New 'Avengers 4' Character Hinted at by Jim Starlin


Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War already featured several Marvel Comics characters co-created by Jim Starlin, including Thanos, Drax, and Gamora. Now the creator seems to be hinting that another of his characters could debut in Avengers 4.

Starlin was a guest at Puerto Rico Comic Con. During a question and answer session, a fan asked Starlin about Avengers 4. Starlin said that knew quite a bit about the film and had visited the set, but would only reveal that he will have more credits for Avengers 4 than he did for Avengers: Infinity War, which suggests another of his characters will appear in the next Avengers movie. (via SuperBroMovies).

There are several Starlin characters that could appear in Avengers 4. One is Mistress Death, whom many fans expected to see in Avengers: Infinity War. Others include members of Thanos’ family, such as his father Mentor, his mother Sui-San, his brother Starfox, or his grandfather Kronos.

Starlin's event series The Infinity Gauntlet and his long history of writing Thanos should make it no surprise that his influence on the current Marvel Cinematic Universe story may continue to grow. It is unfortunate, however, that Starlin has recently cut ties with Marvel Comics.
Which Starlin character do you want to see in Avengers 4? Let us know in the comments!

Avengers: Infinity War is currently dominating the box office, taking in $1.7 billion worldwide. It is the fourth-highest grossing movie of all time, having past Jurassic World at the worldwide box office.

Avengers: Infinity War had the highest-grossing opening weekend of all time at the domestic box office, earning $257.6 million. The film earned $112.5 million in its second weekend at the domestic box office, which is the second-highest second weekend of all time.

Avengers: Infinity War ranked highly in ComicBook.com's definitive ranking of all 19 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, which can see here. As for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, here are some of the movies that Avengers 4 is likely to set up.

'Avengers 4' Synopsis May Drop A Subtle Time-Travel Teaser







Are you still recovering from the blowback of the latest Marvel movie? Earlier this year, Avengers: Infinity War cruised into theaters with a heartbreaking story, leaving fans to speculating wildly over how Avenger 4will fare. Now, the latter movie’s first synopsis has gone live, and it may hint at one popular fan-theory.
So, to be safe, possible spoilers for Avengers 4 may lie below! You have been duly informed!


Today, the first description of Avengers 4 was spotted in the latest issue of License Global. The magazine’s May issue included a vague synopsis for the film that teases its epic stakes, and you can read it below:
“A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”

Naturally, the Internet has been fast to pick apart the synopsis for what it is. So far, everything from the Illuminati to Marvel’s Secret Wars has been inferred from the blurb, but they aren’t the craziest things to come from it. After all, its bit about reality has got fans theorizing about the real possibility of time travel in Avengers 4.
As you can see, the blurb stresses a “turning point” for Avengers 4 as its heroes learn how “fragile this reality” has become. Of course, Thanos had a big hand in messing up reality with his fully powered Infinity Gauntlet. His Reality Stone did a number on guys like Star-Lord, but there is nothing in this synopsis that screams time travel. That is, until you look back to set photos taken from Avengers 4.


Earlier this month, fans finally noticed a big detail from a leaked set of Avengers 4 set photos. The images, which can be seen here, shows Tony Stark in a full SHIELD agent uniform while Loki is shown in his Avengers era costume. One fan noticed a discrepancy in the photos concerning Tony, and it made fans double-down on a time travel idea.
"I’M LATE BUT I just realised that this has to be time travel and not a flashback because there are two Tonys in the same place?? (see the door behind loki and tony) ALSO someone removes the muffle and the shackles from loki’s wrists,” the fan wrote.
Not only do these photos show Stark in a SHIELD uniform, but other set sneak-peeks have shown everyone from Captain America to the Hulk in their Avengers era gear. The guys were all sporting devices on their hands which many have assumed might be some sort of time machine. So, if Avengers 4 wanted to show its heroes how fragile their reality is, it could always fling Earth’s mightiest heroes back to when they first assembled.

Do you think Avengers 4 is about to introduce a time-traveling adventure? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics, k-pop, and anime!

Avengers 4 Will Expand Captain America & Black Widow’s Roles



For those worried that Black Widow and Captain America didn’t have enough to do in Avengers: Infinity War, you’re in for a treat with Avengers 4.

In an interview with The New York Times, Infinity War and Avengers 4 screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely said the two heroes will be much bigger players come next year’s event film.

Black Widow and Captain America spent much of Infinity War guarding Vision and his Mind Stone from the hands of the Black Order, eventually leading to a final showdown with Thanos in Wakanda. Captain America had a few lines about not “trading lives” and Black Widow had some major action scenes, but as far as the major plot went, the two weren’t a huge part of it.

Markus said they “have a much bigger role to play in that second film.”

And while Marvel Studios itself has backed away from the “Part One” and “Part Two” nature of the films’ titles, Markus said Infinity War was still planned with its follow-up in mind.

“We gave ourselves license to pay off later,” he said.
With the original, core Avengers team still intact going into Avengers 4, and the debut of heroes like Captain Marvel on the horizon, there’s no doubt the film will try to make good on these promises. With what looks like a smaller cast, expect less one-liners and more getting stuff done.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston, and Josh Brolin. The film is out in theaters now.

AVENGERS 4 Was Reportedly Titled AVENGERS: INFINITY GAUNTLET Before That Leaked Online




According to a new report, Marvel Studios planned to title the Infinity War sequel Infinity Gauntlet but that changed when Zoe Saldana let it slip during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press tour...


One of the biggest questions pretty much everyone has right now is this: what will Avengers 4 be titled? Chances are we'll get an answer to that before the year is over but when and where Marvel Studios will reveal this key piece of intel remains to be seen. There are a lot of theories out there and if a new report is to be believed, it appears we may have heard the sequel's original title last May!

As you'll no doubt recall, Zoe Saldana referred to the movie as Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press tour and while those involved with the movie have denied it was ever going to be called that, MCU Cosmic claims that was indeed what the epic ensemble was being referred to during production. When you think about it, it's a title which makes a lot of sense too.

After all, while the Infinity Gauntlet may have been destroyed at the end of Infinity War, it's bound to factor heavily into the sequel and "Gauntlet" could also refer to what Earth's Mightiest Heroes will have to go through in order to put an end to the Mad Titan. Regardless, Marvel Studios may have initially called Avengers 4 Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet but that's no longer the case so time will tell now!

New (& Old) Marvel Villains That Could Be Introduced In Avengers 4





With Avengers 4 both wrapping up Phase 3 of the MCU and kickstarting the next era of Marvel movies, the film is the perfect time to introduce new villains from the comics while bringing back some familiar faces. Avengers: Infinity War continues to break box office records left and right as it careens towards one of the highest hauls of all time. The movie has also been praised by critics and audiences, setting the bar rather high for next year's follow-up.

We've heard Avengers 4 is bigger than its predecessor, and the dramatic conclusion of Avengers 3 makes that claim seem well-founded. This summer's movie ended with the villain triumphant and half the universe wiped out. With many of those destroyed the very heroes protecting Earth and the rest of the galaxy, that vacuum of power could be an interesting avenue to explore. Thanos is still the kye threat, of course, but that may not be all. Many have assumed a time jump will occur between the two movies, so we could drop into a world where supervillains have run amok. Not only will that allow for new characters to appear, but we could see twists on some existing rogues that bring them closer to their comic book counterparts.

Despite how much of Marvel Studios' future rests on what goes down in Avengers 4, we know surprisingly little about the blockbuster. It's only a matter of time before marketing for the film kicks in, but until then there's a lot of room for speculation. With that in mind, here are some of the new and returning villains we think could show up in Avengers 4 next year.

THE AVENGERS 4 VILLAIN FANS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR


Ever since Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely joined the MCU with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they've been teasing the arrival of a classic villain for the star-spangled hero: M.O.D.O.K. A super-intelligent being created by the science-terrorist group A.I.M., the Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing (it's changed over the years) has been plaguing Cap and the Avengers since his debut in 1967's Tales of Suspense #93.

Along with its gifted mind, MODOK possesses a range of psychic abilities and often controls large swathes of A.I.M.'s minions and resources. Though the character is rather outlandish looking, Markus and McFeely want MODOK in the MCU. There's no telling how close the villain would hew to the comics, but MODOK one of Marvel's biggest villains that's yet to appear on the big screen. Add in his ties to Captain America, and it does seem like the villain is a shoo-in for a future film.

At one point, it was even believed Peter Dinklage was playing MODOK in Avengers 3, but we now know he was cast as Eitri instead. Still, the writers of Avengers 4 have their sights set on the antagonist and his decades of comic book history means he can't avoid the MCU for long. With the world turned upside-down in Avengers 4, it's conceivable we could see A.I.M. revived after their appearance in Iron Man 3 when their boldest experiment to date gives them a new leader and the Avengers a deadly foe.

NEW STREET-LEVEL AND COSMIC VILLAINS



Rumors have swirled that the Skrulls will be in Avengers 4. It makes a certain amount of sense, as the villains will play a big role in Captain Marvel just a few months earlier. This could be the reason Nick Fury signals Carol Danvers at the end of Avengers: Infinity War and could segue into the more cosmic stories that are said to populate Phase 4 of the MCU. In the wake of Thanos wiping out many of Earth's heroes, the Skrulls might finally enact their invasion plot, swapping out people on the planet with shapeshifting aliens. That would then add elements of espionage to Avengers 4, tying the film back to the previous movies the Russo Brothers have done with Captain America.

Another cosmic possibility is the Beyonders. Though they first appeared in 1980, it was during the "Time Runs Out" build-up to Secret Wars (2015) that they came more into focus. With connections to the Living Tribunal and the Cosmic Cubes, the Beyonders could play a big role in the space-based adventures to come. They're also tied into Jonathan Hickman's work with Marvel, much of which inspired Avengers: Infinity War. Whether they seek to stop another Thanos-level event from occurring or if we learn the Mad Titan was trying to cull the universal population to hold them off, their mission to wipe out reality could be just the massive event to end Phase 3 and perhaps even reset some things for the next round of movies.

Aside from an increase in cosmic characters and plots, we know Phase 4 of the MCU is also supposed to focus on more grounded stories. The Black Widow film will naturally be a part of that, but Avengers 4 could easily feature some lead-ins. We know Hawkeye has been off on his own and Black Widow will be in Japan fighting the Yakuza. In fact, those tidbits are some of the only things we know about next year's Avengers film. With that in mind, it would make sense for Widow, Hawkeye, and others to face a new street-level threat.

Taskmaster is another character like MODOK that fans have been waiting years to see, and Avengers 4 could be the perfect place to introduce him. Though his costume would need to be toned down some, the mercenary capable of copying any movement he sees would be a gift to the fight choreographers of the film. Rumors of the character showing up in film or TV have abounded, but Taskmaster could be just the foe to give Hawkeye a meaty story after his absence in Avengers: Infinity War. And given his anti-hero nature, the movie would serve as a great jumping off point for a the MCU's first R-Rated film.



NEW TAKES ON OLD VILLAINS IN AVENGERS 4

Guardians of the Galaxy introduced a somewhat new version of Ronan the Accuser, and while the changes still kept a lot of the core elements of the character intact, fans weren't pleased with how little development the on-again, off-again villain from the comics received. Even worse, but he was killed off before he had a chance to be fully explored in the MCU. Luckily, Marvel Studios looks like they're going to rectify that somewhat.

Captain Marvel will not only bring Coulson back to the big screen, but it will feature Ronan and Korath. With the film set in the '90s and exploring the Kree-Skrull War, Marvel wisely decided to bring back one of the most popular Kree from the comics and his lieutenant. With any luck, they won't be killed off again and could instead appear in future films set around the same time period. Of course, it could be that Thanos broke time when he snapped his fingers in Avengers: Infinity War, meaning the fate of Ronan and others could be up in the air.

We've heard rumors for a long time now that Avengers 4 will involve time travel. Set photos have lent credence to this idea, though there's still plenty of options for other things that could be taking place. Regardless, it's clear that some alteration to time, space, and reality will take place in the new film - after all, characters like Spider-Man must return ahead of their future films. That means certain aspects of the MCU could be retconned. Ronan, for instance, may avoid his death and slowly shift more towards his comic book counterpart. The same could occur for other prominent villains as well.

Avengers: Infinity War's Red Skull revival after so many years proved the minds behind the MCU weren't afraid to play with their own reality. With that option on the table, there's no telling what absent villains could return. Yellowjacket could easily have a similar return given Ant-Man & the Wasp will see the team head to the Quantum Realm that he was sucked into. Thanos' attack could let Abomination out of his cage. And with the chance of MODOK appearing, AIM could finally resemble a version of the mad scientist team they are on the page.

AVENGERS 4 COULD ESTABLISH THE THUNDERBOLTS



Helmut Zemo is still very much alive and may use the new chaos to assume a more supervillain-y identity as Baron Zemo. In the comics, he and his father have spent decades battling Captain America. The version of Zemo we met in Captain America: Civil War was a far-cry from the bombastic villain, of course, but he was used to great effect. But with the universe in shambles, Zemo could finally snap and become more dastardly and colorful. We could then see him form the Masters of Evil, or better yet, initiate the Thunderbolts.

If Marvel truly wants to explore more mature material, then their take on the Suicide Squad could make for a great film series. The Thunderbolts began as a plot by Zemo to take the place of Earth's fallen heroes after a calamitous event, only to be revealed as villains in disguise. That plot seems tailor-made for Avengers 4, which would allow an eventual Thunderbolts movie to then focus on the team as a mixture of reformed villains and criminals looking to reduce their sentences. What's more, Hawkeye long served as the mentor of the Thunderbolts, so his solo mission in Avengers 4 would offer an effortless way to connect to the group.

In the end, the plot and characters of Avengers 4 is up in the air. But Thanos' victory and the end of Phase 3 leave a number of doors open for the introduction of new villains. And with time and reality altered, who knows which rogues could crawl out of the woodwork with new costumes and missions. Whether next year's film focuses on a few key threats alongside the Mad Titan or teases out a slew of threads for future films, it's safe to assume comic fans will get to see some nefarious faces jump from the page to the screen in Avengers 4.

Jeff Goldblum On If He Will Be In 'Avengers 4', Teases Team-up With Collector

Jeff Goldblum and his Marvel Cinematic Universe counterpart of the Grandmaster might just appear in Avengers 4.


While promoting his upcoming appearance in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Goldblum was asked if his Grandmaster character who debuted in Thor: Ragnarok could appear in Avengers 4. The actor didn't give any sort of real indication that he might be there but he has an interesting idea for how it could come to be, as seen in the video above from MTV.


"I don't know. Who knows," Goldblum started. "They've got a good imagination. Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, and Victora Alonso over there, they know what they're doing. They make good movies. Well, see if I could contribute anything to what they were doing. I imagine this, that my brother, the Collector played by Benicio del Toro, maybe they see us together. I don't know. Who knows but my character can do anything. I've got my super powers than all of them put together."
Of course, those who saw Avengers: Infinity War might have a little bit of trouble imagining the Grandmaster reuniting with the Collector after what happened on Knowhere. Goldblum, however, insists that his character is more powerful than any other seen on screen so far.
"I'm the Grandmaster! You can't kill me," Goldblum said. "I can do everything. I can fly. I can do all sort of thing, really. So all I want to do is play games but I could do anything." Thanos had best watch out but, at the same time, it sounds like Goldblum might not have watched Avengers: Infinity War yet.


As for Star-Lord actor Chris Pratt, he can't say too much about the future of the Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy movies, either. "In the break between Infinity War part one and part two, what's Star-Lord up to?" Pratt started. "You'll know once you see part two. I'm slated to film in January so we don't know yet timewise where that lines up. I'm hoping it's not the last you see me but you can't be certain."

First AVENGERS 4 Promo Art LEAKS Online And It Features A New Team, New Costumes, And Captain Marvel







The first promo art for Avengers 4 has seemingly leaked online today and as well as featuring brand new looks for a number of heroes, we finally get to see Captain Marvel assemble alongside the team...

Avengers Assemble! The first promo art for Avengers 4 is here and, well, it leaves us with plenty to talk about. Before we go any further, it is, of course, important to point out that this could be fan-made. However, looking at the composition of the picture, the fact the art style matches what we've come to expect from the studio, and other small details, I'm inclined to believe this actually is 100% legitimate.

As you can see, almost all the surviving heroes have new costumes and Brie Larson's Captain Marvel is also getting in on the action, something we've known would be the case for quite some time now.

This is just a generic piece of artwork for promotional purposes so it doesn't necessarily reveal too much in the way of plot details but that new shot of Thanos might. As you can see, he's wearing a new suit of armour and wielding a sword that was spotted in a number of toys earlier this year. Who knows if that's connected to those or if it is indeed how the Mad Titan will end up looking in Avengers 4.

Either way, be sure to let us know your thoughts on this promo art in the comments section below.

'Avengers 4' Begins Reshoots This Summer

Marvel Studios and directors Joe and Anthony Russo tackled the massive undertaking of filming Avengers: Infinity War and it's untitled sequel back to back. And while principal photography on Avengers 4 is done, there's still a lot more work to be done…

A new tip from Omega Underground's Christopher Marc reveals reshoots for Avengers 4 will take place this summer, wrapping up in early September and giving the filmmakers half a year to finish the film before it hits theaters.

The reshoots are expected to take place both in Atlanta and New York City, two regular locations for Marvel Studios productions.


A big chunk of the first act of Avengers: Infinity War was shot in New York City, and we've already seen set photos of other scenes in the Big Apple.

Fans have speculated about the plot of Avengers 4 based on those set photos, which feature MCU stalwarts Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth in costume as Captain America and Thor respectively. The interesting part about that is they appear to be wearing the same costumes and have the same hairstyles as they did for the first Avengers movie.
And before you start thinking that they're getting into flashback territory, the set photos also showed an older-looking Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, as well as Paul Rudd as Ant-Man — who was obviously not present during the battle against Loki and the Chitauri.

Fans have speculated this could either be time-travel shenanigans or something to do with the BARF technology Stark developed in Captain America: Civil War, but at this point we are just as curious as you are. Although, recent comments from Gwyneth Paltrow could have revealed a major spoiler for the movie…

Perhaps we'll learn more about the plot of Avengers 4 as reshoots start to pick back up, but given the secretive nature of Marvel Studios we probably shouldn't hold our breath. They still haven't even released the title of the new Avengers movie, letting rumors and speculation run rampant in the weeks since Infinity War left audiences scarred.

The only thing we have to go on is the recently released synopsis, which doesn't really say much:

A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.

The Biggest Reveals From Avengers 4's Leaked Art


Artwork possibly associated with next year's Avengers 4 has leaked online, offering what may be our first glimpse of the big sequel. Marvel Studios is currently keeping every detail about Avengers 4 under wraps, refusing to even announce the film's title. That high degree of secrecy makes the image particularly exciting.
It's not possible to say for certain that this artwork is official. The website that originally published it didn't give away its sources, so it should be taken with a pinch of salt. What's more, an accompanying image actually seemed more likely to be concept art for Avengers: Infinity War, suggesting there may be a degree of confusion here.
At the same time, though, this image is unlike anything we've seen before. It definitely shows all the heroes who survived the "snap," with some Avengers donning distinctive new costumes. That would make sense, as modern superhero blockbusters really make their money off merchandising, and new costumes mean more action figure sales. So, this does actually feel like it could be a real leak. Assuming it is, let's explore what this image reveals.
THE CIVIL WAR IS OVER
Captain America: Civil War left the Avengers divided, and Infinity War made it clear that there's still bad blood between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. Even when told of Thanos's impending attack, Iron Man was reluctant to give Rogers a call. No doubt the sheer scale of Thanos' atrocity has led the Avengers to put their differences behind them. Here they stand, assembled together for what may be the last time - and with some exciting new recruits.

The Russo brothers are determined to ensure there are consequences to Civil War. Earlier drafts saw Steve Rogers and Tony Stark meet in Infinity War, but that encounter was ultimately cut from the script. It was presumably moved to the sequel; given the magnitude of the schism between the two Avengers, we really need to see the reunion.


CAPTAIN MARVEL AS A KEY AVENGER


Avengers: Infinity War's post-credits scene showed Nick Fury send out a galactic Mayday to Captain Marvel. This art shows Captain Marvel - in her traditional colors, not green-and-gray! - as a key member of the Avengers. Carol Danvers could prove an essential ally in the battle against Thanos; as far back as 2016, Marvel Studios visionary Kevin Feige had insisted she was among Marvel's most powerful heroes. "Her powers are off the charts," he noted, "and when she's introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we've ever had." It's unclear quite where Carol Danvers has been between her '90s-set solo movie and the events of Infinity War; no doubt we'll get answers next year.
THERE'S NO SIGN OF WASP


Perhaps the most surprising omission from the image is Evangeline Lilly's Wasp. Although this year's Ant-Man & the Wasp is technically set before the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel chose not to use her in that film, reserving her debut for her own movie. Wasp is confirmed to appear in Avengers 4 - but, crucially, she's not expected to play a major role. According to Lilly, Wasp "will appear in Avengers 4 [but] not very much."

Wasp's absence in this image suggests that she may actually be a victim of the "snap," killed at the cliffhanger ending of Infinity War. If that is the case, Wasp's small role in Avengers 4 must presumably be after the Avengers have either undone or averted Thanos' atrocity.

WAR MACHINE GETS AN UPGRADE

Although he's never been the focus of a Marvel movie, James Rhodes has been one of Marvel's most important heroes; he played a crucial role during the Battle of Sokovia, and was one of the key players during the Battle of Wakanda in Avengers: Infinity War. There, the firepower of the War Machine armor cut a swathe through Thanos' Outriders.
Note that the artwork shows War Machine in a subtly different suit - one that's a little bulkier than usual, and with a shoulder-weapon more sizeable than anything he's used before. Infinity War closed with Rhodey in Wakanda, and if Shuri survived the "snap," it's entirely possible the young Wakandan genius will have given War Machine some Wakandan tech.
One exciting possibility is that the War Machine armor now contains nanotech. Tony Stark was able to use nanotech armor to actually make Thanos bleed while battling the Mad Titan on his homeworld, but Rhodey is a military man; he'd be able to find far more creative ways to use a nanotech armor, and to lethal effect.
THE HULK HAS A COSTUME
Avengers 4 is confirmed to be the end of a three-part arc for the Hulk - one that's brought the Hulk and Bruce Banner personas into head-on collision. In the comics, the two personalities ultimately merged into a single identity, which comic book readers jokingly refer to as "Professor Hulk." Notice that, in this art, the Hulk's face bears an unusually pronounced similarity to Ruffalo's, and he's stood in a pose that certainly isn't your typical Hulk.
Of course, the most surprising detail in the image is the fact that the Hulk is wearing a costume at all. One of the reasons the Hulk rarely wears a costume is because he typically transitions between the forms of Bruce Banner and the Hulk; clothes that fit one form do not fit the other. So the fact the Hulk is wearing a suit in this image is actually quite interesting, and perhaps hints that the two personas will accept a status quo in which Banner adopts the Hulk form for good. Again, that's a development that's tied to the "Professor Hulk" era, one of the few times the Jade Giant did adopt a costume in the comics. On the other hand, maybe he's just wearing a very stretchy outfit.
STEVE ROGERS IS CAPTAIN AMERICA, & BLACK WIDOW IS A REDHEAD
Avengers: Infinity War opened with Steve Rogers and Black Widow as fugitives, on the run for the last two years. Rogers had abandoned his Captain America identity and grown a beard, while Widow had dyed her hair blond. Both were presumably ways of changing their famous appearances, so as not to be identified. If this artwork is accurate, those changes will only last for the one film. Presumably the world has a lot more to worry about than a few unlicensed vigilantes after Thanos' "snap."

Note that Rogers's costume includes the star on his chest once again. It makes sense for Rogers to reclaim the identity of Captain America, choosing once again to become a symbol of hope in a dark time. Remember that the entire world will have been shaken by Thanos's act, and a symbol like Captain America would give humanity a hero to rally around. One of the strangest details in the image is the fact he still isn't carrying the shield, though.
HAWKEYE'S COSTUME LOOKS PRETTY DARK
Set photos have teased that Hawkeye will adopt a new, darker costume - and that's typically associated with his "Ronin" identity. In the Ultimate Comics, Clint Barton became the masked vigilante Ronin after the tragic deaths of his family. Most fans assume that, in the MCU, Thanos's "snap" killed the Barton household. If this theory is correct, then Avengers 4 will see a very different version of Hawkeye, a darker one than ever before. It's possible it will fall to Black Widow to keep Hawkeye from falling into grief and rage.

It's by no means certain that this image is an actual leak. And yet, the fact that a single image carries so many implications is itself telling; there are hints at major character arcs, featuring heroes like Hawkeye, the Hulk, and Captain America. Few fan-artists would create an image that carried quite so much potential.

More Leaked Avengers 4 Concept Art Reveals New Look For Vision


Following yesterday’s leak of two intriguing pieces of concept art for Avengers 4, another duo of similar images have hit the web which reveal that one of the characters who perished at the end of Infinity War will return in its upcoming sequel – and they just might get a new look, too.
Specifically, we’re talking about Vision, who was killed when Thanos tore the Mind Stone out of his head. In these concept art images, though, the android’s back and he’s swapped his purple and green color scheme for an all over bleached look.
As with the previous leaks, we can’t confirm yet that these are genuine, but they’re certainly intriguing. Some folks have pointed out that one of them appears to reuse artwork from Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is suspicious, but it’s also worth mentioning that these were first shared on Reddit and deleted very shortly afterwards, suggesting that they weren’t meant to be seen yet.
In any case, check out Vision’s new design in the gallery below:
[FONT=inherit] More Leaked Avengers 4 Concept Art Reveals New Look For Vision








Fans familiar with the comic books will know that Vision’s ghostly appearance here is lifted from the pages of the West Coast Avengers run in which he was re-assembled after being dismantled. It helped give the character an otherworldly look that reminded us that he’d effectively been resurrected from the dead. If this is what Vision’ll be like in the next film, it’ll have a very similar purpose.

But how could the character return in Avengers 4? Well, he’d actually be one of the easiest heroes to revive as he wasn’t reduced to dust by Thanos. Shuri was working on a way to save Vision’s brain without the Mind Stone, so it’s possible this could prove to be the key to bringing him back. Paul Bettany’s robot was mostly out of action for Infinity War but if he returned, with his various powers working, then he’d certainly be a very handy ally to have when going up against Thanos again.

Will There Be A Formal Team Roster at the End of Avengers 4?




When the dust settles from next year's Avengers 4, will there actually be a formal team roster at all? For all Infinity War may carry the "Avengers" brand, the reality is the Avengers haven't existed as a team since 2016. Captain America: Civil War saw the team break apart into two factions. Steve Rogers, Falcon, and Black Widow wound up on the run, remaining active as unlicensed vigilantes. Tony Stark, for his part, initially attempted to reform the Avengers; but he gave up after Spider-Man turned him down, and in the face of Vision's apparent disinterest. The official Avengers: Infinity War Prelude comic ended with Stark alone, convinced the world was still in danger, but giving up on the idea of the Avengers once and for all.


There's a sense in which the Avengers have become far too controversial. The team was involved in a number of high-profile incidents, and the public began to fear they were out of control. Superheroes were no longer admired; now, they were feared, largely because superhero battles tend to cause a great deal of property damage - and mistakes lead to significant loss of life.

But will Avengers 4 change that? Will the film see the Avengers reassemble, and end with a new team, with a brand new roster? Obviously we're a year out from the movie, so it's hard to say for sure. Still, here are our thoughts.

AVENGERS 4 IS A LAST HURRAH



It's no coincidence all the original Avengers survived the cliffhanger ending of Avengers: Infinity War. Next year's Avengers 4 is being positioned as a thrilling "Last Hurrah" for the heroes who first assembled in 2012's The Avengers. The stakes have been raised higher than ever before, the "snap" has been used to cut down the mammoth cast of the MCU to a more manageable level, and it's time for the first Avengers team to save the entire universe.


There's a sense in which Phase 3's arc has imitated Joss Whedon's original Avengers movie. The Avengers divide, bickering, and even coming to blows; they scatter to the winds, failing to prevent the threat manifesting itself; but they finally assemble, taking the fight to the enemy, swearing if they can't the Earth - they'll avenge it. The structure of the overall narrative is exactly the same. And that's a smart move on Marvel's part, given Avengers 4 will bring an end to a decade's worth of storytelling. It's entirely appropriate that Marvel carefully structure their plot in honor to present a homage to what has gone before.

A number of key contracts are set to expire after Avengers 4, meaning this will be the last time the original Avengers stand side-by-side. Infinity War may have been teased as "the end," but in truth Avengers 4 is the film that's really the end of the Avengers.

THE LOGISTICAL PROBLEMS OF AVENGERS MOVIES



Meanwhile, it's important to understand the Avengers movies are becoming a logistical nightmare for Marvel. The Avengers films aren't simply "team movies." Rather, they're a celebration of everything Marvel has done to date. So The Avengers tied up plot threads from the first four years of the MCU; Avengers: Age of Ultron drew the heroes together once again, and set up Phase 3 with the battle of Sokovia; and Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 resolve an arc that's been running for the last decade. They also feature every single character Marvel's created on the big screen over the last decade.

The problem is these films are becoming unwieldy. They demand a cast that's staggering in size, with some major star power - from Robert Downey Jr. to Chris Pratt, from Benedict Cumberbatch to Brie Larson. That makes them both expensive, and difficult to film, because Marvel need to find a way of making countless schedules coincide. Even this year's Avengers 4 reshoots will be difficult to schedule. If any feature Tom Holland, for example, then getting him to Atlanta to film the reshoots will disrupt the filming schedule for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Given these logistical problems, it's no wonder Marvel is toying with abandoning the "phased" approach. What's more, the studio is even considering trying to establish another brand for their movies, one to rival the Avengers franchise. We don't yet know much about those plans, but it suggests Phase 3 may actually lead to Marvel shelving the Avengers films for a while.

Related: Who's Alive At The End of Avengers: Infinity War?
Of course, that doesn't mean the Avengers team will come to an end. Marvel could easily choose to end Avengers 4 with a formal team, but simply not release an Avengers movie for a while; give the concept a rest, have the heroes operating in the background of the usual solo hero films.



WHO COULD STAR IN THE NEXT AVENGERS?
Assuming there is a formal team of Avengers, who's actually left? It seems reasonable to assume Avengers 4 will be the end of the road for a number of the classic Avengers, whose contracts are coming to an end. So we can presumably say farewell to Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, the two heroes who've really dominated the MCU's first three phases. Black Widow will presumably stay alive; even if the Black Widow movie is a prequel, it would be rather odd releasing that film a couple of years after killing the character off. And the Hulk will likely stick around, given Mark Ruffalo has at least one more movie on his contract after Avengers 4.

Hawkeye's unlikely to remain an Avenger. Even if Hawkeye survives Avengers 4, the character's long-term arc has basically been one of a hero who's desperately trying to retire!

The future of the MCU seems to belong to four heroes, so it's reasonable to assume they'd be major players in any future Avengers team. Spider-Man, naturally, is a major part of this - the Homecoming sequel will essentially introduce viewers to the post-Phase 3 MCU - so it would make sense for Peter Parker to become an Avenger in the aftermath of Thanos's defeat. What's more, involvement with the Avengers may well explain why the Homecoming sequel involves Spider-Man crossing the globe, rather than being based in New York. As an Avenger, the wall-crawler's remit would be global.

Captain Marvel is being positioned as one of the franchise's most important heroes. She'll make her big-screen debut in next year's Captain Marvel, which will presumably explain where Carol Danvers has been for the last few decades, and then will be a major player in Avengers 4. Kevin Feige has described Captain Marvel as one of Marvel's most powerful heroes. "Her powers are off the charts," he noted, "and when she's introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we've ever had." Marvel is clearly trying to build up a sense of momentum around the character, the first female superhero to star in an MCU movie, and that simply has to be going somewhere.

Thirdly, there's Black Panther. This year's Black Panther was an unprecedented success. It's on the verge of grossing $700 million worldwide, and it's unlikely even Avengers:

Infinity War can beat it in the domestic box office. Marvel is already talking about a sequel, with director Ryan Coogler attending a recent summit to chart the course of the MCU's future. The studio believed Wakanda would resonate with viewers - that's why the Russos chose to have Infinity War's entire third act take place in the fictional African nation - but they seem to have underestimated just how much that would be the case. It's safe to say Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther will become one of the MCU's core heroes.

The final hero is Doctor Strange. While the character's solo film wasn't Marvel's greatest success, Strange was one of the highlights of Infinity War, proving to be a tremendously effective hero. It's true Marvel hasn't seemed to be in a rush to announce the sequel, but the popularity boost of Infinity War will surely mean that's about to change. Even if Marvel do finally begin work on Doctor Strange 2, though, it's actually possible Doctor Strange won't join up. His power-levels are a little too significant, making him pretty hard to write against anything but the most cosmic threats.
These are just the franchise-leading heroes, of course. We shouldn't rule out other members too. Bucky, Falcon, Valkyrie, War Machine, or even Scarlet Witch. Marvel seem to have long-term plans for Wanda, with Kevin Feige suggesting Marvel's powers are being retconned back to magic. There's a reason for that change, so we should expect Scarlet Witch to either be an Avenger, or to cameo in future Marvel movies. Perhaps she'll seek guidance in the Mystic Arts from Doctor Strange?

At this stage, it's difficult to know whether or not Marvel will assemble a new team of Avengers at the end of Avengers 4. Whether they do so or not, though, the reality is the studio will probably want to take a breather from these tentpole Avengers movies; they're becoming a logistical challenge, and complicating production of the rest of the Marvel movies. Of course, there's no way Marvel will retire the brand forever; it's simply too successful, with Infinity War on the verge of grossing $2 billion in the global box office. So that means when we get the next Avengers movie, it's likely to be an even bigger event than any of the films to date.

Hawkeye's Avengers 4 Arc Is The Perfect Time To Introduce Thunderbolts



With Hawkeye striking out on his own in a world where many heroes have been killed, Avengers 4 may just sow the seeds for the Thunderbolts. It's been said that Avengers 4 will be more shocking than Avengers: Infinity War, which makes sense given it will be the culmination of the entire MCU to date. But with how this year's team-up ended, it's hard to imagine what the follow-up will do to raise the stakes. After all, many of the fallen heroes will be returning ahead of new solo movies, so some real consequences need to be introduced.

Much of the surprising plot in Avengers 4 may end up revolving around Hawkeye. Clint Barton was completely absent from Avengers: Infinity War, but we know Hawkeye will get a spotlight next year. In fact, rumors have swirled that he may have suffered a devastating loss, meaning his family could have been wiped out with the snap of Thanos' fingers. That means a darker take on Hawkeye could be on the horizon, one that will see him take up some version of his Ronin mantle from the comics.

As with much of Avengers 4, we don't know a lot about what Hawkeye's story will entail. Rumors have emerged that Avengers 4 will include the Skrulls and it will be Hawkeye and Black Widow who are charged with hunting them down. Not only would this tie in the events of Captain Marvel, but it would add a layer of espionage to the film that would align Avengers 4 with the themes of the previous Russo Brothers movies in the MCU. For now, however, that's all speculation. Avengers 4 will already have its hands full picking up the story post-Infinity War and setting up Phase 4 of the MCU. So while the Skrulls could be a big part of that, we're also likely to see the teasing of new heroes and villains altogether.

ENTER THE THUNDERBOLTS


Back in 1997, the Marvel Universe in the comics was devastated by Onslaught, leaving many of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four dead. With that gap in the superhero community, new faces emerged, but so did new villainous plots. While both version of Baron Zemo spent decades fighting Captain America, Helmut came up with one of the more ingenious plots for any rogue in the comics. Pulling together a number of low-level supervillains, he had their names and costumes changed and posed them as a new team of superheroes. Leading the group as Citizen V, Zemo premiered the Thunderbolts as a modern and media-savvy group that was all too willing to step into the shoes of the fallen heroes of Earth.

Over time, the group was outed, but many of the villains actually turned against Zemo and become reluctant heroes. Thunderbolts 2.0 involved these reformed villains trying to do good. But to keep them on the up and up, an Avenger stepped in to guide them. Hawkeye's time working with the Thunderbolts saw members like Beetle and Screaming Mimi transition fully to the heroes Mach-I (eventually becoming Mach-II, III, etc) and Songbird. Hawkeye would then leave the group and over the years they'd grow to look more like the Suicide Squad. Some old members stuck around, while new recruits included criminals like Crossbones and Juggernaut who were trying to get time off their sentence. Bucky and Luke Cage have also both led the team, meaning the Thunderbolts have a foot in both the current film and TV side of the MCU.

Despite the other leaders the team has had, the Thunderbolts remain a big part of Hawkeye's backstory. The current Old Man Hawkeye story even sees Hawkeye killing his former teammates after they revert to villainy in an alternate future. All of this points out how likely it is that if the Thunderbolts ever join the MCU, Hawkeye will be involved



Like Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers 4 won't have a ton of time to introduce new characters. But it's clear that the future of the MCU will be teased in the new movie. With it described as bigger and bolder than the first film, Avengers 4 is sure to tease out the next MCU team of heroes, and the Thunderbolts are one with plenty of mileage. Thanks to their various iterations, there's a lot Marvel could do with the team. Avengers 4 could see Zemo freed from prison in the chaos, finally taking a more theatrical approach to being a villain in the wake of Thanos' war. With so many heroes dead, the Thunderbolts could emerge as one of several new groups of superheroes around the world. Hawkeye could then have a run-in with them during one of his missions, setting up their future together.

Avengers: Infinity War proved a villain like Red Skull could come back after years of being absent. Therefore, it seems unlikely we'll never see Zemo again. With a tease in Avengers 4, Phase 4 of the MCU could fully dive into this mysterious new group of heroes only to reveal they're actually villains. From there, Hawkeye could step in as a mentor for another movie that could set up a darker franchise with a revolving roster of characters. Another possibility is a proper movie/TV crossover, with Luke Cage leading the team in a Thunderbolts streaming series that lets the show be a bit more mature. Hawkeye could then cameo, tying things together in a bigger way than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is able to.

Fans have spent years clamoring for a Thunderbolts movie or TV series, and Marvel seems destined to make one of these happen. The group and their founding members keep popping up in the comics, and the foundation exists for them to arrive in the MCU. Next year's film will have plenty on its plate, but idea of seeding the Thunderbolts for Phase 4 of the MCU seems like a strong possibility for Avengers 4.

Newly Surfaced AVENGERS 4 Set Video Provides Some Interesting Clues About The Movie - SPOILERS







A video from the set of Avengers 4 has appeared online and given its setting and the characters involved, it could shed some more light on where the highly anticipated Infinity War sequel is going...


"
 
I'm pretty sure this video may have been shared by a British tabloid a while back but it's popped back online after seemingly being missed at the time it was originally published. Either way, it offers up a look at Chris Evans as Captain America, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man on the set of Avengers 4 engaging in a very interesting looking sequence.

The video certainly seems to point to The Hulk being able to talk in this movie and it looks like Iron Man is very much leading the charge here. What we don't know is why Chris Evans is wearing the suit Captain America had in The Avengers! Is that because he's from the past or was it the only costume Tony Stark had lying around for him? Whatever the answer may be, it's definitely very intriguing.

Do you have any theories about what might be happening here? How excited are you to check out Avengers 4 next year? As always, share your thoughts on that and more in the comments section
Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

AVENGERS 4: Evidence Mounts That The Movie Will Play Around With Time As Evangeline Lilly Compares It To LOST


There's been a lot of speculation that Avengers 4 will bring time travel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and now comments from Ant-Man and The Wasp star Evangeline Lilly may shed some light on that...


Speculation continues running rampant about what we should expect in Avengers 4 and time travel remains one of the most popular theories. Set photos featuring present-day characters meeting The Avengers era Captain America have seemingly confirmed that will be happening and now Ant-Man and The Wasp star Evangeline Lilly has made some remarks which also point to that being the case.

"When I heard about Infinity War [and Avengers 4] and the direction that they’re heading, I did have this moment of realizing, oh, wow, there’s a bit of a déjà vu for me with the Lost franchise," she reveals before dropping perhaps the biggest clue yet about where the Marvel sequel will be taking us.

"We are hitting that [Lost] season 4 space," she added. "Where everything’s about to shift, and you’re about to lose the solid ground underneath you. And [Ant-Man and the Wasp], of course, will play a part in that." As you may recall, the series featured a number of flash forwards and time-travel shenanigans during season four which points to Avengers 4 taking us to some unexpected places.

'Avengers 4' CineEurope Presentation Footage Description

Yesterday, Disney took the floor at CineEurope in Barcelona to give a presentation on all of the films from the company's various studios. Of course, this included the upcoming blockbusters from Marvel Studios, Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.

Fans have been scouring the internet since the presentation to find out exactly what happened during the presentations, though nothing concrete has been posted. However, the folks at MCU Cosmic have finally shared details from the Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel presentations, and they aren't exactly what we expected.

First of all, the site claims that the rumors about a scene featuring Ant-Man talking to Iron Man about various realities are totally false. The Avengers 4 presentation didn't actually include footage from the film at all. In fact, it was merely a video from Kevin Feige.

The report states that the Avengers 4 video featured Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, sitting in a chair and talking to the advertisers at the event. He shared a few details about the upcoming film, apologized for having fewer heroes to advertise this time around, and explained that the rest of the Marvel characters would need to band together in order to save the universe from Thanos.

And that was it. Unfortunately, that was the entire Avengers 4 presentation, no real footage at all.

Such wasn't the case for Captain Marvel, though. The studio did have a sizzle reel prepared for the Brie Larson vehicle that hits theaters in March. While there isn't a frame-by-frame description of this footage, the report does state that it included Larson's take on the titular character. The video introduced exhibitors to who Captain Marvel is, explained her various powers, and said that she will be the next face and leader of the Marvel Cinematic Universe heading into Phase Four.

Marvel also showed some footage from Ant-Man and the Wasp, but that's much less of a surprise considering the film arrives in just a couple of weeks.

When do you think the first real footage from Avengers 4 will arrive? Could an official title drop sometime soon? Let us know by dropping a line in the comments below!

Avengers 4 Is About Heroes Becoming 'A True Team' Together


Kevin Feige teased that Avengers 4 will be about the Earth's Mightiest Heroes learning how to become "a true team" together. Fans may still not know the title for next year's Avengers movie, but the man behind the MCU has provided a hint about what they can expect from the next Marvel Studios ensemble and it sounds like the remaining heroes, as well as their upcoming recruits, will have to set aside their differences to ultimately defeat Thanos.

As the ultimate culminating film of the MCU's first decade, it's quite odd that the movie has fewer key players compared to this year's Avengers: Infinity War, but it'll also allow a more complex storyline since there are fewer characters to shine a spotlight on. Still, the movie will have its complications, especially considering it may officially establish the concept of time travel in the MCU. The fate of the universe is currently in the hands of the surviving heroes, including the six founding members of the Avengers. But while they have been fighting side by side for a few years now, it seems like they'll need to re-establish their working dynamic in order to avenge the galaxy from the Mad Titan's galactic genocide.

While Marvel Studios' presentation during the European film exhibitors’ conference CineEurope in Barcelona, Spain, didn't feature a special first look at next year's Avengers 4, or a title reveal, Feige still shared some information about what people can look forward to in the movie. According to the company boss - as shared on Twitter by Nikita Byrkin, who was present at the event - next year's Phase 3 capper will see the remaining MCU heroes learn how to truly be in a team. According to Byrkin, Feige said, "We are going to see our characters make an effort to become a true team with one another."


Based on Feige's latest statement, it seems like the Avengers (at least the original members) are coming full circle as they find themselves trying to re-learn how to work well with each other. An early draft of Infinity War included a reunion between Tony and Steve, but writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely explained that they ultimately decided not to include it as it took too much screen time when the film was supposed to be focusing on establishing Thanos. Considering the events of Captain America: Civil War wedged a divide between Tony and Steve, alongside their respective teams, it'll be interesting to know how their first meeting in at least two years will go down considering their first real defeat at the hands of the Mad Titan. It's safe to say that the two in-conflict heroes will have no choice but to set aside their differences and band together come Avengers 4.

It's important to note as well that it has been more than six years since the original team fought as a complete unit during the Battle of New York. Sure, they might've gone up against Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but, they had the assist from massively powerful heroes such as Vision and Scarlet Witch (who are both currently dead). This also coincides with running theories about Avengers 4 revisiting the Battle of New York from 2012's The Avengers. Each individual has gone through a lot over the last several years, so they would need to be re-acquainted with each other to be able to work as a single team.

Obviously, Ant-Man/Scott Lang and Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers are also joining the final bout against Thanos. It's still unclear how they'd specifically fit in the Avengers 4 narrative other than the fact that they're both really powerful (yes, even Ant-Man). Chances are that it will have to do something with the Quantum Realm considering both Ant-Man & The Wasp and Captain Marvel will explore the Microverse.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Writers Offer Update on 'Avengers 4'


The entire Marvel fandom will be rocking back and forth on the edge of their seats for the next year or so, as they wait for the movie that will resolve the tragic third act cliffhanger of Avengers: Infinity War. Of course, we're talking about the still-untitled Avengers 4.

While the release of Marvel's Avengers conclusion is still nearly a year away, the team behind the film is heading back to work today, gearing up for the final stretch of production.

Last night, Stephen McFeely and Chris Markus, writers of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, joined Kevin Smith for a live taping of his Fat Man on Batman show to talk about their work on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and take questions from the fans in attendance.

At the very end of the show, just before he signed off, Smith asked the writers when they were going back to work on Avengers 4.

"Tomorrow at 11 o'clock," Markus said.

"Status of Avengers 4 is that we shot it but it's not due for a while," McFeely clarified. "There's time for reshoots and fixing and we're just scrubbing through it now. The Russo brothers have been in there for a few weeks now after the press tour and all that. And the whole team is getting together tomorrow."

If you weren't aware, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 were shot back-to-back, much like the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This is what allowed the movies to hit theaters only one year apart.

So now that all of the leg work is done, the team just needs to work through the reshoots and post-production aspects, touching up and fine tuning the film as the prepare it for release.

While this news might be exciting to us, it's a little frustrating to this team, who has a lot of work ahead of them between now and next May.

As Markus explaied, "It's disheartening to come off of the one that's all done and made $2 billion and get in the room that's just full of part, you know? And it's just like 'Oh shit, it's not done.'"

Being the comedian that he is, Smith couldn't help but take a jab at the ending of Infinity War before he said goodbye. "There's just a lot of ash that just blew away."

This next year is going to feel like an eternity, isn't it?

Avengers 4 Theory Suggests Hulk Becomes An Agent of SHIELD





Will the Hulk be reinvented as an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. in Avengers 4? One new theory posits he might, in an arc lifted from Mark Waid's Indestructible Hulk run.
Marvel is working on a three-film character arc for the Hulk, one that began in Thor: Ragnarok, continued into Avengers: Infinity War, and finishes in next year's Avengers 4. It's now clear this arc brings the Hulk and Bruce Banner personas into head-on conflict. "Hulk speaking [in Thor: Ragnarok] is the start to separating of these two individuals," Mark Ruffalo explained, "these identities in this split-identity person, and where that's going to end up going."

A new theory, developed by CBR, suggests that this character arc will ultimately see the Hulk and Bruce Banner personas combine - and that the Hulk will become an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

"PROFESSOR HULK" AND THE PANTHEON


The MCU has always treated the Hulk and Banner identities as separate beings who share a single body; that's why Bruce has always referred to Hulk as "the other guy." Thor: Ragnarok brought those personalities into conflict, with the Hulk resisting the urge to transform back to Banner for a full two years. By the end of the film, Hulk was clearly frustrated with Banner, actually allowing him to crash head-first onto the Bifrost before coming out to play. In Avengers: Infinity War, Hulk took a brutal beat-down from Thanos and then refused to return during the Battle of Wakanda. Although viewers interpreted that as fear of Thanos, co-director Joe Russo insisted there was another reason. "I think that if the Hulk were to say why, it’d be [that] Banner only wants Hulk for fighting. I think he’s had enough of saving Banner’s ass."

As CBR rightly note, this arc is lifted from Peter David's legendary run on The Incredible Hulk; some scenes in Avengers: Infinity War are even straight comic-to-page adaptations of Incredible Hulk #376. That issue featured scenes in which Bruce reeled, his body rebelling against the transformation, hands enlarging and turning green and gray. It also featured dialogue where the personas spoke to one another through Banner's mouth. All that actually happened in Infinity War.

Incredible Hulk #377 saw the Banner and Hulk personalities merge into a single, new being. Referred to by fans as "Professor Hulk," he had the intelligence (and clothes) of Banner and the brute strength of the Hulk. Following leaked art for Avengers 4 showed the Hulk in some sort of black bodysuit and footage of the Hulk in armor was shown at CineEurope, it's been expected this transformation is coming to the MCU. But, as CBR note, the film can't simply reproduce that arc; in the comics, Hulk became a member of a super-team known as the Pantheon, and it's far too late in the day to introduce the Pantheon for Avengers 4. But there's another option.


BRUCE BANNER, AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D.


CBR suggests Marvel Studios could look to a more recent comic book run for inspiration; Mark Waid's Indestructible Hulk, which launched in 2013. This saw Banner and the Hulk agree to work for S.H.I.E.L.D., with Bruce modifying a S.H.I.E.L.D. biosuit into armor that could be worn by the Hulk when in the field. And, it must be said, the little we know of the Hulk's costume in Avengers 4 seems more evocative of Indestructible Hulk than the Pantheon era.
Although S.H.I.E.L.D. was disbanded in the aftermath of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (and the movies tend to ignore Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), it's possible the organization is coming back in a big way. Set photos for Avengers 4 have shown Tony Stark wearing some sort of S.H.I.E.L.D. tactical vest. Meanwhile, the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War revealed that Nick Fury and Maria Hill are working for an organization that looks a lot like a new version of S.H.I.E.L.D.. It's possible Avengers 4 will see Earth's Mightiest Heroes working alongside a reborn S.H.I.E.L.D. - in which case, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Hulk actually become a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, donning that modified biosuit.

Marvel don't really tend to do straight comic-to-page adaptations. Rather, they blend ideas into a new form, one that suits the MCU. The "Professor Hulk" personality seems to have been clearly set up by Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War, but Avengers 4 could easily draw inspiration from Mark Waid's more recent run.

Avengers 4 Is Bringing in Kronos of the Eternals?



There have been a lot of rumors and theories surrounding the plot of Avengers 4 over the last few weeks and some of them make a lot of sense, while others are recycled fibs that end up getting debated over and over again. However, there is a new fan theory floating around that makes complete sense and involves the appearance of Kronos of The Eternals in the conclusion to Infinity War. As with all fan theories, we'll take this one with a grain of salt for the time being, but there are some pretty interesting bits of evidence to support this new Avengers 4 idea.

At the end of last month, Jim Starlin participated in a Q&A session at Puerto Rico Comic-Con where he revealed that Avengers 4 would include another one of his characters. Starlin created Thanos, Drax the Destroyer, and Gamora, to name a few, which got fans excited about thinking about who could be next. In addition to the aforementioned characters who have already appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Starlin also created Lady Death (who the Russo Brothers have already ruled out), A'lars, Eros, aka Starfox, and Kronos as well as many more characters.
The Eternals movie is said to be in development by Marvel Studios and there was a subtle hint at the project in Infinity War when Red Skull mentions Thanos' father A'lars. That hint is one of the many ways that the MCU has been teasing The Eternals film. It was also recently announced that Matthew and Ryan Firpo are writing the script for the project, which means that it's further along than once thought. A'lars may seem like the go to character from Jim Starlin that will make it into Avengers 4, but Kronos makes even more sense.
Kronos helped to build Titan and he is also the cosmic master of time in the Marvel universe. That last bit is the important part. It has been heavily reported that Avengers 4 will include time travel as well as other dimensions that the Quantum Realm will help explain. If Tony Stark and the gang are out altering the fabric of time, it would be pretty logical to see Kronos, who is also Thanos' grandfather, make an appearance in the film, creating some awesome fan service as well as further setting up The Eternals movie.

We're still pretty much a year away from getting any sort of confirmation about Kronos' involvement in Avengers 4, but the evidence does seem to suggest that he could very well be making at least a small cameo like the one that Red Skull made in Infinity War. Ant-Man 2 will further explore the Quantum Realm, which should shed some light on how it will be incorporated into Avengers 4, and that movie opens July 6th in theaters. Additionally, Captain Marvel opens in March, so we will have a better understanding of the final installment of Phase 3 of the MCU at that time. You can read more about the Kronos theory at MCU Cosmic.

RUMOR: Another Eternal May Have a Small Cameo in Avengers 4

June 20, 2018 - by Jeremy Conrad

It’s been a little while since we’ve had any good rumors about Avengers 4, but this week has brought one that makes a lot of sense.
Over the last week or so a source who’s been right in the past in regards to MCU stuff has been reaching out to different sites mentioning the name Kronos in connection with Avengers 4. For a while there have been rumors of a new cosmic character popping up in the movie, and while it was previously thought to be the Living Tribunal; Kronos makes a lot of sense if you put it together with who the character is and what’s known about the next Avengers movie.
  • Jim Starlin reportedly told a convention crowd last month that he’ll receive more credit in Avengers 4, meaning another one of his characters will be showing up and he did create Kronos.
  • He is an Eternal, which is something Marvel is putting a lot of push behind.
  • He helped found the planet of Titan, which we saw in Infinity War and is where Thanos is from.
  • He is the cosmic master of time in the Marvel universe.
That final point is a huge one and why this rumor connects all of the previous rumors about Avengers 4. If Tony Stark and the Avengers are jumping through time and making a mess of the time line in an effort to get the Infinity Stones before Thanos, it would definitely get the attention of Kronos who could then make an appearance in the movie.

Sorry, Avengers 4 is Not Titled ‘Fallen Heroes’



Following CineEurope yesterday, Twitter and Reddit have been flooded with fake Avengers 4 titles with hoaxers trying to claim that they have a leaked picture of the title. Except Marvel didn’t reveal the title there. They only referred to the movie as “Untitled Avengers
That means the movie is not called “Fallen Heroes”. Or “Heroes Forever”, “Forever Heroes”, “Time Break”, “Fallen Son”, “Eternal”, or any other blurry picture someone on Twitter is trying to pass off as a title to you.
This is what the screen looked like at CineEurope. It was a small screen, in a small room, and there was no title reveal:





When Marvel announces the Avengers 4 title, it will be everywhere. It’s not going to be in some secret room where someone will take a crooked and blurry cellphone picture of it.

When and How Marvel Studios Could Reveal the Avengers 4 Title



Ever since Marvel Studios decided to not reveal the Avengers 4 title at CineEurope, the internet has been infested with hoaxers who are making up fake titles in an effort to fool people into thinking that the title was actually revealed. It’s also sparked a new round of speculation of not only what the title could be, but also when Marvel Studios could reveal it. There are realistically a couple of scenarios where it could happen.
The title could still be leaked via a licensee. I’m not talking about a blurry picture taken at an angle off a laptop screen like everyone is trying to fake now, but just a title leak from someone who is working on the merchandise side of things as those companies are starting to work on their Avengers 4 stuff already. But if that doesn’t happen, these are the realistic options for the reveal:
  • The Avengers: Infinity War home video release: This actually isn’t too far away. The movie hits digital on July 31st and Blu-Ray/4K on August 14th. It’s possible they could do a featurette about the next Avengers movie on that release and the title will be included there. The digital version includes all of the extras from the disc, so it could be as early as the end of next month.
  • A Social Media reveal: People laugh at this, but that’s how Lucasfilm revealed the titles for The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and Solo. It’s definitely a possibility and something another company owned by Disney has done three times. The Last Jedi reveal was actually done that way because the trailer was being finished and they had to put the title on it, and they didn’t want it leaking through unofficial channels. The same could happen with Avengers 4.
  • The first trailer: This would be the latest they’d wait and it’d be a miracle if it didn’t leak from the trailer as people see those long before the public does. If they wait this long, it wouldn’t be until late November until it comes out.
Remember, Marvel Studios is not in Hall H at SDCC this year, they are not doing a Phase 4 event, and there’s no D23 in 2018. So there’s not really a big event where they could do the reveal. The three options above are the most realistic ones, so remember that the next time someone sends you a blurry title logo made in Photoshop and taken off their laptop screen.

Avengers 4 Fan Theory Places Iron Man in Thanos Buster Armor





Avengers: Infinity War left the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in disarray, and the Infinity Stones in unknown location. Now that Thanos has achieved his goal, the remaining heroes will have to devise a way to take down him down in Avengers 4.

One fan theory from Everything Always imagines how the Avengers could take the fight to Thanos, with Tony Stark retrieving the Infinity Stones.


The issue is that there needs to be a device to contain the cosmic artifacts. Instead of trying to forge a new Gauntlet, the theory suggests Tony would create “Thanos Buster” armor that’s capable of tapping into the energies of the Infinity Stones.


Considering Tony may have a lot of time to himself on Titan (Nebula being the only one remaining to keep him company), he certainly could devise something so outlandish. A sequel video also suggests Tony would be able to create the armor with the help of other characters like Eitri the Dwarf King and Shuri.

Footage from Avengers 4 screened at CineEurope 2018 in Barcelona is rumored to have depicted Tony & Co. gathering alternate versions of the Infinity Stones from across the multiverse, so this theory certainly may be plausible. However, it will likely be quite a while longer before we can can consider this anything more but inventive, and intriguing, conjecture.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers 4 arrives May 3, 2019.

Avengers 4 Title Won't Be Revealed Until the End of the Year

For those who had hoped a recent report that claimed the Avengers 4 title will be revealed at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp in a few weeks, you may be disappointed. While promoting Ant-Man and the Wasp, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that the trailer reveal likely won't happen until the end of this year, but it seems nothing is set in stone at this time. Here's what Feige had to say below, revealing the title reveal will happen after the first teaser for Captain Marvel surfaces.


"That'll be after the Captain Marvel teaser probably, announcing that title. It'll be towards the end of the year with however we launch that film."

It's worth noting that the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped on November 29 of last year, so it's possible that the first trailer for Avengers 4 will drop around the same time frame as its predecessor. We also know that there will be no trailers dropping for any Marvel movies at San Diego Comic-Con this year, since it has previously been confirmed that Marvel is skipping their traditional Hall H panel this year. Since Captain Marvel is still shooting and Avengers 4 is deep in post-production, it makes sense that the studio isn't quite ready to showcase those movies yet, resulting in them skipping SDCC.


There have been a number of theories as to what the Avengers 4 title may be, with the Russo Brothers revealing in a late-April interview that the title is actually, "scary." In our piece from last month about the 15 questions Avengers 4 needs to answer, we posited our own guess for this title, The Last Avengers, which obviously hasn't been confirmed quite yet, and we won't know for sure what the name will be until, apparently, the end of this year. Our guess for the Avengers 4 title has by no means been confirmed, but it could make sense, especially following recent plot rumors about Avengers 4's ending.

A recent rumor claimed at at the end of Avengers 4, after Earth's Mightiest Heroes finally defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin), they are left with the six Infinity Stones. Captain America (Chris Evans) uses the Time Stone to return to his beloved Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and live out the rest of his days with her. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) uses the Soul Stone to bring his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) back to life to rebuild Asgard on Earth, while Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) gives the Reality Stone back to Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) so she can bring Vision (Paul Bettany) back to life, while Bruce Banner uses the MInd Stone to separate himself from The Hulk. Tony Stark then takes the power stone and smashes it, only to "snort the remains," but this last part is thought to be a "joke." The rumor made no mention of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) or the Space Stone.

All we know for sure about Avengers 4 is the movie will hit theaters on May 3, 2019, between Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, which is set in the 1990s, and the first Phase 4 movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2, which starts shooting this summer and opens July 5, 2019, two months after Avengers 4. You can head over to Collider for their full report on the Avengers 4 title.

Will Wasp Return in Avengers 4?


Are we going to see The Wasp return to help balance the universe in Avengers 4? It hasn't been outright confirmed, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is strongly suggesting that's going to be the case. Evangeline Lilly is set to make her debut as the hero in Ant-Man and the Wasp and fans are surely going to be eager to see more of her in the future. It's not a matter of if but when and that when is most likely in next year's finale to Phase 3 of the MCU.


Kevin Feige has been making the press rounds promoting Ant-Man and the Wasp, which has debuted to very strong reviews from critics ahead of its July 6 arrival in theaters. During a recent interview, he was asked about Wasp suiting up alongside the remaining Avengers in next year's sequel to Infinity War. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I think she's talked about it. There's already been additional Wasp filming of her for future movies but she's great. This whole movie was about putting her at the forefront and was about making good on the promise of the end of the last film where she says, 'About damn time.' And that whole movie was about the fact that clearly she was qualified to put on a suit and do what was right but she kept being prevented by her father, for reasons that were revealed in that film and reasons that have to do with her mother and now, of course, she becomes the key hero to attempt to rescue her mom and seeing that father-daughter relationship repaired in this movie was something that was great fun for us and to see here step in the forefront."

The fact that he says there has already been additional Wasp filming is pretty telling. It's doubtful she's going to show up in Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home hasn't started filming yet. The process of elimination gets you to Avengers 4 pretty quickly. Evangeline Lilly also spoke a bit on the topic and, when asked when we can expect to see more of her Marvel hero on screen, she expressed a great deal of enthusiasm to get back in the saddle.

"I have been thinking the exact same thing, and now that it's finally done and dusted, now that I've seen the movie and I can kind of, 'Whew,' like, 'I did it. It's over.' Now, the immediate question is when do I get to do it again?"

Evangeline Lilly first suggested that Wasp would be in Avengers 4 back in October 2016, but a lot can change in two years and it was never confirmed by the brass at Marvel Studios. Again, this isn't official confirmation but it's pretty much the nail in the coffin. Hope Pym is going to, in all likelihood, be gearing up to take down Thanos with the remaining Marvel heroes on May 3, 2019. This news comes to us courtesy of Comicbook.com.

New Avengers 4 Character Details Revealed By The Higher Quality Art


More art for Avengers 4 has found its way online, giving up new character details ahead of the secretive MCU culmination. Officially, there's not been much concrete information about next year's untitled Avengers sequel, with Marvel letting Avengers: Infinity War's cliffhanger ending do most of the talking. However, that doesn't mean some info hasn't made it out,

From set photos, we were able to deduce that Avengers 4 will be dealing with time travel, and art shown at CineEurope gave a first look at the heroes of the film - the OG Avengers plus snap-survivors Ant-Man, Rocket, Nebula and Captain Marvel - and their redesign. Hawkeye is looking Ronin, Captain America has lost his beard, Hulk's got some clothes and War Machine has quite the upgrade. Now we have a better look at some of those assets.


Avengers 4 art - described as marketing materials - has found its way online. While most of the designs are just isolated character models from that CineEurope, they are of a considerably higher quality and thus contain new reveals or otherwise confirm previous assumptions. For example, it's much easier to see that Thanos has all the Infinity Stones, further pushing towards the film's method of time travel being the Quantum Realm not the Time Stone. But there's more than just that. Here's everything new we've learned.

WHAT CAPTAIN MARVEL'S POWER BLASTS LOOK LIKE

The centerpiece of the art has to be Captain Marvel. Previously, we've only really got a taste of what Brie Larson's Carol Danvers will look like in concept art at SDCC and set photos that revealed only a green, proto-costume. That's all change now: there's a lot of assets for Captain Marvel in this latest leak, giving our best peek at the costumed hero. In terms of the suit, it's mostly as the slew of fanart had imagined, but there's one totally new aspect.
Captain Marvel is going to be the most powerful hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, and a key part of that is her energy manipulation. Much of the art puts focus on her energy blasts, showing that while they are orbs of orange light as seen in the CineEurope image, they have a more concentrated middle and a strong sparkling effect. This sort of power isn't exactly a new visual in the MCU - Iron Man's repulsors fit a similar manner - so it makes sense to go for a more unique styling.

WAR MACHINE HAS MULTIPLE BOOSTERS


While Iron Man has had dozens of upgrades over the past ten years - it was frankly surprising Tony Stark had only one iteration of the Bleeding Edge armor in Avengers: Infinity War - War Machine has been a little behind. Each new movie has brought a slight tweak, but nothing of the breadth or development of his best buddy (in Iron Man 3 it was basically a reskin for Iron Patriot). In Avengers 4, however, Rhodey is catching up.

The CineEurope art already teased a Bleeding Edge upgrade for War Machine, so that's not exactly new. In isolation, however, some of the finer details can be made out. He's got three sets of repulsors - in his feet, behind his calves, and on his lower back - and some seriously beefed side-arms.

HULK'S FULL-BODY ARMOR

Probably the biggest talking point about Avengers 4 is Hulk. Not only has the art confirmed that Bruce Banner will finally get the Green Goliath to come out and play after he refused to transform in Avengers: Infinity War, but he'll have a different look. The CineEurope Avengers 4 art revealed Hulk wearing some form of costume, sparking speculation that the film would see Banner's two minds merge to create something close to Professor Hulk.

We're still a way off confirmation of that either way, but the new Avengers 4 designs do at least give us a better look at what Hulk's wearing. It's a proper tight-fitting, full-body suit, presumably made to stretch-to-fit (explaining the lack of shoes).

CAPTAIN MARVEL DOESN'T LOOK TO CHANGE BETWEEN MOVIES


We're rounding things off by going back to Captain Marvel, this time her own solo movie. Yes, the art isn't just for Avengers 4, but also Captain Marvel; there's a look at a two-eyed Nick Fury, as well as Carol Danvers in "street clothes", with a jacket barely covering up her star.


Both are neat, although what's most worth remarking on is that the costume for Captain Marvel (noted by the "CM" designation) and for Avengers 4 (the flying pose from the CineEurope image) look to be the same design. It's become standard - as already mentioned with Iron Man - for superheroes to get a new look each film for merchandising purposes, but this suggests that (as with Black Panther who also had his solo movie months before an Avengers team-up), she's going to be consistent... at least for the first two of no doubt many appearances.
-
None of these details reveal much about the story of Avengers 4, which Marvel is unsurprisingly keeping a tight lock on, but the subtle changes and details do begin to tease how - hopefully - the film will be a true evolution of the MCU.
