Kevin Feige confirms Captain Marvel's story will cross over to Avengers 4

The long-standing rumor that Captain Marvel will show up in Avengers 4 has been confirmed by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.

Right now the final publicity push is on for Thor: Ragnarok, and Feige has been doing a lot of talking about that movie as well as other upcoming MCU films, particularly the next two Avengers outings and the debut of Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel will be released after Avengers: Infinity War but before Avengers 4, and while there have been reports of Captain Marvel star Brie Larson showing up to the Avengers set, those sightings were never officially confirmed by Marvel -- until now. Speaking about how Carol's story will weave its way into the overall MCU saga, Feige told Indiewire:

"We’re really focusing on 'Captain Marvel’ and the work that (directors) Anna (Boden) and Ryan (Fleck) are doing. It’s going to be a big part of heading towards this epic conclusion and epic finale of 22 movies over the course of 10 years. That is the focus for the next six movies we have to finish and get out. The focus now is on delivering ‘Captain Marvel’ and then bringing Captain Marvel’s story into the finale of everything we’ve started thus far."

In other words, Captain Marvel will indeed turn up in Avengers 4, and whatever storyline gets started in Carol's solo movie will cross over to the Avengers saga and resolve itself there as well.

Of course, there are still unanswered questions: will Carol make a cameo in Infinity War? And with her solo movie set in the 1990s, how does that line up chronogically with the near-future events of the Avengers films?

More clues to come, no doubt. Thor: Ragnarok opens on November 3, 2017, while Avengers: Infinity War is out May 2018, Captain Marvel is scheduled for March 8, 2019 and Avengers 4 arrives on May 3, 2019.
