Pictures from the set of Avengers 4 continue to raise questions about what the hell this film is supposed to be as new images reveal a scene that may be set in the 40’s-50’s (readers who are good with period cars, correct us on this please) being filmed. And get this, Captain America himself Chris Evans is allegedly on set for this sequence, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Here’s the set photo at hand.
As always with most Avengers 4 set photos, we’re devoid of almost any context in this picture. All we know is that it’s seemingly set close to the time period Steve Rogers was originally from, Chris Evans is on set for this and that there are casting calls for scenes set in the 60’s. Previous Avengers 4 photos reveal several callbacks to previous films. In particular, the Battle of New York where the Avengers fight Loki and the Chitauri. However, we do have a bit of context for those “flashbacks”; Tony Stark is using his B.A.R.F. technology to relive and review experiences from the past. This could very well be one of the instances where Tony digs deep into Steve’s psyche for some new found knowledge about the past.
Or it could be related to that alternate timeline theory where Thanos gives Steve Rogers what he wanted all along; a life with Peggy in the past, creating a future with no Captain America to stop him.
