The Russo Brothers Talk About Star-Lord and Thor Showing Up in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
I'm trying not to read too much before I see it for myself, but I know that critics who saw an early screening really enjoyed Captain America: Civil War. That's a great sign, because I was worried that the increased number of characters would be too much for one movie to deal with and the MCU would start to sag under the weight of its own ambition. But it sounds like the Russo Brothers pulled it off, and that's very, very good news for one key reason: the next two Marvel movies they make are going to be even bigger.
Avengers: Infinity War is starting to peek over the horizon, and speaking with ComicBook.com, the directors teased the appearance of two more heroes who will appear in at least one part of that juggernaut of a movie — including coming about as close as possible to confirming the long-rumored Guardians of the Galaxy crossover:
Anthony: "The movies are intended to be a culmination of everything that's happened before in the MCU so you don't want to get into spoilers but I'm a big fan of what James Gunn has done. [Joe Russo and I] are both big fans of what James Gunn has done. Star-Lord is a fantastic character and Chris Pratt is an awesome performer so you'd be very excited."
Joe: "I'm excited to work with Thor. They're doing some really interesting stuff with Ragnarok and where he's gonna be at the beginning of Infinity War is gonna be a very interesting place and I think very profound. I think he's gonna have a real emotional motivation after that."
So it sounds like both Star-Lord and Thor are going to be getting in on the action. Not super surprising, but it's still nice to hear. Now all we need is for someone to get the directors to confirm whether or not the MCU characters from the Netflix shows are going to show up in the movie at some point.
Captain America: Civil War arrives on May 6th; Thor: Ragnarok rains down on November 3, 2017; Avengers: Infinity War — Part 1 hits on May 4, 2018; and Part 2 blasts into theaters on May 3, 2019.
