The Marvel Cinematic Universe is booming at the box office and entertaining millions of moviegoers, but there are still several plot holes in Marvel movies. In trying to tie all the films together, Marvel movie plot holes are bound to happen, but some leaps in logic are harder to swallow than others.
While many Marvel film plot holes are forgivable, there are some Hulk-sized holes that are too big to overlook. Here is a list of the some of the worst plot holes in Marvel movies. Vote up the narrative issues in Marvel Studios films that actually bug you.
Agent Coulson's death in The Avengers helped bring the team together, but now that Coulson is alive, do the Avengers know? Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron and creator of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., considers Coulson to be dead in the movies. But in the show, Coulson's revival is supposedly kept secret from Thor the Avengers. How is that possible?
In S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson carries out missions with Thor's Asgardian friend Sif, so does she keep that a secret from Thor? After Coulson clears undercover Hydra agents from S.H.I.E.L.D., how do Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Cap not know about him?
In Iron Man 3, the Extremis solution can regrow limbs and heal human tissue from nearly any injury. So why hasn't Tony looked into that? It saves Pepper Potts, for crying out loud!
Instead of burying it in the archives, why not perfect it and use it to help heal his allies? Surely a man who can synthesize his own elements can perfect this new breakthrough and use it for the good of all mankind.
In Iron Man 2, Tony Stark discovers a way to synthesize a new element to use in an overhauled arc reactor, replacing the palladium that is poisoning him. This may be vibranium, though some movie fans claim otherwise.
If Stark made an entirely new element, he'd still have the means to access it. Tony's father Howard Stark found enough vibranium to make Captain America's shield and Tony was aware of Ulysses Klaw's smuggling of the stuff from his arms-dealing days. So if Tony knows how powerful vibranium is, why doesn't he make at least one indestructible suit out of it?
