Small Details Fans Noticed About Underrated MCU Characters

List Rules
Vote up the details you never noticed before.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, not everyone can be an iconic hero like Captain America or an epic villain like Thanos. That doesn't mean these smaller characters are irrelevant, though. In fact, it's quite the opposite. To help shed some light on what makes the more underrated faces of the MCU so amazing, fans online are sharing all kinds of incredible small details about them. For example, in Avengers: Endgame, when Korg bums around with the depressed, out-of-shape Thor, if you look closely you can see he's actually growing moss on his rocky form. Sometimes these details blend right into the background. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, before Drax sneaks up on Quill aboard the Milano, you can actually see him blending into his surroundings. There are even examples that span across several movies. In Doctor Strange, Wong suggests to Stephen that people only think he's funny because they work for him. Several movies later, in Infinity War, Doctor Strange fires a similar insult at Tony Stark!

Check out this list of small details fans noticed about underrated characters in the MCU, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    From Redditor u/xandry123:

    In Avengers: Age of Ultron, when the Maximoff twins go to intimidate Klaue, Quicksilver not only dismantles the gun and keeps the bullets on the table, but also catches the bullet fired and attaches it to the shell. That is why we do not hear a shell falling down.
