Avengers 4 is less than a year away, but fans are still asking questions about the events of Avengers: Infinity War. One question that seems to pop up is about the lack of Captain America in the film. It’s been said that the next film will feature quite a bit of him, as he was one of the heroes to survive Thanos’ snap – along with Black Widow. These two characters will apparently be different the next time we see them, however.
As director Joe Russo explained to Wired:
“We’ve been fortunate enough to grow [Black Widow] over three films: Winter Soldier, Civil War and Infinity War. And in Winter Soldier, what we found so compelling about pairing her up with Captain America was that he is a service paragon of morality and she is a paragon of gray. But they’ve grown together, and I think when you find them in this movie and they’ve been the Secret Avengers for two years because they’re being hunted by Ross and the government, they’re like a tight-knit family now.
Her, Sam Wilson, and Steve Rogers. It’s hardened all of them in a way. You can’t go on the run without it affecting you emotionally, so I think all of those characters, but specifically the ones who survived Infinity War, Cap and Natasha, you will see them with a much harder edge.”
There are still many questions regarding Avengers 4, but thankfully, in less than a year, we’ll have all of the answers we need for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film – as it’s scheduled for release on May 3rd, 2019. Here’s hoping it lives up to the hype and delivers the finale for this part of the MCU that we’ve been hearing about for quite a while now.
