14 Minor Characters Who Actually Have Huge Impacts In MCU Movies

The finest minor MCU characters are living proof that performers can excel in even the tiniest parts in one way or another. Making a lasting impression doesn’t need plenty of screen time. Some characters, like Ellen Brandt from Iron Man 3 and Hogun from the Thor movies, are all about intensity. Others stand out due to their humorous qualities, such as Kurt from the Ant-Man films and Garthan Saal from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Then there are those who make the most of a brief cameo, like the Seamstress from Spider-Man: Far From Home and Ursa Major from Black Widow. These minor MCU characters left a lasting effect, whether they were recurrent sidekicks or temporary fill-ins.

1. Hogun In ‘Thor’

Hogun is completely uncool, as is the case with many Asgardians, including Sif and Odin. Hogun is one of “The Warriors Three,” also known as Thor’s closest Asgardian friends, along with Fandral and Volstagg. The bulky, happy one as Volstagg. The character in the MCU that resembles Robin Hood the most is Fandral, who is portrayed by two separate actors. Hogun, on the other hand, is the one who takes no s— from anyone.

In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela swiftly dispatched Volstagg and Fandral, but Hogun actually managed to resist the Goddess of Death. For a little moment, we believed Hogun might survive his annihilation as he faced her down and maintained his composure in the face of it. Tadanobu

2. Sharon Davis In ‘WandaVision’

WandaVision has several instances that make it clear that something is definitely wrong with whatever is happening in Westview, New Jersey. There is a lot wrong with the show’s false ads. A particularly scary high point involves a jumpscare featuring an undead Vision. And do you recall the instant Wanda found out she was pregnant? But without a doubt, the most distressing scene in the entire series is when Vision’s employer starts coughing around the conclusion of the first episode.

Mrs. Hart, his wife, who is actually Sharon Davis who Wanda has altered, starts laughing and repeatedly saying, “Stop it!” Compared to the MCU, it seems more at home in a David Lynch film, and Debra

3. Garthan Saal In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

What an idiotic group of people. When Garthan Saal, played by Peter Serafinowicz, spoke the statement in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie’s debut teaser, viewers who had never even heard of the comic book team before supported the project. Serafinowicz gives Saal a constant sense of deadpan disgust about everything going on around him. He refers to Rocket as a hamster, for example, which is actually rather amusing.

He informs Star-Lord with nothing but hatred in his voice that he “recommended against trusting [them]” as he and the Nova Corps support the Guardians in their fight against Ronan towards the film’s conclusion. Saal died in that combat, and he died being exactly as he was: a complete grouch.

4. W’Kabi In ‘Black Panther’

A major accomplishment for Ryan Coogler, Kevin Feige, and the team was getting Daniel Kaluuya to play such a little role in Black Panther. And Kaluuya, who is an amazing actor, gives a terrific portrayal as W’Kabi, T’Challa’s close buddy. All it takes is for Erik Killmonger to arrive with Ulysses Klaue’s body in a bag for W’Kabi to betray his best friend in the entire universe.

In the movie, Killmonger seems to kill T’Challa at one point, and W’Kabi doesn’t seem to care much. This foreigner killed the person responsible for killing his parents, thus he is entirely on his side, no questions asked. At the film’s conclusion, he even faces up to his own wife, Okoye. He may have thought things over for a moment before behaving so hastily.

5. Kurt In ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Source: Marvel Studio

With his hilarious performance as Polka-Dot Man in The Suicide Squad, David Dastmalchian may have made the transition from sidekick to superhero, but MCU fans will always remember him as Kurt from the Ant-Man movies. What else can be said about Kurt? He is an odd hacker whose temperament abruptly shifts from humorous to serious.

Dastmalchian plays as a vaguely Russian oddball, which sets him apart from the overwhelming majority of non-Black Widow supporting characters (unlike T.I.’s Dave, who is essentially just T.I.). Kurt also regards Baba Yaga, a legendary supernatural figure from Slavic folklore. In the movie Ant-Man and the Wasp, he makes that extremely plain.

6. Taserface In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

Taserface, oh my. We scarcely even knew you. However, your brief stay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was undoubtedly remarkable. You wormed your way into the hearts of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 fans all across the world with your disgustingly deformed visage, a pair of shiny gold teeth, and an excessively long beard. Even if Taserface lacked intelligence, he was able to organize a revolt against Yondu, and that had to mean something.

Even his death is loud and noteworthy because, as his final act before dying, he tells the arrogant Sovereign where the Guardians are located before being blown to pieces. Fans of the MCU will remember Taserface for years to come, despite the fact that he had a stupid name and a nasty attitude.

7. Ellen Brandt In ‘Iron Man 3’

Source: Marvel Studio

Even though Ellen Brandt, played by Stephanie Szostak, is a very minor antagonist in Iron Man 3, she is nevertheless quite noticeable. When the MCU first started, most villains, such as Malekith from Thor: The Dark World and Ronan the Accuser from Guardians of the Galaxy, were quite uninteresting. However, Brandt completely changes that with her few appearances. She simply enjoys using violence.

When she encounters Tony Stark, she is disguising herself as a Homeland Security agent and has arrived in Rose Hill, Tennessee, on a mission to obtain some information concerning Extremis. She enjoys murdering a few policemen and beating up a Stark without Iron Man in the ensuing bar brawl. She is blasted into the air by Tony using a microwave to blow her to kingdom come, where she is finally fried by powerlines.

8. Hunter C-20 In ‘Loki’

Source: Marvel Studio

Hunter C-20 seems to be quite a passionate individual, whether she is being controlled by Sylvie or ranting against the TVA and the variations’ reality. Her ranting “It’s real” on repeat even after she was freed from Sylvie’s control is incredibly severe. To be fair, realizing your entire existence and world are lies will have that effect on you. Sadly for Hunter C-20, Ravonna Renslayer was not interested in hearing any of it.

Before lying to Mobius and claiming that C-20 died as a result of Sylvie’s mental pushing and prodding, Renslayer seems to prune C-20. She even claims that C-20 was unable to talk before passing away, which is totally false. She was going on and on about the TVA’s reality. Sasha Lane excelled in portraying a variety of dramatic emotions in her limited screen time despite having a large amount of responsibility in her small part.

9. Seamstress In ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

Source: Marvel Studio

Halfway through Spider-Man: Far From Home, the unnamed woman known only as the “Seamstress” appears for less than a minute. But it’s obvious that this woman doesn’t put up with idiots. She commands Peter Parker to remove his clothing while possessing the visage of a cold-blooded murderer. She blatantly tries to kill Brad Davis when he enters and suspects Peter and the Seamstress are engaging in some nefarious activity.

Yep. She picks on a high school student only for entering the room when Peter Parker was still wearing his boxers. She tries to murder one of Peter’s classmates, which is not entirely surprising given that she collaborates with the frank superspy, Nick Fury. Talk about not being modest.

10. Minn-Erva In ‘Captain Marvel’

Source: Marvel Studio

Gemma Chan previously played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel before being cast as Sersi in Eternals. Sersi appears to be a kind, caring person, making Minn-Erva her complete opposite. As it turned out, Minn-Erva was an excellent marksman who enjoyed killing. Hey, you never work a day in your life if you love what you do, right?

She also had an intense dislike for Carol Danvers from the start of their relationship. She even tells Carol directly at one point, “I never liked you.” At the conclusion of Captain Marvel, Minn-Erva is shot to death with a minigun, allowing Chan to play Sersi in a large number of upcoming MCU movies. And, to be completely honest, we doubt that anyone will ever miss Minn-Erva.

11. Jackson Brice In ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Source: Marvel Studio

Jackson Brice didn’t exactly come across as the smartest person around in Spider-Man: Homecoming before getting vaporized by his own employer. He arrives at work late in the first scene of the movie. He proved to be persistent pain in Adrian Toomes’ and his organization’s side. He even threatened his own supervisor, a guy who was well-known for recovering and reselling extraterrestrial technology.

Overall, he had a negative demeanor and was unappealing to be around. However, he was the one who coined the name “The Shocker,” and he wasn’t averse to facing Spider-Man head-on. If he had been a bit more cautious, could he have lasted a little longer in the MCU? No, he wouldn’t still be Jackson Brice, would he?

12. Ursa Major In ‘Black Widow’

Source: Marvel Studio

What was Ursa Major actually thinking during his brief appearance in Black Widow? Alexei Shostakov gained notoriety as Red Guardian, a powerful soldier. Even toys for kids with the figure wearing a uniform were produced. It is likely that everyone in Russia was aware of the man’s accomplishments, including his extraordinary strength.

However, Ursa Major strolls over to Alexei in jail and starts to make fun of him in front of him before starting an arm-wrestling contest. And yes, Ursa is a very large man. But when Alexei snaps the bearded brute’s arm like a twig, spectators can’t help but feel awful for him. Maybe you shouldn’t mock a super-soldier before you let him grab your hand. It appears to be the only method ever used.

13. Wilfred Nagel In ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’

Source: Marvel Studio

Before passing away, Wilfred Nagel appeared in just one MCU scene, and he came out as a very resentful and pompous man. At one point, he even refers to himself as a “god.” That’s not typical. It is apparent that Nagel was a genius-level scientist who was in charge of reproducing and upgrading Abraham Erskine’s Super Soldier Serum.

But what sort of moron is hostile to the men who are keeping him at gunpoint on the outside? Be angry with the world, sure. Be angry with Thanos for taking you away for five years. However, being picky when men are holding a piece to your head? Nagel may have been extremely clever, but it was clear that he struggled to relate to people on a basic level.

14. Loud Jerk In ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

Source: Marvel Studio

Let’s go. Loud Jerk is the single name of his persona. You can tell this man doesn’t hold anything back by his title. In his one moment in the MCU, he belittles the sacrifice made by troops during World War II, shouts at the screen, and beats up a man who is practically half his size. And even attempts to assault a uniformed man when Bucky arrives to defend the small Steve Rogers! Who exactly does this guy think he is?

It’s ironic since he didn’t even do a very good job of beating Rogers up in the alleyway. Rogers is listed as being a massive 5’7″ and 110 pounds on his recruitment paperwork from Captain America: The First Avenger, yet the Loud Jerk couldn’t even hold him on his butt. He may lack composure, but it is also obvious that he lacks fighting ability.
