The Real Reasons These Actors Are No Longer Part Of The MCU
Sadly, not every actor who joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe ends up sticking around. Some become unhappy with Marvel, some fall out of love with blockbusters altogether, and some become victims of scheduling conflicts. These are the reasons some of the MCU’s key players have said farewell to that universe.
A lot of fans were surprised when Marvel Studios announced in 2010 that it wouldn't ask Incredible Hulk star Edward Norton to reprise his role in Avengers. The company put out a press release saying, in part:
"Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members."
Norton's agent called the statement "offensive" and claimed the studio unexpectedly cut off negotiations. Norton changed his story over the years, telling NPR in 2014 that he chose to leave the role because he wanted more diversity in his career.
Before 2010 there was already bad blood between Norton and Marvel. Norton signed on to the lead in The Incredible Hulk under the condition that he could rewrite Zak Penn's script. Marvel agreed and while Norton's added scenes were filmed, most were cut before release. Two months before the movie’s premiere, Entertainment Weekly reported Norton was refusing to do press for the film.
And the break with Marvel still appears to be on Norton's mind. In July 2018 - just over a decade after Incredible Hulk's release - he took a swipe at Marvel during Comedy Central's Roast of Bruce Willis.
Tim Roth, who played The Incredible Hulk’s main villain Emil Blonsky, has revealed in the past that Marvel actually considered bringing him back for the sequel to The Avengers.
It isn't clear from what Roth said whether they were considering Abomination as the main villain, or if he would have been working with Ultron. Roth has since said he isn't confident about returning to the MCU, and considering the unlikelihood of a Hulk sequel, his doubts are understandable. Keep watching the video to see the real reasons these actors are no longer part of the MCU!

    The people from Marvel said that next year they will release another Thor movie, in which Natalie Portman will appear as a female Thor AND Valkyrie will NOT be the girlfriend of Thor and I dont think that was ever an option.

    Edward Norton is a beast of an actor... so underated... I feel sorry for people who only know him from that Hulk movie. I mean Ruffalo is a good Hulk, but lets be honest... Hulk is no one's favorite from MCU.. bad constructed caracter... so edward don't lied when he said it needed a better script...

    Fandral was played by Josh Dallas in the first Thor movie Levi replaced him in the other 2. I didn’t notice it until I re-watched the movies.

  • ggsooyoun

    Speaking of Thor movies: How about Josh Dallas being the original Fandral Or where the hell Sif was during Ragnarok AND WHERES DARCY??!

    The absolute cheek of Natalie Portman. She’ll happily come back and play female Thor though right? With a fatter paycheck? HYPOCRITE

    Lets face it, over half of these actors didn't come back because they were greedy or political about it. They don't actually care about movies anymore. Smh

    I miss norton, it felt like he wanted to make bruce banner a real character and was hoping to make him a real emotional center. I don't hate ruffalo, but I don't see him as conflicted with the hulk persona, and besides one or two scenes he's more or less a big goof played for laughs.

  • Y6FM

    Does it ever get tiresome being wrong so often? Natalie Portman is going to be the new Goddess Thor.

    You can come for me if you want but i gotta say. I love Don Cheadle. He’s cool and seems like a chill dude. But Terrance had way more of a presence as Rhodes. I do think they could’ve definitely made money from a spin off or something with him as Rhodes.

    How Terrence Howard seems to credit himself for Downey getting the role leaves a bad taste in the mouth

    No, Natalie Portman is no longer in the MCU because she's a goddess who finds snogging a Hemsworth for money beneath her....
