Avengers: Infinity War may introduce a new Marvel character from the comics even though directors Joe and Anthony Russo admitted they already have a full roster of Marvel superheroes in the upcoming movie.
Anthony told Yahoo movies: “We already have our hands full trying to tell the story we have without pre-existing characters.”
Joe said: “Anthony would probably die from exhaustion if we introduced another character” but his brother added: “That’s not to say we’re not going to introduce a new character.”
When asked if the character in question could be Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Anthony replied: “That’s one we’re going to have to plead the fifth on.”
And after Anna Kendrick recently revealed her interest in playing Squirrel Girl, the directors are enthusiastic.
Joe said: “It would be perfect casting, and we’re huge Anna Kendrick fans.”
Meanwhile, Marvel Studios recently renamed the next two Avengers movies from Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2, to Avengers: Infinity War, with the fourth film now being classed as untitled.
Explaining the change, they told CinemaBlend: “We wanted the movie to be very different and distinctive, you know. There’s certainly cross-pollination between characters and some story arcs, but you know, the first movie is very clearly Avengers: Infinity War and, in time, we will reveal what the second film is.”
