The 10 Best Phase Four MCU Cameos, Ranked
New Asgardian Players
The New Asgardian Players from “Thor Ragnarok” make a callback cameo in the new “Love and Thunder.” The hilarious moment is topped off with the addition of Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone as Hela and the Players’ stage manager respectively.
Bruce Campbell
Before the Scarlet Witch delivers grim, morbidly funny punishments to the Illuminati in “The Multiverse of Madness,” Pizza Poppa (Bruce Campbell) gets hysterically self-waylaid a few scenes earlier. Pizza Poppa’s cameo isn't just a Campbell and director Sam Raimi collaboration, it serves as a stylistic foreshadowing of things to come.
Oswalt and Styles
It is an excellent set-up that Pip (Patton Oswalt) and Starfox (Harry Styles) arrive midway through the "Eternals" end credits. Pip and Eros have a humorous, swashbuckling dynamic that is a welcomed counterbalance to the Eternals' frequent existential angst for any potential future projects.
The Illuminati
The tease and introduction of the Illuminati was as much a bit of cinematic trolling as it was a cameo. However, in “The Multiverse of Madness” it only amounted to them (John Krasinski, Hayley Atwell, Anson Mount, Lashana Lynch, and Patrick Stewart) getting wrecked by Wanda in a few minutes.
The Old 97's
The Old 97's is a terrific alt-country band that’s one of writer-director James Gunn's favorite artists. The song they perform "I Don't Know What Christmas Is (But Christmas Time Is Here)" is as funny as anything Gunn's ever written, and Rhett Miller's melodies draw on classic holiday musical motifs without ever feeling derivative is icing on the cake.
