The brothers made their accidental announcement at a Q&A session for the movie when they were asked which characters would appear. Listing off several of the heroes, they mentioned Captain Marvel before seeming to realize what they had just done. This was immediately picked up by the audience, with one attendee asking them to clarify, to which one of them quipped, “Um… Captain Barvel. Totally different character.”
All jokes aside, their refusal to clearly walk back their statement suggests that Captain Marvel will play a role in Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to start shooting later this year:
“We already started them, a couple months ago,” Joe Russo says of the films. “We had to. We start shooting in November, two movies back to back. So we need two scripts ASAP, and we probably started working on them six months ago.”
“As soon as we got into post on this movie, we gave ourselves a few weeks to transition and then we spent half days with the writers, and half in the edit room, for months,” Anthony adds. “We’ll get the first draft of both scripts when this movie opens.”
