A new TV spot was released for Avengers: Infinity War during Super Bowl 52 last night, and Marvel fans have already noticed quite a few interesting things from it. First, we finally get a look at Captain America’s new shield, but it turns out he has two new shields! Obviously, fans are going to miss the classic one, but I’m sure we will see it again at some point.
The images below reveal this:
Will we ever see Cap’s new shield again? Most likely. Okay, we all know we probably will see it again. But will we see Chris Evans again after Avengers 4? That seems to be up in the air at this point. In March of last year, Evans said he hopes to continue playing the character for a while:
“It’s really not up to me. My contract is up. I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘No more.’ I think Hugh Jackman has made 47 Wolverine movies, and they somehow keep getting better. It’s a character I love, and it’s a factory that really knows what they’re doing. The system is sound, over there. They make great movies. If they weren’t kicking out quality, I’d have a different opinion. But, everything Marvel does seems to be cinema gold. And like I said, I love the character. The only reason it would end is ’cause my contract is up. After Avengers 4, my contract is done. Talk to Marvel. If we engage further, I’d be open to it. I love the character. It’s almost like high school. You certainly always look to senior year, and then, all of a sudden, senior year happens and you’re like, ‘I don’t know if I’m ready to go.’ It’s tough thinking about not playing the guy.”
As we already know, Feige has said to expect something new for the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers 4:
“There will be two distinct periods. Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”
We’ll find out for sure when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th.
