Total Nerd The Cast Of The Avengers In Their Earliest Roles Looks Totally Different

With nearly a decade of films under its belt, the Marvel Cinematic Universe produced a group of actors who can't quite escape their association with the world of the Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man. But the video below shows you what your beloved Avengers looked like in their very first roles.

For example, Chris Evans, who catapulted to superstar status with Captain America: The First Avenger, actually debuted onscreen in 1997, looking much different from the chiseled defender of Earth-616.

Perhaps you want to dip into the '80s, when Josh Brolin and Mark Ruffalo appear as teenagers without a clue they'll have to defend the world from Thanos in the next thirty years. Veteran Samuel L. Jackson gets the throwback of a lifetime, debuting in his first film in 1977.

Watch the video below to see how your favorite actors looked before they gained their powers. Who do you think changed the most since their first role?
