Avengers: Infinity War - The Collector Possibly Confirmed

Marvel Studios is looking for Avengers: Infinity War and the subsequent followup Untitled Avengers to work as a closing for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With 18 films due to be out by the time Infinity War rolls around, there is no shortage of characters at the disposal of directors Joe and Anthony Russo. They've already showed an ability to manage a large number of characters in Captain America: Civil War, but Infinity War will be a test on an entirely different level.

Not only will the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and other solo heroes be involved in the fight against Thanos, but secondary MCU characters from movies past have also been linked to Infinity War. While many may still be waiting for TV characters to crossover as well, one more cosmic entity may have just been confirmed to appear.

MCU Exchange is reporting that Josh Brolin posted (and has since deleted) an Instagram video discussing what scenes he will be shooting next for Infinity War and among the cast members he listed to be working with was Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), and the surprising reveal of Benicio Del Toro, who plays Taneleer Tivan aka The Collector. Del Toro made is debut as the character in the post-credit scene of Thor: The Dark World and later appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy, but no further appearances had been confirmed until now. To make this report even more believable, Del Toro was recently spotted in Atlanta - where Marvel is currently filming Infinity War.

When in the #ATL do as #beniciodeltoro does and go hang out at a #recordstore. Actually, do that when you're in any city. #belikebenicio #criminalrecordsatl

The Collector could also play a larger role depending on what other secrets he has stashed away in his massive collection. Even with one of his bases now destroyed, he does potentially have Adam Warlock's cocoon in his grasp. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is laying the foundation for Warlock to appear; and if Peter Dinklage is playing his sidekick Pip the Troll (as his hair may have revealed), then having The Collector release Warlock later on in the movie could further make his appearance that much more important.
