Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently revealed to Uproxx’s Mike Ryan that Avengers: Infinity War parts one and two will be given new titles (and the second part of that interview — where they discuss the DC expanded universe, Isaac Perlmutter, and the “Lonely Thanos” Twitter account — is here).
Now they’ve revealed more about Infinity War, although this time it seems to have been accidental. During a fan Q&A at the Smithsonian Institute, they mentioned Captain Marvel while discussing Infinity War, which prompted a fan to ask, “Did you just confirm Captain Marvel?”
“Um… Captain Barvel. Totally different character,” one of the brothers joked, according to Comic Book. Good save. That was a close one.
We already know it’s supposed to be the Carol Danvers version of Captain Marvel, and she nearly had a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was scrapped for good reasons: They wanted to give her a better entrance and more screen time. They also need to cast somebody soon; we’ve heard casting speculation about Emily Blunt, Charlize Theron, Ronda Rousey, Bryce Dallas Howard and Rebecca Ferguson so far, but nothing’s official.
