Right: Every Character Had their Time to Shine
5 Things Infinity War Did So Right, and 3 Questions Still Left Unanswered
One of the main worries we had going into Infinity War was whether or not it would be able to fit everyone in. With 19 movies and countless characters at this point, it seemed unlikely that every major character would get their dues, with it more likely that the movie would focus on a core group of heroes. We’re happy to report that not only does Infinity War manage to fit everyone in, it gives everyone their own little moment to shine.
The obvious main characters of Iron Man, Thor and the Guardians are given the most screen-time but even relatively small characters like Nebula and Shuri are well utilized. There’s more Spider-Man than we could ever have hoped for, and even Guardians 2’s Mantis is given a vital role in the fight against Thanos. The movie does a great job at splitting its huge cast of characters into small groups, each given their own objectives and story arc. It’s a masterclass in story-telling and puts to bed any fears that comic book crossover stories can’t work well on the big screen.
