The mastermind behind the magnificent movies of Marvel, Kevin Feige, recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly and discussed the reason for the film's setting. Infinity War is the biggest event on the Marvel calendar right now, but the introduction of Carol Danvers into the MCU is arguably more important, particularly since Infinity War is already a guaranteed blockbuster regardless of how fans will ultimately respond to it. It will also be interesting to see the MCU in its pre-Iron Man stage. It's a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters [Dora Milaje, Shuri] you just named.

"Well, not necessarily talking about any particulars of the story, but the action elements in Terminator 2", he said when talking about the film's '90s influences.

The fact that Avengers: Infinity War takes the cake regarding length isn't really shocking news though, as over 30 heroes will have to get their fair share of screen time since the ultra-baddy Thanos visits earth to collect the three infinity stones he's missing in his golden gauntlet.

In no particular order, here's what we reckon, based on idle speculation, personal preference, what we think would be good and who we remembered exists.

A scene from X-Men Apocalypse. Featuring a blast from the past with a 90s setting and a possible return of Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, the big news is that Samuel L. Jackson will also be back as (a two-eyed) Nick Fury.

And you know what, we would love to see Kendrick walking around in the fictional African nation of Wakanda as a rival to the hero.

The Captain Marvel cast includes Brie Larson as the title hero along with Jackson as a younger (and two-eyed) Nick Fury, Gemma Chan as Kree spy and genetiscist, Minn-Erva, DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One,Ready Player One), and Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes).

What happens after Avengers 4?

As for that '90s action-movie vibe, Feige assures fans that there will be lots of cosmic fun in Captain Marvel, but that doesn't mean the hallmarks of the era won't sneak their way in.

The new The Avengers: Infinity War trailer is confirmed to be released soon! Of course not. It means the movies after that will be changed.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27, 2018.

Though he'll be fighting the Avengers toward some monstrous, death-dealing ends, Brolin insists the character is smart, compassionate, even sympathetic.
