Russo Brothers Say "A Lot" Of Marvel Characters In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, But Not 67
So the Russo Brothers went viral a couple days back when it was released they made a statement at New Orleans Comic Con that there would be 67 total Marvel heroes in Avengers: Infinity War. The statement spread quickly with good reason, as 67 is way more Marvel heroes than we've seen in the cinematic universe...and still a high number if you add live action television!
Well, it turns out that news was wrong. ComicBook says the Russos spoke at a special IMAX screening of Captain America:The Winter Soldier and said that 67 was just a "figure." They did assure fans in attendance, however, that there would be a lot of heroes in the film!
“Infinity War is meant to be the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe up to that point...It’s very ambitious in its scope, it wants to take everything that you’ve seen before and coalesce into some kinda of climactic ending. It’s complicated , ambitious storytelling…We’re not talking about lead characters, just people that make an appearance.”
Just to revisit the miscommunication, the Russos did say 67 originally, and now are correcting themselves. It seems weird to throw out such a specific number when you really have no idea...do you think they really were being hyperbolic...or perhaps let a little too much out of the bag?
