Until Marvel gives us the title, we should just refer to Avengers 4 as “ Avengers 4 Theory ” because that is all what seems to be happening with the final movie of Phase 3 right now! People have come up with countless theories trying to predict what the real plot of the upcoming mega crossover event will be hiding for us.
Right now we have a new one which does claim something which is unique as compared to all other theories out there. Coming from a Redditor named filopj, it seems that Avengers 4 will not take the Time Travel aspect very deeply, and rather all that is just a diversion from what the real matter is. Here’s what the redditor talks about:
“If I am being honest, I am not to fond of the time travel theory. I feel that it would negate the deaths of Infinity War and cause inconsistencies in the timeline. It also doesn’t feel like something the Russo brothers would do. If anything, I think that they want us to think that it’s time travel so that they defy our expectations. However, I have come up with a possible theory as to what may happen. Now I don’t have much evidence to back up my claim (other than the fact that everyone will be coming back) at the moment as I am just typing from my head. I only intend to discuss a possibility that could happen.”
The Reddit user theorises the fact that the Avengers who survived the snap will now be taking on the ones who were dusted, as those dead beats are going to become Thanos’ new mind controlled/soul controlled army. Here’s what the theory says:
“Now if you delve into what the Infinity Stones can do, you would know that the Soul Stone can bring the dead back to life and the Mind Stone can control another’s actions. You probably see where I’m going here. I believe that Thanos will resurrect all the heroes he has dusted and will use either the Mind or Soul Stone to control them and have them act as his minions. If you want, you can also add that he uses the Power Stone to enhance their powers. Or have the Power Stone amplify the affects of the Mind Stone. They could be tasked with keeping the universes population at half but more importantly fight off the Avengers should they make an attempt to steal the Infinity Stones.
This would return all of those that were dusted and would add a twist to things. The only way to break the spell would be to either destroy the Mind Stone or steal it, which is no easy task. When they break from their trance, we could get the epic shot of all the heroes that Sebastian Stan teased.”
It would obviously be a great twist, and a sort of “get away” from what people are thinking about the film, but it will be a little comic book cliché if this happens. Sure we would love to see heroes fight heroes again, as this roster of Civil War (if it happens) is going to be even bigger than what we saw earlier. Also the fact that the films has lesser this time, and to fill in their shoes without bringing the older villains back, this could actually be done pretty well.
Thanos then losing control of the heroes will bring us to the shot that Sebastian Stan teased about very conveniently, but all things considered, people are going to be really frustrated if this is the direction that Avengers 4 actually takes.
Also, there are major evidences out there which cannot be negated by pitting the heroes against each other. Time Travel will be there as teased and reported multiple times, and the movie will largely have to do with the intricacies of the Quantum Realm, which will be responsible for bringing the heroes back to the world of the living.
Avengers 4 will arrive on May 3, 2019. Here’s the official Synopsis:
“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.”
