The cast of Avengers: Infinity War is expanding quickly. We have known that the likes of Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and obviously Thanos (Josh Brolin) would make appearances, with the likes of Black Panther, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, and more being widely assumed to join as well. Yesterday, we learned that Star-Lord and Thor would be getting involved, which marks our first Guardians/Avengers crossover so far, but now we know another earthly character that will return.
At Cincema Con, Samuel L. Jackson has told Erik Davis from Fandango that Nick Fury will in fact make his return to fight Thanos, after he will be sitting out Captain America: Civil War.

It seems like we will be getting a lot of familiar faces in Infinity War, but also surely some new ones. No matter what characters appear, no one is safe in the battle against Thanos and we should see some of the biggest players through the first 3 phases of the MCU meet their end.
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is scheduled to hit theaters May 4, 2018. Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 is scheduled to hit theaters May 3, 2019.
