Avengers 4 Casting Call Might Hint At A Major Character Death


As evidenced by the steady stream of set photos, Atlanta is still playing host to Avengers 4, Marvel’s unnamed sequel currently on course for a release in 2019.

Nipping at the heels of Infinity War, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have now switched gears to orchestrate the second, conclusive chapter in their two-part epic, which presumably pits Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against Thanos for the final time in May of 2019.

Most of the MCU characters are expected to feature in some shape or form, but with Infinity War promising to bring about the death of a hero or two, fans have been furiously speculating as to who’s going to make it out alive and who won’t. Of course, there’s been no firm evidence pointing to which character may be the one to bite the dust just yet, but a new casting call for Avengers 4 does seem to indicate that someone will indeed be meeting their maker.

Mourners: Looking for men and women over the age of 18, all ethnicities, to portray mourners. Especially looking for good character looks and expressive faces. This will be photo selected by the film’s directors! Size restrictions: Men no larger than 44 coat, women dress size 0-8. FOR NEW FACES ONLY! You cannot have worked on this project previously, or be booked on upcoming days. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Though a bit vague, the above description certainly implies that there will be some kind of funeral scene in the film. Of course, without any further details, it’s impossible to say with absolute certainty that it will be for one of the heroes, but with everything we’ve been hearing, it does seem likely. It’s also interesting that the casting call notes that Joe and Anthony Russo are choosing the extras themselves, which indicates that this scene might be a prominent/important one.

Chalk that up as speculation for now, but what we can tell you with absolute certainty is that once Thanos has waged war on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and both Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel enjoy their time in the limelight, Marvel will unleash the so-far untitled Avengers 4 upon the moviegoing masses on May 3rd, 2019. That’s still an awful long way away, so until we have some firm answers for you to pour over, you can share your knee-jerk reaction to this latest news in the comments section below.
