The entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will band together for the first time in Avengers: Infinity War, the third official team-up film in the franchise. Most of the MCU’s A-listers have banded together or clashed in one way or another before, but Infinity War will bring together a whopping 67 characters. Given the span of the MCU, we thought we’d round up the location of every important hero (and villain) you should care about in Infinity War.

The main Avengers fell apart during Captain America: Civil War, with fan favorites Tony Stark’s Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers’ Captain America (Chris Evans) pitted against each other, forcing the remaining members of the Avengers to choose sides; the Guardians defeated Peter Quill’s father, Ego, in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and a host of newbies will join up with all of them for Infinity War.

Here’s where everyone you care about in this glorious mess is right before Infinity War.

Tony Stark, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Spider-Man: Homecoming; Tony Stark was preparing to propose to Pepper Potts in front of a gaggle of reporters after Peter Parker’s Spider-Man turned down an official role on the Avengers team.

Current (probable) location: upstate New York, New Avengers headquarters.

Steve Rogers, Captain America (Chris Evans)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Captain America: Civil War; Steve Rogers flew his old pal Bucky Barnes to Wakanda to put him on ice while the Wakandans figured out a way to deprogram his brain of all the nasty shit Hydra did to him.

Current (probable) location: Um, Russia? Hanging out with the Inhumans on the moon? As a rogue agent on the run from his own government, Steve probably doesn’t stick around one place for too long.

Peter Quill, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2; Peter and the rest of the Guardians defeated his father, Ego, and flew off aboard the Milano in search of their next adventure — which will apparently involve wiping Thor off their windshield.

Current (probable) location: somewhere in the Andromeda Galaxy.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Thor: Ragnarok; we gotta wait for Ragnarok to premiere before we know Thor’s fate pre-Infinity War. Don’t get ahead of yourselves, people. The only thing we do know is that Thor gets owned in an opening scene of Infinity War, though we’re not sure how he got into space…

Current (probable) location: somewhere in space?

Natasha Romanoff, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Captain America: Civil War; Natasha was approached by Tony Stark at the end of Civil War and was accused of only being good at one thing: betraying people. She threatened him, then ran.

Current (probable) location: unknown, presumably on the run from Thaddeus Ross and Tony Stark.

Bruce Banner, the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Thor: Ragnarok; there’s no telling yet what will happen in Ragnarok. Bruce and Thor will team up to save Asgard and the universe and somehow end up back on Earth.

Current (probable) location: We don’t know; be patient.

Clint Barton, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Captain America: Civil War; Steve Rogers broke Clint out of the Raft along with the rest of their team members at the end of Civil War.

Current (probable) location: hunkered down with his family at a safe house. Don’t you dare try to find them and blow their cover.

Gamora (Zoe Saldana)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2; Gamora and the Guardians beat down Peter Quill’s dad, Ego, and saved the galaxy — again.

Current (probable) location: somewhere in the Andromeda Galaxy.

Peter Parker, Spider-Man (Tom Holland)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Spider-Man: Homecoming; Peter Parker turns down Tony Stark’s offer to be an official member of the Avengers in order to focus on school, become a better hero, and be a kid for a little while longer.

Current (probable) location: Queens, New York, hanging out with Ned and Aunt May.

Scott Lang, Ant-Man (Paul Rudd)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Captain America: Civil War; Scott tried to be clever and one-up Tony Stark, but he was deemed irrelevant. Luckily for him, that didn’t stop Steve from breaking him and the rest of their team out of the Raft.

Current (probable) location: maybe San Francisco, but he’s got to be hiding like all the other Raft escapees.

T’Challa, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Black Panther; fans will have to wait and see what happens in Black Panther.

Current (probable) location: Wakanda.

Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper)

Current (probable) location: hanging out with Steve Rogers somewhere in the world.

Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Captain America: Civil War; after a grueling showdown against Tony Stark, Steve took Bucky to Wakanda on King T’Challa’s offer of protection. Bucky, determined to be deprogrammed of his Hydra training, was put in stasis until someone can figure out what’s going on with him.

Current (probable) location: Wakanda, on ice.

Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista)

Current (probable) location: somewhere in the Andromeda Galaxy.

## Wanda Maximoff, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)

Current (probable) location: following Steve Rogers around the world.

Vision (Paul Bettany)

Current (probable) location: upstate New York, New Avengers headquarters.

Teen Groot (Vin Diesel)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2; Groot, in baby form, kind of helped the rest of the Guardians defeat Ego. He’s been growing quickly, though, and is expected to be in teenager form by the time Infinity War rolls around.

Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Captain America: Civil War; This piece of work, Thaddeus Ross, was last seen locking up Steve Rogers’ team and going bug-eyed at the idea that Steve could ever break them out of the Raft.

Current (probable) location: a U.S. government building.

James Rhodes, War Machine (Don Cheadle)

Current (probable) location: We have no clue; wait for Ragnarok.

Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau)

Last appearance before Infinity War: Spider-Man: Homecoming; Happy drove Peter Parker upstate to the New Avengers headquarters so Tony Stark could introduce Peter to the press.

Current (probable) location: upstate New York, New Avengers headquarters, doing Tony’s bidding.
