Another casting call we’ve dug up has seemingly revealed a majority of the returning and some new characters that will be joining Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War set to begin production next month in Atlanta.
This project is going to be massive as you can see below.
Starring in “Avengers: Infinity War” is BAFTA Award nominee Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin as Thanos, Saturn Award Winner Chris Pratt as Star Lord / Peter Quill, Teen Choice Awards nominee Sebastian Stan as Bucky, four-time Golden Globe Award nominee Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange, Academy Award winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, ALMA Award winner Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Empire Award winner Karen Gillan as Nebula, two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton / Hawkeye, two-time Saturn Award nominee Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America, BAFTA Awards nominee Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet, four-time Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Vin Diesel as Groot, Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man, British Independent Film Awards nominee Benedict Wong as Wong, Action on Film Award winner Dave Bautista as Drax, BAFTA Film Award nominee Paul Bettany as Vision, Santa Barbara International Film Festival Virtuoso Award winner Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther, three-time Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner / The Hulk, and two-time Academy Award nominee Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man.
The main standouts to us is that Captain Marvel‘s Brie Larson and Nebula’s Karen Gillan are named here, who had been rumored but not exactly confirmed to be participating in the film.
We kind of suspected we were going to get an influx of female characters, but it’s unclear how these two will fit into the story.
The list sort of matches talk that Spider-Man‘s Tom Holland and Wasp’s Evangeline Lily likely won’t be able to make the cut for the first film, but could be apart of Avengers 4 shooting later in the year.
It also includes Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong, who recently confirmed their inclusion during the press tour for Doctor Strange.
We recently discovered Infinity War will begin filming on January 23rd.
