From 1995 until 1999, Marlon co-starred in the WB sitcom ''[[The Wayans Bros.]]'' with brother [[Shawn Wayans]]. Though primarily a comedic actor, he garnered considerable critical acclaim for his dramatic turn in ''Requiem for a Dream''. He has also produced the first two films of the ''Scary Movie'' series, in which he and Shawn were credited writers and co-stars. He was sharply criticized for his performance in the 2000 movie ''Dungeons & Dragons'' as "Snails", the incompetent Rogue. He filmed all his scenes in four days before leaving to work on ''[[Requiem for a Dream]]''.

Wayans was originally considered for the role of Robin in the 1992 film ''Batman Returns'',<ref>Rabin, Nathan. (1998-02-25) [http://www.avclub.com/content/node/23240 Marlon Wayans]. The A.V. Club. Retrieved on 2012-04-08.</ref> however it was felt that the film featured too many characters, so the character was omitted from that film. He was then formally signed for the role in the 1995 sequel ''Batman Forever'' to play opposite Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face, but the mid-production change in directors from Tim Burton to Joel Schumacher would result in both parts being recast and Wayans being paid out (Williams was not yet signed on, but he received a penalty fee as his contract for ''Batman'' allowed him the option of reprise), for which he still receives some royalty payments to this day. He was replaced by Chris O'Donnell.
