Avengers: Endgame packed more superheroes and super villains into its three-hour runtime than any previous comic book movie had done before it. In addition to the obvious, the film includes several brief appearances from characters from all across the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If ya blink, ya miss ’em. So yes, there are more cameos than you probably noticed the first time… or even the second and third!
But worry not. We’re here to sort it all out for you. In an exclusive clip from the digital and Blu-ray release of Endgame, this special feature highlights all the cameos that even the most hardcore MCU fan might have missed.
Among these cameos is Howard the Duck, who makes a quick appearance in the big final battle. This is only fitting, as Howard was Marvel’s first character to make it onto the big screen (not counting the 1944 Captain America serial film) way back in 1986. Comic book legend, and creator of Thanos, Jim Starlin shows up in the post-Snap support group, along with the film’s co-director Joe Russo. In fact, Lia Russo, Joe’s daughter, also appears taking a selfie with the Hulk. Meanwhile, Joe Russo’s other daughter Ava appears as Clint Barton’s kid Lila Barton in the opening scenes of the movie.
As with most movies directed by the Russo brothers, there are a couple of brief moments from former cast members of the show Community, which the filmmakers worked on extensively back in the day. And although the Marvel Studios films almost always tend to ignore their television counterparts like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Daredevil (despite taking place in the same universe), Avengers: Endgame did give us two character cameos from the late, great Agent Carter series. Proving that is indeed all connected. There are other cameos I haven’t mentioned yet, so be sure to check out the entire video above.
Avengers: Endgame is available for digital download now, and hits Blu-ray on August 13.
