'Avengers: Infinity War' may introduce a new character from the Marvel comics

'Avengers: Infinity War' may introduce a new character.

Although directors Joe and Anthony Russo admitted they already have a full roster of Marvel superheroes in the upcoming movie, they admitted that other fan-favourites could make an appearance.

Anthony told Yahoo movies: "We already have our hands full trying to tell the story we have without pre-existing characters."

Joe said: "Anthony would probably die from exhaustion if we introduced another character" but his brother added: "That's not to say we're not going to introduce a new character."

When asked if the character in question could be Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Anthony replied: "That's one we're going to have to plead the fifth on."

And after Anna Kendrick recently revealed her interest in playing Squirrel Girl, the directors are enthusiastic.

Joe said: "It would be perfect casting, and we're huge Anna Kendrick fans."

Meanwhile, Marvel Studios recently renamed the next two 'Avengers' movies from 'Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2', to 'Avengers: Infinity War', with the fourth film now being classed as untitled.

Explaining the change, they told CinemaBlend: "We wanted the movie to be very different and distinctive, you know. There's certainly cross-pollination between characters and some story arcs, but you know, the first movie is very clearly Avengers: Infinity War and, in time, we will reveal what the second film is."

Thanos (Brolin) aims to become all-powerful, in the first part of this two-part superhero mash-up. Death, destruction, torture and sacrifice are the order of the day, in a grand space opera that mixes tragedy with pathos, fleshed out with the usual Marvel humour. Truly remarkable.
