2 of 16
Nebula and Scarlet Witch
As played by Karen Gillan and Elizabeth Olsen, both are sisters who were shaped by powerful experiences with a beloved (or maybe not-so-beloved) sibling, and both found redemption after aligning with darker forces.

Teen Groot, Rocket Raccoon, and Thor
This trio played by Chris Hemsworth and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper team up for much of Infinity War, venturing through the galaxy on a mission to stop Thanos.
4 of 16
Benedict Cumberbatch's sorcerer surpreme is in possession of the green Time Stone, which Thanos is going to need to relieve him of that to complete the Infinity Gauntlet.
5 of 16
Mark Ruffalo's big green guy will return to Earth after his galactic time-out in Thor: Ragnarok. He arrives, fittingly, by smashing a hole in Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum.

Star-Lord and Okoye
What could Chris Pratt's galactic smart-ass and Danai Gurira's no-nonsense Wakandan security chief have in common. Um ... music?
7 of 16
The Vision and Shuri
Letitia Wright's genius young Wakandan research and development chief would no doubt be fascinated by Paul Bettany's synthezoid, a living thing brought to life through magic, science, and Vibranium.
8 of 16
Chadwick Boseman's king has opened Wakanda to the rest of the world — now it will become the front line of a battle to save the universe.
9 of 16
Josh Brolin's Mad Titan already has two Infinity Stones. Back off.
10 of 16
Tom Holland sports the golden Iron Spider armor offered to him by Tony Stark at the end of Homecoming. He's going to bring it back with some damage.
11 of 16
Mantis and Winter Soldier
Sebastian Stan's rehabilitated assassin now goes by White Wolf. It's intriguing to see a man whose memories were scrambled, wiped, and rebuilt paired with Pom Klementieff's alien mind-reader.
12 of 16
War Machine and Drax the Destroyer
Don Cheadle's Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes was paralyzed in Civil War, but he's back in the iron suit now — paired with Dave Bautista's Drax, another stoic type who has lived with loss.
13 of 16
Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark will fire up the Bleeding Edge armor, which emerges across his body from a new arc reactor and includes "wings" on the back and arms that serve as rocket boosters into deep space.
14 of 16
Her ledger is ... complicated. Still haunted by her past, her loyalties are no longer to a country or a cause, but to her friends. Scarlett Johansson's hero brandishes electrified batons that can be connected into one staff.
15 of 16
It's been a long road for Chris Evans' do-gooder. Now wearing Vibranium shield gauntlets given to him by Black Panther, his suit shows signs of the wear and tear from being a fugitive from the homeland he once fought to protect.
16 of 16
Falcon and Gamora
Anthony Mackie's aeronaut and Zoe Saldana's alien assassin have more in common than you'd think. Both were trained as soldiers from a young age, both are skeptical of newcomers, and both are now making their own choices about what to fight for.
