Marvel is always expanding their universe both on TV and on on the big screen, but so far the two have only come into contact with each other on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and even then it is doled out in small spurts.
The upcoming Russo Brother directed Avengers: Infinity War will include a wealth of Marvel characters, including the heavily speculated debut of Captain Marvel. Still, there are many who would love to see the Netflix universe, which includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, mingle with the big screen heroes. There hasn't been any indication that it will actually happen, but the Russo's aren't remotely closing the door on the idea, as they told the Toronto Sun.
“We do consider everyone,” said Anthony Russo. “We don’t want to get too specific about what’s going to happen with these movies. We want these movies to be a surprise for audiences.”
As for their newest addition, Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, they had nothing but great things to say about the phenomenal casting.
“It’s an incredible piece of casting. You couldn’t ask for better,” Joe said of Larson. “Not only is she an amazingly talented actor but she’s a wonderful human being. We’re really looking forward to the opportunity of re-teaming with her…”
That last comment pretty much cements that fans will likely see the character's debut in Infinity War.
If the Netflix characters did appear in the film, it would most likely be a brief cameo appearance, as the movie already boasts a packed lineup of Avengers, and will no doubt also include heroes like Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Winter Solider, and confirmed appearances from heroes like Groot. With all those heroes in the mix, giving them something to do worthy of their screentime is always a challenge, but Anthony Russo says the end result will be just as good as Captain America: Civil War.
“What we did in Civil War is exactly what we want to do in the Avengers — no matter how much screen time a character has, you can still have a lot of ambition for what you do with that character while you have them.0comments
There is no doubt the Russo's can handle the large cast of characters, but expectations are high for the sheer scale that a story like Infinity War promises. In the meantime, you can check out the top five things we want to see the from the much-anticipated film here.
