The Tony Awards is one of the most prestigious events in Hollywood. It recognizes and celebrates the efforts and artistry of performers and creators in the field of theater. There are many well-known celebrities, directors, and writers who have received this award, including our beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe cast.
Indeed, we have the best actors and actresses in the Marvel fandom. There is no doubt why MCU films are successful – they are graced with performers that possess incredible talents. So, who are these Marvel actors with Tony Awards nominations? Let’s find out:
Mark Ruffalo is known for his role as Bruce Banner/Hulk, and he has been in the MCU since 2012’s The Avengers. His character is one of the most important members of the Avengers squad. He also made an appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, and will soon star in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
The actor received his Tony nomination in 2006 as Best Featured Actor in a Play for Awake and Sing! Ruffalo portrayed Moe, the Berger’s family friend who came to live with them during The Great Depression in the Bronx.
Natasha Romanoff is undeniably the most popular female MCU character, and one of the earliest heroes introduced. She appeared in a total of nine films, and the solo movie Black Widow. Her character presents a very complex yet compelling story and one of the most well-progressed throughout her appearance in MCU.
Johansson made her theater debut in Gregory Mosher’s A View From The Bridge in 2010. She played Catherine, a young lady who wishes to get out of her controlling uncle’s hands. This earned the actress her Tony Awards for Best Featured Actress in a Play.
Danai Gurira is known for her role as Michonne in the hit AMC show The Walking Dead until she joined the cast of Black Panther and became T’Challa’s right-hand soldier, Okoye. She also appeared in the final installments of the Avengers films, Infinity War and Endgame.
Gurira’s Tony nomination is not for acting in a play but for writing one. She penned Eclipsed, which received Best Play in 2016. The story follows Liberian women’s struggle for survival in the Second Liberian Civil War.
Blanchett’s role as Hela in Thor: Ragnarok proved her as one of the most vicious villains in the MCU. She is the long-lost sister of Thor and Loki, and her most unforgettable scene is undeniably crushing Mjolnir with her bare hands.
The actress’s debut on Broadway was in Andrew Upton’s The Present where she garnered her first Tony nomination for Best Actress in a Play. Blanchett played the character of a widow.
Andrew Garfield recently made his appearance in MCU’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, and it delighted the fans seeing him team up with his Spider-bros. We know him from the same role in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man series.
Garfield received two Tony Awards nominations, first in 2012 for Best Featured Actor in a Play for Death of a Salesman. The second was in 2018 for Best Leading Actor in a Play for Angels in America.
