‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Throwing It Back With 1960s Casting Call

Avengers Infinity War EnsembleThanks to Central Casting Georgia, there’s a little more insight into Mary Lou — the working title for Avengers: Infinity War — and the scope of the already cosmic-based film. A recent casting call for actresses to play secretaries and engineers from the 1960s leaves room for plenty of speculation, despite it being for “very small” scenes.

You can read the casting call below:

Secretaries: Looking for women who appear to be Caucasian, 20s-50s, to portray 1960s secretaries/clerks. Hair must be period-appropriate: no longer than shoulder length, no dye, no modern colors or cuts. Must be dress size 0-8.”

“Female Engineers: Looking for women who appear to be Caucasian, 20s-50s, to portray 1960s engineers in this VERY small scene. Hair must be period-appropriate: short hair, no longer than shoulder length, no dye, no modern colors or cuts. Must be dress size 0-8.”

While no further details about these scenes have come to light, the idea of going back to that era could mean a number of things. Obviously the Marvel Cinematic Universe is only becoming more fond of flashbacks. From Ant-Man to Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, the MCU has been toying with the de-aging of actors. Even having Captain America’s big screen debut into this universe being a throwback shows the willingness to bounce around to other eras.

Could this mean some sort of Captain Marvel connection? Peggy Carter could also be coming back into the picture here. The latter seeming very likely.

Regardless, the casting call is certainly interesting and fans will be running wild with speculation as to what it means. So what do you think? What’s the most logical reasoning for the MCU’s biggest film ever to turn back the clock like this? Sound off in the comments below!

Avengers: Infinity War will be released on May 4, 2018, and has a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Chris Evans as Steve Rogers (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner (Hulk), Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton (Hawkeye), Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany as the Vision, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautisa as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Stephen Strange, Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier), Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa (Black Panther), Paul Rudd as Scott Lang (Ant-Man/Giant Man), Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Benedict Wong as Wong, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Tom Hiddleston as Loki Laufeyson, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Benicio Del Toro as Taneleer Tivan (Collector), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor as Ebony Maw, and Josh Brolin as Thanos. Hiroyuki Sanada has been cast in an unnamed role.

5 Thor Stories That Should Be Used For Future Marvel Movies

Chris Hemsworth Thor MarvelAfter those amazing Thor: Ragnarok trailers, everyone’s talking about Odinson. This looks like a fun movie, and it makes me excited for where they might take Thor in the future. After Avengers: Infinity War, Thor is fair game for Marvel Studios (and hopefully Taika Waititi again) to do whatever they want with him.

There are some amazing Thor stories in the Marvel catalog for them to take inspiration from. I think that’s pretty key at this point, for them to just take inspiration from these stories and not follow the plot 100 percent. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is just too different compared to the Marvel Comics line, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some amazing stories the movies could emulate.

So here are five Thor stories that should be used for future movies. Hit Next to find out more!
