This has helped to spawn a popular time travel theory which suggests that Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet fractures the Avengers team, sending them spinning off into different timelines.

That’s because directors Anthony & Joe Russo didn’t give their cast the entire Infinity War script and only provided them with the relevant pages and information they needed to effectively deliver the best performance.

Looks like fans of Carol Danvers will have to wait a few more years before they get to see Brie Larson don the red, blue, and gold suit.
