It’s been less than 24 hours since Disney and Marvel dropped their Super Bowl teaser for Avengers: Infinity War and Marvel fans have already dissected every possible frame of the 30-second trailer with an oversized magnifying glass and image brightening technology. It’s led to some speculation that the spot, seen by over 100 million people during the broadcast, may have accidentally revealed a big surprise.
Beyond Spider-Man and Iron Man’s new suit or Captain America’s seemingly missing shield, the Marvel fan community is focusing on a specific moment 11 seconds into the trailer when Vision, Captain America/Nomad, and Black Widow are walking down a hall with a purpose. You can see someone behind Cap’s left arm for a brief second which very well could be Captain Marvel.
Take a look for yourself. Is that Captain Marvel’s star?
Captain Marvel’s ever-changing suit has been seen in promotional shots and paparazzi pics, and it does seem like this could be her walking with the Avengers. We also know that Infinity War will usher in a new era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so a new character entering the fray isn’t totally out of the question. In fact, we’ve seen this before with Spider-Man and Black Panther’s appearance in Civil War. Marvel eases people into their new heroes.
That said, some are saying it’s Scarlett Witch or Doctor Strange behind Mr. Rogers, which it very well could be.
We’ll find out on May 4th.
