Directors Joe and Anthony Russo announced that the "Community" Human Beings will keep up their cameos among the superhumans in "Avengers: Infinity War." Before taking on Marvel movies, the Russos were executive producers and directors on the television show "Community." As a nod to that show, they've included cameos from "Community" cast members in their two Marvel movies, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Captain America: Civil War." They recently announced that they'll include more in the "Avengers" films to come.
In an interview with CinemaBlend, Joe Russo said that fans can "absolutely" expect to another "Community" cameo in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War." "We've got to keep the streak going," he said. The Russos will direct both "Infinity War" and its as-yet-untitled sequel.
The duo hasn't decided which "Community" actor will appear, however. "We're literally in that phase of the pre-production where we start thinking about those kinds of things," said Joe Russo, "and right now we're looking for the right part to see who's a match for the next cameo."
The Russos' previous Marvel films have featured other members of the "Community" cast. Danny Pudi, who played Abed Nadir on "Community," appeared in "The Winter Soldier" as a S.H.I.E.L.D employee. Jim Rash, who played Dean Pelton on "Community," had a role as a liaison with MIT in "Captain America: Civil War."
Most of the "Community" central cast hasn't appeared in a Marvel movie yet, so the Russos have plenty of options for the "Infinity War" cameo. Donald Glover, who played Troy in "Community," has reportedly been cast in an undisclosed role in "Spider-Man: Homecoming." This could make him an obvious choice for the "Infinity War" cameo, but the Russos might have something else up their sleeves. Other members of the main "Community" cast who haven't appeared in a Marvel movie yet include Joel McHale, Allison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Chevy Chase, and Gillian Jacobs.
"The Avengers: Infinity War" will begin filming in November. It opens in theaters on May 2018, with the untitled sequel scheduled for May 2019.
