A photo featuring members of the Avengers 4 cast and crew has led to speculation that filmmaker Taika Waititi may reprise his Thor: Ragnarok role as Korg in the 2019 sequel.
Posted on Reddit, the photo captures a host of recognizable faces from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe, dubbed the "reshoot crew," at a restaurant opening.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo are overseeing reshoots for Avengers 4 in Atlanta. Waititi is pictured alongside the likes of Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Karen Gillan, hinting that Korg will be back in the sequel. Considering Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige admitted he has "plans" for Korg, a role in Avengers 4 could help bolster the cast after the cull of Infinity War.
Waititi stepped out from behind the camera of Thor: Ragnarok to play Korg, the rocky Kronan forced on Sakaar take part in the Grandmaster's Contest of Champions. Although Korg was very much alive at the end of Ragnarok, the destruction of the Asgardian vessel, followed by Thanos' finger snap, in Avengers: Infinity War left question surrounding his fate.
Waititi isn't the only potential spoiler gather from the photo, however, due to the unexpected appearance by Yvette Nicole Brown, who worked with the Russo brothers on Community. Cameos by stars of the NBC comedy have become something of an MCU fixture, with Danny Pudi appearing in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Jim Rash in Captain America: Civil War and Donald Glover in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Brie Larson, who had a recurring role on Community, will star next year in Captain Marvel.
Finally, eagle-eyed fans have noticed that Marisa Tomei and Pom Klementieff are also in the shot. The Russos confirmed that Tomei's Aunt May was luckier than Spider-Man and survived Thanos' snap, but audiences will remember that Klementieff's Mantis was left for dust by the Mad Titan.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers 4 stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Brie Larson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Evangeline Lilly and Josh Brolin. The film is set to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
