Kevin Smith has just revealed a theory about the mysterious image posted by the Russos when the filming for Avengers 4 wrapped.
The picture shows a weirdly bright light framed too closely to make anything out clearly. While many fans claimed to see the Iron Man’s proton, Smith has a simpler answer.
“It looked like a taillight to me,” Smith said during the latest episode of the Hollywood Babble-On podcast. “Which, if you’ve wrapped, that’s like, ‘Taillights Fade,’ you’re done. But that’s just a guess.”
He also talked about how much he is looking forward to the film on his podcast.
“It makes me sad, man, because I want to see it but at the same time I’m like, ‘Oh, I don’t want them to be done,’ because it means there’s going to be a big shift to the Marvel Universe,” Smith said. “Some of those characters likely aren’t coming back.
“I can’t wait to see that movie,” Smith continued. “We just have to live until May, that’s it. I’ve watched Infinity War…hands down, 25 times since it came out [on home media]. It’s my go-to movie for whenever I’m bored, I’m like, ‘I’m going to freaking watch it.’ It’s so utterly freaking watchable. I look forward to the second part and I think they went back and did a bunch of reshoots because they knew afterwards that they had made something freaking massive. They knew they were making something huge, but like the ending of that movie captured people’s imaginations in such a big bad way that I think they set the bar higher for themselves than they were already prepared to go, so they went back in and now I can’t imagine that movie’s not going to be good one now. It’s the thing I looked more forward to than anything else in life and I’m going to make my own movie in January, so to heck with that, I want to see this in a big bad way,” he said. “If somebody was like, ‘You don’t ever get to make a movie again but you get to see Avengers 4,’ I’d be like, ‘Alright, done.’ These are my freaking stories. The way my grandmother felt about The Young and the Restless, that’s how I feel about these Marvel movies.”
Avengers 4 opens on May 3, 2019.
