13 Surprising Facts Of MCU Movies, Even Die-Hard Fans Probably Don’t Know

With the first movie released in 2008, MCU has easily captured many people’s hearts and become a beloved part of many children’s childhoods today. Owning a collection of more than 20 superhero movies, the MCU has introduced many beloved superheroes such as Iron Man, God of Thunder – Thor, Captain America,… And they all quickly become household names.

It could be said that the attraction of MCU is so significant that many people have watched its movies more than once. The reason is simple. You may spot new interesting details every time you see the movies and focus more on their scenes. And, even veteran fans can’t be sure they know everything about the MCU.  So, this article is totally for you, MCU fans. Let us know whether you can figure out these facts about MCU.

#1 Robert Downey often hides food at every scene on set

It’s not only one person who knows the fact that Robert Downey Jr. snuck some tasty props while filming The Avengers. As a veteran of the MCU, he knows better than anyone else how hard it is to film a superhero’s movie. That’s why everyone seems to be familiar with seeing Robert sneaking some snacks onto the set that he would retrieve and eat during certain scenes. Even some eating scenes of Robert were brought into the movie.

#2 Do you know “Thor: Ragnarok” has a different title in Japan?

The term “Ragnarok” means the violent rebirth of the world during which many gods were killed. But that term wasn’t known in Japan, so Marvel had to make a third Thor movie with a completely different and more suitable title for Japanese people. It’s Mighty Thor: Battle Royale with content involving young competitors fighting to the death in an arena.

#3 While Stan Lee wished to play Thor’s father in MCU, Anthony Hopkins – an Oscar winner took that role

The legendary Stan Lee was seen in most MCU movies in different roles. But in an interview, he shared that he would have been interested in playing the role of Thor’s father Odin. But, that role went to Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins.

#4 Do you know why Cap looks bored and doesn’t eat in this picture?

During the time of filming “The Avengers”, Chris Evans also played one role in “Snowpierce”. In that movie, he had grown a beard and couldn’t shave it for the last-minute scene. That’s why in the behind the scene picture of our Avengers, our Captain America can’t eat, he’s also half-covering his face with his hand.

#5 The war rhinos in Black Panther were played by really big horses.

Do you remember the battle scene in Black Panther that features many armored rhinos, ridden by members of Wakanda’s Border Tribe? In fact, these tough-skinned warriors aren’t entirely composed of CGI. Some of them were actually played by Clydesdale horses.

#6 Rumor has it that X-Men characters Wolverine and Magneto were going to make a cameo in Captain America: The First Avenger

Both characters would have been around during World War II. However, they belong to different studios though they are all Marvel characters. As a result, that plan seems never to come true. But they have met in other forms of media, instead.

#7 Agent Coulson was supposed to be a very tiny part of MCU, even he didn’t have his own name.

Clark Gregg firstly appeared in the first Iron-Man. He was supposed to have just 2 scenes and didn’t have an actual name for his role in the script of the movie. Then due to his chemistry with Downey, the director expanded the part.

#8 Doctor Strange was almost a horror movie or certainly one more inspired by horror

Reportedly, master of the genre Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream) was on board to direct a Doctor Strange film way back in 1992. That obviously never happened, but it’s fun to imagine how nightmarish his take on the Marvel sorcerer would have been.

#9 Paul Rudd wasn’t the first person who played Ant-man

The very first person to play Ant-Man onscreen was Garrett Morris. He played a version of Ant-Man in a 1978 Saturday Night Live sketch called “Superhero Party”.

#10 Peter Quill’s ship is named after his childhood crush, Alyssa Milano – an ’80s icon.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed on Twitter after the movie’s 2014 release that he named his ship after Alyssa Milano, who was hugely beloved for her role on Who’s the Boss?

#11 The villain in Spider-Man was supposed to be the hero

Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays Quentin Beck/Mysterio, was rumored to be taking over for Tobey Maguire for 2004’s Spider-Man 2, after the other actor was injured on the set of Seabiscuit. Maguire recovered in time to play Peter Parker again.

#12 Maria’s call sign in Captain Marvel references a possible future MCU hero.

Carol Danvers’ (Brie Larson) best friend and fellow fighter pilot Maria (Lashana Lynch) uses the call sign “photon” in Captain Marvel. This is a reference to one of the superhero identities of her daughter, Monica Rambeau, in the comics. While Monica was played by Akira Akbar in the ’90s-set movie, Teyonah Parris will play the adult version of her in the upcoming Disney+ series WandaVision.

#13 Avengers: Age of Ultron almost acknowledges the unusual sibling relationship the Maximoffs have in some comics.

Olsen did tell Entertainment Weekly that she and Taylor-Johnson “played around with” some of those “uncomfortable images” in their portrayal of the siblings.
