With the Avengers: Infinity War trailer in hand, there is one more good news for the Marvel Cinematic Universe fans. The Black Widow aka Scarlett Johansson has confirmed that we'll soon see Brie Larson's Captain Marvel in Avengers 4. In a recent interview to Vanity Fair, Scarlett said that Brie is getting her “feet wet for real" while shooting the Infinity War sequel before her stand-alone Captain Marvel movie goes on the floor.

“We have Brie Larson on this film,” Scarlett said, “she’s here before shooting the stand-alone Captain Marvel movie so we get to watch her get her feet wet for real. She’s so great, but a really cute thing happened the other day where Hulk is standing next to her and [Avengers 4 co-director] Joe Russo told her to put her hand in front of Mark [Ruffalo]’s face to stop him, and she’s like, ‘In front of his face?’ And they explained, ‘that’s where his chest is,’ and she looks up and yells, ‘I’m new! I’m new!’”
Johansson further added that it’s bittersweet to imagine not having these films to come back to. "I’m like, ‘damn, girl,’” she continued. “It’s very surreal for me to watch these new cast members come in and get their feet wet and breathe new life into these characters who are so iconic. I feel a lot of joy for the next generation. It’s a bittersweet feeling but overall it’s a positive one. I feel good about the work we’ve done and the work I’ve done."
Disney CEO Bob Iger and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently announced that the MCU will head into new territory after Avengers 4, and will explore new places and times. “Twenty-two movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before — intentionally,” Feige said. The 22nd film, Avengers 4 (which does not have an official title yet), is set to release in 2019 and will bring to an end not just Phase 3 but will also pave way for new generation of superheroes. The MCU films will then be divided into "two distinct" periods: pre-Avengers 4 and post-Avengers 4.
