Avengers: Infinity War left us on an intense cliffhanger with half of the universe being wiped out and all. Since then, there has been an insane amount of speculation toward the next Avengers installment surrounding some sort of time jump. To back this theory up, there were many set photos with some of Earth’s mightiest heroes wearing some sort of device on their hands. A time jump is definitely not too taboo in a world where Tony Stark can build a whole suit out of microbots, and now we may have a bit of confirmation.
The Huffington Post was able to sit down with the Russo Brothers, where they then expanded on the idea of a time jump and how it is very possible. Check out what they said below:
Here’s the thing, I think it’s important to remember anything is possible in the MCU [Marvel Cinematic Universe],” Anthony said. “Just because there’s a sequel on the books doesn’t mean … people become accustomed to time moving linearly in the MCU. That doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. There’s a lot of very inventive ways of where the story can go from here.
One notable phrase is the “anything is possible in the MCU.” That makes it seem very promising that this time jump is very possible. He also makes it clear that sequels don’t work on any timeline. A linear timeline is nowhere in the rulebook of MCU filmmaking and they will take full advantage of that it seems.
Now, with all this being said, this doesn’t mean that they will for sure use a time jump. However, it’s all starting to line up now. From the set photos of the heroes in their New York battle gear from the first Avengers, to the theories, and now to this, it seems highly likely that we will see a time jump in Avengers 4. The Russo Brothers have established themselves as quite the shock factor filmmakers now and they can essentially do whatever they see fit to serve the story.
We have less than a year until we see Avengers 4 and I already don’t want to wait any longer! The theories have been so well developed and the anticipation is unbelievable. Until then, be sure to stay tuned to SuperBroMovies for any further news on Avengers 4! While you’re staying tuned, let us know your theories on the next Avengers film! – JB Baker
