Welcome to the inaugural edition of the HeroBlend Podcast! For our first show, CinemaBlend Events Editor (and all around comic book know-it-all) Eric Eisenberg and the Cord Cutter Podcast co-host Adrienne Jones will tackle a huge subject: 45 of the many (many, many) heroes and villains that may be destined to populate Avengers: Infinity War! As you probably know by now, the first major MCU team-up movie will arrive on April 27. With so few days left until this massive event film hits theaters, we knew it was time to help you make sense of all the potential characters from the decade of MCU films who could show up in this movie. The Avengers: Infinity War writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have confirmed that between 70 and 80 Marvel characters (most of who've shown up on the big screen before) will be featured in the blockbuster, so we're here to help you get all the details you need!

We'll go over the core characters you might expect to see, the dastardly villains, the new characters we know about and the characters from MCU movies of days past who we think are least likely to show up. So, will Tony Stark get a chance to put a beatdown on Red Skull? Are Sif and Thor going to share a friendly hug? What are the chances of Abomination busting out of the Vault to give the newly-intelligent Hulk some trouble at the worst possible time? Will Bruce get some much needed alone time with Black Widow? Do we know anything at all about who Peter Dinklage is playing? Will we lose some popular Wakandans? Sit back and relax, folks, because we're going to go over all of that and much more! Ready to dive in? Great! Read on to get the lowdown on this week's podcast and then listen for yourself above!
