Previously, it was stated by Disney that Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) was going to make her first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in her own solo film in 2019. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Joe of the Russo Brothers mentioned that Carol Danvers will make her first appearance sooner and will be involved in Infinity War.
“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.”
This interview is interesting because the Russos Brothers have said before that Captain Marvel wasn’t going to appear in InfinityWar after her scenes were cut. Perhaps more room was created for Danvers to get involved with helping protect Earth from Thanos. Or Captain Marvel fits in better with the storytelling as we know the movie will have a run time of two hours and 36 minutes, Marvel’s longest movie to date. Or this interview could have been done before the Russo Brothers decided to cut her scenes and the runtime is not even a factor in the decision.
It is also unknown whether or not, Captain Marvel will share any screen time with the other established superheroes if she does appear in Infinity War. I am hopeful that we get a really cool Captain Marvel introduction into the MCU regardless of whether she makes her first appearance in Avengers: Infinity War or Captain Marvel.
