. the World a cult classic!
With the recent announcement of a Scott Pilgrim vs. the World anime in the works at Netflix with the return of the original cast, we wanted to look at how far each actor has come since the original Scott Pilgrim vs. the World came out thirteen years ago in 2010.
Michael Cera – Scott Pilgrim
Since his role as Scott Pilgrim, Michael Cera has become a Canadian heartthrob. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World won him a Satellite Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy, or Musical. His popularity has skyrocketed since and he’s appeared in films like Juno, Sausage Party, and The Lego Batman Movie. Later this year, he will be in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie.
Michael Cera being Scott Pilgrim again is such a breath of fresh air

Mary Elizabeth Winstead – Ramona Flowers
Mary Elizabeth Winstead captivated audiences as the first manic pixie dream girl, Ramona Flowers. Since starring opposite Michael Cera in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, she has been in Swiss Army Man, Kate, and Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.

Ellen Wong – Knives Chau
Scott’s girlfriend, Knives Chau’s, monologue when she dyes her hair to be more like Ramona went viral on TikTok last year, with users using the audio to show their own hair transformations. Ellen Wong has been in multiple TV shows in the years following her role in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, including The Carrie Diaries and GLOW.

Anna Kendrick – Stacey Pilgrim
Anna Kendrick has only grown more famous since she appeared as Scott’s sister. Movies like Pitch Perfect and Trolls have made her a household name. She’s also since won three MTV Awards and five Kid’s Choice Awards.

Kieran Culkin – Wallace Wells
Kieran Culkin brought so much flavor to the character of Scott’s roommate and gay icon, Wallace. Recently he’s been on the hit show Succession as Roman Roy which has earned him a Critic’s Choice Award award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and a SAG award.
Wallace Wells is the real star of Scott Pilgrim. He is a great character in the comics and Kieran Culkin elevated the text to high heavens. My favorite character honestlu

Satya Babha – Matthew Patel
Ramona’s first ex, Matthew Patel, was brilliantly played by Satya Babha in the movie and fueled a lot of cosplayers who hadn’t yet seen characters that looked like them on the big screen. Since Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, he has had recurring roles on television shows such as New Girl and Sense8.
I frakkin’ love ‘Slick’ off the Scott Pilgrim score. I may just have a crush on Satya Bhabha as well.

Chris Evans – Lucas Lee
A lot has changed for Chris Evans since his role as skateboarding movie star Lucas Lee. From Captain America to Ransom Drysdale, the last thirteen years have had him skyrocketing to fame. Since Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, he has started his own political news site, A Starting Point, and has forrayed into directing with movies like Before We Go.

Brandon Routh – Todd Ingram
Huge in the DC TV verse, Brandon Routh has been a hero since way before his role in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, even if his superpower isn’t veganism. His character Atom on shows like Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has kept him in the hearts and minds of superhero fans.
I can’t believe that Brandon Routh is coming back as Todd Ingram for the Scott Pilgrim anime series, I used to pray for times like thesepic.twitter.com/FbpIFuI5sL

Brie Larson – Envy Adams
Envy Adams’ iconic performance of Metric’s “Black Sheep” is still a huge hit among Scott Pilgrim vs. the World fans. Since the film, she has gained critical acclaim for roles like Room, and Captain Marvel, the former of which earned her an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Actress.

Jason Schwartzman – Gideon Graves
Jason Schwartzman has only become more famous since appearing in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He got his start in Wes Anderson films and has been in many more recently, like Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and The French Dispatch.
While I have Scott Pilgrim on the mind
Gideon Graves as a villain has aged phenomenally well
You just know that dude would have a crypto wallet and promote “meta verse” concert venues

Netflix hasn’t announced a release date or timeline for the anime yet, but hopefully, we get more Scott Pilgrim content with our faves soon!
