Given how successful the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its other third-party rights-holding franchises have been over the past decade or so, there could come a time when every single actor working in Hollywood has been involved in one of their movies somehow.

It all stands to reason, of course - comic book movies are where the money is these days, and Marvel still leads the way in terms of multi-branched movie series. Even the worst examples of the MCU, Spider-Man sequels and X-Men movies tend to make enough money to make continued chapters inevitable. The longer that goes on, the more likely even more starry figures start turning up. Even in such seemingly unprecedented cameos as that Thor: Ragnarok one.
