Captain Marvel Will Appear in Avengers: Infinity War Before Her Solo Movie
We're officially going to see Captain Marvel in action sooner than we thought. The new addition to the MCU will get her own movie in 2018, but a few months before that, we'll get to see her introduction in Avengers: Infinity War part 1.

Although many fans had already predicted her appearance, the Russos accidentally confirmed it during an event at the Smithsonian Institute (via Comicbook.com). They mentioned her name in connection with Infinity War part 1, and when a fan asked if they were confirming that Captain Marvel was in the movie, they (very badly) tried to cover up the slip by saying that Captain "Barvel" would instead be joining the Avengers. 

It only makes sense that they would want to introduce Captain Marvel in Infinity War rather than her own film. Marvel has increasingly been introducing new characters in group movies rather than giving them their own origin story, in order to avoid getting repetitive. And after the huge success of Spider-Man and Black Panther's intros in Captain America: Civil War, we can probably expect them to stick to that formula for a while.

Avengers: Infinity War part 1 hits theaters on May 4, 2018, while Captain Marvel opens on July 6 of the same year.
