10 Badly Miscast Actors In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Not everyone ends up pulling a Robert Downey Jr., you know.

At this rate, by the year 2030, every single actor in Hollywood will have probably had a part - or something to do with - the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because doesn't it kind of feel a bit like that already? Absolutely everybody, from high ranking masters of their craft such as Sir Ben Kingsley, to fresh-faced pretty boys like Chris Hemsworth, have found their way into the world's biggest film franchise.

And for that most part, it's a good thing, because the MCU often allows actors of all types the chance to show a new side to themselves; to try something different. Still, not everyone who enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe ends up gelling with the established world as well as they might've hoped - and some actors who might've seemed perfect for their roles sometimes up being anything but suitable.

They look out of place, or fail to make an impression, or don't seem to understand that they're in a comic book movie. Join us, then, as we take a look at the 10 most miscast actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date - actors who, unlike Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Tom Hiddleston, seem like they don't belong.
