Jeff Goldblum Was Offered Captain America: The First Avenger Role

Avengers: Infinity War Poster Features Iron Man

Feige recently told Uproxx that a certain "Thor: Ragnarok" star was offered a role first in "Captain America: The First Avenger", but for reasons unknown to him, he turned their offer down.

"That's exactly what happened", Feige confirmed during the press conference. Not to mention the movie has a stellar cast including Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Jeff Goldblum, Cate Blanchett and more.

"Now, I won't say where it goes, but it's the continuing evolution of the relationship between Banner and Hulk, and you see a side of it here [in Thor: Ragnarok]", Feige continued. I mean, I'll tell you, I think we spoke to him or offered him a role in Captain America: The First Avenger. "And he either wasn't available or wasn't interested or whatever", he said. "And thank goodness, because that would have just been a small thing and instead we got to wait for the Grandmaster, which is about as wonderful as a Jeff Goldblum "Goldblum-iness" could be". /Film's Peter Sciretta will have his own one-on-one interview with Feige here on the site closer to the film's release, but in the meantime, I've collected some of the uber-producer's comments from other interviews in which he talks about the connective tissue of easter eggs, Captain Marvel's whereabouts, Feige's plans for Marvel Studios Phase Four, and much more. Instead of Goldblum, Marvel got Michael Brandon to play the role, according to Screen Rant. Not that there was going to be any doubt about it, but in Thor Ragnarok, Goldblum goes full Goldblum and it is a delight.
