Josh Brolin, the actor who plays Thanos in the MCU, recently did a live Instagram video in which he said that he will be working with Benicio Del Toro on Avengers: Infinity War along with Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana this week.
That basically confirms that The Collector will be in Avengers: Infinity War. Yesterday, it was revealed that Thanos is the main character in Infinity War, which led me to speculate that the story will follow Thanos on his journey across the galaxy to collect all of the Infinity Stones to rule the galaxy. If that is indeed the case, it makes perfect sense for The Collector to be in the film because he's in possession of one of the stones.
The character made his big screen debut in the post-credits scene for Thor: The Lost World, and the last time we saw him his museum was left in shambles at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy. There's no word on how big of a role the character will have in the movie, but once Thanos gets what he came for, I'm sure that will be the end of it.
With the movie currently in production, I'm sure Marvel will, at least, give us an official synopsis so that we at least know the basic plot of the film.
Infinity War is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and it's set to open on May 4, 2018. I also included a photo of Del Toro below when he was recently spotted in the area where Infinity War is currently shooting.
