It’s a lot harder to throw something into an animated film since each and every moment is deliberately drawn, sculpted, or animated. “Big Hero 6” manages to do it in a few different ways, however. T.J. Miller ended up ad-libbing most of Fred’s dialogue to give it a more personal touch. In addition, you might notice Cass has some goofy facial expressions, especially while talking about her extra-spicy hot wings.
This comes from the voice actress herself, Maya Rudolph, who made faces while recording her lines. They were copied directly onto the character thanks to the animators getting their hands on footage of her during recordings.
Mark Ruffalo Gets a Few Chances to Show Off
While a lot of press goes to Iron Man, Captain America, and some of the newer characters, there's no ignoring the big green elephant in the room. Bruce Banner is smart, strong, and has surprising depth to his character. His actor, Mark Ruffalo, got to add a few of his own elements, such as the earth-shaking roar that brings Iron man back to consciousness.
He also added a small moment when he focuses on a cradle, during his meeting with Black Widow. This gets expanded on in the sequel when he and Natasha Romanoff bond over their inability to have children. We don't know if Ruffalo knew about this detail, or if the producers ran with his unscripted moment.
That Guy's Playing Galaga
One of the most memorable scenes in the first “Avengers” movie is when Tony Stark walks into the Helicarrier's bridge and points out a guy playing the classic alien-fighting video game Galaga. At the end of the scene, the same SHIELD employee turns back to his video game.
The original line was an ad-libbed joke by Downey, but director Joss Whedon found the employee a little sketchy in the scene, so he added a scene of the employee returning to his game once the main characters departed. Not only did the scene add a brief moment of notable humor, but the entire shot of the game returning was never even in the script.
The Mac and Cheese Scene From “Hawkeye”
Characters Yelena Belova (The Black Widow's sister) and Kate Bishop share a tense, emotional scene during the fifth episode of the “Hawkeye” series from Disney Plus, and apparently, the characters were given free rein during the filming. They share a pan of mac and cheese, and the directors do almost whatever they want.
The addition of the hot sauce was unplanned, as was Yelena being disgusted by Bishop's lack of cutlery. Bishop's response, “I'm one person,” was similarly unscripted. It all came from the comfort Pugh (Yelena) and Steinfeld (Bishop) felt while filming together.
We Are Putting Together a Team
Technically the second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “The Incredible Hulk” is one of the more forgettable flicks on this list. It doesn't even have Mark Ruffalo as the titular character, it's pretty much removed from the events of the other films, and the quality is a little suspicious.
Still, it throws a bone to legacy fans with the scene after the credits, which has Tony Stark visit Thunderbolt Ross and mention a team he's building. At the time, the late William Hurt (who played Ross) said, the entire scene was improvised with the goal in mind. Stark gets a couple of his trademark snarky jabs across Ross, and those still watching got a dose of what was to come.
