The popularity of 2019’s billion-dollar movie “Avengers: Endgame” is the result of fans’ dedication to characters they’ve followed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the past 10 years. 

Though the actors in the “Avengers” films are now huge names in Hollywood, it wasn’t always that way. They started out in small films and TV series before earning a spot in the franchise. Here are the earliest roles of the “Avengers” stars before they were famous. 

Long before playing Tony Stark/Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. landed his first role in the movie “Pound.” The movie was written and directed by his father. Downey was five years old when the movie was released, and played a puppy

Before Mark Ruffalo became known for his reputation as one of the worst secret-keepers in the “Avengers” cast, he starred in a variety of films, from comedies to horrors.

One of Scarlett Johansson’s first roles was in “Home Alone 3.” 

She also starred in the 2003 movie “Girl With a Pearl Earring” and the 2004 movie “The Perfect Score” alongside Chris Evans.

Aside from one role in 1999, Chris Evans’ acting career really kicked off in the early 2000s.

He starred in comedies like “Not Another Teen Movie” and “The Perfect Score,” but also starred in the 2004 thriller “Cellular” 

Before Chris Hemsworth played the God of Thunder, he was on several Australian shows.

 His first role ever was on the Australian soap opera “Neighbours.” He was also on the Australian version of “Dancing With the Stars” in 2006.
