MCU: 5 Underused Characters We Need To See More Of

No Comments

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is full of great characters – Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner and Thor Odinson to name but a few – all with varying levels of prominence in terms of the size of the parts they have to play.

Of course, the main stars all get to show what they can do and have their moments in the spotlight – some even more than others (Tony Stark, we’re looking at you) – but it’s not like that for everyone.

Some great characters portrayed by brilliant actors are yet to truly shine – either because they haven’t had as much screen time as other characters or because they haven’t had an awful lot to do even when they have been on screen.

Of course, there are plenty of characters who we already know will get their moments in the spotlight (the likes of Thanos, Brock Rumlow and Ulysses Klaue, for example), but others have been around for much longer than those guys and never truly shone or been developed as much as fans would like. This article will list five such characters.

This may seem like a strange inclusion to kick things off, because Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has appeared in seven movies and a television series so far – but he hasn’t really done an awful lot. He tends to just show up, speak a bit, then disappear.

That’s probably a little harsh (he was heavily involved in bringing the Avengers together, after all) but, to explain further, he really hasn’t shown the kind of things the character is capable of in the comic books.

Fury is both a prep god and a relatively normal human who is capable of hanging with super-powered characters in battle. Thus far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – aside from a couple of impromptu shoot-outs – he’s barely seen conflict. Even his part in helping to save the day in Avengers: Age of Ultron was explained away as being Phil Coulson’s doing in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Audiences want to see Fury kicking some serious ass and they want to see him with the kind of plans in place he is famous for in the comic books – whereby he is literally prepared for anything and has stashes of high-tech equipment tucked away in remote, obscure locations around the world (the Savage Land, for example). The fact that he inexplicably won’t be appearing in Captain America: Civil War isn’t helping matters on that front either.
