When Avengers: Infinity War was announced as two separate parts, we all hoped that this meant as many characters as possible would be present when Thanos comes around. The roster is quickly expanding and they’ll need all hands on deck. The list of characters set to appear is ever growing with Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Star-Lord, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Nick Fury all being linked to the story in one way or another.
Of the previously mentioned characters, the most exciting one is Star-Lord as it confirms that the Guardians are coming to Earth. So far there has not been official word on whether or not the rest of them will appear, but Quill isn’t going to fly the Milano all the way here by himself. In an interview with The Verge, Christopher Markus teased the appearance of everyone’s favorite fuzzy, genetically and robotically enhanced gunslinger.
Whether they’re a 12-foot purple guy, or a raccoon, or an android, they’re all people, and we’re going to write them as people. You can’t write them any other way. So, ideally it will stay grounded because you’ll completely understand why the characters are doing what they’re doing, and you will in some way or another empathize.
The mention of “a raccoon” can only mean that Rocket Raccoon will be there to battle Thanos, and hopefully him and Quill are not alone. I’m sure whichever Guardians are still standing and a part of the team will make the journey, so expect to see some combination of Gamora, Drax, Groot, Nebula, Yondu, and Mantis will join their fellow Guardians. Let us know what Guardians you want to see appear in Infinity War in the comments below!
