16 Most Hilarious First Meetings Betweem MCU Characters

 

Since the release of Iron Man in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has delivered a slew of beloved superheroes to the big screen, resulting in a cast of tremendously brilliant performers that is unrivaled in any other film franchise. Characters began to cross over into each other’s flicks as the movies and plots got more convoluted, building up to 2018’s Infinity War, which saw the conclusion of every single entry up to that point.

Nobody could have predicted how exciting it would be to watch all of these characters and tales intertwine, but it also resulted in some of Marvel’s funniest on-screen exchanges. These are the most hilarious first encounters between MCU characters.

1. Steve And Groot In Avengers: Infinity War

Steve Rogers and Groot may be the most improbable pair to ever meet, but they’re also the funniest. Thor joins the Battle of Wakanda with his two new pals, Rocket and Groot, during Infinity War. On the battlefield, Thor presents them to his old comrade Captain America, and Groot (or “Tree”) says his lone lines, “I Am Groot.”

“I am Steve Rogers,” Rogers says, being the most serious, no-nonsense Avenger. It’s a truly amazing scene.

2. Spider-Man And Dr. Strange In Avengers: Infinity War

When Spider-Man and Doctor Strange eventually meet, it’s aboard an extraterrestrial spaceship bound for the unknown; then again, it’s hardly the strangest of settings for two Brooklyn superheroes to meet.

After seeing an extraterrestrial spaceship assault New York, Peter Parker finds himself stowed away on it, where he also meets Tony Stark and Strange. Spider-Man presents himself as Peter Parker, having never met the great sorcerer before, only to misunderstand “Doctor Strange” (his true title) for a superhero identity.

3. The Guardians With Tony And Peter In Avengers: Infinity War

When Peter Quill and the Guardians meet Tony Stark and Spider-Man, it has to be one of the funniest MCU entrances. This was one of the most anticipated Infinity War premieres, and it did not disappoint. It’s tough to choose just one moment to highlight; every phrase exchanged among the bunch is pure treasure.

Peter Quill holds Peter Parker at gunpoint, demanding to know where Gamora is after mistaking the two Avengers for Thanos’ cosmic thugs. Tony deduces that Peter is from Earth after de-escalating the situation, to which Peter answers that he is from Missouri, not Earth.

4. Dr. Strange With Thor And Loki In Thor: Ragnarok

Loki believed he was the sole God of Mischief until he met Doctor Strange. It turns out that Loki isn’t the only superhero who can get into mischief. Thor and Loki pay a visit to the sorcerer Dr. Stephen Strange in Thor: Ragnarok, only for Strange to cast Loki into nothingness for nearly half an hour.

For a man who almost defeated all of the Avengers, Loki is rapidly immobilized by Dr. Strange, implying that either Dr. Strange is extremely powerful or Loki is losing his edge.

5. The Guardians And Thor In Avengers: Infinity War

Thor being stranded on the Guardians’ ship shouldn’t be as amusing as it is, but it is.

The Asgardian landing on their windshield was the worst thing that could have happened to Star-ego, Lord’s but it was the best thing for audiences because it leads to some hilarious moments between the two “macho” men, the most amusing of which is Drax referring to Thor as a handsome man and favorably comparing him to Quill’s less-muscular body.

6. Thor And Iron Man In The Avengers

Source: Marvel Studio

The first confrontation between Iron Man and Thor plays out very much how you’d expect. Thor unintentionally comes into contact with Iron Man, AKA Tony Stark, while pursuing down his wicked brother Loki (before Stark has gotten too much of death and destruction and lost his “silly mode”).

Tony mocks Thor’s undeniably absurd ensemble by jokingly comparing it to a Shakespeare festival, followed by a mangled Shakespearean line of verse. Needless to say, the two protagonists reconcile in the end.

7. Bruce Banner And Tony Stark In The Avengers

Tony Stark isn’t above greeting a fellow superhero with a cheeky backhanded compliment (particularly in the early days). In this occasion, Stark has finally met another great scientist turned superhero, Bruce Banner, only to dismiss his achievements by claiming that Banner transforms into a “enormous green anger monster.”

Stark is happy that Banner has a bit more control than he admits, otherwise, he would have ended up like Loki at the conclusion of The Avengers.

8. Bruce Meets And T’Challa In Avengers: Infinity War

Bruce Banner, although being a world-renowned scientist, maybe a touch stupid at times. When the Avengers approach Wakanda for assistance during Infinity War, Bruce welcomes T’Challa, AKA Black Panther, with a courteous bow rather than a handshake or pretty much anything else he could’ve done.

Although the bow’s goal is modest, the end outcome is funny, giving us another reason to like Bruce. Also, Rhodey’s expression is just priceless.

9. Spider-Man And The Winter Soldier In Captain America: Civil War

Spider-Man finally made his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War and fans were overjoyed to see Tom Holland as the famed web-slinger. Despite the fact that Spider-Man barely appears in a few moments, Tom Holland proved to be an excellent pick for the role of Peter Parker, the awkward brainiac.

Spider-Man is faced with facing a number of respected (former) Avengers during his Avengers debut. He’s having fun getting to know everyone – even if it’s via brutal fighting – but the Winter Soldier’s trademark limb has really intrigued him.

10. Ant-Man With Cap And Wanda In Captain America: Civil War

Scott Lang, a.k.a. Ant-Man, is a comedic relief character that brings a lot of laughs to the table. Tensions between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark have reached such a boiling point in Captain America: Civil War that they have formed their own platoons. Former Avengers choose their sides with care, but Lang is content to participate in whatever capacity.

Lang’s eagerness leads to a memorable scene in which he enthusiastically greets the rest of the crew, including Captain America, who flusters Lang. He also (just) remembers to thank Wanda Maximoff, giving her a token “You’re amazing, too!”

11. Ant-Man And Falcon Ant-Man

Source: Marvel Studio

After 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy helped push the next chapter of the universe into more humorous terrain, Scott Lang was a welcome addition to the MCU. Although Edgar Wright’s initial vision for the picture was never realized, we were nonetheless treated to an entertaining, fresh take on the superhero genre, with Paul Rudd assisting in the transition.

Hank Pym orders his new Ant-Man to steal a piece of Stark technology, but Falcon foils his plan. Lang’s initial inclination, much to Pym’s humiliation, is to identify himself and expose his entire scheme.

12. Dr. Strange And Tony In Avengers: Infinity War

Strange enters through a portal during their first encounter to solicit Stark’s assistance in defeating Thanos following the invasion of New York. Of course, the two can’t meet each other without first exchanging a few caustic remarks – especially, since Tony has no idea who this purported magician is at this point.

13. Tony Stark And Peter Parker In Captain America: Civil War

Source: Marvel Studio

Spider-Man made his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War, and it was already the third effort to make Spider-Man a permanent presence on the big screen. Just two years previously to Civil War, the previous Spider-Man, played by Andrew Garfield, was still on film, and Marvel was anxious to bring Spidey into the fold.

Fortunately, Marvel was able to obtain early access to the character, allowing him to play a significant role in the MCU’s next phase. Even lucky, the MCU had wisely opted to skip the depiction of Parker’s terrible history in favor of having Iron Man show up at his house. It was a far more effective and amusing method of introducing the young web-slinger.

14. Hawkeye And Black Panther In Captain America: Civil War

Source: Marvel Studio

The introduction of T’Challa and Clint is by far the most believable. Hawkeye finds he’s never met Black Panther after partaking in a deadly battle between two superhero groups. During fight, he makes an attempt to introduce himself. T’Challa merely answers, “I don’t care,” and fights Clint again.

This is a dig at some Avengers’ proclivity for making witty asides during tight situations, which, let’s face it, most of them are guilty of.

15. Hulk With Dr. Strange And Wong In Avengers: Infinity War

Source: Marvel Studio

After Thanos destroys the Asgardian mothership, Heimdall uses a vortex to bring Hulk plummeting down to Earth, depositing him in Doctor Strange’s Sanctum in New York. Strange and Wong are unconcerned that Banner has crashed-landed in their sanctuary; after all, strange things seem to happen to these powerful heroes.

16. Thor And Valkyrie In Thor: Ragnarokqui

Source: Marvel Studio

Valkyrie may be one of the MCU’s newest superheroes, but she’s already one of the coolest. After saving Thor from a gang of robbers, a drunken Valkyrie makes her epic debut in Thor: Ragnarok. He expresses his gratitude before being instantaneously eliminated by one of her devices.

Fortunately, Thor and Valkyrie reconcile, leading to the formation of the “Revengers” and Valkyrie’s eventual ascension to the throne of (New) Asgard.
