Big Hero 6 director confirms the Avengers wont make cameos

In issue 222 of Total Film magazine (opens in new tab) , Big Hero 6 director Don Hall tells us that even though the film's based on a Marvel comic, we shouldn't expect any of the Avengers to drop by for a cuppa.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £2.99 on your iPad (opens in new tab) - Hall reveals that Big Hero 6 won't be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"Very early on, when we were collaborating with Marvel, the decision was made to intentionally not connect it to the Marvel universe," he explains of the CGI superhero flick.

"Everybody felt like it would be great for us to take this idea of theirs and make our own universe with it. Marvel really encouraged us to do that. So there'll be no Iron Man or Captain America, and no Avengers in this world.

"Our Avengers are the Big Hero 6."
