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.

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.

Avengers: Age of Ultron introduced three new heroes, Scarlet Witch, Vision, and Quicksilver, who ended up perishing in the final act of the film. Since his death there hasn’t been a lot of reference to him or even emotional suggestion from Wanda toward her dead brother in the later films but with Avengers 4 supposedly being the end of this current era of Marvel movies all things are possible. Such as a surprise return from everyone’s favorite speedster, Quicksilver.
There have been several rumors that Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been sighted on the Avengers 4 set but that might not mean anything. Yondu actor Michael Rooker was caught on the set of Avengers: Infinity War which gave fans reason to believe he would be part of the superhero ensemble. That’s why everyone was so shocked when he ended u dying in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
But here’s the question; it’s not so much will Quicksilver return in Avengers 4 rather than should he return? Honestly, I think it would be nice to see him again.
He brought such an awesome dynamic to the Avengers team and when he died it was rather unfortunate. But I’m pretty sure that if he does return it’ll either be in a flashback or a part of the rumored time-travel theory that’s supposed to take place in Avengers 4. Will he be brought back from the dead like the other deceased heroes? Not likely and for one simple reason.
