Expectations are extremely high for Avengers: Infinity War. It's the first two-part film from Marvel Studios and will finally unleash Thanos (Josh Brolin) in all his devastating glory. But just how big is the film. At Wizard World New Orleans, directors Joe & Anthony Russo teased the film's scope by revealing how many characters are central to the film's plot. When Anthony Russo mistakenly referred to Hayley Atwell's Marvel character as 'Sharon' Carter, his brother Joe came to his defense. "We have so many characters we're dealing with. We're breaking ground on Avengers: Infinity War. We have a board with 67 characters on it. You have to forgive him."
Thanos will surely be a challenge that requires all the Marvel heroes to unite and work together like never before but a large number such as 67 would indicate that there's more than just Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and Thanos in play. Perhaps when the Mad Titan arrives on earth, he doesn't come alone?
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 arrives in theaters on May 4, 2018, followed a year later by Part 2 on May 3, 2019.
