The more the merrier!
No matter what, fans will not be disappointed by how many Marvel characters appear in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2. Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of the two-part Marvel cinematic event, have said that they plan on using characters from every corner of the MCU.
Just last month, at Wizard World New Orleans Comic Con, much was made of the Russos saying that 67 characters will appear in Infinity War. However, they quickly clarified those remarks, saying they were being figurative when they threw that number out there.
Today, at Wizard World Cleveland Comic Con, the Russos kicked up some more dust. "The Russos also took a moment during the panel to correct a mistake they made earlier this year when describing the plot to the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, which they are on board to direct," Cleveland.com reports. "The movie features 68 distinct characters, not 67."
Keep in mind, there's a good possibility they were just joking around. Either way, we know they have the daunting task of bringing all these characters together to make a satisfying conclusion to Phase 3.
"We have to tell a story and that story has to be built around the characters' emotional arcs," said Joe Russo. "And we can only have so many of those."
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 arrives in theaters May 4, 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 will swoop into theaters on May 3, 2019.
