17 actors you forgot were in the MCU, from Doctor Who alumni to Shazam
Reeling off the leading lights of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is almost second nature at this point. The likes of Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Hemsworth are ingrained in our cultural consciousness as much as the heroes they portray. Every Hollywood superstar now wants a bite of that Marvel apple, with the likes of Angelina Jolie stepping up for Marvel Phase 4 as part of The Eternals.
Côtes-d'Armor. Christian Louboutin bought the Garden of Kerdalo
© West-France in 2005, the gardens of Kerdalo, located in Tredarzec (Côtes-d'Armor) obtained the label "Remarkable Garden" and were enrolled in 2007 at the Inventory of historical monuments. in Tredarzec, in the Côtes-d'Armor, the Kerdalo garden was for sale for several months. This is the famous French sigher Christian Louboutin who bought the place. This is a page that turns to Tredarzec, in the Côtes-d'Armor.
But what about the forgotten faces of the MCU? The actors who ended up finding fame or fortune elsewhere or had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo appearance before exiting stage right, never to be seen in a comic book caper again – what about them? Here at GamesRadar, we’ve rounded up 17 actors you forgot were in the MCU, including Doctor Who legends, Game of Thrones villains, and even one of DC’s best and brightest superheroes.
David Bradley (Captain America: The First Avenger)
Perhaps best known for his turn as the cantankerous, backstabbing Walder Frey in Game of Thrones, the instigator of the Red Wedding also has a minor role to play in Captain America: The First Avenger as guardian of the Tesseract.
Hundreds join Johnny Mercer in London march in support of veterans
A rally of bikers from campaign group Rolling Thunder UK were among supporters at Parliament Square in central London on Saturday. They rode in their droves into the capital and assembled close to the statue of Sir Winston Churchill outside Parliament as demonstrators waved flags and brandished placards, with one banner saying “stop vexatious trials of vets”.A crowd gathered as Mr Mercer was joined on stage by British soldier Dennis Hutchings to give a speech.
Unfortunately for Bradley’s character, Red Skull eventually tracks down the mystical container, which houses the Space Stone, and kills him. Not content with ticking off the MCU and Game of Thrones on his heaving franchise checklist, the English actor also appeared in Harry Potter as Argus Filch and Doctor Who as the First Doctor in the Peter Capaldi’s final episode in 2017.
Natalie Dormer (Captain America: The First Avenger)
Serving as Captain America’s canonical first kiss in the MCU (how’s that for an extremely specific quiz question?), Natalie Dormer’s Lorraine only had a bit-part to play in The First Avenger, in which she tried to seduce an uncomfortable Steve Rogers. Peggy – of course – eventually saves the embarrassed Cap. Dormer, meanwhile, would go on to bigger and better things, as the scheming queen Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones.
Fear the Walking Dead bosses discuss Grace twist
"We wanted to be realistic with the truth."Fear the Walking Dead delivered a heartbreaking experience with its latest episode, one that saw Grace explore a potential future in a dream sequence.
Community cast (Various)
The Russos never forget their friends. Having seen great success as directors of Community, the directing duo managed to squeeze in a few cameos from the show in their MCU movies.
Danny Pudi (Abed) has a walk-on role as a helpful SHIELD worker in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Greendale’s very own Dean, Jim Rash, appears in Captain America: Civil War as a MIT staff member. Avengers: Endgame rounds out some more of the cast, with Ken Jeong playing the security attendant who lets Scott Lang out of the lockup, and Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley) plays a SHIELD agent back in the 1970s causing trouble for a snooping Cap. Community’s most favourite son, meanwhile, can be seen later on in this list…
Zachary Levi (Thor: The Dark World)
Shazam himself is part of the MCU. Well, not quite, but the actor who plays Billy Batson, Zachary Levi, appears as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World. Confusingly, the star (who is perhaps best known for his breakout role in Chuck) was originally cast in the first Thor, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. His replacement, Joshua Dallas, couldn’t do the sequel due to, you guessed it, scheduling conflicts. Levi made one final appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, being killed off by Cate Blanchett’s Hela. What a way to go.
Kate Mara (Iron Man 2)
Kate Mara, who would later go on to appear as Sue Richards in the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot, dipped her toe into the superhero waters with Iron Man 2. In the superhero sequel, she plays a U.S. Marshal who hands a subpoena to a distracted Tony Stark and… that’s it. A far cry from her later starmaking performance as Zoe Barnes in House of Cards.
Sylvester Stallone (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2)
Yo, Guardians, we did it! In perhaps the MCU’s best cameo, the star of Rocky, Rambo, and countless other classic movies, appears in the Guardians sequel as one of the leaders of the Ravagers, Yondu’s old crew. Unfortunately, the gang – which also includes another member on this list – haven’t appeared again after reuniting in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but you can never keep Stallone down for the count.
The Walking Dead Disney Plus: Why is The Walking Dead leaving Fox?
THE WALKING DEAD fans have just discovered the post-apocalyptic series has found a new home. Why is TWD leaving Fox?The Walking Dead has been airing on Fox and AMC, but fans have come to learn it has since found a new home. They are waiting for the highly-anticipated season 11 to air in August 2021. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about where to find the new season.
Michelle Yeoh (Guardians of the Galaxy 2)
Michelle Yeoh has been killing it on screens for decades now, from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, all the way up to Star Trek Discovery. She doesn’t look like she suffers fools gladly in her brief MCU appearance, either. Yeoh plays an ex-Ravager (and wife of Sylvester Stallone’s character) and finds herself teaming up with her old comrades for a spin-off in the stars that we’ll probably never get to see.
Nathan Fillion (Guardians of the Galaxy)
Another Guardians cameo appearance from someone who knows their way around a spaceship. Nathan Fillion made his name in Firefly, though even the most dedicated fans of the Serenity would be hard-pressed to recognise Fillion. He voices the blue-skinned inmate who gets forcibly picked up by the nose during the prison sequence.
Olivia Munn (Iron Man 2)
To put Olivia Munn in such a sparse role in the MCU feels like a disservice – but that was the case for Iron Man 2. She was originally cast as a prominent fling of Tony Stark’s, and that got downgraded further to the role of newscaster during the movie’s opening at the Stark Expo. Munn caught the superhero bug, however, and went on to play Psylocke in X-Men Apocalypse.

An exhibition is scheduled for June 12-22, 2021. in his base of Loguivy-de-la-Mer (Côtes-d'Armor), Patrick Boudier prepares the executives of his photographs.
Harry Dean Stanton (The Avengers)
A bonafide movie legend, the late Harry Dean Stanton starred in everything from Alien, to The Godfather Part II, to the Green Mile. In 2012’s The Avengers, Stanton plays a security guard who befriends Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner after he falls through an abandoned warehouse. The pair briefly chat in one of the movie’s quieter scenes, with Stanton’s character nudging Banner into meeting up with Tony Stark.
Donald Glover (Spider-Man: Homecoming)
It’s not often you can forget Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, aka Troy in Community, yet his bit-part in Spider-Man: Homecoming (playing Miles Morales’ uncle, Aaron Davis, no less) swung on by without much consequence. Whether this loose thread will get picked up again in future Spidey sequels remains to be seen, though it would be a shame to see such the talented singer-turned-actor consigned to just a handful of lines.
Martin Starr (various)
Remember the geeky bespectacled kid in Judd Apatow’s cult comedy series, Freaks and Geeks? He went on to play, uhh, a geeky college student in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. In a fantastic retcon, that character becomes the teacher that escorts Peter Parker’s class around Europe in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Jenna Coleman (Captain America: The First Avenger)
Doctor Who fans will instantly recognise Jenna Coleman from her turn as the Time Lord’s assistant Clara Oswald. She’s a little harder to pick out in the first Captain America, though, as she’s gone in a flash and only has a few lines. Coleman plays Bucky Barnes’ date, Connie, and appears very briefly during a scene at the Stark Expo.
Ross Marquand (Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame)
The Red Skull changed actors in the near-decade between The First Avenger and Avengers: Infinity War. Hugo Weaving took his leave and in came Ross Marquand. The difference between the pair is almost indistinguishable, so it’s no surprise when many were left surprised that it was actually The Walking Dead’s Aaron caked underneath all that makeup.
The Walking Dead season 11 will be the final season in the long running zombie saga, and is expected to introduce the Commonwealth. In the comics, the Commonwealth is a sophisticated society with tens of thousands of inhabitants, and advanced technology. It also has its own army, which Mercer leads. Naturally, in true The Walking Dead style, not everything is as perfect as it seems on the surface – there's a strict class system, which could prove problematic as the series progresses.
While the main installment of the franchise is ending soon, the story is set to continue in a trilogy of Walking Dead movies – which Robert Kirkman recently gave an update on – and a number of spinoffs, including one focused on Carol and Daryl.
Andrew Lincoln also recently told our sister publication SFX Magazine that he wouldn't turn down a return as Rick Grimes in the main series: "The easy answer is I have no idea. I don't think it's written yet, but I would never say never to that because everybody that's still doing the TV show are dear friends, and it's an extraordinary feat that they're still going and making this beautiful and ground-breaking show that still resonates with the world."
So far, there's no full length trailer for season 11, but there has been a mysterious teaser which seems to show the Commonwealth – with a voiceover, most likely from Mercer, asking Eugene a series of questions.
The Walking Dead season 11 is divided into three parts, with the first set of episodes arriving August 22. Until then, check out the best Netflix shows to watch now – and if you're in the UK, you can stream all of The Walking Dead on Disney Plus Star from July 2.
