Anticipation is high for next year’s Avengers 4, and a new image has been released from the set. Although principal photography was completed last year, the cast and crew have assembled for additional shooting ahead of its May 2019 release.
The latest image comes via Benedict Wong, who plays Doctor Strange’s associate Wong. It’s the strange picture of Wong in make-up, with the back of his head being seemingly being pulled off by off-camera crew members. Why exactly he needs a replica skin isn’t clear, although some fans have speculated that it could be a Skrull disguise. In any case, Wong’s caption is giving nothing away: “Happy to be filming @avengers 4. But the cleaning of spoilers is a bit much.” Check the image out below.

Avengers 4 is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and it hits theaters on May 3, 2019. This latest image followed the cryptic picture tweeted last week by co-director Joe Russo, in which a series of letters ‘A’s were seemingly hidden. The movie is now only seven months from release, but despite rumors, we still don’t know its title yet.
Back in July, the Russo brothers appeared at San Diego Comic-Con, and spoke about how they were approaching the follow-up to the phenomenally successful Infinity War. “I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there,” he said. “You know, it’s always an agenda of ours to block out the outside noise because it can lead you to make some bad choices with the material. We’ve learned over the years just to listen to ourselves, and it’s great that there’s two of us that we can have conversations with each other.”
In related news, the first trailer for Captain Marvel was released last week. The movie hits theaters in March and is the first of three films within the MCU set for release in 2019, with Spider-Man: Far From Home arriving in July.
