It was recently revealed that there could be as many as 67 (yes, sixty-seven) major characters appearing across the two upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movies in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
Of course, that kind of information gets people talking and speculating in their droves – specifically about which characters that veritable army might include.
The obvious assumptions are the Avengers themselves, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Adam Warlock, Thanos and Loki, while other assumptions include the likes of a returning Red Skull, the Defenders, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Asgardian supporting characters from the Thor movies.
But could there be some surprises in there? The obvious answer is "yes" and we're going to contemplate some of the more "out there" characters who could potentially appear in the Avengers: Infinity War movies…
The Black Order
The Black Order is a group of ruthless aliens that work for Thanos in the Marvel comic books. Given that he has always had flunkies working for him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, there's a good chance that they might accompany him when it comes to his big appearance in the Avengers: Infinity War movies.
Their ranks include Black Dwarf, Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw, Proxima Midnight and Supergiant and, in the comic books, they have done things like search for the Infinity Gems for Thanos – could they do the same with the MCU Infinity Stones?
If indeed the Black Order does appear, it will give the heroes even more to think about – as if they wouldn't have enough on their plates – but they would be pretty cool to see as they're all very interesting and powerful characters who'd undoubtedly look awesome in live action.
