ANOTHER UPDATE: Apparently, not! It is now 68 characters and will be updated accordingly.
UPDATE: It appears the figure was taken out of context and was exacerbated (on the internet?!), but this list still stands.
Original Story: Easy… Insane, but easy. I’ll tell you how. Yesterday, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo let it slip that the third Avengers movie (which will be split into two parts), will have a whopping sixty-seven character featured in it.
Now even though many people are starting to hold out hope for Moon Knight (I know I sure am), they said sixty-seven characters, not heroes and villains. Still, they do make up a lot of that number.
I compiled a quick list, and have found that it’s totally plausible. Warning: List will feature some SPOILERS for the Marvel movies in general…
The New Avengers—
Martin Freeman’s Character
Whoever plays Magus
The Ancient One
Justin Hammer (?)
Dum Dum Dugan
Possible Reincarnations (Thanos has the power to do so)—
Iron Monger/ Stane
Frigga (Thor’s Mother)
Possible TV Crossovers—
So there you have it. We have plenty to choose from, and these are just some examples. Naturally, they wouldn’t be able to get all of the revered actors who have played these parts, but who knows? With Marvel’s bankroll, this could be the most expensive Marvel movie ever.
