It’s no real surprise that a movie called Avengers: Infinity War is set to have a whole lot of superheroes in it. Those who read the Infinity Gauntlet comic know just how big the stakes are and how many Avengers ultimately play a role in the struggle against the Mad Titan Thanos, but just how many can we expect in the upcoming film?
There have been upwards of 64 characters teased in the film, with as many as 32 potentially being in the same scene together. But how familiar are the actors themselves with each others, and how familiar are they with the newer characters that surround them?
Sometimes, not incredibly familiar at all. Actor Sebastian Stan recently posted an image on Instagram, and in it, he shares a photo of a Funko Pop figure of Corvus Glaive, a member of Thanos’ Black Order, and went on to express his confusion.

No surprise here. Given the scope of this film, and the massive secrecy behind it, it was already made clear months ago that information was given to some actors on a need-to-know basis (Tom Holland famously couldn’t read the script). With as many actors as there were, it’s impossible for them to have been involved in every aspect of the story, so there are undoubtedly big gaps in the knowledge of each actor in play here.
While this isn’t the ideal way to make a film (and probably not the most creatively-fulfilling), so long as the end product turns out okay, it’s all good, right?
