Marvel Studios is doing its best to make sure everyone is invited to the superhero party known as Avengers: Infinity War. Almost every hero in the MCU has been enlisted to join the film, as it will require all hands on deck to stop the Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin). While the Guardians of the Galaxy have been confirmed to appear for quite some time, the news that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel), and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) will join forces with the Avengers was no doubt the source of great excitement.
Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) were also seemingly confirmed recently, but that news left out a usually forgotten team member. Sean Gunn (the brother of director James Gunn) can be seen in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise as the Ravager Kraglin, but he is also the stand-in for Rocket. Now, he too has made his way to Atlanta to begin production, and he even took the time to share the film’s new logo.
Gunn took to Instagram to reveal his involvement in Infinity War and fans should take note of the cool Avengers mug in his hand. But more importantly, though, they should check out his beanie — which sports a new Infinity War logo. This new logo could simply be the production logo used for the shoot itself, but could also serve as the new main logo after incorporating the Avengers “A” into the subtitle.
If this is in fact the new logo for Infinity War, then it follows suit with the recent changes to Black Panther‘s text as well. Marvel has a tendency to change logos periodically throughout the production of its films, so it is no surprise that Infinity War may have gotten an upgrade right as it begins production. It will be interesting to see if this new logo is the one that’s used when the big marketing push for the film begins, or if another change is in the works.
Aside from the logo itself, it is great to see Marvel Studios and directors Joe and Anthony Russo bring Gunn into the fold, most likely to put on the green skin tight suit again and bring Rocket to life on set. Then again, Kraglin may also factor into this story, but that would likely be a mere cameo appearance. Hopefully this means a prominent role for Rocket and the rest of the Guardians in the grand scheme of things, but don’t expect confirmation on that anytime soon.
