The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been home to infinite entertainers for the past 11 years, with over 20 films under its banner. The actors who have played the various legends and top reprobates in the establishment have become household names, forever associated with their characters. Still, due to the constant rush of new MCU experiences coming to theatres, many exhibitions have been overlooked. We’ve gone over each MCU film’s projects again and identified the most talented performers who you may have forgotten played roles in this blockbuster franchise. In this list, we have Oscar winners, T.V. icons, and top craftsmanship house picks, all of whom have had some sort of effect in the MCU up till now.
Julie Delpy is one of the most well-known French entertainers and producers in recent memory, having won two Academy Awards in her career. That makes it all the more unfortunate that she had a part-time job in the MCU. During the 2015 film “Justice League: Age of Ultron,” Delpy appeared as Madame B., a menacing Soviet who attempted to mold Black Widow into the professional murderer she would become. Delpy only had a few moments of screentime in “Time of Ultron,” but with a subsequent film set to focus on Black Widow’s tale, she could have a more significant role in the MCU if she returns.
In Iron Man 2, she played a T.V. reporter during the Stark Expo.
It’s difficult to forget Adewale Akinnuoye’s appearances, Agbaje’s, whether you remember him from his scene-stealing roles in “Lost” or “Oz.” The crazy British performer, who played the dreadful Curse in “Thor: The Dark World,” was practically unrecognizable for a significant portion of the film due to his unruly light hair and brows, which served as a massive cover. While his role in the MCU was not particularly important, he ruled the D.C. Expanded Universe’s “Reckless Squad,” where he played Killer Croc.
Comedian Garrett Morris
He appeared as a taxi driver in Ant-Man, and he satirized Ant-Man on Saturday Night Live.
Adam Pally was starring in A.B.C.’s “Glad Endings” when he shot his part for “Iron Man 3,” making it appear unusual that he had a minor role. Pally portrayed a news cameraman obsessed with Tony Stark, who let the superhuman use his van in secret. Following his appearance in the MCU in theatres, he landed another network T.V. role in Fox’s “The Mindy Project.” He was prepared for a far more important task!
In The Incredible Hulk, he played Leonard, Bruce Banner’s buddy, and Betty’s one-of-a-kind love affair.
When Josh Dallas had to leave the “Thor” spinoffs, prior “Toss” star Zachary
Levi came in to take his place as Fandral. Levi first played the character in 2013’s “Thor: The Dark World,” a charming but forgettable picture, before reprising the role in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” where he met an unfortunate end. Levi appeared nearly unrecognizable in the MCU motion movies, even to enthusiasts, because he was light in them. Whether or not you remember Levi from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he built a stronger connection with the competing D.C. Extended Universe by starring in 2019’s “Shazam!”
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Danny Pudi portrays an interchanges tech specialist at S.H.I.E.L.D.
At the Stark Expo in Iron Man 2, Seth Green had a flicker and-you’ll-miss-it that was anything but a fan.
Harry Dean Stanton
We’re getting into the realm of appearances here, but given Harry Dean Stanton’s cult appeal among movie buffs, it’s worth noting that he was once a part of the MCU. Stanton debuted in 2012’s “The Avengers” in a role that featured only a single scene but was incredibly impressive. After The Hulk crashes through the structure, he’s ensuring. He sits down to meet with Bruce Banner. Stanton’s death in 2017 means that the bereft gatekeeper will never have another genuine encounter with the Avengers.
Chris O’Dowd (Thor: The Dark World)
Even Chris O’Dowd, separated by such a slight margin, pulled a Gwyneth
Paltrow and forgot he was in the movie. In Thor: The Dark World, he plays Richard, who has an off-kilter date with Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. After appearing in The I.T. Crowd and Bridesmaids, he’d go on to star in This Is 40, while Portman is set to play Thor in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder.
Kate Mara had a quick but essential role in “Iron Man 2” three years before she handled a career-making role in Netflix’s “Place of Cards.” She played an unnamed US Marshal who sent a summons to Tony Stark. If you saw the movie when it first came out, you probably had no idea who she was, but if you’ve seen it since she became a well-known star, that short sequence is one of the best in the movie. Mara landed an extraordinary role in the main period of
F.X.’s “American Horror Story” a year after her role in “Iron Man 2.”
With roles in blockbusters like “Armageddon” and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Liv Tyler has managed to break off from her father’s terrible shadow and establish herself as a true entertainer. She even had a significant role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, portraying Betty Ross, Bruce Banner’s love interest, in 2008’s “The Incredible Hulk.” That film became the MCU’s forgotten child when it was never revisited, and the title character was reworked for 2012’s “The Avengers.” In a later post, I’ll expand on this.
