Marvel Studios’ filmmakers are usually experts at keeping things under wraps, but the Russo Brothers may have just accidentally revealed a major spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War Part One.
Comicbook.com got the scoop:
During an event at the Smithsonian Institute, the Russo’s were speaking about the upcoming Infinity War, when they mentioned Captain Marvel by name. A fan quickly pounced, asking “did you just confirm Captain Marvel”. Russo replied “Um….Captain Barvel. Totally different character.”
The (poor) recovery seemingly infers that the Russos had no intention of making the reveal, and had no planned recourse.
Carol Danver’s solo flick isn’t scheduled until after Avengers: Infinity War Part One, so it’s been a mystery whether or not she would show up in the film.
Neither Marvel nor the Russo Brothers have issued any sort of statement as of yet.
