Recently quite a few venues are running with the idea that the Russo brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War) are going to have 67 characters in their upcoming two-parter. Avengers: Infinity War.
This is, on the face of it, nonsensical because last time I checked Marvel Studios haven’t even introduced 20 characters, never mind 67.
Besides, it would be also be outside the typical method they use to introduce new superheroes (most of their main characters were introduced via solo movies, expect for the Falcon, Black Widow, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Quicksilver, Vision, and Winter Soldier, most of whom are supporting characters–with the exception of Winter Soldier and Black Panther, the latter whom will have a solo movie).
And if it were true, we’d more than likely be talking about cameos–extended or otherwise–typically a most unsatisfying way to introduce new characters.
Which is why I believe that what the Russos are talking about is that they are considering from 67 characters to use, as opposed to actually including 67 characters.
Similar wording, huge difference.
