AceShowbiz - After long-rumored to appear in "Avengers 4", it's finally confirmed that Captain Marvel will indeed be in the film. When talking about the future of the MCU's female characters in an interview with IndieWire, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that the events of Brie Larson's solo film, "Captain Marvel", would work their way into the fourth "Avengers" movie.
Feige told the outlet that "there are a lot of discussions, they all focus on the post-Phase Three, 'Avengers 4' film, so nothing that we'll get into publicly." He continued, "We're really focusing on 'Captain Marvel' and the work that [directors] Anna [Boden] and Ryan [Fleck] are doing. It's going to be a big part of heading towards this epic conclusion and epic finale of 22 movies over the course of 10 years. That is focus for the next six movies we have to finish and get out."
The 44-year-old film producer went on explaining, "Really, the focus now is on delivering 'Captain Marvel' and then bringing Captain Marvel's story into the finale of everything we've started thus far."
There's no additional detail on which part of "Avengers 4" Captain Marvel, whose alter ego is Carol Danvers, will be in. The mightiest Avenger will first make her big-screen debut in "Captain Marvel" which is set to arrive in theaters across the nation on March 8, 2019. Boden and Fleck are directing from a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
