Have These Marvel Characters Appeared In The MCU Yet?
Back in the beginning, there was only a billionaire playboy named Tony Stark, who got stranded in a cave with a box of scraps and transformed himself into Iron Man. But then Nick Fury, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor, and Captain America swiftly followed, and before the box office knew what had hit it, the Avengers — and the Marvel Cinematic Universe — had been born.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU for short, transformed big budget movie making as we know it. It has taken Stan Lee’s original concept of a shared universe, where every story takes place in the same reality, and made it into the model for every major cinematic franchise today. The MCU is populated by dozens upon dozens of characters, both famous and not-so-famous, with new ones popping in all of the time. It’s a world where not only is Captain America fighting Hydra, but Daredevil and the Defenders are patrolling the streets of NYC, Spider-Man is swinging between buildings, Cloak and Dagger are getting their powers, and even oddballs like Groot are saving the galaxy.
Soon, the ultimate crossover of the MCU, known as Avengers: Infinity War, will hit theaters. But though the MCU has incorporated so many characters into its mythology, there are still hundreds of Marvel heroes and villains who have yet to appear within this famous shared world. Now, we face you with a simple yes or no question: Have These Marvel Characters Appeared In The Marvel Cinematic Universe Yet?
