The Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown so much over the past ten years, with Avengers: Infinity War featuring an astonishingly long cast list. However, there’s always room for more and in the future, fans hope to see the likes of the X-Men, Fantastic Four and others join the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, which may just happen in a few years thanks to the Disney/Fox deal.
But imagine for a second that every character they wanted to use was already at the fingertips of Marvel Studios? What would Avengers 4 look like if it featured just about every hero out there? Well, YouTube channel Bigoso Animations has brought this superhero fan wet dream to life with an incredibly well done animated trailer for Avengers 4. Seriously, this is one of the best fan-made efforts we’ve seen in some time.
Inspired by leaks and concept art, the video does a decent job of predicting what the plot of Avengers 4 will be. As per expectations, it opens in the near future and sees Iron Man travel back in time in order to stop Thanos from collecting the Infinity Stones in the first place. Some nice touches include Tony Stark and Steve Rogers finally reconciling and a reference to Spider-Man: Far From Home with that Mysterio cameo.
The highlight has to be the ending, though, which imagines the heroes aligning in Wakanda to face Thanos one last time. And alongside the Avengers and the Guardians we have the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, the Defenders, Blade, Ghost Rider, Silver Surfer and Deadpool. It’s truly a majestic sight that would reduce even the Hulk to tears.
Of course, we know the Fox-owned characters aren’t up for grabs yet, the Netflix ones were considered for inclusion but were ultimately left out and there are no firm plans for Blade in the MCU right now (though that may soon change), but we like to think that one day a giant-sized team-up like this one will actually be conceivable. In the meantime, Avengers 4 likely won’t be a poor substitute when it arrives in theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
