We are sitting in a golden age of comic book movies. In less than a week, [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) is hitting theaters. Then, 2 months later is another big superhero flick: Captain America: Civil War, which will be one of Marvel's most epic films out to date. However, in 2018 and 2019 Avengers: Infinity Wars: Parts 1 and 2 come out. This two part finale is what Marvel has been leading up to since day 1. The Avengers travel to space, (most likely) meet up with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and team up to face the mighty Thanos as he tries to possess all 6 infinity stones and destroy the universe for the love of his life, Lady Death.
Avengers: Infinity Wars is the largest scale superhero movie that we have ever seen. It is like a comic-book finale event on the big screen. What I am trying to get across is that this is a BIG movie. This may be the largest movie we will ever see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is going to consist all of the heroes and even some villains we have got to know over the past decade (2008-2018). According to the Russo Brothers a while back, they confirmed that there will be about 68 characters! Now, they have placed some more input on the topic. Here's what they said:
"New characters are going to appear in Avengers: Infinity War," says Joe Russo, one of the two directors of the film. "It’s a big sprawling ambitious movie, it’s about as ambitious as movies get and it should be, and the title alone indicates that there will be an incredible scape and scope to it. It is intended to be the entire culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and, in many ways, the end to that part of it," adds Anthony Russo. "But we don’t even have the first draft in on that script yet; we’re still in the outline phase. It’s hard not to talk about it too specifically not only because of spoilers but also because we’re still figuring it out."
What New Characters?
As we know we are going to see returning characters such as members of the Avengers, possibly Guardians of the Galaxy and the Defenders, and much more. It will be pretty hard to fill up 68 characters all of which we have met, so there has to be some new ones. Now that it has been confirmed, it is a good time to ask ourselves this one questions: What new characters will be debut to the MCU in Avengers: Infinity Wars?
This one is an obvious one but needs to be brought up. Captain Marvel is set to get her own solo film in July of 2018, two months after the release of Avengers: Infinity Wars Part 1. Since she has not been introduced yet, it is only logical to conclude that she will first debut in Part 1.
The Inhumans are also getting their own film after the second part of Avengers: Infinity Wars and is the last movie of Phase 3. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is starting to introduce the lore of the Inhumans, who are the Marvel Cinematic Universe's mutants, as they do not have the rights to the X-Men. Before the film, we can hopefully get introduced to some of the characters on the team such as Black Bolt, and his Royal Family, consisting of Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, and the canine Lockjaw.
The Black Order
The Black Order is definitely a big possibility of appearing in the movie. The Black Order is a group of lethal aliens gathered by Thanos in order to help him in his crusade to raze different worlds, and force their inhabitants to pay him tributes. The members include Black Dwarf, Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw, Supergiant, and Proxima Midnight. I think if they would appear, it would be in Part 1 in the beginning of Thanos' crusade to find the Infinity Stones. They would be defeated early on and that's when Thanos will acquire some other villains.
Adam Warlock almost has to appear in Avengers: Infinity Wars. He has a lot of backstory with Thanos, so it would make most sense to introduce him with Thanos. We all suspected him to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, but James Gunn has confirmed many times that he will not make an appearance. Adam Warlock is an awesome character and this will be a perfect movie to introduce him in as he will have a big part in defeating the Mad Titan.
This is the last one and I am aware it is a stretch. The Fantastic Four is owned by Fox along with the X-Men, which I think should stay at Fox for a couple more years. However, Fox has tried multiple Fantastic Four movies and they have all been epic flops. It is now time for Fox to make a trade with Marvel and return the property for some things in return. The Fantastic Four is a great property has a bad rap because of Fox's crappy films. Some fans think that they made this deal already and are keeping it a secret.
If Marvel obtains the rights in time, they will be able to bring justice to the property. Infinity Wars is the best way to introduce them as they really shine when they fight in space. The Fantastic Four has spent a lot of time in space, that's how they got their powers! Let's just hope this happens! I think if Marvel receives the rights back, they won't even think twice about including the Fantastic Four in Infinity Wars and into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.
