This is your requisite spoiler warning, so proceed at your own peril.

Leaks from a source previously proven to be accurate suggest game-changing events might happen in Avengers 4. According to a Reddit user who had posted information that turned out to be accurate ahead of the release of Avengers: Infinity War, has now said that Captain America will die at the end of Avengers 4.

The post also verifies the popular theory that the surviving Avengers will travel back in time in the fourth Avengers movie, billed as a ‘significant conclusion’ by Disney chief Bob Iger. Leaked set photos reveal that the Avengers return to the Battle of New York, which took place during 2012’s The Avengers, but this time they’re joined by Ant-Man. The post says that Tony Stark builds his own version of the Infinity Gauntlet, and goes back in time, ‘possibly to retrieve the Infinity Stones,’ according to a Huffinton Post article.

The person behind the post, a user who goes by the name ilurkthingsreborn, had earlier leaked that Spider-Man would die in Tony Stark’s arms in Infinity War.

He says about the fourth Avengers movie that a scene involving Captain America, Thor and Thanos will lead to Thor getting ‘blown away’ and Cap wielding Thor’s old hammer, Mjolnir, finally proving that he is indeed worthy. In the fight that ensues, Cap will be killed by Thanos.

Cap’s worthiness was first suggested in Avengers: Age of Ultron, when he tries to lift Mjolnir and manages to make it budge slightly, unlike the other Avengers. “I was told that at one point bearded Steve and Thor have a fight scene against Thanos where Thor gets blown away and Cap actually ends up weilding (sic) Mjolnir because he has finally been found worthy. However I was told that Thanos does end up killing Cap,” the post read.

But Mjolnir was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok by Thor’s sister Hela, which sent him on a quest to get a new weapon in Infinity War, Stormbreaker. This points to more time travel. But the HuffPost article digs deeper. It refers back to a a two-year old interview with Avengers directors Joe & Anthony Russo in which they were asked directly if Captain was worthy of wielding Mjolnir. They gave rather cagey answers.

“I don’t know that might be a ...” Anthony Russo said, “that might be a question for future storytellers.”

“Might be a little too specific for us to answer,” Joe Russo said.

The leaked set pictures confirm that Thor would have Mjolnir in Avengers 4. A more recent plot revelation by Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed that Pepper Potts and Tony Stark will be parents to a child in Avengers 4, suggesting a time jump will take place.

So where does that leave us? Captain America is dead, something that was hinted at before Infinity War as well. Tony Stark is a dad. And Hulk, by the way, loses an arm, according to the same Reddit post.

Avengers 4 is scheduled for a May 3 release. It has been touted as the grand conclusion to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it.
