All 41 Characters Confirmed And Rumored To Appear In Avengers: Infinity War


Who lives, who dies?

That’s the million-dollar question currently lingering over Avengers: Infinity War, Joe and Anthony Russo’s crossover that’s not so much a movie as it is a cinematic event. It’s also the first chapter in a two-part story, given the so-far untitled Avengers 4 is poised to put a bow on the whole Thanos saga – along with the current iteration of the MCU, if Kevin Feige is to be believed – come 2019.

And when it does, the studio’s character roster will be dramatically different to the one that’s helped define the Marvel Cinematic Universe hitherto. Speaking of which, if there’s another element of Infinity War that continues to fuel debate online, it’s who exactly we can expect to see in the film. Beyond the MCU stalwarts (see: Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, etc.), the Russos have been understandably coy when it comes to the official cast list. And though that’s still the case, the folks over at Comic Book Movie are here to help.

The outlet has “gone through every report, set photo, and rumour to gather up a list of every Marvel hero and villain expected to make an appearance” in the pic, and here’s what they’ve come up with:

  1. Korg
  2. Black Panther
  3. War Machine
  4. Pepper Potts
  5. Doctor Strange
  6. Wong
  7. Spider-Man
  8. Valkyrie
  9. Shuri
  10. Dr. Erik Selvig
  11. Nova Prime
  12. Star-Lord
  13. Iron Man
  14. Hawkeye
  15. Vision
  16. Rocket
  17. Groot
  18. Bucky
  19. Corvus Glaive
  20. Ebony Maw
  21. Cull Obsidian
  22. Proxima Midnight
  23. Happy Hogan
  24. Falcon
  25. Loki
  26. Hulk
  27. Okoye
  28. Scarlet Witch
  29. Mantis
  30. Thor
  31. Gamora
  32. Black Widow
  33. Drax
  34. Captain America
  35. Sharon Carter
  36. Nebula
  37. Maria Hill
  38. Ant-Man
  39. Sif
  40. The Collector
  41. Thanos

Still with us? Good, as there’s a few things to point out here. Firstly, there does seem to be a few individuals who were left off this list. For instance, Everett K. Ross, Captain Marvel, Ned and M’Baku are all rumored to be involved and given that CBM is essentially just naming everyone who’s ever been mentioned in the same breath as the film, they should be included here.

It’s also important to note that even if all of these characters do end up showing their face, Infinity War obviously won’t be giving each one a starring, or even sizable role. We imagine that most will appear for only a scene or two. Even if that’s the case, though, there are certainly a lot of heroes/villains involved here and we can’t even imagine how chaotic it must have been on set juggling everything. Not to mention what a difficult job the Russos had in regards to ensuring that the plot and action is clear and easy to follow throughout, which was no doubt tremendously challenging with so many characters involved.

Were they able to pull it all off, though? We’ll find out quite soon, as Avengers: Infinity War drops on May 4th, 2018. Soon after that, the MCU will swing its doors open to Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel, the first female-fronted Marvel film, before Avengers 4 ties a bow around Phase 3 in 2019.
