Avengers 4 set pictures reveal returning cast members

Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and more will be back from Avengers 4. New pictures from the movie's Atlanta set (via WeGotThisCovered) reveal some of the film's returning actors, who also include Sean Gunn, who plays Kraglin and does motion capture for Rocket in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, and Terry Notary, who will take on the role of the villain Corvus Glaive.

We're still slowly learning which Marvel actors will return for Avengers 4, although we do know that just about everyone under the sun has been confirmed for next year's Avengers: Infinity War. That movie has more than two dozen heroes currently confirmed alongside a host of side characters, plus whatever surprises Marvel has up its sleeve.

Infinity War will need all the heroes it can get to fight against Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his villainous lieutenants the Black Order, who include Notary's Glaive. While we know at least a few superheroes will survive the movie, all signs are pointing to the next pair of Avengers movies being fairly fatal for Marvel's biggest names. (Ruffalo even confirmed as much in an interview, saying that "everybody dies" at the end of Infinity War.) 

"They're all big," co-director Joe Russo previously said of the films. "It's important for both movies to be distinctly different. It's important for them to have different tones, and different narratives, and different surprises for the audiences. We've worked hard with [writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley] at ensuring that the films are tonally different and structurally different."

Very little is known about the fourth film at this point, although Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says it will remain untitled for quite a while, as the title is a spoiler for Infinity War. Captain America: Civil War's Joe and Anthony Russo take on co-directing duties for both of the next two upcoming Avengers movies. Avengers: Infinity War is set for a May 4, 2018 release, while the untitled fourth Avengers film will follow on May 3, 2019.
