Look, we are human, we are flesh and blood, our blood has been infused with the power of any rumors or whatnot for the upcoming Marvel films, Avengers: Infinity War. The movie is supposed to be the final say on the last decade of Marvel movies —and given just how much cultural capital these films have had, it’s going to be quite a bit of say! In fact, as Anthony Mackie — the actor best known right now for playing Captain America’s best friend Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, said — there is a scene with at least forty superheroes battling in it at once. FORTY. For some reference, the bight airport fight scene that took our breath away in Captain America: Civil War had eleven heroes and I recall my brain melting out of my head quite a bit watching that.
But who ARE the heroes in question? Who are the forty Marvel Cinematic Heroes we hope to see! Well for one, we know we have… (ahem)
1. Black Panther2. Hulk3. The Vision4. Captain America5. Falcon6. Winter Soldier7. Thor8. Valkyrie9. Black Widow10. Loki11. Hawkeye12. Iron Man13. War Machine14. Ant-Man15. Wasp16. Spider-Man17. Gamora18. Rocket Raccoon19. Drax20. Star Lord21. Groot22. Nebula23. Mantis24. Dr. Strange25. Wong26. Nakia27. Okoye28. Heimdall
SO look those are all the obvious ones I could name. Everyone from the Avengers, everyone who’s a part of Black Panther’s posse, everyone who’s a part of Thor’s gang — but twenty seven does not forty make! Could it be that Anthony Mackie was exaggerating! Could it be he was rounding! NAY! I declare! I want to figure out who the other twelve characters are! Let’s see, let’s count in some humans.
29. Nick Fury30. Sharon Carter31. Maria Hill32. Hank Pym
And look — we can assume Captain Marvel is going to be making her very secret debut at some point in the movie. And yeah, I know, it’s probably going to be after the credits, but folks. Maybe not!? Let’s count her in.
33. Captain Marvel
OKAY so. We need seven more. Do I have to guess how I’ll be shocked now! Will Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist be making an appearance? Maybe! But what if… what if… the paperwork on that Fox Merger moved so quickly… that… 34-40 will be
34-37. The Fantastic Four38-40. IDK A Bunch of X-Men?
Yeah! Forty characters! I can count… real high folks.
