Fans have been trying to figure out how the deaths at the end of Infinity War will be reversed. They are assuming all the heroes will be brought back to stand in the final battle against Thanos.
This has always sounded a little optimistic and predictable.
Now the star who plays one of the leading Avengers has suggested that maybe we won’t see them all back on the screen in Avengers 4.
Has Marvel still got one last cruel trick to play on audiences?
Tom Holland posted a video backstage at the Seattle Comic Con this weekend which leaked teh upcoming Spder-Man 2 Far From Home title.
He says: “I am at the ACE Seattle ComicCon having a great time, meeting everyone. It’s going really well.
“I wanted to apologise because there’s no real revelations coming out this weekend about Spider-Man 2. I don’t know much about it. I’m a little confused because, um, I died, so I don’t really know how it all comes into play but… I do know I’ve got the new script. I’m super-excited to read it and it’s it’s gonna be great. So, yeah, Spider-Man 2, let’s do this.”
What is also startling is his reference to not knowing how he will be brought back to life. Avengers 4 has already finished principal photography. Was Holland not there?
Far From Home will be the title for the 23rd movie in the MCU and Sony producer Amy Pascal said the film: “will start a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story.”
What if the missing heroes are NOT shown until the very end of Avengers 4?
Or will Peter Parker somehow reappear at the start of Spider-Man Homecoming 2 not knowing how he was brought back?
This feeds into another powerful theory that many of the original Avengers, who all survived The Snap, will sacrifice themselves or perhaps trade their lives for those of their fallen comrades.
Will the return of ongoing MCU heroes like Spidey, Black Panther and the Guardians of the Galaxy only happen at the end as the others leave?
Of course, Holland could be bluffing or Marvel could have shot alternate scenes or isolated scenes out of context so not even the stars know how their characters have been brought back.
Knowing Holland’s loose lips that would certainly make sense…
AVENGERS 4 IS OUT ON APRIL 27, 2019. SPIDER-MAN: ‘FAR FROM HOME’ IS OUT ON JULY 5, 2019
