AceShowbiz - As "Avengers 4" continues its production in Fayetteville, GA, a new batch of set photos have made their way out online. Taken from the set on Saturday, October 7, the photos appeared to confirm that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye would be dropping his current alter ego and adopting the mantle of Ronin.
Rumors of Clint Barton ditching his current superhero persona to become the masterless samurai warrior surfaced last month after the Hawkeye depicter Renner was seen sporting a new haircut on the set of the film. And in the latest set photos, the actor was spotted with his drastic new 'do while sporting a particularly interesting sleeve tattoo.
Aside from Renner, other stars on the set of the upcoming film included Chris Evans (Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Benner a.k.a. The Hulk), Don Cheadle (James Rhodes a.k.a. War Machine), Karen Gillan (Nebula) and Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man).
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the fourth "Avengers" movie is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on May 3, 2019. It's written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the writing duo behind three "Captain America" films and "Thor: The Dark World" as well as "The Chronicles of Narnia" film franchise.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Before "Avengers 4" arrives, fans can next see "Avengers: Infinity War", which is due out on May 4 next year. Set four years after the events of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", the Avengers, torn apart after the events of "Captain America: Civil War", join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to battle Thanos, who is trying to amass the Infinity Stones for a gauntlet that will allow him to inflict his will on all reality.
