While Marvel Studios is basking in the sunlight of success, what with Ant-Man and the Wasp set to close out what’s been a record-breaking year for the Disney subsidiary next month, Kevin Feige and co. are busy putting the final touches on what’s sure to be their most significant release yet, Avengers 4.
With reshoots expected to wrap up in early September, ahead of a May 3rd, 2019 release, the film colloquially referred to as Avengers 4, originally titled Infinity War – Part 2, has remained under lockdown, predictably, ever since it was announced in October of 2014. However, earlier this year, set photos from the Infinity War follow-up seemed to indicate that the titular supergroup would somehow be transported back to the Battle of New York featured in the first Avengers movie.
And now, if some new pics are any indication, it indeed seems as if we’ll be returning to a specific moment from the 2012, Joss Whedon-directed blockbuster, and it’ll pivot on Tony Stark/Iron Man. As you can see below, Atlanta Magazine has shared several snapshots from the production which feature military humvees, a Southwest Airlines advertisement, and a late-model sedan, “all of which could be seen on the streets of New York” during the aforementioned film where “Iron Man crashed after successfully destroying a leviathan.”
Naturally, this goes without saying, but these stills are far from confirmation of anything. That said, the proof does appear to be in the pudding. Given that way back in January, Captain America (Chris Evans), Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) were all captured with a peculiar device equipped to their respective wrists, the notion that some sort of perspective manipulation will occur in the film definitely looks to be a foregone conclusion.
Unfortunately, at this juncture, only time will tell the goings-on of Avengers 4, but as soon as more comes to light, we’ll be sure to let you know.
