The Russo Brothers, however, have said the original Avenger will be making an appearance in their new film.

“We keep saying, ‘Patience is a virtue’,” Joe Russo told JOE.ie. “We did not forget the twice-nominated Jeremy Renner. We cooked up a story for him that is a little bit of a long play. Not a short play.”

Yahoo Movies spoke to the directors ahead of the film’s release and they responded to the rumours that Silver Surfer would be making an appearance as well as what to expect from Phase 4 of the MCU.

Avengers: Infinity War will have the longest run-time of any Marvel Cinematic Universe movie

The Russos also discussed when the Avengers 4 title would be revealed while Elizabeth Olsen explained why she was more comfortable shooting Infinity War than Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Her co-star Paul Bettany, who plays Vision, also discussed his character’s fashion sense as well as the anatomical situation of his manhood in an interview with Yahoo Movies.

Here’s the official synopsis for the new movie:

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.

Avengers: Infinity War is in cinemas from April 26
