Best Puns in The MCU Movies:
Unlike other Marvel or superhero movies, MCU has reserved its top spot with insane special effects, action sequences, and intense plot. But the biggest key why fans enjoy these movies over and over again is the humor. MCU movies have infused action with a wit so well that we end up laughing even during a major crisis. Almost every scene comes with a joke that goes on for years to come. Our heroes can defeat their nemesis with superpowers, strength, and humor. In this list, we have mentioned the most hilarious and classic puns ever used by our Marvel characters.
1. Captain America: Civil War- Black Widow
If there was one character who was the most badass and savage, it has to be Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow. Her sarcasm with a resting bitch face can slay anyone. In the Civil War when Sam asked Black Widow if anyone ever told her that she’s paranoid. She replies in full confidence “Not to my face. Why, did you hear something?”.
2. Spider-Man: Homecoming- Captain America
Captain America made a cameo in a Homecoming video where he was seen giving lessons to adolescent kids. He goes on by saying “So, your body’s changing. Believe me, I know how that feels.” The only time it would be hard to “believe” Cap. The kids and you are not on the same page!
3. Guardians of the Galaxy- Drax
Drax is one of the most hilarious characters in Guardians of the Galaxy even though it is unintentional. But one of his best puns was “Nothing goes over my head. My reflexes are too fast. I would catch it.”. Well? Would you Drax?
4. Guardians of the Galaxy- Star-Lord
In the first movie when Gamora was learning about Peter Quill and was disgusted by the condition of his spaceship, she calls it “filthy”. But Peter has the most notorious response to it as he says “She has no idea. If I had a black light, the place would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.”. Jackson Pollock was an abstract artist who splashed paint all over his canvas, And by referring to him, Peter is talking about the human fluids splattered in his room.
5. Captain America: Civil War- Iron Man
Tony Stark doesn’t leave his wit even under distress and pain. During the Civil War, he was so severely injured that he could feel the damage in his organs. So when Friday informed him “Multiple contusions detected.”, Tony couldn’t help but use wry humor saying “I detected that, too.”
6. Doctor Strange- Kaecilius
Kaecilius’ puns were on fleek against Doctor Stephen Strange. Our heroes and villains not only use superpowers against each other but also deadly puns and mockery. The first interaction between Doctor Strange and Kaecilius goes as “Mister…?” “Doctor.” “Mister Doctor?” “It’s Strange”. “Maybe. Who am I to judge?” That was savage but we didn’t expect the Sorcerer Supreme to fall for that.
7. Ant-Man and The Wasp
Hope would definitely rank after Black Widow when it comes to wry humor. The Wasp is straightforward, fearless, and super intimidating. When Scott and Hope met Bill Foster who also worked with Hank Pym on the size-altering technology, the 2 men got carried away discussing their record sizes. As Hope finally loses her patience, she snaps with a pun “If you two are finished comparing sizes, we need to figure out a way to track down the lab.” Well, she should have let them have their moment.
8. Thor: Ragnarok- Hela
Hela may have been imprisoned for an unfathomable length of time but she clearly didn’t lose her sense of humor. While taking up the throne, Hela gave a powerful speech about “execution”. She says “Every great king had an executioner. Not just to execute people, but to execute their vision. But… mainly to… execute people, anyway…”. What else can you expect from the Goddess of Death?
9. Captain America: The Winter Soldier- Black Widow
Another scoffing dialogue Natasha Romanoff was used on none other than poor Steve Rogers. At the beginning of the movie when she goes to pick up the century-old Captain America, Romanoff says “Hey, fellas. Either one of you knows where the Smithsonian is? I’m here to pick up a fossil.”
10. Iron Man- Tony Stark
Christine Everheart once compared Tony Stark’s genius mind to that of Da Vinci. When asked of his opinion, he rebuffed it by saying “Absolutely ridiculous, I don’t paint.”. We are guessing it was Jarvis that painted his suit.
