The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a fascinating place of flux, given the horrifying events of Avengers: Infinity War. The Russo Brothers surprised everyone by having Josh Brolin's Thanos actually win, and wipe out half the galaxy after collecting the Infinity Stones. Fans were left with mouths agape, as their reactions echoed the surviving Avengers' dumbfounded expressions. All eyes are on if/how the situation will be resolved in the still untitled Avengers 4, with information being kept under wraps. The Russo brothers recently posted a cryptic photo from the film's set, and now it seems one detail may have a connection to Infinity War. Just check out the decoded post below.
Now this is interesting. While possible a mere coincidence, The Russo Brothers' recent Avengers 4 photo actually featured a connection to Avengers: Infinity War. Namely, the mysterious gadget seen behind Rhodey during the most recent film. Now the question is: what does it all mean?
This post from MCU Tweets is sure to inspire countless fan theories, since the mysterious device might have a connection between the two Avengers movies. Fans have been wondering how the surviving Avengers (plus Rocket and Nebula) will attempt to reverse Thanos' snap, and therefore revive the countless heroes and other victims that faded to dust when Thanos snapped his big purple finger. Perhaps the mysterious device holds the key, or at least part of the key, to restoring order to the galaxy.
Since it seems impossible for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to continue on without the likes of heroes like Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange, there are a tons of theories regarding how the good guys could somehow bring back the dusted characters in Avengers 4. With Nick Fury contacting Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, it's very possible the end game could involve her. Additionally, Ant-Man and The Wasp's mid-credits scene revealed that Paul Rudd's Ant-Man has been stranded in the Quantum Realm, with the mysterious setting having time traveling and/or universe traveling capabilities. There's a ton of possibilities, and the device seen in Avengers 4's photo is yet another one.
Unfortunately, the Russo Brothers likely aren't going to be spilling the beans anytime soon. The MCU will be focusing on the forthcoming release of Captain Marvel, and will be keeping tight lipped about the contents of Avengers 4. The Russo Brothers still haven't revealed the film's title, and reshoots are currently underway. And with things like James Gunn's firing from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise adding extra pressure and complications, there is a ton to juggle before Phase Three concludes.
All will be revealed when Avengers 4 arrives in theaters on May 3rd, 2019, but before that Captain Marvel will hit theaters March 8, 2019. In the meantime, check out our 2018 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
