With each Avengers movie we’ve seen the cast grow and change but it looks as if the cast may just grow in a huge exponential leap when ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ comes out, according to co-director Joe Russo. So just how big will the cast become?

“We have so many characters we’re dealing with,” Russo said (via ComicBookMovie). “We’re breaking ground on Avengers: Infinity War. We have a board with 67 characters on it. You have to forgive him.”

“The intent with the Infinity War films is to bring ten years of accumulative storytelling to an incredible climax,” said the Russos. “We felt that the best way to exploit the scale and scope required to close out the final chapter of these three phases, was to be the first films shot entirely on the IMAX/ARRI Digital camera.”

This means that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will grow to a huge number because if you add up all the Marvel characters that have appeared in all the films it is far less than 67. We know that Black Panther, Captain Marvel, The Inhumans, and much more are on the way. Plus who is to say that the total does not also include villains past and future? Maybe Loki, Red Skull and Ronan The Accuser will come back into the fold to either aid or steal what Thanos has been trying to get all along… The Infinity Gauntlet?
