Since its inception circa Jon Favreau’s 2008 offering Iron Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been staffed by some impressive onscreen talent. Whether it’s mainstream megastars like Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, and er, Jeremy Renner, or beloved indie figures like Mark Ruffalo, Jeff Bridges, and Michael B. Jordan, the superhero series has attracted all manner of megawatt star power throughout its twenty-four (and counting) film run.

That impressive cast list is only growing with recent instalments such as last year’s Spiderman: Far From Home and the forthcoming Black Widow introducing the likes of Jake Gyllenhall, Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, and Florence Pugh into the fold. But not all of the Avengers actor’s achievements have been so widely beloved.

During their long careers, almost every major MCU star has had a regrettable misstep or two. Whether it’s a big-budget misfire, an ill-considered indie, or a career spent bouncing between these two extremes before finally landing on the safety of superhero spandex, here are a few films hidden in the back catalogues of Marvel’s heroes which prove their screen careers weren’t always destined to be so super.
