“Avengers: Infinity War” is set to be the biggest crossover event in cinematic history. However, not every big character will be in the upcoming blockbuster.
Although the yet-untitled “Avengers 4” was originally going to be a second part of the “Infinity War” story, that is no longer the case. It’s been confirmed that the core members of the Avengers will be in “Infinity War”. However, some major heroes will be giving Thanos’ initial arrival a miss and are slated to appear in the 2019 “Avengers” film instead.
The biggest superhero that is appearing in “Avengers 4” but not “Infinity War” is Captain Marvel. Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson will only make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel next year’s “Captain Marvel”.
Fans were expecting Captain Marvel to be introduced in a similar method a la Spider-Man and Black Panther in “Captain America: Civil War”. Unfortunately, plans changed down the line and Captain Marvel won’t be a player in “Infinity War”. The 28-year-old star will only reprise her role as Earth’s Mightiest Hero in “Avengers 4“.
Surprisingly, another character confirmed for “Avengers 4” but will be missing out in “Infinity War” is Hope van Dyne/The Wasp. Evangeline Lilly previously made her cinematic debut in 2015’s “Ant-Man”. She will officially become The Wasp in “Ant-Man & the Wasp” later this year. Sadly, Lilly revealed that Wasp only has a minor role in “Avengers 4”.
“Avengers: Infinity War” hits Malaysian theatres on 25th April 2018.
