Zeke surrounds the Survey corps with a horde of titans to block their escape during the return to shiganshina arc, Zeke using his titan powers to make them appear. But he cannot just create titans, he needed people to do it, how did he get those people?? Where they from the walls, or just willing eldians from the "hometown" outside the walls? Because I dont think he could just control people and make them stand in formation like that, I thought it was only titans he could control. I say that because I dont think that any sensable human would willingly turn into a mindless titan for their country. This has really been bugging me, thanks
Probably the other kids from the warrior project, sold at the tener age of 5-6 so that their family could live as an honorary Marley, think of them as Kamikaze...or maybe some desperate soul who wanted their family to be taken care of in exchange of their sacrifice.
I doubt Marley would create a cure for the mindless titans if they want them as an ultimate weapon...and if they do it's probably secret and they wouldn't release it useless the shifters rebel aganist them.

Marley only controls 7 Titan Shifters (including Zeke, Annie, Reiner, Bertolt, and Marcel), so there's no way all of the Titans were shifters. They were all mindless.
It has been hinted that Zeke is able to transform humans into Titans remotely, so my assumption is that he took a bunch of Eldians from Liberio (or any other Internment Zones) to Shiganshina and remotely transformed them when it was time for the battle to start.
I've had the assumption for some time now that the power of Zeke's Titan is to create other Titans, like how the Founding Titan can manipulate memories and actions and how Annie's Titan can attract Titans in large numbers.
And based on how there were no Titans present at Shiganshina when the Survey Corps arrived, it's also very possible that Zeke could have used his power to take those Titans at Shiganshina and "store them away" until the time came for the battle.
I dont think he brought people because the scouts had people looking around for the enemy, they WOULD of seen people running around getting into formation, So i dont think that it was humans he used to create them. I just think that maybe its a power he has, its a pretty bs power if its true, but I dont see how anything else would of done it.
