Avengers: Infinity War -- Every Missing MCU Character From Marvel's New Movie
Created by Chris E. Hayner on
Avengers: Infinity War is missing some very important characters
Avengers: Infinity War boasts an enormous cast--it's bursting at the seams with characters both new and old. It features existing members of the Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy and the people of Wakanda. With a villain as powerful as Thanos to deal with, it makes sense that such a powerful group of individuals would be needed to stop him. But what about all of the characters who still didn't managed to make the cut for the big new movie? This is where you should stop reading if you haven't seen the movie, as we're about to dive pretty deep into spoiler territory--consider yourself warned.
It could easily be argued that Infinity War included too many characters for its nearly three-hour running time. However, there were some faces fans had their hope on that were nowhere to be found. Instead, the Marvel Cinematic Universe faithful are forced to wait a year to see whether or not Thanos turned them to dust of if they'll be able to join the fight in Avengers 4.
After watching Avenger: Infinity War too many times to count, GameSpot has come up with the definitive list of characters we were sad to see didn't take part in the battle against the big, purple jerk. Some of them seem like smart and powerful additions to the crew; others are named Korg and we love him too much to leave him out.
Separately, there have been enough questions about one Guardians of the Galaxy side character--Kraglin--to warrant an official answer from James Gunn. Spoilers: No, he's not in the movie, but that doesn't mean he died during the four-year gap between Guardians 2 and Infinity War.
We don't yet know most of the faces we'll see in 2019's Avengers 4--whatever it ends up being called--but the cast may have some room for expansion after Infinity War killed off so many characters when Thanos snapped his fingers. Avengers 4 arrives in theaters on May 3, 2019.
