Solo movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe tend to have cameo appearances from other characters as a way of connecting all the stories together: Doctor Strange showed up in Thor: Ragnarok, the Falcon showed up in Ant-Man etc. The next installment in the MCU – the one that has to follow up the epic Avengers: Endgame – is Spider-Man: Far From Home.
We already know that the movie will feature Nick Fury and Maria Hill, but thanks to the multiverse, we could be seeing a bunch more characters. So, here are 10 MCU Cameos We Hope To See In Spider-Man: Far From Home.
10 Captain America
Sure, we just saw Steve Rogers’ emotional send-off at the end of Avengers: Endgame, but we need more of those cheesy PSAs! They made up one of the funniest parts of Spider-Man: Homecoming and, although Cap going into the past to live out his entire life probably should’ve screwed up the timeline in a very major way, it would be really fun to see some more of them.
We know he shot a bunch of them, because in the post-credits scene where he talks about the virtues of patience, he asks the off-camera crew members how many more he has to do. He shot so many of them that he got bored, so this could become a connecting running joke that ties Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy together, like the Bruce Campbell cameos in the Sam Raimi trilogy.
9 The Vulture
It has been confirmed by Marvel that Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. the Vulture, will not be appearing in Spider-Man: Far From Home. However, we’ve learned to take everything that the studio says with a pinch of salt, since they’ve been known to lie to us, so some fans are still hoping to see the character return in the sequel.
The last time we saw him, he was in prison with Mac Gargan, who told him that if he knew Spidey’s true identity, he could get him killed. Despite knowing Spidey’s true identity, Toomes keeps his mouth shut. Fans are still desperate to know why Toomes didn’t give Spidey up: is it because he rescued him, or simply because he’s saving him for himself? Far From Home should answer this.
8 Professor Hulk
When it was stipulated in Sony’s conditions for the MCU’s Spider-Man solo movie that everyone’s favorite web-slinger had to share the spotlight with another Avenger, Marvel’s first choice was Bruce Banner. However, they ended up going with Tony Stark, a decision that clearly paid off in spades.
With Tony gone and Spidey left to deal with the hole torn in reality on his own, maybe now is the perfect time to introduce him to Banner. After all, we did recently discover that Banner has become Professor Hulk, a combination of the best of both personalities that has fans clamoring for more. It would be cool to see him show up to teach Peter some science in Far From Home.
7 Morgan Stark
Since Tony Stark’s tragic passing at the end of Avengers: Endgame, some fans have theorized that Peter Parker will become sort of like a big brother to Tony’s daughter Morgan Stark. Tony wasn’t actually Peter’s dad, but he might as well have been. Peter’s dad died when he was very young, and his adoptive father Uncle Ben also died when he was relatively young, so Stark has been the closest thing he has to a father for a few years now.
He never actually met Morgan, because he was dead for the five years she’s been alive, but maybe he could meet her in Far From Home. Whether or not it’ll actually happen is up to the filmmakers, but it would be really sweet.
6 Aaron Davis
Aaron Davis made a minor appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming, played by Donald Glover. We see him involved in the Vulture’s arms trade and he mentions that he has a nephew living in the area.
In the comics, Davis’ nephew is called Miles Morales, who, like Peter Parker, was bitten by a radioactive spider and given the powers of an arachnid. Morales is the version of Spider-Man who starred in the excellent Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. With the multiverse opening up in Spider-Man: Far From Home, we could see not only Aaron Davis, who is the villain the Prowler in the comics, but Miles Morales as an alternate version of Spidey.
Fans expected Loki to be alive again by the closing minutes of Avengers: Endgame, but the leading theory was that he used a projection when he stabbed Thanos and got himself killed in Infinity War, based on the fact that he used his left hand instead of his right.
Now, while that still may have been the case, it doesn’t actually matter, because Loki took the Space Stone and disappeared into an alternate reality back in 2012 midway through Endgame. Far From Home’s multiverse could briefly reveal the timeline that he ended up in ahead of his Disney+ series.
4 Pepper Potts
Peter Parker and Pepper Potts now have two things in common: alliterative “P” names and mourning the loss of Tony Stark. (They also fought together in the final battle in Endgame in the “girl power” moment.) Losing someone is never easy, but it becomes a little easier when you have someone to share your emotions with.
Peter and Pepper are both dealing with the same loss, so maybe they’ll help each other overcome it. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, but it could just be an early scene where they grab coffee and talk about how they’ve been coping since Tony died.
3 Doctor Strange
Spider-Man: Homecoming began by showing the Berlin airport showdown in Captain America: Civil War from Peter’s perspective, as he flew out on Stark’s private jet, got given a new high-tech costume, and saw the sights before returning home to Queens.
Perhaps Far From Home will begin by showing us the final battle from Avengers: Endgame from Peter’s perspective, as he’s resurrected on Titan, Doctor Strange tells him five years have passed, and they teleport to Earth to join the fight. The producers of Far From Home claim that it begins “minutes” after the end of Endgame. Maybe this is what they were referring to.
2 Iron Man
Yes, Iron Man died at the end of Avengers: Endgame. But that doesn’t mean he can’t appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Peter Parker is clearly mourning the loss of Tony Stark in the movie, so whether Tony appears to him in a dream sequence, flashback, pre-recorded message, or alternate reality from the multiverse, it would be great to see him return to Peter’s life one last time.
It would serve a dramatic purpose, because Tony could give Peter some timely advice and offer some closure on their surrogate father-son relationship. These two characters shared such a strong relationship in the MCU – they need one more moment together.
1 Stan Lee
It wouldn’t feel like an MCU movie without a Stan Lee cameo. Unfortunately, Lee passed away late last year and we may have seen the last of his on-screen appearances. Joe Russo has said that he was pretty sure Avengers: Endgame featured the last Lee cameo, but Kevin Feige has hinted that there could be more: “We shot a couple of others, so we’re coming up on the last of them.”
Plus, there are plenty of ways to put in a Stan Lee cameo without having any new footage. While fans would rightly feel uncomfortable about Lee being digitally resurrected in the style of Peter Cushing in Rogue One, Marvel has a ton of unused footage of Lee, so they could simply draw on that.
