'Avengers 4' Directors Respond to Time-Travel Theory

While some on-set pictures have led to a speculation that the movie would include a time-traveling element, the Russos hint that it may relate to a certain technology previously shown in 'Civil War'.

AceShowbiz - Earlier this month, pictures from the set of "Avengers 4" in Atlanta, Georgia leaked online, showing Chris Evans' Captain America wearing the original costume that he sported in "Captain America: The First Avenger". This led to a speculation that the movie would feature a time-traveling element.

While usually keeping quiet about plot details of the fourth "Avengers" film, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have addressed this fan theory. During an appearance on MTV's "Happy Sad Confused" podcast, the director duo hinted that the particular scene might have something to do with a certain technology shown in a previous Marvel film.

"It's interesting, because yes, there are photos that always leak, and then there's lots of conjecture about what those photos mean," Anthony Russo said, before adding, "Certainly there is a five-minute sequence in 'Civil War' around a piece of technology that was laid in for a very specific reason. So if you go back and look at that film, you may get a hint as to a direction."

The technology he was referring to is Binary Augmented Retro-Framing (B.A.R.F.), which Tony Stark presents at MIT early into "Captain America: Civil War". In the scene, Stark shows vivid visuals of the last time he saw his parents, Howard and Maria Stark, before they died on December 16, 1991.

This, of course, could be just the Russos' strategy to distract fans from the circulating theory and to prevent the plot details from being spoiled. Until the real answer is revealed in the film which is due out May 3, 2019 in the U.S., you can seen your favorite Marvel heroes in "Avengers: Infinity War" which is set to be released on May 4 this year.
