Avengers: Infinity War is set to be the biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie ever, and also one of the biggest movies ever. The actual number of Marvel characters appearing in the movie is yet to be revealed, but Thor actor Chris Hemsworth gave what he thought to be a rough estimate in a recent interview with The Toronto Sun:
“This is one of the biggest things in film history and to be a part of it was just incredible. I think what these characters are about to face — with Thanos — there’s been nothing quite like it. There are 76 cast members or something like that. I think what people are going to be excited about is what I was excited about and that,” Hemsworth offered. “The interactions between all of these characters and the different sorts of chemistry and the relationships that are formed is something that people are going to be pretty blown away by.”
“They’re going to be massive. I finished literally two days ago, and I looked at (directors) Joe and Anthony (Russo) and said, ‘I don’t know how you guys have gotten this far, and I don’t know how you’re going to hold it together and complete this thing, but my hat’s off to you.’”
If that’s not enough to convince you, we’ll let the film’s synopsis do the talking:
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.
The movie stars Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bethany, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, and Josh Brolin as the big bad villain Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4, 2018.
