AceShowbiz - Two more familiar faces apparently have been confirmed to return to "Avengers 4". New set photos have surfaced online featuring Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders, who play Nick Fury and Maria Hill respectively in the MCU.
The photos, which were taken on Sunday, January 21 in Atlanta, Georgia, reportedly were from the set of "an upcoming Marvel movie." It's unlikely that they were filming "Captain Marvel" though, as it has been confirmed Jackson will appear without Fury's trademark eye-patch and that the first female-centric Marvel movie starring Brie Larson won't start filming until late March.
With that said, it's safe to assume that the two actors were filming a scene together for the highly-anticipated "Avengers 4". But it's also possible that they were doing some reshoots on "Avengers: Infinity War", which were scheduled to begin following the end of principal photography on the 2019 sequel.
In the photos, Jackson and Smulders, who were dressed as their respective characters, looked quite bewildered as they gazed upon something potentially massive above them. There were also some intriguing pics featuring Jackson without his character's eye-patch, though those were probably just taken in between shots.
Aside from Jackson and Smulders, other stars confirmed to return to "Avengers 4" include Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Evangeline Lilly as Wasp, Tom Holland as Spider-Man and more.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista and Pom Klementieff join the cast as the members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, while Benedict Cumberbatch appears as Doctor Strange. Meanwhile, Brie Larson will reprise her role as Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel after being introduced in "Infinity War".
No plot details are known regarding the fourth "Avengers" movie. "Infinity War", meanwhile, brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
Directed by the Russo brothers, "Infinity War" is coming in theaters across the nation this year on May 4, while the yet-to-be-titled fourth "Avengers" film is set for a May 3, 2019 release.
