Actors Who Are Begging To Return To The MCU

With MCU bringing out incredible plotlines, characters, and cast, anyone who knows nothing about filmmaking, acting, or anything else useful to the studio would want to be a part of it. So it’s not surprising actors begging to come back to the MCU. The studio has over 20 films and a box office revenue of $22.93 billion worldwide as of August 2021. And that makes the MCU franchise the highest-grossing franchise. It is evident from Avengers: Endgame that fans love seeing superheroes become a team. But not all heroes and villains from the comics have made it to the big screen until the story demanded. However, these actors really want to return to the MCU. Check out who these actors are:

1. Elodie Yung played the character Elektra in the Netflix series, Daredevil. The series introduced us to the powerful assassin and Matt Murdock’s, aka Daredevil’s, love interest. She also appeared in The Defenders as a vigilante and an antagonist. During Wizard World Virtual Experiences 2020, the actress expressed her enthusiasm to play the character again.

2. Sterling K. Brown played the role of Prince N’Jobu in Black Panther. Prince N’Jobu was Erik Killmonger’s father and T’Challa’s uncle. It is safe to say that his role in the plot does seem like a one-time deal, even though it was very significant for the storyline. Fans have been asking Brown if he would be reappearing in the MCU movies/shows; he tweeted the following:

3. Olga Kurylenko starred in this year’s most-awaited superhero movie, Black Widow. She played the role of Antonia Dreykov, aka Taskmaster, who is the daughter of General Dreykov. The movie showed a different angle, and she was finally free from her father’s mind-control. However, the character is now at a different turn, and there’s possibly more to be explored. Olga Kurylenko, in an interview, said, “too valuable and too skillful [for Marvel Studios] to let go,” and wants to return to the MCU.

4. Josh Brolin brought to life one of the most dangerous and significant villains in the MCU. He has also played the role of a mutant, Cable, in Deadpool 2. Thus, he has appeared in multiple films and is loved by fans. The actor loved playing Cable and is “itching” to play the role again.

5. Ty Simpkins played the role of the teenager Harley Keener, who later became Iron Man’s protégé in Iron Man 3. The character’s appearance in the movie was totally unexpected. The actor told IGN in an interview that he was too excited for his role in the movie, and he loved playing the role too. With Tony Stark now gone, there’s a void left to be filled. And Ty Simpkins is happy to take the mantle.

6. David Harbour’s portrayal of the Red Guardian was incredible. The character’s version in the movie is quite different from that of the comic book version. However, David Harbour loved playing the role and also mentioned in an interview that “one of the biggest gigs of his life.” While talking about reprising his role, he said, “I’m down for more,” and also suggested scenarios where Red Guardian might appear.

Even though the Netflix shows and the MCU storylines are different, fans still hope that these characters appear in the MCU movies/shows. On this thought, Vincent D’Onofrio said that he’s ecstatic to return to the MCU and is waiting for an opportunity.
