First ‘Avengers 4’ Description Vaguely Outlines the Movie’s Plot, Hints at Story Element
Avengers 4 has recieved its first official description emphasizing that it’s the end of one massive story arc set up by 11 different movie franchises, hinting at how our heroes will fix things. (Unmarked Avengers: Infinity War spoilers ahead.)
At a licensing conference in Las Vegas, a description for the still-untitled Avengers movie has surfaced a little less than a month after the movie saw a wide release (hat tip MCU Cosmic):
“A culmination of 22 interconnected films, the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
As it stands, many of our heroes are dead after Thanos completed and utilized the Infinity Gauntlet at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, with the only known survivors being Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hulk, Okoye, M’Baku, Rocket, Nebula, Hawkeye, and Ant-Man (the last two of which sat out the events of the movie due to existing circumstances). Captain Marvel and Wasp are presumed to join them, as are the likes of Valkyrie and Kraglin Obfonteri (both of whom apparently survived the Snappening), but as it stands the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not in a good place.
So that’s why it’s so interesting that the fragility of reality is addressed here. It heavily implies that our heroes and whoever’s left to help are going to find a way to alter the nature of the Universe as a way of undoing Thanos’s devastating accomplishment. Thanos will likely find out about the truth and will confront the heroes once more, but by that point, our protagonists will likely have found a way to revive their fallen allies. The description alluding to sacrifices certainly suggests that not every hero will be making it out of the movie alive, so the stakes on the movie ought to be pretty high.
Avengers: Infinity War is playing in theaters. Avengers 4 will be released on May 3, 2019.
