Directors On Exclusion Of Captain Marvel From ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Fans were expecting Captain Marvel to show up in the recently released Avengers: Infinity War, but, the same didn’t happen. In fact, two other Marvel superheroes Hawkeye and Ant-man also didn’t appear in the film.

Interestingly, Avengers: Infinity War’s end-credits scene had a major reference to Marvel’s female superhero character. The Captain Marvel logo showed up on a modified cellular pager that Nick Fury uses to message Carol Danvers just moments before he disappeared into dust in the wind.

During MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo were asked if Captain Marvel’s appearance in the film was ever in the cards. They said that they do have some valid reasons for holding off.

No, we want to save her reveal,” Joe said.

We also wanted to, it was very important to us to commit… we wanted to commit to this ending very hard,” Anthony said. “We didn’t want to go past the ending very much.”

And we considered not doing any tags. For that reason,” Joe added. “Then we thought maybe it was too brutal. Everything’s about trying to find balance.”

Brie Larson will be seen portraying the character of Carol Danvers in the solo Captain Marvel movie, which will debut in theaters in March 2019. It is expected that the reason behind the logo reveal in Avengers: Infinity War post-credits scene will be explained in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. It’s assumed that the female superhero will play a major role in bringing Thanos’ down in Avengers 4.

When the Russo brothers were asked if Carol Danvers would be significant to Avengers 4, they chose not to spill any secret out at this point.

I mean, all of these characters are. It’s hard to talk about the next one,” Joe said. “We’re going to try to protect the secrets of that one the same way that we did on this one.”

She will be a part of the MCU at that point,” Anthony added. “And part of the promise of these movies is that they are a road forward for all the films.”

The director duo also confirmed that they are not going to reveal the official Avengers 4 title anytime soon. Avengers 4 is scheduled to roll out in theatres in May 2019, while Captain Marvel will debut in theatres on March 8, 2019.
