Warning! Spoilers for Avengers 4 lie below!
Avengers: Infinity War won’t hit theaters until next year, but Marvel Studios has already started work on its second-half. Avengers 4 entered production earlier this month as its new sets went up at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta. And, thanks to some new set photos, fans can get a sneak-peek at Black Widow’s look in the film.
E! Online managed to get a hold of photos showing Scarlett Johansson walking around set. The images do not show the actress dressed in her character’s get-up. Instead, Johansson is seen wearing lounge clothes, but her back seems to be causing a frenzy.
The set photos show Johansson rocking a large tattoo on her back. The actress is no stranger to getting inked as she has several tattoos in real-life, but fans are wondering if the new ink could be part of her Avengers 4 look. After all, the film’s current sound-stages have Japanese sets built on them. The neon stages brought a piece of Japan to Atlanta, and reports suggest the Black Widow was seen filming with supposed members of the Yakuza. If the former Avenger needs an in with the Japanese mafia for any reason, getting a tattoo would be required given the gang’s ties with body ink.
Rumors about the Yakuza’s presence in Avengers 4 have circulated for some time now. Reports about the gang’s introduction cropped up this year after a casting call looking for extras to play Japanese gangsters went public. The film’s Japanese setting has also risen a few eyebrows, so fans are interested to see just how Black Widow may disguise herself to slink into the cutthroat mafia’s corner.
Avengers: Infinity War premieres in theaters May 4, 2018. Avengers 4 is slated to hit theaters a year later in 2019.
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.
