Surprising Cameos in MCU Movies:
One of the biggest reasons behind the success of MCU is the outstanding casting of its leads. These fine actors have set the benchmark so high that other studios are struggling to meet. Apart from its talented set of actors and directors, MCU is popular for its signature post-credits and cameos. Several MCU movies have been blessed with the cameo of the A-list actors of Hollywood.
We have enlisted the 10 best cameos in the MCU.
1. Mark Ruffalo in Iron Man 3
We got so engrossed in the thrills and tensions of Iron Man that we didn’t see this cameo coming. We surely didn’t expect that things would turn out this way in the end. It was a big surprise to find out that the whole film was being described by Tony Stark to his colleague/friend, Bruce Banner. But Bruce falling asleep through Tony’s narration, not to mention while we were on the edge of our seats, was the most hilarious part.
2. Matt Damon in Thor: Ragnarok
Unless it’s a popular face that surprises us and compels us to scream in joy, it doesn’t count as a cameo. And Matt Damon’s cameo has been one of the best cameos in the MCU. As he showed up as an Asgardian actor who poses to be Loki in a theatre, the audience lauded and screamed in excitement.
3. Robert Downey Jr. in Spider-Man: Homecoming
As far as we know, this is probably the most expensive cameos in the history of Hollywood. RDJ who was paid only $500,000 for starring in Iron Man has become such a big asset that 10 years later, he charged $15 Million for those few moments in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He played Peter Parker aka Spider-Man’s mentor and guided him throughout the movie.
4. Stan Lee in all MCU Movies
One cameo that we always looked forward to was of this legendary man. The father of Marvel deserves the top spot. He always appeared in the most unexpected disguise and brought a smile to our face.
5. Miley Cyrus In Guardians Of The Galaxy 2
Not many are aware of the pop star and the former Disney star, Miley Cyrus’ cameo in the MCU. She gave her voice to the robotic warrior, Mainframe who was developed by Tony Stark. It worked with Ravager Captain Staker Ogord and appeared in the post-credits scene.
6. Jeremy Renner in Thor
The cameo of Jeremy Renner in the first movie of Thor introduced his character of Hawkeye to the Marvel World. Apart from learning about Thor, we got insights about Hawkeye, his strengths, and the S.H.I.E.L.D.
7. Robert Downey Jr. in The Incredible Hulk
Robert Downey Jr.’s cameo in the post-credits of the movie was an Easter Egg for the then-upcoming Avengers movie. A superhero appearing in another’s movie is a big deal and an indication of a crossover expected next on the cards.
8. Seth Green in Guardians of the Galaxy
The little appearance of Howard The Duck in Guardians of the Galaxy was an ecstatic moment of true Marvel fans. Many theories believe his cameo to be an Easter Egg. And the amazing Seth Green giving his voice to the popular character was a cherry on top.
9. Samuel L. Jackson in Iron Man
We all know that Iron Man had pioneered the world of MCU. Fans had no idea about the awesome adventures that MCU held for them in the future. But when the great Samuel L. Jackson gave his short appearance at the end of the film, we understood what a big deal Marvel Universe was, and got a sneak to the road ahead of us.
10. Nathan Fillion in Guardians of the Galaxy
Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot’s encounter with the blue giant inmate in the prison was one of the many funny moments of the movie. But the animated character had more significance than you think. Actor and comedian, Nathan Fillion did the voice over for the CGI inter-galactic monster.
