The Insane Number Of Marvel Characters That May Appear In Avengers: Infinity War – Cinema Blend
During a panel at Wizard World New Orleans (via ComicBookMovie), director Anthony Russo mistakenly referred Hayley Atwellâ€™s Peggy Carter as “Sharon” (Sharon Carter, as we know, is a separate character played by Emily VanCamp). Defending his brother and partner, Joe Russo explained that itâ€™s hard to keep track of everyone whoâ€™s involved with the Avengers: Infinity War movies. He said:
We have so many characters we’re dealing with. Ã‚Â We’re breaking ground on Avengers: Infinity War. We have a board with 67 characters on it. You have to forgive him.
Weâ€™d be foolish to hold the Russos to that exact number, but from what little we know about the Avengers: Infinity War movies, it wouldnâ€™t be surprising if the two movies featured close to that amount. In many ways, the two-part adventure is the culmination of everything thatâ€™s been established in the MCU since 2008. More importantly, itâ€™s going to take everything the Avengers have to defeat Thanos. The Mad Titan is already powerful on his own (heâ€™s gone head-to-head with Hulk in the comics), but with the six Infinity Stones inÃ‚Â his Infinity Gauntlet, heâ€™ll be near-invincible. Earthâ€™s Mightiest Heroes will definitely be needing reinforcements.
Aside from Josh Brolin making his first full appearance as Thanos, the Avengers: Infinity WarÃ‚Â movies are also expected to feature Captain America, Iron Man Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, and even Loki. Itâ€™s also more likely than not that weâ€™ll see every other Avenger, from Black Widow to Falcon, take part, whether theyâ€™re still affiliated with the team or not. Many fans also expect that the Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in at least one of the movies, given their previous experience with Thanosâ€™ goons and the Power Stone. Then, of course, thereâ€™s some of the newer heroes who are just getting started in the MCU, like Doctor Strange and Black Panther, along with a few supporting characters from a heroâ€™s solo movie here and there.
As for appearances from characters who appear on the small screen, it was rumored last year that Netflix heroes like Daredevil and Jessica Jones could be thrown into the mix, but it was later implied that would be difficult to accomplish. Who knows, maybe even some of the folks from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could cameo, since theyâ€™ve also had experience dealing with extraterrestrial dangers. After all, itâ€™s about time the founding Avengers learn that Phil Coulson is still alive.
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1Ã‚Â hits theaters on May 4, 2018, while Avengers: Infinity War Part 2Ã‚Â will conclude the story on May 3, 2019.
