The Russo's might have just confirmed Captain Marvel for Avengers: Infinity War Part 1.
During an event at the Smithsonian Institute, the Russo's were speaking about the upcoming Infinity War, when they mentioned Captain Marvel by name. A fan quickly pounced, asking "did you just confirm Captain Marvel". Russo replied "Um....Captain Barvel. Totally different character."

It is pretty safe to say that the Avengers will not be enlisting the services of Captain Barvel, though I'm amazed there isn't already a character going by that moniker. Safe to say that when Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 debuts in 2018, it will include Carol Danvers in some way, and hopefully at some point, in costume.
