Captain Marvel confirmed to appear in ‘Avengers Infinity War’

Avengers: Infinity War will be a blockbuster full of Marvel characters both good and bad and while discussing the future beyond Captain America: Civil War, the Russo brothers confirmed that Captain Marvel will be joining the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the fight against the Mad Titan, Thanos.

When they were called out on the spoiler dropping during the talk the Smithsonian Institute, a fan quickly took the opportunity to ask the directors, “Did you just confirm Captain Marvel?” The directors then replied the best way they could. “Um….Captain Barvel. Totally different character.”

During an interview with Collider, the Russo brothers spoke about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes possibly going off-world, and maybe even out of their universe when dealing with Thanos in Avenger: Infinity War.

“We still have rules where we want everything to be based in physics in some way, or departing from our universe, or going to somewhere fantastical that the rules are very clear to the audience about how physics operates in that space,” explained director Joe Russo.

“So we’re using a lot of real world influences for our cosmic approach and while you can’t bring a level of ‘realism’ because a lot of things that you’re dealing with in that space are theoretical, what you can do is bring a psychological realism to it and the characters can have a psychology that is relatable in a human storytelling level.”

Thanos will tear through the Marvel Universe to collect the Infinity Stones, so the Russos were asked about whether fans would see Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) unleashing her true power on Thanos.

“I don’t think we’ve seen her scratch the surface yet of her power, she’s an extremely powerful character, and I think she’s a very important character moving forward. Let’s just say that,” director Joe Russo replied.

He then went on to talk about how the Vision has been holding back the entire time. “Vision (Paul Bettany) is another character who I don’t think has realized his power yet. It’s tricky in Civil War because he’s a very logical character and I think his thought process is being complicate by something he didn’t expect that he could access which is emption. And I think his feelings for a certain character in that film complicate his powers as well, and I think frankly he willingly takes a back seat in some events in the movie because he’s so powerful that there’s not –If he’s gonna blast somebody with his mind ray he’d kill them, so I think when he faces a true threat I think you’ll see what he can do.”

Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and is being written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Part One hits theaters May 4th, 2018, and Part Two May 3rd, 2019.

Captain Marvel does not have a director at this point. Meg LeFauve has been hired to write the screenplay. The film will arrive in theaters on March 8, 2019.
