Marvel studios is perhaps the most meticulous and systematic when it comes to film-making. Even the tiniest detail or easter-egg has significance in the larger scheme of things. For instance, Infinity War prelude comic was released to explain Ant-Man and Hawkeye’s absence or Shuri’s work on Bucky etc. Several one-shots released by Marvel to fix plot holes.
At the end of Infinity War, when Thanos snapped his fingers, half of all superheroes turned into dust and coincidently the original six Avengers survived the big snap. The contracts of some of the biggest Avengers including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans etc. are officially coming to an end after Avengers 4. It’s widely believed that Cap won’t make it out alive and his mantle will be transferred to either Falcon or Bucky. Here’s what Evans has said till now:
“I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers as done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter, They said they had so many other characters to fit in, Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, and couldn’t get them all into one movie. (I came back) because it made sense. It’s going to wrap everything up.”
“It’s really not up to me. My contract is up. I’m not going to sit here and say ‘No more.’ I think Hugh Jackman has made 47 Wolverine movies, and they somehow keep getting better. It’s a character I love, and it’s a factory that really knows what they’re doing. The system is sound, over there. They make great movies. If they weren’t kicking out quality, I’d have a different opinion. But, everything Marvel does seems to be cinema gold. And like I said, I love the character. The only reason it would end is because my contract is up. After Avengers 4, my contract is done. Talk to Marvel. If we engage further, I’d be open to it. I love the character. It’s almost like high school. You certainly always look to senior year, and then, all of a sudden, senior year happens and you’re like, ‘I don’t know if I’m ready to go.’ It’s tough thinking about not playing the guy.”
Recently, he said:
“Well, the contracts done. A lot of our contracts are through. Myself, [Robert] Downey, [Chris] Hemsworth, we all kind of started roughly at the same time. I mean, I think we all through Avengers 4 kind of wrap it up. But at this point I don’t know what’s next, but yeah by 2019 that’s it… Well, we’ll see.” “
He added: You want to get off the train before they push you off,”
One thing is clear that Chris Evans will be seen in Avengers 4 for the last time. The question is – Will the Cap die? Well, there is confirmation of the death of a major Avenger and this casting call by Marvel proves it.
“Mourners: Looking for men and women over the age of 18, all ethnicities, to portray mourners. Especially looking for good character looks and expressive faces. This will be photo selected by the film’s directors! Size restrictions: Men no larger than 44 coat, women dress size 0-8. FOR NEW FACES ONLY! You cannot have worked on this project previously, or be booked on upcoming days. NO EXCEPTIONS!”
But, according to a new revelation, Cap can never die as he still managed to survive despite being frozen for decades. It’s not just super soldier serum but his special biology made up of indestructible microorganisms. He is much like a tardigrade. Well, let’s wait for more details to come out. The plot synopsis for Avengers 4 can be read below:
“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.”
The official movie synopsis of Avengers: Infinity War reads:
“Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment”.
