Latest set photos from Avengers 4 show Captain America wear an old costume. Chris Evans, the actor who plays Steve Rogers, seems to have worn his old costume from the 2012 movie The Avengers.
The photos shared by JustJared reveal that Captain America is not alone. He is accompanied by Paul Rudd’s character Ant-Man, who is seen wearing his new costume which will be unveiled in the upcoming movie Ant-Man and the Wasp. You can also see Mark Ruffalo, wearing a motion capture suit, Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark dressed in a navy blue dress with S.H.I.E.L.D. patch on his arm, despite the fact that S.H.I.E.L.D. had gone covert after Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
After The Avengers, Captain America has worn two more versions of the costume. Captain America: The Winter Soldier showed him in a costume which didn’t have any of the red, and was a darker blue-and-silver one. His costume in Avengers: Age of Ultron was the old star-spangled costume, with some visible changes, and he kept wearing the same in Captain America: Civil War. The promotional stuff of Avengers: Infinity War, shows him in the same costume, but, it has now become a little worn out, further, he has also become bearded and has got visibly darker hair.
Taking that into account, Captain’s costume variations might suggest that this could be a flashback scene. But, what makes things complicated is the appearance of Ant-Man, because he is wearing his Ant-Man and the Wasp suit, and also the fact that Ant-Man debuted only after Age of Ultron, which was nearly three years after The Avengers. Since the Time Stone has debuted in Doctor Strange, thus, Marvel Cinematic Universe might be readying a time travel concept.
Various other photos shared by the cast suggest that Avengers 4 will have a lot of flashbacks. Earlier there was a behind-the-scenes shared by Sebastian Stan in Tony Stark’s Hall of Armors which was blown up in Iron-Man 3. There have been reports of a scene based in World War II, a period which has not been featured after Captain America: The First Avenger, and then there are the rumors about Hayley Atwell’s comeback. We saw Peggy Carter die in Captain America: Civil War, her rumored comeback might be related to a flashback or some dream sequence.
The presently untitled Avengers: Infinity War sequel will release on May 3, next year. The film is directed by Russo brothers and it stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L.
