Thanos will go up against many of Earth's mightiest heroes in "Infinity War."

According to "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo, they currently have 67 characters on tap for the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" film.

"We have so many characters we’re dealing with. We’re breaking ground on Avengers: Infinity War. We have a board with 67 characters on it," they revealed at Wizard World New Orleans.

This announcement follows Joe Russo's earlier tease, where he said, "People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of 'Infinity War' is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen, and we’re going to honor that concept."

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, "Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1" is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018.
