What Can The Official Cast List of ‘Avengers 4’ Tell Us About the Movie?

Avengers 4 has been wrapped in secrecy since before Infinity War came out. The title, which I figured would be released shortly after Avengers: Infinity War premiered, still hasn’t been released due to some unknown reason. And news of the film is few and VERY far between. Only recently did the film officially wrap shooting after having the Russo Brothers had to conduct some quick reshoots to tie up some loose ends but now that is into the editing stage rumors have begun circling that a trailer is being formatted for IMAX which means we may get some Avengers 4 news much sooner than we think.

But, until then, we can only speculate the movie’s title and storyline and I think I might have found some interesting clues lying within the official cast list on IMDB. So, let me share with you my intriguing findings.

1. Hiroyuki Sanada Has a Sizable Mystery Role in ‘Avengers 4’

Hiroyuki Sanada is one of my favorite Japanese actors. I loved his role in The Last Samurai and he was one of the only good things (actually the only good thing) about Rush Hour 3. To see that he’s going to have a role in Avengers 4 is beyond exciting for me.

And what’s even more exciting about it is where he’s placed in the list. He’s situated just beneath Jon Favreau/Happy Hogan and before Chadwick Boseman/Black Panther. But his role is being kept under wraps, as it won’t say on IMDB who he’s going to play.

This is so exciting! He could be playing a villain or he could be a brand new hero that’ll make his premiere in Avengers 4. Oh, I can’t wait to see who he’s going to play.

How Large Will Janet van Dyne’s Role Be in ‘Avengers 4’?

Ant-Man and the Wasp seems like a film with a story that’s very reserved in its own place and time and doesn’t have anything to do with the outside world but in actuality, Ant-Man and the Wasp may be much more important than it seems to be. In the film, we get a deeper look into the quantum realm where Janet van Dyne had resided for thirty years. In that time she was able to absorb the realm’s power and now she’s able to use those secrets in the world to aid others. But is that power part of the key to stopping Thanos in Avengers 4?

It’s common knowledge that those who were turned to dust in Infinity War will be resurrected which means Janet van Dyne will return. During those years in the quantum realm, she became powerful and that might mean that she’ll be one of the most important players in the film.

Of course, her screen time will probably be menial but I can’t wait to see what role she’ll specifically play in Avengers 4.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The MCU’s Phase 4 Needs To Bring These Twelve Characters To Life

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for ten years and it doesn’t look like the franchise is coming to an end anytime soon. With Avengers 4 about to bring a conclusion to a 22-movie storyline, a new journey is about to begin and that means new heroes will have to arrive to save the day. But who will those new heroes be? I’m not going to pretend that I’m an expert on Marvel characters (I am not) but I have done some research and discovered some very cool characters that could be central pieces to this evolving story. So, here are the characters I would love to see debut in the upcoming Phase 4 of the MCU.

1. Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)

The older Avengers’ reign is coming to an end (quickly) and that means we need new heroes to take their place. With Spider-Man’s debut in Captain America: Civil War the idea of the Young Avengers coming to fruition could easily become something very special and Kate Bishop/Hawkeye is a perfect candidate for that youthful organization.

It’s also perfect because her storyline is simple. She grew up idolizing Hawkeye (he was her favorite Avenger) and decided when she got old enough to follow his footsteps as a bow-wielding superhero. Sounds great if you ask me.

Is Captain Marvel Going To Be The Saving Grace of ‘Avengers 4’?

Captain Marvel, the heroine whose sudden importance to the MCU is a mystery in itself. Up until now superheroes in the MCU are usually introduced through subtle references or easter eggs that announce their arrival long before they eventually debut in a movie. Captain Marvel hasn’t been afforded that luxury.

Until Avengers: Infinity War next to nothing has been said about this superhero who’s supposedly the strongest Marvel hero to date in the current roster of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And then, with an awesome end-credits scene at the end of Infinity War, this hero that flies among the stars has suddenly been placed to the forefront of the conversation surrounding Avengers 4. But why?

Some fans are a bit peeved that she’s being introduced in such an abrupt fashion. They think Marvel is finding an excuse to make their first female standalone film so that the franchise will look as inclusive as possible rather than setting up something that’s legitimately important.

An ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Revelation

Even months after the highly-anticipated release of Avengers: Infinity War I’m still discovering new things. The latest revelation I obtained from my most recent viewing of the film is that War Machine and Iron Man, for the first time in the MCU, are never together in the movie.

Colonel Rhodes/War Machine was still on Earth and stood alongside Captain America in the fight against Thanos.

And Tony Stark/Iron Man was preoccupied in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy waiting for Thanos’s imminent arrival.

Avengers: Infinity War brought a lot of changes to the MCU–some more subtle than others–but it will be very interesting to see how Tony and Rhodes’ friendship will be after the nightmarish Infinity Snap. (I’m sure they will be even closer.)

Thanos may have won with the superheroes fractured and all over the place but when they inevitably unite and fight him all at once it is undoubtedly going to be the greatest battle in the MCU so far. (I’m. SO. EXCITED!!!)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Is This Tweet By Chris Evans A Spoiler for ‘Avengers 4’?

A little earlier this week Chris Evans announced in a tweet that he was done filming Avengers 4 but that wasn’t the issue that wracked the internet. It was the unsuspected gloominess of the tweet. Check it out.

From the sounds of it it pretty much seems that Chris Evans is, in fact, done playing the role of Captain America after all. It seems so sad to think that after Avengers 4 the man who has made Captain America a hero worth caring about is going to be gone. *sniffle*

But here’s the thing. Is he practically confirming the rumors and theories that say Captain America is going to die in Avengers 4? If so, I’m going to have to brace myself because the waterworks are undoubtedly going to spill and it’s not going to be pretty.

What do you think about this tweet? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

My Review of ‘Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors’

I’ve just recently gotten interested in Marvel’s animated cartoons that are available to watch on Disney XD and so I decided to watch Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors. I thought it was a tv show but it actually was a tv movie and for the most part I enjoyed it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the diverse cast of characters in the movie. Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl (oh my goodness, I love Squirrel Girl.) America Chavez and Patriot. Quake and Dante. They were all such incredible characters that really opened my mind to the possibilities in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ms. Marvel is undoubtedly going to make an appearance sooner rather than later in the MCU. Her character is such an important piece to The Avengers and with Captain Marvel arriving in her own standalone film next year I have a feeling we’ll see the Muslim teenage superhero by at least 2024 (which actually seems a long way from now when you look at it that way.)
