AceShowbiz - "Avengers 4" isn't coming sooner than scheduled. The movie has been slated for May 3, 2019 release in the U.S. since it was announced back in late 2014, but rumors sparked earlier today that Disney and Marvel may have changed the date.
The speculations arose after IMAX released its quarterly financial, which lists all upcoming films to be released in IMAX theaters in 2019. In the said document, the release date for the yet-untitled fourth "Avengers" movie is different from the official date currently touted by Marvel. It's listed for April 2019.
Marvel previously moved "Avengers: Infinity War" original release date from May 4 to April 27 this year, so fans were even more convinced that the studio made the same move for the follow-up film.
However, that's not the case. Before fans could rejoice, IMAX has clarified that the company's 10Q financial report referred to when "Avengers 4" would first appear in IMAX's global theater network. It has been known that the studio usually releases its movies earlier in international markets like France, Germany and the U.K., so the April release refers to releases dates in these certain countries.
In other words, "Avengers 4" release is not moved up in the U.S. and is still set to bow on its original date.
Plot details of "Avengers 4" are still kept under wraps, but Chris Hemsworth has teased that it would be more shocking than "Infinity War". "If you were shocked by ['Infinty War'], I think the second one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely," said the Thor depicter.
"That's what kind of blew me away the first time I read both scripts, is how they managed to orchestrate so many different characters but give them each their own separate shots and moments, and have it be elevated and feel fresh and unique, not just like a messy, thrown together assembly of these guys," he further told Esquire.
The official cast is not announced yet either, as some major superhero characters appeared to die at the end of "Infinity War". There have been rumors that Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye as well as Paul Rudd's Ant-Man would be featured in the upcoming installment of the superhero team-up movie series.
