One of my biggest fears about Avengers: Infinity War is that the film might be too big for its own good. With so many moving parts in Marvel Studios’ biggest movie yet, there’s a real danger of many of the characters we love getting lost in the shuffle and ending up without much to do.
But when I spoke with actor Chris Pratt yesterday during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 junket in West Hollywood, I asked him about Infinity War and his comments about the Guardians’ involvement assuaged some of my fears.

A Marvel movie, even one that is produced outside of Marvel Studios, just wouldn’t feel complete without a cameo from comic creator Stan Lee. He’s a good luck charm, and his appearance is expected in pretty much every Marvel movie (though he hasn’t actually appeared in all of them). And it turns out, Stan Lee may have recently filmed a cameo for a Marvel Studios project coming much further down the line.
Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan, who plays Gamora’s troublesome sister Nebula, recently posted a picture to Instagram featuring her standing on a studio backlot with none other than Stan Lee. Furthermore, Karen Gillan just so happens to be wearing her Nebula make-up. Since Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting in Atlanta (as well as Edinburgh, Scotland), many have assumed that Stan Lee recently shot his Infinity War cameo, but we’re not so sure that’s the case.

UPDATE: Though Marvel commitments are indeed keeping Jeremy Renner out of Mission: Impossible 6, director Peyton Reed has indicated on Twitter that Ant-Man and The Wasp will not be one of his obligations. Our original story from March 30 follows below.
Even though Mission: Impossible 6 will feature Tom Cruise tackling a stunt that tops anything else he’s done in the franchise before, he’ll have to pull it off without one of this newer teammates helping him out.
Jeremy Renner has co-starred in both Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation as a member of Ethan Hunt’s Impossible Mission Force. However, word on the street is that Jeremy Renner will not return for Mission: Impossible 6 due to his commitments at Marvel Studios, which may include more than just Avengers: Infinity War.

Just when you thought Avengers: Infinity War didn’t have any more room for cool actors, Terry Notary has to come out and say that he has a role in it. You probably don’t know his face, but you’ve seen his work before. As a stunt coordinator, movement coach, and motion capture performer, he has lent his talents to some of the biggest genre movies of the past decade. Now, he’s joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as one of Thanos’ top henchmen.

The appeal of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been, ever since its earliest days, the promise of watching so many seemingly disparate characters fight and co-exist and come together to save the day in a shared world where the events of one adventure can have a profound effect on one another. And then they pulled if off and we got spoiled and the rest of Marvel Studios’ “Phase 3” has to find a way to get us excited all over again. And you know what? This new video, which teases Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War, feels like a healthy injection of fuel into the Marvel hype machine. No one can sell themselves quite like Marvel can.
