21 Unscripted Marvel Moments That Were So Good, They Made It Into The Movies

"Bitch, please. You've been to space" was improvised by Samuel L. Jackson in the new Spider-Man movie.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us their favorite improvised and unscripted moments from Marvel movies over the last decade. Here are the hilarious and genius results.


1. In Avengers: Endgame, Tony Stark's entire death scene was completely made up on the spot.

2. In Spider-Man: Far from Home, Samuel L. Jackson improvised the iconic "Bitch, please. You've been to space" rebuttal after Peter claimed he was just a neighborhood Spider-Man.

3. In Avengers: Endgame, Tony Stark's final line ("And I... am... Iron Man") before snapping his finger was added last-minute by the film's editor.

4. In Captain Marvel, during a take when the Skrull was on the autopsy table, Samuel L. Jackson randomly decided to lift up the cloth to see the naked alien, and they kept it in the movie.

5. In Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth completely fabricated the whole childhood snake story off the top of his head.

6. In Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland forgot his blocking, so RDJ stayed in character and said "you're supposed to move now so I can sit on the bed."

7. In Avengers: Infinity War, Winston Duke and some other cast members started doing unscripted war chants from Black Panther, so they added them into the movie.

8. In Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch made an impromptu joke about Wong's name and called him "Beyoncé," whom he's never heard of. In the next scene, Wong was listening to Beyoncé as "research."

9. In Avengers: Infinity War, Dave Bautista improvised the iconic "Why is Gamora?" bit.

10. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Robert Downey Jr. improvised the "please be a secret door, please be a secret door" line right before the secret door opened.

15. In Thor: The Dark World, Chris Hemsworth was playing with Thor's hammer between scenes and thought it'd be funny to hang it on the coat hook during one of the takes.

16. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr. improvised that whole "hug" scene.

17. In The Avengers, Robert Downey Jr. always hid snacks around the set for when he got hungry. One day he randomly offered Chris Evans blueberries in the middle of a scene, and they kept it in.

18. In Thor, Chris Hemsworth ad-libbed the "another!" line after drinking his first sip of coffee, and then he threw the cup on the ground.

19. In Black Panther, Winston Duke decided to make gorilla sounds to assert M'Baku's power when Martin Freeman's character tried to step in.
