10 Surprising Cameos From Avengers: Infinity War That You Need To See

Tobias Funke

Let’s start off with one person we really didn’t expect to see in Avengers: Infinity War – Tobias Funke, David Cross’ character from Arrested Development!

When the Guardians enter the Collector’s chambers on Knowhere, it’s hard to spot, but if you look to the left of the screen you can make out a blue guy in a pair of shorts in one of the containers – which has to be a reference to the famous moment, for fans of the comedy, where Tobias painted himself blue. Or “blue himself,” as he put it. Apparently, he’s a rare enough commodity to be put in the Collector’s collection.

This isn’t the first time that the Russos have referenced their TV sitcom past in one of their Marvel movies, either. Captain America: Civil War previously featured Jim Rash as a teacher at MIT, somewhat similar to his role on Community, which the brothers also worked on. At this point, we’re pretty sure the directors are trying to fold their own shows into the MCU.
