Howard Stark To Appear In ‘Avengers 4’

John Slattery, who has played Howard in previous Marvel Studios movies, has reportedly been spotted on set with Robert Downey Jr during Avengers 4 reshoots.

To say Avengers 4 is an important movie is an understatement. Not only does it have to resolve plot threads from Infinity War, it has to serve as a cap on 22 movies’ worth of story. To that end, we may see some familiar faces return.

One such face is Howard Stark, father to Tony Stark AKA Iron Man. John Slattery, who has played Howard in previous Marvel Studios movies, has reportedly been spotted on set with Robert Downey Jr during Avengers 4 reshoots. A case labeled “BARF” was also spotted, in reference to the virtual reality technology Tony created in Captain America: Civil War.

What role the elder Stark has to play is uncertain, but it is more than likely he will play a key role in Thanos’ defeat.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Avengers: Infinity War is now on Digital and Blu-ray, while the Untitled Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
