It’s been a couple months since Avengers: Infinity War shattered our expectations and took a dark turn in delivering a stunning ending. We’re still grappling with the downfall, but that hasn’t stopped us from looking forward to Avengers 4 even though we hardly know anything about it. A new leak might finally give us concrete details about what to expect.
A Reddit user under the name abigfriend posted a long list of plot points that will supposedly be in Avengers 4.
With half of the Avengers gone, a new crop of characters will have to take center stage and among them will be Nebula. She will help Tony Stark get back to Earth—the last time we saw him he was stuck on Titan—and will have a big role in bringing down Thanos. Infinity War focused on Thanos’s relationship with Gamora and Avengers 4 will take a similar approach with Nebula.
Early set pics of Avengers 4 revealed that the Battle of New York will be revisited and the way it’ll be done will be through the Quantum Realm with the help of Pym Tech. In short, the original Avengers will use the new realm to travel through time in an attempt to collect the Infinity Stones, which will erase the stones Thanos possesses in the timeline set forth in Infinity War. They will then attempt to recreate their own Gauntlet to reverse what happened in Infinity War.
Eventually, Thanos figures out the Avengers’s plan and uses the Infinity Gauntlet to chase them through the Quantum Realm, but it proves to be futile as they succeed in reversing time back to the Battle of Wakanda. This time, the Avengers prevail by destroying three Infinity Stones.
That’s quite a theory that sounds actually plausible. In case you are unfamiliar with the comic book events of Infinity War, Nebula does play a big role in taking down Thanos and it seems the movies will borrow this storyline for Avengers 4.
Other details the post highlights is Captain Marvel’s place in the story and how powerful she will be, confirmation Captain America will indeed die saving Tony and the revelation that Iron Man will wield the Infinity Gauntlet.
Who knows if anything revealed is remotely true, but there is one marker we can use to confirm the validity of the source. Two of the points pointed out are in Ant-Man and the Wasp. First, the post-credit scene will see Hawkeye’s family being dusted and second, the title for Avengers 4 will be revealed at the end of the movie with the now ubiquitous Marvel send off, “Ant-Man and the Wasp will return in…”
There’s a lot more details in the post that was just too much to cover. You can check it out and see if you believe the alleged plot detailed out for Avengers 4.
As always, take these as rumors and fun speculation, nothing more.
We’ll see how everything plays out when Ant-Man and the Wasp opens July 6.
