There’s been a lot of rumor and speculation about which Marvel Cinematic Universe characters will appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. A new rumor making its way around reputable websites like Eisner award winning Comic Book Resources seems to have a definitive source: an “official” casting call for extras for Avengers filming in Georgia. However,
Comic Book Resources reports the rumor as fact with a straight headline claiming these characters are confirmed, when what they should have done, like Bleeding Cool, is put a question mark in the headline to cover their bases. We’ll take that Eisner now, thanks.
The source of the casting call, a blog called Disney Casting Calls, has a pretty glaring typo in the casting call copy, casting perhaps a little bit of doubt on its veracity. It also seems to go out of its way to list the actors and which characters they are playing, first and foremost in the text, which seems unnecessary for an industry job posting, and far more suited as rumor bait for comic book news sites. The actors alone would probably have been sufficient.
Still, it’s not like typos are unheard of around the Bleeding Cool offices *cough*RichJohnston*cough*, and what do we know – maybe extras are as interested in what characters will appear in Avengers: Infinity War as clickbait websites.
Characters that will appear in Avengers: Infinity War, provided this casting call is actually legit, include Thor, Thanos, Star Lord, Bucky, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Gamora, Nebula, Hawkeye, Captain America, the Scarlet Witch, ROCKET RACCOON, Groot, Nick Fury, Ant-Man, Drax, Black Panther, The Hulk, and Iron Man.
