The main cast may have been revealed for Avengers: Infinity War.
A casting call posted on MovieCastingCall.org has posted an open call for extras, while also seemingly confirming the main cast of 22 actors for the third Avengers outing. The full posting reads;
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 Witch, 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.
If this listing is official, it would confirm Brie Larson’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Captain Marvel ahead of the character’s solo movie in 2019, as well as the first on-screen team-up of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Also very conspicuous by his absence is Tom Holland, who of course made his MCU debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, and will make his solo debut next July in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Infinity War is due to start filming shortly, for a 4 May 2018 release. The original plan was for this to be Part One, with the second installment coming one year later. The second movie is now going by “Untitled Avengers Movie”, with both movies filming concurrently, and is due for release on 3 May 2019.
