How Captain Marvel Could Appear in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Could Captain Marvel make a surprise appearance in Avengers: Infinity War? We broke the possibility down on today’s Nerdist News Talk Back, along with more from Marvel, the new name and huge stunt for Mission Impossible 6, and Bill & Ted 3.

Host Jessica Chobot welcomed Mothership writer Amy Vorphal, Nerdist News writer Joey Clift, and producer Jason Nguyen on today’s show. They started with Infinity War co-director Anthony Russo’s comments┬áthat Carol Danvers might make an appearance in the movie. We’ve heard mixed reports about whether Captain Marvel will be show up, so does this confirm it or is he just teasing us? How would she even be introduced into the story? By Nick Fury or after the Guardians picked her up in space maybe? And do we really need a prelude comic to the movie to catch us up on all the characters?

Tom Cruise also joined Instagram just so he could release the name of the sixth Mission: Impossible, now called Fallout, as well as a sneak peek at his crazy new stunt for it. What do we make of the name? When do we think this movie will actually come out following all of Cruise’s injuries while shooting? What are we more excited for, the big helicopter stunt or Henry Cavill’s mustache? And how would we rank the first five films?

Finally, once again there’s talk of a third Bill & Ted, with new insights from screenwriter Ed Solomon. Bill & Ted Face the Music would see the guys in middle age dealing with their unfulfilled potential. Do we want to see this, or is it a blatant cash grab? What about the plan to include the late George Carlin with old, unused footage? Should they just leave him out, or is this a great way to keep Rufus involved? And how should they update a ’90s comedy for today?

Nerdist News Talks Back airs live every weekday at 1:00 p.m. PT on our YouTube and Alpha channels. We might not be expecting Carol Danvers to make a surprise visit to the studio, but we’re always happy when we get to talk about Captain Marvel.
