The Russo brothers, who will be directing the upcoming 2-part Avengers: Infinity War movie originally claimed the movie would have 67 characters. Last week, they bumped that number up to 68. Now, they definitely could be joking. Because that’s too many characters to truly give substantial roles to. But it seems too few to include the supporting characters in movies that have just one line or play a background role of some sort. Below, we list all the characters introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that COULD show up in the movie and we bold the most likely ones to show up. Because it’s entirely possible some major characters could essentially cameo in a movie like this. The comics story involved Thanos obtaining nearly infinite power and heroes and villains alike teaming up to stop him. So a shot or two of, say S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Defenders could be tossed in as a type of fan service, and count towards those 68, but not actually have a significant role in the plot. Right? Let’s break it down.

If we subtract the names we didn’t bold that only gives us 63 characters. Still, that’s fairly close. And maybe there could be cameos by Inhumans or other Guardians from the comics. What do you think? How likely are the people we bolded to show up in the Infinity War movies?
