Next year, the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it is set to culminate for Avengers: Infinity War. And while attendants at this weekend's D23 Expo were treated to some of the very first footage for the film, they were also given the opportunity to see many members of the film's ensemble cast in person.
A photo from Marvel Studios' D23 panel shows a large number of the Infinity War's cast members gathered together. You can check it out below:
From left to right, the photo shows Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Dave Bautista (Drax), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementeiff (Mantis), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (Vision), Don Cheadle (War Machine), and Anthony Mackie (Falcon).
Quite a few members of the film's confirmed cast are missing from the group, including Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), and Zoe Saldana (Gamora).
