In a recent interview with Forbes, Joe Russo discussed his next Marvel movie (which will be co-directed with his brother) Infinity Wars and the potential for new additions to the MCU rosta. We already know that Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange will be making their first Avengers film appearances but the implication here is that these will be brand new characters which have never been seen before. This was in the same interview that confirmed for us the Captain America: Civil War end credits scenes.
After outing the new additions he went on to say that “It’s a big sprawling ambitious movie, it’s about as ambitious as movies get and it should be, and the title alone indicates that there will be an incredible scape and scope to it.”
There were at last count almost 67 characters featured in Infinity Wars and that was quite some time ago. But there are still a few films to go till the big baddy Thanos makes his mark in Infinity Wars, with six standalone movies until Infinity Wars: Part 1 in 2018.
Captain America: Civil War will be our next dip into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on May 6th (North America). Which characters from the comics do you want to see introduced next? Let us know in the comments below!
