CAPTAIN MARVEL Could Debut In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR After All, According To New Russo Brothers Interview

Following this week's report claiming Captain Marvel wouldn't debut in Avengers: Infinity War, we've now got a new interview with directors Joe and Anthony Russo suggesting Carol Danvers will show up!

There is tons of mystery surrounding Avengers: Infinity War, but one question we can't seem to get a straight answer on is whether or not Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, will make her grand debut in the film.

Just this week, it was reported that Infinity War co-director Joe Russo confirmed that fans wouldn't get to see Captain Marvel on the big screen until Avengers 4. However, the report stemmed from a quote made by Joe Russo at San Diego Comic Con back in July, which was further backed by Disney (via Comicbook.com). Turns out, this may not be true at all.

A newly published ET interview with the Russo Brothers now seemingly suggests Captain Marvel could very well show up in Infinity War after all! During the interview, the directors mention the fan-favorite character as part of the amazing ensemble of female heroes we'll see in the upcoming film.

"Yeah, we have some great female characters in this," Joe Russo said. "Captain Marvel is in it, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, we have Wakanda is coming in and there's a whole group of characters that are coming from the Wakandan universe, from the Black Panther universe. Amazingly strong characters, strong-willed characters, and we have the Guardians, and two of the Guardians are daughters of Thanos so there's a really strong connection to the main villain of the story and I think you'll see in the film that they're very pivotal to the storyline and I think the arcs are fantastic so, we're really really proud of being able to introduce Captain Marvel in this one."

Now it's possible Russo could be referring to the cast of females in both the third and fourth Avengers installments, with Captain Marvel only appearing in the latter movie. What's odd about his statement, though, is that he claims to be the one to introduce the character despite her movie releasing months before Avengers 4

Captain Marvel is currently slated to hit theaters March 8, 2019, while Avengers 4 isn't due out until months later on May 3, 2019. So either he's got his dates and movies mixed up or Marvel is just playing mind games with us at this point. Check out the full interview below. Skip to the 5:50 mark for the specific moment where he mentions the women of Marvel, including Captain Marvel.



The good news is we'll get an answer to one of the film's biggest mysteries soon enough as Avengers: Infinity War is set to hit theaters on April 27, 2018.
