So could the following set pics of Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders actually be for Avengers 4? Or are they for Captain Marvel?
Well, it's currently unknown.
What may give us a clue is the fact that Nick Fury is wearing his eye patch.
Samuel L. Jackson recently said Captain Marvel is an origin story and takes place prior to Nick Fury losing his eye.
So if Nick Fury has the eye patch--we can do the math.
Samuel L. Jackson & Cobie Smulders spotted on set in Atlanta on Sunday for what is said to be an upcoming #Marvel project. Could it be for #Avengers4 ? Will have to wait and see. pic.twitter.com/o0pMXxBuXG— Reggie's Take.com (@ReggiesTake) January 22, 2018
It's possible Marvel Studios may simply be filming the actors' scenes for both The Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel at the same time, so they didn't have to interrupt their schedules too much. Scenes could be filmed for The Avengers 4, and then they could go on to do Captain Marvel or even mix them up as that is how they reportedly filmed Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.
Hopefully additional set pics will eventually be released offering a further explanation.
Captain Marvel has a March 8, 2019 release directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck also starring Jude Law as Walter Lawson / Mar-Vell, DeWanda Wise in an unknown role, and Ben Mendelsohn is rumored to play the villain, Skrull commander / leader.
The Avengers: Infinfinity War has a May 3, 2018 release, with The Avengers 4 hitting May 4, 2019.
