Got a perfect score (though Klementieff took a while), but I reckon I'd have done terribly trying to do it the other way around - i.e. character to actor.

Good quiz.

Paul Bettany also portrayed Jarvis in the MCU.
Benedict Cumberbatch also portrayed Dormammu in the MCU.

My own observation here inspired me to make a new quiz. It ended up much longer than I thought it would be.

when I first made the above quiz I expected it to be 10 or 15 answers. Then it turned into 20, then 30... it's getting ridiculous. They make so many comic book movies these days I might have to give up updating it eventually as the more people who work on these films and the longer this trend continues it's just going to get exponentially larger as time goes by. :P

With all the characters in the MCU you could very well run out of time if that was your strategy. But you'd probably end up with at least a large portion.

Seeing as how Jarvis and Vision are both the same actor and the same entity in the MCU, I think Jarvis should be an acceptable alternative. On an unrelated note, I somehow was able to remember "T'challa" faster than Black Panther.

Both Fantastic Four and Deadpool 2 are produced by Marvel studios and are based on Marvel characters. What else would qualify them as MCU movies? I'm curious

The MCU is the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is the interconnected universe of films envisioned by Kevin Feige and Avi Arad, beginning in 2008 with Iron Man and most recently culminating in 2018's Avengers: Infinity War. The MCU films are produced in house by Marvel Studios and were distributed by Paramount Pictures originally, but since Marvel became a Disney subsidiary they are now effectively Disney films.

Prior to 2008 there was a period of time when Marvel Comics was going through hard financial times and they sold off the movie rights to most of their most popular characters. The X-Men and Fantastic Four went to Fox. Spider-Man went to Sony. The Incredible Hulk, Blade, Ghost Rider, and the Punisher were sold off, as well. After the success of Fox's X-Men and Sony's Spider-Man movies, Marvel decided to try and produce their own movies, with the problem being they had sold off the rights to most of them.

Fiege, then 2nd at Marvel Comics, realized that Marvel still owned the rights to almost all of the members of the original Avengers team and came up with the idea to try an interconnected universe: start with several different films about Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, etc, leading up to a cross-over event film The Avengers. They only needed to work out a deal with Universal who owned the film rights to the Hulk.

Feige's plan succeeded brilliantly and since then many other studios have tried (and mostly failed) to copy it. But with one exception all of those popular Marvel characters I listed above still have their film rights owned by other studios. Marvel Studios might work on the films, or they may simply have the Marvel logo at the beginning, but they are not set in the MCU.

The one exception is Spider-Man. Sony cut a deal with Marvel so that Spidey could be in the MCU, and that's why Spider-Man appears in the MCU films Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man Homecoming (Homecoming being a nod to the fact that Spidey had come home to Marvel), and Avengers: Infinity War.
The Sony Spider-Man films Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man, and TASM2 do NOT take place in the MCU... they are in their own alternate reality. Different universe/timeline and Marvel Studios had nothing to do with them.
It may get more confusing in the future as Sony is still producing their own Spider-verse films. The first one to come out since the deal with Marvel will be Venom. It's unclear if this will be considered part of the MCU or not.

Further in to the future, Disney is in the process of acquiring Fox, and once that deal goes through, since Disney owns Marvel, it's likely that the X-Men and Fantastic Four will also appear in the MCU.

That was quite a good summary! And for all the reasons Kal pointed out, Spider-Man can appear on this quiz, but not Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield (or all the villains but Vulture).

One thing to add that I've recently learned: even though Feige was the president of Marvel Studios who saw the MCU come to life in 2008 through the present, apparently it wasn't his brainchild. That credit seems to be deserved by David Maisel, who in 2003 pitched the idea of Marvel self-financing and producing its own films in an interconnected universe to Avi Arad. Maisel was hired on as president of Marvel Studios, and later became CEO of Marvel Entertainment and the Marvel Studios' Chairman. So he was Feige's boss.

I know kalbahamut covered the reasons why this should be so in his excellent summary of what constitutes the MCU, but Johnny Storm should be removed as an answer and Killmonger should be the sole acceptable response for Michael B. Jordan's clue. Not saying that Fantastic Four won't be part of the MCU in the future, but it will probably be recast (and if you're including Fantastic Four in this quiz, Johnny Storm should also be an acceptable answer for Chris Evans). Now that I'm thinking about it, though, why did you use Johnny Storm and not his superhero name? That would have been more consistent with the quiz.

Agreed. The Fantastic Four will become part of the MCU in the future, but that doesn't make the past movies qualify.

^this is true. The last Fantastic Four movie was not set in the MCU, and neither is Deadpool 2 so you should remove "Cable" from the answer for Brolin.

Though knowing who played all of these roles will help you out if you take my quiz that I linked to above.

To the best of my knowledge the only actor to play multiple roles within the MCU is Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrayed both Doctor Strange and Dormammu, but I assume that was because the producers felt that nobody would recognize him as Dormammu.
