Writers confirm there’s a lot of characters possibly set for Avengers: Infinity War

Remember THIS story about the massive cast set for Avengers: Infinity War?

Well, it looks like the movie will indeed have a massive cast of characters (including Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt as Thor and Star-lord), with over 60 being available to use… although it’s unlikely we’ll see them all.

Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have spoken about having so many character available: “Well, I mean that number is literally — that number comes from the fact that that’s everyone who’s already been introduced. If you line up all the character’s who are available to use from the prior Marvel movies, it racks up to about 60 something characters, let alone the new ones you could bring in.” 

McFeely added: “Right. We had our office filled with cards of everybody who was alive and available, and the brothers came in and went, ‘Whoa.’ So that doesn’t mean that everyone is, you know, there’s not going to be 67 lead parts.”

It will be interesting to see who stays and who goes, but we’re guessing it’ll be a safe bet that a large amount of the characters will be needed to stop the threat of Thanos. Providing, that is, he actually gets out of his chair.

Just sayin’.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
