Next year, i.e. 2019, will see a number of the largest current film and television franchises winding down to some sort of logical conclusion, including climaxes to Game of Thrones, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the latest Star Wars trilogy, and now, we've been given a new hint as to what will happen in the one of these that will end soonest.
With Star Wars Episode IX scheduled to release at the end of next year and Game of Thrones Season 8's air date yet to be announced (fans are worried that despite the show skipping 2018, it'll still release around its usual May-July slot), it's likely that it'll be Avengers 4, which is scheduled to release on May 3, 2019, that will come out first, which works out well for those of us who don't like to mix pleasures, as there will be nothing to distract from the one-two punch of Captain Marvel and the as-yet-untitled Avengers finale.
While Game of Thrones has been finishing its filming for a while now, with various actors penning goodbye posts -- Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys was the first and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) was the most recent, making his announcement implicitly by shaving off his beard -- it is only now that we've received indication that Avengers 4 has also 'wrapped'.
That announcement has come from the helmers of the film, the Russo Brothers, who have also directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, in addition to Avengers: Infinity War. The Russos took to Twitter to share an image with the word #wrapped, leading to intense speculation and guesswork.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) there's a lot to interpret, as the image that the Russos have posted is rather cryptic.
It is essentially a cylindrical shaped-object, resembling a cricket pad, which is emitting a pitched blue light -- resembling the Space stone -- particularly from one side. There may also be something around it as there are fragments of light visible.
Here are some of the interpretations:
One person thinks it's Thanos being arrested by the Police:
One person thinks it resembles the experiment that saw Steve Rodgers becoming Captain America:
Someone thinks it's War Machine's cannon:
Also, Iron Man's cannon:
Someone thinks it's Vision's resurrection:
Some have analysed the picture forensically, with one determining that it's a new shield:"
Someone else has a more innocuous solution:
