Avengers: Infinity War is still a ways away from its theatrical release, but that hasn’t stopped anyone from speculating over what the movie might entail. As is always the case with new Marvel flicks, there are plenty of rumors about which new heroes will get introduced, what cameos we should expect, and what the movie will mean for the company’s overall cinematic universe.
Here’s a closer look at seven new rumors currently circulating about Infinity War.
1. The movie may introduce a new, much-anticipated hero
Moviegoers will likely be meeting another long-awaited fan favorite in Infinity War. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently teased that the third sequel for the team of heroes will add yet another new name to Marvel’s already crowded roster. As Anthony Russo recently confirmed to Yahoo Movies, the directors have their “hands full trying to tell the story we have with our pre-existing characters” but “that’s not to say we’re not going to introduce a new character.”
So who might this new hero be? The most obvious and widely rumored pick is Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel (teased in an Instagram post above), who will get her own solo movie in 2019. Still the Russo brothers have refused to confirm the theory, saying, “That’s one we’re going to have to plead the Fifth on.”
