Beyond Marvel: these actors shared scenes outside the franchise – movie news

Not only are they companions fighting evil, they have also collaborated in other missions beyond The House of Ideas.

The Marvel family has not stopped growing in the last ten years. The cinematic universe created by Kevin Feige is made up of dozens of members willing to pitch in to finish off the villain on duty, in addition to the all-powerful Avengers. It is a decade of action in which the franchise has constantly expanded and we can already speak of a staff of 50 actors and actresses, plus those to come.

With this number, it is normal that more than one has coincided in another project and here we have compiled them. Marvel members who shared scenes in other movies.

Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson (‘Nanny’s Diary’, ‘The Perfect Score’)


Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson have a beautiful friendship behind the scenes and this chemistry may have helped them work together on more than one occasion. Because not only have they been Captain America and Black Widow, two of the most important Avengers of the group, they also worked together in Diary of a babysitter in 2007 and The Perfect Score in 2004.

When they agreed on The Perfect Score, she was already known for her role in Lost in Translation, Ghost World O The girl of the pearl and he had participated in It’s not another stupid American movie. They hit it off, but their friendship would end Diary of a babysitter, where they played a couple and came to kiss, something that they have always commented with laughter in subsequent interviews.

‘In the heart of the sea’ (Tom Holland and Chris Hemsworth)


Shortly before debuting in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland coincided with Chris Hemsworth in In the heart of the sea. The funny thing is that Thor and Spider-Man did not coincide on that feature film, but would have to wait until 2018, when they worked on Avengers: Infinity War.

In the heart of the sea tells the true story of the sinking of the Essex Whaler. Hemsworth plays an experienced first mate who leads the crew and Holland is Thomas Nickerson, a young man who becomes the last survivor of the event.

Hank Williams, a voice adrift (Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston)


Hank Williams, a voice adrift is a film that allowed Tom Hiddleston to explore his more musical side, as he plays the mythical figure of country Hank Williams. It is a film that tells the success of Williams, but also the life of excesses that led him to die at the age of 29.

The film also caused the eternal Loki to meet Elizabeth Olsen, who would become his partner and partner in the cinematic universe. Companions, yes, but they don’t have a scene together. Avengers: Infinity War It is the only film in which the actors who give life to Loki and Scarlet Witch share credits.

Oldboy (Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen and Samuel L. Jackson)


Oldboy is a movie -remake ‘by Park Chan-Wook- that served as an excuse to unite three actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On the one hand we have Josh Brolin (Thanos), the protagonist full of rage and desire for revenge, also appears Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), who plays the nurse who helps him, and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), the terrible baddie.

A trio of aces that we have seen in Marvel movies, although with a very different style and without stories so directly intertwined.

Chef (Scarlett Johansson, Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr.)


In 2014 Jon Favreau released #Chef, a film that grew out of the director’s passion for gastronomy. It is a romantic film about a cook who opens a food truck and regains his creative streak. Favreau, in addition to directing it, stars in it and is the culprit that in the same film appear himself, Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson, three actors who have shared great moments in the MCU like Happy, Iron Man and Black Widow.

It’s also not surprising, as Favreau and Downey are great friends in real life and Johansson shouldn’t be left behind.

Scott Pilgrim (Brie Larson y Chris Evans)


We now know Brie Larson as the wonderful Captain Marvel which is capable of controlling any dangerous situation. And Evans is undoubtedly our beloved Captain America. Well, a long, long time ago they participated in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World -specifically in 2010-. He as Lucas Lee, one of the enemies that Scott has to defeat, and she as Envy, the protagonist’s ex-girlfriend.

Zodiac (Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr. y Jake Gyllenhaal)


Mark Ruffalo Y Robert Downey Jr. joined forces to defeat Thanos – and many other villains – in Avengers: Endgame, but before that they hunted other types of enemies. On Zodiac, play detective Dave Toschi and journalist Paul Avery, two of those who are on the trail of the serial killer known as the Zodiac.

There is also Jake Gyllenhaal, Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which gives life to a cartoonist from the San Francisco Chronicle. He hasn’t interacted much with Iron Man or the Hulk in the MCU, but in this film he has a lot of weight.

Star Trek (Zoe Saldana, Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba y Karl Urban)


If we stay within the science fiction genre, it is very curious to see that in Star Trek many Marvel names have coincided. At one point or another, the Enterprise saga has featured Zoe Saldana, Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba and Karl Urban. Or what is the same, Gamora, Thor, Doctor Strange, Heimdall and Skurge. Although in the famous superhero franchise they do not share many scenes either, it is curious to see how two of the great sagas of the genre have brought together the same actors and actresses.

Kong: Skull Island (Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson)


Samuel L. Jackson is one of the few veterans of the UCM that has a leading role in Captain Marvel. Set in 1995, it gives us the opportunity to explore a young Nick Fury, who tries to find out who is Carol Danvers, the member of the Starforce who has crashed on Earth. But it is not the first time that Larson and Jackson have met on screen.

They also worked together in 2017 on Kong: Skull Island, as members of the expedition that wants to investigate Skull Island. Joining them is also Tom Hiddleston, in a less confusing role than Loki.

Men in Black: International (Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson)


Tessa Thompson Y Chris Hemsworth they worked together in Thor: Ragnarok -She was Valkyrie and he, obviously, the God of Thunder- and they must have had a great time because they repeated as companions in Men in Black: International in 2019, two years after his Marvel adventure. The two have a lot of chemistry, you just have to see how much fun they have in the promotional interviews they did for the film.
