Avengers: Infinity War is not just the highest grossing comic book movie of all times, it’s also become pop culture phenomenon. The ending of the movie shook us all as we saw our favorite superheroes turning into dust as Thanos destroyed half the life in the universe at the snap of his finger.
Since then fans and artists have been imagining in their own creative ways of what’s about to come in Avengers 4. In the post-credits of Infinity War, we saw Nick Fury sending a distress signal to Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel alerting her of the dire situation before he turned into dust. The actress Brie Larson has been cast as Danvers/Marvel and here’s what Feige said:
“With Captain Marvel, there’s so much potential in the comics and there have been so many incarnations of her powers and the characters who’ve had that mantle that we’ve been focusing in on exactly how do we tell her origin. How does it fit into the cosmic side of our universe? How does it fit into what we’re doing with the next Avengers movies?”
He added “All of the Marvel characters have flaws to them, all of them have a deep humanity to them. With Captain Marvel, she is as powerful a character as we’ve ever put in a movie. Her powers are off the charts, and when she’s introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we’ve ever had. It’s important, then, to counterbalance that with someone who feels real. She needs to have a humanity to tap into, and Brie can do that.”
Brie Larson in the recent interview stated that this was really a huge decision:
“There’s a lot about it that felt like a big decision and it’s not just a big decision for myself, it’s a big decision for my family and my partner and for my friends. It’s a big change for everybody and I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing for me.”
She added: “I never want to do, make artistic decisions that will feel like a burden or that would take me away from the parts of my life that I find fulfilling so Marvel was super patient and allowed me a lot of time to think it over and then once I felt like I had made the right decision which was doing it I got both feet in and I’m really happy.”

An artist named Raikchak Reang took to his Instagram and created a fan-art which featured the epic showdown between Thanos and Captain Marvel. Interestingly, Captain Marvel is wearing the gauntlet and Mad Titan ‘Thanos’ is turning into dust, getting a taste of his own medicine.
Well, how the remaining Avengers and Captain Marvel join forces and manage to defeat Thanos probably be shown in the upcoming Avengers 4!
“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Joe Russo told Deadline during SDCC 2018.
He added: “We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
The ensemble cast of Avengers 4 is breathtakingly amazing as some of the biggest stars have been brought by Marvel including Josh Brolin (Thanos), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), Vin Diesel (Groot), Jeremy Reiner (Hawkeye), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Evangeline Lilly (Wasp), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Tom Holland (Spiderman), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch), Karen Gillian (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Dave Bautista (Drax), Paul Bettany (Vision), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel).
