Considering that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War are hands down the best two Marvel installments so far, it makes sense to trust in the Russo Brothers. The directing pair are box office gold for Marvel, and heroes to comicbook fans everywhere. So when Anthony and Joe Russo discuss Avengers: Infinity War, we listen.
But that doesn't mean the duo can't have some fun... with us. After it was revealed that Brie Larson will be Captain Marvel, the duo refuse to give fans any further details. Such as, can we expect to see the character in Infinity War? If so, what other Marvel characters can make a showing?
Captain Marvel a Possibility in Infinity War
While talking with the Toronto Sun, the Russo Brothers refuse to confirm whether Captain Marvel will show her mug in Infinity War. They are, however, excited to have such a new talent added to the roster.
“Not only is she an amazingly talented actor but she’s a wonderful human being. We’re really looking forward to the opportunity of re-teaming with her if we were to get the chance to work with that character,” said Joe.
As we begin to scratch our heads in wonder, Anthony explains that she isn't the only possibility for Infinity War. According to him, they've opened up their menu of Marvel characters to select from.
Netflix Marvel Characters a Possibility
Thanks to Netflix, a collection of other Marvel characters are having their day. Everybody now knows of Daredevil, but there is also Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defender and The Punisher. According to Anthony Russo, any one of these could also transition over to a Marvel film. This should come as good news for Chris Pratt.
“We do consider everyone,” said Anthony Russo. “We don’t want to get too specific about what’s going to happen with these movies. [As] we want these movies to be a surprise for audiences.”
“What we did in Civil War is exactly what we want to do in the Avengers — no matter how much screen time a character has, you can still have a lot of ambition for what you do with that character while you have them,” said Anthony, pointing to Ant-Man’s short but memorable appearance in Civil War as an example.
So Ant-Man paved the way for other Marvel heroes? We can dig that, especially if Michael Pena is allowed to come along.
