Over the past few days we’ve heard confirmation that Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Don Cheadle (War Machine) are all set to feature in the currently-in-production Avengers 4, and now Sebastian Stan has revealed that he’ll also be back as The Winter Soldier in the currently untitled sequel.
“I still haven’t read a script for this next one,” Stan told CinemaBlend. “For this fourth one. All I know is I’m going down there in October, and that’s all I know. I still actually haven’t read a script for the last one. All I knew was what I was involved in, and I was kept on a very ‘need to know’ basis. Maybe that’s the norm. But it’s a family system. There’s a trust, and there’s a sense of knowledge between the writers and the directors, with Kevin Feige, that shows up.”
With all of these actors confirming their involvement in Avengers 4, it would seem we can write off the possibility of any of them dying in Avengers: Infinity War. However, Michael Rooker “confirmed” his involvement with Infinity War and, well… we know Yondu isn’t coming back.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
