The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most successful movie franchise in history, but even the often discussed "Marvel machine" couldn't stop these bloopers from happening. Marvel Studios has been releasing some of the biggest movies on an annual basis since 2008, and it's all part of one giant shared universe of connectivity.
However, pulling off success at this magnitude is no easy task. Every single MCU film goes through a similar production timeline, barring rare exceptions like Iron Man 2's rushed development, or the last second director switch on Ant-Man. After going through development and pre-production, Marvel Studios traditionally begins filming their movies about a year out from their intended release dates. Once filming begins, it's up to the directors and actors to deliver an adequate product, but not everything can go according to plan.

Screen Rant's latest video takes a look at 25 bloopers from Marvel movies, but in more ways than one. While most associate movie bloopers with takes that have gone bad, there are also small mistakes that can be made too that fit this definition. The video contains bloopers of all kinds, whether it's a stray goat causing Danai Gurira to break character in Avengers: Infinity War or using cassette tapes for Awesome Mix Vol 1 & 2 that weren't even created yet. Check out the video at the top of this post for all of our selections.
Traditional movie bloopers are impossible to avoid no matter how much planning or preparation is taken, as some are even just the result of actors breaking character for a joke just to add some levity to the long days of filming. These types of videos are often times attached to the home release of Marvel movies too, such as the one for Infinity War. As for the other types of bloopers, these are just constant reminders that there's always something that gets overlooked when making movies of this size.
Thankfully, all of these bloopers are either so minor they don't really matter or just great ways to get an inside look at the production of a Marvel film. These are the biggest movies in the world in many cases, so even though there can be a certain amount of pressure that comes with that, it's nice to see the actors still enjoying their time on the set. If they aren't having fun bringing these characters to life and creating these movies, it could come through in their performances and negatively impact the films. So, whether you're watching actual bloopers or spot a minor oversight, just enjoy them for what they are.
