For better or worse, film fans are always going to have expectations for a movie as huge and as anticipated as Avengers: Infinity War. For me, expectations about a film should be about its overall quality, not about events or specific things that have to happen. Still, some cannot help themselves and will always speculate about what characters will do and, sometimes, about what characters will make an appearance. Indeed, thanks to the Disney-Fox deal, Marvel characters such as the X-Men and the Fantastic Four could appear in future films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
A Marvel antagonist who could appear thanks to this deal is the Silver Surfer but the Russo brothers, directors of Avengers: Infinity War, have been quick to state in an interview with Yahoo Movies that they do not currently have the rights to use the Silver Surfer. But, they did not deny that characters currently owned by 21st Century Fox such as the Silver Surfer may be seen in the MCU down the line. Here is what Joe Russo had to say about the situation:
“I don’t think we own Silver Surfer, but it’s fan-wish fulfillment and, you know, if this Disney-Fox deal goes through there’s going to be a lot more characters coming into the Marvel universe, so some of those crazy fan theories might come true.”
Joe Russo also spoke about the changes we could see in the MCU once Phase 4 begins:
“I think massively different. I think that this is if Marvel has been writing a book for ten years, it’s the end of the book and someone is going to write a new book. Who knows what that new book will be but this is an ending and that’ll be a new beginning.”
