Six Marvel Cinematic Universe Cameos No One Saw Coming From J.K. Simmons to Charlize Theron

Six Marvel Cinematic Universe Cameos No One Saw Coming From J.K. Simmons to Charlize Theron ...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is full of endless possibilities. It''s quite an idea that someone could have predicted where we will be today. While the Infinity Saga might have teamed together with great heroes and villains from many franchises, fans are still being caught off-guard by guest appearances and performances.

The multiverse is officially underway, and debates on who the next big face to appear are always a talking point for fans. Whether it be an actor reprising a role from a previous Marvel film, a variant of an established character, or simply a new person altogether, the MCU keeps everything hush-hush.

J.K Simmons Spider-Man: Far From Home

J. Jonah Jameson makes his surprise appearance at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. It''s even more satisfying to see the wise-cracking, loud-mouthed Daily Bugle editor return because he is played by J.K Simmons, who notably designed the role into his own with the Sam Raimis Spider-Man series.

Before this sequels release, speculation and notions about the MCUs'' introduction to the multiverse remained unexplored. However, nothing is set in stone until the mid-credits scene, which features J. Jonah Jameson with an infamous distaste towards Spider-Man. His presence confirms Marvel''s beginning in the multiverse theory, leaving it wide open for more familiar faces to re-enter the franchise.

Elon Musk Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 is packed with action, Easter eggs, and surprise cameos. Fans may even remember future Marvel star Kate Mara having a run-in with Tony (Robert Downey Jr.). Elon Musk is also known to be the real-life equivalent of Tony Stark.

In retrospect, Tony would have links to well-known CEOs. Even though Musk is only seen in the one scene, this is a fantastic way to avert Tony''s philanthropy reach and a fun little nod to bringing the real world into the MCU.

Kenneth Branagh Avengers: Infinity War

Kenneth Branagh has been leading an impressive career for over four decades! During his career, entertainment is almost a guarantee; the British actor and filmmaker begins filming Thor, the fourth film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Branagh''s attempt with Marvel finishes with the Russo Brothers at the start of the 2018 Avengers: Infinity War. It''s brief, but fans can hear the distress message from Branagh from the beginning of the movie. It''s a fantastic finish touch to include in the franchise; you may have to wait and see if the British actor and filmmaker will make another comeback.

Ragnarok, Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth, and Sam Neill Thor

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) are a common member of the team, but he may be depreciated, but he may be misled by his appearance. Ragnarok, like Hemsworth, pokes some serious fun at itself.

Matt Damon, Sam Neill, and Hemsworth''s real-life brother, Luke Hemsworth, portray actors on Asgard, putting on a performance that resembles Thor''s life. It makes sense for Damon and Neill to spit into the leading man, although it gives viewers a brief moment of close admiration. The third chapter also features different guest spots.

The Multiverse of Madness: Charlize Theron Doctor Strange

The Illuminatis debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is perhaps overshadowed by another comedy counterpart coming up. There are several individuals who are able to be kept as a total surprise until the moment demands it, and among the others is Charlize Therons Clea.

Clea is a powerful sorceress from the Dark Dimension; her mid-credits cameo enlists Doctor Strange''s help, indicating that she will be an integral part of future films in Phase Four, particularly following Spider-Man: No Way Home. Multiverse of Madness does its best to maintain its list of stars and succeeds, for the most part, with only voice-overs and artillery in the trailer.

Brad Pitt Deadpool 2

Technically the Deadpool movies aren''t officially a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (yet at least), but how many people actually saw this cameo coming? What starts as a humorous gag over an invisible friend turns into one of Marvel''s most bizarre surprise appearances.

Due to his limited visual appearance, Deadpool 2''s screen time is almost impossible. Russell (Ryan Reynolds) X-Force staff is able to defend him from the Cables attack, and his identity is revealed by none other than Brad Pitt. His appearance is literally a blink-and-miss-it moment, but it''s a memorable moment.
