‘Avengers’ Directors Reveal Why ‘Captain Marvel’ Was Excluded In The Movie
Now fans can learn the truth as to why ‘Captain Marvel’ was left out in Avengers: Infinity War.
Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War, explained the decision to exclude ‘Captain Marvel’ from the film in a Happy Sad Confused podcast, and addressed the query about whether she is likely to ever make an appearance in the film.
Joe answered no, as the directors “want[ed] to save her reveal.” Anthony added that they “wanted to commit to this ending very hard… We didn’t want to go past the ending very much.”
Brie Larson will be making her first appearance as ‘Carol Danvers’ in Captain Marvel, which will debut in March 2019. Based on the post-credits scene in Avengers: Infinity War where it teases her appearance at the end, it is apparent that she will be playing a major role in the upcoming Avengers 4.
When asked about her role in Avengers 4, the Russo brothers did not leak much additional details. “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 assured. “And part of the promise of these movies is that they are a road forward for all the films.”
