No, Captain Marvel Is Not Featured In Avengers: Infinity War


Brie Larson’s MCU debut looks to have been shelved until 2019.

This past weekend saw another flurry of rumors suggesting that Captain Marvel was a shoo-in for Avengers: Infinity War, leading many to assume that Carol Danvers would receive a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo similar to Flash’s bit part in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Turns out that’s not the case, after Disney (h/t /Film) confirmed today that Captain Marvel won’t be featured in Avengers: Infinity War whatsoever, and that Brie Larson’s first screen appearance as the supercharged heroine will be arriving in 2019 – across both Captain Marvel and the so-far untitled Avengers 4.

It’s a pretty conclusive answer to one of Infinity War‘s biggest rumors – even if there’s still a small chance that she’ll crop up during the sequel’s after-credits scenes, which aren’t necessarily considered a part of the movie. Regardless, this latest deluge of rumors can actually be traced back to Joe Russo’s comments to Entertainment Tonight, which strongly suggest that Marvel originally intended to carve out room for Carol Danvers in Avengers: Infinity War, only to cut the footage at the 11th hour:

Yeah, we have some great female characters in this. 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.

Of course, there’s a good chance that Joe Russo simply spoke out of turn – after all, he is juggling one of the biggest casts ever assembled alongside Anthony Russo. But we’ll find out for sure once Avengers: Infinity War bows on April 27th.
