25 Marvel Characters Most Fans Didn't Realize Are In The MCU

  • Published on Oct 12, 2018
  • Marvel has slipped some characters into the MCU most fans didn't even realize are there! Subscribe to our channel: goo.gl/ho3Hg6
    The Marvel Cinematic Universe is absolutely TEAMING with popular characters from the comics, such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk and Black Widow - but you're obviously aware of all those.
    The fact is there are literally THOUSANDS of characters in the franchise - whether that be on the big screen or the small screen - and the presence of some of those guys can go under the radar.
    In this video, we'll be taking you through some characters that most fans probably don't even realise are in the MCU.
    Those characters include; the sentient vegetable/swamp monster known as Swamp Thing, the mighty Greek God of War Ares (and, by extension, the entire Greek godly pantheon), the powerful Korbinite warrior Beta Ray Bill, the four cosmic entities Death, Entropy, Eternity and Infinity, the metal-controlling mutant Magneto, Thanos' father Mentor (and, by extension, the other Eternals), Odin's father Bor (and, by extension, a huge variety of dead Asgardian characters), the brilliant Miles Morales (a version of Spider-Man in the comic books), the telepathic villain known as the Leader, Amadeus Cho (who's recently been known as the "Totally Awesome Hulk" in the comic books), the Hulk's red counterpart the Red Hulk, and the Living Tribunal (the second-most-powerful character in all of Marvel) - as well as many others.
    We hope you enjoy the video! Please leave a comment letting us know what you thought about it. And don't forget to subscribe to Screen Rant's TVclip channel, so you never miss our great new video uploads in the future.

    Not a bad video per se, but to be honest - you're reaching preeeetty far with about half of these. Just because a character who exists in the MCU has an important connection to someone in the comics doesn't mean that this connection has to be there in the movies...

  • Bakesale59

    Can we be honest for a second? Beyond mentioning "the incident" in a couple episodes of the Netflix shows there has been absolutely zero crossover between them and the movies. These universes are connected by payroll only and nothing else.

    In the Captain america: The first Avenger, there was an android shown, which could have been a reference to the original Human Torch, Jim Hammond. In Iron Man 2 there was a Shield Map at the background, which had marks on Canada (Hulk), Scandinavia (Where Thor might be), New Mexico (where Thor was), the Antarctica (Captain America), Africa (Black Panther), but these we already have. The last mark however was put above the Atlantic Ocean, which is believed to be a reference to Namor, the Submariner.

    #5 I noticed heck he’s why I clicked this video.
    He was the only one on the Vultures crew not captured or killed that drove me nuts, because he’s the real threat. He was the brains behind everything Vulture was selling. He’s the one who kept pushing for them to go after Stark, but it only happened because they were delayed because Shockers 1 and 2 were firing weapons in the open less then a week after the failed ATM robbery, stupidity or a suggestion from Phineas? He used alien tech to make a drone while Tombs was very vulnerable to suggestion.
    Phineas wanted what was on Starks plane regardless of what Tombs said, he just wanted Tombs to think it was his idea. His victory was a certainty if Tombs succeeds great, if the plane crashes Damage Control will clean it up and it’s been shown to be fairly simple to steal from them.

    • wafflemansfx

      Crimsontiger133 I get a little long-winded sometimes!
      The Netflix shows were created by the same studio as the movies though. The television division, sure... but it’s the same studio. And I don’t know how much more blatant “these thing take place in the same universe” gets than the fact that it was the direct fallout from The Avengers that led to Hell’s Kitchen’s situation at the beginning of Daredevil. Also, I did forget to mention the Hulk appearing both in-picture and by name in the newspaper clippings on Ben Urich’s wall in Daredevil.
      I get what you mean about some things just being references and not meaning anything more (like how in the first Raimi Spider-Man, Aunt May tells Peter he isn’t “Superman”.) but this is like saying that since Werewolf By Night and Thanos have never physically appeared in a story together that they aren’t in the same universe. They definitely are, they just haven’t appeared together to my knowledge.

    • Crimsontiger133
      Crimsontiger133 Month ago

      wafflemansfx wow what a read!
      All very true, but references aren’t cross overs. I know of them as well but they never drop the actual names of the heroes. They can say things related to the heroes but not actually put themselves in the universe.
      It’s like if you went to go see avengers and they put nightcrawler or wolverine in it or has them in the universe then it would not go over well. Haha it is possible to have the companies in charge cooperate and link the two but since they are two different companies then they cannot use content licensed to to the other. All marvel but the characters are all over 😜

    • wafflemansfx
      wafflemansfx Month ago +3

      Actually, given that season one of Daredevil hinges on crime getting worse in Hell’s Kitchen following all the destruction caused by the Chitauri during the first Avengers movie, that the Dogs of Hell appear in both Daredevil and Agents of SHIELD, that Luke Cage was incarcerated in the same prison Trevor Slattery and Justin Hammer were, that Hammer’s company supplied the weapons and armor used to fight Luke Cage in season one, that Micro is both a major character in the Punisher series and a minor ally of Daisy’s on Agents of SHIELD, and there are multiple references across the Netflix shows to Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and The Hulk as well as The Raft... they definitely are part of the MCU.
      Also, the Russos mentioned in an interview that they heavily considered including the Defenders characters but decided against it for a few reasons that ultimately boil down to the logistical nightmare it would have been to include them.
      The only Marvel Studios show that’s not confirmed to be part of the MCU (yet) is Runaways. No references to other MCU events that I can recall. Tina Minoru and the Staff of One appear in the background of Doctor Strange, but it seems like the show’s version of Tina was never associated with Strange. And they’re played by different actors.

    Just because quick silver and scarlet witch are offspring of magneto doesn’t mean he exist in the cinematic universe, they can retcon who their parents are and then screw up this video, so don’t make assumptions just because of that. So like half of these are false because your making assumptions that marvel could totally change.

    Amadeus Cho is not in the MCU. He never made the transition from The Incredible Hulk like Thunderbolt Ross did. The Incredible Hulk belongs to Universal not Marvel. The MCU version of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are not Magneto's children. Hell they got retconned in the comic books years ago to not actually be his children. You did a video on it before in fact that made them The Whizzer's children. Nor are they mutants anymore.

    I think Screen Rant has no idea what the difference between actually existing and being a simple easter egg are. Almost all of these are just easter eggs for fans to oogle at. They do not, in any way, mean the characters are actually in the MCU. Using your own logic you used to create this video, literally every single character ever written in Marvel comics is confirmed to be in the MCU. Remember that time Hawkeye glanced off camera for a sec in that one movie? Ya, that was to show that the Fantastic Four is confirmed to be in the MCU. He was actually looking over at a car hovering off the ground.

    Just because characters exist in the comics, doesn't mean they automatically exist in the MCU. The MCU has changed origins in almost every movie. For example, J'son of Spartax is Starlord's father in the comics. That doesn't mean he exists in the MCU because well, he doesn't. Ego is his father instead. They can do this with any character. A character doesn't exist in the MCU until they actually show up. Most of these examples are reaches.
