The Russo brothers say Infinity War Part I and II will have a name change PLUS a big Marvel character will appear

It’s not too often Joe and anthony Russo, the brothers behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War and Marvel’s new golden boys, make a mistake…

And, to be honest, we don’t think we’re seeing it here either… despite the ruse.

During an event at the Smithsonian Institute, according to comicbook, the brothers were talking about their next project at Marvel, Infinity War (more on that in a minute), when thy seemingly accidentally mentioned the involvement of Captain Marvel.

“did you just confirm Captain Marvel?!” asked one eagle-eared fan and they got “Um….Captain Barvel. Totally different character.”

Phew, close call.

So it looks like we’ll be seeing Carol Danvers in the fight against Thanos. Cool beans, indeed.

As for the title of the two-part Avengers Infinity War, it seems the name is set for an upheaval.

Speaking to Uproxx, the Russos said of Infinity War Part I and Part II: “The movies are two very different movies,” said Joe.

Anthony went on to say the link between the movies is ‘misleading’ as they won’t play out as one big story as most sequels do: “It is misleading. The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them.”

So they will have new titles? Wonder what this will mean for the stories? Hmmmmmmm…


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
