Infinity War: Casting Call Reveals Surprising Characters

Reportedly, Avengers: Infinity War will start shooting in January. It's already known that this will be the biggest MCU movie to date, uniting all of the superheroes against the ultimate threat of the shared universe – Thanos, the Mad Titan, who seeks to gather all of the Infinity Stones. However, as the most recent reports say, the movie will be even bigger and will feature characters we didn’t expect to see until the Infinity War sequel.

The website has posted a list of the film's main protagonists. And it's no surprise when characters like Black Panther, Ant-Man, Black Widow, and Vision are mentioned. However, the website also says that Captain America will appear (contradicting earlier reports that said he'd skip the third Avengers movie), as well as all of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
