Now, this was a surprise.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that most of the actors in the MCU cast were already well-established when they joined the MCU universe but I actually didn’t know that they had acted together before in different movies. This is actually quite hard to believe for me as well since I have watched some of these movies but since some of the actors are so young in these that I didn’t even recognize them before this.
From Scarlet Johansen to Benedict Cumberbatch, they have acted in a bunch of different movies with a myriad of different actors from the MCU cast. I bet this is why some of the chemistry in the movies between these characters is so good since they have already acted together. While I don’t even know the basics of acting myself, I assume it must make things easier to act with a partner you feel comfortable with or have worked with before.
I am quite sure that you will be surprised with some of the following as well. So just scroll below to take a look for yourself.
#1 Both Brie Larson and Mark Ruffalo were in 13 Going On 30.
#2 Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana have also worked before in Infinitely Polar Bear.
#3 We have Mark Ruffalo once again and this time, he acted with Michael Keaton in Spotlight.

We use the term appeared together or acted together quite loosely here since some of these movies don’t have the characters even on the screen at the same time so I am not sure how much they were able to interact behind the scenes. However, it is always interesting to see these faces somewhere other than the Marvel Universe.
