Everyone knows that the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War will be a giant affair, but the movie's stars have revealed that one scene in particular will feature a whopping 40 of our favorite superheroes together.
With Infinity War's all-star cast including Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, and Josh Brolin (to name but a few), the great and the good of the MCU are gathering for a movie that has been a decade in the making. As the 19th MCU movie, the Russo Brothers seems to be inviting everyone to the party for Infinity War. However, with so many different actors occupying a limited runtime, there may be fears that not everyone will get their moment to shine. Don't worry though, it seems that a lot of the heroes will be sharing the screen at the same time.
Speaking at Ace Comic-Con (via ComicBook.com), Anthony Mackie revealed that Falcon will be just one of many in an epic Infinity War scene that will feature around 40 characters at once:
"There was one day we were on set and were doing this scene that's in the trailer where we're all running to battle, you know, all of us are on set and it's like forty superheroes. I look to my right and I see Tom Holland and Dave Batista. I see them in the corner and Tom is literally the size of Dave's leg, I don't know what they're talking about but Batista jumps up and does a kick-punch move and I was like 'Yo, you're about to kill him!'"
Also part of the huge ensemble, Chris Evans appeared alongside Mackie to tease the massive brawl with Captain America at the forefront:
"That day was really fun, I know the day you're talking about, that day was [snickers]...you'll see. It was a great day with a lot of great people."
The scene in question was pictured in the first Infinity War trailer, which showed a whole host of MCU heroes running toward a presumed threat of the Mad Titan Thanos and his Black Order. There was already a mountain of hype surrounding the battle, but Mackie and Evans make it sound like it's going to be even bigger than we first thought. Fans already knew that around 67 characters would feature in the movie, but gathering so many for just one scene seems like quite the task to pull off.
As one of 2018's most-anticipated movies, the Russo Brothers looks set to continue the MCU's winning streak with Infinity War - and as the predecessor to 2019's Avengers 4, Infinity War promises to be anything but a filler movie before Thanos' reign of terror comes to an end.
