Evangeline Lilly Compares Avengers 4 To Lost And Fuels Time Travel Theories


Here’s one from the archives: Evangeline Lilly comparing Avengers 4 to the fourth season of Lost, as the MCU is headed for uncharted territory, too.

ComicBook.com unearthed the interview earlier this week, as it lends credence to those time travel theories currently doing the rounds online. Indeed, prior to MCU Cosmic’s follow-up report, it was alleged that the sequel’s CineEurope footage contained some dialogue between Tony Stark and Scott Lang, who were said to be composing a means of travelling back in time so as to ensure Thanos isn’t able to collect the six Infinity Stones.

Turns out that scene description is utter nonsense, as subsequent reports have revealed that the Avengers 4 showreel placed the focus squarely on Kevin Feige as he drummed up the next chapter in the saga of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Couple this with Lilly’s previous comments, and it looks certain that things will get worse before they get better:

You want me to tell you about the flash-forwards and flashbacks and flash-sideways? 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. We are hitting that [Lost] Season 4 space 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.

If nothing else, this quote from Lilly is a timely reminder that Avengers 4 is about to whisk us off to some pretty unexpected places come 2019, and we imagine Joe and Anthony Russo, along with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, have one or two surprises tucked up their collective sleeve.

Once Ant-Man and the Wasp have enjoyed their moment in the sun (“it’s about damn time”), and Captain Marvel has cemented her place as the MCU’s powerful newcomer, all eyes will turn toward Avengers 4 in anticipation of its release on May 3rd, 2019.
