In quarantine I’ve been rewatching the MCU in order of release. I’ve seen most of these movies at least 3-5 times each, and while watching Spider-Man: Homecoming I noticed something that many Webheads like myself have in the past.
Peter’s principal, known as Principal Morita, is related to Jim a member of Captain America’s Howling Commandoes. After some light research, I found out that The actor Ken Choi played both roles!
This is a small detail that is structurally irrelevant to the overall plotline of the MCU at all, but I think it’s one of the coolest easter eggs that the MCU has ever done. Tying these two films, and characters together makes the MCU as a whole, so much more interconnected than it already is.
Jim Choi is arguably one of my favorite all-time background characters in the entirety of the MCU delivering one of the best lines in the entire story. Dum Dum Dugan makes a comment about Jim being Japanese and Jim responds:
I love the MCU, I love almost every character, every plotline, and every easter egg. There’s just so much to these movies and rewatching them has made this whole quarantine so much more bearable.
