Given that it is serving as the culmination of everything we’ve seen from the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, and featuring the majority of the characters we’ve been introduced to over the past decade, it’s pretty clear that Avengers: Infinity War is going to be unlike anything we’ve seen before in terms of epic scale.
And, during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote her new film Rough Night, Scarlett Johansson has teased that at one point we’ll be getting a scene with over 30 Marvel characters together…
“I am in it, and at one point I think that the Infinity Wars – I think at one point there are 61 or 62 Marvel characters in it. There’s a lot… In one particular scene, there’s like 32. There’s a lot. There’s so many of us, I don’t even know who’s a Marvel character and who’s a crew member, honestly.”
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
