Actors that should have been given better roles in Marvel movies.

Being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe can make someone a star, but a surprising number of already established actors have found themselves in small roles. We’ll take a look at some underutilized actors, and talk about why Katherine Langford’s cameo ended up being cut from Avengers: Endgame. Thor: Ragnarok had tons of big name stars in it, including Matt Damon and Sam Neill, but their scene couldn’t have been any shorter. Rachel McAdams took a role Jessica Chastain turned down and it’s not hard to see why she would have passed on the part of Christine Palmer. Mads Mikkelsen portrayed Kaecilius in Doctor Strange, but he was almost an on screen member of the Fantastic Four. Ben Kingsely is a phenomenal star who played one of the most controversial characters in the entire MCU. Donald Glover made an amazing cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but considering his love of comic books he really should have had a bigger part. Djimon Hounsou has been in plenty of superhero movies but hasn’t had a part big enough to showcase his talent.
