Captain America’s Secret Avengers Confirmed for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

There have been a number of fan theories doing the rounds about what will happen in Avengers: Infinity War, but, now one such theory has been confirmed as a “fact” of the movie. We will see the MCU adaptation of the comic books’ “Secret Avengers.”

We have shared the bios of these new Avengers: Infinity War characters which were provided by Toys R Us marketing materials for the soon to be launched Infinity War related merchandise. As seen above, the Captain America bio displays a particular line which fans have figured out.

“…the Super-Soldier has remained under the radar while continuing to do what he believes is right – saving the world one clandestine mission at a time.”

It is difficult to read that description and not think about its connection to the “Secret Avengers” days from the comic books. The description also helps you create some story premises which might be reviewed later, to plug the gaps in what was done by “Secret Avengers” team to protect the world between Civil War and Infinity War days. While the MCU keeps expanding, such a narrative would be vital.

If you are clueless about it. In 2010, Marvel Comics had created the Secret Avengers as a team managed by Steve Rogers, after Norman Osborn’s “Dark Reign” regime had collapsed. Instead of continuing with Osborn’s H.A.M.M.E.R. or to revive S.H.I.E.L.D., Rogers created his team of Avengers as a secret special ops team for the government, to do the kind of things which were beyond the publicly known main Avengers.

A number of fans had already remarked that this adaptation of Secret Avengers is influenced by Captain America’s nomadic days when he had given up his Captain America mantle after he became upset with the fact that the Secret Empire had manipulated the US government. He started fighting the bad guys in a covert way, before Red Skull’s return compelled him to become Captain America once again.

As of now, most of us expect that the Chris Evans’ portrayed Captain America would either die or go into retirement after Infinity War, however, if he doesn’t die then rumors related to the come back of Red Skull in Infinity War might push Marvel Cinematic Universe down the same line as the comic books. Because Steve Rogers would once again need to take on the Red Skull.

Black Panther is running in theaters and Avengers: Infinity War will follow it on April 27th. Other upcoming MCU films are Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6th, Captain Marvel on March 8th, 2019, Avengers 4 on May 3rd, 2019, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 on July 5th, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
