At a press event for Captain America: Civil War, asked Directors, the Russo Brothers which character they’re particularly looking forward to working on – and neither of them appeared in their latest effort.

“The movies are intended to be a culmination of everything that’s happened before in the MCU so you don’t want to get into spoilers but I’m a big fan of what James Gunn has done,” Anthony Russo told “[Joe Russo and I] are both big fans of what James Gunn has done. Star-Lord is a fantastic character and Chris Pratt is an awesome performer so you’d be very excited,” he said, teasing Pratt and Star-Lord’s presence in Infinity War.

Joe Russo, on the other hand, is excited to bring the Norse God into the mix and, especially because he knows something about Thor: Ragnarok that we don’t.

“I’m excited to work with Thor,” Joe Russo says. “They’re doing some really interesting stuff with Ragnarok and where he’s gonna be at the beginning of Infinity War is gonna be a very interesting place and I think very profound. I think he’s gonna have a real emotional motivation after that.”

In case there was any debate, we now know that Star-Lord and Thor will be making appearances, if not return trips to Earth, for Avengers: Infinity War.

Captain America: Civil War hits theatres May 6, 2016. Avengers: Infinity War Parts I and II are set for release May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019.
