The following post contains SPOILERS for Avengers: Infinity War. Technically is it a spoiler if it’s about someone who isn’t in a movie? Isn’t that the opposite of a spoiler? What would you call the opposite of a spoiler anyway? A fresher? Eh, whatever.

It can seem at times like very single Marvel character in history is in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s certainly got a lot of heroes and villains; 40 by our count. But that still leaves a fair number out, including some of the biggest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Some of these characters will probably appear in Avengers 4 next summer (a few will definitely be in it). Others, just didn’t fit into a story that was so overstuffed as it was. And a few are from the Marvel Netflix television series, which are supposedly in the MCU but at this point let’s get real: Are they really? It feels like at a certain point they should notice the world is coming to an end and try to help? C’mon Defenders, it’s time to step up.

Here are 15 of the biggest MCU characters and teams who no showed Avengers: Infinity War. But look at it this way: Leaving them out of Infinity War means that Avengers 4 will almost definitely outdo it next year when it opens in theaters on May 3.
